Posted on 09/25/2008 5:06:17 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
It looks like the Democrats are shocked by a nominee who actually takes the initiative to show some leadership in the economic bailout bill as evidenced by the reaction of Democrat activist and CNN political contributor Donna Brazile. Appearing on a panel yesterday hosted by Campbell Brown which also included Gloria Borger and Tony Blankley, one could almost hear the song, "Don't Worry, Be Happy," in the background as Brazile assured us over and over that "progress" on the bailout was being made so there was no need for the nominees to appear in Washington except to passively cast a vote. Here is a transcript of the proceedings (emphasis mine):

If you want on my PJ’s NewsBusters Ping List, let me know.
Either mccain or obama are going to be in the White House, living with the results of this. It only seems right that they should be involved.
Donna and other democrat bastards are simply acknowledging that they do not have a leader at the top of their ticket. We Republicans do and want our leader there to make sure the democrats don’t make their financial mess even worse. They are the party of the stupid afterall...
Donna Brazile=Racist Useful Idiot
Brazile says neither candidate should get involved in the bailout bill because she knows McCain would have something good to offer and Obama wouldn’t.
Some times you feel like a nut, some times you don’t. Donna Brazille is a nut.
With her guy in the losing position on this issue, it’s nice to have Donna continue the digging.
From Hannity’s forums,
“Call me if you need me”. Obama says its the biggest crisis since the Depression, and he cant even be bothered showing up to vote PRESENT.
The thing that chaps my @ss is that ZerObama says we need a president who can do more than one thing at time...while demonstrating through his actions that he is only doing ONE thing at a t time...campaigning. (At least until Bush called his bluff.) But what chaps me is that the media doesn’t call him on it.
Both are senators. I think McCain made the right choice. Obama sounded annoyed and arrogant yesterday during his press conference.
Obama can’t risk taking a leadership role on this issue becuase he has too many hidden skeletons in his closet. Can’t have them spill out in the open when accusations on who is responsible for what start flying around.
NObama said...."If you need me........call me"
Real leadership there, Barry.
Leadership is running from crisis. "The better to keep one's hands clean, dearie," followed by the wicked witch's evil laugh.
You should have used all caps!
He kept looking the right and then the left, never looking straight ahead. I was getting nauseous, but I wasn't sure if it was motion sickness caused by his flailing head, or if it was what he said.
I didn’t see the broadcast but listened to it on talk radio but his tone of voice didn’t impress me.
I saw it. I agree with your assessment. His body language suggested he was very annoyed.
So now CNN is a 527 group. It just lost it’s status as a news outlet
I really think the Dems are worried about the American people finding out what really happened. The Dems fingerprints are all over this mess and they don’t want the American people to pay attention.
McCain showed some true leadership by stepping up. I also think he is going to expose the Rats during this fiasco. This will be front and center until the end of this election.
Donna’s mind has always been a vast waste land.
That’s what I was thinking. If she’s against the candidates going to Washington and “showing leadership” on the issue,
you know that such action would be helpful to McCain / harmful to 0bama.
Since Donna Brazile is annoyed, that means McCain did the right thing.
These a-holes Bawney Fwank and Christoher DuDD Dodd are so full of themselves bragging they have votes to pass this....well dohhhh, way to go you useless idiots. Way to conjure up votes to cover your azzes.
Bush needs to use the Reagan Bully Pulpit and blame the Dems for this absolute catastrophy. No Kodak moments either today, sign this in private and get on with your work.
I don’t know about the rest of you folks but I’m going into cash with my money today...
“Both are senators.”
I think that is far more important than that they are candidates. They were elected to represent their constituents, and that is still their job. If they can’t put their personal ambitions on hold for a couple days to do the job they were elected to do, how can we look to them to lead in a higher office?
They both should be there because they are being paid by the taxpayers to be the Senator of their states, AZ & IL!
That is what John McCain should have said. “I am running for president but I am still a senator from AZ representing my constituents and I am going to do that!”
I still think these people who run for another office should have to resign their positions so their constituents are being represented full time!
‘Obama cant risk taking a leadership role on this issue becuase he has too many hidden skeletons in his closet’ - all of whom are dims.
‘still think these people who run for another office should have to resign their positions so their constituents are being represented full time!’ - or at least give up the salary they are not earning.
After the deal is made on this bailout thing. McCain should make a big grandstand play like this:
He should call on all elected representatives who have received money from the guilty companies and organizations to return that money. If the source of the contribution is no longer in existence, then they should give the money to the U. S. Treasury instead.
Then he should lead the way by giving his $26,000, or whatever, to the U. S. Treasury, and call on voters and other citizens to demand their pres follow suit.
0 would soil his panties and squeal like a stuck pig. (So would Dodd.)
I agree with you. Sen. McCain made the right decision and as always, the Democrats look petty and partisan.
Donna Brazile: No Need for Nominees to Show Leadership on Bailout Bill.
Yes IGNORE the fact that both nominess are actually paid US Senators (Lawmakers)
Yes Why worry that the nominess would not show leadership in the single most important issue facing the Nation 30 days prior to the election.
Spoken like a true partisan that understands her candidate lacks the experience and knowledge to deal with the issue and is seeking cover for him.........
Today "no problemo us 'rats can handle it without any help".
(The thing that chaps my @ss is that ZerObama says we need a president who can do more than one thing at time...while demonstrating through his actions that he is only doing ONE thing at a t time...campaigning. (At least until Bush called his bluff.) But what chaps me is that the media doesnt call him on it.)
Why would the Media not calling their candidate on an issue bother you? Have they called him on any other issue? No. So get used to it and deal with it. Adapt Improvise and Overcome..........
It is ironic that the party that gave us this mess seems poised to benefit most from it.
Is there anyone that really cares what this woman says?
Well, that's why they make the mess, isn't?
I agree wholeheartedly, nobama and ALL the dims all have the “bank heist” dye all over them. Nobama must figure that if sticks his head in the sand, somehow eveyone will think he is innocent.
Hopefully McCain will make a big issue of the dims vote in 2004 per Fanny/Freddie changes so more Americans will see this scam for what it really is. For certain the MSM is doing their best to hide it.
I didn’t see or hear anything Obama last night. Went on with my life-went to choir practice-then out with these friends to Granite City-had their beer sampler-Duke accckkk!!-came home went to bed. My outlook this a.m. is probably better for it.
Maybe not. Word today is it’s a done deal. If McCain rushes back to DC just in time have them announce that, he will look like a fool. He’s being played.
yes exactly we need no leadership, just a telepromter and words like "hope" and "change".
As in I "hope" we have alittle bit of "change" left after Congress buggers all us taxpayers for 700 billion.
Exactly how does a fat, racist female version of Al Sharpton become “...a political contributor??” If she wasn’t a politically correct skin color she’d be taking out the trash at McDonalds!
You would think that if he showed up in Washington that he could raise our economy from the dead. I guess he just doesn't feel like it today.
Leave it to the Dihms to call the game 'over' before the players on one side get to the field.
Did you post the Bob Schieffer / McCain story yet ?
Well at least she didn’t say that Jesus wouldn’t have gone to D.C.
He’s fundraising because his decision to renege on his promise to take federal funding has left him short of cash.
You’re right-your outlook is probably better than mine. Maybe I’ll try your approach.
