John McCain on Meet the Press

McCain on Meet the Press Today: "I Believe I'm Going to Win"

An optimistic and fired up John McCain showed up to Meet the Press this morning where he dispelled the notion that he was hurting in the polls. McCain said, “We are doing fine. We have closed in the last week, and we’re going to continue this close in the next week.” Did you catch that? "The next week" he's referring to is the last week of the campaign. It's almost impossible to believe that there's still an ending to this.

Talk turned to his running mate and McCain stood firm on his Palin-position, “I don’t defend her. I praise her. She needs no defense." And as for that much ballyhooed shopping spree, McCain is very pragmatic about it. “She lives a frugal life, she and her family are not wealthy, she and her family were thrust into this."

Though a Newsweek poll released yesterday shows Obama with a 13-point lead nationally, McCain pressed on assuring voters, "We've closed in the last week. We'll continue to be very competitive in many of the battleground states." In all this morning, he sounded tough, rough, and ready, good-naturedly likening himself to Knute Rockne at half time. Is his optimism right on?

To see what he had to say,

I was responding to the statement that "multi-billionares" don't waste money.
gitsie123 gitsie123 7 years
NO I didn't. I understand both points and maybe these "millionares" know something we don't and maybe McCain will win. Plus isn't illegal to bet on elections?

"umm, not really. Millionares waste their money on stupid stuff all the time. Custom cars, private islands, exotic animals.... You hear about it all the time." I think you missed the point.

I think McCain's comments just stirred all those Obama supporterss and volunteers to sprint to the finish line. After I heard these comments, I decided to donate my whole upcoming weekend to volunteering. I know I am not alone. Thanks John, for sealing the deal for us! :-)

[The chances of him winnning all of the battleground states and winning Penn...]Given that McCain's campaign has been erratic in the extreme -- I can't believe that McCain still has followers.
