How is McCain different from Bush?

McCain is for carrying on Bush's war mongering foreign policy which is the reason for the deficit, national debt and spending. McCain is for tax cuts which is also reason for the deficit. He is against government spending which he cannot avoid as it is the war monger foreign policy that is the cause of most of the government expenditure. He is just extending Bushonomics.

@talk72000,
In additions he is for deregulation which is the cause of the financial mess. He doesn't offer solutions but seems to want to put the American economy in a bigger mess.

@talk72000,
That's a very good point about wars and cost of wars, but most people aren't able to connect the two. McCain has followed in Bush's policies, so what little difference he has with Bush will not make too much difference to our country's economy or war-mongering.

McCain would love to become CIC, because he never made it to Admiral like his father and grandfather. Let's not forget that he graduated fifth from the bottom from the Naval Academy. He's not up to the task - even with his 26-years of "experience."

His selection of Palin should be the warning for all voters. He continues to talk about Obama's inexperience, but doesn't make the same standard for his veep. What's wrong with this picture?

How? He's older... his wife is hotter... he spent the war in Vietnam instead of an Alabama duck blind. I don't like McCain as a candidate.... and I lost respect for him as a man when he started cozying up to bush..... but he's a million times the man that bush will ever be. Truman Capote is a million times the man bush will ever be IMO.

@cicerone imposter,
Bush and his buddies keep talking about 100 billion a year we are spending on the Iraq war but it is more like 250 billion a year. That much money would go a long way if we spent it on the infastructure in this country.

@rabel22,
That's right, and yet our congress still doesn't see that simple solution for our country's well-being. I've written to Senator Feinstein, because they're only looking at buying mortgages blindly without knowing what their true values are.

However, to be fair, with the market for those instruments at basement prices, it's true that the taxpayers may end up winning. It depends entirely on congress not spending even more then they have the past eight years under Bush.

@Bi-Polar Bear,
Other than his personal history and animosity towards W, McCain is a clone of W as all the important policies are almost identical - foreign war mongering, tax cuts, cut domestic spending, increase defense spending and outsourcing of more high paying jobs as ex-HP CEO Fortina called 'right-sourcing', and deregulation to create more chaos as Phil Gramm, the instigator for business mergers and removalof government oversight and inspection, is the chief economic advisor for McCain.

@talk72000,
talk, People have short memories: they forgot (already) the many people Bush appointed to posts with the necessary requisite experience but hired instead total incompetence. Top it off with McCain's veep choice that should have been millions (or billions) of red flags, but we still see many conservatives supporting Palin. Remember how the Attorney General's department only hired conservatives? That's against the law, but what can we expect from a AT who authorized torture in our name?

The list is too long to post here, but it gives enough cause for Americans to wake up and smell the coffee.

McCain has way shittier campaign people. Bush was able to hide his incompetence [from a large number of imbeciles] while McCain's handlers seem on emphasizing his. Not that John isn't doing his damndest to help.

@JTT,
It's almost funny about what McCain keeps telling us (repeatedly) about how he tried to warn about the Mae and Mac train wreck, but he now has his top adviser who was paid until just last month - and still getting benefits from that "relationship." He even lied about it.

That people can't add two plus two goes to show how ignorant Americans are.
