Obama gave up way too early in West Virigina and he’s making the same mistake in Kentucky

  1. Your argument is a good one but I think the strategy was to be disciplined in maximising his returns in favourable states and minimising the losses in unfavourable states. That strategy worked… Now he can go and introduce himself better and say hey you didn’t have much of a choice in the primaries cos we all couldn’t make it every where… I’m here now, hit me with your concerns… let’s reason together. Together we make this AMERICA! He could also have been blunting Bill’s then new wedge message… that he ain’t showing Hillary respect…. by acknowledging her power bases… He didn’t have to go and fight her on her turf… making enemies…. now he can go and extend his hand in friendship… coming in peace and hoping for a refreshing drink… First rule of combat…. Don’t enter your enemies turf especially when they are strong and determined..
    Lure them out…

    Unless it is an absolute must, then you better be better prepared than your opponent! My 2 pennies worth ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. oh I forgot to add that I had the same thoughts as you at first in the heat of the primaries.

    I reasoned soon enough that the possibility of garnering enough delegates to clinch the nomination with the favourable states, was between 80-90% in which case it was in Obama’s interest to lay off Hillary but still engage her enough to keep her busy all over the place.. AND most importantly start pressing home the respect issue… Hillary’s campaign was about Hillary.. he had to push into peoples minds that it had to be about them and the country subtly…. when she is out of the way and they deal with the disappointment, he can push his message that it’s all about them, harder…. than before like the tough suitor who rebuffs your advances, you wear their resistance thin…. then they consider hmmmm, this schmuck may not be too bad to listen to every now and then…. Then they begin to nod when the message is right and the feeling increasingly gets better…. Before you know it..Poom! The skies open, the angels are singing and everything is alright with the world…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ U know what I mean? Barack intimated that Michelle was a tough get right? Hmmm, well he’s had good practice!!
