Olbermann promptly demanded Russert's job upon his sad death. Olbermann was threatening to leave msnbc, but he has no network to go to. Tom Brokaw won out in the battle to replace Russert. Thus showing how powerless Olbermann as Obama campaign chair.
1. Talk to your friends and family about the upcoming Presidential race. Encourage them to take serious look at the candidates and what those candidates can do about the serious problems we face in America.
2. Consider volunteering at a local phone bank or going door to door leading up to the election. We have to match the enthusiasm of the Hussienamania.
3. Remember that McCain has been a thorn in Republicans side over the years.
4. Talk about leadership and experience. McCain may not be able to deliver a speech like Obama, but he has served in the Senate as a reformer since Barry Obama was a college boy.

Obama has a record that is full of liberalism and corruption. Because of this a conservative moderate like McCain has a fighting chance. My gut tells me McCain is waiting for the right time to really amp it up, but he seems to be doing some things behind the scenes like meeting with the Log Cabin Republicans and the previously mentioned conservatives of Ohio.
McCain has to establish his credibility among Black voters and young voters. He has too make an effort to reach both. This serves two purposes it could possibly get him some votes in those to groups, but it would also bring exposure.
'McCain meets with top Civil Rights leaders' or 'McCain reaches out to the facebook youtube generation' This could find ways to appeal to moderates. McCain can win if he forces the issues, but he cannot win without rallying strong support from some group and then building on that base. As America gets to know Obama, his base will develope from folks who are sickened equal in three parts by... Obama's fraudulant false claims of 'change'... His blatant liberalism.. and his arrogance. Now I do not think that group will win him this election. This election will be won by him truly connecting with some group of people.

This is great news for McCain. He just needs to get feet on the ground registering folks to vote and pumping people up or he may still lose.
Obama believes about babies what he believes about Iran. Babies are just a tiny threat to Obama.... they do not have one tenth of the strength of a full grown person. We can simply savage them if they survive an attempted abortion. Just like the cowboy diplomat wants to run around mocking Iran as a "tiny" threat.

Americans showed be served notice of Obama's relativism. It may or may not be your cup of of tea, but Barack Obama is a classic relativist. He goes into great detail about how no one can really interpret the Bible so America should just forget about it.
The end of the Clinton Era a came and since Reagan the Republicans had lacked a leader who really embodied their cause. While Bush 41 and Bob Dole are great Americans their was something about neither that truly resonated with the conservative base of the party. Now fast forward to the year 2000 W is running to be the next President. While he lacked enough experience to truly be ok'd for the position of Commander and Chief of the United States Armed forces, he has that charm that reflected the base.
Fast Forward to the year 2008 having had Al Gore and John Kerry as the past two Democrat nominees for President the Democrats are hungry for someone they can really rally behind insert the Jr. Senator from Illinois are inexperienced, left wing, party loyalist. The democrats are thirsty for power and will no doubt back this senator who's campaign is based on nothing more than pleasing whomevers ears are in front of him.
Barack has shown his fundmental dishonesty on hundreds of occasions most recently with his lie about public financing. This has revealed the blind masses are willing to follow him wherever he goes... and he will say whatever there is to be said to get votes. This is why McCain must focus on registering new voters. He must get out and find voters, reach them first and register them. Or Hussein will be the first President whom speaking their middle name is a hate crime.

REGISTER TO VOTE!!!
I do not think this is a bad choice at all, but I think whomever her choses he should get going soon he needs a surge.

