Obama: “Don’t Underestimate Our Ability to Screw It Up”

17 Oct

Via Political Punch:

NEW YORK, NY — At 11:25 pm ET this evening, at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., thanked Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, John Legend and India Arie for participating in a fund-raising concert benefiting the Obama Victory Fund.

“What a magical evening,” Obama said, “which I will not spoil with a long speech.”

After speaking for a bit to the crowd about issues, Obama urged his supporters to get to work for his election.

“Don’t underestimate the capacity of Democrats to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory,” Obama said. “Don’t underestimate our ability to screw it up.”

I’d say questioning the salary of Joe the Plumber was a screw up; also this quote doesn’t help Obama much either:

“I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?” – Barack Obama, NY Times Magazine, 10/15/08

It reminds me of another quote…
