Sen. Barack Obama ditched his normal languid cool today, punching back at Gov. Sarah Palin as he spoke with reporters in York, Pa, hotly defending his work as a community organizer. He said he assumes Palin "wants to be treated same way guys want to be treated, which means their records are under scrutinty. I've been through this for 19 months. She's been through it, what four days?"He is right. We republicans already live in organized communities. That's probably why we don't have to worry about 235 murders IN ONE SUMMER.
Obama's hackles were clearly raised by Palin's dismissal of his community organizing --a response to his earlier dismissal of her record as a small-town mayor. "Why would that kind of work be ridiculed?" Obama said. "Who are they fighting for?" The idea that community organizing is not relevant to the presidency, he said, just shows why Republicans "are out of touch and don't get it."
I've got a question apparently missed by all the traditional media while vetting Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter.
Who actually paid Obama during this so called "community organizer" activity? Was it a non profit group? We already know that he has some affiliation with ACORN. Was that who paid him?
Where did his paychecks come from?
What was his primary mission? Was he providing free legal advice? During the convention, I must have missed all those testimonials of people who Obama helped doing this "community organizing". Who are these people?
Maybe the NY Times can pull one of their 100 reporters in Juneau and ask the same questions.
