Me? I'm just following the lead of the Democrats who ridiculed Bush for being at the ranch instead of the White House, as if there were no computers, communication or any way to be involved with the running of the country if he were not physically there.
It seems stranger in this case when were are talking about (according to him) the possible destruction of the country, the largest spending package in history, the largest tax cut in history, things that will affect the country for years to come...and there is Pelosi, Reid and Congress working on it constantly, discussing it, debating it, working to get it ready....and Obama is out, holding people's hands and telling them it will be all right.
Perhaps he doesn't need to be in Washington at all. Pelosi and Reid can run the country and he can play good-will ambassador, touring the country and spreading good will. I have little doubt THEY feel they are running the show.
Yes, moonbeam, I can see your point about having a President who will get out among the people and be accessible.....but, right now, at a time that is supposed to be so very crucial to the future of the country, I'd rather see him in Washington, sleeves rolled up, working his butt off to make sure things get done right. If they can do it without him, what does that say?
It's almost as if Pelosi told him to go out and spread good cheer while the adults do the actual work.
