While chatting it up with well heeled reporters at aging rockstar Jon Bon Jovi's $30,800 a plate fundraiser for him, Obama the whine machine did some complaining about life on the campaign trail. This is from the NYT's Caucus blog via the Weekly Standard.
“I hope you guys are up for a fight. I hope you guys are game because I
haven’t been putting up with 19 months of airplanes and hotel food and missing
my babies and my wife – I didn’t put up for that stuff just to come in second,”
he said. “I don’t believe in coming in second. The American people can’t afford
for us to come in second.”
Oh poor wittle Obama he's had to go out and talk to all those lowly bitter people in small towns across America instead of just being annointed President saviour for life by the elite. I have some news for you Sen. Obama, America can't afford for you to come in first and us bitter little folks would very much prefer it if you finished last, we don't much like you big city, big government types.
Meanwhile he goes on ABC this morning with George Stephanopoulis to do some more camplaining about being smeared as a muslim and makes a noted freudian slip and George has to correct him. This is via Hot Air and is the full clip not the truncated one being circulated.
I have seen some commenters on left and right sites make this claim but not any repectable blog owners themselves or the McCain campaign which Obama had to admit. He is not now a muslim but technically because of the patriarchal nature of Islam he was born a muslim and is now an apostate and spent years as an agnostic till he found Rev. Wright's so called version of Christianity. He does have many connections with muslims though and some of them are quite disturbing to say the least. Frankly I find his many connections to marxists as disturbing as any allegations he is somehow a closet muslim and wish folks would just drop this line of attack and focus on far more legitimate issues like his socialist tendencies, lack of experience, and weaknesses on foreign and domestic policies.
