The American Thinker Blog wrote this piece in 2007. It describes how Barack Obama made a pledge that he would complete his term in the U.S. Senate and not seek a higher office. Ruthless ambition on his part and political expediency on Arlen Specter's part.
But that is not the reason for this column. The media villified George Bush for increasing spending and increasing the size of government. The same media pushed for Obama who is doing the same damn thing. During the election I said you could buy Obama on QVC; he was a package being sold by the DNCC and the Dems. Nothing has changed.
