Another Barack Obama earmark turns up in the news. For a candidate who has made earmark reform an obsession, John McCain hasn’t done much to point out some of Obama’s more embarassing and egregious earmarks. They do seem to be a powerful example of Old Politics.
An articulate minority woman who can explain why capitalism works and is passionate about freedom. But alas, she was not born in the U.S. and therefore can’t make the VP list.
Michelle Obama buying $600 earings? (Sounds like something Nancy Reagan would have gotten bashed for.) Surprised she didn’t put it toward ritzy summer camps. Hey, the lady’s rich, and she should spend her money any way she wants. (But spare us the whining.)
I don’t understand the purpose of Obama publicly insulting Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Maybe it’s part of his effort to demonstrate he won’t be a shoot-from-the hip cowboy who damages our international relationships.
