Obama planned four days of cramming at the resort at the historic colonial city of Williamsburg, ahead of Tuesday's crucial second debate against his Republican opponent with the November 6 election on a knife edge.Shouldn't the President of something important like, you know, a country, already be on top of the issues and the facts?
And isn't this a "town hall" where "ordinary citizens" ask pressing questions like, "boxers or briefs"? What kind of cramming is necessary for that?!
The Prez came across at the last debate as if he was trying to recall his memorized lines. We need someone in command of the issues and the facts.
And the more I think about Big Bird, the more I realize the US is sorely lacking in gravitas and a sense of proportion. It's like the Titanic has hit the 'berg, and people are complaining, "what do you mean the dining room will be closed at 10?". The US is barreling towards a debt cliff, the incumbent President is shoveling money into the hole like crazy, and people are worried about Big Bird?!
It will be interesting to see if the Bird rears his ugly head on Tuesday.
And that's the way the Big Ball bounces.
