    What? In a panic now? O!’s got this executive-experience thing going yanno & 1 of his biggest decisions has been to opt-out of public-financing of the campaign. Psst! – he broke a vow that he wouldn’t opt-out. And now, w/ less than 2months to go to the GE — & in fuckin’ trouble for dough, y’all gotta put on crash fund-raisers. Now however, with the Hillary-donors not shelling like they were supposed-to & the in-flow less than hoped he’s scrambling for change. Not to speak of the colossal $$$ waste of the magical-mystery-tour of Europe — fright, anxiety, & widespread anticipation of depression have got the fringe throwing-together rock-concerts! Bet he wishes he could still “administer”(nudge-nudge wink-wink) some of that ChicagoAnnenbergChallenge money.
    A guy on the’Net said: “Building an effective staff is the first key to management. It is not easy and needs ‘experience’ even to do that. I suspect Obama’s campaign staff did not have clear job definitions (fundraising, organization, etc.) and may not have been confident enough to raise the `what-if’ questions. — “They seemed unprepared for Palin, yet she was on the radar of the GOP for a long time. They knew that experience was an issue but seemed to spend no time in Denver addressing this. Instead, BHO has `boobed’ everybody with how wonderful his `judgment’ is going to be. But his campaign shows disturbing evidence of leadership-shortcomings.”
