Credit for this goes completely to Pat Flatley of MyDD. He doesn't have an account here, and said that he would love for anyone to cross-post it on his behalf.

As we all know, McCain's electoral prospects in the November election depends on the support of independent voters; in a recent Rasmussen poll, only 42% of them believe that McCain's presidency will be a third Bush term. McCain himself has tried to wrap himself around Obama's message of change.

Below is the 54-second video from Meet the Press (June, 2005) that will solidify the view of McCain as nothing more than Bush v2.

My quick transcript:

The fact is that I have agreed with President Bush far more than I have disagreed. And on the transcendent issues, the most important issues of our day, I have been totally in agreement and support of President Bush. So, have we had some disagreements on some issues - particularly domestic issues? Yes, but I will argue my conservative record of voting with anyone's, and I will also submit that my support for President Bush has been active and very impassioned on issues that are important to the American people. And I am particularly talking about the war on terror, war in Iraq, national security, national defense, support of men and women in the military, fiscal discipline, a number of other issues; I strongly disagree with any assertion that I have been more at odds with the President of the United States than I have been in agreement

Please send this to everyone you know!

Hat tips also go to Jed Report, Chumley, USArmyParatrooper,  dday, and the original author, Sam Stein of The Huffington Post, all of whom found this video before me.I'll leave this diary up, though, as it looks like most people here haven't seen this before.

Update 2:
Since I seem to have your attention for now, I would like to use it by pointing you to the fact that the U.S. Army is spending your tax dollars to broadcast smears against Obama. Please put that diary on the rec list as well, so people can see it. Thanks.
(Update 2.1: Its on the rec list now. Thanks!)

Update 3:
The Jed Report has spliced a nice video together, contrasting McCain's words in 2008 with this video.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
