Barack Obama held a fund raiser this weekend in California, where he told a crowd of about 1,300 supporters, “I will win. Don’t worry about that.” And people say he’s arrogant . . . Although, before he starts measuring for curtains in the Oval Office, Obama might want to just take a quick look at the polls. The fact is, he is currently behind where John Kerry was in 2004 at this same time (as far as national tracking polls go). McCain has regained the lead in several of the latest OH, CO, FL and NV polls. He is also well within the margin of error in MI, WI and PA. So, before you start celebrating and cementing your image as someone who is arrogant and elitist, you probably want to maintain your campaigning and not take any more Hawaiian vacations before October. Oh yeah, keep wasting spending money in states like Georgia and Indiana, of course they will be competitive on election day.

Obama reportedly also said at the same fund-raiser:

Now, you want to win. And saying it doesn’t make it so. It would be nice to think that after eight years of economic disaster, after eight years of bungled foreign policy, of being engaged in a war that should never have been authorized and should never have been waged, that cost us a trillion dollars and thousands of lives, that people would say, let’s toss the bums out. Toss the bums out, we’re starting from scratch, we’re starting over. This is not working.

So why is it that despite the recognition that the Democrats should be running away with this thing they are not? Well, perhaps it is because most Americans don’t believe the spin you place on events, especially the “economic disaster” part. Perhaps the reason things are not going well is because the far left has taken control of your party and nominated someone with two years of federal experience and 0 years of executive experience. Someone who, until very recently, was a “community organizer.” The real shame is that the Democrats set up this jerry-rigged nomination process to include the so-called “Super Delegates” so they could insulate themselves from choosing terrible candidates (mostly in reaction to the McGovern nomination who was ramrodded through by the activist left part of the party). Despite this, you decided not to play your get out of jail free card, and nominated someone who is going to have a real tough time winning. I know the RINOs and the GOP appreciates that.
