MayBee - I certainly don't want to go Michelle Malkin on any candidate or issue. But, sometimes, there is really plain old ordinary anger and frustration. I think many of the "folks" are feeling that right now. Along with another emotion - fear.

John McCain can either tap into this energy or he can lay down and let it run over him, while Obama sprints easily to the finish line.

McCain admitted that he was broken in Vietnam. He cannot stand up for himself, or when he can, it is with great effort of will and in a friendly crowd.

At least he will resist the growth of government and not appoint leftists to the bench. He will also resist the socialization of our health insurance system.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Luntz just previewed an "attack ad" that was tested a few days ago as one of the highest rated ads to date and put out by "Let Freedom Ring." It will begin airing in the next few days. It makes the point that when the Bush tax cuts are not renewed, 100% will get a tax hike.

I've been trying to make that point for months, ever since I heard that stupid Tyson woman say that Obama was only raising taxes on those above $250,000, cutting for 95% and returning the tax rates to the Clinton level, like that was something we should all celebrate.

Why hasn't McCain pointed this out? It has been out there for months.

And you are helping them.

Well, thank you for the backhanded compliment, but my venting is not going to help the media. They are beyond help. Do you think the media or either candidate gives a hoot in hell what I think? As much as I might like to be that self-important, I live in the real world.

MayBee

I completely understand that, but taking it out on one's own candidate seems counter productive.
He can go negative. He has gone negative. He's gotten criticized for it, but he's done it. He can hit Obama hard. He can't go bat-shit crazy, though.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

there's a lot of hyperbole out there, even on freerepublic.

Steve Diamond is a Freeper. Who knew? Have you told him yet?

Cecil Turner

Yes, Bush and the Republicans certainly have screwed the pooch this time, haven't they?

Yeah, first they created Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, then they enacted that CRA abortion, then they expanded it to mandate a trillion dollars worth of subsidy to subprime mortgages, then they blocked all efforts to enact legislation allowing regulation of GSEs, and finally browbeat regulating agencies when they tried to blow the whistle on it.

Oh, wait . . . Democrats did all that, didn't they? (And then tried to censor the truth from coming out . . . for shame!)

Sara (Pal2Pal)

He can't go bat-shit crazy, though.

Telling your vocal and passionate supporters they should be more respectful and not be afraid of an Obama presidency isn't bat-shit crazy? It is lunacy.

Look I'll admit that some of the confirmed stuff seems over the top; I wouldn't put it past the Democrats to put some mobys or sock puppets into these gatherings. But one really has to ask considering the breath of Osama's affiliations (from ACORN & Ayers, to Hamas, FARC, Code Pink, et al) Well either he's a cretinous fool, (that's more
Joe Biden's piece of the action) or he's a committed leftist, opposed to practically all of America's institutions; either way he's not fit to be dog catcher. Obama and Ayers by extension seem to following a variant of the second wave of the electoral left in South America; what they failed to gain with the AK-47 they gained through the ballot box, in the case of Chavez, Morales,
Lugo, Kirschner, and possibly the FMNL candidate in El Salvador. Which means it will become that much harder to remove him from power.

If he had a verifiable record of reform, which could help us in these volatiletimes; that would go some way toward ameliorating these concerns. Yet to be charitable, he seems more like James Garfield, the amiable evangelical politico involved in the Credit Mobilier who rose to power against the Stalwarts of Blaine.

MayBee

Lunacy?
Has it been lunacy when Bill Clinton has been complimentary to Bush?
Was it lunacy when Hillary Clinton or Bill Clinton complimented McCain?

Now being respectful is lunacy. We are about to become Kos.

Sara,

My worry is that demoralized McCain supporters (and I'm not saying there's no reason to be frustrated) help convince other voters to stay home. Readers of this blog, and others. To read Hot Air you would have thought the election was over weeks ago. My fear is that you are indirectly encouraging others to give up. How can we stop Obama if we give up because we're peeved at McCain? It makes no sense. Didn't we learn our lesson in 2006? Letting the other guys have a go - when they're as ruthless and morally bankrupt as the current Dem leadership - does not help our situation.

