McCain Panders

I think this one falls under the heading of "despicable opportunists". John McCain, desperate to get into the White House-

Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Monday the war in Iraq has been mismanaged for years and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld will be remembered as one of the worst in history.

Of course, he's the same man who only a few months ago said this-

"While Secretary Rumsfeld and I have had our differences, he deserves Americans' respect and gratitude for his many years of public service," McCain said last year when Rumsfeld stepped down.

But, hey, this is electioneering time- McCain has no place for things like gratitude or respect now. Can we believe anything he says?

I can't vote for McCain, and I sure hope the Republicans come up with another nominee ... you know, if I decided to vote for a Democrat, I'll vote for a Democrat.

And, after observing all the Dem shenanigans this year, it'll be a frigid day in Hades before I vote for a Democrat.

McCain equivocates too much. While I honor his military service, I do not trust him to have the National interest at heart. It's a common failure in politicians here "across the pond." We need leaders, not panderers.

Good, thoughtful piece, Jay. Thanks for posting it.

McCain-Feingold is enough of a reason for any conservative to not vote for him- frankly, I'd expected better of him than to resort to this sort of pathetic name calling.
