No, I'm not trying to change your vote if you're headed to the booth with Obama in mind. But, this article spells out why I'm voting for McCain.
I will go down with the McCain ship. I'd rather lose an election than lose my bearings.
McCain's critics are offended that he raised the issue of William Ayers. What's astonishing is that Obama was himself not offended by William Ayers.
Most polls indicate Obama will win on November 4, and as much as I oppose that idea, I will enjoy listening to what flies out of Biden's mouth over the next four years. There is no mystery in the fact that he's been muzzled for the past several weeks. And, then when they let him speak, this scenario unfolded:
There's just no comparison. Obama's own running mate warned this week that Obama's youth and inexperience will invite a crisis -- indeed a crisis "generated" precisely to test him. Can you be serious about national security and vote on Nov. 4 to invite that test?
And how will he pass it? Well, how has he fared on the only two significant foreign policy tests he has faced since he's been in the Senate? The first was the surge. Obama failed spectacularly. He not only opposed it. He tried to denigrate it, stop it and, finally, deny its success.
The second test was Georgia, to which Obama responded instinctively with evenhanded moral equivalence, urging restraint on both sides. McCain did not have to consult his advisers to instantly identify the aggressor.
OK, I'm done.