Orwell said that pacifism is objective pro-fascism. It is the same today. Not fighting for a McCain win is objective pro-Obama behavior. You are helping our enemies. Sorry, but that's how I see it.

MayBee

"Just doing my part in the fight against ignorance and defending the prosperity of this great nation against Republican elitism and corruption."

Ha ha, what a dork thou art.

Listen, let's give McCain the benefit of the doubt; he's been savvy on one or two occasions, and might be so again. If he thinks it's a good idea to defuse the "McCain crowds are angry and mean" meme, maybe he's right. He's said he'll take off the gloves in the last debate, and with his warm fuzzy talk now he might be lulling Obama into complacency for a major broadside on Wednesday night. We absolutely do not know if McCain has something up his sleeve, a bombshell waiting to drop (it's not impossible). I think it most unikely that he doesn't want to race.

I think it most unlikely that he doesn't want TO WIN the race, is what I meant.

Troopergate: the volcano spewed out a pebble...

"I find that, although Walt Monegan’s refusal to fire Trooper Michael Wooten was not the sole reason he was fired by Gov. Sarah Palin, it was likely a contributing factor to his termination as a commissioner of public safety. In spite of that, Governor Palin’s firing of Commissioner Monegan was a proper and lawful exercie of her constitutional and statutory authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads."

Wow, damming as hell.....

Is there anyone in America who doesn't know that Obama attended Wright's church for two decades? They both got a pass because both are black.

If McCain brought Wright up now, whose vote would he change?

Many people are not aware of Ayers, so that's a little different.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Morris nailed it tonight. Competing forces, anger vs. fear. But he attributes the anger toward Republicans for causing the financial mess (which makes me angrier) and he attributes the fear to fear of an Obama presidency.

He thinks that the Ayers/Rezko/Wright influences are being heard and that Obama is "in trouble" over this, ie, the electorate is afraid of an Obama presidency. I think so as well, but it will go nowhere when McCain says calm down, there is no reason to be afraid.

He won't go after his colleagues in Congress in order to deal with the anger and he refuses to recognize the reasons for the fear. What's left?

ben

I think McCain might have a good strategy here...by saying at ONE rally be respectful to Obama it doesn't mean he will say it at EVERY rally, but he gets on record as having said it. If he says it continuously that would be really dumb.

I voted last week for McCain and Palin, in the essential state of Ohio. I didn't want to take the chance of being hit by a semi before election day.

Pofarmer

Sarah Palin just had to move a campaign stop from a stadium to a racetrack to accomodate all the folks who want to see her. In contrast, Biden just drew 1400 folks in the State Capital and they wouldn't even say the crowds in St. Joe and Liberty(KC suburb). If the media were even remotely honest, it looks to me like I know who has the momentum here. I'd hardly call Sarah damaged goods. She's playing by McCain's rules, and I think most folks know that. If they lose I think she goes off the stronger for having been exposed to national politics.

centralcal

Too true, Hit!

Thank you, Pofarmer, for making my point about "damaged goods" much better than my lame attempt at it.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Reality bites Sara; at the moment it's biting you, and you're biting us. Angry Republicans-- great fodder for Obama ads.

I'm not biting anyone. I stated my opinion and I'm angry, so what? I'm not expecting any support from here, nor have I asked for any. That doesn't mean I care to be insulted though.

I am very tired of fighting this fight. First in 2004, again in 2006, and now in 2008. McCain has just made it infinitely harder. Everyone has his/her breaking point. If I haven't reached mine yet, then I'm only hanging on by an eyelash. McCain still has my fear of an Obama presidency going for him, but fear is an emotion I've worked very hard to overcome in the last few PTSD years and I don't welcome having to hang on to it in order not to reach the breaking point. I've put too much hard work in to achieving just the opposite.

