Well, he’s a pretty dull tack right now.

Ever since Palin came onto the scene, they lost the news cycle. No one is going to care about that Forum tonight (though, once again, McCain looked like a man, Obama looked small in comparison).

The news will be about Palin’s interview and the storm tomorrow.

“We’re sensitive to the fluid dynamics of the campaign, but we have a game plan and a strategy,” said Mr. Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe. “We’re familiar with this. And I’m sure between now and Nov. 4 there will be another period of hand-wringing and bed-wetting. It comes with the territory.”

The ECONOMY is ALL about OIL... and their plan is LESS of it. See how easy it is to destroy that tack?

Perhaps he’ll bring out the Hollywood parade to berate McCain and Palin while cheering Obama. Of course that will backfire.

Tack is a sailing metaphor.

It will be very hard for him to take a sharper tack when Sarah has taken the wind from his sails.

McCain used finesse too, with playful humor. Then after the ‘pig’ attack, McCain socked him with the kindergarten ad. Smack.

As for The Obamessiah's sharper new tack, I hope he sits on it and deflates that ginormous ego of his that obviously resides in his derriere.

"Beyond that, Mr. Obama’s aides said they had also been taken aback by the newfound aggressiveness of the revamped McCain campaign under Steve Schmidt, who has played an increasingly powerful role since last summer. Even as the aides have denounced the tactics as unsavory, they acknowledge that Mr. McCain is running a more effective campaign than he was a month ago."

Morris is a smart guy. But I think he’s wrong.

“Dick Morris believes BO will win the election because the economy will be the major issue that is scaring the swing voters.”

Here’s the problem with that — we have managed to focus attention on how gas prices affect the economy. This is the first time since the Great Depression that people are not blaming the president for their economic problems.

Yes, prices have been sliding down. But now we’re having OPEC slashing production [although the Saudis are rebelling], we have Venesuala increasing tensions, and now this Hurricane. Looks like we’ll have another jolt. I suspec that speculators will pile on too.

Obama, I’ve heard somewhere you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig

I have a sharper tack

"Cocaine is a powerfully addictive central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. It has extremely potent euphoric effects, and individuals who take cocaine can develop an addiction to cocaine after using the drug for a very short period of time."

Mr. Obama. You are a self-admitted cocaine user. It is possible you became addicted. Are you addicted to cocaine? What proof can you provide that you are not addicted? Do you believe the people of the world should expect that the people of The United States take care about in whom they entrust the power to use nucear weapons? Why should we trust the word of a possible cocaine addict? Finally, can we expect to see you soon on celebrity rehab.

Something’s going on.

I think Obama’s just trying to figure out why he’s falling in the polls.

First he’ll take Michelle out of the equation to see if it’s her.

Little does he know it’s HIM!

“So the answer is forced upon him . . . he’ll have to move back leftward and fire cannons to generate money.”

Makes sense.

“Don’t help him. Keep all talk of McCain and Palin about moderate centrist topics like corruption reform and energy. Minimize talk of abortion and religion.”

Abortion is a loser for the left this year. BO and Pelosi have skuttled the left on that. Religion has been a losing issue for the left for a long time. 60% of the country is conservative. That’s why Sarah is building so much support.

Who came up with the term “Community Organizer”

It’s sinking his campaign.

When people hear community organizer they think Al Sharpton.

I am absolutely CONVINCED that McCain was playing rope-a-dope with that earlier campaign official who said he would not campaign against Obama.

I don't know how good of a pilot McCain was, but he's a hell of a tactician.

To do list for Obama...

1. Organize the community.

2. UH, UH, UH, UH, UH.

3. Say, Enough! Then say Enough again and again.

4. Have Michelle go look for Biden.

5. Call Reverend Wright for advice.

My opinion, B. Clinton gave Obama some general advice he could get from anyone and Clinton said he’d campaign for him if he needed his help. Meanwhile, the Clintons are really gearing to undercut him from behind the scenes and situp for 2012.

fta: "Mr. Obama and his campaign have seemed flummoxed in trying to figure out how to deal with her. His aides said they were looking to the news media to debunk the image of her as a blue-collar reformer, even as they argued that her power to help Mr. McCain was overstated."

YES!! They are going to rely on the media to attack Palin. And then a little bit of their hypocritical downplaying at the end.

Don't lose focus now men, full steam ahead...

LOL. A great cartoon would should McCain and Palin passing Obama/Biden’s sailboat. McCain/Palin would be in a fast, beautiful “America’s Cup” style boat while Obama/Biden would be in a smaller dingier boat with holes in the sagging sails and Biden and Obama both desperately bailing water to try to keep their sailboat afloat!!
