Either that is a very unwise thing to say (the guys on his side of the aisle are going to think he is refering to them), or it is true and the party has a deep rift. Either way, he blew his chances of working with congress if he gets elected because he has managed to alienate people on both sides of the aisle.
Actually this is the same tactic that Bush used: lower the expectations to the point where if she pronounces her name correctly it will be seen as a "win."http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/30/us...in.html?ref=us
1. I have to disagree there. I think it is Nancy Pelosi that alienated people yesterday. It may have passed it she hadn't let go with her vile rant blaming the entire situation on the Republicans. The American people know that is total bull.
2. Barack Obama's people "lowered the expectations" for last Friday night's debate, how is that any different? LOL
The American people seem to be against bailing out Wall Street and against bailing out people that can't pay their mortgages and they leaned hard on their Representatives and for once the Reps listened.
Let me remind those who seem to have forgotten, the Demorats have a majority in Congress, why didn't they
pass the bill? 40% of Democrats
voted against it. One third
of the people in Barney Frank's committee voted against the bill. I heard many of Pelosi's close friends from California voted against the bill.
Yes, this was a Republican Bill, but I believe Republicans are still allowed to vote against Bush's Bill. And why are the Dems siding with Bush on this????
***shock*** ***shock*** ***shock***
Last but not least, isn't this discussion in the wrong thread?
