Less Jobs, More Wars: The Real McCain Is Coming Out

Just a little peek under the skirting of the Straight Talk Express.

Sen. Thad Cochran, on the idea of John McCain getting elected:

"The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."

Captain Mustache John Bolton

Revealing information that he said had never before been made public, Bolton discussed how McCain secretly tried to shepherd his nomination to the United Nations — a nomination that was held up in Congress over Bolton’s controversial anti-UN statements and policies.

"He was very active behind the scenes," said Bolton, who was ultimately sent to the UN via a presidential recess appointment. "He thought I was the type of ambassador that ought to represent the United States at the United Nations."

President George W. Bush:

"We will face other challenges ahead that will require new energy and before long, new leadership. I’m absolutely confident, with your help we will elect a President who shares our principles. As we take on the challenges, we must be guided by the philosophy that has brought us success. Our policies are working. The American people support our points of view. They share our philosophy."

Y’all ready for another four more years of craptastic Republican Bushery?  Because with McCain, it’s gonna be "less jobs, more wars" as far as the eye can see.  Boo yah…what a legacy.  Carrying on the Bush/Cheney agenda, piling more failures in the corner on top of the others?

No thank you.
