The McCain campaign just does not want to talk about the economy. In their world view, it’s a bad political issue that with some political maneuvering can be side-stepped. But that ignores the fact that in the real world, the economy is THE issue. Seriously, there is no comprehension on the GOP side over how the failing economy is directly affecting the American people. The Republicans think by going negative they change the subject:
McCain’s course correction reflects a growing case of nerves within his high command as the electoral map has shifted significantly in Obama’s favor in the past two weeks.
“It’s a dangerous road, but we have no choice,” a top McCain strategist told the Daily News. “If we keep talking about the economic crisis, we’re going to lose.”
Stop talking about the economic crisis and you’re going to lose, too.
And, as I write this, the Dow is down over 500 points, so I think, and this is just a guess, that people are still going to be talking about the economy for the next couple weeks…
