We appreciate what you are doing to help support McCain/Palin. I admit that if we are to have a Democrat as President I would prefer to have it be Hillary instead of Obama. I can also empathize with y'all over what I saw in your primaries and what we are experiencing now. We tried to help with operation chaos but it wasn't enough. We can beat this poseur empty suit with your help then we can happily go at it again in four years.
My GOP friends need to read this excellent post by a PUMA that was linked by Atlas Shrugs in an open letter to us.
Like millions of other PUMAs, the only thing I’ve decided about this election is that under no circumstances would I be voting for Barack Obama. However, like millions of other PUMAs I have also realized that the only way to ensure that Barack Obama is not elected President is if John McCain wins on November 4th.
In the last few months, I have watched with amazement as you have worked hard to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the Presidential election. In your public and private utterances you have been pessimistic, downcast, fatalistic and have shown signs of being mentally out of the game.
How easily you forget that compared to Barack Obama, in John McCain you not only have a candidate who was legitimately elected by your party, but you have a better candidate, a better message, and a better connection to Main Street, USA. Despite all this you carry on like the election is over and Barack Obama has already won.
It is sad that compared to the rank and file of the GOP, PUMAs are more steadfast in their belief that an Obama presidency is not inevitable. All over the MSM, in the blogosphere and in conversations with people everywhere, members of the GOP who should still be fighting the good fight are talking like a party that has already lost. Why should this be so?
As the saying goes read the whole thing. It should sting a bit, they are working harder for our candidates than many of us are. Forget what the Beltway pundits are saying since they are more concerned with maintaining their standing with the cocktail crowd than they are with us.
Now is not the time to sit on your hands and complain now is the time to act.
Some PUMA blogs I recommend are:
They know more about Obama's tactics than we do after dealing with him and his supporters on a much closer basis than we have and have some excellent insight into how to defeat him.
