…and in every statement. John McCain is George W. Bush.
There is, of course, ample reason for criticism of the Obama Campaign, in its failure to come up with a consistent, overwhelming line to define John McCain. I fail to understand why they don’t, because it is easy to do.
Georgia? “In the same way that George W. Bush went to war in Iraq without thinking through the consequences, now John McCain wants a new war with no end.”
Campaign tactics? “John McCain’s handlers are using the same strategy they used for their old boss, George W. Bush….”
Offshore drilling? “John McCain adopts the Bush policy of drilling and doing the oil industry’s bidding…”
Taxes? “John McCain wants to out-George Bush George Bush, and give away the federal Treasury to the super-rich.”
The economy? “Like George Bush, John McCain doesn’t think that there is any problem and is happy to go back to his lavish estate.”
Judges? “John McCain wants to appoint judges just like George W. Bush did–who trample on the rights of workers, the environment etc. etc.”
Insert issue here.
There is one thing that is worse than all of those things, according to the electorate: George W. Bush.
Say this every day. In every press release. On every issue.
