It’s officially time to panic.

Barack Obama leads John McCain 45 percent to 39 percent in the latest CBS News poll.

Not good. Obama’s people better figure out how to respond to McSame’s devastating "Paris" ad and all of those relentless tire gauge attacks pretty damn quick. Because they’re clearly having a significant impact.

Consider — since this barrage of negative attacks started, McSame has dropped 3 points in the CBS poll since June.

And McSame is outspending Obama during the Olympics, so it’s not inconceivable that he could drop even lower. Nothing could be worse for Obama than consistently leading McSame through the election.

McSame’s got us right where he wants us. Unless Obama rights the ship, we could be headed for another ’84 or ’72.
