The Story of Obama and The Plumber

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFC9jv9jfoA


it must be a case of selective memory, but I cannot recall the last time I saw someone at that level of politics explaining their policy in such depth and with such a grasp of the detail of their intentions.


Im ok if obama turns out to be the anti-christ, the sheer relief of not having a moron as president will more than make up to it.

I dont mind evil, but stupidity embarrasses me.

Thanks for that.  Excellent. 

I suspect we'll hear something similar on tonight's (10/15/2008) debate.

Obama may be the smartest guy in Washington, based on what I saw there.  I think he's got a better handle on things than Paulson and Bernanke can hope to have.  Certainly he knows how to sell it better.

Saw Paulson on the Today Show this morning, and I honestly don't think he's the right one to lead us through this crisis.  All he seems to understand is the stock market, not the economy as a whole.

I hope Obama picks better people to work in his government.

What depth? What he described there was the napkin point details that even I, as a disinterested Canadian, knew. Further, he even slipped in a pretty egregious error in referring to "revenue" when he meant earnings.

Remarkable that he took the time and effort to talk to who was possibly a hostile voter (presuming they weren't actually a plant, though of course the Democratic Party doesn't do that), and that really was worthy of commendation. The fact that he knew the trivial details of his pivotal plan? Not so much.

Nitpicking, are we?

- Revenue is gross amount received before any deductions.
- Earnings is Revenue less expenses.

Honestly, in the context of that video, did it really matter which term Obama used?  I'd say his answer was comprehensive and detailed and demonstrated that he's given a lot of thought to this issue and has a plan.  Contrast that with his addled opponent.

PS - and if you had spent the past year traveling the country, several plane trips a day, rallies, speeches, god knows what, on little sleep, might you not use the correct word in every situation?

Speaking of which, Palin referred to New Hampshire as the northwest today.

he looked a man in the eye and told him "i will raise your taxes so that america can prosper". that's straight talk.

mccain otoh is telling everyone they can have their cake and eat it too. "hey everyone, here have some free money. don't worry, we can print more"

+1 Arg.  Good point.  And he even said it in a way that had Joe Plumber agreeing with him.
