Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

It’s Biden (Officially Official)


Everyone is breaking it now. It should be noted that the Obama camp has not sent out the text, and this is not confirmed by anyone in the Obama camp. That nothwithstanding, it’s odd that they didn’t just send out the text, as they must have had a feeling that the dam was about to burst. Assuming they haven’t done a massive head-fake here, of course. For the record, I’m pretty happy with this pick. Biden should be able to take McCain and the GOP apart. As proof, I present the following:

Let’s go get ’em.

Update: Wow, Chuck Todd is reporting that Dick Lugar (R-IN) recommended Biden to Obama. Obama has a lot of affection for Lugar, with good reason.

Update: Per the banner above, the announcement is confirmed by the Obama campaign. No texts though?

Update: Looks like the texts are now going out in earnest, at right about 3:00am eastern. Boy, the media won’t play *that* up, will they…

  2. How funny would it be if we get a text message and it’s a name other than Biden?

  3. And so it begins….. Go Obama Team FIGHT!!!!!!
    We have to get behind both these men with NO hesitation or regrets. We will not get a second chance.
    The Repugs have learned to act in lockstep to get their guys elected. It’s worked for them time and time again. We can’t let that happen again.
    We must now learn to do the lockstep better, faster and without compromising our ideals.
    We MUST take the fight to them and not let up until we have prevailed.
    Feel the hope tonight. Believe that change will come and never, ever let that belief falter. Together we can do this.
    Go Barack! Go Joe! Let’s get these bastards and send them straight back to oblivion!

  4. The GOP are going to try to pin this as ridiculous due to Biden’s past commentary during the debates in regards to Barack’s readiness to be President.

    I feel this is going to perfectly play into Obama08’s counter attacks and VP message control. In that, just like the average (nightly news) voter out there is questioning whether or not Barack will be ready from day one; Biden will be stumping with sound bite after sound bite, not the least of which will be mention of how he has no doubt in his mind that Barack is ready to be President.

    Obama/Biden 08!!!

  5. Obama,

    You are the first candidate the U.S. has had in a long time that has continued to spread false information from the first time you hit the campaign trail.

    I find your technique one of the most offensive I have ever experienced. I find your ethics are on the border of being unethical and your manipulation of the facts most disgusting.

    It is common knowledge that the media will always press United States citizens to vote for the candidate who offers them the biggest kick-backs, pay-backs, and over-all “favors”. That is you, Obama.

    Then look at your over all personas: Your stance, the way you hold your head, your gestures, the clothes you wear, the pronouns and adjectives you use. Everything about you is the personification of an individual, who does NOT, let me repeat DOES NOT, have the United States citizens interests’ at heart. You are an elitist and the persona I just described is living proof — your entire appearance is proof — FACT — of what I say.

    Okay – now let’s talk about education. You have a law degree but did not practice law. Why? Readers – look this one up and you will see why. And, the result is not a positive one.

    Then there is the community organizer work you undertook in the state of Illinois. That, too, has been overstated and turned into something “positive” that it in fact was NOT. Dear readers – check this one out yourself as there are many Illinois citizens who will tell you the “truth.”

    My education – NOBAMA – is equal to or greater than your education. I do have the same ability as you to influence U.S. Citizens: And I certainly am taking the opportunity to exploit you for what you truly are.

    You see I am an educator, who works for a famous “Research One” institution, who has the ability to write Journal Articles that all college students will use for research. The true facts about you will come out and in a place that will most definitely do the most good – to influence voters “young voters” on how to spot an individual who does not represent the United States in the capacity as he states he will. Make no mistake, Obama, people will definitely know the subject of the Journal Articles is referencing you and your 2008 Presidential campaign.

    See you in “honest” fact-finding print.
