In a move known to the majority of dumped boyfriends/girlfriends McCain who found himself down in the polls and heart-broken goes for a classic “bitter ex” defense: “No, I broke up with him“:
Politico: “The national media has written us off.,” McCain says in excerpts released by the campaign. “Senator Obama is measuring the drapes, and planning with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid to raise taxes, increase spending, take away your right to vote by secret ballot in labor elections, and concede defeat in Iraq. But they forgot to let you decide. My friends, we’ve got them just where we want them.”
Allies are calling this “hitting the ‘reset’ button” on the campaign, with McCain reemerging after a long Sunday strategy session with a feisty tack that uses candor and humor, at a time when his rallies have become known for raucous rage and clumsy attacks.
But it’s more like hitting the panic button.
I think it’s more like hitting the delusion button – if we pretend that we are going to win eventually, then we will win eventually – yes, it appears as if we are losing, but, my friends, it was actually our plan all along: screw up the economy, let Obama ride his economic expertise to the large lead in the polls, and then strike back! So no worries, my friends, it was all part of the original McCain strategy – sit back and enjoy the show!
