McCain: Obama would lose a war to win a political campaign

Good stuff:

This is what McCain needs to keep doing. He needs to stop being timid and be willing to hammer Obama on his every deficiency. If he can do that, if he can bring every skeleton in the closet to light, poke holes in every policy plan, showcase his panderingand flip-flops, and stress his lack of experience, then he won't have a problem winning. He's gotta be willing to fight for it, though. And he's going to have to say stuff like this all the time. He has to be unafraid to take Obama on. Yes, the media will hate him for it. Yes, liberals will be outraged. But he's no longer the media darling. They don't love him anymore; he's no longer their adorable maverick. They have a new savior to worship. And if he wants to win, he needs to be more active. He needs to be more visible. And he needs to be pointing things like this out on a daily basis. Hammer Obama relentlessly and don't give up. Americans won't be finding out any negatives about Obama between now and November, so McCain needs to force the issues into the spotlight. If not, he'll never be able to win.

He's only about 4-5 points down, even WITH the press having done pretty much everything but coronate Obama.

Seems a bit odd to me, that... could it be the media are the ones keeping Obama afloat, and without them, he'd sink like a rock?

hyperbolist:

McCain is stealing Obama's Iraq strategy, which is to respect Maliki's authority and remove American soldiers by a given date. Crazy old man hasn't got any ideas!

Hyperbolist -

From what I've been reading, Maliki's saying he doesn't want a TIMETABLE - he wants assurances we'll really go as the Iraqi Army can do the job. Obama's talking timetable, McCain's saying we'll get 'em ready and support them as they take over, and then transition out.

(Kind of like teaching the little guy to ride a bike. You encourage him, assure him he can, pick him up when he falls and tell him he has to keep trying - and pretty soon he's on his own.)

I'm also skeptical about any reporting featuring Obama and any foriegn leader these days. I have no assurances that what's being reported is accurate, and it's already quite clear that the media has all but crowned Obama as the next President.

(Crown a President? Ah, hell. Another crappy metaphor.)

Hyper, you are too unintelligient for words. Obama has no strategy. He has many. Whatever one fits into todays news the best, that is his strategy. ww

Oh, c'mon, Cassy. McCain might not be full-on conservative, but he's not a democrat. Therefore we cannot hope he will actually campaign this way, instead he'll 'denounce' anyone that goes after the New Age Messiah, be polite (so no one can talk about his being 'angry'), and in about 6 months we'll have a shiny new President with about a year of experience as a Senator, a little time as a state legislator, a professor teaching things he has demonstrated he does not understand, and a fall back career as a "community organizer" for his racist preacher and terrorist friends. And McCain'll be the first to congratulate him before he returns to the Senate to vote against his party and reclaim his 'most favored senator by the press' status.

hyperbolist:

Willie, don't be such a petulant clod, it's unbecoming. Obama suggested 16 months, and Maliki asked for a couple more. That's a timetable. What's McCain doing now? Proposing a 12 month timetable.

As for Obama changing his mind on certain issues--no shit! What political candidate--ever--has entered a race with a set of ideas/principles, and concluded with an identical set? Are you denying that McCain does the exact same thing that so bothers you about Obama--namely, practices the fickle art of politicking? What ****ing planet do you live on?

Nathan:

For months Sen McCain has critized Sen Obama for not going overseas. Now that he is over there, all Sen McCain can do is complain about the media coverage Sen Obama is receiving. The truth be known is that McCain thought he was setting a trap for Obama. He figured Obama would fall on his face and embarrass himself and then the Rep would have something to talk about, BUT the trap back fired and now Obama is cashing in on a dare that McCain put on the table.

Largin Testin:

Dear Cassy, McCain could stand in Times Square naked and not get noticed, even by the supposed righty news. He is second banana to every gaffe and new-nuance of his opponent. Why not talk up McCain, ( Great american, great for the country in her time of need OUR ONLY HOPE IN ''08), instead of "oh yeah and"; like he gets everyehere. The universe hears Obamamaobamaobamaobama, not whether you like him or not, ( according to some). and will respond with more.

hyperbolist:

In Cassy's defense, Largin Testin (cool name!), it's a lot easier to find instances of Obama misspeaking than it is to find examples of McCain doing something praiseworthy.

diogenes:

McCain's comment was reprehensible, virtually calling Obama a traitor.

But think about this:

McCain has been saying "I know how to catch bin Laden." Really? Well, if you do, why haven't you tipped off the current administration and/or the military? You mean you would rather use this to try to win an election, rather than getting bin Laden as soon as possible?

No WONDER McCain made the accusation against Obama: it's what McCain is doing himself, apparently.

Nixon had a secret plan to end the Vietnam War when he ran in 1968, and people elected him. Needless to say, Nixon had nothing except empty campaign promises. Please tell me America can't get fooled the same way again!
