Bush Has Deserted Obama in His Hour of Need
Two paragraphs from a Wes Pruden piece in thr Washington Times about the Virginia governor race:
"This is one Mr. Deeds who apparently isn't going to town. The collapse of the Democratic campaign for governor of Virginia speaks volumes - chapters, anyway - about what the body politic is trying to tell Barack Obama's Democrats.
"They're learning, painfully, that campaigning without George W. Bush is baffling, frustrating and scary. Worse, it offers a preview of what the congressional campaigning will be like next year. One Obama doorbell ringer, working neighborhoods in Northern Virginia for Creigh Deeds, says even the promise of free pizza can't lure faithful Democrats to a rally."
I guess the real question is why doesn't Team Obama just blame Rush Limbaugh and Fox news for everything that has gone wrong in Virginia. Maybe they could also send out Emanuel, Axelrod and Dunn to the Sunday shows to implicate Sarah Palin and Joe the Plummer as well. I'm sure they'll get lots of ground and air support from George Stephanoupolis, Keith Olbermann and Katie Couric. No matter what they say or do, those guys will back them 98% of the time.
