Obama Responds to Bailout Vote: ‘Get This Done’

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Sen. Barack Obama swiftly reacted to the failed congressional vote on the bailout on Monday afternoon, casting the setback as a “bump in the road” that would not prevent ultimate passage of a “rescue package.”

“While things are never smooth in Congress,” Obama told voters as soon as he took the stage, “understand that it will get done.”

Then Obama boiled down his simple message for Congress: “Get this done!”

Obama called for calm as Congress struggles with reaching consensus on a bailout — a mood that is not felt in the markets today — but also repeatedly told voters it was an “outrage” that the Republican “philosophy” of deregulation and trickle down economics has led to this avoidable crisis.

Obama depicted the bailout’s road through Washington as tough, but eminently doable. “It’s sorta like flying into Denver,” Obama told voters to wide applause, “you know you’re going to land, but it’s not always fun going over those mountains.”

Obama also apologized for appearing late at the rally, explaining that he was on the phone with Sec. Paulson, Speaker Pelosi and congressional leaders.

Confidence aside, Obama did not offer a specific plan for how the rescue plan could recruit more support — from rank and file members of Congress or the many Americans who oppose the proposal.
