It would seem that Barack Obama has been taking a lot of Dem’s fears to heart and really hitting back at John McCain lately and not in that "He’s a good friend of mine, but. . ." fashion we’ve seen in the past. No, Barry has finally realized that if the Republicans are going to bring the fight to the gutter then he’s got to put on some galoshes. The high road remains his, but when his opponents go low, he has to take the fight to them. And he’s hitting back hard with some great zingers!
“Yesterday, John McCain actually said that if he’s president that
he’ll take on, and I quote, ‘the old boys network in Washington.’ Now
I’m not making this up. This is somebody who’s been in
Congress for twenty-six years, who put seven of the most powerful
Washington lobbyists in charge of his campaign. And now he tells us
that he’s the one who’s gonna’ to take on the old boys network. The old
boys network? In the McCain campaign that’s called a staff meeting. Come, on!”
Some more choice comment from the trail as of late:
"Sen. McCain bragged about how as chairman of the Commerce Committee in the Senate, he had oversight of every part of the economy. Well, all I can say to Sen. McCain is, ‘Nice job. Nice job.’" [Ed’s note: I think they got that one from us.]
"Where is he getting these lines? The lobbyists running his campaign?"
"I’m not making this up, you can’t make this up. It’s like a ‘Saturday Night Live’ routine."
Keep ’em coming, Barry.