Hey, Ben, where the hell does this AP story from 9 minutes ago come from


Alaska panel finds Palin abused power in firing By MATT APUZZO, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 30 minutes ago


ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A legislative committee investigating Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has found she unlawfully abused her authority in firing the state's public safety commissioner. The investigative report concludes that a family grudge wasn't the sole reason for firing Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan but says it likely was a contributing factor


Found it on Hot Air.

But, they ain't biased.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

It is already in the international press as Palin abused her power, even though that isn't really what it says at all. And no one even mentions that this body that issued the report isn't even the one with jurisdiction.

Ann

I think two years of this unending carp has gotten on all our nerves. I am just glad to see that JOM is still the finest place to meet real Americans that love their country, have principals and want the best for her. I have no doubts either that we would all crab a pitchfork if we have too. :)

Let's just take the first step of holding our nose for McCain or we will be holding our nose forever with Zero.

I just spent the day in the underground world of Democrat Ohio and it is not pretty. The SOS of Ohio can't be reached, the Board of Elections wanted to fight 2004, all over again, with me. I tried to get hold of the AG and after an hour of being switched to every conceivable dept. they transfered me to the AG organized crime dept. where they asked me what Acorn was! I could go on and on but we a fight ahead and we better fight.

kim jane il

It is already in the international press as Palin abused her power, even though that isn't really what it says at all.


I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a)... [which] provides....

[E]ach public officer holds office as a public trsut, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation fo that trust....

link

Pofarmer

What a schizophrenic statement.

Finding Number One
For the reasons explained in section IV of this report, I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act. Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) provides

The legislature reaffirms that each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust.

Finding Number Two
I find that, although Walt Monegan’s refusal to fire Trooper Michael Wooten was not the sole reason he was fired by Governor Sarah Palin, it was likely a contributing factor to his termination as Commissioner of Public Safety. In spite of that, Governor Palin’s firing of Commissioner Monegan was a proper and lawful exercise of her constitutional and statutory authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads.

No wonder people don't want to run for office. What sane person would?

Pofarmer

In other words, there is no evidence she did anything untoward, but she could have, and we don't like that sort of stuff around here.

Sara:

"That doesn't mean I care to be insulted though."

I'm sure MayBee doesn't care to be insulted either. Reality is a choice between holding your nose and voting for McCain or this, per Russ Douthat, as quoted over at The Corner:

The convergence of an economic crisis and complete Democratic control of Washington should alarm even those conservatives eager to wash their hands of the GOP. The best reason for even the most disaffected right-winger to root for a McCain victory is simple: To the extent that much of the progressive agenda is a program in search of a crisis to justify its implementation, an election that delivers a liberal candidate who's adored by the media to White House, gives him huge majorities in both houses of Congress, and presents him with a worldwide state of emergency in which to govern, has the potential to be not just another loss for conservatives, but a once-in-a-generation defeat.
Anger makes people feel powerful, when faced with events they cannot control. If Obama is elected, such circumstances will not improve.

Considering how many people know exactly how McCain should go about winning this election, you'd think it would be a veritable cakewalk.

Can I again commend Charlie's AT article?

Sometimes, if I'm puzzled by someone's actions, I like to ask myself "if he's really smarter than I am, why would he be doing what he's doing?"

You can learn a lot that way. Unfortunately, the American Chattering Classes often operate on the opposite assumption: "if I don't see the point of this, that other guy must be an idiot."

McCain may be wrong in what he's doing right now. For all we know he may be headed to a Mondalian defeat. The polls don't look good. But things don't look any worse than they did for him one year ago in the primaries.

God bless Dean Barnett and I am on my knees for his recovery and I am comfortable enough in my own skin to say without hesitating that I Love Dean Greatly -- but it was just about this time last year that Dean was holding a contest at Hugh Hewitt's for the reader who could accurately predict the date when McCain was going to drop out of the race, so sure was he (as were we all) that the exit was a matter of when not if.

Ooops.

