Gems from Meghan McCain

Posted in President Obama,U.S. by Ryan on the March 24th, 2009

Larry King recently interviewed Meghan McCain, who has been in the press recently.  Inspired by this post at all-encompassingly.com, I’ve pulled a few gems out to share.

On whether Obama is becoming overexposed with too much media attention?

Meghan McCain: I think he is on the verge of it. I do think you have to be careful. But it is a different generation. [My] generation … we like our celebrities. And I think that he realizes that because he is very much a Generation Y president. However, he is on the risk of alienating his older followers.

On social issues:

Meghan McCain: I believe in gay marriage. … I personally am pro-life, but I’m not going to judge someone that’s pro-choice. It is not my place to judge other people and what they do with their body.

Maybe a fuller explanation would indicate I’m wrong with my assumption about her position, but isn’t being pro-life mean that you do judge and want to limit what others do with their bodies?  Pro-choice being exactly the opposite, advocating a woman’s right to choose.

On the “war of words” with Laura Ingraham:

McCain: I had never heard of her before until this happened.

Enough said.

Campbell Brown, like other journalists, is starting the inevitable (re)discovery of the man, Barack Obama. Let alone the United States Congress.

David Gregory in the House!

Never thought I’d enjoy seeing David Gregory lay the smack down so much.

60 Jobs and “Saved Lives”

Posted in U.S. by Ryan on the March 3rd, 2009

Obama is trumpeting the news that 60 jobs (you read it right, 60 jobs) have been created to help resurface a road in Montgomery County, Maryland, the county I grew up in.  While I find it comical to mention this number as an accomplishment, obviously he is pointing to the speed with which this stimulus bill is having effect.  To me it seems like more of a miracle that legislation passed so recently actually made it through the red tape to getting spent already.  I suppose the bill was written with that goal, but goodness knows that we’ll be hearing horror stories about how some of the money was spent in this frenzied fashion.

If the government can’t account for millions during a “non-crisis” time, who knows what will happen when we’ve got hundreds of billions burning a hole in our pocket.

But Obama doesn’t disappoint, he goes on to talk about deaths on roads and somehow accounts 14,000 to poorly maintained roads.  Really Mr. President?  This stimulus bill is going to save lives on roads because there won’t be pot holes?  Or maybe the lines weren’t painted well and during a rainstorm someone drove off the side of the road?

Thank goodness Obama and crew are here to save us from ourselves!
