*It’s Lancashire for “grandmother”.
Now, I’d be the last to question Obama’s sincerity as regards his emotions towards his nan, and as I don’t know the man I’m therefore not really in a position to say whether the tears he was crying in front of billions yesterday were crocodillean or real. But it does seem rather convenient, doesn’t it. The timing, I mean.
I’m not even saying he’d be a bad president. But as he is a socialist, I’d have thought that’s a risk that the American People ought not to want to take – seen from a Randian perspective. That’s not to say McCain would be much better; however, the Americans ought to get back into the habit of choosing to elect those who are slightly less collectivist in outlook than this one – and who won’t tlak so freely of “sharing the wealth around”, as though it was some sort of collective property that wasn’t being distributed right.
Also, we learn that he’s been sent by God. Aways tricky, that one…..
