Merrill Matthews thinks so. Writing at Human Events he gives the quote of the year so far:
Rick Perry took the ball from Bush and scored an economic touchdown for Texas. Obama took the ball from Bush and fumbled it—repeatedly—giving the other team a chance to score a touchdown.
My political insider (who told me it was McCain in ’08 when he was completely out of it) says this is the guy who will win. Not only the nomination, the election. And while he’s doing an awesome job in Texas, I don’t really see him ‘scaring’ Team Obama. Then again, I think Team Obama thinks this’ll be a cakewalk because, come on, it’s friggin’ Barak f’n Obama over here, how can he not win?
There’s not a Republican in the race I wouldn’t vote for against Obama. I would vote for a ham sandwich before Obama. Then again, I would rather vote for a guy holding two lit bombs wearing a jacket full of C4 and screaming “Death to America!” repeatedly over Obama, so who am I to judge?
So what do you say? Who’s the candidate Obama fears most?
