Does McCain Have the 'Stones' To Fight Back?

During their first so-called debate, John McCain stood by passively and allowed Barry Obama to say just about anything he wanted regardless of the truth or accuracy of the statements. If Mr. McCain was betting on the mainstream media (MSM) to point out the inaccuracies and lies, he was placing a losing bet in a rigged game.

Tomorrow, October 7, is round two of the great staged Presidential debates of 2008. Barry Obama, and most likely his trusty teleprompter, will once again face off against John McCain. While it is tempting to take bets on the outcome, I suspect it will be declared an Obama victory and once again McCain will stand around like a tired old man afraid to speak out or attack the lies.

But there is one tactic that Mr. McCain could use that would save his failing campaign: he can fight back!. Rather than relying upon Gov. Palin to do his heavy lifting, it is high time that the so-called "Maverick" get into the game and show the American people that he is not a punching bag for Obama and his buddies in MSM. Rather than relying upon friendly parties in the blogosphere to fight his fights for him, it is long past time the "Maverick" to help himself.

Mr. McCain should realize that there are literally millions of voters who are still looking for a reason to vote for him and not just to vote against Obama. Many of these millions are still searching for a strong voice to speak out against the lies and inaccuracies of the left: actually showing some spine in a face to face debate would go a long way towards convincing these voters that McCain is indeed a viable leader and a clearly better choice than Barry Obama.

At the RNC convention, Sen McCain said "Fight with me. Fight for what's right for our country. Fight for the ideals and character of a free people." In the speech he said he would fight a lot.

Especially more fighting at the end:

I’m going to fight for my cause every day as your President. I’m going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I’m an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith and a little courage, great things are always within our reach. Fight with me. Fight with me.

Fight for what’s right for our country.

Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.

Fight for our children’s future.

Fight for justice and opportunity for all.

Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.

Stand up for each other; for beautiful, blessed, bountiful America.

Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. Nothing is inevitable here. We’re Americans, and we never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.

Good words, but does he mean it? Is it empty rhetoric? From what I've heard about his early years in the Navy, we could use that John McCain again.

Fight Sen McCain, show us that you want it. Fight for this country again. Stand up to those that are trying to destroy us. You went through hell and served honorably in Vietnam. America needs someone that will fight the enemies that try to destroy her, both foreign & domestic.

Sen McCain, if you can't or won't, then at least unleash Palin and let her at 'em. She'll destroy them all given the opportunity. And she'll do it with the darndest smile.

The only fighting tonight was struggling to stay conscious and not die of boredom.

Did I mention it was B-O-R-I-N-G.

well AE I am going to guess that you were disappointed by McCain's performance tonight.

I've seen folks fight harder to avoid picking up the check at lunch.

I hate to say it but things are looking way bleak for McCain and by extension, America.

Disappointed? Egad. I was half asleep at the end. Only thing that kept me awake were the shifting colors on the TV (something minor is wrong with my sat rcvr, so the colors occasionally shift a little bit... red->pink->orange->red).

Oh no... listening to 1280. The Rusty Humphries show just came on (11:06pm CDT). He's time delayed. He's carrying the debate live. It's starting all over again.

Funny thing... Brokaw reminds the audience to restrain themselves with no outbursts. Those of us at home have no such restraints.

Even tho its bedtime, and this would be a great way to put me to sleep, I don't want this getting into my head subconsiously. I'd rather listen to FM static.
