Barack Obama is arrogant, blah blah blah. He said he's a symbol of America, blah blah blah. He's a celebrity like Britney and Paris, blah blah blah.
This crap drives me bonkers. It's just sloppy half-ass journalism. Take five minutes to check your facts before just printing whatever McCain's attack dogs tell you to print.
Today, Barack Obama apparently said: 'This is the moment . . . that the world is waiting for... I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."
What he really said was this: "It has become increasingly clear in my travel, the campaign -- that the crowds, the enthusiasm, 200,000 people in Berlin, is not about me at all. It's about America. I have just become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."
Big difference when you read the quote in context! It's kind of like when McCain runs ads that say Barack Obama has time to go the gym but not to visit injured troops Oddly enough, the basketball video they're using in the ad is of Barack playing basketball WITH some of our troops. Yep, he really seeems to dislike them.
