From Little Green Footballs...
From John at Power Line notices another in a seemingly endless series of gaffes from the Naive Messiah: The Fine Line Between Pandering and Lying.
Obama continued:Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don’t have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon.But Obama is not a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. Obama just made that up so he could count the committee’s action as one of “my deeds.”

And here’s the video clip:
I'm not sure whether the mainstream media is in the tank for this guy because of any other reason than they feel THEY can make a difference. I sense that because THEY were able to bring down a president and stop the Vietnam war, they have always (at least for the past 40 years) believed that they are the sole purveyor of truth, justice and the American way.
Here comes along this nobody, this empty suit, who looks great, speaks well and is racially perfect for a post-racial world. In addition, he is the politically polar opposite of the conservative Bush administration. This is now THEIR chance to make history again, just like the '60s!
My belief is that most Americans, regardless of the fact (or maybe in lieu of the fact) that most British, French and German solidly back Obama, will not be swayed when pulling that lever on November 4th. In fact, I was quite surprised to read on an ABC News story's comments section the amount of resentment the majority of those who commented had towards the "anointed one."
Furthermore, I was stunned at the interviews that Katie Couric gave on CBS last night as well. Although she still gave twice as much time to Obama than to Senator McCain, she clearly pointed out the stark contrast between a 30-year senate leader and a 141-day senate newbie. I mean seriously, Senator Obama has been a candidate for President longer than he has spent serving the people of Illinois.
I'm telling you, folk. This is NOT the kind of change this country needs. Electing Barack Obama would simply be a knee-jerk reaction that would greatly damage our country and the free world as we know it. Hate George Bush all you want. But an Obama presidency will set us back much, much further than anything Bush has done. Yeah, yeah, I know some friends in France see it different. That's their opinion. I'm sticking to mine.
