Obama's Starting to Attack

Obama's been trying to be so nice, barely raising his hands to defend the punches leveled at him. But here's evidence that he's been playing the rope a dope - allowing himself to get roughed up in order to affect the narrative. He's run a stunningly positive, issues oriented campaign so far, and McCain has run a scurrilously negative one. That narrative has been so firmly established that even McCain's base in the press is leaving him because of his negativity.

But now that the time is ripening, he's accumulated a significant quiver of McCain's screw ups and he's beating down. He's calling attacks against him lies on top of it. More like this, please.
