Hey fastdem...

Seems like your buddy, Obama, reads and heeds Rand.

Hey, just got on and saw this. It was nice of you to think of me...

The way I read the quote, it seemed like he was saying in so many words that McCain/Palin's defense of the Bush tax cut and opposition to 'redistribution of wealth' was selfishness. And that he was wondering when sefishness becomes a virtue. I don't think Obama's comment was in support so I don't think the word heeds applies. But I bet he's read it. It is a thought provoking book and I am glad it is being discussed more in college and in general. However, I stand by the idea that as a work of literature it ain't great.

Oh, sorry, I didn't think he agreed with it. Just that he certainly reads it. haha.

Sort of like I read and listen to Juan Enriquez but don't necessarily agree with him.

I'll be with the Collin County Republicons on Election night. I helped a few with their campaigns this year. Plus that damn GTG would take me close to an hour to get to!
