I Think I Might Smell a Little Strategy Here……..
I think it’s safe to say at least 90% of us have been really ticked off with the way John McCain hasn’t come out swinging on Barack Obama on Fannie and Freddie, as well as a score of other issues. He’s obviously trying to play the bi-partisan, populist tone here. We all think it’s not working, but something tells me that this might be one | Read More »
Exposing the Obama/Biden lie that they know “how to end a war”
John McCain has a critical need to take control of the Obama/Biden attempt to hijack the meaning of “end a war” – one that Joe Biden again raised at the debate (and which Sarah, alas, did not take down). The myth is that the U.S. can simply decide to end a war by setting a 16-month deadline for removing troops. What we need to tell | Read More »
Fellow Redstaters, please help refine McCains’ campaign themes
I’m on vacation and am borrowing a computer for this diary. I don’t know if the e-mail excerpted below got to McCain’s campaign, but listening to Susah Palin last night, especially her closing statement (I missed her opening), I did hear some of what I suggested, including her defense of American Exceptionaism and her mention of Obama leading to a sunset of American freedom.

BREAKING NEWS: John McCain Just Threw In The Towel.
McCain campaign officials have apparently informed James Pethokoukis that John McCain, most likely after taking the advice of some of the many former Bush aides that have somehow managed to get themselves hired by his campaign, has decided to adopt the “New Tone” and go easy on the Democrats and the huge role they played in creating the financial crisis together with Fannie, Freddie and | Read More »
-Dear Mr.Obama Videos-
Well hello, blog-osphere. How wonderful it is to be here. At this particular moment in time, I don’t really have any ground-breaking thoughts or ideas to share, and no promises that I ever will. But what I do have today, is a discovery. I’m not sure how many will read this, and out of those unlikely few, how many have already discovered my discovery, but | Read More »
McCain can ride the bailout to victory
John McCain must change the way the bailout of Wall Street is perceived by the public or he will lose. If the average American keeps thinking of the bailout as a giveaway he will lose in the Electoral College by a landslide. Most people in this country are utterly ignorant about economics. Almost everyone I talk to thinks that the problems on Wall Street are | Read More »

How McCain should deal with the Bailout trap set by the congress Dems
It is clear that the Republicans are being set up in a dilemmna by the Dems in the Congress regarding this bill. All the presidential candidates are keeping a cautious distance. For Obama this is the best action as drilling into the bailout and the dirty history will put him and Dems on a destructive path. McCain on the other hand worries about the blame | Read More »
Re: What will Tina Fey do now?
Agree, Mark. And your question begs another, “What will Kathleen Parker do now?” According to talk show host Mike Gallagher, she isn’t budging: “On my radio show today, Parker defended her column. Feisty and a bit combative, she reiterated her belief that Gov. Palin is a lightweight who wasn’t “properly vetted” and ought to fade away into the sunset, clearing the way, as she put | Read More »

Flashback to 2000: “Bush Is Toast”
Ace of Spades today linked to this piece by William Saletan in Slate. From September 14, 2000 it pronounced GWB “toast” because of his poor standing in the polls. Saletan’s concluding paragraph: A candidate who puts pride before prudence, refuses to learn from his mistakes, and is capable of living for days in an alternate political universe can only survive while he’s ahead. Once he | Read More »
Earth to McCain: Try The ULTIMATE “Hail Mary”!

Breaking: RNC raised $66 million last month.
RNC shatters monthly fundraising record The RNC raised nearly $66 million in September, breaking its all-time record. Committee spokesman Alex Conant credited the haul to the strength of John McCain and Sarah Palin. I don’t have the RNC’s cash-on-hand – yet – but I can tell you that my notes tell me that the RNC had 76.5 million COH at the beginning of September and | Read More »
How Can We Really Stop Another Great Depression?
The Dow has closed about 350 points as I write this, and if the 777 point drop on Monday is “blamed” on the House rejecting the Pelosi Bailout Bill, then we have to blame this drop on the Senate passing their version of a Bailout last night. Fair is fair. When you factor in the Dow gain on Tuesday, the two net drops are close | Read More »
