A heartbeat away…
The Obama camp has made a theme and a meme out of calling John McCain “erratic.”
615,000 Google hits for “erratic McCain” and counting.
From the Oct. 12 NYT: “In Friendly Region, Biden Cites McCain as Erratic.”
The Democratic vice-presidential nominee, Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., sharing a stage with Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton for the first time this year, said the campaign of Senator John McCain was stooping to stunts and “ugly inferences” because it was losing and was out of ideas.
Rousing a crowd estimated by the police at 6,000 on an otherwise quiet day on the campaign trail, Mr. Biden said Mr. McCain’s campaign had become erratic, a reference to Mr. McCain’s changing positions on the financial crisis and his decision two weeks ago to suspend his campaign briefly to deal with it.
“Presidents have to supply steady leadership,” Mr. Biden told the friendly crowd in this northeastern Pennsylvania city where he spent the first 10 years of his life. He said Mr. McCain had become increasingly desperate and negative because he saw the presidency “slipping from his grasp.”
I think it’s time for Team McCain to throw a label boomerang right back at gaffetastic, erratic Biden.
Gird your loins, Joe.
And keep talkin’.
