The McCain campaign has attacked Barack Obama for his use of the
old phrase about lipstick on a pig. They claim it’s a sexist attack
on GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin, whose signature line involves
lipstick. The McCain folks are over-acting here, but Obama’s poor
choice of words in choosing this hackneyed phrase reveals things
considerably more relevant. While it’s immensely enjoyable to watch
a lefty get caught in the ever-changing world of what is
politically correct, that’s not the real lesson.

Referring to the promises that President Obama made: promises cannot be kept when a recalcitrant Congress, no, change that to an out-and-out obstructionist Congress, does not even pretend to compromise. A broken promise is NOT a lie. Even though the Democrats had a majority in the Senate for a time, it did not have a filibuster-proof majority. And add to that the Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, who vowed to make Obama a “one term president,”and do you have? Nothing, absolutely no progress for the country. The Republicans have demonstrated time after time that they are more interested in party politics than in getting the problems of this nation solved.
