Kristol Says, “Upbeat… Cheerful.” McCain says, “Not so much.”

October 13, 2008

NY Times’ (neo)conservative Op-Ed Columnist, Bill Kristol, calls for John McCain to change his campaign strategy.

There are still enough doubts about Obama to allow McCain to win. But McCain needs to make his case, and do so as a serious but cheerful candidate for times that need a serious but upbeat leader.

Meanwhile, McCain debuted his new stump speech in Virginia today… and didn’t paint a rosy picture.

In a stump speech notable for large paragraphs of pessimism, Mr. McCain said: “These are hard times, my friend. Our economy is in crisis. Financial markets are collapsing. Credit is drying up. Your savings are in danger and your retirement is at risk. Jobs are disappearing. The cost of health care, your children’s college, gasoline and groceries are rising all the time, with no end in sight, while your most important asset — your home — is losing value every day.’’
