Obama Takes Broadside Blast From Left

… “But his record suggests that he is incapable of ushering in any kind of change I’d like to see. It is one of accommodation and concession to the very political powers that we need to reign in and oppose if we are to make truly lasting advances.”

… “Obama’s own plan has been widely criticized for leaving health care industry administrative costs in place and for allowing millions of people to remain uninsured. “Sicko” filmmaker Michael Moore ridiculed it saying, ‘Obama wants the insurance companies to help us develop a new health care plan-the same companies who have created the mess in the first place.'” 

… “Once I started looking at the votes Obama actually cast, I began to hear his rhetoric differently. The principal conclusion I draw about “change” and Barack Obama is that Obama needs to change his voting habits and stop pandering to win votes. If he does this he might someday make a decent candidate who could earn my support. For now Obama has fallen into a dangerous pattern of capitulation that he cannot reconcile with his growing popularity as an agent of change.”

From Me: I think McCain will be able to take Obama to task on conservative issues as well.  Obama is not all that he appears to be, and voters still have six more months to decide if his rhetoric has any substance.

    If McCain would stick to an all conservative message- social, fiscal, and environmental, he would wipe the floor with Obama. However, that’s just the problem. He is making a distinct pitch to the left with his plea towards left-leaning websites and with his environmental cap-and-trade speech. McCain isn’t changing what he’s done for the past 20 years, and is the same reason that so many on the right haven’t liked him very much. He needs his base to win, and barring some bizarre outcome out of the DNC, he will still need them.

    Right now, McCain is his own worst enemy. He is isolating his base through his pitch to the middle. He may win independents, but he can’t count on conservatives to vote for him in November out of fear of the other candidate.

    Don’t get me wrong, I hope he wins, but I wouldn’t advise him to run a campaign the way he is. I think it is entirely ineffective.