REGISTER TO VOTE!!!!
Saturday, June 21, 2008
The way to win this election is going to be voter registration. This what McCain seems to overlook and may eventually be his undoing. Yes he has to win independents, but he also has to win over the new registered voters and create new voters of his own.
Right now the polls are speaking loud and clear.... If you listen you can hear their ever so quiet voice... saying McCain has to win this election.. Barack is not going to lose it....
My gut tells me some time around the Friday after the election I will suck it up and make one final farewell post. If I am thinking clearly enough to tell the truth I believe my thoughts will be something to this tune.
McCain should have run harder during the Democrat Primary. He should have taken that time to get to know the folks in Michigan and Ohio who will be key to a victory if he gets his victory. The McCain Biography tour was a failure. He should have spent this time meeting with conservative leaders telling them where he stands and why his positions best reflect their beliefs. McCain is relying on the base to rally itself which I am not guessing will happen in the numbers that he would need to pull out a victory.
His town hall meetings with Barack are an outstanding idea and they certainly help McCain , but Obama does not want to face the American people and become associated with his worn out liberal ideas he does not need to. McCain is going to somehow need to connect directly with Independents he is trying, but we can judge his success in November.
McCain has to reach out to African-Americans and youth. I am not seeing this happen. I have shown several polls on this website that indicate McCain is doing very well in some regions with African-Americans. Well they will be voting in record numbers this fall and may very well tip the race in Obama's favor. He has to make inroads he has to meet with leaders, campaign with leaders do whatever it takes. If you do not remember anything I ever type remember this... If McCain forfeits the youth and African-American vote he will lose this election.
So now that we have hit the negatives.... what can be done?
Spend money running ads in African American communities on TV and radio. Visit the inner-city. Take Micheal Steele and any other leading African-American Republicans who will go with him.
This may be to forward, but this would help. Coordinate a Country Music get out the vote Rally in the rural areas of Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan. He is going to have to find these votes somewhere.
Start a youth website, where youth can explain why they support him through video uploads and where John McCain can communicate directly to Youth.
The three ideas in my mine are the way to slow down the ever changing, change express.

This is a link to Black GOP websites.... go to this site take a look around and see if there is anything you can do to help the GOP become more inclusive.
McCain has cut into Senator Obama's lead in Colorado. This is a very good sign, my personal perspective was this state would be so far Obama it would have kept trending his way. McCain's campaign has got to show conservatives they want to win.
My personal opinion is that the numbers are there for Senator McCain . He has to rally folks to the polls. This is where I am concerned I have read several articles stating McCain is lagging Bush 04 in terms of targeted get out the vote. If their was ever an election where voter registration is the key it is this one. I think in terms of percentages of people who vote would vote for each candidate come November it will be split... 47.5 to 47.5... but that is not how this election will be won it will be by gettting folks to the polls.
John McCain is facing
1. More Democrats than W did
2. Barack's get out the vote
- this means McCain must do better than Obama is crossover votes(check)
- when indy's ( most likely )
- have as good or better get out the vote efforts than W(I am worried)
1. allow youth to upload videos explaining why you support mccain
2. Have McCain give brief updates and interviews directed at youth
3. encourage youth to register to vote and register their friends to vote.
4. show mccain ads and clips of speeches

Gas has risen from 2.14$ up to 4.03$
Oil prices have risen from 50% up to 138.56$
when looking at the chart remember the Democrats took over at the end of January.
The Governor on Jay Leno
So Barack wants to make us to compete against other nations for jobs, but he wants high taxes on corperations? This is a horrible strategy.
1. Obama has recieved incredibly positive press up until this point and is only this far ahead. As more people start looking for substance in this campaign folks will realize we can win in Iraq and we do not need a tax and spend chicago mafia politician in the white House.
2. The more time that goes by... the less folks will consider W when they are voting. Some will vote this fall for Barack as a protest against W, but I do not think that will be the prevailing thought. These are two candidates that should be look at for their own merit.
*** insided the numbers, an interesting number is arising... in Wisconsin.. McCain is carrying 33% of the black vote. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=42f97d63-cc9e-473b-86bc-11f7fc09d3ae

Tim Pawlenty on why he supports McCain as well as why he is a Republican. He also mentions reaching young voters.
Article on his chances of becoming VP.
At no point has there ever been party that so perfectly represented half of America as the Republican party from 1994, up until the Iraq war. Its ideas of fiscal responsibility and family values resonated with families across America, often mocked as "red-staters". The Iraq war, a sour economy, and a rising deficit have hit the GOP hard. Many of our servicemen come from red-states and are discouraged as we read in our local papers about our neighbors and friends who have died in the war.
We have no sympathy for GOP congress folk getting involved in sex scandals. Tom Delay could have done the movement a favor and kept his hands clean. The economy and its multi-faceted problems are no fault of GOP ideas, but a result of a changing global economy where America must find its place.
The conservative movement should not be stopped, in fact it should push harder.
8 things the GOP should do to remain a viable party
1. every single election fight for African-American votes. Every election on every level.
2. promote school vouchers..
3. Fiscal restraint- once you get to Washington do not spend what we do not have
4. DRILL for oil off the coast... bring that up everyday in both houses
5. run libertarian leaning candidates where they are viable
6. Values... promote them, support them, vote for them, but for crying out loud live them out.
This goes beyond government waste... this is government corruption.
This man has mastered the art of double speak.
Pennsylvanian??? why the heck are you sending this man to Congress?
at least he does not feel any obligation to apologize to the troops for making an election issue out of their service.

