1) He votes with the failed and failing policies of George W. Bush 90+% of the time. (FactCheck.org has it at 95% of the time.) These policies will have a lasting detrimental affect on this country. And, more importantly, how can you be a Maverick when you vote with the Party Line 95% of the time?
2) Karl Rove, one of the most revolting, horrid figures to slime their way into politics since the Nixon Era, thinks that McCain’s negative ads fail the 100% truth test. Not exactly news — any of us who have followed this election since before the Republican Convention knew how false McCain’s and Palin’s statements have been — but still, when Karl Rove thinks you’ve gone too far… that’s frightening.
I don’t want to have to live in a country run by a man who votes with Bush 95% of the time, that Karl Rove thinks is untrustworthy with the truth, and who attached Sarah Palin to his ticket to rile up the GOP voting base.
McCain is not a Maverick by his own admission, he’s not good with facts or the truth, and his running mate is a frightening creature by her own admission: a pitbull with lipstick. Sounds like a Ralph Steadman illustration.
