Man maybe I should speak for myself, but screw the speechfiying, the thing about Obama is that he just isn't afraid. Peep how he responds to Tapper's question on Republican questions on patriotism:

As far as the American flag pin, I mean when we start getting into those definitions of patriotism that’s a debate I’m happy to have, because I will come right after them. This is a party that presided over a war in which our troops did not get the body armor that they needed, or sending troops over who were untrained because of poor planning, or are not fulfilling the veterans benefits that these troops need when they come home, or undermining our constitution with warrantless wiretaps that are unnecessary

I WILL COME RIGHT AFTER THEM. Not I'm going to triangulate them, not I'm going to capitulate, not I'm going to try look tough in the general. I love that. The whackest thing about the Clintons was how they just would fold before the conservatives in an attempt to look tough. Everytime I see Hillary I think of that old great Churchill quote--"You accepted shame to avoid war, now you have both." Since these jokers came on the scene, their whole campaign has wreaked of political cowardice. I can't wait for the dagger.
