According to Congressional Quartely's voting studies, in 2007 Senator McCain voted in line with president Bush's POSITIONS
95 percent of the time. This was McCain's highest percentage rate since Bush took office. He also voted in line with his party 90 percent of the time, maverick he is.
The fact that Americans are even considering voting for a man who admitted to not knowing much about economics during such economically tough times. A man who nominates a woman who was mayor of a town of 6,000, a Governor for less than 2 years( of Alaska no less), no national or international experience, has only lived in two states her entire life, no advanced degree, didn't even know what the VP does, a heartbeat away from the presidency just to pander to women and evangelicals.
This gives you great insight into his judgement, what does he care most about? This country or winning? And you want to talk about clowns? What should I expect from people who voted Bush into office twice because they thought he'd be cool to have a beer with. McCain is a saint, declared by those who don't know a thing about him. But that Obama he's a bad guy. People need to get over their irrational fears of the "boogeyman," but that's expecting to much I supposse.
However, I do have faith that the vast majority don't think this way and those who do are slowly dying off. I'm actually a registered independent and have nothing against McCain as a human being, but wouldn't vote for him if he were running against a dog. His first display of presidential judgement, he chooses some clueless(according to the top papers in her own state) unknown for VP just to pander. If McCain is elected and croaks in office, well, I guess we'll have our first gun toting, hockey loving, creationist female president. Anything but that "clown" Obama.
