I will have to be careful where I wear my NObama ‘08 cap:
In Elko, Obama . . . called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.
“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” he said.
“And if they tell you . . . ‘Well, we’re not sure where he stands on guns.’ I want you to say, ‘He believes in the Second Amendment.’ If they tell you, ‘Well, he’s going to raise your taxes,’ you say, ‘No, he’s not, he’s going lower them.’ You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case.”
Like the 20–something waitress addressing the sixty-something diners: “What would you guys like?”
He talks that way. He began his session with the Chi Trib board of examiners in March with a “you guys.”
Are we heading for another four or eight years when no grownups are allowed in the White House, as in ‘92 to ‘00? In my face indeed. Listen, kid . . .
