I Say Unleash Both Of Them!

How McCain Wins


New York Times

(snipet from the article)

With respect to his campaign, McCain needs to liberate his running mate from the former Bush aides brought in to handle her — aides who seem to have succeeded in importing to the Palin campaign the trademark defensive crouch of the Bush White House. McCain picked Sarah Palin in part because she’s a talented politician and communicator. He needs to free her to use her political talents and to communicate in her own voice.
I’m told McCain recently expressed unhappiness with his staff’s handling of Palin. On Sunday he dispatched his top aides Steve Schmidt and Rick Davis to join Palin in Philadelphia. They’re supposed to liberate Palin to go on the offensive as a combative conservative in the vice-presidential debate on Thursday.
That debate is important. McCain took a risk in choosing Palin. If she does poorly, it will reflect badly on his judgment. If she does well, it will be a shot in the arm for his campaign.
In the debate, Palin has to dispatch quickly any queries about herself, and confidently assert that of course she’s qualified to be vice president. She should spend her time making the case for McCain and, more important, the case against Obama. As one shrewd McCain supporter told me, “Every minute she spends not telling the American people something that makes them less well disposed to Obama is a minute wasted.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

I agree with this above, this makes me very happy, let Sarah be Sarah! She’s a kick butt conservative. Don’t try to rein her in. Her conservatism and patriotism will shine through. When she started she was doing great, if they have been trying to reign her in like they want McCain to do I am agsint that for either of them.

McCain too is at his best when he lets his passionate side shine through.His debate at Saddleback was his best and that night he did not hold back. I liked this last debate but he could have said more, hit harder and maybe he was holding back too.

The best ads McCain ran that we all loved where the hard hitting kind too.

In my opinion this is not the normal election, we are up against a man that is the most evil from the left running for President and we need to have the take no prisoner attitude with the left always.

Bush wasn’t a Conservative and we all knew that, but he did, and tried to do, some good things. He just refused to fight and/or articulate his positions to the American people. Palin will fight, turn her loose and let her do what comes naturally.

SARAH PALIN DID JUST FINE ...then "they" thought "they'd" HELP her....DON'T FIX WHAT ISN'T BROKEN PEOPLE!
LET HER BE HERSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely right WT. Sarah needs to be Sarah. She is loved because she is genuine and original. She is a real conservative and that does not need to be reined in or amended. She IS the McCain campaign.

Sarah Palin is a shot in the arm to us conservatives who have been disappointed since 1988. Sarah brings a true conservative agenda to a presidential campaign and she does so with articulation and spunk. Don't let the Bush handlers tell her to tone it down. She freely expresses the values and wishes of traditional Middle America and she has come on as our standard bearer. Leave her alone.
