Want more Bush? Elect McCain

This is Helen Thomas’ advice today. McCain, while easily appearing reasonable when compared to George Bush, was never the moderate which the media made him out to be. McCain is a masterful politician. He knows that the Republicans will most likely nominate someone seen as the obvious establishment leader of the party, not an outsider. Therefore he is trying to become a George Bush clone, including being the strongest supporter of Bush’s foreign policy and pandering to the far right.

Thomas notes that McCain “is against abortion rights and gun-control laws and believes students should be taught the religion-oriented “intelligent design” theory of creation as well as the theory of scientific evolution.” She warns that “If he wins the presidency, the country can expect a continuation of Bush’s aggressive foreign policy and ultra-right domestic programs.”
