Sustained Negative Attack Ads

The frankness here is pretty striking:

For McCain to stand a chance of winning, the operative contended, the campaign, the Republican National Committee, or an independent group will have to finance sustained negative ads developing a broad assault on Obama’s credibility as a national leader at a time of terrorist threat. McCain, however, has gone out of his way to aggressively discourage such activity, the operative pointed out, which, he argued, may kill McCain’s chances.

My sense is that, at a time when 80% of the country thinks we’re on the wrong track, the Republican President has record low numbers, and the GOP is losing Congressional races in Louisiana and Mississippi, this probably isn’t going to stick.

I’ll have a full length article on why I think McCain is in a lot of troule in the next few days.
