Obama: Gaffing His Way to the White House
Posted by Ryan on May 27, 2008
The blogosphere is buzzing with news and facts about Barack Obama’s own statements that would have destroyed any Republican or She Who Must Not Be Named.
Malkin’s got great coverage of the most recent one: that Barry’s uncle was one of the first on the scene to liberate Auschwitz. I knew Obama had communist tendencies, but if his uncle really was in that first wave into Auschwitz, Poland, back in World War II, he would have been a Soviet! Perhaps Obama was ducking sniper fire while giving that statement.
Quayle couldn’t spell potato and was crucified, Dubya’s misunderestimated the OBGYN’s love for their patients became a constant gaffe theme, but Obama’s the second coming. Similar little gaffes would have destroyed other candidates or permanently altered how we think about them.
I think this will be one of those growing stories from behind the scenes that everyone will be talking about, which will finally get the MSM to report it in a few weeks or months.
