Really, How Stupid is Obama?

Up until this point, I haven't really have a point of contention with Obama. I mean, sure, he's young, idealistic and has ZERO leadership experience, but I can see were some people could get their panties all wet for him. But I didn't really think he was stupid...

I was wrong. Apparently it's OK for his volunteer staff to hang pictures of communist mass murdering fascists in their campaign headquarters:

Updated: Obama responds

"The office featured in this video is funded by volunteers of the Barack Obama Campaign and is not an official headquarters for his campaign."

Yeah – that’s it, in it’s entirety.

What was I saying above about leadership? Yeah, he has no experience with it. This problem is simple.

I’m a rational person – I understand that you can’t control everything and you can’t control everything your campaign supporters do. But when something like this goes down, then it becomes an opportunity to prove to the people that you have a set. Condemn the flag. Reprimand the volunteers. Put out an edict to all campaign offices that no foreign flags and certainly no flags of mass murdering communists are to be displayed. Period. This resolves the issue forthwith and demonstrates leadership. But that’s not what he did. For all he did do, he might as well pin a Guevara button on his lapel.
