    I was reading in HuffPo that Obama was planning on taking a trip to Europe and Israel sometime between now and the PA primaries....Ok I am an Obama supporter but if this is true..I am steamed...I think he should be out in PA right now busting his ass to convince people of PA why he is the better candidate..maybe his advisors think that meet with world leaders may reinforce his Presidential aura, but i think its just a bad move...look what happened in OH , TX and NH

    Plus the Clinton camp have smelled blood following Samantha's Powers name calling and NAFTA-gate(even tho it looks like the Clinton camp had something to do with it too)..they think the OH loss has thrown Obama off his game and they are pressing on with the negativity...calling him Ken Starr and what not....if he thinks winning WY has put his train back on track...and thus means he can travel the world....then I think he is being a bit delusional...until he doesnt win the Dem nomination, he needs to be exploiting every ave to secure it.

    PS..that article was written by uber GOP ass kisser Shailagh Murray, so I am taking it with a grain of salt.

    •  The foreign trips aren't that dumb (1+ / 0-)

      as they would help him shore up his foreign policy image.  But they should be done after the registration deadline.

      •  I agree foreign trips are not bad... (0+ / 0-)

        but seriously...i think he will turn off a lot of people if he is running around the world meeting leaders before he has even secured the Dem nomination...and given that he has kinda been off his game lately...there is no telling the quality level of feces that the Clintons will throw at him and if he can survive it....i mean he has an uphill battle to climb in PA..sure he may get the urban vote and the college educated vote...but right now with the way blue collar folks have been voting...if I were him Id be very worried....he needs to not just win PA but to sweep it, so that we see the end of the Clinton machinations...otherwise even if she still having a 100 delegate gap after PA, she will still insist she should be nominee because she won the big states..and there is no telling the depth of dirty wheeling dealing they may with the superdelegates to win the nomination...i mean look at her now...I have to hand it to her...she is 2nd place now..yet offering the 1st place guy the 2nd spot....i mean wow....thats what I call balls
