I love this headline. It’s just so great. From Jonathan Martin at Politico:
Obama outraged at being accused of not supporting something he doesn’t support
That just cracks me up! It’s so silly and absurd. Just like Obama is silly and absurd.
Here’s the rest of the story:
Obama, on the trail in New Mexico, had this to say of McCain:
“And today he accused me of not supporting what the Treasury and the Federal Reserve Bank did with AIG despite no evidence whatsoever that that’s what I had said.”
To recap, when I wrote earlier today that Obama supported the bailout, I quickly was instructed by his staff that this was not the case. He just didn’t oppose it, I was told.
Now he’s so adamant about not opposing the Fed’s move that he’s complaining about McCain’s portrayal.
Where, I wonder, is the line between not opposing and, ya know, supporting.
