Nov. 5, 2008, "Insight - McCain #5 ** internal use only - Pls do not forward **
After discussions with his inner circle, which explains the delay in his
speech, McCain decided not to pursue the voter fraud in PA and Ohio,
despite his staff's desire to make it an issue. He said no. Staff felt
they could get a federal injunction to stop the process. McCain felt the
crowds assembled in support of Obama and such would be detrimental to our
country and it would do our nation no good for this to drag out like last
go around, coupled with the possibility of domestic violence.
My guy said many were shocked, but after reflecting upon his decision,
thought he put the country first.
Curiously, there are whispers of McCain being set up by the Cheney/Bush
crowd, because McCain was never liked by either. Some are shocked he did
so well. Coupled with serious errors in tactics. Some made no sense.
For example, the Hispanics in Florida loved Palin but his camp would never
send her there when easy money was to be had. My guy said Rove and
company want to bring in someone they can control next go around. McCain
was not controllable. Jeb Bush's name is being discussed. Source
advised Rick Davis was an arsehole and McCain's econ team had no clue,
trusting in academics vice business-people. The Jewish crowd was split
and money never flowed. For example, McCain staff only gave $3000.00 for
nationwide ads, when Obama put in $500,000 targeting the Jewish community in Florida alone.
I'll see what more I can collect on this. "
