McCain is also beating the anti-Bush drum this week as he sees his presidential hopes slipping away. After seeking Bush's endorsement and proudly stating he voted with Bush 90% of the time, now McCain can't get away from him quick enough now.
In an interview Thursday with The Washington Times, McCain contemptuously launched into a long list of Bush's shortcomings:
McCain's comments are hilarious since he was complicit in all of the above mentioned failures. McCain voted for the war and the budgets to fund it, except for one because it had a timeline for withdrawal attached to it. He was also a rabid supporter of deregulation of the financial systems. McCain should turn the mirror on himself if he's looking for a place to lay blame.
At a campaign rally in Denver today, McCain said:
“We cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight: hoping for our luck to change at home and abroad.”
My sentiments exactly, which is why McCain is the last person on earth we should elect since none of his major policies differ from Bush. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck -- and McCain's anti-Bush rhetoric is all washed up.
