Crowley: The Obama team battles back on GOP barbs

CNN

Watch critics are hitting Obama hard for this stage. CNN's Jessica Yellin reports.

DENVER (CNN) - Camp Obama is stinging over Republican barbs that the stage tonight, surrounded by thousands of spectators, is "the Temple of Obama."

His campaign manager came out to say GOP has it all wrong — that Obama wanted as many people as possible to be involved in this night because the election is about them. I think. Also gave some hard sell on how to get involved. Obama-ites are all over the place, passing out volunteer cards.

    Kevin, what do you expect from people slow enough to support McCain. McCain doesn't even know his countries or how many homes he has. You expect them to know about the Lincoln Memorial. They have no curiosity and lack intelligence. That's the problem.

    Some of these bloggers really have a problem with the fact that Obama gives people hope. McCain gives them nothing but recycled Geo. Bush reterick. Don't you people realize that America wants more? We've been lied to about the war or our reason to be in it. We've watched Geo. Bush grandstand for 8 yrs. He doesn't even think that the economy is a problem????? In fact, it's because of Rep. thinking that we are all so despirate for some change. Get a grip people, the Rep. party wants people to just blindly follow them again.

    Obama needs to get the chip off his shoulder.
    If he can't handle the barbs of this campaign, then maybe he shouldn't be the one running. Is he going to whine every time someone says something "mean" about him?

    Mr. Kevin, Get a little more information and understand why this is appalling. A few 101 courses in aesthetics should help you out. Yes, it is understood that it is a rendition of the Lincoln Memorial. The outrage is its, scale, fakery and gaudiness in a time when ecology and economics are a main strive so we can help Americans out of their demise of a wasteful pop culture industry. It is not only wasteful for our resources but for out minds.
