As I sat there watching the debate last night it struck me that there are things I wish Obama would say that he never says. So I thought it would be interesting to see what we, if given the opportunity, would advise our chosen candidate to say. For me, here is what I wish Obama would've said: Re Palin's qualification to be President: "well, as much as I think McCain is like Bush, Palin is even more like Cheney. She was just found to have abused her power as gov of Alaska and she refused to cooperate with the investigation too, she asked for and received per capita more earmarks for Alaska than any other state, she hired a lobbying firm for the first time as mayor of Wasila and she left that town in debt" Re meeting in Bill Ayers home: "well let's be clear here, I was at that meeting at the invitation of Alice Palmer, a sitting IL State legislature to announce her intention to run for the US Senate. I did not set up the meeting and I did not chose the location" on McCain's repudiation of statements: "well John, you claim that you've repudiated every negative comment made by a Republican against me, yet your own running mate continues to incite the crowds with negative rhetoric and mistatements which only serve to inflame the discourse in this election, so why haven't you repudiated your own running mate?" those are just a few things I wish Obama would say.
