Obama continues to whine

This is pathetic. Knock him around a little on issues of late, put a few chinks in his armor, and tarnish him a tad, and Barack Obama gets all girly and whiny. CNN is reporting that Obama doesn't want to do another debate:

Sen. Barack Obama suggested Thursday that he doesn't see any point in having another debate with Democratic rival Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has agreed to a debate next week, but Obama has not accepted the invitation.

At an appearance in Raleigh, North Carolina, Obama said he has a lot of campaigning to do in a limited amount of time.

Obama said he had agreed to an earlier debate, but Clinton declined that one.

"I'll be honest with you, we've now had 21," he said. "It's not as if we don't know how to do these things. I could deliver Sen. Clinton's lines; she could, I'm sure, deliver mine."

Obama said he has to look at his schedule, considering the upcoming primaries.

The two Democrats went head-to-head in a debate Wednesday night on ABC.

During the first part of that debate, the candidates largely rehashed the controversies that have marked their past six weeks on the campaign trail.

Much of the fire was leveled at Obama, who once again answered questions about controversial statements by his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and his own comments that some rural Pennsylvanians are "bitter."

Obama said it took too long for them to address anything substantial.

"Last night, we set a new record, because it took us 45 minutes before we even started talking -- until we started talking about a single issue that matters to the American people," he said.

I'm so sorry that Obama thinks that there wasn't anything substantive in the first forty-five minutes. The average voter disagrees. Yes, it was a rehash of old controversies, but it speaks volumes to the people to see how these people deal with such issues. Hillary, for her part, admitted she lied about the Tuzla Dash. Obama, however, was very evasive about Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers (shame on Charlie and Georgie for NOT bring up Tony Rezko and Nadhmi Auchi).

The rest of the debate did stay on policy issues, but their issues are so off the mark it's disgusting. Praise Charles Gibson for calling him on the carpet about capital gains hikes. But if Obama thinks that it was bad to be challenged on personal issues, he's wrong. People need to see how a potential president might react to such things. And not just on controversies, folks, but we want to see how candidates will deal with a contentious, and possibly hostile press.

But instead Barack Obama whines. "WAAAAAAH! WAAAAAAH! They're picking on me!" Hillary's been brow-beat by the press since she announced her candidacy. John McCain has had three hit pieces put out on him by the Old Grey Lady. You don't see them whining, do you. Suck it up Senator. If you don't want people criticizing you, maybe you ought to head back to the sandbox with Chris Matthews and the Kos Kiddies.
