In a post this morning, Jennifer Rubin observes that we have more questions than answers about Barack Obama.Â As the campaign winds down, the Democrat is trying run out the clock, not wanting to risk losing wavering supporters, hoping to still sway some undecided voters to move his way.
Now, we learn, via the indispensable Jake Tapper, that when asked how his Treasury Secretary, should he win on Tuesday, would handle the $700 billion set aside for a bailout of the financial industry, Obama promised a press conference on Wednesday, after the election.
Looks like this Democrat is not very forthcoming how he plans to lead the nation.
If Sarah Palin had dodged questions the way Obama does, the media would have a field day.Â Ed Morrissey opines:
Remember when the media screeched over Sarah Palin’s lack of press availability after the convention?Â Neither Obama nor Joe Biden have taken questions from the press in weeks.Â If Palin’s fortnight of preparation somehow revealed her unreadiness for higher office, what does this say about Barack Obama?
Should Obama win and he governs as he has campaigned, he’ll be a lot more like George W. Bush than would John McCain.Â He’ll hold the media at arm’s length.Â But, so smitten are so many in the media with the Democrat that they’ll fail to see his flaws and continue their swoon, seeing his distance as a mark of distinction rather than disdain.
