Obama: "We dont buy our own hype."
Edited on Sat Jul-26-08 03:36 PM by TeamJordan23
We dont buy our own hype, Mr. Obama said. Were always looking around the corner."

How do I avoid looking presumptuous? Mr. Obama said in the interview. Im very much looking forward over the next three months to going back to Iowa, literally and figuratively, and spending a lot of time in town hall meetings, talking to voters and listening to voters.


GUYS, LOOKS LIKE HE IS GETTING READY FOR A TOUGH THREE MONTHS OF FIGHTING AND CAMPAIGNING FOR OUR VICTORY.

I'M FIRED UP!

2. "Flying too close to the sun."
That phrase struck me. Imagine having a president literate enough to casually toss-off a reference like that without needing a writer to dredge it up for him. Not that it is THAT brilliant; that's just how low the bar has fallen, that it seemed impressive to me. If Obama messes up royally, it will be worth voting for him just to be able to listen to a president whose every utterance isn't an embarrasment.

I have a friend who is an airspace coordinator for the Forest Service. Bush recently met her at the CA fires, shook her hand and said: "Thanks fer all the...er, uh...coordinatin'."

Sigh.

8. Let me submit that
we must have some pretty low standards if it's a big deal for a grown man (or woman) to be able to reference Greek Mythology from time to time.
One would hope our leaders were literate enough.

Not to cut you down, just saying.......

5. I received an e-mail from the director on the MI Obama...
campaign concerning what's going on in the state over the next couple of months. Folks, we are so going to kick McCain's ass in November.

6. This is why we can relax a little
Obama and his team know EXACTLY what they are doing. They know how to assess risks and benefits, and I think we can also rest assured that the "presumptuousness" of the trip will be over in a week. As Obama said, people will have in the back of their mind that he is more than capable on foreign policy.
