Being a Grumpy Old Man III

In the historic Fiscal Responsibility Summit, hosted by President Obama and designed for bipartisan input, the President singles out Senator McCain, setting him up honorably. The President spoke of the sincerity of Senator McCain. But instead of actually being sincere and asking a substantive question regarding pressing issues, Senator McCain seemed to want to shame the President, asking him about the proposed presidential helicopter. This was a mistake on many fronts, namely because the President turned what seemed intended as a moment of shame to one of honor and delight.

You gotta love this President! Just maybe he will indeed change the tone in Washington. We hope so.
