October, 2008; Arizona Republic: The national Rasmussen Reports has McCain with 51 percent to Obama’s 46.
“I have to tell you. Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don’t have to be scared of as president of the United States,” John McCain
…better known as the famous McCain straight-talk line, “I was for it before I was against it and, I’ll be for it again once I’m re-elected.”
A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH JOHN MCCAIN…
MIKE WALLACE: … let me ask you for some straight talk. Do you think that Senator Obama is a socialist?
MCCAIN: I think his plans are redistribution of the wealth. He said it himself, “We need to spread the wealth around.”
MIKE WALLACE: But, Senator, you voted for the $700 billion bailout that’s being used partially to nationalize American banks. Isn’t that socialism?
MCCAIN: Of course. It was a package that had to be enacted because the economy was about to go into the tank.
… or how about this delightful gem;
LARRY KING: Senator, there was a part of the speech — I wonder if you enjoyed it — when he [the President] criticized the Supreme Court for overturning portions of McCain/Feingold, your treasured legislation. How did you react to that?
MCCAIN: Well, obviously, I agreed with the president.
… and here’s an excerpt from the outrageous ad’s he’s running in Arizona;
[Disconbobulated vaguely soothing and threatening voice:] Perhaps no battle in our lifetime is more vital than the one John McCain fights now: a battle to save America… John McCain leads the charge to slash government spending, bloated bureaucracies, and ridiculously unaffordable ideas like government-run health care.
[Senator McCain:] “President Obama is leading an extreme left-wing crusade to bankrupt America. I stand in his way everyday. If I get a bruise or two knocking some sense into heads in Washington, so be it. I’ll keep fighting for … Arizona as long as I’m in the Senate.”
Here’s a fun challenge, dig into the past and lets find all those little McCainisms proving how often he changes his political stripes and how he’s NOT TO BE TRUSTED.
