I think we need to quit blaming Sarah Palin and quit blaming the media. Obama had a golden opportunity today to seize the offensive and he blew it. During the press conference criticizing Bush’s weak pullout plan of Iraq and McCain’s endorsement of this failure, Obama was lobbed a softball by the press – McCain and Palin say they are the agents of Change, they’ve co-opted your message, how can you let them get away with that (I’m paraphrasing.)
Obama SHOULD HAVE SAID: Their message is fraudulent, we are the agents of change. How can you vote with Bush 95% of the time and call yourselves change agents? It’s a LIE. The media needs to quit being stenographers and do your homework. McCain is a Republican and he supports a Republican president that has lost jobs, hurt the economy, stuck us in a war for 6 years with no end in sight, watched the price of gas double and put thousands of people out of their homes. Of course American needs change, the change from the Republicans to the Obama-Biden presidency.
Instead he said: Well, uh, you know, they were talking a few months ago, uh, about experience, and uh, now that message hasn’t resonated and uh, we were always talking about change. So uh, that’s a debate we’re willing to have. I think the American people, uh, will get it and they uh, know the difference.
WHAT THE @$%!!?? These weak-kneed responses won’t work. This is an electorate with a 2-second attention span. Obama has the microphone. Obama has the stage. Obama has the message. Obama has the right message. If he can’t deliver the winning message running against a weak candidate tied to the weakest President in history, he deserves to lose.
FIGHT BACK! The Kerry-Gore prayer that “Americans will get it” and choose the candidate that best represents them rather than the Republicans who represent the 2% wealthiest Americans and big business won’t work.
FIGHT BACK or lose. That’s the only choice.
