Because 23 days out from Election Day, I'm sure John McCain always planned on being significantly behind in the national polls and having to play defense in states like Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia, etc. Riiight... At least he can always count on Drudge, Bill Kristol and Mark Halperin to carry his water.

“The national media has written us off. Sen. Obama is measuring the drapes and planning with Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Reid to raise taxes, increase spending, take away your right to vote by secret ballot in labor elections and concede defeat in Iraq. But they forgot to let you decide. My friends, we’ve got them just where we want them.”

If John McCain were Microsoft Windows, I think we're officially up to the Vista launch. Politico asks: Reset Button or panic button? I'd wager the latter.

As always, the Obama camp tells it like it is:

Less than twelve hours after his campaign announced that Senator McCain would finally have some new ideas on the economy, he decided that it was more important to give a new political speech about where he is in the polls. But the American people know that this election isn’t about who’s up or who’s down, it’s about who will change the disastrous Bush-McCain economic policies of the last eight years. Barack Obama will continue to bring his message of change to every corner of this country, which is why he’s talking today about his new plan to provide immediate relief to struggling families and homeowners, jumpstart job creation in America, and ease the credit crisis that’s hurting too many businesses.”

Can you help us out?
