We can't control the chattering points of corporate newz, but we can point out that McBush is the one with the base problem, as evidenced by his 6 week smear campaign. If he was going after independents those ads would have been positive about himself. But since he is so disliked and distrusted by so many of his own party, he must try to demonize Obama in order to stop their defections.
It's the old, "You may not like me, but the other guy is worse," tactic. And it's the tactic for candidates who know they're losing.
there are a couple million Dems who aren't quite ready to get behind Obama.
Whatever the actual number, there are always those who don't vote for the candidate of their party. I don't know what McBush's number is either in that regard, but his smear camapign of the past 6 weeks has been directed at his own shakey base.
It's fine to work to secure Obama's base, but remember at the same time that many GOPs don't like or trust McFlip and will either sit it out or defect to Obama if his smear/fear campaign doesn't take.
They dug up another crank too who said she wouldn't vote for Obama if she wasn't treated with the proper respect, which she said meant a complete roll call vote, even though Hillary herself supports calling it off at some point. When asked if she'd vote for McBush instead of Obama she began to stutter.
Hopefully Hillary's speech had the same effect on her as it has on the few others of similar sentiment.
