Again, don’t believe the hype about Obama’s lead being smaller than it should be. There is no historical parallel for this situation. Period. His lead is what it is. Don’t fight it. Love it. And use the fear that a McCain surge might inspire to ensure that it does not happen. To arms, my friends! There are two months left after the conventions. Start scrimping on coffee and lunches and send the money to Obama and the Democrats.
BTW, Obama’s campaign needs more talk like this:
McCain’s “tendency is to shoot first and to ask questions later,” she (Susan Rice) said on a conference call alongside former White House anti-terrorism adviser Richard Clarke, who called the Republican “trigger-happy” and “reckless.”
McCain, according to Rice, “cheer-led (President George W.) Bush’s decision to take our eye off the ball and start a war in Iraq that had nothing to do with 9/11.”
“This is a record that belies anything approaching sound judgment,” she said.
Clarke added, “he has consistently been quick-draw McCain here on every issue. His first instinct is to rattle sabers and look for a military solution.”
Love it. And also love Richard Clarke, the only truly honorable official in the aftermath of 9/11.
