Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

McCain: “Housing important to you? don’t vote for me”

In January, McCain made it clear that voters who felt the economy was the most important issue shouldn’t vote for him. He’ll understand:

“Even if the economy is the, quote, number one issue, the real issue will remain America’s security,” [McCain] said. “If it’s not the most important issue in the minds of many voters, America’s security will remain the number one issue with me. And if they choose to say, ‘Look, I do not need this guy because he’s not as good on home loan mortgages,’ or whatever it is, I understand that. I will accept that verdict. I am running because of the transcendent challenge of the twenty-first century, which is radical Islamic extremism, as you know.”


How clear does that get?

The only challenge John McCain cares about is the challenge of radical Islamic extremism. That is why he is running for President.

He doesn’t care about your house. He doesn’t care about your mortgage. He only cares about Islamic Extremism. That is his sole issue.

And if he doesn’t even understand the fundamentals of his key issue, why is ANYONE surprised that he doesn’t know anything about anything else?

McCain said that you shouldn’t vote for him if you’re concerned about his ability to understanding housing issues.

I hope Team Obama picks up this old quote and uses it early and often in its continued attacks on out-of-touch McCain.
