Don't Worry About Obama's Brand For God's Sake!

If there were an Urgent button on HuffPost I would use it for this post.

Obama's undercutting his brand is he? He's moving to the center?

DUH!

Don't get me wrong. Attack him from the left. That's a good thing. The more MoveOn whacks him, the harder it will be for the Right to make the radical/liberal label stick to him. That's a good thing.

But let none of us be naïve in our hearts. Let none of us be dismayed by the moves he has to make. Barack knows what he's doing, his people know what they're doing, this is all very carefully calibrated.

C'mon everybody, wake up! We gotta win this thing. We are supposed to be ones who get it. All of us who made this happen need to accept what winning entails. This is a BLACK MAN who is daily being tarred and feathered as a Muslim Leftist Radical Marxist Elitist. And that will go on and on and on.

What country are you living in? Don't you understand the power of that slander? Get serious. Grow up. Let's win this thing -- then we hold him accountable.

If Barack moving to the middle is really giving you second thoughts then you are indistinguishable from fanatical Hillary supporters who are willing to sit out the election or even vote for McCain -- and the hell with overturning Roe v Wade and all the rest.

Please. We are so close now. Let's not blow it. Again.
