NYTimes article regarding remarks Barack Obama made:
He has declared her family off limits. He has praised her biography, telling an audience, “Mother, governor, moose shooter — that’s cool.” But he has taken sharp aim at her record as Alaska governor, vigorously questioning her evolving stance on the state’s so-called bridge to nowhere.
“She was for it until everybody started raising a fuss about it and she started running for governor and then suddenly she was against it,” Mr. Obama said, speaking over an applauding crowd in Michigan. “I mean, you can’t just make stuff up. You can’t just recreate yourself. You can’t just reinvent yourself. The American people aren’t stupid.”
Umm, Mr. Obama, 50% of American voters re-elected George Bush and you’re telling me they’re not that stupid? That fact that this election is so close should serve as another example of American stupidity. Don’t give Americans too much credit – you’ll save yourself a lot of grief.
