WASHINGTON (AP) -- Who said the 2008 presidential campaign was over? President Barack Obama upbraided his former Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, on Thursday for resorting to political "talking points" at a health care summit Obama organized in hopes of bridging the divide between the two parties.
After McCain used his time to complain that Obama reneged on a campaign promise to bring "change in Washington," the president bluntly told the Arizona Republican that "we're not campaigning any more. The election is over."
McCain retorted that he's "reminded of that every day."

Not only was that comment disrespectful, but the earlier one when he was reminded that the democrats had held the floor for more than twice the amount of time that the republicans had, Obama responded with yeah, but I'm the president so my time doesn't count. My chin hit the floor. I couldn't believe the arogance and disrespect on his part. So much for his whole bipartisan meeting. Like one republican senator said, it was just a bunch of "smoke and mirrors."

Soooooooooo apparently Obama is OK with saying what he needsto get a vote.. AND Obama is ok with not being held accountable to his words and campaign promises.... So, vote for him because he says all the right things, but don't actually think he will DO THEM.... Ohh right, he is no different then any other politician.... Free Pass, ugh... How has that "same politician banter worked out for America in the past? Yup... Isn't that why he promised change? Yup... The people who voted for Obama at election time? Death of Common Sense in America...

Obama runs on his emotions quite often......instead of thinking through what he says.
Obama has been campaigning the last four years.
