"Beat the rookie with the Veteran"

Friday, July 25, 2008

Actual, you know, voters reaction to the SPEECH in Germany...

This election will be won in places like Columbus and Cincinnati... Grand Rapids and Denver. Not Paris and Berlin. The radio in Ohio provides some detail:

Judging from the local drive time radio shows, we bitter, religious pistol-packers here in flyover country remembered only two things from Obama's Berlin visit: the phrase "citizen of the world" and Obama's failure to visit wounded troops at Landstuhl and Ramstein.

This morning the radio fairly crackled with callers incensed at what they perceive as Obama's snub of American warriors while ingratiating himself with people who refuse to send any combat troops to Afghanistan. This was not conservative radio but your typical morning traffic and weather blowtorch. And it was in the bluest part of the state (although callers come from much of northern Ohio).
