- Ambition [✜]
Today John McCain chided Barack Obama for his "ambition to be president".
Just so we are all on the same page:
This is the same John McCain who has been running for president non-stop since 1999.
This is the same John McCain who has embraced not only Bush fils, but has also embraced Pat Roberson and Jerry Falwell, the far right evangelical preachers who eight years ago he denounced as "agents of intolerance... pandering to the outer reaches of American politics".
This is the same John McCain who in 1999 "would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade", but who now pledges to appoint Supreme Court Justices who would overturn this ruling.
This is the same John McCain who seven years ago denounced [don't bother, they took that page down] the Bush tax cuts as "tax cut in which so many of the benefits go to the most fortunate among us at the expense of middle-class Americans", but who now promises to extend these same tax cuts indefinitely.
This is the same John McCain who was a co-sponsor of the DREAM Act - an act to grant legal status to illegal immigrants' children who graduate from high school, but who now opposes this Act.
This is the same John McCain who said that he would vote against his own legislation on immigration reform. (That's right, John McCain was for John McCain before he was against him).
But according to this John McCain, it is Obama who has an ambition problem. Seems like a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.