or should the Democrats continue to play politics with Iraq?
Friday, June 13, 2008
Dear Mr. Plouffe,
Thank you for responding to our proposal. Just to reiterate, we have proposed at least ten joint town hall meetings once a week until the week before the Democratic Convention begins. As we understand your counter-proposal, you have proposed only one town hall meeting before the Democratic Convention.
In keeping with our original proposal, we are planning a joint town hall meeting in Minnesota next Thursday evening (June 19, 2008). We will hold time on our schedule for joint town halls every Thursday night until the Democratic convention. I hope Senator Obama would reconsider his position and agree to join Senator McCain as early as next week.
We have also today accepted the invitation from Mrs. Ronald Reagan, Lynda Johnson Robb and Luci Baines Johnson to attend town hall meetings in July at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library. As Mrs. Johnson said, these town halls will truly be an opportunity to "deliberate the great issues of our time." Their sponsorship certainly meets our standards for a positive and productive opportunity for voters to interact with the candidates. I hope you will agree.
However, at this moment, we fear that our negotiations over joint town hall meetings are turning into a debate about process. That is exactly what we have always hoped to avoid, and why we proposed a town hall format that would render many of these process issues moot. As Senator Obama has said, he is prepared to meet "anywhere, anytime" for a town hall.
We remain committed to this idea because joint town hall meetings offer the best format for presenting both candidates' visions for our country's future in a substantive way. We have a chance to change the way presidential elections are run and elevate the political dialogue. Americans deserve this kind of opportunity, and we hope that Senator Obama will join us at town hall meetings throughout the summer months.
John McCain sits in as a good a position as possible for being behind. I say this not out of some delusions that a victory will be easy, but these are the key numbers.
McCain has 76% support from Conservatives.... this is a good thing... these voters should jump on board even though they may not agree with McCain on every issue.
secondly and this is where I see the most chance for gain. Obama leads by 28 among moderates. Come one I think those are the voters who were most caught up in Obama's hype.
I better register to vote
heard b'rak talking
I 'bout started walking
to a far off land of low taxation,
but i realized there is no nation
for which to go!!! so I better VOTE!!

A) above all keep Ohio and Florida
1. Keep Virginia and North Carolina
2. Keep Nevada
3. pick up Michigan
4.pick up New Hampshire
You will hear that Barack Obama will compete in Virginia and North Carolina in the final months of the campaign.... Maybe, but I doubt it, if he is in a position that he can spend money in those states most likely he has the election wrapped up.
At the rate these two candidates are going Barack Obama's name will be toxic in the southeast in about a week. All the money in the world will not be able to fix his bad name. Obama is new on the scene and he is not going to be welcome soon.
His message of putting the era of partisanship to rest was beyond false. He is the most divisive politician our country has seen in some time. I think people will have to wonder what exactly his change is... I have not figured it out yet.
Come July-November this will be an election based on issues and you have to believe that with the amount of time McCain and Obama have they can clearly define those issues. McCain and the GOP need to good job of explaining that "Big" oil is a relative term and they do not need to be scapegoated for our governments failures.
Time will tell and Obama has a strong machine, but at the end of the day if McCain can increase his support among women ever so slightly and energize the base he stands a great chance of winning. One thing is for sure Obama's partisan bickering is going to help get the base going and if McCain continues to emphasize his lower taxes we might pull this one out.
* as you can tell if you read this blog it is motivated by whatever is on my mind... that said I hope to keep giving you updates on my electoral outlook.
The good news for McCain is that with the exception of Barack Obama's acceptance speech Obama should not get anymore big bounces in the polls. John McCain needs to continue to put pressure on Obama, stay above 40% in polls, and make a second home in Michigan/Ohio.
I must admit I work at a computer lab where I do most of my blogging and it is killing me to miss John McCain's town hall meeting, oh well gotta make da money.

