HEY CHRIS MATTHEWS STOP PLAYING SOFT BALL WITH PAT BUCHANAN

...........................................................

JOHN F KENNEDY on EXPERIENCE and the Presidency.

As I watched MSNBC's Chris Matthews'
Hardball tonight, I heard Pat Buchanan say how Hillary Clinton showed "experience" with her comments regarding the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. And furthermore, that it was so important today on the campaign trail . This was Pat Buchanan's line mostly, but, even Matthews was on the same line.

Pat Buchanan said Wednesday (December 26) on Hardball, that his Republican party was
counting on Hillary to bring his party together. I noticed last night how he repeated the same mudslinging done by the Hillary camp of Barack Obama. Buchanan wants Hillary to win the nomination because he believes that his Republican party has a better chance to win against her. He feels Hillary will bring together his splintered party. And tonight, Buchanan kept up his pushing of Hillary ~ like he's part of her team. It is obvious ~ at least to me ~ that he is a Hillary pusher because he sees Hillary as a Republican galvanizing object. He feels Hillary will stimulate his uninspired Republican base. And Chris Matthews lets him get away with it. And I like Chris, but he is not playing Hardball with Buchanan.

It is no secret ~ I am a supporter of

When a Hardball edited version of Barack Obama's comment on Bhutto's assassination was aired on Hardball and Matthews put Obama down about it, I was curious about what I didn't see. So thanks to Tommy, age 40 who lives in Munich, Germany (although from Oslo, Norway), I found the video of what Barack said today and watched his body language.

I love it when I see people outside the USA so interested in our Presidential race that they take the time to obtain these videos and upload them.

Senator Barack Obama talks about the assassination of Benazir Bhutto while campaigning in Des Moines, Iowa.

And since, Chris Matthews was negative about Barack's words, I listened to the British Prime Minister Gordon Brown express his thoughts over Bhutto's assassination.

Compare the two. What do you think?

Furthermore, Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan made it sound like "experience" meant "knowing" Benazir Bhutto gave
certain candidates an edge. I don't see that. I think they would maybe have had an edge "knowing" her and meeting her, if she was alive. But "assassination" disgustingly takes life. "Knowing her" now will have nothing to do with working with Pakistan through that "experience" of knowing Mrs. Bhutto. I heard these commentators tell me that now that Benazir Bhutto is dead, that the people who spoke to her were more viable candidates to be President. How does that work? They spoke to her, they knew her, they respected her. But now, sorrowfully, she is dead.

Sometimes, these commentators just get in the way of rational thought. Sometimes, they should stop talking long enough to think.

And Buchanan needs to stop plugging Hillary and putting down Barack. He's only doing it for his "hidden" agenda.

notaveragejoe made this video in favor of Barack Obama, concerning his EXPERIENCE versus that of Hillary Clinton and John Edwards. OBAMA '08!

I think we are fickle in this country. And I think we have the collective attention span of a two year old way too many times. When Barack Obama speaks, the world is already listening. I have pointed out before that people of other countries are posting positive and Presidential hopeful videos and accompanying comments on Youtube and Dailymotion. I don't know if other candidates are getting this universal support ~ but I would be surprised if they were. No other candidate transcends the same old tired Washington, D.C. "politics as usual" mentality like Senator Obama. Here you have an article: Obama travels to Africa for a 5-nation tour

And the reaction on this 5-nation tour was really, really good. And this is a good thing. "Experience" is fine. But some of our best leaders are natural born leaders ~ and I believe Barack Obama is one of those.

Obama in Africa TME article on Obama in Africa


And this thing about "rolling the dice" with Barack Obama ~ here's what I have to say about that: There isn't one candidate that we wouldn't be rolling the dice with. None on them have been in the unique position of President of the United States of America. And being the spouse of a President whom you weren't talking to because he was doing the hanky panky in the Oval Office for some of that time doesn't give you a leg up on experience.
