I'm afraid you ain't seen nothin' yet, Barack.

I think spouses are fair game if they're out campaigning, appearing at rallies, giving speeches, and acting as surrogates.

But I also think it was a dumb strategy for the GOP. What, is that the best they've got?!

I just think it's fucking cute!!! the way he defended his wife...

I actually agree with you Susan, but as we know the Republicans don't play fair - I think Obama is smart to follow the strategy: "if they hit hard, hit back harder."

Plus it is smart politics - everyone (myself included) like a man who will defend his wife.

Caroline said...

All's fair to the GOP. But agreed, Barack handled that with some great political rebuttal. I think it shocks most people just to hear him talk straight, "lay off my wife"...I love it!
