Good Morning Bloggers - I was watching different news channels yesterday and was struck by a McCain rally in Pennsylvania. He was spewing the usual "socialism" crap, but what really got me was how feisty he seemed. He seemed very angry. He reminded me of an spitting pit bull, barking "stand up, stand up, stand up and fight."
You have to give the little creep credit. He doesn't admit when he's down and he fights hard. It would be impressive if it wasn't so scary. I would hate to be locked in an elevator with that man.
I know you Republicans would like to see McCain in the White House, but have you really considered what you might be doing to us all? You might be making another HORRIBLE MISTAKE! The man reminds the rest of us of George Bush, but angrier. Do we really want another president like George Bush, but angrier?
I admit McCain's new oratory is appealing to the crazy Republican base, but it's scaring the rest of us. The man is another "warrior-politician." He sees everything as a battle. There are winners and losers, and the rest doesn't matter. He doesn't respect people. Just look at the way he treats his fellow senators, or the way he treated Obama during the debates. The man is scary!
The obvious problems with his team, his problems with Palin, and all the other red flags point to a man who should NOT BE PRESIDENT. Politico.com yesterday quoted a "senior" McCain adviser calling Palin a "whack job." Do we really want a whack job one melanoma-scare away from the White House? Do we really want "diva" as president?
I don't know about you Republicans, but the rest of us have had enough of the warrior, the extremist, the win-lose type? We want a president who is thoughtful, patient, respectful, strategic, and competent. Amazingly, those are only a few of the many positive character traits of Barack Obama.
McCain has a horrible team, which he manages poorly to say the least. Obama has one of the best teams, which he manages brilliantly. So, let McCain scream at the clouds if he must, but let's not elect him president in six days. One word of caution, I think a McCain mask might be a little too scary this Halloween. I would stick to the blood and guts look.