2. His socialist views on taxes... I will let him do the talking.
lets review he would raise taxes on 100 million Americans, for fairness ... even if it would decrease revenues to the Gov't.
Claims his VP vetters are not working for him... after Jim Johnson (part of his VP search)
is found out to have taken sweetheart loans, from Countrywide... a Mortgage lender whom Obama frequently berates.
Obama attacks countrywide
here is the story
Monday, June 9, 2008
He is giving John McCain an opening in the rust belt. I am beginning to think he may be recognizing that cannot compete in the rust belt. If he tries to win this election by picking up, Colorado, Iowa, New Mexico, and Virginia. While giving McCain Ohio and Michigan. This would leave Pennsylvania up in the air.
Possibly Obama is avoiding the rust belt until he picks a running mate who can help him in the area. We shall see, but as it stands McCain has a very good shot at winning Ohio and Michigan.. If he makes those two pick up he may well be in White House.
Similar to directly talking to terror supporters and his universal health care plan, Obama is more than likely just trying to say things that sound good to those who want "change". It is funny that dusting off the same old liberal ideas that have never accomplished anything is now considered change. Obama ia just trying to say what he thinks will get him office.
This could spell big trouble for Obama in the fall. McCain will benefit from his less partisan image, as it would be almost impossible to see Clinton supporters backing lets say.... George W Bush.
He will take that awful risk, but yet wants to pull out of Iraq despite its drastic improvements. Obama will say any and everything to get elected. It shows his inexperience when he is steadfast to a position such as having open meetings with terror sponsors, but when push comes to shove and he finds out how ridiculous his position really is, he reverts to the same plans George W Bush has had. I feel very confident when this election heads to the fall voters will move further and further from this Barack Obama character.
I am glad Barack got a bounce in the polls I think it shows the excitement Americans feel about the progress we have made in race relations, but I think every American wants to elect the best candidate for president not based on the color of his skin, but on his merits for the the job. Soon we will see only one candidate has the proper experience and vision to lead our country.

John McCain is a war hero.
John McCain is far better than "abortion on demand" Obama
John McCain is clearly better than "capital gains tax" Obama
John McCain is clearly better on energy policy. Leaving it up to the states to decide to drill off their coast or not. This would allow us to time focus on finding other fuels.
John McCain was right about the surge in Iraq.
John McCain knows we must win in Iraq... which means Iraq taking over the country for themselves.
John McCain is right for our country.... we have to accept that!!

2. Mitt Romney
3. Mike Huckabee
4. Jindal Governor of Louisianna
5. Pawlenty Governort of Minnesota
I think Sarah Palin does the most to help get McCain elected, however Romney is just as effective. The reason I have Huckabee and Romney above the other governors... is Jindal and Pawlenty are the future of the party and are not yet ready to move to the top of the ticket. Both could stand to wait a few years and speak at the convention and such. Romney can empty his pockets and help deliver Michigan.
Terry Mcauliffe, Paul Begala, Arianna Huffington, and Lanny Davis. All McCain hating liberals. I call them like I see them and CNN has already been all in for Obama for months this is just the latest example.
Clinton and Obama's campaigns from now and November can try and come together, but it will no happen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjMCcl7dBoI During the campaign Clinton shows her respect for McCain and doubts about Obama.

