Hothead McCain: Worse Than Bush

2262688982_a4a45a77bd_m.thumbnail.jpgRobert Dreyfuss, writing about McCain in The Nation:

"He’s the true neocon," says the Brookings Institution’s Ivo Daalder, a liberal interventionist who conceived the idea of a League of Democracies with Robert Kagan. "He does believe, in a way that George W. Bush never really did, in the use of power, military power above all, to change the world in America’s image. If you thought George Bush was bad when it comes to the use of military force, wait till you see John McCain…. He believes this. His advisers believe this. He’s surrounded himself with people who believe it. And I’ll take him at his word."

It’s a tribute to the power of barbecue lovin’ hackery that people continue to see him as able to unite the country in anything other than opposition to endless war.

C&L has video of Dreyfuss talking about McCain’s temperamental bellicosity.

He really is worse than Bush.
