Words come to mind when I read these articles- jerk, arrogant, buffoon- but none really are accurate enough. We are in an age where truth does not matter, experience is a liability, and your presentation is king.
Obama says McCain has done nothing to help with the bailout.
Fox News has Obama’s comments about the bailout:
Asked during an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” whether McCain deserved credit for bringing lawmakers together, Obama said “no.”
“Here are the facts: For two weeks I was on the phone everyday with Secretary Paulson and the congressional leaders making sure that the principles that have been ultimately adopted were incorporated in the bill,” Obama said.
Well praise Barack from whom all blessings flow! Please allow me to get on my knees, kiss my Che shirt, hug my hammer and sickle, and genuflect over my Obama bumper sticker. He has saved the day with his intense phone calling! He must be more amazing on the phone than in person.
So what exactly did John McCain do? Well, at a minimum, he sacrificed his time and showed up. I’m sure there were political calculations which came with that decision. However, McCain didn’t have to prep for the debate like Obama because he had nothing to memorize at the last minute. No cramming needed.
Is there one cogent explanation of Obama’s ideas or what exactly he contributed to this process? Please, just communicating is not substantive- how about an idea? “Helping main street” you say? Give me a break. Was he the ONE who had that idea? I’m sure he’ll take the credit for anything good and blame the bad on the Republicans. More Barry bipartisan.
I love this quote from the article:
Obama also said the next president should work to overhaul the regulatory structure of Wall Street, though he offered no specifics.
How about a pony for every little girl in America? Why don’t we just buy everyone a house, give them “free” health care, “free” public transportation, “free” college, “free” “free” free”!!!
Any specifics about that pony? Uhhh, no, not at this time. Wait until next January and bring a coat.
As time goes on it appears that Obama will be president without facing a single issue with any depth- no more than a reflecting pool. And I bet he loves the reflection.
