Whether its tax cuts for the rich, Iraq, Iran, lobbyist love, opposition to the new bipartisan G.I. Bill– even torture– John McCain continues to morph into George W. Bush.
Congressional Quarterly reports that in 2007, “Maverick” McCain supported Bush with his Senate vote 95% of the time, and thus far in 2008, a perfect 100%.
The political liability for doing so was demonstrated yesterday when a planned Bush fundraiser for McCain at the Phoenix Convention Center had to be canceled because not enough people were expected to show. Instead, it was moved to a private house, well out of range of those nasty recording devices called cameras, which would have put the two in the same frame.
You can run but you can’t hide, McSame.
MoveOn has more.
