Good Post Alert - McCain’s Bush Problem, Laid Bare ... And Bush's Third Term

As we go through our latest "Black Friday", and Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain flops around all over the place, almost literally throwing it against the wall to see what sticks, running away from his record, his legacy, his maverickness (today, in a speech, blaming Obama for the meltdown!), we go with the old saying "you can run, but you can't hide".

So we point you to a post, yesterday, from Matthew Delong, over on The Washington Independent.

McCain’s Bush Problem, Laid Bare

Here's a snip;

The McCain campaign appears to have a blanket policy of not mentioning Bush. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews made this painfully obvious during a recent interview with McCain adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer, when she refused to say who she voted for in 2004.

But McCain still can’t, or won’t, attack Bush, for fear that it will give the Obama campaign an opportunity to link McCain to his own party, by pointing out that McCain has voted with Bush 90 percent of the time. Obama has a free pass to criticize the administration and to run ads showing McCain and Bush together, and McCain has essentially cut himself off from benefiting from the wealth of anti-Bush sentiment in this country.

And, here's a good video, showing us more of what would be Bush's Third Term;

John McCain and the Keating 5: Third Term

Yes, we will concede, Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain does have great insight to this latest crises.
