Should Obama Speak to an Invisible George W. Bush at the DNC? - Page 2
Under normal circumstances any attempt by President Obama and his party to go back several years in history to defend their records would have been torn apart by the GOP as weak defense for incompetence. However, the GOP can no more complain about being unduly attacked if some one will do an "East Wooding" on any of their leaders as they have publicly praised and justified what the Octogenarian Hollywood icon has enacted during the RNC.
But what will be the best way to delicately tap in to the enormous opportunity must be the thought keeping the DNC managers sleepless for last week. Obviously a copy cat performance by another celebrity or any of the leaders will be deemed ridiculous and can easily backfire.
Their best bet is President himself, who has time and again proved his entertainer appeal, especially during the White House Correspondents Dinner Speech. Obama has proved not only that he can pull off effective jabs at his political opponents, but that he can do such things convincingly while unbelievably difficult situations like the operation Geronimo was being carried out under his command. President Obama no doubt is as much a theatrical performer as Clint Eastwood is.
It is hard to see that he and his political managers will let such an opportunity go. A rebuttal in some form or the other must be expected. It will certainly be one of the high points of the DNC. In what form and way the president will deliver that will determine the political maturing of Barack Obama.
