State Senator Kirk Watson, Obama Supporter, Can't Answer Or List One Obama Accomplishment
Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign Wednesday pounced on a recent television interview with a surrogate of Barack Obama who was unable to identify a single accomplishment in the Illinois Democrat's Senate record.
The interview in question was with [Congresswoman Stephanie] Tubbs Jones and Texas State Sen. Kirk Watson on MSNBC Tuesday night. Host Chris Matthews asked Watson, a supporter of Obama, to name the Illinois senator's chief legislative accomplishments.
Obama supporters are crying foul on Matthews; that he "berated" Watson. I'm no fan of Matthews, but he asked the right question and kept a legitimate "press" on Watson. Watson stumbles and stammers all over the place desperately trying to concoct a response - and he fails miserably.
Give me a break. If you're supporting a candidate - and especially if you yourself are an elected official - and you can't list one single reason or issue that the person you are supporting stands for, then you either haven't done your homework or the person you're supporting really is as vague and idealess as he is being made out to be.
