Barnstorming their way across the nation, the GOP presidential ticket will be in Colorado Springs Saturday morning. But as our Michigan Messenger colleague Alexa Stanard notes, the McCain-Palin speeches in Michigan Friday were nothing more than convention night left-overs.
“Here’s a little warning for the big-spending, do-nothing, me-first, country-second Washington crowd: Change is coming,” McCain told a cheering audience of about 7,000 in a speech that sounded the theme of change that both campaigns are scrambling to claim.
If that line sounds familiar, it’s because it was part of McCain’s convention acceptance speech Thursday night. In fact, nearly all of his and Palin’s speeches were near-verbatim abbreviated repeats of their convention addresses, down to the punch lines.
