Lamest political spin of the night from the Obama camp (Biden especially). The Dems tried to claim all the experience John McCain was “just the past”. In fact, a lot of the commentary was a joke. The talking heads at CNN were especially lame. Â But O’Reilly was showing off his double digit IQ when he ranted to Karl Rove it was not enought to have written news reports about the financial crisis – because O’Reilly doesn’t read the news! Â He has to be told. Â It was embarrassing. And Hannity is just sounding incoherent. He repeats ad nauseumÂ his little sound bites as if they carry and meaning. When you speak in sound bite, you speak in strange tongues (that goes for left and right).
I have to say America is so fed up with the Political Industrial Complex the hold (and tiresome) hands with their endless pre-debate quips and post debate quips are pathetic. Â America to the talking heads – we can interpret what happened just fine, thanks.
As I said below Obama was rattled, angry, defensive and many times rude. His zingers looked like arrows made out of limp noodles, they just died before the got half way to McCain. He was very much the “me too” candidate, from “John McCain is right, …” to the just horrible “I have a bracelet too (let me read it here a second)”.
Look, when you are trying to turn “Experience” into “The Past” you are losing. Is “Experience” to be ridiculed when you go to get major surgery? Or are you willing to let someone experiment on your body a little? If you want experience when someone tries to excise a cancer from your body, why not when someone is trying to excise one from your country?Â
Obama has nothing but gaffes coming out of this as memories. McCain came out looking like an old salty scrapper.
