John McCain has a new add depicting himself as the Democrats worst nightmare. The ad proclaims that the Democrats fear facing him in the general election if he gets the nomination.
The McCain campaign Communications Director Jill Hazelbaker stated in the new ad that, "Democrat Senators, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards mentioned John McCain's name 15 times during a 90 minute debate. Thus making McCain their worst nightmare.
What Hazelbaker failed to mention is the reason McCain's name was mentioned so many times during the debate. It wasn't as freely mentioned as she alluded, but was in the context of answers to questions posed to the Democrats during the debate.
Keep in mind that the questions were geared for the Democrats on the stage only and was assumed that they would implicate each other to further their agenda.
A sampling of the questions:
- Of all the candidates, who is most likely to raise taxes if elected to the Presidency? They all answered in unison, "John McCain."
- Who is most likely to to halt the building of the border fence and open the borders? Again in harmony, "John McCain."
- Who is most likely to give amnesty to illegal aliens? Again, "John McCain."
- Who is most likely to get the approval of a criminal trials for terrorist as opposed to military tribunals? Again, "John McCain."
Democratic National Committee Chairman, Howard "Screaming Demon" Dean, agreed there is an underlying fear within the Democrat community of McCain getting the Republican nomination. He stated also, "The problem is not so much as his ability to ignite the Republican base and get them to the polls in the general election--our polling numbers assure us he will get very few core Republican votes. The real fear is his being able to to steal the independent votes and the moderate Republicans--as we refer to as 'closet Democrats'--but most alarming is his ability to steal the more liberal voters from the Democrat Party."
Dean continued to mention how troubling and shocking McCain's endorsements are becoming for the Democrat Party, " It is unprecedented that a Republican has garnered the support and endorsements of the New York Times, Geraldo Rivera, Dailykos, Moveon, Codepink, Jimmy Carter, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and after the drubbing that Hillary took in South Carolina today, Bill Clinton.
