Topic: Stephen Hayes
A couple of final Florida polls indicate a very small advantage for John McCain, with Rudy sliding further behind. However, neither side seems entirely confident.
In the final hours last night before zero day the final jabs were taken. Mitt Romney says he would not be McCain’s Vice President. Well, given the recent expressions of disdain from McCain, I don’t think Romney need worry about being asked. On the issue of the surge, I would agree with Stephen Hayes, and find it remarkable not more has been made of Romney’s prior evasions on the surge policy.
Although Romney last night on an appearance on Fox News said that the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation would vouch for his fiscal record as Governor of Massachusetts, this group, the McCain folks are happy to remind us, actually attacked Romney for a calculated $700M in increased fees and “loophole” closings. Finally, Professor Stephen Bainbridge offers up some helpful research on McCain’s prior support for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.
At this point, all that matters is who turns out to vote and how many of those half a million early voters each side banked.
