That's all well and good, but...

Obama Answers Republican Ridicule, Democratic Candidate Responds To The Attacks Unleashed Wednesday At The GOP Convention - CBS News
"What does he actually seek to accomplish after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet?" she asked an energized crowd at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn. "The answer is to make government bigger."

Today, Obama fired back.

"You're hearing an awful lot about me, most of which is not true," he told a group of union workers at a hydro plant in York, Penn. "What you're not hearing about is you."
With all due respect, Senator Obama, this isn't a knife fight. It's not even a gun fight. This is non-stop shelling with heavy artillery. It's an entire wing of F-4s strafing and naping everything in sight. I hate to say it, because your criticism is undoubtedly correct, but this kind of measured, reasonable response just ain't enough. You are to be admired for taking the high road, but just stop for a second, look, and listen. In spite of that, the GOP still mocks you unmercifully. In spite of that, they come out and call you "uppity" - not with dog-whistle words like "elitist," but straight-out, racist, no-noose-barred "UPPITY." The Republican say you can't be trusted to pull the nuclear trigger? Well pull it now. It's time to go thermonuclear on their liver-spotted, pasty white asses. Maybe you can't do it yourself - there's always the "See? We told you he was an angry, scary black radical!" 'tar baby' the GOP has been been itching to stick you with. But why the hell does Joe Biden have to praise Sarah Palin on national television? Why isn't HRC out there kicking Palin to the curb? You have millions of people behind you, Senator - that translates to multiple megatons in political power. The issues are on your side. The mood of the country is on your side. WE are on your side. But we need the General to ride out in front and cry, "CHARGE!"

Please, Senator, for America's sake - PUSH THE BUTTON.
