Blair House Shoot Out!

I missed the first part of the great summit today and started watching just as McCain leveled a blast at the special deals carved out to gain support for this monstrosity, the "Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, and others" and the complete lack of transparency in the process. Obama came back with---"the election is over" we are hear not to talk about that but to see how we can go forward. Barack Obama accused McCain of being in election mode when he, himself has never stopped campaigning since he took office. I would contend we can go forward by trashing this 2000+ page of crap filled with special interest carve outs and began from scratch---that's the way to go forward Mr Obama and you know it!

At one point Mr. Obama was reminded by one of the Republicans at the summit that the Democrats had been speaking for about 50 minutes when his side had only had the floor for about only 25 minutes. The president responded that was because he ran overtime, and again reminded us that he was the president. I suppose he feels that gives him the right to break the rules set before the meeting ---Yep, Barack you are above the fray although you sided with the Democrats on every issue and were certainly not a neutral arbitrator as you would have liked the audience to believe. One thing for sure Mr. President, for every minute you run your mouth that's a minute less you have left in office. You sir are an arrogant jerk!
