I just watched the La Crosse Rally, and it was compelling enough that i wanted to start a new thread. Many thanks to bayliving for the original live thread!
This was the best speech in my opinion that McCain has given all year. It was detailed, mature, hard hitting, and very Presidential.
A new narrative seems to be developing that is really exciting: Underdog. McCain has shifted the message from "dont believe the polls" to "we are down like we always are but we are going to surprise everyone one more time".
Also, McCain introduced a new idea: to erase the requirements in IRA, 401k for seasoned citizens to be forced to withdraw their money. Excellent idea!!
The crowd was fired up, very intense, and I think we just might surge in WI!!

More and more Americans are starting to finally realize how much of a criminal, communist, racist and thug Barack Hussein Obama is.
I can only hope and pray that things shift toward John and Sarah, and the future of our Republic.
We are going to win. I feel it. I know what the polls say. but the feeling in the air is different.
Simple and effective -- it would allow people with other forms of savings to ride out the market turmoil...
it is....i sense it too
almost a re-awakening of the base
I hope and pray you are right. People of Ohio, please pull it out for John McCain!!!!!/Just Asking - seoul62......
thanks for the post! Hope he keeps up this spark. I think he will and LOVE the enthusiasm!!!! McCain/Palin will win. It’s going to happen. It’s almost as if the Economy problem has been such a downer so long that American voters are becoming desensitized to it and where Obama should be much more ahead becasue of Bush presidency through this crisis...it seems voters are holding out. I really think they will fall toward McCain in the end...it will happen. I cannot imagine America truly voting for a radical, muslim Obama....not gonna happen. Dems will just not vote than put in a vote for him....AND Republicans need to come out in force...big time.
“we are down like we always are but we are going to surprise everyone one more time”.
Um..I’m not sure I like that line.
That stuck out with me, too. That should happen now.
McCain needs to buy TV time to address the nation, several spots of a minute or more during the next couple of weeks. Use the live rallies for raw meat against Obama. Use the TV spots for solutions, to look presidential and, believe it or not, pep talks about how the country has weathered financial storms before and survived. But make sure to say that socialist solutions have never worked and that’s what my opponent is proposing.
the line was better than how i represent...
it actually worked really really well
That’s a good idea (401k). McCain needs 4-5 economic ideas e.g. drop cap gain tax, flat tax...etc. People respond...they will be issues to work through on them but voters want to grab on to a lifeline out and not socialism.
Nah. I have two sisters-in-law that are supporting "the one". Both are otherwise intelligent. Just hopeless liberals.
Hey McCain: Eliminate all capital gains taxes until further notice and watch the markets spring to life.
You couldn’t be more right! I love an underdog and I think the silent masses are going to come out on Election Day and vote McCain-Palin!
Did he name Romney as Secretary of Treasury yet?
“We are going to win. I feel it. I know what the polls say. but the feeling in the air is different.”
I feel it too...it’s a very calm feeling...can’t explain it...but you just know....
