Here is a GREAT (and spooky) video of Obama cutting back on our military, interspersed with news items of China missle launches, chanting muslims, etc. VERY POWERFUL. It was on a FR thread earlier today.
The themes are those that some of us have always thought that McCain and the Republicans should have been talking about every day during the election.
Basic themes of national security.
This is easily doable along side the public’s “interest of the moment”.
But they left all this and went to themes where Obama and the Democrats hold the playing field and set the parameters.
