    It's about time!!!

    McCain Plans Fiercer Strategy Against Obama

    Sen. John McCain and his Republican allies are readying a newly aggressive assault on Sen. Barack Obama's character, believing that to win in November they must shift the conversation back to questions about the Democrat's judgment, honesty and personal associations, several top Republicans said.
    With just a month to go until Election Day, McCain's team has decided that its emphasis on the senator's biography as a war hero, experienced lawmaker and straight-talking maverick is insufficient to close a growing gap with Obama. The Arizonan's campaign is also eager to move the conversation away from the economy, an issue that strongly favors Obama and has helped him to a lead in many recent polls.

    "We're going to get a little tougher," a senior Republican operative said, indicating that a fresh batch of television ads is coming. "We've got to question this guy's associations. Very soon. There's no question that we have to change the subject here," said the operative, who was not authorized to discuss strategy and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
    Another site I post on has been emailing the McCain campaign about getting tough. Maybe it helped!

    A senior aide said the campaign will wait until after Tuesday's debate to decide how and when to release new commercials, adding that McCain and his surrogates will continue to cast Obama as a big spender, a high taxer and someone who talks about working across the aisle but doesn't deliver.

    Two other top Republicans said the new ads are likely to hammer the senator from Illinois on his connections to convicted Chicago developer Antoin "Tony" Rezko and former radical William Ayres, whom the McCain campaign regularly calls a domestic terrorist because of his acts of violence against the U.S. government in the 1960s.

    No kidding, but I always felt that McCain would wait until the right time to pull out the big guns.

    Bring in the ROVE!:eek:;)

    I only hope the American public wakes up to this guy and his ideology before it is too late. How can so many people line up voluntarily for somebody who wants to stick their hand in your pocket?

    It'll be funny to watch this not work. Obama's resources are much more effective than McCain's, these ads wont do enough to erase the problems McCain is facing.

    Obama About to Be Hit on Questionable Associates

    October 04, 2008 10:28 AM

    The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the FBI is looking into whether or not former Obama pal Tony Rezko -- convicted in June of attempted extortion, mail and wire fraud, and aiding and abetting bribery -- paid for all or part of $90,000 worth work on the Northwest Side Chicago home of Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

    Rezko apparently liked helping out his politician pals on their real estate transactions. As you may recall, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and Rezko's wife, Rita, bought adjacent properties in a controversial and complicated series of real estate transactions, one of which Obama later called "boneheaded" because it might cause people to think he'd been done a favor in exchange for something untoward, which he denies is the case. Rezko at the time was under federal investigation.

    A federal judge Wednesday froze more than $100,000 of Rezko's cash. Rezko's sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 28
    To wit: the Washington Post reports that Sen. John McCain's campaign -- convinced that the maverick thing alone isn't working -- is about to open up a can of whoop-ass on Obama with a focus on his personal associations.

    Probably too late.

    The media will downplay this and turn it against the Republicans. It will turn from the intended and valid issue of UhBama associations and ideology to a mean spirited and negative attack by the Republicans. The Message will become a negative for the Republicans before it actually has a chance to show the American voters the REAL Uh-Bama as a SOCIALIST.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    Was the situation desperate when the Doolittle Raid was devised?

    Was the situation desperate when during the Midway battle?

    Was the situation desperate when the Soviets orbited Sputnik?

    The fact of the matter is the situation for McCain and for America is desperate.

    Obama chose to associate with his hate America America Pastor

    Obama chose to associate with his hate America community organizer Bill Ayers

    Obama chose to associate with the Hate America Islamic follower Farrahkan

    Obama chose to associate with the hate America PAC called Acorn

    Obama chose to associate with the likes of Rezko

    And you want this fucking clown in the Oval Office? Some day you'll realize that Obama wants to keep the likes of you on the Plantations, in chains with the Massa's boot pinning your neck to the ground.

    But hey don't take my word for it....take his...http://www.scoopthis.org/2008/09/you...in-palin-2008/

    as the hate America pastor Wright would say....The Chickens have come home to roost!

    Not too late by a long shot.

    Betwwen now and three weeks out is the time to break out the big guns.

    McCain waited for the right time. He gave us a little teaser to think about over the weekend, and in the next two weeks most of America will see what most of us here already knew what Obama is all about.
