The Right Message

Barack Obama continues his lead in the polls as we are now eight days from November 4th. While Senator McCain has new momentum with his "Joe the plumber" advertisements, he continues to come up short with some key demographics.

But McCain has touched on a nerve here. Barack's slip up of "redistributing the wealth" has concerned many voters and in most polls, the number of undecideds has actually increased in recent days. John McCain needs to stay on this very important message for the duration of this campaign.

An interview Barack Obama gave in law school has just been uncovered and it possesses this same type of troubling, socialist message. While asked why he was concentrating so heavily on city issues, specifically the inner city, he replied “I’m not interested in the suburbs. The suburbs bore me.”

The comments this man has made about most of America should have fueled outrage but through the filter of the media, he is left unscathed.

But to recap for everyone, this is a man who does not identify with small town America because they "cling to guns and religion" while at the same time labeling life in Suburbia as "boring".

It will be difficult however for the Maverick to get a word in edgewise, especially as Obama prepares his thirty minute pitch to voters Wednesday night which will be simulcast on the broadcast networks.

The GOP had a successful attack this summer in painting Obama as someone completely full of himself. They would run ads of Obama speaking to throngs of eager supporters in Berlin and delivering his acceptance speech in a massive stadium while standing upon a temple-like structure.

For reasons unbeknownst to me, they dropped this line of attack. But a thirty minute infomercial on Obama just might spark up that debate again.

McCain has made a career out of come from behind victories. Let's pray he has one more left in him.
