OBAMA'S FALL FROM GRACE
When you first date someone, you tell them what they want to hear. After a few months, the real you comes out and a breakup ensues. Get ready America because that's what will happen if Obama wins.History reveals that leaders viewed as Saviors always fall back down to earth and the people become disillusioned.
PERCEPTION MAY WIN THE DAY
I still think the race is closer than the polls say but ... McCain may lose because of the old cliché "Republicans are out of touch with the economy." In fairness, Democrats are supposedly clueless about foreign policy but the "war on terror" is not what's in the news this election cycle. Elections are won on perception, not reality, and it looks like that may be the case tomorrow.
MCCAIN FAILED TO COMMUNICATE
First let me say that I don't think Obama is an amazing speaker like Clinton or Reagan. In my opinion he lacks heart and his words sound scripted and empty. Judging by the crowds at his rallies however, I know many people disagree.Now with that said - let's discuss McCain. He did a poor job communicating his ideas to America. He did not present a convincing message why he should be President. Contrast this with Gingrich'sContract with America over a decade ago in support of Congressional candidates. Whether you agreed with it or not, it was a very effective national strategy that worked in motivating the electorate to vote Republican.
Joe voter is asking how McCain's economic policies differ from Bush's? The reality is that the economy will recover but McCain tried saying that and he was painted as out of touch. Whether Obama's policies are good for the country doesn't matter to Joe Voter because he is hurting and when people hurt they want "hope" and "change."
