So, of course we have all heard McCain use the experience argument against Obama. My question is why the hell did he pick a VP wisth equal/less experience than Obama when he's 72-73 years old and has had cancer more than once, so what is the deal? So now that she is only a heartbeat away from being POTUS can that argument still be viable?
WELL honestly I agree...
The TALKING POINTS here state that PALIN being a 18 month governor has plenty of experience. Although I do also believe that this is ULTRA hypocritical.
Personally I think she is going to try and fake it till she makes it. Charisma will trump reality in this case.....
The political right is now pressing her "experience" and actively back tracking on the whole issue of experience.
This is a good strategy for Mccain in some ways...
His campaign is trying to LEVEL the playing field and I believe the next step will be REVAMPING as a REFORMIST movement.
Wether or not people will forget the past eight years is an entirely different ???
The downside for Mccain is that he has effectively gone off message completely.
One thing he and his strategist have seemed to forget is YOU MUST STAY ON MESSAGE!
ALA BUSH was TERROR TERROR TERROR...This " TERROR " strategy worked as we all know.
Mccain will now have to retool everything, as he is effectively at square one.
OBAMA in speech today (convention) seems to have adopted the ROVE/CLINTON
idea of staying on message. In this same speech he and BIDEN did not stray and actually did not even mention PALIN once... All of the focus is on MCCAIN/BUSH
and the DIFFERENCE of OBAMA/BIDEN platform.
ONE thing is either PALIN is going to pay off in a big way or BACKFIRE HUGE!
