Barack Obama ‘Frighteningly Inexperienced’ … We Live in a Post 9-11 World


Would corporate America hire a raw recruit just out of college with a couple years of experience in a support capacity to head up a multi-million dollar business venture as their competition was taking away market share, the Fortune 500 business was in a sales lull and cutbacks were being made by the thousands? Of course not. We live in a post 9–11 world where America and Americans cannot afford to have anyone learn on the job as President. Have you forgotten?

The LEFT calls the inexperience tag on Obama the newest attack line. It is not an attack line, if it is true! How does one know? When one defends Obama’s inexperience by attacking the experience of the person making the allegation.

One might ask, what about the presidency of George W. Bush, he was inexperienced. First of all, this isn’t about GWB. It is all about Barack Obama.Yes GWB was inexperienced, but he had also been a governor of one of the largest states in the US which is much more than a freshman senator and being 1 of 100.  Also, the election took place prior to September 11, 2001. All things changed after that and experience as the Commander and Chief is a prerequisite. Looking back on events, if 9–11 had occurred prior to the election of 2000, one might say with certainty that the incumbent VP Al Gore would probably have won the election. Experience does matter.

If experience does matter in every other aspect of our lives then why is America even considering the notion that a “frighteningly inexperienced” Barack Obama could and should be President? It’s common sense folks …

“He’s not listening to the whole of what the Iraqi government was saying — he’s hearing what he wanted to hear and what he thought would help him politically, which get backs to Senator Obama as a candidate for the presidency,” Wilson said. “He has his finger in the wind, trying to figure out which way the wind is blowing, and he is not leading.

“He is no way sophisticated enough, I don’t think — I mean he is frighteningly inexperienced when it comes to international affairs and national security policy,” she added. “And he heard what he wanted to hear from the Iraqi government, without any context around it, and took that simple message and decided it helped him politically. That’s the antitheses of what we should expect from a president of the United States.”

The fact of the matter is and when it comes down to it that America cannot afford to have an inexperienced President at this point and time with global terrorism. Americans would not hire inexperienced people to do jobs they know takes experience in every day life, so why is it OK in Obama’s case?  Cheap talk of change means nothing and one trip to Iraq and Afghanistan does not an expert on foreign policy make. Islamofascists want change to …

      remember jimmy carter? as fine a man as you could ask for, and we damn near didn’t survive his administration. obama doesn’t even have as much on the ball or behind him for support as carter did, so the results will be even more disastrous. obama is a world class orator, but definitely not oval office time for this man and the clowns he’ll be listening to.

      with all of the experience that George Bush had, he still ruined America. Remember guys Hillary Clinton tried to run on experience, this is a year about change get with the program

      I cannot believe that this bunch is still supporting Bush.
      Obama may be young an inexperienced, but Bush has managed to turn the whole world against us. That most certainly does not compliment his “experience”.
      Would it not be wonderful to once again have a western world which works together for the good of everyone and not just for everyone to be made permanently aware that the US kicks ass, and if GB says build atomic power stations (to stop global warming), then you had better start building them, or go and work in Iran (who are exempt from that of course).

      These posts sicken me. Not because of the Bush-bashing, but because of DeShawn’s quote:

      “he (still) ruined America”

      DeShawn, I would invite you to break out of your tiny little me-me-me us-us-us environment, and look outside to the true “world.”

      When people talk about countries being “ruined”, I think of Congo, Uganda or Sudan. Places where people are RAPED, infected with aids or STD’s by enemy troops as part of their war tactics.

      Thank God above that the USA is far from being “ruined”, and Heaven help us if Obama takes office.

      Many countries hated the USA far longer than GWB has been in office. And if you think the world hates the USA now, just think about this. One of the biggest complaints about America is: our arrogance.

      That’s the real problem with Barack Obama’s inexperience – the inexperience by itself is surely something to consider but when you add his arrogance to his inexperience it shows that it’s not a job he will “grow into”. Obama won’t learn because he’s sure he already knows. Look at his statements about how he knows more than those on the foreign affairs committee with him. Look how he refuses to admit he was wrong about the surge. Look how he insists that we should be concentrating on Afghanistan and yet he voted not to fund troops to Afghanistan!

      A man who refuses to admit his errors is bound to repeat them – over and over and over.

      “Heaven help us if Obama takes office.”

