Skip to comments.Vanity: I think I have a masterful strategy for the McCain campaign.
Posted on 10/20/2008 9:08:06 AM PDT by MikeFrancesa.com
I wrote this blog post and put it on my friend's website. Maybe I am crazy but I think this is political gold. If you agree or can come up with a better strategy please email the McCain campaign, if you think I am wrong or crazy that is fair, on little sleep so maybe this is off base:
You need to have McCain on the stump right now, demanding that Obama answer and explain what in the hell Biden is talking about, and why Biden is projecting weakness to our enemies.
I AM referring to the Biden speech on Sunday, located here: http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/10/biden-to-suppor.html
On so many different levels this speech is horrible. Here is a flashback to the 2004 presidential campaign.
President Bush masterfully kept asking John Kerry a question on the stump:
MORE AT THE LINK, not enough room here.
So you may ask, why ask Obama a question, because McCain will not be asking a black and white question, he is asking Obama to explain what Biden was talking about, any answer Obama gives will make his team look bad. If he affirms Biden, it looks like he is projecting weakness, and sewing the seeds of fear. If he negates Biden, it looks as if the campaign is not on message, and Biden is not savvy when it comes to foreign policy.
So now is McCains opportunity, a skilled campaign should seize on this. If Obama leaves it hanging in the air, it will become a bigger albatross.
I would love to hear your input.

He needs to run my commercial. Script below:
Scene: Worker in a factory with slight sweat on forehead
worker is on phone talking to wife who is sitting next to her 14 year old daughter
Wife: Hi honey we missed you for dinner. Will you be able to make it home soon.
Worker: I should be home in a few. You know I need to get these extra hours to help pay for some of our bills and make sure we have enough money because Amies gotta have braces.
New scene: young slacker in jacked up car music blasting with big new rims and his approaching friend.
Approaching friend: Those rims are smokin..Where did you get cash for those bad boys.
Slaker: Man, I got a check in the mail from the government for $1000.00 and ya know I gotta have rims.
scene change: back to worker..you see him distressed concerned worn out fact with sweat dripping from forehead.
Closing statement: Our working families can’t afford Barack Obamas spreading the wealth type of change. John McCain needs your support to fight for you on November 4th.
That would be awesome. How do you send those types of things to the campaign?
Holy cow, that was brilliant, I have no illusions that anyone would read our emails or listen to us but is there an email where we can send ideas.
Like it or not, though not GWB’s fault, it was considered to have happened on his watch.
Granted the Democrats pooped over everything making all this happen, but we have stupid voters mostly in this country and their lack of interest to learn facts over what is presented in commercials and the MSM is what hurts conservatives and the whole country.
No, going after Biden won't do a thing.
You need to hope some major gaff regarding Obama comes to light that swings momentum to McCain.
Obama is in fact a black separatists racist who based on his church has no love for anything not black.
His associations with the Chicago political machine and American grown terrorists makes him the most radical person going for President.
As a socialist/communist, his version of change will scar this country as will any justices or judges that are due to him.
It's bad, the people want change, see Bush but don't understand it is Democrats and not Bush having done anything bad.
We have a good Bush economy, we have a Democrat financial collapse.
Now TRY and get those facts through to non-black American voters and you have a campaign.
Regarding black voters, most seem to be voting a color, from Oprah, Powell and you can check out others in a Howard Stern man-on-the-street interview.
We may get the most racist person as President possible with Obama.
I emailed McCain campaign, Sean Hannity, and Rush..but I don’t know if they read..I am hoping maybe someone reads it here and call Rush or Sean...It would move the polls 5 points..Unfortunately facts don’t sell, emotion does..
Yes you are right and when the American public sees those 1,000 dollar checks in action and what they will be used for, they should revolt.
You might want to email the National Review, does anyone have the major journalists email addresses at the Corner, my mail is not synched up so when I hover over the email I can’t see the address.
Scene: man in company polo shirt, jeans and work boots in home office thumbing through bank statement.
Wife walks in with coffee hands to husband.
Wife: Everything ok?
Husband: Well since the tax hike alot of my regular customers have been holding off on some of the projects they had been planning. I am just worried I will have to let someone go to compensate for the loss of work as well as the tax hike on us.
Wife: We only have five employees, can you get by with only four.
Husband: I will just have to pick up the slack myself and run the estimates too, that's how we made it 10 years ago. I can probably let the new apprentice go without sacrificing the other four who have been with us since the beginning.
Cut scene to man giving walking orders to newest employee. Man has hand on employees shoulder mouthing "I'm sorry" in slow motion.
Cut to scene of employee pulling up to his house as wife and baby walk out to greet him, pan back to reveal 0bama sticker on car bumper.
Disregard, I was able to get the addresses, sent your idea to a bunch of NRO writers.
Excellent..I like that too..McCain needs emotional commercials like that..
You are NOT crazy. The McCain Camp needs to be all over this:
“BIDEN SAYS U.S. WILL BE ATTACKED WITHIN 6 MONTHS OF AN OBAMA ELECTION VICTORY”
Get on this horse and ride it ‘til it falls.
Good general idea, but that specific ad would be branded as racist by every media outlet and would therefore motivate the dumbmasses against McCain.
Make it a redneck in a trailer buying an HDTV.
