THE GLOVES COME OFF!!

Ever since Arizona Sen. John McCain sealed the deal this spring to propel himself toward the GOP nomination, I have been worried that his hope to run a “respectful” campaign would enjoin him from getting his hands dirty. In fact, several times in March, April and May I watched as McCain rebuked his own supporters for making strong arguments against Barack Obama, and I thought we were doomed.

Even a little more than a week ago, when McCain and Obama squared off in Mississippi for the first presidential debate, he harped on and on about earmarks and spending when asked about the mortgage and economic crisis. I thought of the end of his acceptance speech, where he yelled “FIGHT WITH ME! FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY!” and shook my head in disappointment.

Now, in terms understood by Sarah Palin and other hockey moms and dads across the country, John McCain has not only dropped the gloves, but he’s pulled Obama’s jersey over his head and is preparing to slug him right in the gut. Yesterday, at a rally in Albuquerque, New Mexico, he FINALLY talked about our economic troubles and gave credit where credit is due. Now, if he can only do the same in tonight’s debate, I think we may see a big shift in the polls.

    McCain needs to fight with the gloves off. This isn’t a beauty contest. It’s about the future of our country. If McCain can hit Obama hard then he should Knock Him OUT.

    in response to dale kemp – young men run for money, old men run for country. Think about it and fight for truth!

    Jon, you said what I was thinking same thing.
    McCain doesn’t have a big ego or power for himself, he is thinking first for our country.
    Get BO until he hurts!

    Please spread the word, its time to fight. This is a war involving weapons of mass deception. Truth first, country first.

    Share that video everywhere and anywhere you think it matters. The truth is hard to get across in talking points and sound bites. People need to know the truth!

    John McCain should ask:

    “Is it possible to expect America’s soldiers to have a Commander In Chief who was introduced to politics by people who bombed the Pentagon.”

    Webster Tarpley, who is a Clinton sympathizer although more radical than the Clintons on the subject of 911, has characterized the Obama candidacy as
    “the Left’s 911″.

    The point that he was making is that just as the official US government “conspiracy theory” on 911, that it was the work of Islamist exremists filled with hate against the United States is a fairy story tailored to flatter and instrumentalize the prejudices of the right, so the Obama candidacy has been a fairy story aimed at flattering and instrumentalizing the prejudices of the Left: on the desirability of having a black man as president, a person able to speak for the excluded and marginalized. And so on. Both of these operations have been pushed through with violence, 911 with physical violence leading to the deaths of at least 3,000 Americans. The Obama story so far just with the intellectual and ideological violence of the mainstream media.
