Tonight, the Obama campaign will briefly celebrate a solid debate, and will no doubt continue Joe Biden's prep for his face-off with Sarah Palin. If her appearance on CBS News is any indication of her expected performance, this could get ugly. Or, she could be pulling the biggest sandbagging of all time. I'll relax when we get to January 20 and we have a President Obama in the White House.
But locally, we have other races and other issues to deal with, and with that, I give you a challenge to Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from Annette Taddeo in the FL-16 race.
Annette Taddeo's campaign pounced on Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Friday for not speaking out more on the Bush administration's bailout plan - but Ros-Lehtinen's camp says otherwise.I have no doubt that Ros-Lehtinen doesn't want to delve into the specifics of the bailout plan because if there's anything that the public agrees on more than that King George the Lesser is pretty much useless, it's that no one wants to see $700 billion go to bail out the financial wizards who got us into this freaking mess in the first place.
A Taddeo release criticizes the Republican's "silence" and says she has received more than $800,000 in contributions from the financial services industry during her 19 years in Congress: "Ros-Lehtinen votes consistently with President Bush to reward Wall Street and remove accountability," it says.
Early voting starts in Florida on October 20. Get out there and vote, and drag a friend or five along with you. Change can't come soon enough.
