"We’re going to get a little tougher," a senior Republican operative said, indicating that a fresh batch of television ads is coming. "We’ve got to question this guy’s associations. Very soon. There’s no question that we have to change the subject here," said the operative, who was not authorized to discuss strategy and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Right on cue, Sarah Palin said yesterday that Obama pals around with terorrists.
And then this morning on "Face the Nation," Heather Wilson charged that Obama is unpatriotic, that he’s a blame-America-firster — and that he trashed America overseas.
Nevermind that Obama’s speeches in Europe were objectively unabashedly pro-America. And forget Wilson’s assclownish notion that our nation’s popularity is directly related to how loudly our President screams "USA!" in foreign countries.
But I don’t recall Wilson complaing when George Bush broke the "no politics overseas " rule in Israel, when he accused Obama and the Democratic Party of being modern day Chamberlains as the
Nazis Iranians gear up for Holocaust II.
Expect a lot more of this over the next four weeks. It’s all they have left.
