The headline above represents my overall feeling about what has been going on with the Obama Campaign and the media. Lets see if we can make sense of what they have been doing strategy wise with their, Obama's and the media's, campaign.
Biden Says Its Patriotic To Raise Taxes- After watching this guy on Good Morning America one has to wonder if he is actively trying to sabotage an already damaged campaign. Here is how Hot Air reported it:
Biden told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday that, in his words, “it’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”
So, let me get this straight, to help a struggling economy, the patriotic thing to do is to raise taxes and drive businesses out of America? It's quite funny that someone from the Obama campaign is lecturing us on patriotism, I mean do you really want to go there?
The Candidate Of Hope Is Getting A Bit Angry- Someone is sounding a bit less "hopeful" on the campaign trail these days and a bit more desperate. Here's a gem from a recent campaign stop:
"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face," he said
Let me tell you something Obama, your glassy eyed followers are already loud and obnoxious so don't worry they are making plenty of noise and that doesn't exactly help you. What I love about what's happening with Obama now is that the true Chicago street guy is finally coming out. This dude who hung out with his buddies Tony Rezko, William Ayers, Reverand Wright and no doubt other angry folks is finally showing who he really is.
Polls Have To Over Sample Democrats In Order To Make McCain/Obama Even- The media's campaign for Obama has really hit a new low. Here is CBS News:
In a sign that John McCain's convention bounce has dissipated, Barack Obama has taken a 48 percent to 43 percent lead over his Republican rival among registered voters in the latest CBS News/New York Times poll.
This would be a bit startling to the McCain supporters, until you look at who they asked. In the sample it was 42% democrats, 32% Republicans, 28% Independents. So there is a 10 point discrepency between Republicans and Democrats and Obama only leads by 5? But this demonstrates how desperate the media is to change the narrative of the campaign. This is bad news for Obama, not good news.
Final Thoughts- The first debate is going to be the most pivotal event of this election and I believe after that debate we will have a more clear view on things. The media and the Obama campaign are going to do everything in there power to pull this off and it's up to us to call them out on bias, bad strategy and outright lying. Until tomorrow...
