Where's The Maverick!

So asks Melissa Clouthier...
Being a Senator is not being President, though. It takes a whole different skill set to succeed. And McCain repeatedly misses where he should hit. He is not being Mavericky at all. He’s not going on the offensive. And he’s not going on the defensive either. Does the man even carry a weapon? He seems to be the pacifistic presidential candidate, afraid to wield even a cutting phrase for fear he’ll be viewed as mean or aggressive. His pacifism calls into question his will to win. [...]

John McCain’s softness (and the irony is not lost on me) is absolutely frustrating given the last eight years of excessive Presidential oratorical restraint. The Republicans need a leader who can articulate what we feel: love for country, desire for small government, a kick-ass military who is freed to get the job done, solid infrastructure and the notion that America is great and strong. [...]

John McCain is in a Presidential election. It’s a messy business and there is a purpose for it. Voters get to see what the candidates are made of. No wonder Republicans are so demoralized.

Demoralized is an understatement. Does McCain want to win? I have yet to see the evidence.
