Open Mouth, Insert Foot
Barak Obama has created a firestorm with his comment, "You can put lipstick on a pig... it would still be a pig." I'll be the first to say, this is an old saying, and I personally believe that while Obama sought to steal the thunder of the "lipstick" line of Sarah Palin, he was trying to use it to describe the Republican party, not Sarah Palin. That said, while it may have been his intent, it was extremely STUPID on his part. As a man who is seeking the highest office in this land, he should have known this was treading on a slippery slop and left it alone. It shows me, once again, how this man lacks good judgment. Put a teleprompter in front of him and he is articulate and charismatic, but when left on his own, he stutters and stumbles and says some stupid stuff. I've said over and over that I think Barak Obama is nothing more than a puppet. Powerful people have taken over his life, groomed him and funded him to put him on a fast track to the White House. He is a sharp man, but he is not a good leader. Listen America; you need to be asking the question; "Who is behind this man?" The answer to that question is critical, because that is ultimately who we are putting in control of this nation.
