After the Speech (2): The One Mistake Was...

…the line about bin Laden. About how John McCain says he’ll “follow him to the gates of hell, but he won’t follow him to the cave where he lives.”

Huh? So you’re saying you (and presumably McCain) know where he lives? It invites a response from the McCain campaign. “Okay let us know the GPS of the cave and we’ll go in after him together.”

My theory: this is a direct echo of John Kerry’s failed line in 2004 that he knew where in Tora Bora bin Laden could have been caught. I have a feeling it was probably Kerry’s “contribution” to the speech and Obama trying to take him seriously.

But I guess this is an attempt to blame another for an Obama error. He’s not perfect, but he’s far, far better than any nominee my party has offered since JFK, though JFK was far from perfect, I know. Maybe he’s the best since FDR.
