Obama Pledges to Fight Special AFL-CIO Rally (right slanted article)

Rick Moran
The Hill is reporting that Obama gave a speech at an AFL-CIO rally where he decried the influence of "special interests."

Apparently, not recognizing irony is one of the senator's weaknesses:

A McCain staffer writes us: "Obama goes before a liberal special interest group with deep pockets, panders to them, and then accuses others of being in the pocket of the special interests. Politics as usual with Obama. He's quite a change agent. What's next -- go before and accuse others of being soft on national security?"

Or perhaps speaking before a group of trial lawyers and bemoaning the cost to doctors of malpractice insurance.

I have no doubt that by the time midsommer's eve rolls around, not only will the faeries be dancing in the glen but the American people will be heartily sick of Obama's two faced rhetoric.
