thank God john mccain is not president.

he's absolutely insane and with the brilliant input from vice-president palin,

we would be in some real deep shit.

his only response is military might.

1. Scary thougth, isn't it?

Every time some one on this board attacks President Obama I want to remind them, you could have McCain or Romney to deal with what we are facing. I don't agree with everything the President does but I am thankful he's the one making the decisions.

Geez... McCain scares me...

23. True, but maybe that's the one that needs war profiteers. We could pay big bonuses whenever the

poverty rate goes down. We already shovel obscene amounts of cash at Raytheon, Lockheed, and others, why not get them working on reducing hunger, homelessness, and poverty?

4. McCain plays the role of attack dog ... it's his thing.

 

Both sides benefit from it, when it's called upon. Furthermore, the whole "McCain is a blood-thirsty warmonger" framing is comic book oversimplification. Still glad he's not President, but I'm not foolish enough to take his public persona as completely genuine.

24. Hardly. He's overly reactionary and borderline unstable. He's still trying to win the Vietnam war

and make his Dad proud. He has a few screws loose.

11. Actually, if we had a totally insane president and the world knew it ...

Putin might have thought twice about challenging us.
So in a way the right could be right in a twisted kind of way.

You'd have to have a verifiable maniac at the helm though.

31. Here:

 

http://voices.yahoo.com/mccain-would-better-president-than-obama-clinton-1054771.html

What is not expected is the acknowledgment that Senator John McCain, a Republican rival and supposed ideological opposite, would be a better president than Senator Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat and supposed ideological equal (more or less). According to Fernando Suarez of CBS News in Forth Worth, Clinton told the reporters: "I think you'll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say. He's never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002."

The speech she referred to is an anti-war speech Obama made in Chicago before assuming his duties as a U.S. Senator for the state of Illinois.

32. Thanks. Yeah, that was a stupid thing for her to say. I guess she thought

what she said in Texas would stay in Texas, and she was trying to make points with the Independents. Dumb.

18. We'd still be at war in Georgia.

And still in Iraq. And no pullout from Afghanistan. And probably a couple other places.

Maybe he has some big defense contractors pushing him because they need a big new war to feed on.

long road to ruin. This guy is off base so far he would probably get us all killed in a nuke war.
