Obama needs to start talking about the cost of the war. Two Trillion
I don't think Obama needs to go negative yet as we have seen he continues to win. He needs to bring the dialog back to his strong point which is getting us out of Iraq and his being against the war from the beginning. With violence down he needs to turn the dialog to the huge cost of this war, now projected to be Two Trillion. When I hear that number I become enraged! Not to mention people are still dying and Iraq is not getting any better.

When she attacks on stupid things he needs to just say "Our kids are still dying over in Iraq while she throws the Kitchen Sink at me. A War that has now cost us at least Two Trillion dollars."

1. I know our death count is lower than it has been but the Iraqis still
suffer many deaths....so I think he ought to add that to the discussion too. You bring up an important point. K&R

2. Exactly, since the cost of the war helps bankrupt us
stateside... no money for domestic issues.

All the policy proposals mean nothing if there is no money here because it's all going over there!
