Time For Barack To Go Street

Dear Barack,

I can’t take it anymore.  I don’t know if I want to wring McCain’s neck for what he says, or wring yours for what you don’t.  It’s like I want to crawl through the TV screen, if I wasn’t listening on radio. 

I say, enough with the civility. Enough with the excessive respect. Enough with polite indifference to McCain’s attacks.

When McCain dropped the “Cut everything but defense and veteran’s benefits,” and you said “You’re using a hatchet where you need a scalpel. ” That wasn’t bad, but how good would it have been if you would’ve punctuated it with, “John, you are making this thing wa-a-ay too easy.”

This isn’t about winning the vote of the debate judges.  You’re trying to win the vote of the man on the street And if you want to get the vote of the man on the street, you have to go  street.  Don’t worry. He can take it. He’s a war hero, remember?

In that vein, I’ve got a few suggestions for you to throw in during the next debate.

“Hey John I’m over here. Whatsamatter, ‘fraid to look at me?

“John, you’ve mentioned “without preconditions” five times in the last thirty seconds. How about as a present for the next debate I get you a thesaurus.”

(First spit out water you’re drinking, then:)  ”I’m sorry. I thought you just said that you support veterans.”

“Yeah, you support veteran benefits. Sure ya do…EXCEPT for the 29 times you voted against them.”

“Are you serious? You must really think I’m an idiot.”

“Nice choice for VP.  How’s that for straight talk?”

“And another thing. You have an 80 percent disapproval rating by every veterans group in the country. Don’t believe me? Google it…when you learn how to use a computer.”

“Nice answer…if the voters were brain dead.”

“I’d be bitter too if I had to ask my wife for money all the time.”

“Um.  I’m just throwin’ this out, but it seems to me that repeating “The fact of the matter”, require the use of actual facts?”
