Who has said that the Obama campaign was confident that they would win next Tuesday ?
Today, they have adopted a new strategy, one that they had been afraid to use so far...
Until now, they had avoided to attack Sarah Palin, and had ignored her, probably for fear of seeing their attacks described as "sexist".
Since the pitiful episode of the "lipstick on a pig", Obama had been careful not to say anything about his opponent's running-mate...
But suddenly, today, while everybody says that Obama has already won this election, they choose to take the Alaskan governor as a target.
And it is worse than one could imagine.
Have a look !
Here is the script :
"I'm going to be honest: I know a lot less about economics than I do about military and foreign policy issues. I still need to be educated."
Wall Street Journal, 11/26/05
"The issue of economics is not something I've understood as well as I should."
Boston Globe Political Intelligence, 12/18/07
"I might have to rely on a vice president that I select" for expertise on economic issues.

His choice? [Footage of Sarah Palin]
On November 4th, You Get to Make Yours
So, if we understand Barack Obama well , Sarah Palin is less qualified than him to lead the nation, isn't she ?
But, why ?
Why ? Isn't she a governor of an American state (there are only 50 governors in the nation) ?
Doesn't she exert an executive function whereas Mister Obama has only been a senator (legislative function) for four years ?
I see only one reason why Obama judges Sarah Palin incompetent...
Of course, because she is a woman !
Remember, he has not chosen Hillary as his running-mate, although she won eighteen million votes.
Isn't that called "sexism" ?
