This is so annoying to me and most likely to many others as well. But what is most annoying about it to me might not be what you think.
Think about what the Obama campaign is going to be labeled like now. Obama’s options are now: a) he follow McCain to Washington to “sort this economy out” and the media and people on the fence will then look at Obama as a follower who didn’t take the lead on a national crisis, or b) he ignores it, which seems like what he is going to do, and calls McCain out on it, but the media and people on the fence look at Obama as the bad guy not interested in dealing with a national crisis.
The truth of the matter is the Republican party is now doing whatever it takes to get people to side with them. This dirty politics will hopefully rub America the wrong way and Obama will have a lot of momentum in to these final weeks…or it will just be a “McCain’s a hero!” bullshit propaganda situation. I love America, but we are the same people that elected George Bush to a second term after he let the worst attack on American soil happen…and the same people that elected DAVID COOK to American Idol! What a travesty!
But anyway, it seems that Obama’s campaign reacted just as I thought they would by begging the question, “What exactly will John McCain be doing to save the economy at 9PM on a Friday night?”
