BO says any other topic is a “distraction from the economy” then says nothing about the economy. Star-crossed lover Smerconish can’t even ask him what he thinks the problem is and what can be done about it. By default, Obama is left supporting bailout, which certainly hasn’t produced good early returns. Guess what, BO? It’s Bush’s (and Paulson’s) plan. If they were so bad at running the economy in good times, why don’t you have anything different in emergency times?
No matter what happens to the economy, Barack will still be making money. He can’t lose his job or paycheck, his plane, his expensive home, his children’s tuition, and his wife’s shopping sprees. He is totally disconnected from reality.
