Obama’s Playing Politics

Barack Obama, forced into participating in the ‘bailout’ talks in Washington when, in his own words, he would have preferred to have been elsewhere unless contacted by ‘phone, continues to play party politics by blaming Republicans for scuppering the bailout deal. Let’s not forget, he did not feel the issue was significant enough to want to involve himself actively in any decision-making. No doubt, Obama wanted to avoid having to make a clear decision on such a contentious issue; why spoil his reputation for being a fence-sitter?

By comparison, John McCain took action rather than carrying on with his political campaign as if nothing was happening. He has taken a risk in suspending his efforts to be President but, in doing so, he has demonstrated again to the American people, the American taxpayers, that he will put their interests first ahead of Wall Street “Greed is Good” companies, ahead of Washington politics, and ahead of his own interests.

The American people will remember this come 4th November. If they want a man of action, they will vote for John McCain.

  2. Thomas Jefferson Says:

    Hard to get much better perspective than Thomas Jefferson’s letter to Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin in 1802:

    “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
