(CNN) – John McCain’s campaign announced a shakeup at the top Wednesday, in the wake of growing Republican concern about its ability to compete against Barack Obama.
Campaign Manager Rick Davis said Tuesday morning that senior adviser Steve Schmidt would take over day-to-day operations of the campaign. The Bush campaign veteran will report to Davis, but the rest of the campaign will report to Schmidt, who will be in charge of everything from message and communications, to the political structure and organization to scheduling.
Sweating a bit under the collar are we?? one would think Charlie Black would have been the one to go. should be anyway after his terror baiting comments!
I wonder if Joe Liberman is the one that is going to launches the new terror attack. Please stop scaring people for political reason. America, it is not true no terror attack in 2009. If there is one Joe Lieberman and the Republican Party is behind it.
I see.........he's bringing up the big boys!!
Alright Dems, just tell me where to sign! LOL!!!
Schmidt’s top priority, according to a senior aide, will be to stop “errors in the campaign.”
SO IS MCCAIN SUSPENDING HIS CAMPAIGN, THAT'S THE ONLY WAY TO STOP ERRORS IN THE MCCAIN CAMPAIGN............. THE BIGGEST ONE, IS"MCCAIN IS THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE"........
BARACK THE VOTE PEOPLE....................... :)
Another Bush adviser getting a leading position in the McCain campaign?
He does not need to wonder why people call him McSame...
Doesn't matter, the candidate is still John McSame. The country is bushed, pun intended. We want change.
you'll be fine. I do think you need to do a bit more for the conservative base, but there are enough conservatives behind you to help out, so you'll be fine. Obama has to try and reach out to a whole new audience (the independents), so his work isnt easy either.
Glad to hear you're on the case, John.
I want you to WIN!
There are quite some Bush people now in the McCain campagin – including chief fundraiser Bush himself.
I guess Darth Vader and Karl Rove are keeping their involvement behind the scenes.
A skunk wrapped in Christmas paper is still a skunk. Good luck Mr. Schmidt. Democrats are not going to sit by and let you do your usual job of burying the public in lies. Not this time my friend.
This sounds familiar... Remember the multiple HRC "shake ups"?
This is the first major executive experience for all these candidates, and I think it's just fair to judge their ability to run a whole country by their ability to run a simple campaign.
By this metric, Obama wins hands-down!
Well, they can shake things up, but Obama's campaign is fare superior with people and policies alike. This just screams deperation to me...it's not gonna make a big difference, they republicans imply chose th wrong candidate and there's nothing they can do!
this is an article about obama
mccain you cant even run a campaign right how in the hll are you gonna run this country pretty sad when his own party the gop is putting him down ha ha ha
It is about time. His whole campaign has been helter skelter with no consistent messages. One day he is for something and the next day against. He makes so many blunders and often "misspeaks". I have no clue what his points are or where he stands currently on most of the issues.
John McCain is going to start world war 3.
Shakeup = going more negative.
So don't be surprise people when this happens.
What too many lobbiest so they can't figure out who's paying for what job? Just think if Bush cronies are running his campain then these same cronies will be running the White House for 4 more years!
A hint for what's to come if McCain gets elected? Maybe. Or another example of McCain poor judgement.
Another exciting chapter from The McCain Mutiny.
Don't miss next week's installment, when Captain John McQueeg goes ballistic in "The Case of the Missing Strawberries."
GOOD. Obama is all tall. Him and his supporters think he is a GOD an no one can talk about him. Everything is racist. Thats the only thing they know how to call.
McCain...Go Get him.. I hope that was not racist??
Stop playing dirty, get to the real issues, show more civility and drop Black from your camp then maybe you will appear more electable and not have so many problems. This is Obama's year.
Without any core values, it appears that McCain will be shaking up his campaign as necessary, on a regular basis to match the narrative of the week. If this 'maverick' could actually stand up for some value or principle and stock to it, it would probably help.
Getting rid of all the lobbyists that infest his campaign staff on the 'Straight Talk Express' would empty his bus.
For get about the liberals, I do not understand how any thinking conservative could ever support this guy. Bob Barr looks mighty appealing as the real standard bearer of conservative values in this election cycle.
Good luck with that McCain. However, it seems the Obama campaign is always one step ahead, as the Clintons learned to their (and my) chagrin. I have been very impressed with Obama campaign machine and if he and his selected team can manage the government as well as the campaign, America will be in for a treat when he is President.
No matter what shake-up is going on, McCain cannot compete with a man who is faithful to his wife and family.
