RNC convention focused on turning out their base 

The RNC convention was focused on making Obama appear to be an unacceptable choice. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/thefix/2008/09/mccain_manager_this_election_i.html,

"This election is not about issues. This election is about a composite view of what people take away from these candidates."
- McCain's campaign manager

By the time of a party convention, presidential candidates should be at the point of reaching out to the swing vote - as the Democrats did. The extreme partisan theme to the RNC convention shows they're still trying to shore up their voting base.
