Obama: Don't Listen to McCain. Do What He Says!

Barack Obama is presently droning on about the economy with the kind of rhetoric you would expect from a liberal of the bigger-the-government-the-better-the-government stripe, but what I thought was hilarious was his attack against John McCain for suggesting we need a 9/11 type commission to study what has gone wrong recently, only to turn around several minutes later and insist that we need a regulator's committee.

So we need a committee, not a commission.

Is that what Obama means by "change?"

Off topic, but why isn't anyone talking about this "change" either?

The difference is that McCain would possible get credit for one, while Obama gets credit for the other. That's the only difference I see.

Obama is afraid if they form a commission to investigate what happened with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, they will find a lot of money was donated to Obama and Sen. Chris Dodd. Who knows who else was paid by these two failures. We know the CEOs of these two institutions were paid extremely well. Were these two Senators paid to turn their backs on a problem? I am sure that is why Obama does not want an investigation. He just wants to blame those who had nothing to do with the situation. Ayers and Obama, joined at the hip.

If you want a good example of what the US economy is going to look like when the libtards get done with their shenanigans, take a look at almost bankrupt Calimexifornia or Michigan. One hair away from bankrupt! I really don't have a very good feeling about this one sportsfans.

Ron, The party thats in its death rattle phase is clearly the democrats. The best they could come up with the past two elections were a couple of lifelike robots that couldnt even defeat the most unpopular president ever. And then they trot out a slick weasel with no experience who dazzles people with his talk of change while conducting buisness as usual? As you say hopefully a real alternative will come out of this.

A commission and a committee are actually quite distinct, a commission is a temporary congressional body which is formed to create a report and recommendations, like the 9-11 commission, while a committee is a congressional body that is tasked with preparing legislation on a specific topic, and monitoring the government agencies related, like the committee on energy and commerce, both may be a good idea tho.
