The shining light: Obama negatives on par with Hillary; greater than McCain's

Conservatives have been fretting long enough over an Obama nomination, and now Rasmussen gives them the inside track on his bad numbers:

Thirty-four percent (34%) of all voters say they will definitely vote for John McCain if he is on the ballot this November. Thirty-three percent (33%) will definitely vote against him while 29% say their support hinges on who his opponent is.

Barack Obama has the same number who will definitely vote for him--34%. But, more people are committed to voting against him than McCain. Forty-three percent (43%) say they will definitely reject him at the ballot box. For 18%, their support depends on his opponent.

For Hillary Clinton, 32% will definitely vote for her if she is on the ballot and 46% will definitely vote against. Core opposition to Clinton, the best-known of the candidates as the long campaign season began, hovered in the high 40s through most of the past year.

See? For crying out loud, quit worrying about the man of "hope" and "change." The right strategy will derail his candidacy. He's inexperienced. He's weak on national security, as he advocates for a troop withdrawal from Iraq. He's weak on the economy, pushing for higher taxes, and more Congressional spending. He's totally unreliable on the issue of federal judges to the bench, especially the high court. His idea of foreign relations is negotiating directly with our enemies, and kissing up to our so-called allies.

It's time to stop worrying about Obama, and come out against him. Unload. BE SENSIBLE. Don't bring up things not true, such as his supposed Muslim heritage. Don't bring up his race. These two "issues" are utterly irrelevant to this election. The focus is the man, and what he stands for. It ain't democracy. It's more of the same old schtick pushed by liberals over the last sixty-plus years.

His negatives show that he's weak with the general populace. That means they have the same opinion most of us have:

"Yes, you talk of change and hope, yet you lack specificity on your rhetoric. SHOW us. TELL us what you mean. Let America decide on specifics, not empty suited rhetoric."

As yet, we haven't gotten that. We've gotten platitudes which have no merit in our lives. We have problems. We have issues to be addressed (and I'm not talking "mental issues.") We have a war we're in, and economy that isn't doing hot, the prospect of six Supreme Court justices retiring over the course of the next eight years, and an rampant illegal alien problem.

What are you going to do for us, Barack? And I don't mean what will the nanny-state do for us. What will YOU do? You haven't been specific because you lack the experience to be that way. This is why you're failing, and why you'll continue to fail. Beating Hillary is nothing. A chimp with two brain cells, beating a slide rule on a banana could do the same thing.
