Obama’s Folly: Putting Himself First

Email Email Print

John McCain is in D.C. working to bring his own party to a reasonable deal with the Democrats.

Obama is demanding tonight’s debate go forward and is not pushing his party to treat with House Republicans.

Which figure is more likely to be able to bring the base of his party to work with the responsible figures in the other party after November: The one who tried to do so before the election or the one who attempted to turn a national crisis to political advantage? Right now that is John McCain, and the comparison isn’t even close.

Obama’s Chicago roots are showing, as well as his disdain for the consequences of the crisis to the country. Below I posted on the House GOP’s responsibility to act. The best response I have received doesn’t disagree with the urgent need for the package but does ask why House Republicans should put aside politics when Obama, Reid and Pelosi are attempting to manipulate the situation for political advantage. (See, for example, this chronology of the many faces of Harry Reid.) My response to that is that the country will see through the maneuvers and will trust the party and the presidential candidate who show leadership while putting aside politics. Right now that’s John McCain. It remains to be seen who else joins him.
