The Obama Campaign is in Disarray By Jonah Goldberg
After running a brilliant and historic primary battle to defeat Hillary Clinton, the Obama campaign is now in disarray. Why?
Perhaps it's because Barack Obama has never run a competitive race against a Republican. After all, Obama won his U.S. Senate seat in Illinois by running against Alan Keyes, a fire-and-brimstone, right-wing black carpetbagger from Maryland (or perhaps Mars) who had no real ties to Illinois.
Now, facing John McCain's blistering ads, Obama seems unable to fight fire with fire. The Democratic rank and file are furious (while simultaneously denouncing McCain's negativity).
Obama, they may be realizing, doesn't know how to close the deal.
Nonetheless, the Obama campaign has vowed, once again, to take the gloves off and go after McCain hard, linking him to President Bush and highlighting the fact that the Arizona senator is out of touch.

“It’s very disheartening when all you hear is the MSM selling Obama, their guy, to everyone within earshot, and they are so BIASED it’s beyond belief.”
It WAS disheartening, until it became clear that MSM bias was actually driving voters to McCain. The best part is, the bias will only get worse as the election approaches! McCain/Palin in a landslide!
McCain/Palin ‘08! =:-D
Thanks for the clarification.
I’m in a KS suburb. Kansas is red but I was surprised that in a 24 hour time period I saw about 10 houses go from no signs in their yards to Obama signs stuck out front. Now, they are wasting their money since they don’t have a chance for Obamarama taking Kansas. At least, not yet.
I don’t know. One house, 2 doors down, was just sold and the new folks recently moved in. I’m in an older neighborhood where a lot of folks start out then move south to larger, newer homes. Many Obama supporters, I suspect, are youngins that don’t know better. I just hope they aren’t transplants - we don’t need anymore libs from the west and east coasts moving in. RINOs are taking over Kansas and it is not a good thing. I loved the signs the KS delegates had at the convention, “Keeping Kansas Red.”
Obama has never “won” a campaign - period.
His modus operandi is to litigate the opposition off the ballot.
He can’t do either with McCain. His team are street fighters, not national campaigners. They are not “presidential” at all, that’s why we hear these rabid claims from them that people are “liars” and “smear merchants” - you don’t hear that from McCain, do you?
It’s the punks v the professionals here, guess who is going to win.
The reason you don’t see many McCain signs is because people are a little worried about vandalism and retaliation from crazy libs and gangs. One alternative is to use “Women for McCain” sign as it tempers the effect (more respect for da women). I expect to see more signs as we get closer to November.
also and/or his annointment by the media, Ted Kennedy, etc., they didn’t want Billy and Hilly again...
Excellent idea - I thought leaving Los Angeles and moving home would allow me to have a sign, or even a bumper sticker, but not with all the angry, destructive libs around, even in my sleepy suburb. The only problem I have with a “Women For McCain” sign is that I don’t want anyone to think I was ever a Hillary fan, a feminist or voting for him just because he picked a woman for VP. LOL
Must be a small town in New Pennsylvania.
It should be dead in the water. I can’t believe I scrolled halfway down the page of threads and nothing about Obamas’ treasonous behavior in Iraq this summer. I have been watching the news on TV and nothing there either. The media is too busy asking Governer Palin gotcha questions. This is very dissappointing that Obama has managed to slip out of another very serious situation.
Yes...Kerry running on the platform of "I'm not Bush" worked so well...
Also reminds me of a line in Tombstone after Wyatt slaps Johnny Tyler around:
"Well, are you gonna do somethin' or just stand there and bleed?"
Team Obama is bleeding.
All the pundits on the talk shows are repeating this ad nausuem. They act like brainwashed puppets. No matter what they are asked they just repeat something stupid about McCain..... failed Bush policies....4 more years of Bush....blah blah.
“Obama, they may be realizing, doesn’t know how to close the deal.”
Kinda hard to close the deal when the “deal” you’re offering Americans is based on lies and deception.
I wouldn’t put a MCcain sign or any other conservative running candidate in my yard—I’d be egged-broken window etc. You know how rabid the left are! Never see bumper stickers for conservatives either -car would be keyed etc!! I’m still shocked over how many Obama signs I do see tho. People must not be very bright.
And why haven't McCain's people pressed on Obama's mystery college years? Where and who are his classmates?
The MSM wants to give Palin a colonoscopy over a state trooper while they try to slip Obama in through a side door and cover up his ties to radicals that hate America.
