Now, TODAY,- THIS DAY- is the time to Hit McCain... AND HARDSubmitted by LibertyFirst on Wed, 01/30/2008 - 08:55
Now, TODAY, THIS DAY, is the time to Hit McCain, and hit him HARD. Why ? and why McCain ?
On a day of confrontation such as this (the Calif. debate tonight), when McCain thinks it is HE who will be attacking Romney, and feeling himself smugly superior, it will come as a shock to see a man McCain thinks is a mouse, an insignificant pipsqueak who doesn't even deserve to share the same stage.
Lets take advantage that McCain is going to be so focused on condemning Romney, that a sudden, strongly worded, sharply spoken rhetoric by Dr. Paul against McCain will cause him to sputter and become red-faced.
The man has a glass jaw, he is a brittle, thin-skinned snarkmeister who never talks specifics.
Dr. Paul, you need to take a page out of Von Clausewitz (the master military & political strategist who wrote the seminal book on strategy: "On War", studied at every War college on the planet)
THIS IS THE TIME, THIS IS THE PLACE, THIS IS THE STATE !!
Hit now, Hit hard, Hit ONE MAN.
In a nutshell, the strategy is to apply the full pressure of your force at one SINGLE point, and push Hard.
NOT across a big front, i.e. in this case, multiple candidates, but only at one point, Hit JUST HIM, AND, while doing so, clearly identify how distinctive you are.
Someone else has said : "hit clean". FINE - actually, any hit by Dr. Paul is clean, because all of our arguments are empirically superior. McCain simply doesn't have ANY cogent argument. He has to resort to blather and bluster. We don't.
Everything else will fall into place.
Ignore the others :
Huckabee is a waste of space - he is disintegrating. Don't even address him.
Romney is a pseudo-gentleman who wont say anything to the Dr., we can deal with him later. He is smart enough to sit back & enjoy the spectacle of a surprise attack on McCain.
And no, to those reading who think that simply taking the 'high road' and talking in broad platitudes is enough. No, it is NOT anymore.
Dr. Paul has had a good strategy so far, we've been creeping upwards, slowly, steadily.
But there has to be a watershed event, the crest of a wave.
That crest was reached yesterday in Florida. Rudy is out.
Everyone can see that Huckabee is going.
That leaves only 3. .... and here's the kicker :
ALL AMERICA SUDDENLY NEEDS to DISCOVER RON PAUL -
in one fell swoop, as only the MSM can do it. You know they love to suddenly show america a strange underdog with a bite - they love to show upsets.
As american conservatives now face just 2 people they really don't want, they can suddenly examine this strange 3rd man they've heard little about.
(75 % of the country doesn't even know about our movement - the Media has only remarked on us in the most obtuse way. So, until today, he is only that odd man in the background that is snickered about)
Lets USE the Media's prior blackout to our advantage.
We've complained endlessly about the Media's blackout - Let's take MAXIMUM ADVANTAGE of them, NOW !!
They hate a big noisy field, BUT they Love a spoiler to a 2 man race - it creates excitement which they love to pump up and display.
This will remove us from the 4 to 8 % range, and place us squarely in the 12 to 15% range.
Yes, that would be plenty, for now ... at that point, the MSM will start doing a lot of the heavy lifting.
More than anything, we NEED the predicted 'brokered' convention to actually materialize.
That means we need Romney to still be around - because we need for the first round of convention delegate balloting to FAIL, i.e. less than 50 % for one candidate. If Romney gives up before then, WE"RE OUT, McCain locks it up.
So, the right strategy is to hit the strongest one now, make him lose equilibrium from a side he never expected. .... and lets take this party to Minnesota in September AND BLOW THEIR MINDS !!
