Remember What This Is All About

Taylor Marsh is right on the money as usual. When the discussion shifts to the economy, Obama wins. When the election is about those kitchen table issues that we're all worrying about, it's easy for us to connect the dots & understand why we need real change.

That's what's scaring the GOP & the McCain campaign now. They can't seem to figure out what to do, so McCain erratically attacks Obama, the media, random government officials, and just about everyone other than himself. He condemns "the excesses of Wall Street" one day, then celebrates "the wonders of deregulation" the next. The GOP can't hide the disaster they don't know what to do, so they're in full panic mode.

Good. This is just where we need them. When the election's about stupid "personality" garbage, they win. But when the election's about the real issues we're facing, Democrats win.

That's why we can't take the bait, not any longer. No more "culture wars" crap. No more "can I have a beer with him?" nonsense. No more "what did he mean by lipstick on a pig?" BS.

We have the Rethuglicans right where we want them. Don't let them escape. Keep talking about the economic downturn, the health care mess, the failed Iraq occupation, the climate & energy crisis... And what Democrats will do to solve the problem. Connect the dots, and make victory happen.
