Mitt in Michigan …. It’s going to be difficult. But I’m optimistic. Supporters must remember that tallies in both Iowa and NH were foiled by a liberal base and an in-party tag-team scheme. Neither Huckabee nor McCain have faced a truly conservative voter-base.
I want Mitt to continue to hit hard on the problems in Washington. I want him to remind voters that (fine man that he is yadayadayada) McCain has been part of the problem in Washington …. McCain has been no friend to conservatism; no friend to the issues of immigration, free speech, ethics, lower taxes.
I want Mitt to demonstrate his expertise in economics. He must set his own agenda and refuse to be distracted. He must remain optimistic about the revival of the auto industry market. He must remind voters that, while education and retraining are critical to industry revival, McCain’s trillion-dollar educational reform package is not going to relieve the state’s economy. And no one has yet asked McCain how he’s going to pay for it — ASK!
As for Kos suggesting that dems cross over and vote for Mitt, come on over, kidlets! You crossed-over in NH — so what’s new? The “newness” will be in getting it right this time!
