Really, they should get a room:
OBAMA: Well, I think there are a whole host of areas where Republicans in some cases may have a better idea.
WALLACE: Such as.
OBAMA: Well, on issues of regulation, I think that back in the ‘60s and ‘70s, a lot of the way we regulated industry was top down command and control. ... I think that on issues of education, I have been very clear about the fact, and sometimes I have gotten in trouble with the teachers union on this, that we should be experimenting with charter schools. ... when I voted for a tort reform measure that was fiercely opposed by the trial lawyers, I got attacked pretty hard from the left.
Yes, a whole host of better ideas. The common thread in each case is right there, though unstated: like the Republicans (and nearly all other Democrats as well), Obama favors corporate interests over human interests.
Over the past few days I've been thinking that the best thing about Jeremiah Wright is that he's blowing Obama's progressive-in-centrist-clothing pose—but really, what's the point? Obama does it repeatedly himself, standing at his window to empty his chamberpot on the throngs of admirers below, and they just marvel at how he can call down rain from the sky.
