McCain Changes His Tune
Posted on Oct 13, 2008
After Team McCain’s negative strategy over recent days seemed to hurt the Republican’s campaign more than help it, John McCain took a new tack on Monday, calling off the attack dogs—or at least reining them in a bit—during a speech in Virginia Beach.

Republican John McCain pledged to fight for a new direction for the country in an energetic new campaign stump speech Monday that sought to distance him from the economic policies of President Bush. “We cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight: waiting for our luck to change,” McCain said while campaigning with running mate Sarah Palin in this once reliably Republican state that has become a battleground this year.
“The hour is late; our troubles are getting worse; our enemies watch. We have to act immediately. We have to change direction now.”
The Arizona senator insisted he understood Americans’ concerns about the deepening financial crisis, even as fears about the meltdown have moved voters firmly in Democrat Barack Obama’s direction in recent weeks.
