    Sorry McCain supporters, you die hard Bushbots, you, but Obama is ready to kick some ass!

    Obama Tells Allies He Is Ready to Hit Back - washingtonpost.com


    ALBUQUERQUE, Aug. 18 -- Sen. Barack Obama returned to the presidential campaign trail on Monday after a week-long Hawaiian vacation and tried to assure anxious Democrats that he is ready to fight back against Republican character attacks that grew sharper in his absence.

    At a town hall meeting here, Obama slammed Sen. John McCain for continuing the politics and policies of President Bush, part of an attempt to tether the presumptive Republican nominee to the unpopular president. In recent days, the campaign and its supporters have also begun portraying the wealthy McCain as too out of touch to represent the common man.

    Late last week, the campaign dismissed the rising concerns of Democrats as arm-chair quarterbacking with little understanding of Obama's strategy. By Monday, not even the candidate could let such concerns slide.

    "Everywhere I go, people have told me, 'I'm getting nervous. The Republicans, they're so mean. They're going to Swift-boat you. They're doing things to you. What are you going to do?' " Obama said. "I have to just remind people that it is true that, just as John McCain has embraced George Bush's policies, he's embraced his politics. And the same people who brought you George Bush are now trying to package John McCain."

    ripped me all to shreds---He's only been comparing McCain to Bush since he started campaigning. Is this one of his new and innovative ideas ?

    I thought anxious Democrats wanted him to define his policies since change wasn't exactly an issue.

    So, this is how he defines his policies? He's not Bush? That will not convince anyone.

    He needs to stick to that message, no matter what else he does. It got him in the lead and it will carry him to victory
