Finally, the 2-year long presidential race is drawing to a close. During this final stretch, does the McCain campaign choose to draw in new voters by advocating and promoting his own plans and strategies as President? Or does he and Gov Palin continually mock and attempt to ignite fear over Sen Obama? Hmmm, gee I can’t tell.
Campaigning in Pennsylvania together this week, the McCain/Palin team have kept up their constant hammering over their Muslim/Arab/Terrorist Associating/Socialist opponent. “He’s more interested in controlling wealth than creating it, in redistributing money rather than spreading opportunity,” Mr. McCain said. “Senator Obama is running to be redistributionist in chief. I’m running to be commander in chief.” Continuing on there was the moment when he characterized Mr. Obama’s energy policy as “blah blah blah,” as in: “You know, when we talked about offshore drilling, he said he liked it, blah blah blah, all this, and then he said, ‘I will consider — I will consider offshore.’ We don’t need to consider, we need to drill now!”
It is extremely unfortunate for the Replublican party that their candidate is continuing to run on what has become an obviously failed strategy. Interesting parallel isn’t it? The Bush/Cheney administration has been running for the past 8 years on what is now called (even by Fox news) failed and foolish strategies, in both their economic, and war plans. However, they still laud and praise their own ideals as being successful, despite one of the lowest approval ratings of all time.
In the same way, according to all polls, McCain/Palin are now down by double digits. And yet, just a couple days ago on Meeth the Press, McCain claims that everything is wrong, and he’s going to win by a comfortable margin. But he and Bush are nothing alike right?
Oh well, at least McCain finished his latest speech with one of his trademarks. “By the way, when two mavericks join up, they don’t agree on everything,” Mr. McCain said, “But that’s a lot of fun!”
