Most of the conservatives are usually too busy for this sort of thing cause they are working or out protecting this country. I think alot of people know whats at stake here. I could be wrong but I think they will surprise everyone.
I could not agree with you more. I was born and raised about 7 miles as the crow flies from the White House in Arlington, Virginia and have had an up close and personal view of Politics in this Country for over 40 years. Trying to be as objective as possible, I think Obama has truly peaked to early. I can't stand either Obama or Hillary but will admit that I think she would have had a better chance of beating McCain that Obama. Remember that Obama's best days were way back in February when he won 11 primaries in a row. Sine then (March-June) Hillary beat him in ALL the most important swing states i.e. PA, Ohio, etc. The reason she won those states is that blue-collar white American's are not comfortable with the idea of him being our President. I don't think it is because they are racist or biggots, just that they don't like him. I could name a few black conservatives who I could live with as President. My point here is that the Democrats ended up picking the candidate who LOST momentum at the end of the primary season.
Finally, I think Obama's oratory skills are OVERRATED. He really offers no substance in his speaches.
Lastly, McCain should spend the final days of his campaign focusing on his DRILL, DRILL, DRILL message. The Democrats left for their 5 week summer vacation on Friday WITHOUT even allowing an up or down vote in the House of representatives on opening up the US continental shelf to drilling. Maybe we should have every trucker in this country march on DC to protest the fact that they have failed our country. Hey, maybe even the mainstream media would cover it
