A McCain Presidency... Too Risky for America.

It doesn't have to be Barack, but his surrogates should go Daisy on McCain.

We begin with this:  The last President that we had who spoke cavalierly got us into an unholy mess called Iraq... i.e. "Bring em on!!

Then we proceed to:

John McCain has demonstrated angry, erratic and risk-taking behavior and cannot be trusted with his finger on the nuclear button.

He jokes about wanting to bomb Iran.

Republican Senator Thad Cochran R-Miss., said about McCain. "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine," "He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."

More below...

Sen. Cochran, later told a Mississippi newspaper that he saw McCain, during a trip to Nicaragua led by former Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan., grab an associate of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega by his shirt collar and lift him out of his chair.

He is an unapologetic high-stake gambler.  As reported in Time Magazine: "For McCain, jaunts to the craps table helped burnish his image as a political hot dog who relished the thrill of a good fight, even if the risk of failure was high."

And when it comes to getting us into wars, he's demonstrated erratic behavior vascilating between bravado and delusional denial... whether it is suggesting that the war in Iraq would be easy... and then saying it was easy and that we WERE greeted as liberators or his careless responses to questions about how long american troops will be in Iraq.

Is this so hard?  C'mon Democrats, let's see the ad...

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.

      and that was back in 1964. Can anyone remember a single memorable Kerry ad? Gore ad? Clinton ad? Dukakis ad? Mondale? McGovern? Humphrey? Nah. It's all been pablum since 1964. Are Dems trying to lose?

      Seem to recall that old LBJ did pretty well in that 1964 election, except for the Deep South, which apparently yearns for mushroom clouds.  Isn't it about time to return to the political offensive after 44 years on the flat-footed defensive?

      It's starting to feel like deja Kerry all over again.
