Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
An open letter: Country first?
Dear John and Barack,
You had a good thing going there for a while. We were all talking about things that mattered, such as health care and the meltdown on Wall Street but apparently it was too good to last. Shall I paraphrase the turn the conversation has taken since yesterday?
McCain: Hi, America. You guys dont seem to like me when we talk about the economy, so Im going to talk about something else: Barack Obama cant be trusted.
Obama: Oh yeah, John? Well, America loves me when we talk about the economy (Keating Five) so Im going to keep talking about the economy (seriously, America, look up the Keating Five). See? I can fight! How do you like me now?
Really, guys? Do we have to do this? John, this reeks of desperation. Your timing, as usual, sucks. Barack, if you take the bait and descend into the mud with John and Sarah, you will look like a tool.
In short, boys, get your damn acts together. Preferably before 9 p.m. this evening.
