This race really isn’t playing out much different and if McCain strengthens his message and delivery and takes Obama down in the next two debates he will win. One of the details about the 20% of undecideds is that they listen to talk radio regularly and we know it ain’t Air America. This game is stacked against Obama. McCain just needs to start running like he was up untill this mess and that is like Reagan. He also needs to use big government for a punching bag. Every bit of dust and stuffing he knocks out of it will be worth its weight in votes. I don’t know why he doesn’t understand this very simple thing. People trust the government less than probably any other time. He just needs to pick up that gun and start firing. People will love it.
He doesn't understand it because he, like Bush, actually thinks big government is a good benign influence in the nation's life. McCain has a sort of an excuse. He never studied history much. Bush was a history major and he has no excuse whatsoever.
