According to the AP, “Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is calling for Americans to get behind attempts to salvage a $700 billion rescue plan for the financial sector.” But his own advisers told the New York Times that he didn’t call skeptical House Democrats to lift a finger.
Which Obama are we supposed to follow? The guy on the campaign trail? Or the politician behind the scenes? We’ve seen this public/private discrepancy with Obama before. Remember the NAFTA flap? Publicly he declared that it would have to be renegotiated, but privately, his adviser assured the Canadians that he didn’t really mean it.
And he accused McCain of “dos caras.”
