Krauthammer on Obama’s SECOND Gaffe

Charles Krauthammer reminds us that this isn’t the first time Obama stuck his foot in his mouth on South Carolina soil. But E.J. Dionne views the whole episode through a different (and foggy) lens. I do rather hope Dionne’s party goes to the same optometrist.

Julie,

I agree with your assessment of the respective columns. Dionne may well have his finger on the pulse of the Democratic primary electorate--at least at this stage--but it's hard to image that Obama isn't providing very effective ammunition to a Republican opponent, should he be the Democratic nominee.

As a partisan, I certainly understand hoping that the opposing party will be foolish and irresponsible, since that increases the chances of one's own party winning. But as Americans, shouldn't we be saddened and a little bit scared that a major American political party is foolish and irresponsible? Afterall, what happens if Obama wins? I hope that Hillary wins the Democratic primary. I don't want her to be president, but I suspect that a Hillary presidency would be less of a disaster for America than an Obama presidency.
