After the 21st debate of the campaign, Barack Obama has stated he doubts whether he’ll continue debating with Demo-public nominee Hillary Clinton and Bush Dynasty Heir John McCain.
He says, “I’ll be honest with you, we’ve now had 21. It’s not as if we don’t know how to do these things. I could deliver Sen. Clinton’s lines; she could, I’m sure, deliver mine.”
I’m sure the McHillary duo would be thrilled to continue with the debates. They tag-team on the things that Obama accurately calls trivial; Common Washington jabs about unimportant misspeaks, and politicking.
“Last night, we set a new record, because it took us 45 minutes before we even started talking — until we started talking about a single issue that matters to the American people,” he said.
Most political aficionados would say that this was just an excuse for a poor performance in the debate. Poor performance derived from the ruthless line-crossing double team by Hillary and McCain. Poor performance derived from Obama’s two controversial issues on the campaign trail. (Do we need to count Clinton’s? I mean really, they number in the high 20s.)
But isn’t this what the American people REALLY WANT? A politician who pays less attention to the ‘gotcha’s’ of Washington politics and more attention to the issues at hand?
Thank you for honesty, Obama. I hope you do focus on the campaign, and win the nomination so I can cast my vote for the first American President.
