What Must Working for this Man Be Like?
Jed wonders how McCain can ride the economic crisis from “the economy is fundamentally strong” to “stop the campaign” in a mere ten days?
I’ll tell you how: “Quick boys, I need a way deflect attention away from the fact that my campaign manager is a lobbyist whose firm was on the payroll of Freddie Mac to the tune of $15,000 a month until August!”
Obama is speaking now, making the point that (a) he’s been on top of this situation since the start, in other words — he’s been able to multitask, as a president must; and (b) he reached out to McCain this morning to issue a joint statement, and that McCain had agreed.
Obama is also taking questions at the press conference, and says that we need the debates, and that this is exactly the time the American people need to hear from the person who will be responsible for this mess.
Obama also channels barath, who says that presidents need to be able to handle more than one thing at once.
