McCain is starting to remind me of one of the characters from a classic Clink Eastwood movie. With Romney doing well in Florida McCain had to find something to win. Having learned his lesson well in South Carolina in 2000 McCain decided to invent an issue and claimed Romney is weak on the surge. Most of the media is not buying McCain’s disingenuous claim.
I guess McCain did not want to talk about his own record. It is interesting that McCain claims another candidate is weak on the war when it is McCain who wants to close down GITMO and send the terrorists to Kansas. It is also strange that McCain hits Romney over the gun issue when it was McCain who teamed with a Democrat to sponsor major gun control legislation. McCain is smart to get the debate off of his vote against the Bush tax-cuts, McCain’s support for federal stem cell research, his jobs killing view of global warming, his 24 years ignoring border security and recent “secure the border” talk, his bill limiting political speech, his hesitation on strict constructionist judges, and the rest of his record.
The only part about the movie clip above is I can’t decide who McCain reminds me of the most: the carpetbagger, the ferry driver, or Captain Terrill.
