In his acceptance speech at the Republican convention, McCain asked us to "fight with me." But now he has changed his tune, arguing that we should be "bipartisan" at a time when the Democrats are trying to destroy our party and put a radical leftist in the White House.
Barack Obama has given our side tons of ammunition: His woeful lack of experience, his ties to Alinsky, his friendship with anti-American terrorist William Ayers, his allegiance to the racist anti-semite Jeremiah Wright, his Senate record of voting for higher taxes every chance he got, and his opposition to reining in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. But instead of fighting to win this election, John McCain is calling on us, his supporters and donors, to be "bipartisan," to bend over, grab our ankles, and let the liberal Democrats have their way with us.
From where I sit, it looks like McCain has stopped fighting. So how can he ask us to fight with him? I will no longer support Republican candidates who refuse to fight for what we believe in. John McCain must decide for himself whether he is going to put Washington "bipartisan" elitism first, or his country first.
Unless McCain drops his attempts to cuddle up to Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, and the rest of the Democratic Party, and instead starts swinging, I will not vote for him on November 4.
To be honest, I'm not all that sure he really wants to win. Get ready for President Obama (I'm getting sick already just thinking about it).
Hope they do not hamstring Sarah with McClames reach out baloney. If they do she will have to go back to Alaska to set up the seccession. Alaska may be the first state to drop out of Obama Nation. Only She can save us now.
he has two debates left and four weeks, if he refuses to play hard ball politics, against the Chicago, Alinsky taught Obama, the he is toast.
But all is not lost, no all is not lost, not yet anyway.
McCain is more interested in being “bipartisan” than in winning an election. He wants the Democrats to like him more than he wants the White House.
Five point deficit in manipulated poll is not “getting ugly”. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
Kerry takes lead in new opinion poll
October 8, 2004 - 5:29PM
Democrat John Kerry has taken a slight lead over US President George W Bush, according to a new opinion poll. The survey by the Associated Press found that Kerry had gained ground with women, boosting his overall popularity and cutting into the president’s advantage on national security.
The two candidates remain in a very close race ahead of a second debate tomorrow in St. Louis.
Among 944 likely voters, the Democratic ticket of Kerry and John Edwards led Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, 50 per cent to 46 per cent, in the poll conducted for the AP by Ipsos-Public Affairs.
The October 4-6 survey had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. The race was tied at 47 per cent among the 1,273 registered voters in the poll, similar to others showing a tight race.
Forget polls-the election was just stolen in Ohio right in plain sight.
I will vote for him. As a last gasp but am dropping the repub party. I am going to the Constitution party to work in the resistance. Ron Paul was the only Republican who could of won.
“Get ready for President Obama”
Super Mega, Face-turn-green, stomach pain, fall on the floor Barf Alert!!!!
The thought of Obamanation being President makes me cringe.
What is America thinking? Honestly...
Battleground recently changed its methodology. They said so. So Obama movement is just in line with the other polls because they’re now using the same methodology.
McCain has never been in this to win. He is not a conservative. He is barely a republican. He should have switched over when the dems asked him. The malaise will begin in full on Jan. 20, 2009. The long nightmare will begin. The fall into the grips of full socialism is upon us.
Reagan is spinning in his grave.
And not a peep from McCain on that either. These F’ing Republicans just assume people will wake up one day and see it their way.
Thanks for that cheery note! I mean it.
Will this be enough for the "it is media bias only--McCain is doing fine" crowd to wake up?!
McCain IS blowing it by not fighting back.
Maybe if McCain imagined Barack were a REPUBLICAN, he might have a little more zest in his campaign.
I'm not giving up, but it looks like McCain is.
He is starting to look like GHW Bush in 1992...not really giving a damn. :(
You are so correct about looking at history on these polls.
Once this bail out bill passes and the so called crisis is over the campaign will take a whole different approach.
He can’t be partisan today or he’ll be blamed for the defeat of the bailout bill. He can’t afford that.
There. Fixed it.
