McCain's time as POW meant a big zip when compared to Obama's vast record of stellar character and communication. Hey, I'm not an enthusiastic fan of McCain, but that's a tough sell even for me. I think the Obamatons might want to choose a different subject on which to attack McCain.
Michelle Malkin says:
And Barack Obama’s “executive responsibility” would be…what exactly? Oh, yeah. Conducting leadership training seminars for ACORN shakedown artists!The Anchoress notes this (read the whole thing):
The current president has shown he can take many punches. Can Obama handle one?Ann Althouse cites examples of Obama's leadership and wonders why Hillary didn't more effectively use this information. My short answer is that the campaigns were so non-stop and had a helter-skelter quality. And did Hillary fear that going after Obama's "experience" would expose her own stellar public service--health care pops to mind.
Oh, here’s an idea - let’s suggest that John McCain’s war record is irrelevant. That won’t make you look too hypocritical, will it, after you spent 2004 suggesting John Kerry’s turn in Vietnam defined his worthiness to sit in the Oval Office? Nah, of course not.
Don Surber notes Obama's leadership when it comes to women:
Democratic Sen. Barack Obama pays women staffers 87¢ for every $1 he pays his men.What about McCain's leadership? Well, the women on his staff make $1.04 for every $1.00 a man makes.
I laughed when Obama said: “Women still earn only 77¢ for every dollar earned by men.”
Where, I wondered, would that be?
Little did I know he was talking about his own Senate office.
Tom McGuire ponders Obama's lack of "cowering." Obama the he-man. He will. Not. Break.
If you listen to Barack Obama and his surrogates, he's the man of steel while McCain is a lily-livered guy with no record of public or military service. It's quite a trick to try to turn this around.
