Oh, brother. When will it end? Okay I don’t think it’s an unreasonable request, it’s just that Chris Matthews loves setting this trap because it keeps him and other lefties from having to talk about what a miserable job President Obama is doing. Buchanan wants to know why Obama won’t release his grades? And the whole thing just deteriorates from there.
The new normal for unemployment is now 8%. It used to be 5%. The new normal for gas prices, according to Tim Geithner, is now five dollars a gallon. It used to be two dollars. It used to be that W broke the bank when his largest deficit was $600 billion. Today that’s chump change. CEOs at pharmaceutical companies are now punished for not toeing the Obama line. The EPA now runs our oil drilling industry. The economy is in a shambles, and the best Buchanan can do is question whether Obama is the beneficiary of affirmative action.
First the back story. Matthews begins with what else, birtherism. From there the conversation switches to Obama’s hidden educational background. From there the whole thing goes to hell. Well here it is my little mobsters. Even if you didn’t ask for it, here it is.
Okay. I’m not saying it’s not a legitimate subject. If George Bush and John Kerry can compare grades, then why can’t Obama come up with his grades? It’s not unreasonable.
But if we spend a lot of time on this kind of stuff, it’ll be 2012 and we will still be staring at the hole instead of grappling with the doughnut. Am I wrong? Chime in. I do read the comments.
