    Obama interview with Charlie Gibson where he not only comments on the attacks by McCain/Palin but also answers the Ayers question quite nicely. :clap2:

    Poor Sarah.

    That was quite a contrast to poor Sarah's interview with Gibson.

    Sarah just doesn't have the knowledge to answer open questions at the level you would expect a VP to be able to.

    Good post but don't expect the wingnuts to listen, moonies go through heavy indoctrination so thoughts never come to them.



    "The elite, the most powerful, influential, and wealthy individuals among us, have essentially succeeded in creating the most important element in sustaining their perpetual control: eternally loyal, anti-thinking, slave-followers, fundamentally hostile to any kind of meaningful thought, perhaps as much as eighty percent of the world's population. For the purposes of keeping this article short enough for publication, my comments here are limited to Americans."

    The man says nothing better than anyone.

    Question: What would you be doing differently right now than Bush if you were President.

    The original unedited Obama/Gibson interview:

    Obama: It's outrageous we are in this position to begin with.

    Gibson: True but every major media outlet says that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were at least partially if not majorly responsible for the mess and that the Bush Administration and even your opponent John McCain sounded the alarm bells more than two years ago while you remained silent and your Democratic colleagues in the House and Senate actively blocked attempts to reform Fannie and Freddie.

    Obama: But Charlie can we really afford four more years of the Bush/McCain economic policies that got us out of recession in 2000, helped us get through 9/11, the tech stock bubble bursting and had the economy roaring until Democrats took over Congress in 2006?

    Gibson: Well there is certainly blame to go around but would you admit that here was a time where you could have gone against your party, reached acrosss the aisle and joined with John McCain to get meaningful reform of Fannie and Freddie passed?

    Obama: It seems a bit racist to suggest I wouldn't work with an erratic Senator like John McCain.

    Gibson: Isn't it also true that you were the second biggest recepient of Fannie and Freddie donations?

    Obama: These kind of distracting questions are what is wrong with our political process.

    Gibson: OK, onto another subject: William Ayers.

    Obama: Who?

    Gibson: William Ayers, the reformed domestic terrorist who has become a champion of education across America.

    Obama: Oh, you mean that guy in my neighborhood?

    Gibson: Yes.

    Obama: He's got a really cool living room.

    Gibson: I know. I really like the pipe bomb sculpture by the fireplace. Very post modern. Anyway, is it fair that the American people know what the relationship was between you and Ayers when you distributed over 100 million dollars on behalf of Ayers to local Chicago organizations including to Rev. Wright?

    Obama: Rev. Wright is like an uncle to me. I could no more throw him under the bus than I could keep Michelle away from the press and media, locked up at home for the past three months.

    Gibson: Speaking of homes. Let's talk about Rezko.

    Obama: Let's not.

    I couldn't hear the video... Did he say he and Ayers were not friends? Also is this the same interview he takes credit for the bailout? Even though the bailout hasn't done squat yet?
