With all of the talk about the economy being in the toilet, I was surprised earlier today when I read that Barack Obama to South Carolina’s The State what the “three most important issues of his administration” would be:
No. 1 would be the war in Iraq, and Obama said he would conduct a phased withdrawal that’s “as careful getting out as we were reckless getting in.”
The No. 2 issue would be health care.
The No. 3 issue would be an energy plan that seeks conservation, new technology to reduce greenhouse gases and energy independence.
I can’t help but wonder if Obama is paying attention to what the national opinion is these days on the most important issues. Near as I can see, Obama doesn’t get that it’s “still the economy” and he’s running in the red on the issue.
