Obama Opens Can of Whoop Ass on McCain

Hoo Yah!

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is entering the third and final presidential debate Wednesday with a wide lead over Republican rival John McCain nationally, a new CBS News/New York Times poll shows.

The Obama-Biden ticket now leads the McCain-Palin ticket 53 percent to 39 percent among likely voters, a 14-point margin. One week ago, prior to the Town Hall debate that uncommitted voters saw as a win for Obama, that margin was just three points.

Among independents who are likely voters - a group that has swung back and forth between McCain and Obama over the course of the campaign - the Democratic ticket now leads by 18 points. McCain led among independents last week.

McCain's campaign strategy may be hurting hurt him: Twenty-one percent of voters say their opinion of the Republican has changed for the worse in the last few weeks. The top two reasons cited for the change of heart are McCain's attacks on Obama and his choice of Sarah Palin as running mate.

Yep. Both reasons are 100% John McCain - nobody "did it " to him.

John McCain exercised poor choices and is now paying a big price for it. It would have been much wiser for McCain to have dropped Palin before she stepped up on stage at the convention and accepted the nomination, as I suggested at the time.

It was clear from the start that Palin was poorly vetted, and poorly qualified for the position. Aside from 10 day bounce Palin gave the GOP ticket coming out of the convention it's been a steady, downhill slide in the polls as more and more was learned about Palin's intelligence and more information came to light.

But McCain's stunt of "suspending his campaign" was the second greatest mistake. What a bonehead move that was. The poor old fart can't multi-task. Heck, I have trouble multi-tasking at times, but then I'm not pretending to be qualified for the presidency as McCain is.

And interestingly enough, these two monumental mistakes were the high points of the last 45 days for the GOP hard-core base. They LOVED the choice of Palin and they CHEERED McCain's campaign suspension stunt, claiming both demonstrated the superior leadership abilities of John McCain.

Hork! Check those polls number and get back to us, GOPers... your days are numbered.

Lee, are you forgetting the GOP voter caging, and the electric voting machines that are crooked?

Yes, Obama is, if you can believe the polls, way ahead, but don't forget the above paragraph. And the more good old winker Barby doll is being looked into, she should scare the crap out of all of us.

However, the die hard GOP, and the religious Reich wont admit that. Look at the terrorist church she belongs to, and that should, but won't tell any person what to expect from her.
