I've said it before: Get mad!

Why Obama has to confront McCain

There is a time and a place for being the nice guy – Obama, as most know is that nice guy. He is fighting a clean, respectful campaign, and his focus isn’t where it should be.

I agree with James Carville:

And my last piece of advice to Obama and his team is to just get mad about something. Obama’s campaign seems so intent on branding him as a “cool and calm” leader.

That’s what I said in the primary when he was fighting Clinton – and Obama has to get mad again, but this time he has a lot of things to get mad at.

Look – McCain is pandering his rose-coloured POW status because he knows that Obama won’t pick on that, the Obama camp think it would be political suicide, OK, well don’t. He was a POW not a war hero.

Go for McCain where is really should hurt – he left a disfigured wife, not a matter of leaving her after a stressful relationship caring for her – he left her for a “hot” multi-millionairess. One that was adulterous with him. Too low?

Keep, then, going after his economic policy – of which he states, blatantly in the face of the American people (because McCain thinks the American people are stupid). There is so many places where Obama can get mad at – but he hasn’t.

If you want to show the American people you have the balls for a fight – fight, they will love you for it. Dig him on the debates, goad McCain into a temper tantrum, get him going – make McCain mad, that will show the American people how unstable McCain really is.

Just get mad and show you can fight toe-to-toe.

    Just like clockwork every four years, the Democrats find their presidential candidate plunging in the polls due to their own ineptness and they begin whining and crying that the GOP candidate is attacking too harshly. What a joke!

    U.S. President Harry S. Truman summed it up best when he said, “If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.”

    P.S. James Carville is a paid-political-pinhead. Period.

    Good analysis, Will! 😉

    You know what, pal? You gave me a brilliant idea: My campaign will now show the American people that my opponent Hussein Obama is not only black but also a muslim with a taliban hat who is responsible for the high gas prices, excessive taxes and the recession.
    Thank you for your support.

    I’m pretty sure that the American people will open their eyes when I’ll tell them.

    But John – you just used that in an attack ad, can’t you remember? Or is age getting to you? 😉

    I think — I’ll have my staff get to you. I’ll have them get to you. As president I can’t think of every small unimportant things.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
