    is he the guy who claims he's for bush or the guy who claims he's against bush?

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm9rLDU-SiE]YouTube - John McCain can't keep his story straight about George Bush[/ame]


    It seems to me that he says whatever he thinks will get him the votes. In the primary he was behind Bush because he knew that his party sees Bush in a favorable light and he's a real hero to the party. Once he sealed up the nomination he suddenly became the 'new face' of the Republican party and the last 8 years were total shit and he was the one who was going to fix it. Why the turn around? well because he KNOWS he can't run on his parties record cuz it sucks. He knows that the American people or at least the majority of them, think bush did a terrible job as president and he doesn't want to get bumped off by being tied to Bush.

    The problem McCain has is his record and his own words.

    you find me a video of Obama directly contradicting himself and I'll concede your point.

    until then, try to stay on topic...

    the topic is John McCain's belief that the American people are stupid enough to believe that from 2001 - Sept 3rd 2008 John McCain fully support Bush but when he went to sleep on Sept 3rd and woke up the day of his speech he's somehow had an ephiany and realized how his party had fucked up the country and he wanted to fix it...

    it's bullshit...

    he's saying what he thinks will get him elected...

    Name the last politician that DIDN'T.

    And who's worse for it, the politician saying it or the idiot voters falling for it YET AGAIN?