      What exactly will Obama ‘personally’ do that would cause one to evoke the help of God if he takes office? Exacly what would that be?

      His “experience” led Mr McCain to make these statements:

      “But I believe, Katie, that the Iraqi people will greet us as liberators.” [NBC, 3/20/03]

      “It’s clear that the end is very much in sight.” [ABC, 4/9/03]

      “There’s not a history of clashes that are violent between Sunnis and Shiahs. So I think they can probably get along.” [MSNBC, 4/23/03]

      “This is a mission accomplished. They know how much influence Saddam Hussein had on the Iraqi people, how much more difficult it made to get their cooperation.” [This Week, ABC, 12/14/03]

      “I’m confident we’re on the right course.” [ABC News, 3/7/04]

      I guess what his “experience” told him was wrong.

      Ever hear of Ahmad Chalabi, McCain’s buddy? I guess Mr McCain’s “experience” didn’t quite work there either…”The general charge that Mr. Chalabi provided Iran with critical American intelligence secrets was widely reported last month after the Bush administration cut off financial aid to Mr. Chalabi’s organization, the Iraqi National Congress, and American and Iraqi security forces raided his Baghdad headquarters.” NY Times 6/2/04

      Hey katablog – One of the biggest threats to our country’s security is our open border. In 21 years as an Arizona politician, what has McCain done to close off the Arizona border? Nada. 21 years and not a darn thing.

      In a take off on Obama – Is this “experience” you can believe in?

    7. Rusty Bridges on July 24th, 2008 6:38 am


      You are quoting McCain from things he beleived in over four years ago.

      McCain has been trying to do something about illegal immigration and has run into nothing but dem opposition.

      It didn’t take a swarm of bad publicity for McCain to recognize the problem with Mr. Chalabi.

      The civilized population of Iraq did greet us as liberators. Most still don’t want us to leave.

      The end was in sight until the Al-queda influx nobody including your messiah could not see coming.

      There has been a long history of Sunni and Shia getting along with each other. That is until you remove the dictator that would crush any uprising with chemical weapons. Who knew?

      Mission accomplished? Yes, the war against Saddam’s regime was swift and text book. What all you left wing crybabys forget is that it was also said that the rebuilding, and that just doesn’t just mean broken buildings, would take a long time.

      Heres a new tactic you can try, why don’t you defend Obama instead of bashing McCain for things he beleived in.

      When Obama grows a set, I’ll consider him as a possible candidate.

      if only our politicians were as interested in our
      own country as they are about the middle east. how many of these countries are standing in line to help us ?
      I count none so far. as advanced as we are, we are standing about #35th in the world for healthcare and last in taking care of our own. let’s hope the next president has American citizens’ well being on top of his agenda instead of his own selfishness.

    9. yoyo muffintop on July 24th, 2008 7:35 am

      SD – I 100% agree. Spot on.

      Rusty – The point of the written piece by SM is electing someone with experience in foreign affairs. If one cannot make correct conclusions based off their vast experience why would that experience matter?

      And Obama can’t grow a set…Jesse cut ‘em off :)

    10. BUN on July 24th, 2008 7:57 am

      Yo Yo…so glad you have a sense of humor..I had assumed you were over the top hostile.

    11. katablog on July 24th, 2008 9:20 am

      Yo Yo, You are preaching to the choir about the southern border. But just because my scruples won’t allow me to vote for McCain doesn’t mean I’m idiotic enough to vote for Obama.

      What has Obama done? Lied, Lied, Lied. Thrown people under the bus, lied, thrown more people under the bus, lied, arrogant, stuck on himself, whines when his wife makes speeches and the press actually writes about them.

    12. dennisintn on July 26th, 2008 4:59 pm

      i guess next week we’ll hear about the sniper fire and mortars going off around obama and how he bravely fought his way to victory in first afghanistan and iraq. the “great changes” obama was preaching about must have referred to his changes in what he believes in every time the public raises a voice of dissent. he’s being compared to kennedy and reagan. as a public speaker, he does compare, but kennedy and reagan would have given their lives and fortunes for this country. obama doesn’t even like it. maybe he needs to run for “king of europe”. i admit i liked him the first few times i saw him speak. then he forgot voters have memories and know the difference in what he said yesterday and what he says today. he’s just another copy of chicago politicians. his working for the slumlords certainly doesn’t add to any lustre he might have had.
