John McCain's Campaign Platform

Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan sum up the John McCain campaign platform pretty effectively:
BUCHANAN: Here’s a guy, basically, what does he say? The jobs are never coming back, the illegals are never going home, but we’re gonna have a lot more wars.

SCARBOROUGH: We’re gonna start a lot of wars! He has promised, for the record Keith, John McCain’s platform — and it certainly looks inviting for the fall — he has promised less jobs and more wars. Now that’s something we can all rally behind.




According to Think Progress:

While campaigning in Michigan earlier this month, McCain said some Michigan industries cannot be resurrected. “I’ve got to give you some straight talk: Some of the jobs that have left the state of Michigan are not coming back,” he said.

And just this weekend, McCain told a crowd of supporters, “There’s going to be other wars. … I’m sorry to tell you, there’s going to be other wars. We will never surrender but there will be other wars.”


And the McCain Silly Walk Express stumbles its way into the lead through the shear incompetence of the other GOP presidential candidates. His likely campaign motto?

John McCain in 2008!
The best of the worst the GOP has to offer!


According to ctblogger the Silly Walk Express will be stumbling through Connecticut with his neoconservative brother in eternal arms, Joe Lieberman:
McCain is coming to Connecticut... with Lieberman attached to the hip.
McCain, the front-runner in the Connecticut GOP primary, is appearing Sunday at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, the site of an appearance before winning the state's primary in 2000.

The Arizona senator will appear with Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman and U.S. Rep. Chris Shays, says a well-placed source.

I wonder how those "stick with Joe" Democrats feel right about now?
My guess is that they feel pretty darn dumb after we, in Connecticut's left Blogosphere, warned them over and over again...

Bah, i'm in North Stamford this Saturday.. this sounds like a great event.

I'm watching the republican debate and it's making me ill btw... I can't stomach Willard Romney and Mccain, they're bickering fools. Ron Paul keeps getting cut off

I should just watch a soap opera on Tivo at this point

McCain doesn't have much to offer, huh?

Either McCain or Romney would pretty much be the same as electing dumbya for a term. I would say re-electing but lil' bush has yet to actually win a clean election, IMHO.
