Conservative talk radio has been smoldering the air waves today with criticism of President Barack Obama over his choice of condiments. The fact that Obama ordered a cheeseburger for lunch yesterday with Dijon mustard, not ketchup is proof to them that the president is an un-American elitist. Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Mark Steyn have all criticized Obama's burger.
Some conservatives are upset because PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley, told Harry Reid to put down the crack pipe and acknowledge that Democrats in Congress work for Barack Obama. Smiley added that, "We all work for Barack Obama." This little comment has brought out the media bias conspiracy again.
Here is the video:
Sarah Palin ran to rescue of John McCain and his comments about the economy during part one of her interview with Sean Hannity which will air tonight. She said that Democrats are unfairly attacking McCain for saying that the fundamentals of the economy are strong.
A great deal of time and effort will be spent discussing energy in the upcoming election. I am glad to see this dialogue and think that citizens, elected officials and experts alike need to be open to learning about new approaches and policy options. A flexible mind is not a sign of flip-flopping.
