John McCain: A Third Bush Term

Love. Love will keep them together.

McCain-Bush forever.

As John McCain traveled to the White House this afternoon to receive President Bush's formal endorsement, the newly anointed Republican presidential nominee confirmed to voters once and for all that a vote for McCain is a vote for a third Bush term. Though he's cast himself as an Independent "maverick" who has no problem breaking ranks with the Republican Party, the truth is on the economy, the war in Iraq, health care, and many other issues McCain stands in lockstep with Bush and his disastrous policies. And after seven years of failed Bush leadership, that's the last thing the American people want.

"John McCain just doesn't get it," said Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. "American families are struggling with higher costs of living, stagnant wages and a mortgage crisis that threatens their homes and financial security, but as President Bush himself said today, John McCain is no change at all. All he offers is four more years of the failed Bush economy, an endless war in Iraq, and shameless hypocrisy on ethics reform. The fact is, the American people want change, not another out-of-touch Bush Republican, and Democrats welcome the opportunity to draw this contrast for voters."
