I wonder if Biden has made McCain re-think his VP choice.
Whoever it may be.
Interesting article. Funny thing is,in the very beginning I liked Obama. But after months of the endless "Obama" media worship, and BLATANT media prop ups helping him to win the primaryand now the general (unless something drastic happens at the convention), I started actually liking Hillary and McCain better (and I don't like them that much either). This quote makes since to me...
"Increasing numbers of those voters are also (again according to polls) saying they are bored with the relentless coverage of Mr Obama and would like to hear more about Mr McCain. "
If this dufas can't even pull way ahead with all of the Media adoration he gets,he is in for a rude awakening. Even FOX had a reporter on last night with his undies in a twist defending BO's choice for Biden as VP. Major Garrett read the riot act to Sheperd Smith when he (Shepard) thought it may have been a choice made because he had to,rather than he wanted to.
The Media is not helping him any longer...it's probably hurting him actually.
Since the narrative of "elitism" has been introduced into the campaign by republicans, and since the economy, gas prices, and housing is the number one issue now, voters may be sensitive to politicians who are percieved as being out of touch. That's what sunk Poppy Bush's campaign in 1992.
Now that the Dems have two dudes who are from working middle class backgrounds, both of whom are not millionaires, and have very modest wealth by Senate standards, if McCain picks Romney, the GOP will have two extremely rich multimillionaire dudes who can't remember how many houses they have, or how many cars they own.
Two dudes from working middle class backgrounds? What color is YOUR sky? Both are professional politicans, pulling in 6 figures plus all the Congressional perks, who presume to think for and know what's best for everyone else, regardless the collective opinions of the people they are supposed to represent.
Obama has already made elitist statements, and he's dumber'n dirt on energy. If they swap positions, I would consider voting for Biden.
