Schmidt and Wallace ran the worst campaign in US history. If what you say that they were Romney people, then we have an inside job at work. I suspect they did it to insure that McCain lost and set up 2012 for Romney. They knew that if McCain were elected, he would get a 2nd term and keep Romney from the White House for eight years. They tried to use Sarah Palin to drag down the campaign. They tossed her into the interviews, hoping the networks would tear her down enough to hurt the campaign. If anything, that tactic did not work as well as the Saturday Night Live lie. I knew the fix was in when the McCain team did not counter the Saturday Night Live smear job.
I think McCain was so caught up with Sarah Palin, that he did not watch his campaign close enough to figure out his campaign was being sabotaged. It shows what an inept president he would have been.
I think McCain was jealous of Palin’s success..he didn’t think she would bring in the huge crowds that she ended up drawing. He thought he could use her as his puppet, but she turned out to be a very powerful voice and attracted HUGE crowds and McCain was jealous, jealous that people would only come to his rallies to see her, jealous that instead chanting his name they would chant hers. From what I have read Nicolle Wallace’s husband is now working on Romney’s campaign(Surprise Surprise!) Its like the saying goes “If I can’t have you no one can” as far as Wallace and Schmidt were concerned, if Romney couldn’t be VP, then neither was Sarah, that simple. All Wallace and Schmidt are doing now is trying to deflect attention away from what a horrible campaign they ran and blame everything on Sarah Palin, please, if it weren’t for Sarah Palin I would have stayed home, McCain was such an utter bore, it was like pulling teeth with him to say anything of substance, it was always the same boring speech, Sarah Palin energized that campaign, gave it life, I actually contributed to a campaign, first time in my life, when her name was announced..but instead of wanting to win, McCain’s cronies decided to blow the election so that Romney would have a chance in 2012 to become the nominee
