Signing the McCain-Finegold travesty in the FIRST place was yet another proof of Bushs’ stupidity. His father puts Souter on the friggin’ court and Bush extols the virtues of unconstitutional legislation. Shrewd family, that.
At the time conservatives were angry, at McCain. No one seemed to blame the man who could have vetoed it but didn’t. His signing that and the 2001 farm bill were early signs that we had a RINO President.
