The road less traveled

Whatever Michelle says is the message, so the message from Phoenix is:

This campaign has shown America that Barack Obama may not be perfect, but this campaign has also shown America that Barack Obama will always take the high road. Consistently. Over and over and over. He will always take the high road.

Well. From the archives, we know that Obama likes to talk about taking the high road while also liking to take the low road.

Indeed, when talking about the influence of special interests and the malevolent presence of lobbyists in the campaign and in Washington D.C. one would conclude that the high road would be characterized by a very safe distance from those.

Yet if there is one thing this campaign has shown America is that Barack Obama will always talk about taking the high road while that road remains the road less traveled.

The road he will talk about but will not take. Consistently. Over and over and over and over and over and over.



UP, UP AND AWAY: We might as well also question the height of the road Obama is on when he blames his staff for mistakes or lies about his family history.
