1. Now that’s a highly charged meme to take into Campaign ’10! Obama as the kiss of death.
2. The right is always eager to create equivalence between Bush and Obama to erase the memory and responsibility of “the worst President ever.”
3. Any opportunity to make Dems seem soft, the right is going to take — because it works. And, playing Crist for gay is like two-for-the-price-of-one.
4. The right wing just can’t help itself when it comes to the race card. In the mix here is the stereotype of the oversexed black man, and his supposed love for a white conquest.
