Fighting back!

There are positive signs the bad news of the last 10 days is being put aside. For one, today's Rasmussen tracking poll and last night's NBC/WSJ poll have Obama up 1, which is meaningless other than to suggest the tide has stemmed.

More importantly, our candidate is fighting back tough:

Barack Obama said Wednesday 'enough is enough' after nearly a day of McCain campaign claims his 'lipstick on a pig' comment was a sexist attack leveled at GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin, and accused the Arizona senator's presidential campaign of engaging in "swift boat politics."

"Spare me the phony outrage. Spare me the phony knee talk about change," Obama said at the start of an education event in Virginia. "We have real problems in this country right now. The American people are looking to us for answers, not distractions, not diversions, not manipulations. They want real answers to the real problems we are facing.

"I don't care what they say about me. But I love this country too much to let them take over another election with lies and phony outrage and swift boat politics," he also said. "Enough is enough."
