John McCain – Treacherous Coward?

September 28, 2008 at 10:52 am | Posted in Politics | Leave a comment

My mother always told me that when you talk to people, you should look at them in the eye, lest they look upon you as treacherous. At last Friday’s presidential debate, John McCain showed his true colors – he hardly looked at Barack Obama, even when making good points against the Democrat. To me, such a person cannot be given the trust of running our country. McCain also looked afraid, not approaching Obama directly but circling around the podium, much like a laughing hyena or vulture approaches his prey.

John McCain symbolizes what America has become after eight years of Republican rule – obnoxious, intolerant, and unwilling to directly interact with those who disagree with him. Barack Obama symbolizes what America would like to be – eloquent, rational, and able to have a civil relationship with those who disagree with him.

In these uncertain times, we need someone more like Obama and less like Bush^H^H^H^HMcCain.

[Update: I am not questioning or doubting McCain as a soldier/airman/war hero, just what he has been doing as a politician.]
