McCain is losing on the economy because he is afraid to slam Bush. Don’t slam Bush, slam the financial meltdown and take a stand. O’bama and the media already admit that revenues are going to drop and that a recession is imminent. Their traditional answer of raising taxes to get “more revenue” is disastrous.

Advice from a supporter that is beginning to wane
I want the maverick back. Not the guy that talks about being a maverick and being bipartisan and bringing people together but the guy that IS. Don’t suspend your campaign and don’t phone it in. Continue stumping for the fact that you tried. You went there to try making sure that all parties were atContinue reading “Advice from a supporter that is beginning to wane”
