obama-mccainEditor’s Note – Here’s a thought…where would we be as a country had John McCain won the election in 2008?

Would there be a tea party?  Would the balance of power in Congress have shifted this past November?

McCain is baffling, to say the least.  How he can overlook all that has happened over the past two years and make the claim that Obama is working to “advance our country’s cause” is proof positive that there should be a mandatory retirement age in Congress.

Obama represents an unsustainable big government, entitlement society where the citizens are dependent on the federal government.  McCain seems to be confused as to what our country’s cause is.  Either that, or he sees value in the ‘progressive’ agenda of the far left.

But the Arizona Republican this weekend called Obama a “patriot” intent on using his presidency to “advance our country’s cause” and rejected accusations — many coming from members of his own party and the tea party movement — “that his policies and beliefs make him unworthy to lead America.”

McCain made his comments in an article he wrote for The Washington Post opinion page, posted on Saturday, in which he praised Obama for giving a “terrific speech” in Tucson at a tribute for victims of the shooting rampage that took place there a week ago.

McCain said that Obama had “comforted and inspired the country” and performed an important service by encouraging “every American who participates in our political debates — whether we are on the left or right or in the media — to aspire to a more generous appreciation of one another and a more modest one of ourselves.”
