I was watching John McCain blather last night during an interview with Greta Van Susteren and had to marvel at a particular distinction that the automaton holds that no other does…he is the ONLY person I would less rather see in the White House than the current disaster now occupying that residence. He drones and drones without providing any illumination beyond the bromides he’s heard from others and which he parrots in stultifying fashion. A bigger problem still is that he lies through his teeth, hardly maverick behavior in a Senatorial body shot through with liars.
McCain would have people believe that he has favored sealing Arizona’s borders all along, when in fact, during his presidential campaign, he pandered to Latino voters with promises of “comprehensive immigration reform”—code for allowing illegals to gain citizenship. He was opposed to building fences or fortifying the borders then, but now as public sentiment grows for SB 1070, he is castigating Obama for not doing enough to protect the borders.
McCain misses no opportunity to bash the chosen one on his economic policies as well, forever talking about how the president is “mortgaging our children’s futures” with the seemingly endless series of stimulus bills that have failed miserably. McCain is now trying to wash his hands of his massive role in the original TARP bill which propped up failing Wall Street crooks, and for which McCain famously interrupted his presidential campaign to support. At the time he proclaimed that he was returning to Washington to do the peoples’ work. What a tool!!
But his nattering about “mortgaging our children’s futures” does raise an interesting thought. Why should we care about our children’s futures? We’re talking about a generation of kids whose interest in the world doesn’t extend beyond Lindsay Lohan and Lady Gaga, and frankly they’re getting what they deserve. It was largely this generation of knuckleheads that put Obama and his attendant socialist policies in office because they thought it would be hip to have a black president. Now they’re the same ones marching on California college campuses, protesting tuition hikes because the well has run dry after years and years of policies not unlike Obama’s. As Reverend Wright would say, “The chickens have come home to roost.”
