No, no David Plouffe is our best friend these days. :)
I am really hoping that Rush, Laura and the others pick this up on Monday. This ad has me boiling. I’m ready to fight!
“The Obama-Biden Campaign is in Meltdown”
I will sleep well tonite.
No! Leave him alone.
The timing of the meltdown couldn’t be better.
Remember, though there are lots of political junkies on sites like this one, millions of undecided Americans are just starting to pay attetion to the election campaign. And they aren’t liking what they see of Obama. The first pres. debate in an election year is the most watched one. If McCain outshines Obama in that debate, that might be the beginning of the end for Obama. People’s minds will start being made up.
And with the spread of early voting and absentee voting in so many states, many millions of votes will have been cast two or three weeks before election day, which makes it harder for dirty campaigns to do an “October surprise” and influence the outcome.
Time is growing short for Obama to turn this around.
Sorry. No can do. There's no room left under the bus, except for the space reserved for Ayers. The Pouffe is going to have to stay and keep flailing around, making messes all over the place. Too bad.
Get him going with a set-up about Guantanamo, and the "inhuman" practices (har!) there.
Then ask why he is in favor of more rights for the terrorists than for his opponent as President -- as proven by the fact that he used McCain's injuries from torture as a sign of stodginess, not heroism..
Then ask him about Ayers.
damn damn dam.. the Obamamessiah doesn’t know what hit him. they’re shooting in the dark and wailing their arms hoping something sticks. that fool Obama doesn’t crap about sacrifice for one’s country. Pack your Styrofoam Columns citizen of the world... and move to the UN.
After five years as a prisoner of war, John McCain returned home with physical injuries that would have a lasting impact. His broken arms make it painful to lift his hands above his shoulders or to use a keyboard.
Barack Obama thinks that’s funny. The guy can’t use a computer. He and his wife read e-mails together and she will key in his responses.
Barack Obama. Quick to mock...not ready to lead.
I’m not sure that there are enough words to portray how incredibly shockingly stupid this particular attack on McCain was. I thought that the lipstick on a pig was disastrous, but Obama better get out the life preservers on this one. The storm that’s coming is going to be epochal for his campaign.
I hope they still have 50 more days of stupid on 'em.
Will Fox be the only station to actually report on this? I'm beginning to doubt it and if they do, I'm sure it will be chalked up to a gaffe.
Don't bet the farm on NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC etc to do more then a 10 second quip about the ad, if they even give it 10 seconds.
Are you sure you are on the right board when you signed up this month? Plouffe is the gift that keeps on giving to Republicans and none of us think he should step down.
When I was very young, my father came home from work and recounted the torture of a man who had given a talk about what he experienced at the hands of the North Koreans as a POW. He was bound, tied and confined to a small cage. I don't remember all the details, but they tied him with leather or something that contracted when it dried. Just when he thought they were coming to release him, they tightened up and wet the bindings instead. Whether he had any information they wanted wasn't clear; it seemed that they were doing it just to be sadistic and that he was the enemy.
It is the sort of thing that leaves a lasting impression. I grew up knowing a lot of things a lot of people that young usually don't know without having been through the horror themselves.
I don't think we should be too exultant at the apparent current disarray in the Obama campaign and the polls. A lot can happen between now and election day.
I’m trying not to get too excited, I know we have a long way to go but at this point all I can say is “melt baby melt!!” :-)

Obama’s campaign is being nibbled to death by ducks, er, uh, cluster ducks.
The Obama camp keeps throwing boomarangs that spin back around and hit them in the butt. The attack on Palin’s experience made experience an issue, and therefore Obama’s lack of experience compared to McCain. His “lipstick on a pig” remark, which everyone knows was intentionally aimed at Palin (watch the crowd reaction), played into the McCain-Palin camp’s efforts to paint him as a misogynist a-hole. Now, this. What’s remarkable about this is how Obama’s campaign continues to shoot itself in the foot.
