I do have to agree that the Obama campaign is being run in a piss poor fashion. You know it's bad when the old guy that hosts "Money Talk" on the
weekend makes it a point to bring this up (he did last weekend in his show, twice).
I even posted a few weeks ago about how I thought the McCain campaign lacked teeth. What's weird is during the primary runs, McCain seemed to be
pretty sharp and somewhat on top of things and now ... well, now his edge seems to have dulled a bit and I can't help but wonder what's going on and
if it would have been the same no matter which Republican got the nomination.
I have a couple of theories on his campaign's lack of substance:
* The Republicans are afraid to go all out and like in a normal election and just come out swinging for fear of being labeled racists. IMO, it
doesn't matter. I heard Laura Ingraham talking this morning about how the Democrats are now resorting to labeling some Republicans as racists.
* McCain's got the goods on Obama and is just biding his time until he unleashes this info on the public, most likely closer to election time.
* He's just not that good of a politician. I'll give you that he's not great, but he's not the one that's been promising to usher in a new era of
change and then waffling on those promises.
