The utter stupidity of McCain campaign team.
Did the McCain camp actually think by allowing Palin to open her mouth as she did this weekend that McCain’s past would not be brought up?
That is sheer folly on their part.
McCain has been in Washington for 26 years – and he has had his scandals none so worse as the Keating 5.
You can watch a video about McCain’s involvement here.
I have blogged about it a long while ago – and I knew then, as I do now, that the McCain camp would go ugly once the polls began to show an increase for Obama.
The McCain camp are going negative – but this time around the swift-boating had better be far, far, far superior than last time. Why? Because McCain has a dodgy past.
Do people really think that the Obama campaign would roll over and die when the accusations began to fly? Utter stupidity to think so.
Many will say that the Obama campaign in going into gutter politics – but you have to remember that Palin and by that, de facto, McCain went down that road first. Obama must stay on message – throwing out the accusations are fine, if McCain wants to keep going there – but the real message must keep coming out and McCain will have to answer it. He is the one in front of the press and camera’s and he will be asked. He will, obviously, try to bring any question back to bringing down Obama – but that will resonate with the American voter that he didn’t, and won’t, answer the questions on the economy.
Obama said a long while ago – “I may be a skinny kid….” To me McCain has asked for this – Palin – well she is still under investigation so she opens herself up, too.
Do they deserve what they are about to get – well, you reap what you sow comes to mind.
