Obama almost threatens the Tennessee GOP

May 19, 2008 at 8:11 pm 1 comment

By now, most people who follow the election trails have heard about Obama’s almost threats against the Tennessee GOP for their video they have created featuring Michelle Obama’s statement, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.”

This statement has been played out by now by most medias, but Obama made an inexperienced mistake by saying, “If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful because that I find unacceptable, the notion that you start attacking my wife or my family…” Now, Barack, when you send your wife out there to speak for you, campaign for you, and make statements on your behalf, you are throwing her to the wolves. When she speaks for you, she is no different from any other spokesperson on your team.

I am proud of Obama for standing up for his wife and family. Any stand-up guy would defend his family, such as Obama has, but a presidential candidate is in a different world. He should not allow her to campaign for him if he doesn’t want someone to comment on her remarks. Unfortunately, this is yet another example of his inexperience in politics. I am afraid that he Obama is elected president, every time another country or leader makes a comment about him (although he voices his opinion all of the time), he may run to the teacher and tattle instead of handling the situation like a real leader!

    While I have not followed much of the Obama saga directly, (I vote Republican across the board as a rule) I did hear about Mrs. Obama’s comments. I agree that it is an excellent character trait to have for a man to defend his family. However, in this matter I feel that Mr. Obama defended his wife in order to draw attention away from a potentially damaging statement that his wife had made while representing him. I would be more interested in an explanation as to why she made her statement and what she meant by what she said. After all, first ladies make appearances and speak to the public on a regular basis. I am of the opinion that “the two shall become one”. Therefore if he were elected, she would be elected as well. In order to make an informed decission when casting ones vote for the presidency, it would be helpful to know if the potential first lady were going to spew verbal diarrhea about our nation at every luncheon and ribbon cutting she attended. I mean, if the presidents wife has not always been proud to be an American then in my mind, she has not earned the right to live next to him in the White House.
