I'm listening to McCain's speech and I'm in shock. McCain said in his speech today "I strongly disagreed with the Bush administration's mismanagement of the war in Iraq." Um, wow. That to me is the most shocking admission I've heard from a high ranking republican. He said this to a republican crowd and their first reaction was silence. This is what will hurt McCain oddly enough. His line is the line for the democrats, not the republicans. He's telling his core that they person they elected and supported for 8 years was wrong. Ouch. How does Bush support and those who like Bush support McCain with statements like this? I like McCain, but I can see now. He can't win this. He alienates his base and yet doesn't crossover enough to excite anyone else. His message is mixed. And he has to fight 2 battles, he has to say he's not Bush and he's better than Obama. But to say he's not Bush as bluntly as he says it is a bit of a smack in the face to the republicans who all supported Bush. Wow. Obama is going to win this. He really is. I'm in shock. It's going to be easier than I thought.
