Barack Obama’s Lack of Confidence Shows
Barack Obama has chosen a running mate!!! The long-anticipated moment has arrived. It is not Hillary. It is Senator Joe Biden, another old white guy.
Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against another old white guy… I am supporting McCain. But as a proponent for change, shouldn’t Obama have picked someone different? He picks a senator that has 30 years of experience, served at various times as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, and has twice sought the White House.
Is this not the complete opposite from Obama’s message of, “Change… you can believe in?” This just reaffirms my idea that Obama is definitely about change: changing his idea, mind, policy, and decisions if he feels it will get more votes. In fact, he has been different than most other candidates. There is not one thing he has stuck by firmly throughout the entire election race.
How will Biden affect Obama’s chances? Well, according to Ron Fournier, an Associated Press writer, Biden said in a 2007 interview on ABC that he said he would stand by an earlier statement that Obama was not ready to serve as president. I guess Obama thought Biden would make him ready.
Chalk another one up for the Democrats… say one thing and do another!