Head north then head east. It has become apparent that the liberal media believes every state is in play this year for Obama and if he takes a visit it basically turns blue. My suggestion for McCain as a electoral junkie.
Spend a week of visits and tv ads in the North East, give it a try. During that week you can pull all resources out of New Mexico and Colorado. Give it a try see what happens, if you get a positive response maybe folks in those wealthy states will open up their checkbooks so you can afford TV ads. It will help solidify New Hampshire... who knows what it would do with New Jersey, Delaware, Massachusetts, maybe even Maine. It could even help in Virginia and Pennsylvania. If you do take this trip and accompany it with a TV blitz it will surely at least make Obama consider going on the defensive.
- I would forget Iowa, but I think it is important to compete in the Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa area. I think a consistent effort in that area will keep Obama busy.
- McCain must take a trip and hold a rally in Virginia and North Carolina.
- Focus on turning Michigan and New Hampshire red. If he can turn both of those states he will have a great amount of breathing room.
- The biggest advantage McCain has is pretty simple... of the Bush-Kerry map... the only states that look certain to flip are... to Obama- Iowa and Colorado. and to McCain Michigan and New Hampshire. The liberal media can say whatever they want and yes Ohio is going to be the state once again, but the most likely flops are those mentioned above. This means in the final months McCain and Obama can focus on those two states. This mean Gods and Guns, and that has to make McCain feel very good.
food for thought Bush won 286-252... assuming McCain holds ohio he has some breathing room.
I know this is rambling, but a final note.
* I would make a very strong bet that the south including Virginia and North Carolina vote for McCain, I would also bet that Nevada stays red. I would also bet Olberscum, Anderson Cooper, Candy Crowley, Wolf Blitzer, Arianna Huffinton and David Gergen are all crying on Election night.
You have to check this video out.
and take a look at
Obama shows he has no respect for Senator Clinton, but just like Jeremiah Wright, Rezko, Michelle, Bill Clinton, Rev. Moss... Obama's friendship is only as deep as it is politically beneficial. Now that it benefits Obama he and Clinton are on good terms.
I understand his outstanding speaking ability, but you have to look deeper than just the surface. The Senator has a history and it is filled with two things liberal causes and crooked friends. He believes Iran is a tiny threat that we can bully with our military might. This shows his foreign policy is similar to George W Bush's in that it lacks clear understanding of the complexities involved in dealing with foreign policy.
Obama is not ready to be Commander and Chief
This is where conservatives and libertarians confuse me... Obama wants universal health care and while all good hearted Americans want other Americans to have health care this is not the governments place. The government should help encourage health care providers to provide low cost forms of health care. This is not a reason to increase the size of our bloated government.
I am simply calling on those three groups to consider the costs of electing the most spending liberal senator to the presidency.

1. Ohio (20 electoral votes), simply put this state makes his election possible and without it he faces too much of and uphill battle
2. Florida(27), McCain needs to maintain his sizable lead over Obama in this state so he can focues his resources elsewhere... once again if he loses Florida it will be a long night for McCain
3.Virginia(13), McCain can win the election and lose this state however it takes much needed breathing room a way form the candidate. As with Florida McCain has an edge and needs to keep it large enough to discourage Obama from spending resources there as it might also put North Carolina in play.
4.Michigan(17), John McCain needs to make this his number one state to go on the offensive... Bush lost this state twice and it will be an uphill battle, but he must put it in play and have Obama spend his resources in this state. If he wins this state as well as those mentioned above he will be in an excellent position to become our next President.
5.Nevada(5) Nevada is an important state because out west it appears McCain will lose Colorado and New Mexico states that Bush won and losing Nevada would force McCain to depend on Michigan.
honorable mention... New Hampshire(McCain needs to win NH or Nevada) Pennsylvania although I do not think he stands a great chance of winning in Pennsylvania he must make Barack spend resources in the keystone state. also Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa... a victory in any of these three state is extremely helpful.
1. Pennsylvania(21), Obama needs to establish an early lead and move this election to other states.
2.Ohio(20), If Obama can force Ohio into play he can drain McCain's resources and open up for a possible blowout.
3. Iowa(7), Iowa is looking like a Obama lock and he needs to keep it that way... this will be one of the easy pick ups from John Kerry's performance.
4. Michigan(17), Obama must defend Michigan if he plans on winning the election losing Michigan would set him in a deep hole.
5. Colorado(9), is an important state and early polls show it will be a pick up for Obama.
honorable mention... Virginia, Florida,New Mexico, California, Oregon, Minnesota, wisconsin
if the election were held to day I would predict.....
John McCain wins 286 - 252... McCain flips Michigan red.
Tuesday, June 3, 2008
2. John McCain continues to perform well with African American voters, compared to most Republicans. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=6e81fa91-09e4-4f8a-8392-58ac790c0a58 McCain starts off close in Massachusetts. Obama leads 46-41.
3. Can McCain win the Bush strongholds.... lose Colorado and New Mexico.... but gain New Hampshire and Michigan.... if so He is the President.
4. is there a tape of Michelle Obama going off on a racist rant... some believe there is..
5. How will the foreign policy debate shape up and what will Iraq look like in November.

As America braces for a tough general election fight... McCain is laying out his message and I think it is the truth.
