Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


Scott Ritter On McCain

More interesting news about McCain that came out this evening that goes along with McCain's attitude about something so serious.-Mem

During a rally in Northern Iowa University this morning, John McCain made a strange remark that only serves to cement the notion that he does not respect Barack Obama:

When I'm elected president We're going to stop spending $700 billion to buy oil from countries that don't like us very much," John McCain said at Northern Iowa University this morning.

"You know, the other night in the debate with Senator Obama, I said his eloquence is admirable, but pay attention to his words. We talk about offshore drilling and he said he would quote, consider, offshore drilling. We talked about nuclear power, well it has to be safe, environment, blah, blah, blah."

While McCain is targeting Obama's eloquence as empty words with his "blah, blah, blah" comment, it's curious why he would use safeguards for nuclear power as the vehicle for this attack. The line makes McCain seem not only callous but also dismissive of a very real concern regarding nuclear power. It recalls the moment during the third presidential debate when McCain used air quotes while discussing a woman's health as a factor in her having an abortion.
McCain continues to say that he is different then Bush and that he will make changes but his records prove different and his actions show a person who goes from one view to another during this election. John McCain doesn't even know what he stands for. Why would the American people? What frightens me is the division he and his poor choice for VP, Sarah Palin has promoted since this campaign. This country needs to be strong and united more then ever now.-Mem
