Listen, I don't want to defend this Republican, but we need to be consistent. What does the number of people in a state have to do with anything? Are you saying someone representing California (the most populous state) would be more qualified just because they come from a big state? That seems silly to me.
Again, if she is unprepared for the second slot Obama is unprepared for the first slot. This is a line of argument that Democrats need to avoid. Just stop it. Find another way to attack.
Ask yourself, would you have said that Kiane was unprepared? I doubt it. Fact is, Obama is the one that says experience doesn't matter. He proclaims that judgement matters. So, at least try to be consistent.
You really are a true believer. How about some critical thinking for a little change up instead of demigod worship?
Dude is in trouble. The convention snoozefest will not help much. The Republican snoozefest quickly follows anyway and there goes whatever bump he gets from convention. As for the VP slot...well, anything other Hillary Clinton will be yet another snoozefestival.
The "celebrity" ads have been devastating for Obama. The sooner Democrats wake up from the Obama stupor the better will be able to fight the Republicans. Here is a clue or two: Obama's greatness is not obvious to everyone. Some people actually need to be convinced. It is not enough that McCain sucks. Or that Obama is suppose to represent some sort of change (whatever that means).
I couldn't agree more with Penn. Sounds like a winning plan to me. Obama clearly didn't have any problem taking the low road with the Clintons (yet, he seems so hesitant to go after the Republicans...hmmm...) Again, Hillary is a much better person than I could ever be.
Make excuses for Obama all you want, but "acting the part" is not a winning strategy. If I'm sick of hearing Obama tell me how great he is and how important he is to the future of the world I can only imagine how the average non-partisan voter might take his enlarged head/ego.
And these ads work well because they cut through the noise and easily communicate their message.
And, btw, Josh Marshall is a tool. I lump him in the pile with Keith Olbermann and all the others who should be ashamed to call themselves Democrats.
