  •  This is what strategy looks like. (15+ / 0-)

    We all know the Karl Rove method- turn your opponent's greatest strength into a weakness, and then divide and conquer.

    We're seeing a new strategy emerge here. As long as Obama keeps offering substance in all of the campaign's response ads and statement, suddenly Obama becomes the candidate of substance and McCain becomes the candidate of hype and frivolity.

    They're going to turn Obama's "weakness" into McCain's weakness and then they're going to unite and conquer.

    The media is already turning on McCain. He's already starting to lose his varnish. As long as he keeps offering nothing but negative ads, and as long as Obama offers nothing but substance, the narrative will shift. You watch.
