In an interview with NBC’s David Gregory Sunday, Obama Senior Adviser David Plouffe was bubbling with confidence ahead of Tuesday’s presidential election. Calm, cool, and collected. Just like a duck on a pond. Dude has no clue how Tuesday’s going to shake out, but he’s sure talking a big game. He says he thinks the race is set, stable, and one that favors the president. Wishful thinking, I suppose.
As I said in an earlier post; on the Sunday before a presidential election, at least 50% of what your’e going to hear or read about from campaign advisers is going to be either A) misinformation; B) strategy and misdirection: or C) total bullshit.
I think this one qualifies as a nice little blend of all three.
Either way, watch and listen closely as Plouffe speaks about the president’s leadership on Sandy and the hard road ahead for much of the East Coast. He uses the same language he always goes to when he’s compelled to speak about the state of the economy.
“Its going to take a long time to recover.”
”We’re doing everything we can.”
“This was really an UNPRECEDENTED storm”
“We’re doing everything we can.”
“So we’re doing everything we can.”
“Its going to take a while to recover.”
“We’re going to be there each and every day.”
“We’ve made a lot of progress; not enough.”
“The president’s been working on this intensively.”
Heard any of those before?
Anyone in New York or New Jersey want to double down on both recoveries if these guys are still pulling the strings come January?
Need a refresher?
