For anyone heading out to vote for john McCain today who doesn't believe that he will just be 4 more years of Bush, please watch this short video totally in McCain's own words.

Since the original thread this response was posted on is locked, & since it is on topic here as well, I'll respond to Paul's post here.

Paul's Post:

Two things:

1) I haven't seen an ad about Wright put out by the national RNC, nor a McCain funded, produced, and authorized campaign commercial about him. There have been some "rogue" state republican parties doing them and there is a group called the National Republican Trust PAC that is running ads with Wright in them, but McCain isn't doing them, he's on the record repeatedly saying he doesn't want to use it or discuss it and doesn't think it should be brought up. Palin made a mention of it a few weeks ago, caught flack for it, and apparently got told to cut it by the campaign because she hasn't done it since. He's been very public on this, to the point his own campaign staffers doing TV interviews who happen to accidentally wander into a situation where mentioning Wright would be fair game and reasonable end up going through all kinds of screwed up verbal gyrations to avoid saying the guys name and get off the topic. To claim McCain has no honor and use this as your prime example is pretty weak. Complain about his softening on his initial immigration reform package, his twisted anti-logic on railing against Obama and to some degree Bush on economic policy, and yet sign onto the bailout bill proposed by Bush and supported by Obama, or any number of other topics... but he's clean on this item.

2) McCain has name recognition, historical importance/interest, and quite a bit of political juice left even if he loses tomorrow. McCain is no loser. I would hope you'd have some respect for the man regardless your partisan positioning of the day.




I'll take these items in order:
When you say this: "There have been some "rogue" state republican parties doing them and there is a group called the National Republican Trust PAC that is running ads with Wright in them, but McCain isn't doing them, he's on the record repeatedly saying he doesn't want to use it or discuss it and doesn't think it should be brought up"

1. Are you really saying that McCain has totally lost control over his election campaign & couldn't stop these ads by just picking up the telephone?
2. Since these ads go against McCain's publicly stated aversion to "Take the low road" wouldn't you agree that they hurt him more than they help?



I agree with this quote from your above statement
: "Complain about his softening on his initial immigration reform package, his twisted anti-logic on railing against Obama and to some degree Bush on economic policy, and yet sign onto the bailout bill proposed by Bush and supported by Obama, or any number of other topics.."




In relation to Rev. Wright himself, how tactically effective was it for McCain to bring up this matter when McCain himself sought support from the right wing, anti-Semite televangelist John Hagee, especially when he is trying to woo the elderly Jewish vote in the key state of Florida today?
