McCain makes bipartisan pitch as leader for all

By LIZ SIDOTI, Associated Press Writer

“The GOP nominee was making an aggressive play for voters from across the political spectrum — Republicans, independents and Democrats. And even as he preached bipartisanship, McCain served up Republican dogma to the willing crowd, on abortion, taxes, national security, oil drilling.

His trick was to appeal to his conservative supporters without turning off independents.”

Once again, the press reveals what they think of Republicans:  a mass of stary eyed drones ready and willing to follow our leaders uncritically.  Again, thanks for the news.  Then this word, ‘trick’.  I could understand “The trick” here, but “His trick”? 

“On the convention’s fourth and final night, McCain’s campaign transformed the stage at the Xcel Energy Center to put him in a setting in which he typically performs best.”-Oh, did this same reporter reveal to us that Obama performs best in a Greek temple? 

Finally we’re to the jabs that lured us into reading the article only to find that she even admits that there weren’t many of them.  The list that she does come up with is far from personal attacks or low blows.  After all, this is a campaign.  If their differences didn’t matter, then why were we even watching?

“For all his talk of reaching across the aisle, McCain got in his jabs at Obama. After all, there are only two months until Election Day. He said Obama would raise taxes, close markets, increase government spending, eliminate jobs. He criticized Obama on energy, health care, and education policies.

The audience was clearly hungry for it: They booed Obama after every criticism, though there were relatively few.”
