Portman Mocks Obama at McCain Rally
By Robert Barnes
The Nutter Center at Wright State University is full for Sen. John McCain's "Road to the Convention'' rally, a backdrop of waving American flags, hand-painted signs and a highschool band. Former congressman and budget director Rob Portman revved up the crowd, calling McCain a hero and Democratic Sen. Barack Obama "arguably qualified" to be the junior senator
He mocked Obama's speech last night, saying "the government under a Barack Obama administration will provide for everything.'' He added a line that President Bill Clinton once used against Obama: "That's a fairy tale.''
Outside, protestors were out in force, shouting "John McCain, more of the same.'' And a billboard across from the entrance showed what is now becoming an iconic photograph of McCain hugging President Bush, with the bold headline: "Does this look like change?"
