McCain/Some chick from Canada 08: Folding Under Pressure

Because everyone's losing faith, and all the black people at my office say that America will never have a black president.

Oh, we're going to have a black President.  I'm not worried about that.

President Bush is ''absolutely radioactive'' and Republicans will suffer widespread election losses in November unless they distance themselves from him, said Rep. Tom Davis, a former leader of the party's House campaign committee.

''They've got to get some separation from the president,'' Davis, of Virginia, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television's ''Political Capital with Al Hunt,'' which aired Friday. Bush is the face of the party, and congressional Republicans are ''seen as just in lockstep with him on everything,'' Davis said.

Republicans would lose 20 to 25 House seats if the election were held today, Davis said. If Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is seen by voters as ''Bush III,'' he will lose by 20 percentage points, said Davis, who chaired the National Republican Congressional Committee from 1998 to 2002.

If it's McCain '08, I'll probably exile myself in Europe for a few years, actually. Mostly because I want to, anyways. But I can blame it on McCain! Yay!

But, really, I can't wait for debates between Obama and McCain. He's just as senile as Bush is and is going to say all kinds of insane shit. I have no doubts about that.

I think the crucial key is to get Clinton on board the Obama train. Although I think she's insane and awful, her supporters defecting to McCain is equally insane and awful. I hate Democrats.

Bush being dumb hurt him in the elections and in public opinion.... how?  I'd argue it still isn't a major factor in his current polls.

I suppose the argument is that times have changed and Bush is now poorly thought of but people have different reasons for that.  People are still used to defending Bush against being "dumb"; stupidity vs intelligence became an elitist and meanie trap that Kerry fell into, and so can Obama.

Obama has already gone through the "elitist" flap, so I'm sure he's on the watchout for that kind of thing. (A black man is elitist? Crazy times, these.)

I think McCain is more apt to say the kinds of things that are completely insane, like singing "Bomb Iran". Bush may be mentally retarded, but the things he screws up tend to be the kinds of things you'd forgive a third grader for, so it's kind of cute and endearing to most people. "Oh look, he said 'blackies' instead of 'African-Americans'!"

With McCain, it'll be, "Oh look, he said 'cotton-pickin' ni**er' instead of 'Obama'!"

That's my prediction, anyways.

To be fair, Bush loves 'blackies'.

Ha... From 2000:

Quote
JIM LEHRER: Finally, for the record, you have not lost your desire to be President of the United States, have you?

SEN. JOHN McCAIN: Certainly it's been put in deep cold storage.

JIM LEHRER: But you haven't lost it?

SEN. JOHN McCAIN: Well, in 2004, I expect to be campaigning for the reelection of President George W. Bush, and by 2008, I think I might be ready to go down to the old soldiers home and await the cavalry charge there.

Asked whether he’d be interested in Cheney had the vice president not already have served under Bush for two terms, McCain said: “I don’t know if I would want him as vice president. He and I have the same strengths. But to serve in other capacities? Hell, yeah.”
