Just wanted to throw this out there. Today I saw the McCain I actually used to like, the John McCain who would defend Mexican immigrants when people at his rallies for senator would make racist statements. Today we saw the honorable McCain, who is being torn apart by his own morals, and the GOP’s lack thereof.
Here’s a few good McCain quotes from today,
We will be respectful. I admireand his accomplishments.
He’s a decent, family man, a citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with (him) on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign is all about.
I have to tell you, he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States.
Hopefully, this McCain sticks around, honestly, I would have voted for him in 2000, it’s an awful thing that he lost to Bush in 2000, however the same people that ran Bush’s disgraceful campaign are now running McCain’s.
The reasons I would have supported 00′ McCain were his immigration reform, which he now say’s he wouldn’t vote for today, his push for homosexual rights, and his former support for capping c02.
How anyone could even think, let alone stand in front of cameras and say they couldn’t vote for someone because they are an Arab, is not only unsurprising from the far Christian right, but absolutely horrifying. Some of the things being said, and largely ignored by the GOP show a side of America that most people would love to ignore, but thanks to McCain and co, its increasingly becoming apparent that if something isn’t done, we might be.
The hatred Palin (mostly), and McCain are bringing out in the conservative half of America is down right SCARY. The statement put out by the RNC is disgraceful to me and “regular” Americans everywhere.
Barack Obama’s attacks on Americans who support John McCain reveal far more about him than they do about John McCain. It is clear that Barack Obama just doesn’t understand regular people and the issues they care about.
What I consider a regular America, myself, would NEVER yell things like “terrorist”, “kill him”, “bomb Obama”, or racially degrading someone like the poor African American camera man in Florida whom was called things that no one should ever have to deal with. So any one reading this that supports McCain, are you one of these regular Americans that they are speaking of?
This division is sure as hell not what this country needs, and if you feel this way about the many great American’s, over 5 million, who are of the Muslim religion, then you have an awful grasp of the world as it is today.
I feel sorry for Mr. McCain, I know that this is not the person he is. Thankfully he is showing me that right now, but I worry his campaign has already went past the point of no return. It is over, he can’t go back without losing the base. He can save his dignity and moral soul by stopping this ridiculous rhetoric being put out by his assistants, and Palin.
So I beg you Senator McCain, remember your morals, the respectful person you started this campaign as, and please don’t let the hate mongers run your campaign into the mud like they are trying to run this country into the ground.
