Apparently, his announcement on Letterman wasn’t planned. Understandably, that’s pissed off a lot of people working for him.
John McCain’s Obama- esque remarks about our “wasted” resources in Iraq weren’t the only comments that landed him in hot water after a recent appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. Many of his staff were blindsided by his campaign announcement. And several aides were so outraged that they’ve quit, say Republican insiders.
“They’re implodingÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬?he had a game plan that had him announcing much later in the year,” one top Republican aide tells Radar, adding that the campaign is “in serious trouble … Romney’s plan and Rudy’s jump in the polls caused him to scrap his plans completely. When you do that, and you’re not prepared for it, the staff goes crazy. Some of his coordinators in different states were pulling their hair out!”
Think Giuliani is hiring?
In any event, what this should tell us is McCain is unfocused. That’s a BIG problem. It’s okay if he goes off the script every now and again, but to not tell your staff that you’re going to announce something on national television…that’s crazy. So yeah, McCain deserves to sweat a little bit.
I wonder what, if anything, can put him back on track…
