I THINK THIS IS OVER

Posted on 09/29/2008 3:27:51 AM PDT by wny

Hope I'm weong, but I think McCAin is finished. If he can't hold Colorado and/or Virginia, there's no way he can win. The chances of him flipping Michigan and/or Pennsylvania is pretty slim. We're screwed.

It’s not over. Watch the VP debate on Thursday and the next McCain/Obama debate before reaching such a dire conclusion.

Oh, don’t say that on a Monday morning! Have faith, my FRiend. Surely there can’t be that many idiots on voting day. I’m not counting the dead voters, though.

It is Sept. 29.

People are just starting to pay attention.

While the economy is very bad (somehow an Obama strength), our apparent economic weakness I’m betting will prompt some of the more insance international players to do some foolish things.

In short, people will realize that we need an experienced adult at the helm. I see McCain by margins more comfortable than Bush.

Nopers...not yet...cause for >some< concern maybe. Thing is I was worried that mccain/PALIN was peaking too early. They need a downturn for awhile and then make a run up in October. Just let the marxist and Biden keep speaking.

Plus I have a feeling something big is gonna happen in October. Something good.

Did you just read a couple of polls? That's what they're for — to scare us into submission or apathy. Do you really think that a neophyte senator far to the left of George McGovern is going to beat a veteran senator and war hero? If the democrats had run a Southern or Border State governor perceived to be a centrist, I could see your point.

Unfortunately, I agree.

When mac chose to not expose the fannie/freddie core problem of Johnson & Raines and their continued relationship with nobama as well as how bwaney frank, dodd, chuck-you schumer, et al are just as guilty, it demonstrates mac's refusal to tackle the problem. He chose to offend his "friends across the aisle".

Sigh. Good Bye America.....

How uplifting! While it’s discouraging at this stage, let’s not give up. Just a couple weeks ago, McCain looked like almost a sure thing in winning the White House and now he’s behind by a few points in the polls, but all is not lost - by any stretch.

Consider the following:

(1) Where has Obama padded his lead? Polls this week have shown McCain holding solid leads in southern states like Louisiana, Tennessee and Kentucky amid all the financial trouble (all 3 of those states voted for Bill Clinton twice). If Obama is mainly just adding to his New York and California leads and only moderately adding to his leads elsewhere, he’s not doing very well. The stupid Daily Kos released a poll done by Research 2000 that found in both of Florida’s 13th and 18th congressional districts, McCain was doing as well or BETTER than President Bush did in 2004, suggesting McCain is still ahead in Florida.

(2) How accurate are the polls, considering Obama’s race? The polls have been pretty much off in almost most of the recent elections from 1996 onwards, if not by small margins.

(3) There’s still more than a month of campaigning. Senator McCain is not to be underestimated.

That said, I’m also concerned about the direction this race is going, but my faith is still there for a McCain win.

Well, Mr. Weong, look at the positive: even if we lose this election, the Community Organizing racket will forever be greeted with skepticism and/or outright hostility. The Left's machine depends on the CO mafia.

Most of the Right hasn't ever heard of Alinsky, but - thanks to 0bama and his friends - we're starting to read his stuff.

Well, I'm in Ohio...so maybe Alaska? Or Floriduh?

mccain simply refuses to engage and expose "his friends". I guess we shouldn't be surprised but I had hopes he would see reality after "his friends" in the MSM began attacking him and sliming Sarah.

I think John McCain sees exactly what is going on.

But then, I'm watching to see what he does, rather than what he says. He's been standing with the House Republicans. For he to have brought this up during the debate WOULD have encouraged a public panic. It would have been truly vacuous of him had he done what you suggest.

If it’s the polls that scare you...quit reading the polls.

We’re 5 weeks out, lots can happen.

Hillary, early on in the primary was written off (not great analogy because she did lose to 0), but my point is she was behind in some polls by 13 points in the NH primary, and she won it.

I don’t know whether to believe the polls or not, but I do know that during the primaries Barry overpolled, so I don’t put a lot of stock in them.

It’s up to McCain (and the Republicans) at this point. They have to stand up and make the Dems own their problems. So far, IMHO, everybody on our side has been too timid to call a spade a spade (and that’s not a racist remark, LOL.)

IMHO, it’s time to be concerned, but it’s not time to head for the lifeboats. 0bama has benefited greatly from the (false) perception that the bailout is due to “Bush-McCain policies.” He also held it together in the first debate, enough that coming in second didn’t hurt him.

And yet, for all that, it’s only a 5-6 point gap nationally, and closer that that in some of the battleground states that are now leaning 0bama. It won’t be easy, but those numbers can be moved, IMHO. I think the following 3 things are key:

-McCain’s got to drive home the truth behind the Fannie/Freddie mess and the nature of the bailout. Bill Clinton has given him a helping hand by pointing out Congressional Democrats blocked reforms during his own administration. McCain needs to run with that.

-McCain also has to start nailing 0bama on the specifics of his spending plans. There’s plenty of material there than can and should scare the dickens out of the taxpayers. Exposing the sham of 0bama’s “middle-class tax cut” alone ought to swing some voters.

-Finally, McCain needs to redouble his efforts to attack on the energy issue, and Sarah Palin needs to be the tip of the spear. She’s got more experience and knowledge on this issue than anyone else on either ticket.
