Oh dear. When incompetence rears its ugly head in one area…. it generally is a cancer that spreads to the rest. So lies the Obama Campaign mired in what seems to be an endless wave of incompetence lately. And now this….
President Barack Obama was scheduled, albeit briefly, to visit North Carolina on Election Day to make an speech in Asheville about the economy.
The White House sent the notice Wednesday last week but reversed course about five hours later, saying the trip wasn’t taking place, according to a North Carolina congressional office notified about the trip. The false alarm isn’t unprecedented — but the fact the White House even considered visiting the state on primary election day is interesting.
A controversial vote on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage and civil unions is on today’s ballot. Obama issued a statement against the amendment earlier this year — but polls show it is likely to win by a solid margin.
The White House did not respond to questions about the scheduling snafu. The alert about the Obama visit came Wednesday last week and was changed by the end of the day. The White House’s official week-ahead schedule released at the end of last week put the president in New York today, not Asheville.
Given the gay marriage conversation that consumed the White House on Monday, a visit to North Carolina on the day of a gay marriage vote would only increase the questions about where the president stands on the issue — questions Gov. Bev Perdue took the brunt of earlier today on an appearance on MSNBC.
Weird this is. After all, if the Obama Regime TRULY believed that North Carolina was in play… I would think he would be in my neighboring state every chance he gets.
I’m afraid that Obama/Biden are going to find out that having it both ways on the gay marriage issue may cost them the election in November. Think 2004 in reverse. I will explain my theory later if no one gets it.
