Posted on 06/03/2008 5:36:15 PM PDT by SE Mom
All 3 candidates have live speeches planned tonight- incoming results from the LAST (can you believe it) of the Dem primaries- it seemed a live thread was called for!
“BELIEVE” is essential to reach American voters, too many of whom, sad to say, are going to vote based on their emotions. The “issues” are quite secondary or invisible.
Faith in government is the key theme in this year’s contest.
Could be but...the point is he HAS them. McCain needs to do something equal otherwise he is doomed.
His campaign IS weak. So weak it brings tears of frustration to my eyes.
I have turned off the tv and radio because I cannot bear what stupid things he or his spokesmen say.
Tho only worse thought is the thought of Barry and Michelle ‘running’ the country.
Frankly he's scaring me as well. I thought Hannity put it to rest yesterday when he said he keeps getting calls from the media about the rumor but has nothing to share.
nutmeg ping to #553.
Thanks for the Beckel link at #553... I checked it out. Has this "dropped" yet? If the Republicans do have some damaging tape of Michelle, why not wait until the fall to drop this? I'm skeptical until I see it...
I am distressed to learn that some members of my extended family (aunts, cousins), who are pro-life, regular Republican voters, and some are Rush fans, have bought into Obamamania and plan to vote for him over McCain. They are "certain" that McCain will "keep us in Iraq for 100 years". I'm just stunned at their foolishness. Looks like I'll have my work cut out for me at the next family barbeque... :-(
He did a terrible job! And he’s had all of this time out of the limelight to work on such a speech. And someone needs to tell him to stop with the full toothed phony grin.
He is capable of doing better. Some weeks ago, I watched him give a speech — can’t remember where — and he looked good and his delivery was good.
Obama just has it all over him in the charisma department. It really doesn’t matter what Obummer says; he just sounds so darned good. I keep hearing people say that McCain’s going to really put it to BHO in the debates, but how many people really watch the debates. Yes, most FReepers will, but we are political junkies. And most voters are not.
Well brace yourself. I read that McCain is now going to claim himself as the "real candidate of change".
Great, just great! He’s making it look like he has no ideas of his own so he’ll just steal Obama’s ideas.
Great, just great!
Yes! I'm sorry to say it, but McCain's "full toothed phony grin" really turned my stomach... really makes him look old and creepy. And I'll be voting for him this fall. How many fence-sitters/undecideds will also be creeped out and go for Obama's style over McCain's substance? (Well, the best "substance" we've got among the candidates, I guess...)
Excellent. Thanks for the new tagline.
Republicans don’t have equally large crowds for protests or speeches because Republican voters are employed. Republican voters are the silent majority, not the loud professional protestors and grandstanders.
McCain is doing very well right now. To be statistically tied at this point in the race? Dukakis had a 17% lead at this point on GHWB and lost. Kerry and Gore had large leads on GWB and got their rear ends handed to them. No, unless something changes the current dynamics will mean a McCain landslide. Republicans always do better as the public has more time to compare them to their Dem counterparts and as a rule about 5% better than the election day polls.
Really the only way I see McCain losing this is a major blunder on his part.
Couldn't disagree more.
Romney would put in play Michigan, Massachusetts, and the NorthWest (perhaps) --- and would energize the conservative base which is now absolutely demoralized.
Just look at all the supporters Romney had in the analyzing pundit media, and that could translate into a LOT of free and energized publicity.
Ingraham, Beck, Limbaugh, Prager, the list goes on and on....
McCain desparately needs some credibility on domestic issues, and I think Romney fits that bill perfectly.
Not to mention his in-place organization, his globs of money and fund-raising ability.
Consider: Romney STILL has the second most popular votes among Republican candidates -easily smooshing Hucklebee even though Romney dropped out two months before HUcklebee.
If not mistaken ,Romney ALSO has more delegates than Hucklebee (very close if not more) ----
Yes, there is one faction of the GOP who hates Romney ... the anti-Mormon blindboys who continue to cling to 20-year old YouTube snippets in a vile attempt to claim Romney is a liberal.
We don't need them.
all that could be true but...we’ll see. I just don’t see it.
Well, we’ll see what happens.
You are welcome.
STOP THE ObamaNATION!
see if your posts made it here;)
You want to take away the right of woman and African-Americans and poor people to vote? You’re no conservative I would want to associate myself with...
I was referencing women,the landless, and those under 21, obviously the Founding fathers were against these groups voting for obvious reasons.
These groups didn't have the vote until the last 80 years or so, they have given us Roosevelt 3 times, Kennedy, Clinton twice, Gore the popular vote, and now Obama is the Democrat nominee.
It may be too late to take away their right to vote but it is certainly OK for Conservatives to understand and talk about why their country is going to hell.
The reasons of the Founders for voting limitations were good ones. “Progress” is not always such a good thing.
Not after the june 18 Larry Sinclair press conference at the National Press Club about obsama’s cocaine and homosex in 1999
NATIONAL PRESS CLUB EVENT CHANGE
Posted by Larry Sinclair on Friday, June 13, 2008
The following changes have been made in the Wednesday June 18, 2008 News Conference originally scheduled for the Lisagor Room at the National Press Club.
The event is now scheduled for Wednesday, June 18, 2008 from 1-5:00 PM in the HOLEMAN LOUNGE at the National Press Club.
This change was due to capacity in the Lisagor Room was a maximum of 40 people. The Holeman Lounge has a capacity of 110. In addition the Holeman Lounge is available from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
It is also my understanding that a very special guest will attend to provide moral support.
uhhh....right. And before they got the vote, we got Jefferson, Jackson, Van Buren, and the corrupt, forgettable presidents of the gilded age. Of course, we also got Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.
After they got the vote, we got Nixon, Eisenhower, Reagan, and both Bushes. It’s pretty much a wash.
Meanwhile, the poor actually tend to vote Republican (check your stats); 18-21 year olds barely vote in any numbers that matter; you might have a point about women, but to say they shouldn’t vote is asinine.
