Keys to Victory: Optimism, Populism, Detailed Policies, and Fierce Blows
Now that the bailout bill has passed, the focus can return to other important issues. McCain’s worst weeks are over, and his campaign can only improve. I want to share four keys to victory: optimism, populism, detailed policies, and fierce blows.
Preach it, brother.
Letter to Sen. McCain
Senator McCain, After spending a week focused on the bailout and seeing our position in the polls deteriorate, I respectfullly urge you and your campaign to get more aggressive. I’m sure you have staff monitoring the conservative blogs and if so, you’ll see an overwhelming sentiment and impression that you’re ‘going through the motions’ and appearing as though you might not be playing to win. | Read More »
So you want the GOP to go whale on the Democrats…
And, yeah. The Democrats messed it up. They messed it up real good, to the point where we’ll get the usual rash of commenters who’ll sign up solely to tell us that thesituationisverycomplicatedandyoucantputtheblameonanyonepartyorpersonespeciallyOBAMAOBAMAOBAMAOBAMAexcusemeinervousticthere… after they see that I’ve posted this. But I digress. So, you want to go there? Then go here to RightChange.com and see what they have to say. Here’s a taste: Or, | Read More »
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 »
