"What Can I Tell You"

All I can say is that Obama must be getting desperate if he was willing to go on the O'Reilly Factor after the convention. He's already losing white men and independents, and now white women have turned against him. Watch him get chewed up by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News on the question of his relationship with the infamous Reverend Wright starting at about the 4:30 mark:

So, O'Reilly nails him when he claims he never heard Wright say "Not God bless America, God damn America!" when he points out that the very speeches that are now so famous were for sale in the church's lobby every time Obama went to attend services there. Obama's response? "What can I tell you."

"What can I tell you?!"

Uh, well BHO, how about a substantive response to the question. Is it really credible that you didn't know, for over 20 years, that your "spiritual mentor" harbored such fierce anti-American views? And that you never noticed the videos for sale in the lobby? What can I tell you isn't an answer, it's a punt. And we can't afford a president who punts.

I'm trying to imagine what kind of a President he would make under pressure...

Reporter: "President Obama, the Iranians just launched a nuclear weapon from an offshore barge using a using a North Korean missile that could have been shot down using 1980's technology, but you pulled all the funding for missile defense. Given that Los Angeles is now a burning cinder, and the Wild Goose is no longer open, how can you defend this judgment you made?"

President Obama: "What can I tell you."

I'm beginning to get the impression the guy is trying to lose this election...
