Lol...He's taking credit for the surge? Now that's news! Have you notified the press? This could help your candidate immensely!

Senator Obama should talk about the economy. I know you've seen it in your zest to post the latest polls - the Economy is by far Issue #1.

Consider this - if Senator McCain's strategy is to show the citizens what "would have happened" he takes time away from discussing "what can and should be happening". How does that make him look relevant to the issue of Today?
Pointing out the horrible judgement of a potential CIC is always worth probing. The economy may be the number one issue, but national security/Iraq/Terrorism is right behind.

You're right though. As long as obama keeps talking about those things he plays right into McCain's strength, as the polls also show.

That ABC poll that came out showing only 48% think obama would be effective CIC against McCains 72% has the campaign very worried.

They know they have to bolster his foreign policy credentials, however, his 1st trip to Afghanistan and 2nd to Iraq will hardly do that, along with some nice photo-ops.

The economy message is on the back burner right now for Obama - maybe he should hire some more advisors to supplement the 300+ FP he already has.

Is any idea coming from his mouth his own?

Iraq ranks fourth or fifth in most polls.

Then why is obama so desperate to grasp for any break, no matter how insignificant?
