Morning Edition

So this was on NPR's Morning Edition:

James Coobler, a retiree living in central Florida, says he's undecided.

"Obama, I can't read. I think he tells you what you want to hear," Coobler said. "John McCain seems to be much more of a quiet person but is straightforward as far as what he says."

So, let's break this down, Mr Coobler. Obama "tells you what you want to hear," in other words, Obama is saying things you agree with. Whereas "McCain... is straightforward," presumably because he is so blunt about saying how we need to hunker down and win in Iraq; in other words, McCain is telling things you don't agree with.

Here's a hint: vote for the guy who says things you agree with.
