So whatever happened, guys? You all were so sure..so sure...you created an entire raving Michelle Obama to fit the dream. But alas.

"Instead of praying for Bigfoot to ride out of the Pacific Northwest in a UFO bearing the Michelle Obama tape, maybe you guys should engage Barack Obama on the issues. Try explaining to the American people why your guy McCain and the Republican Party have a great plan for the country. Tell us why you deserve to retain control of the White House. Defend President George W. Bush and defend his achievements. Explain why they are worth preserving and indeed continuing. Let us know why you’re better than Obama and the Democrats. Try winning an election on issues, not mud-slinging.

"Or are you afraid?"

Nah the October surprise is the attack on Iran. Wow if the voters decide this election on another pulpit speech we deserve our future.

Curse the pulpit in that dreaded church. It is the home of the Anti-Christ.

Why in the world would they put it out now IF they actually had it?

Some advice; Keep your day job and don't dabble in political strategery.

Yup.

But don't hold your breath.
Republican posters here have almost NO enthusiam for their candidate, so attacking Obama is their ONLY possible approach - and since few here are really knowledgable enough on the issues to actually argue the issues, they are left with the necessity of attacking Obama on a personal level, usually by simply copying and pasting dubious junk they have seen elsewhere on the web.

The issue isn't when they would put it out, duh. The issue is "maybe you guys should engage Barack Obama on the issues. Try explaining to the American people why your guy McCain and the Republican Party have a great plan for the country. Tell us why you deserve to retain control of the White House. Defend President George W. Bush and defend his achievements. Explain why they are worth preserving and indeed continuing. Let us know why you’re better than Obama and the Democrats.

Oh, never mind.

And apparently, this is my day job

And how is it a strategy to ask that voters evaluate candidates' positions on issues with intelligence and reason? How sad that such an idea is novel to you.
