Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16438329/) laid the blame for the government takeover of mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the feet of Democrats and Republicans alike Monday, saying his own party was complicit in mistakes that led to the companies’ loss of more than $14 billion in the past year.

“I have to be fair on this one,” Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois, said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Countdown With Keith Olbermann.” “Republicans and Democrats, I think, in Congress did not pay enough attention to the structural problem with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”

The biggest issue currently facing our nation is being pushed under the rug because of this absolutely silly contest about who has more experience.

Its time to talk about the issues that face this nation not about the beauty pagent.

The fact remains that no matter who gets elected they will both have exactly the same amount of experience as the president of the United States their first day in office, Zero (thank god for that, we can't take much more of Bush's experience).

But nobody wants to admit that McCain has publicly said he dosent know much at all about the economy. Scarier than that his chief economic adviser called Americans a bunch of whiners citing that the economy is just fine.

Everyone should read the entrie article. Obama has some articulate swerves himself, back peddles and turns right around and blames the President for Fannie/Freddie when he initially lays the blame on bipartisan politics of republicans and democrats.

Pundits though won't see this and will deflect from things he actually says. Guess I'll wait if anyone else sees these and if the deflections start, guess I'll have to come back and defend the truth...again.
