Then they played Jay Carney, White House press secretary, and he was saying, "The president was advocating on a policy that he believes is essential."
If that's really true then why did Barack miss both Congressional votes on this issue in 2007?
I think that's a question that needs to be answered..
And until it is answered, I think that campaign stops -- on tax payer dollars -- is the right call.
I also agree that it's a phony issue. I took out loans. I've actually paid mine all off. And if I hadn't, Barack's 'help' would mean nothing to me because it only applies on loans being taken out right now. Not existing loans.
So yes, it is a phoney issue. And that's very clear. And I can't link to the NPR hourly story but I can link to the newswrap on The NewsHour (PBS) which was basically the same story (link has audio, text and video)
Okay, I need to note some stuff:.
Mike and I spoke on the phone last night. I didn't mean for him to feel like he had to blog about Laura Nyro and Janis Ian. But it was sure nice of him to do so. Elaine's Smash coverage is the main reason I watch the NBC show. And then there's Ruth. She's covering the John Edwards trial every night at her site so be sure to check her out.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
