Why This Military Veteran Won't Support John McBush

Check this out.

I can verify that John has an infamous reputation for being a hot head. He has a quick and explosive temper that many have experienced first hand. Folks, quite honestly that is not the finger I want next to that red button.

It is also disappointing to see him take on and support Bush's war in Iraq, even stating we might be there for another 100 years. For me John represents the entrenched and bankrupt policies of Washington-as-usual. The past 7 years have proven to be disastrous for our country. And I believe John's views on war, foreign policy, economics, environment, health care, education, national infrastructure and other important areas are much the same as those of the Bush administration.

I'm disappointed to see John represent himself politically in ways that are not accurate. He is not a moderate Republican. On some issues he is a maverick. But his voting record is far to the right. I fear for his nominations to our Supreme Court, and the consequent continuing loss of individual freedoms, especially regarding moral and religious issues. John is not a religious person, but he has taken every opportunity to ally himself with some really obnoxious and crazy fundamentalist ministers lately. I was also disappointed to see him cozy up to Bush because I know he hates that man. He disingenuously and famously put his arm around the guy, even after Bush had intensely disrespected him with lies and slander. So on these and many other instances, I don't see that John is the "straight talk express" he markets himself to be.

I guess those military veterans that know John McBush best refuse to support him. So why won't the corporate media cover this? Oh, that's right. This may hurt their dear "McMaverick Darling".

Still, forward this to all your friends.

I've dangled this to a few media outlets, including the ones you suggested!

Also forward to your friends the names "VoteVets", "Veterans for Obama", "Blue Star Families for Obama" and (if they have strong stomachs) "Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain". LOTS of good info. from these groups on McCain's failure to support the troops and veterans. And, from all but that last group, how Obama has done much better.
