McCain Camp, Obama has No Tough Critics

>> Saturday, August 23, 2008

Well that is not exactly their attack but it is a logical extension of it. In a fund raising E-Mail McCain campaign manager Rick Davis had this to say about the Biden pick.

"Senator Obama's choice in a running-mate once again brings up his questionable judgment when faced with making major decisions," Davis wrote.

"Senator Biden has long been a leading critic of Senator Obama's lack of foreign policy experience. He's criticized Senator Obama for his lack of leadership and judgment on Iraq, Afghanistan and his commitment to meet unconditionally with the leaders of rogue states," he also wrote.

Think about this though, the Obama's toughest critic is on the ticket. This has several implications. One it proves Obama is willing to surround himself with people who disagree with him as he said,

I want somebody who is independent. Somebody who is able to say to me, 'you know what, Mr. President, I think you're wrong on this and here's why' and will give me (applause) who will help me think through major issues and consult with me, would be a key advisor.

The second implication is that Obama's toughest critic is willing to accept a position on the ticket. Biden clearly thinks Obama is up to the task so harsh a critic can he be? If Obama has no harsher critic than someone who thinks he is not very bad then he has no tough critics. He has no tough critics he must be a pretty good choice right? I am sure thats what the McCain camp wanted to say.
