So, Baraka Obama backs out of the NC Debate, robbing Katie Couric of her much desired suck-fest that would have been the CBS debate.
Hillary, if she really wants the nomination, needs to skewer Baraka on this. (Her last ad seems to hint at it.) Everyone knows Baraka’s last debate was an absolute disaster, and he wants to avoid any more embarrassing reveals of his lack of knowledge about, well, everything. Now he’s avoiding the press and any public forum to avoid any more performances that display his lack of experience and plethora of horrible managing ideas.
Hillary’s really experience a withering assault lately, and the fact that Obama’s been complaining about some of the treatment he’s been receiving, it really emphasizes that she’s been battered from left and right, and she’s still in it. She’s a tough woman– a shameless liar– but a tough woman, and if she’s going to garner any respect with the voters, she needs to emphasize this rugged resistance to assault and longevity. Perseverance in the face of adversity is a hallmark of American tradition, and voters flock to it.
Baracka blew it by backing out. All he’s doing is proving his critics right– he’s not good in the face of criticism. Now he’s passing on a chance to connect with voters in a debate, but he’s popping up on WWE to deliver one awful, canned message. (Kudos to McCain, though, who seemed to get in the moment.)
