Lie-berals have complained that putting McCain in the White House would be like giving George Bush a third term. Although, they never say what would be so wrong about a third term for Bush. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that McCain would really be akin to Dick Cheney getting a first term as President.
Dick Cheney’s daughter Liz, not the gay one, said on MSNBC, “At the same time, I think on the really important issues that face the country, on issues like the war on terror and the economy, Senator McCain in fact is advocating those policies that those of us who supported President Bush and the Vice President believe are the right ones for this nation.”
And McCain is efusive in his praise for Cheney, calling him “one of the most capable, experienced, intelligent and steady vice presidents this country has ever had.”
While writing his 2007, biography of Cheney, writer Stephen Hayes asked McCain if he would like to have Cheney as his VP. 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.”
We may not be able to get a third Bush term, but since Cheney can’t run himself. Maybe, though John McCain with his similiar strengths could be the next best thing to President Cheney.
