There is a blueprint from the 2000 South Carolina GOP Primary to completely savage McCain.

Obviously Obama could never be directly involved in any such attacks, but it is time for surrogates and general Democratic supporters to go for the jugular.

Push-polling, destroying McCain's credbility among military families, and the fragile trust he's trying to build among bible thumpers that are so crucial to his base... this would be a pretty easy way to get to and maintain a 10-15 point lead for Obama.

Bush had nothing to do with that strategy that coincidentally sealed his nomination, or so I've been told.

You don't have to be a scumbag, like Bush surrogates, you just have to be honest.

Talk about his involvement with the Keating five, his obsequiousness to Bush, the fact that he has consistently voted against funding for Vets and the new GI Bill, his vacillations on tax cuts, and his war mongering along with his increasingly close ties to Big Oil.

Democrats haven't shown the same propensity that republicans have for this kind of dishonesty. Why do you presume they would use the same sleazy tactics? Just because it works with republican voters?

If Obama wants to win over military voters all he has to do is point out how McCain has not supported the troops whenever a vote comes up to fund veterans issues or quality of life issues. And how he's willing to misuse the military for imperial invasions and endless occupations instead of the nation's defense. That should be enough. Employing republican smear tactics isn't necessary and so far has been something democrats haven't been willing to do.

So why would you even start a thread like this when there is no basis for it?

Not necessary.

He's right. It's the only option Obama has left.
