Obama/McCain at Saddleback with Rick Warren’s … Did Obama Actually Almost Say Clarence Thomas “Was not Experienced Enough”?
Why is Barack Obama above being called an inexperienced political neophyte not ready for prime time, yet he is allowed to think and basically almost say in a public forum that others did not deserve appointments or nominations due to their lack of experience?
One thing that was brought front and center at Rick Warren’s Presidential debate from Saddleback Church is the fact that John McCain and Barack Obama’s view on the world and issues are as different as night and day. The debate style of the forum showed just how different the two candidates actually are. In the end McCain smoked Obama. The Leftwing blogosphere had to be extremely disappointed as Obama got crushed.
However, if you missed it last night because you might have been watching the Beijing Olympics and Michael Phelps making all Americans proud … Barack Obama almost made the political gaffe of the century. Obama was asked which existing Supreme Court Justice would he not have nominated. Barack Obama almost said that he could not have nominated Clarence Thomas because he was not experienced enough.
As Hot Air points out, Watch him catch himself mid-sentence, the first fateful syllable of the word “experience” already out of his mouth, before he stops short and switches gears by basically calling Thomas a moron instead (at least, “at the time”)
As Mark My Words stated, there is no doubt that Obama’s true intent and what he meant to say was that “Barack Obama clearly meant he would not have nominated Clarence Thomas because Thomas was not experienced enough.”
WATCH THE OBAMA GAFFE FOR YOURSELF
