Barackin' And Rollin'

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was kicking some butt yesterday. Addressing a crowd in New Mexico, Obama responded to John McCain's silly claim that if he were president he would fire SEC Chairman Christopher Cox -- the president doesn’t have the authority to fire the SEC chairman -- by saying that it's time to fire all of Team Bush and don’t let anyone who looks so much like him win in November.

"In the next 47 days you can fire the whole trickle-down, on-your-own, look-the-other-way crowd in Washington who has led us down this disastrous path. Don't just get rid of one guy. Get rid of this administration. Get rid of this philosophy. Get rid of the do-nothing approach to our economic problems and put somebody in there who's going to fight for you."

As much as I like him in general, this is the Barack Obama I really like.
