Making the case for Obama

Got this graphic from an Obama email in the last day or two. And sure, you could list other things that haven’t gone as well. The point is, it is very easy to make a case TO run on Obama’s record. If the Dems take a beating tomorrow as predicted, they have no one to blame but themselves. And if the Dems lose the senate you can honestly ask what difference it makes when some of their own senate candidates wouldn’t even admit they had voted for Obama.

They could have turned around the negatives if they had been on message and out there repeating these five points every single time they were in front of the media.

Kind of sad they have been so pathetic. Of course the media is more pathetic. They only report on the horse race. Have seen very limited media coverage of these points. Guess reporting facts would seem partisan, and they don’t want that.
Mainly, I think the whole country is glad that after tomorrow they can turn on the tv again without being inundated with political ads. And therein lies one of our big problems. All the ads do is make everyone want it to be over; they do little to involve voters with ideas or facts or make us want to vote for anyone. Okay, enough rant.

About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
