Yes it is an odd strategy on Mccains behalf to roll out the same platform as Obama.
I think has its ups and downs... It is a gamble for certain.
I think all along Mccains evolving message has not been consistent.
FIRST it was experience you can trust
Now it is CHANGE because your experience of me has been undesirable thus far.
The worst mistake Mccain is making is that he has switched to the Change position publicly.
While at the same time saying FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT...
I may be wrong but I have been visiting many message boards and I hear
the same comment.
I'm sorry Mccain... Now you speak of change and what do you equate with change???
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT. All we have been doing is fight with each-other, how is that change.
It seems that people are getting a conflicting message. On a few fronts...
How is fighting change?
If you are about change why is Palin speaking in a very familiar tone (BUSH CHENY).
I really Mccains new platform is not coming from a place of genuine strength.
To be revamping the message over and over will not serve him, even if RONALD REGANS ghost was his running mate. The message of change even in a
rhetorical sense has been paid for and bought by OBAMA with a year and a half of workout is ingrained and equated with the Obama name.
In short Mccain in saying change may actually be subliminal adverts for Obama.
I think the tone of the jabs that PALIN took was an BIG mistake if we are taking swing and undecided.
On the same message boards that I have been reading I notice that people who seemed to be indy have grown to RESPECT Obamas message, even if they do
not support it. I was surprised to see that some of these people have now apparently swung to Obama in PROTEST to the TONE of Palins speech.
I have read more than once... that women is scary, sorry John.
I suggest that Palin appeals to the base, but here PITBULL self is very radical and not
right for this nation at this time.
I prey that mccain will use the phrase FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT over and over, while talking about change. I believe this is horrible horrible strategy!
Provided Obama and Biden do not really f up during the debates, I believe it is theirs to lose.
The cult of personality that is the new messiah is not enough substance when people consider their future.
