Obama's lack of curiosity is becoming a liability
Obama Ad Hits McCain for Being Computer Illiterate
Barack Obama steps in it~~again! Barack Hussein Obama II certainly is demonstrating his superior lack of judgement for all to see. Do we want someone who is commander-in-chief to look at “facts” and make judgements with no background knowledge, or has no curiosity as to why? It appears his lack of curiousity is also highlighting a severe lack of his management capabilities. If he was curious, he would have asked why John Mc Cain doesn’t use email before spent peoples hard earned money running it!
As the Boston Globe notes 0n March 4, 2000:
“McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain’s encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He’s an avid fan - Ted Williams is his hero - but he can’t raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.”
To make matters worse, it happens that John does use the internet, and certainly understands the importance of it, according to this interview in the NY Times (link) on July 13,2008.
While this certainly once again highlights Senator Obama’s poor judgement and analytical skills, it also highlights something much more important. It highlights how lacking Senator Barack Obama is in life experience in his management skills, of which one of the most important aspects will be his time management skills and judgement.
Senator Mc Cain has proven leadership experience in the US Navy where he had to manage and delegate responsibilities. Senator Mc Cain has also expressed in interviews that he prefers to talk to people over written communication. Anyone involved in management today can tell you the many problems that are encountered in dealing with issues via e-mail, because of how often they are misinterpreted. In fact, the standard managerial advice is NOT to email people about important issues, as they lack intonation, facial expression and the run the risk of being misinterpreted.
Again, we really don’t expect Senator Obama to understand this because of his inexperience in management, but every time we forget he reminds us once again when it comes to executive matters- he does not even grasp the position he is seeking.
