    Obama 4 years ago as quoted tonight by Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes:

    "The reason we've not met our challenges is a failure of leadership, the smallness of our politics, the ease with which we're distracted by the petty and the trivial, our chronic avoidance of tough decisions, our preference for scoring cheap political points instead of rolling up our sleeves and building a working consensus to take on big problems."

    Kroft added, "And those were eloquent words and true words. Unfortunately, they're still largely true today. Did you overpromise? Did you underestimate how difficult this was gonna be?"


    How funny is that?

    Of course Obama didn't get how his words from back then condemn his behaviors now. He just droned on about how he hadn't had time yet to fix the problems.

    It was an annoying interview all-and-all. But hearing that quote was a high point. There is one good thing about Obama getting all these casual interviews where he's hardly ever put on the spot and he can just go on blissfully talking about whatever he wants to - he's getting out of condition.

    Our candidates are being tempered in the fires of our primary debates. But Obama is getting soft.

    He won't get to ramble on and make up crap without being called on it in the debates.

    I so look forward to them, no matter who our nominee turns out to be.

    When Pubs see how no compromise obstruction in a world crisis THEY started is rewarded in 2012, maybe they'll start being good citizens again...

    Soft? Oh lord, that is freaking funny. He has held up pretty well under pressures that would have killed McCain by now and Palen would have just quit.

    Obama is going to be in deep trouble when he has to start limiting his answers to 1 minute.

    I wonder if he will be able to contain his annoyance when the red light comes on.



    Of course, there is always a possibility that moderators won't have the guts to hold him to the time limits.


    But whatever. Our nominee will be ready to puncture his hot air balloons with facts in 30 seconds or less.

    How the fuck do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you claim the GOP started a world economic crisis.

    Sounds strangely similar to what Obama and congress has been doing this whole time.
