John McCain's new campaign says that he is no Bush. Do you agree that Bush and McCain are different?

Grace W. Bush 2008/07/09 18:23:55
No. McCain is another Bush. We are not blind.
Yes. McCain and Bush are a lot different than what people think. He is not another Bush.

This is the best strategy in this election I have seen since Obama's "Fight the Smears." Is about time John McCain fights back about what people mostly judge him for, claiming that he is Bush's 3rd term. John McCain and George Bush have a lot in common, but these two Republicans have also had some high profile differences, and McCain's presidential campaign is more than willing to point them out. From climate change to his first calls for a surge of U.S. troops into Iraq, McCain has not always seen eye to eye with President Bush or, for that matter, other GOP leaders on issues of policy for the better part of the past decade. His open defiance of the Republican establishment has helped to bolster his image as a "maverick" lawmaker willing to shun party loyalty and obedience for personal principle. And seeing that this election is likely to be won by the candidate who successfully attracts the most support of uncommitted independents, expect to hear more about the McCain and Bush differences in the coming months.

"We feel like that is a record that must be given attention every time Barack Obama falsely accuses John McCain of running for George Bush's third term," said Nicolle Wallace, a veteran Bush operative who joined Team McCain in May. "There is no truth to that."

    McCain is pro choice and that alone makes him way different than Mr. Bush. He is much more liberal in some areas and his voting record has been in large part anti Bush. People who think he is another Bush are just parroting what the far left propagates. They all need to think for themselves and actually do some research for themselves.

    McCain is NOT pro choice. He wants to overturn Roe v. Wade.

    Maybe You need to research McCain-It is right on his website-My Parroting comes right from the man himself-Now you go do the research.

    McCain is like Bush. Neither McCain nor Bush is a racist like Obama. McCain and Bush both love America, and Obama doesn't. McCain and Bush are both Christians, while Obama is a muslim who says he is a Christian. Neither Bush nor McCain are phonies, but Obama.......well, you get the idea by now.

    I'm actually using undecided to mean "none of the above." They are not identical. But they are very, very similar in a lot of very, very important areas. The economy and how to fix it being the most important. What foreign policy should be like for another. The whole fake "scare them until they love me" mantra that seems to be front and center for most Republicans these days is yet another similarity.

    He does seem to differ on global warming, although his desire to do yet more drilling makes me wonder how much teeth he would put into that belief.

    These soldiers?

    Four U.S. soldiers in Iraq are charged with participation in the "rape and murder of a young Iraqi woman and three members of her family," the U.S. military said Sunday. http://www.cnn.com/2006/LAW/0...

    Late last year, Swadi, one of seven female lawyers now representing women detainees in Abu Ghraib, began to piece together a picture of systemic abuse and torture perpetrated by US guards against Iraqi women held in detention without charge. This was not only true of Abu Ghraib, she discovered, but was, as she put it, "happening all across Iraq". http://www.guardian.co.uk/wor...

    I don't support osama or Obama. I did not join any cult...not Obama's or any other cult just so you know. I agree with what you said about his pastor and his father. I just don't support McCain either. I am disapointed in our choices for POTUS. But it isn't nice of you to make nasty inuendos about someone's religion. I would never post a vulgar picture of Christ to make fun of you.

    There are many things Bush pushed for and McCain fought against. To say they are the same, is like saying Clinton and Obama are the same because they are both democrats. We know Clinton and Obama are two sides of the same coin, as Bush and McCain are. They are in the same party but different.
