    McCain voted over 90% of the time with Bush. That would be affirming the administration. He would therefore agree with Bush.

    Palin stands the party line on nearly every view.
    Pro life.
    Pro gun.
    No Global warming etc.

    If McCain voted 90% with bush what does he want to reform. He agrees with the policies of this administration.
    If he wants to reform it he has to be lying somewhere. Why would he want to reform a government he agrees with over 90% of the time.
    Was he lying when he voted?
    Is he lying now?
    Which is it?

    Palin took on the Republican party in her State and won, removing corruption and old boy politics.

    McCain has gone against the party a lot. Immigration and campaign Financing being the two biggest in recent history.

    But McCain voted with the Bush administration over 90% of the time. Why would he want to reform what he agrees with?

    You may want to check how often dems voted with the President as well.
