"I've got to own up to my mistake which is that ultimately it's important for this administration to send a message that there aren't two sets of rules. You know, one for prominent people and one for ordinary folks who have to pay their taxes." (Cited Here. Video not yet available.)
Thus, President Obama washes his hands and stills the raging waters once again. Like Jesus, he arises, speaks a few calm words and stills the storm. And his disciples were sore amazed saying among themselves "Who is this man that even journalists and lobbyists obey him?" One of the best article titles on the latest Obama debacle comes from AP writer Calvin Woodward "Obama comes under sharp criticism from himself" ?! If you're not smiling you should be. That one was hilarious. Read the article, it's even funnier. Disciple Woodward manages to turn the whole thing into a victory for Obama who ends up being so much different than that Bush guy who could not criticize himself.
Ordinary Americans should be shrugging their shoulders as this proves even more that Obama is nothing more than Clinton 2.0: more charming, quick witted, and socially interactive. For those of you that don't know, web 2.0 refers to things like Facebook and Delicious that allow the user to "personalize." They are "dynamic" environments where things "change" constantly. Sound familiar? It should. Obama "changes" much faster and far more dynamically than Clinton ever did. He is even more adept at "personalizing" the average American's pain right? I mean the price of arugula has skyrocketed causing us to cling to our boom sticks and sky spirit...
But any honest American would have asked President Obama the questions Williams, Couric, and the rest of America's Truth Squad somehow missed, "If there aren't two sets of rules for prominent people then why does Geithner get to stay?" "Why does Eric Holder, who pardoned a prominent rich man because another prominent rich man received a payoff from the first rich man's wife, get to stay?" Two sets of rules anyone? As one famous ordinary American would say, "D'oh!"
