Barack Attack

Obama manages to be pleasant and appealing, and to go on offense.  (Via).  I can’t wait for the “there you go again” moments in his debates against McCain.

“McCain thought that he could make a clever point by saying, ‘Well let me give you some news, Barack, Al Qaeda is in Iraq,’ like I wasn’t reading the papers, like  didn’t know what was going on.” Obama said, leaning into his developing McCain impression.

He then described the context — a hypothetical question from Tim Russert — and said, “First of all, I do know Al Qaeda is in Iraq, and that’s why I said we should continue to strike Al Qaeda targets.”

“I have some news for John McCain,” Obama continued, “That’s there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq until George Bush and John McCain” began the Iraq war, he said.

“They took their eye off the people who really were responsible for 9/11,” he said.

This is good policy, and it happens even to be polling well.

Being a Democrat right now is like being a Red Sox fan.  It’s strange not to be the underdog and not to expect your side to screw it all up.   I could get used to it, though.

One Response to “Barack Attack”

  1. southernvoice Says:

    This is interesting. They are having a contest on who can out do the other and use Arab terrorists to justify more attacks upon innocent people.

    1. Can you explain why neither the news channel, Tim Russert, Barack Obama, Hillary clinton nor John McCain make one single comment regarding WHY we were attacked on 9-11?

    2. Why don’t Obama and Clinton talk about the source and causes of terrorism against America? Please explain this stunning situation.

    3. Can you explain why America should make the sacrifices we are making in the middle east on behalf of an ethnic state which goes against the United States Consitution?

    4. Tell me where these candidates get most of their campaign money?

    5. Obama has stated in the past that he supported the Palestinian cause. Can you explain why he changed his stance and now supports Israel?

    6. Hillary once embraced a Palestinian woman on stage before she went to the podium to give a speech. What happened to her? Why has she changed her stance and now supports Isarel.

    7. Do you believe that our policies toward the middle east represent American traditions, the Constitution, Christian values?
