How about his record?
McCain has worked closely with liberals like Ted Kennedy and Russell Feingold and has frequently acted against the best interests of the Republican
Party because he thought he was benefiting the wider interests of the American people. Personally, I was absolutely disgusted with him over the whole
open-borders stance he took last year, and I'm not even convinced that he wholeheartedly believes we need to secure the border before addressing the
illegal immigration problem.... But, I've got to give the man credit for taking unpopular positions that ought to harm his electability simply
because he thinks he's doing the right thing.
McCain voted 95% in line with Bush before he decided to run.
McCain claims his "a consistent supporter of educational benefits for the men and women of the military" yet he refuses to support the GI bill, just
like Bush. And then mccain says this: nz.youtube.com...
McCain supports a war that he and his neocon buddies cant explain the reason for. First its
-WMDs, then when the UN finds nothing,
-it was connected to the terrorists of 911, your typical rightwing fearmongering, and then
-it was because saddam was a bad person, yet there are plenty of other nations to "liberate" in this case, but no, this wasnt the reason why Bush
-and now its the "surge". For some darn reason the "surge" is working and thats why we should stay there yet there is still no legitimate reason
why we're there. A war thats costing the tax payer $200million all the while at home the economy suffers. A war that is yet to bring out Osama. A war
that righties constantly defend knowing full well the truth behind the invasion yet prefer to cover their asses and their votes.
McCain was a maverick until he started following the crowd of neocons few years back. He intends to continue the policies of this administration that
have failed this nation. He intends to keep troops in a pointless costly war, costly of the tax payers money and lives.
McCain is no "centrist". This is the new ""thing"" coming from the mouths of righties, "oh I dont like McCain but im voting for him" as if
their sacrifice to vote for mccain clarifies that McCain is not Bush at all. I mean are serious?
The second wave of anti-obama smears are coming in. Let me translate them here:
Obama will let " Bush's Crimes Remain Buried for all Time"
So Bush will not be charged under Obama by righties account so you might aswell vote McCain.
Obama school documents
A school document supposedly to be "authentic" yet no official sources confirm this. Oh but this is different to Obamas birth certificate, oh thats
a different. The step father of obama wrote this so it must be true.
Obama's Extreme Stand on Abortion
Obama's policies are inline with clintons, Obamas stance on abortion is no different than the vast majority of liberals. Theres no "extreme" stand
And here straight out of the constitution: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion"
Everyday its something new with you fellas, one day a myth of yours is debunked, the next day its something else and to make it worse these members
cannot see the hypocrisy in these accusations.
