I think the left leaning blogosphere just got punked.
Advertisements [?]
1. POTUS/VPOTUS call out the "whiners"

2. those who THINK they are the subject of the remarks start ... well ... whining

3. Obama draws record crowd of young, enthusiastic, fired up voters

4. left leaning blogsphere look foolish and out of touch. "See these young voters? They're not listening to you ... they're listening to ME!"

You can mockingly call it 3d chess if you like, but it's what he does ... did it to the Clintons (compared Bill to Reagan, got them irate and caused them to overreact) and he did it to McCain (too many times to count.) I suspect he will KEEP doing it to anyone who gets in his way.... except, of course Ben Nelson. :)

President Barack Obama shakes hands after speaking at a rally Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2010, on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wis.
