Grand Old Party

In sheer agony I am watching the progress (or lack thereof) of this presidential competition. While Obama rushes to the right, McCain is sitting back watching the days go by. Aggression. That is what this campaign is all about, and it will be the more aggressive candidate sitting in the Oval come January 09.

McCain is currently running a losing campaign. If he wants to win the election he needs to step up the pressure on Obama; he needs to bring the fight to Obama's territory. Instead, Senator Obama has brought the fight to the Republican dominated territories, forcing the GOP to go on the defensive.

Why, why, I ask, is the Republican party incapable (apparently) of fighting, of tackling the issues in a way that will show America that it cares. Where is the passion and the drive that once defined this Grand Old Party?
