You words might come back and haunt you
That looks just a little taken out of context.
It's not that much out context. McCain did support Bush on many key isssues and actively campaigned for him in both elections. I don't tink he can really have it both ways. While he paints himself as a "Maverick", he generally identifies himself as right-wing and a supporter of the Bush doctrine.
Correct...he was against bush before he was for bush before he was against bush again.
He was against bush when he was running against bush. He was for bush when bush was running for election and when he himself was running for election in order to gain his base that were not thrilled with him.
However since he got the nomination he has tried to distance himself from bush because he knows it hurts him with undecided voters.
When you have been on record and have said so many things supporting bush, to the point of almost bragging about it in order to gain your base...it is kind of hard to fault someone else for saying it and then want to distance yourself from it.
You nailed it. I can't stand either of them.
