John McCain has used every page of the Karl Rove playbook this campaign season. To everyone's amazement, he's even added some of his own. Karl Rove said late last week that McCain need's to stop, that he has "gone one step too far." When Karl Rove , the Bush advisor who single handily re-invented the Republican party, say's you need to quit telling lies and being divisive you have definitely gone too far.
John McCain's horrible temper has been known in Washington for a long time. His vile attitude, and child like whininess is the stuff grade school legends are made of. He reminds me of an old man who has degenerated into a child. We can't afford to let someone who sing's songs about bombing other countries take the highest office of the land. While trying to give illegal aliens amnesty last year he blew up and screamed " F- you" At Texas Sen. John Cornyn" (R-TX). 'This is chicken____stuff,' McCain snapped at Cornyn, according to several people in the room off the Senate floor last May. (Factecheck: Charles Hurt, "Raising McCain," New York Post, 5/19/07)
O·bam·a·na·ble - adjective
1. repugnantly hateful; detestable; loathsome
2. very unpleasant; disagreeable
3. very bad, poor, or inferior
Do Republicans really want someone who is so strongly for Illegal aliens staying in the country that he'd attack people in his own party?
When he couldn't get an earmark in on a budget bill in early 2000 he went off again calling a fellow GOP senator an A__hole. He told then Budget Committee chariman Pete Dominici, 'Only an a___hole would put together a budget like this.' A Fellow GOP Senator To Say, "I Didn't Want This Guy Anywhere Near A Trigger." But McCain went on saying, 'I wouldn't call you an a___hole unless you really were an a___hole.' (factcheck @ newsweek.com, article titled "Senator Hothead")
He says he's against pork barrel spending but when he doesn't get his earmarks on a bill he sure knows how to whine like baby.. Do Republicans really want this man to run the country?
In 1995 John McCain got in a physical fight with 95 year old Strom Thurmond on the Senate floor. He's also bashed Christians, after apologizing earlier this year all was forgiven. In 2000 he said this of the christian right. "Unfortunately, Governor Bush is a Pat Robertson Republican who will lose to Al Gore. … The political tactics of division and slander are not our values… They are corrupting influences on religion and politics, and those who practice them in the name of religion or in the name of the Republican Party or in the name of America shame our faith, our party and our country. Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right." (Sen. John McCain, Remarks, Virginia Beach, VA, 2/28/00)
"It was election night 1986, and John McCain had just been elected to the U.S. Senate for the first time. Even so, he was not in a good mood. McCain was yelling at the top of his lungs and poking the chest of a young Republican volunteer who had set up a lectern that was too tall for the 5-foot-9 politician to be seen to advantage, according to a witness to the outburst. 'Here this poor guy is thinking he has done a good job, and he gets a new butt ripped because McCain didn't look good on television,' Jon Hinz told a reporter. At the time, Hinz was executive director of the Arizona Republican Party.
McCain often insults people and flies off the handle…. There have been the many times McCain has called reporters 'liars' and 'idiots' when they have had the audacity to ask him unpleasant, but pertinent, questions. McCain once… publicly abused Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama." (Editorial, "There's Something About McCain," The Austin American-Statesman, 1/24/07)
But on another note.. McCain is back on his game today running around the country spewing crap about our strong and vibrant economy." Stating once again that "the fundamentals of our economy are strong." Acting as if he has had nothing to do with the de-regulation of the banks on Wall Street. You would think that Americans who have always been disgusted with career politicians, calling them "corrupt, evil, or dis-honest," wouldn't vote for a man who has been in the Senate for more than 25 years. He has voted against renewable energy 23 times, against minimum wage 19 times, and was 1 of 5 senators under investigation for their involvement in the 1980's savings and loan scandal.
If Republicans put this guy on a pedestal and title their piece of work "CHANGE" they are doing nothing more than putting lip-stick on a pig. Partisan politics are not as important as putting your country first. John McCain has to use the phrase as his campaign theme just to get people to believe it's true. If he had put his country first at anytime in the last 25 years he wouldn't have 7 lobbyists running his campaign. Bottom line is he may have been a POW, and he may be a military veteran. He may have fought in Vietnam in the 60's and 70's, but this is the 2000's and if you think John McCain is the same man he was 40 years ago you aren't reading up on the facts.
John McCain is an angry, out of touch old man. If he make's it to the White House we will be the laughing stock of the entire world. The only way to stop the finger pointing and name calling by the rest of the world will be to blow them all to hell. Dont think McCain isnt willing to do so. If he'll attack a 95 year old senator or a 16 year old Republican volunteer, he'll be real quick to nuke anyone, anytime, anywhere.
Do you really want the Obamanable McCain running your country?
Do your homework. Check the facts. Compare the Policies. Vote for CHANGE. Not More of the SAME.
