McCain Comes Full Circle... TO BUSH!

Like Bush, like McCain.

[Tucker] Eskew's talent notwithstanding, he was loathed by McCain's 2000 campaign team. When the media first reported push-poll phone calls from Voter/Consumer Research, a company hired by he Bush campaign, asking South Carolinians if they knew about McCains role in the S&L crisis and his scandal as a member of the Keating Five, it was Eskew -- Bushs South Carolina spokesman who acknowledged, and defended, the calls.

"Show me a baseless comment in those questions about McCain," Eskew told the Charleston Post and Courier in February 2000.
McCain ally Lindsey Graham then a South Carolina GOP congressman, now a senator, decried the tactics Eskew defended, holding a press conference along with two local Republican officials to denounce the phone calls.

"What happened last weekend is the great minds apparently went to Austin, Texas and all they could think of for a game plan was trash out John McCain," Graham said. "That's not where I want my party to go."

And guess where GOP professional smear artist Tucker Eskew is? Guess who's bringing on Bush's campaign team, the same people that were responsible for smearing John McCain in 2000? You guessed it: John McCain!

No wonder why he's broken his promises to run a clean campaign as he attacks Barack Obama... McCain in 2008 has forsaken McCain in 2000 to become the next George W. Bush!
