Okay, somebody on the McCain campaign really needs to get a clue. Trying to run on the economy is not going to work (and isn’t working) because it’s really hard to draw a distinction between McCain and Obama; they’re both, unfortunately, pro government intervention. And it’s a given that McCain wins on defense and foreign policy issues, but since all’s seemingly quiet on the western front, that’s a non-issue to many. What it comes down to is this (and I’m paraphrasing Michael Graham at NRO last week): if this election is made out to be a referendum on George W. Bush, Obama wins. If the election is made out to be a referendum on Obama, McCain wins.
So, it needs to be about Obama, and it needs to be John McCain who makes the case against him (although Sarah Palin is doing a fantastic job). And, seriously, it’s an embarrassment of riches:
- Gateway Pundit has information on Obama’s ties to persons of questionable character (and a bonus clip of BO talking about “white greed”).
- Michelle Malkin has info galore about Obama’s connection to the fraudsters at are ACORN.
- Patterico talks about Obama’s connections to a socialist party.
