Report From Behind The Scenes Of Both Campaigns

This an interesting take from behind the scenes by CBS reporter, Dean Reynolds, who has been following Obama for most of the time but has now switched over to following McCain around. What he finds is a McCain team that is far better organized and accomodating to the press while the Obama team is unfriendly, unhelpful, very unorganized and the plane literally stinks. The whole report is quotable so I won't cut any snips from it and just send you over there to read it for yourself. I think it says a lot about how the two candidates would run their respective administrations should they be elected.

I am not really surprised because as a military man McCain is known for running a tight clean ship and Obama admitted in an early primary debate that one of his faults is disorganization. McCain also has always enjoyed a friendly banter with the press and voters on the trail while Obama maintains an aloof better than that persona as if he doesn't need to take questions like he and he alone knows better.

Another thing I think is telling about this is that a McCain administration would be open and transparent. Obama though as evidenced by his multiple attempts to obscure or cover up his radical past associations would be a very closed and secretive administration. I have not written about the birth certificate/citizenship scandal because I didn't find it compelling and so many others have. Though the recent court case brought in Berg vs Obama brings something to light about it. Obama dispatched lawyers to get it dismissed instead of just releasing the needed documents that would clear it all up in minutes. Why won't he just release the documents? Just like he is now lying about his connections to Ayers and ACORN not to mention his millions in questionable donations, this all stinks like a rotten onion. As always the cover up is always worse than the truth.

I have yet to see published an ORIGINAL hospital Certificate of Live Birth, issued at the time of his birth, for the Manchurian Candidate.Why not? What does it say? Why would it remain confidential? There is something being hidden here. It may be something significant, like place of birth, or something insignificant like--well anything. Makes you wonder-- just like Sen. John F. Kerry, D.-Hanoi not releasing his military records -- DD214 or discharge papers...

I find the birth certificate situation fairly fascinatng from two standpoints: first was the question itself - why put apparently forged documents out there? as you say - it's the cover up that causes problems! Then I got interested in the questions raised by the possibility that he is in fact not eligible...what happens? why hasn't he been vetted? whose job _is_ it to make sure someone is eligible? what happens if he's declared ineligible before the election? what happens if he's elected and _then_ declared ineligible? All that kind of thing - I just never had any reason to consider before...
Oh yeah...and why doesn't any citizen have "standing" in a court of law to demand proof that a candidate for president is actually eligible to become president? So...lots of questions raised besides the actual one about his eligibility. And lots of interesting stuff coming out about that as well.
