Is it just me, or does anyone else smell the flopsweat on the other side of the aisle? And I’m not just talking about the current Todd Akin fiasco, either. I’m talking about the utter lack of a positive message from the right. I’m talking about the complete failure of the Rmoney campaign to come up with a coherent talking point on the candidate’s taxes. I’m talking about the swiftboat operation that just sank. I’m talking about John Sununu melting down on Soledad O’Brien on CNN.
These are all great things to see. I have a lot of optimism for the upcoming election, and I think that Obama is in a good place, and the Senate looks a little more secure. I’m not as sanguine about the House, but I don’t think the Republicans are going to hold on to all their gains from 2010.
That said, we’re facing the biggest cash deficit an incumbent President has ever faced in US history, and an opposition party that has no hesitation with playing any card they can think of to win, regardless of the consequences for the country.
You know what to do.
