Obama’s new campaign strategy

“I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

Well that’s refreshing, don’t you think? The comment section of this blog certainly shows that taking place. But it’s happening without any substance to the arguments. Many one-liners are hurled that can’t be backed when real discussion is suggested.

Take a look at a couple of Obama quotes from the stump:

“Sen. McCain bragged about how as chairman of the Commerce Committee in the Senate, he had oversight of every part of the economy. Well, all I can say to Sen. McCain is, ‘Nice job. Nice job.’ Where is he getting these lines? The lobbyists running his campaign?”

“The old boys network. In the McCain campaign that’s called a staff meeting. Come on.”

Sarcasm is an expression of hate. Sure, we all fall into it from time to time, but to make sarcasm the tone of a stump speech is probably a mistake. Many identify sarcasm as a trait attached to a practicing narcissist.

Will voters?

If you click that article you will see where Obama claims he doesn’t want to raise taxes. Higher taxes have always been on Obama’s platform. Did he not get it right or is he changing his tune again?

“If they tell you, ‘Well, he’s going to raise your taxes,’ you say, ‘No, he’s not, he’s going lower them.'”
