McCain's old; Obama's excuse?

Isn't Obama a graduate of Harvard Law?

Today on CBS's Face the Nation, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in Afghanistan, told the paparazzi-pursued correspondent Lara Logan that "the objective of this trip was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to 10 years." (Source.)

OK, quick -- what's the major problem in that statement? (OK, my boldface kinda gives it away.)

Take a look.

It's really amazing how people are falling all over this idiot ...

Hube:
MSM is making hay about McCain's age 247's. I checked and found out there are like 23-24 senators older than McCain and about 25-30 others are less than 5 years youngermaking them 66 or older!

That means the Senate is full of old farts and McCain is just one of them.

I was surprised to see Diane Feinstein is 75 years old ; I thought she was only 70 or so.Heh.

Hube, I'm afraid you're the idiot here, as you assume something about the two year extension that Obama tacked on to his eight, which may not at all be what he had in mind. Your clue is "8-10"; he did not say 8-12, now did he? You are so quick to pounce on this man, beyond intellectual boundaries, so typical of persons with partisan obsessions no matter how bright they are.

Ah Perry. Must've skipped your Geritol this morning, you pathetic fossilized hypocrite.

If Obama can only serve EIGHT years, Perry, why did he even bother to say "TEN"? This man graduated from Harvard Law. It doesn't MATTER "what he had in mind." Your devotion to this empty suit is what is "beyond intellectual boundaries." As small as yours are, that is.

Yes -- I am quick to pounce on this man. B/c the MSM doesn't do it. They're too busy making hay out of McCain saying "Czechoslovakia."

If this had been said by Bush or McCain, it would be trumpeted by liberals that the speaker did not intend to leave office after the constitutionally mandated time -- in other words, proof of plans for the cancellation of elections and the overthrow of our constitutional form of government. It would be a sign of the end of America as we know it and the planned creation of a fascist regime! Keith Olbermann would froth at the mouth while devoting an entire show to declaring the individual THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD!

On the other hand, when Barack says it, we simply call it evidence of his ignorance/vacuousness and are therefore accused of excessive partisanship and being insufficiently intellectual.

He'll probably have to stick around longer because of those 7 extra states!
