Re McCain dissing Bush....
....today Rush launched into a wonderful invective on McCain. I love when Rush lets it all out.
One thing Rush warned McCain about, and Rush was very, very serious, is he warned McCain not to go beating on his party’s President.
Rush went on, and I agreed with every word, that while Bush has low approval, he’s now a lame duck and locked in a war that, like all long wars, is very unpopular. But the Republican base, and many Democrats save those with BDS, do not HATE George Dubya Bush.
Rush is right. We don’t hate Bush. He’s an affable guy and if ever President got it all thrown at him, it’s Bush. Us idiots out here in la-la land who carry this country on its back whilst raising the citizens and soldiers of tomorrow understand this.
Rush warned that if McCain should lambaste this President over Katrina, when McCain has to know that ninty percent of any failure was due to state and local, that McCain could never hope to regain the respect of the Republican base.
So far McCain’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to be attacking Bush real bad but we’ll see.
