Barack Obama was obviously a little perturbed by the line of questioning at the Democratic debate Wednesday night on ABC, so much so, that the senator has implied that he doesn’t see the point of debating Clinton again. He managed to hold his composure as usual, but a good guess would be that his frustration stems from being, once again, inundated with the questions regarding controversial statements by his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and his own comments that some rural Pennsylvanians are “bitter.” But after the debate, he let it rip with a few choice words…for him anyway.
On Thursday the senator had this to say, “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 then went on to say, “Now, I don’t blame Washington for this; that’s just how Washington is. … They like stirring up controversy; they like playing ‘gotcha’ games. … I will say Sen. Clinton looked in her element.”
If those quotes didn’t do it justice, we totally understand. Check out Obama as he gets that “dirt off his shoulders” while addressing his supporters. Jay-Z would be so proud!
