Obama's Strategy, "They Can't Say That"

We thought Obama was kidding, when he said that he would not allow the opposition to question his patriotism as his tactic for being strong in a General Election. WHAT? They just did and that's all he could come back with?
Many thought that was a one time dodge, because he was licking his wounds still from the Reverend Wright issue, then Tim Russert also brought up his wife, Michelle Obama's comments and the issue of him not wearing the Flag Pin (which we know he now is again).
But today we learned he did it again. Senator McCain quickly denounced contraversial statements made by Pastors that endorsed him for the Presidential nomination and rejected their endorsement. Much quicker and decisive than a prolonged episode Senator Obama entertained. When they tried to compare Senator Obama's Pastor, Reverend Wright, to the contraversial statements of the Pastor's who endorsed him, Senator McCain, he responded that receiving the endorsement of these Pastors was not the same as having a 20 year relationship with the Pastor and havin him as a Spiritual Advisor. Senator Obama's response to John McCain statment was "For McCain to suggest that a single statement made by somebody can some how be attributed to me is wrong". But, he just did and gave a reason why and that was the response Senator Obama gives?
This does seem to be his terrifying pattern of response to the Right Wings challenges and it isn't very reassuring for his reply to be, they can't say that.
