Do you suppose that Barack Obama read my recent rant about Wednesdays televised Democratic debate on ABC? How sick and tired I am of the political bashing and the act of ‘throwing someone under the bus to get a vote’ strategy that seems to be the norm lately?
I don’t know, but a day after the debate, Senator Barack Obama made the implication that perhaps he too, is getting weary of these debates. Obama went as far as suggesting that he doesn’t even see the point in having another debate with Senator Hillary Clinton.
“I’ll be honest with you,” Senator Obama stated to the press, “we now have had twenty-one (debates). I could deliver Senator Clinton’s lines…she could I’m sure deliver mine.”
Then making a specific reference to the Democratic debate held two nights ago, Senator Obama made the admission that “it took 45 minutes before we even started talking about a single issue that matters to the American people.” This is a true fact because Senator Clinton was on her soapbox acting self-rightous about Barack Obama’s former spiritual leader, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
I think that the American public will agree with Barack Obama. We are tired of the pettiness and mud-throwing. If there is to be a debate, it should be about what the candidates can accomplish if elected to the highest office in the country.
Not about what church they should or should not belong to.
Or whether they were the target of sniper fire in Bosnia.
