Matt Drudge linked to an AP report of a New Jersey fundrainser at which Sen. Obama assured the big-bucks givers:
"We're not going to be bullied, we're not going to be smeared, we're not going to be lied about," Obama said. "I don't believe in coming in second."Just One Minute’s Tom Maguire saw an opportunity to offer “free advice to Team Obama:”
Whether Obama is revealing personal weakness or simply highlighting the historic weakness of his party, this is not talk that projects strength, especially in the current context - what is Obama saying, he won't be bullied by a 44 year old hockey mom?The rest of Tom’s post is here.

From Team Obama’s point of view, the bright side of the “We’re not going to be bullied” whine is that the Senator didn’t add: “By these bitter small town Moms who cline to hockey sticks and religion.”
