what part of "the media will give the win to McCain to keep this a horse race" didn't get through?
it doesn't matter what actually happens, only how its reported, and I think the media has a vested interest in keeping this race close. so they will be more likely then not to give a win to McCain because as Obama is owning the economy if McCain loses Foreign policy this week.
what chance does he have of winning? and what reason is there to watch non stop news from Sep. 27th - Nov 3rd?
the the whole point of calling it now. I say that unless McCain absolutely drops the ball he will win, because the media needs him to win
this is nice and all, but McCain will win the first debate (expectactions game are a bitch)
and he will make gains so I hope no one flips out next week if McCain is ahead. once again my debate prediction
Debate 1: McCain, McCain makes poll gains
VP Debate: Biden, Obama makes poll gains
Debate 2: McCain, McCain makes poll gains
Debate 3: Obama, Obama will lead and keep his lead.
why do I believe this? the expectations game, its Foreign Policy, now if Obama wins it, I think he seals the election, and as such the media would have nothing to talk about, thus look for them to keep this close and give it to McCain.
no way Palin beats Biden I dont care what people think, so they will give McCain debate 2 to keep this close or once again they have nothing to talk about,
the 3rd debate is Economy, look for Obama to win that one, he will spend between now and that debate setting up and owning this issue, he will ride that in to a win on Nov 4.
thats my prediction.
(just had to have it somewhere so that when I am right I can point it out and say told ya so)
Blogs, progressives everywhere should take up this argument and defend it, when the right tries to knock it down we make sure it gets right back up.
that's how we win, eventually with the way the economy is, its hard to that people can risk their lives to die for this country, but shelling out a few more bucks is way to much to ask from a citizen making so much money when people are losing their houses.
