Still for Brian Schweitzer and a Note on McCain’s Problem


About | Huff | Obama Diary | TALKING POINTS | Way of Abba | Longevity

Brian Schweitzer has fallen off the radar. Even the person who first opened my eyes to his virtues as Barack’s possible running mate has suggested that the Obama nod will go to someone … boring, someone who will not have the capacity to deal with the most pressing problem, the big move on energy, to renewables, not just drill, drill, drill, nuke, nuke, nuke.

So a few of us, comparatively, KNOW that Brian could heat this sucker up. He could talk straight to Republicans. He could talk straight about the electorate. He could frame exactly what Barack is accused of being abstract about in unmistakably clear terms. He could keep everyone busy and no one would need to ask WHY.

That is how transparently clear it is that Schweitzer makes as much sense now as he did when I made this page and this page and this page.

AND NOW TO JOHN MCCAIN:

I am willing to bet that McCain wants Lieberman which is why his people are polling a choice veep candidate and finding out it will be a problem for him.

This should serve to isolate him more and more from the core of the GOP who have been pushing him to play so low these days. Since he may have a tiny trace of guilt and anger about this, the denial of his friend Lieberman will make him say, Wait, whose show is this?

Since he can now look at Barack and the Obama campaign and see nothing but a ratcheting up of attacks on him as worse than Bush, his anger will be increased.

It may result in a damn the torpedoes Lieberman choice in which case this will be more of the same — a referendum on Barack.

Our mission if we choose to accept it is to take the fight to McCain every which way, leaving no vulnerability personal or policy wise unexamined.

Will the McCain campaign denounce Corsi as a liar? Why not.

Will McCain play craps if he is elected? How can we be sure?

How can he be for veterans with his record of negative votes against vets?

How can he escape his early statements declaring cictory in the Iraq war, actually promoting the attack on Iraq from 9/11 on?

The gloves are off. The difference is that we will be stating the truth. McCain will need to continue the Big Lie effort.
