    He will be worse than Bush.

    McCain's voting record:

    September 2007: McCain voted against the Webb amendment calling for adequate troop rest between deployments.

    July 2007: McCain voted against a plan to drawdown troop levels in Iraq. At the time, an ABC poll found that 63% thought the invasion was not worth it

    March 2007: McCain was too busy to vote on a bill that would require the start of a drawdown in troop levels within 120 days

    February 2007: For such a strong supporter of the escalation, McCain didn’t even bother to show up and vote against a resolution condemning it.

    June 2006: McCain voted against a resolution that Bush start withdrawing troops but with no timeline to do so.

    May 2006: McCain voted against an amendment that would provide $20 million to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for health care facilities.

    April 2006: McCain was one of only 13 Senators to vote against $430,000,000 for the Department of Veteran Affairs for Medical Services for outpatient care and treatment for veterans.

    March 2006: McCain voted against increasing Veterans medical services funding by $1.5 billion in FY 2007 to be paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes.

    March 2004: McCain once again voted for abusive tax loopholes over veterans when he voted against creating a reserve fund to allow for an increase in Veterans' medical care by $1.8 billion by eliminating abusive tax loopholes. Jeez, McCain really loves those tax loopholes for corporations, since he voted for them over our veterans' needs.

    October 2003: McCain voted to table an amendment by Senator Dodd that called for an additional $322,000,000 for safety equipment for United States forces in Iraq and to reduce the amount provided for reconstruction in Iraq by $322,000,000.

    April 2003: McCain urged other Senate members to table a vote (which never passed) to provide more than $1 billion for National Guard and Reserve equipment in Iraq related to a shortage of helmets, tents, bullet-proof inserts, and tactical vests.

    August 2001: McCain voted against increasing the amount available for medical care for veterans by $650,000,000. To his credit, he also voted against the 2001 Bush tax cuts, which he now supports making permanent, despite the dire financial condition this country is in, and despite the fact that he indicated in 2001 that these tax cuts unfairly benefited the very wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

    The sixteen words replace right into a lie (niger/yellowcake), Saddam being an immenent threat to the U. S. as quickly as we had no intelligence immediately from the country is a lie and so is "i can't attempt to alter social secure practices" interior the debates with Kerry. i actually pay interest to those issues. 0.5 the country and nil.5 the human beings have been being led down a direction to conflict via fearmongering and hype......all of this counsel is attainable so which you will study. It purely relies upon on who you blame, the CIA, different intelligence communities or the administration....I blame each and every of the above. it incredibly is the required subject BUSH AND HIS ADMIN have been the only ones outdoors of the CIA that had conscious approximately each and every of the information being accumulated. no one else had this get entry to. you've gotten national secure practices without conflict, you've gotten national secure practices without warrantless wiretaps and you're starting to be national secure practices without GOP president. Why do you and others continuously have this "the two/or" attitude to something? Its such as you think of your theory is the only theory and all others are issues, not ideas. Its call absolutist thinking and its certainly one of those fantasy. McCain is extra of a third-term-bush than he's 'left' of something. p.c.. a coverage, platform or project and shall we circulate over their variations and similarities. Bush and McCain at the instant are not alike in all while it is composed of character or character, yet thats one factor of the Presidency. His coverage is incredibly plenty in step with Bush's, till it incredibly is purely an election ploy and we see a return to his "maverick" days of the previous if/while he wins. If this occurs i may well be extra suitable than happy.

    I disagree with it, It started with far liberal medias like the ones in California for the political puropses. I have met both of President Bush and John MC Cain in person at the different times. They are very different and don't see the same thing in the leadership.

    Yep. Either that or McBush.

    There was a time he was against the tax cuts, now he's flip-flopped and wants to make them permanent. There was a time he was against the Iraq War, now he wants to keep us there for 100 years and won't admit that it cant' be won. There was a time he was against torture now he votes against making waterboarding illegal.

    No. I've listened to him speak, and I know some of his stances on the issues. He's almost nothing like Bush. He doesn't agree with the Bush tax cuts. He doesn't like the idea of the war in Iraq.

    Some people have nothing better to do than copy a poor sarcastic nickname from other Obama supporters. That's all.
