Worries about McCain

David Le Vine

Republican Senator Thad. Cochran from Mississippi, who has known John McCain for more than 30 years, said, “The thought of him being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic, he is hot tempered, and he worries me.”

Retired Major General Paul Eaton (who was responsible for training the Iraqi military) said, “I like McCain. I respect McCain. But I’m a little worried about his knee-jerk response factor. I think it is a little scary. I think this guy’s first reactions are not necessarily the best reactions. I believe that he acts on impulse.”

Retired Air Force Major General Scott Gration said, “It is all about character. Who can motivate willing followers? Who has the vision? Who can inspire people? I have tremendous respect for John McCain, but I would not follow him.”

His fellow Republican Senator Peter Dominici from New Mexico said, “I decided I didn’t want this guy’s finger anywhere near the trigger.”

Mr. McCain has made it clear that his priority is being a “man of action” and a bold commander in chief rather than being a thoughtful president of the United States. Furthermore, he is an impetuous, short-tempered old man who should not have his finger anywhere near the trigger!

He is a man who will likely continue George Bush’s legacy of confrontations and war. And even worst, he is a man who could well lead us into a nuclear holocaust.

No, that is not a prediction, but it is a real concern.