If McCain had a nickel for every piece of advice some pundit or blogger or commenter gave him that sounded good at the time and was offered in all sincere earnestness but would have been counterproductive to his campaign, he could make Cindy sign a pre-nup protecting his fortune.

Right - you mean those Republicans on the Legislative committee that Sarah Palin smacked down? Yeah - they are probably highly bi-partisan.

Here is some interesting stuff from TrooperGate:

MR MONEGAN (page23):... Pertaining to the moose...if you wanted criminal charges brought against Wooten for actually pulling the trigger on a technicality...

OK - so he pulled the trigger on the gun that killed the moose when he did not possess the proper license and this is just a technicality???

He then goes on to state interesting assumptions:

"the wife, it was her permit. She willingly allowed someone else to use it."

No information presented on this, so it is all left up to assumptions. I would assume the opposite: a drunk with a gun could not be told to stop and not shoot the moose by a wife who was in a troubled marriage. Given the RECORDED FACTS, this is a much more reasonable assumption.

He then goes on to state more "threats":

...where it was butchered by the governor's father. ...there are people also involved in this incident that therotically could also be charged

So again, without any stated FACTS, the governor's father knew it was shot improperly and should be punished. I think it is much more plausible that Wooten or his wife did not tell him at all.

We now have documented evidence that Monegan knew of a crime and actively attempted to suppress it. HMMMM...

That would be reason enough for me to fire him.

SunnyDay

I'm confused - why was the tasering ok this time? If it's bad to taser criminals, isn't it bad to taser children? what am I missing?

MayBee

hit and run -- yes.

I will always be grateful to McCain for- when he had been so difficult for so long with the Bush admin and had all kinds of credibility with the left and the media- for using that to urge we stay and win in Iraq.

It was not easy, and it was right. He'd be out of the campaign if it had gone differently. However, he'd still likely be in the campaign if he'd urged a pull out. If he was only about winning the Presidency, he could have suggested withdrawal like everyone else did.

He was tough on one very very important thing.
Be over him if you must be, but he earned my vote through that act alone. He fought for the right thing in the toughest way when it mattered most.

You know, the media is really, really pissing me off. You don't even have to go back to Bush to find that hatred. The left has said some horrible things about Sarah Palin. They have been on national television talking about the fear they feel if she were to become VP. Some dried up, ugly whore talked about her being gang raped by blacks. Betty White called her a bitch. Matt Damon, Cybil Sheppard, Madonna, and the list goes on and on. Pumping out the hatred for a woman whose only crime is she is a republican who chose life instead of an abortion. If a few republicans state they are afraid of an Obama presidency, because of his policies and the people he has been friends with, not because of his skin color, then so be it. Johnny Mac probably had to call them on it, but it sure does smack of a double standard. One republicans always have to play by because of our media. Did I mention I am really, really pissed at the media?

SunnyDay:

Look again at the letter McCain wrote to Obama when Obama balked at ethics reform.

Yes, I'm sorry I have to go back that far in time for such an example.

But at this point it's not about him not being willing to attack Obama, or attack a Dem.

I don't claim to know or understand what McCain is doing here. I won't even claim to know that he's doing the right thing. I won't claim to know that he will eventually hit Obama squarely on his glass jaw.

But the lack of hitting, right now, isn't evidence that anyone else knows that he won't do it, either.

The "McCain needs to attack attack attack" theme has been persistent since May at least.

And it has sounded good on paper (yeah, that makes sense, I know, sound-paper) each step of the way.

Funny thing happened, though. In August, McCain didn't attack so much as he began to ridicule. Celebrity. Empty. And the polls swung in his direction. He picked Palin. The convention. Woohoo!

We had a momentary lapse of criticism of McCain. Hey, he's doing all right.

Then the economy keeled over.

Well.

Now McCain is back to being a spineless idjit who doesn't know one thing about campainging, and probably doesn't even want to win anyway.

Until something happens that gives him a boost.

And then something else happens that swings it to Obama.

And then something else....and something else....
