Obama has a Bill Clinton Moment

June 11, 2008 · Filed Under Ethics, Gaffe ·  

Barack Obama has been stumbling and bumbling as he tries to explain his methodology for selecting the group of folks who will be vetting his Vice President prospects.

Obama seemed to be blindsided by the close relationship Jim Johnson has with Countrywide Financial Corp, a company he has demonized as he’s spoken around the country.

And his campaign for change has to be questioned when another of his vetters is Eric Holder, “the Clinton Justice Department official in the middle of the sleazy pardon for fugitive financier Marc Rich.”

Good, old fashioned cronyism.

Criticism of these picks has led to a whine from Obama that he’d have to hire a vetter to vet the vetters.

He went on to say “these aren’t folks who are working for me”.

The people Obama brought on to help select his running mate are not working for him? Is Obama rudderless?

It depends on what the meaning of the words ‘is’ is.

See Obama trying to explain it in a press conference yesterday. Would somebody please get him a script! He’s drowning here.
