I think he’s withstood a week of Obamamania fairly well, and I’d rather have him save his veep thunder (hoping there’ll be some thunder!) for the end of the summer when people pay more attention.

My biggest issue is that I want to see Obama painted as the laughably and frighteningly far-leftist that he is. That should be the base to the Obama jokes and that should really get put across while McCain simultaneously comes out proactively with a strong energy and economy issue. (I’m with you on the proactive bit!)

I think McCain had to ding Obama on his supposedly heroic trip, and he’s done that. I don’t even really mind that he was seen dowdily tooling about a supermarket while he was at it. But I really want to see a double-barreled message than contrasts McCain’s strong energy and economic solutions with the whacked out radical socialism of Obama.

Just a little arm-chair campaign managing here, but it’s somehow therapeutic!

Nobody votes for VP.

He won’t hurt McCain.

Stop bawling, people! Goodness sake.

Hmmm could Rush with his “high connections” found out about this?

Rush was very upset when talking about the elections today.

Rush goes “we’re screwed”

Dan Quayle is still available and would be more popular than Pawlenty.

“Nobody doesn’t like Dan Quayle.”

I think Romney or Ridge would be stronger picks than Pawlenty.

Pawlenty is a bit of a snooze.

"I will never understand the kind of logic and attitude you just articulated here. What exactly is stopping you from voting for McCain, if only to stop the most radical left wing marxist candidate this country has ever seen from becoming president, AND working to build a massive grassroots conservative movement?"

It has not worked for over 20 years. Every time we vote for the lesser of two evils, the Republicans give us an ever greater liberal the next time. The Senate passed the Mortgage Bailout with only 13 Republicans voting against it. Republicans keep going along with Democrats with the assumption that Conservatives have no other place to go.

I could make the argument that voting for RINO Republicans, simply because they are better than the socialist Democrats, has given us the Mortgage Bailout, Out of Control Spending, No Permanent Tax Cuts, Open Boarders, Amnesty in 09, No Energy Plan, Cap & Trade 09, Prescription Drugs, Falling Dollar, Ethanol, $48 Billion Aids Bill...

The Republicans take Conservatives for granted and continue expanding government once elected. We gave them the power in 2004 and they did nothing. McCain was a major force in opposing anything Conservative getting done. Why should I think this time will be any different?

I didn't hear him upset...I thought he was just slamming the Dems. I just checked the transcripts and couldn't find that...do you remember?

but always passed...If it had not passed the bridge would have been shut down. Problems exist in every bridge, it’s the level of problem that was, unfortuntely, misdiagnosed.

I’m not saying the DOT did a great job, but the bridge was deemed safe to travel as I did hundreds of times over the past 10 years prior to it’s collapse.

At the very end of the show he kind of got emotional.

He goes “Somedays I come in and think we’re gonna win and somedays.. like today I think.. we’re screwed folks”

He said it right before the last break.

McCain needs someone like a Carly Forina. Someone outside the box.

I think that you likely get all of your so called “News” from the Boston Herald.

Your post appears to be lifted from one of their incessant anti-Romney articles from the last couple of years or so.

McCain is running one of the most inept campaigns, ever, for president, and I thought Bob Dole's campaign was the worse. The republicans sure messed up bad this year.

I suspect the democrats pulled out all the stops during the republican primary season to get McCain nominated, because they knew what an awful campaigner he would be, thus assuring the democrats a victory in November.

McCain is toast, he just does not know it yet. He has his head buried in the sand, listening to all his 'yes' men, ignoring the dissent within his own party, just like George Bush Sr did.

Good-bye McCain, get ready to drink your sorrows away with Hillary!
