Message to McCain
Posted by Ryan on February 20, 2008
Simply: Make it about the issues!
Michael Medved’s above piece makes a case that it is becoming more clear that no one is going to beat O’Bama in a personality contest or if the contest simply comes down to a matter of experience.
I happen to agree with that assessment, but not with Medved’s pessimism. This needs to be a race about philosophical differences. And McCain has started to move away from the primary battles with a Huckabee as the obligatory other guy, and has begun to hit O’Bama where the MSM won’t: the issues.
So far so good with early “general election” McCain. He’s sounded philosophical, conservative in contrast to the socialist pigs, and has been on the offensive (the Obama “Spend-O-Meter” is also a good start for conservatives).
