New Obama Tactic

Over at Politico, Jonathan Martin claims Obama's now taken to 'repudiating boomers' to woo the older vote. But it just seems like he's talking sense:

"One of the saddest episodes in our history was the degree to which returning vets from Vietnam were shunned, demonized and neglected by some because they served in an unpopular war. Too many of those who opposed the war in Vietnam chose to blame not only the leaders who ordered the mission, but the young men who simply answered their country’s call. Four decades later, the sting of that injustice is a wound that has never fully healed, and one that should never be repeated."

One of the memes floating around Obama's canidacy from insiders is that Obama's adjusting his message to conform to weaknesses in his demographic, but for anyone who's read his book, or listened to the man for more than 10 seconds could see, the only adjustment is against the stereotypes of how 'liberals' are supposed to be talking. Not sure how many, if any, Democratic politicians ever went around 'demonizing' soliders. Sure some wack off anti-war protesters did it, but since when do wack offs become mainstream?
