Let's face it, we're seeing just how much of a boat anchor Bush has become to his party. His inability to articulate a positive vision was put in perspective by moderate Republican Tom Davis in the article:
"When Bush tries to articulate a vision," Davis said, pausing to choose his words carefully, "he will butcher the Gettysburg Address. Obama, he will make an A&P grocery list sing."That of course has no bearing on the substance of either man, and as we've seen, there's some wind blowing around inside Barack's suit. But perception is reality in politics.
I agree with Tom Davis that the GOP should take a lesson from these losses and stop the shallow attacks against Obama and try running on their own vision and beliefs, if they have any. Is that too much to ask?
Meanwhile, some of the radio commercials for Travis Childers are hilarious in their stereotypical portrayal of Childers as a good ole boy in line with conservative Mississippi values and such. Funny, the Childers people bristle at the notion of the GOP trying to link him to Obama (even though he showed up on Barack's web site) but he doesn't seem at all eager to link himself to Nancy Pelosi, who's shown us nothing but investigations since taking power while doing nothing to get out of Iraq or stop rising gas prices, as was promised. And who wouldn't want more of that success?
