Obama claims stake in new Wall St deal

Agence France-Presse
Published: Sunday September 28, 2008


DETROIT, Michigan (AFP) Democrat Barack Obama complained Sunday it was an "outrage" that taxpayers had to bail out Wall Street but said a newly minted deal in Congress took stock of his demands and was essential to rescue the economy.

In prepared remarks for a rally here in the nation's automaking capital, the White House contender said the deal struck in marathon talks in Washington was no longer a "blank check" for the government.

Senator Obama mocked the activist role claimed by John McCain, his Republican opponent in the November 4 election, towards brokering the agreement in Congress on the government's 700-billion-dollar bailout request.

2. What a weird way to spin his words
I'm not surprised that emerged from Agence France-Presse. lol

I thought Obama was very clear, direct and cogent.
