Once again, John McCain has switched his campaign theme – from “change” to “fight.” At a Miami rally the other day, he talked about fighting about 17 times. Does he now plan to fight change if elected?
If so, admitting it is the first honest thing he’s said lately.
But I don’t get it. Thanks to Bush and Cheney’s “our way or the highway” attitude, there’s been nothing but fighting at home and abroad.
After enduring 8 years of threats and intimidation – from their own government – Americans want a cool head, not a perpetually angry guy who suddenly wants to drain the Congressional swamp he’s been happily wallowing in for 22 years.
As election day nears, McCain and Palin have resorted to spouting gibberish, nonsensically try to ride in to victory on another wave of rage and fear, not sensing that the tide on that tactic went out with Bush’s approval rating.
We’re sick of being the world’s biggest bully. People want a leader who’s smart enough to understand foreign and domestic matters, and willing to be constructive, not destructive.
McCain’s campaign recently said they don’t consider Northern Virginia “real” Virginia because it’s diverse, near Washington, and isn’t leaning Republican. Apparently, they think “real” Virginians are predominantly white, blue-collar simpletons who’ll turn up at their rallies and cheer for anybody who makes a few NASCAR references and pretends to be one of them.
They have no clue how sophistiCATed many of us really are.
So Virginia polls show Obama leading by 2-10 points, the first time a Democrat has been favored here for president since 1964, and McCain has been reassuring his dwindling supporters, “Friends, we’ve got them right where we want them.”
See what I mean? Gibberish.
