Say What?

A few years ago there was a television commercial in which a young man made a phone call to his mother. She complained that he never called and he responded, “But I am calling you!”

There’s just no pleasing some people.

To help to ease the sting of the mortgage crisis, Senator Obama introduced a plan to give tax relief to ten million homeowners who don’t itemize their taxes.

The McCain campaign said that the plan was essentially “welfare” because some of the homeowners that would be included are unemployed.

Although very few homeowners fell into that category, Obama addressed the issue by adding a work requirement for those who would receive the $500 credit.

The McCain campaign then criticized the plan for offering no help to the unemployed.

There’s just no pleasing some people.

The McCain criticism is off base anyway. Obama’s website lists several credible plans to create millions of new jobs and so decrease unemployment.
