Obama Laces into McCain’s “No Change Express”

FLINT, Mich. — Sen. Barack Obama laced into his Republican rival at a Michigan community college on Monday, blasting the McCain Campaign’s famous “Straight Talk Express” as more like a “No Change Express.”

It is the first time Obama has used that line, which was well received by the union-heavy crowd of more than 300 people, according to the Flint Fire Dept.

Obama singled out Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as a false prophet of change, tweaking her for being for the “Bridge to Nowhere” before she was against it.

“You can’t just make stuff up!” he told the largely middle-aged crowd. “You can’t just reinvent yourself,” he added, arguing that the GOP ticket cannot offer change when it promises the same Republican policies on taxes, health care, education, ethics and rebuilding American infrastructure.

MI Gov. Granholm has been stumping for Obama.

Obama spoke while standing in front of three large hybrid sport utility vehicles — he told voters  an Obama administration would build cars in Flint, not Japan — and beneath a giant American flag. He took some questions from the friendly crowd, discussing military spending, Fannie Mae, Social Security and economic challenges. Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and Congressman John Conyers accompanied Obama, but did not speak at the event.

Obama’s speech focused on populist economics, and he repeatedly linked ending the war in Iraq to renewing the U.S. economy.

There's no change that you can see here: How about the truth … check out CAGW.org. The Pokers Track Records for 2008: Obama = 53 Pork Projects/97.4 Million; Biden = 70 Pork Projects/119.7 Million; Reid = 160 Pork Projects/$259.5 Million; Clinton = 281 Pork Projects/296.2 Million; and McCain = 0 Pork Projects/$0. Check it out … it makes for fascinating reading.
