Obama’s Existential Crisis

For the first time Obama is losing momentum. In speaking with people, everyone has been talking about Palin this or Palin that. I sense real trouble for Obama.

Pajamas Media » Obama’s Existential Crisis
Last week in one fell swoop, John McCain completely changed the dynamic of this presidential election — this campaign is no longer a referendum on Barack Obama. If events of the past few days are any indication, this paradigm shift has caused a staggering existential crisis for Obama and his supporters.

The Democratic Party gamble in this election was hedged on a bet that the Obama campaign could maintain the media’s focus and the electorate’s attention on “The One” to divert attention from all of his attached inside-the-Beltway strings. That illusion has been shattered. For the first time in this campaign, Obama is playing catch-up.
