The War Hero And The Community Organizer...

“America needs more than a brave soldier. America needs a wise leader...” said Mr. Biden.

Really? Where in the world are we going to find one of those?

The Democrats are desperately trying to tie John McCain to George W. Bush. They will tell you that McCain voted with George Bush 90% of the time. (You would think that a lock-step partisan flunkie would have voted with the President 100% of the time, the way the Democrats voted against him...)

They tell us that a McCain Presidency would offer absolutely no change from the horrors of the Bush years, only more of the same...

They call McCain "McBush", and tell us that McCain is running for Bush's third term, and that McCain wants the U.S. to stay engaged in a bloody, hopeless struggle in Iraq for the next hundred years, no matter how many of our babies he has to send to the slaughter.

And they believe that they have a very good reason for telling us all this stuff... They believe that if they can only tie McCain closely enough to President Bush, that there is no way that McCain can possibly win the White House.

Here is the flaw in their logic, however...

Republicans don't hate President Bush.

Not the way that Democrats do.

And the reason that Conservatives were not particularly thrilled with McCain (until Sarah Palin came along), or with President Bush for that matter, was not because they were too much alike, or because they weren't religious enough, or any of that stuff...

It was because neither of them is conservative enough.

So, America needs a wise leader, huh, Mr. Biden?

Well, unfortunately, this time around, there doesn't seem to be one on either ticket. Not at the top, anyway.

So, we have to choose between a War Hero, (a real one, not the kind the Democrats tried to run last time, who threw grenades on himself until he was allowed to come home and wage war against his brothers in arms with the "Winter Soldier " campaign...), and a mealy-mouthed communist.

And, given those two options, I'll take the Hero, thank you very much.

"They will tell you that McCain voted with George Bush 90% of the time."

But what they won't tell you is that President Bush doesn't get a vote in the Senate and, therefore, McCain can't vote with Bush.

They will also not tell you that many of those votes McCain made were unanimous. Therefore Obama and Biden ALSO voted with Bush much of the time.

President Bush is not on the ballot this November, either. (No matter how hard the Democrats try to put him on it.)

Besides that, McCain claims to be a Republican, but he has bucked his party, made end runs around the President, and generally tried to create mayhem and bring attention to himself for years.

One of the reasons that I despise having to vote for him is that when he was needed most, he defected to the other side.

(As a matter of fact, I told a guy that I work with the other night that if he wanted to vote for the Democrat, then he should vote for McCain, and he agreed.)

Nonetheless, I would rather have someone who is center-right that may be pulled further to the right on specific issues than someone who is far radical left to have to try to drag halfway to the center-left.

Go McCain/Palin!!

You are dragging dead weight when you try to drag a leftist away from his radical spot. mom2

According to Obama, McCain is running for Bush's FOURTH term.

He said it! Yes, he did!

I didn't.

The man can't count to three. Scary that he might be our next President, isn't it?

And I can see why, Bush has had astounding success in Iraq, Afghanistan, capturing Bin Laden, the economy, foreign policy and foreign relations. I mean only Iran and Korea has gone nuclear on his watch and Russia now knows they can do what ever they want with us bogged down in the endless war in Iraq.

Oh right, Republicans are idiots, thats why they still like Bush. Well, 80% of the country does not approve of Bush. If you want to stay our present course then by all means, vote for McSame.

Toad, there's no such candidate as "McSame."
