“If you want the same as we’ve had in the last seven years,” Mr. Obama said, “then I think John McCain’s going to be a great choice.”
McCain needs to be consistently and persistently tied to George W. Bush. If you liked a failed war with Iraq, you’ll love a McCain war with Iran. If you liked fear-mongering and accusations of Dolchstosslegende under Bush, McCain will knock your socks off. If you liked youthful Supreme Court judges itching to roll back abortion rights, McCain will happily continue to young arch-conservatives to the highest court in the land.
It’s great to see Senator Obama using this line and I hope he continues to do it, even while the Democratic nomination remains undecided.
