I heard this story on the news yesterday while on my way to work and busted out laughiing.
I agree it is heavily dosed in the spirit of partisan politics.
However..it also became obvious to me that after Obama made his famous "Above my pay grade " statement that his party had to do damage control. This
is a prime example of desperation.
Obama was asked a question on a topic which for years and years, election after election ,was a litmus test for any office in the land..even for the
office of dog catcher...what are ones views on abortion...and abortion related topics.
Now in damage control...this political party must do likewise in desperation but instead asking a question about private arrangements and then
bringing this into the public arena..and then manufacturing it as a political issue..as if how many houses one has or owns qualifys one or disqualifys
one for the office of President.
This is clearly a manufactured event...verses the abortion and abortion related issues...which was for so long used by the democratic partyto control
who got into what public office by being a litmust test for these positioins.
It clearly shows to me the desperation of this body politic in that it cannot withstand what it has been dishing out for years and years..election
How many houses one owns is a private issue...private buisness. Abortion for years and years has been a public platform for every office in the
There is a big difference here in motives and methods when one remembers and knows the history of past elections and the issues.
How many houses one owns was not an issue...abortion was and continues to be an issue.
Among thoses of us who know this history it shows very poor tack and preparation in this political party attempting to play through on such a default
setting. It also hints at vieled entitlement thinking/beliefs.
This tack clearly shows desperation and damage control. It also clearly shows how deep the media is in bed with the political partys. THere is no
difference in the political partys and he media ..they are one and the same.
This is one reason much of the public is catching on..to the two party system..and the media too.....slowly but they are catching on in
