McCain would spend hours at the crap table

“You’re always at a disadvantage at craps,” said Mr Bloch. “It’s a problem, if you have a leader who believes they can beat the odds. You don’t want him shooting dice with the economy.” Mr Holden added: “We poker players don’t call poker gambling. It is a game of skill. Craps is an absurd game of luck. You may have thrilling short term wins but only madmen play craps.”

Andy Bloch, one of the world’s leading players who has accumulated $715,000 so far at this year’s World Series, told The Sunday Telegraph: “There are a lot of skills playing poker that would help the chief executive.

“In poker you have to put yourself in the shoes of your opponents, get inside their heads and figure out what they’re thinking; what their actions mean; what they would think your actions mean; and reading people’s bluffs.

“One thing that got us into the Iraq War was that George Bush didn’t realise that Saddam Hussein was basically bluffing, trying to look like a big man, when he really had no weapons of mass destruction.”

and

“Barack Obama, like Lyndon Johnson, used poker to make political connections. He seems not to be much of a bluffer. The Cuban Missile Crisis was a giant bluff by JFK, which was not called by Khruschev. I don’t think we’ll get those kind of geopolitical gambles from Obama.”

POLLS SHOW THAT MANY AMERICANS THINK THAT McCAIN IS LESS OF A RISK THAN OBAMA. I GUESS THAT THEY DO NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLAYING POKER AND SHOOTING CRAPS.
