    McCain as 'slick Willie'

    Posted by: Andoni

    “I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade.”
    John McCain, 1999

    “I do not support Roe v. Wade; it should be overturned.”
    John McCain, 2008

    Over the past two weeks, I’ve done a series of posts pointing out the many inconsistencies of Senator McCain, not over his entire career, but simply over the past 9 years, the time period during which he has been running for president.

    Yesterday’s New York Times has an analysis of some of McCain’s inconsistencies during his Senate career, including two major items that I missed. The Times points out that McCain switched his position on abortion (Roe v. Wade) and on Donald Rumsfield as Secretary of Defense.

    Over the course of my posts (here and here), I have pointed out McCain’s U-turns, retreats, or flipped positions on torture, immigration, tax cuts, campaign finance reform, divisive politics (Jerry Falwell), the Iraq War, gay marriage and the Confederate flag.

    This is a long list, involving substantial policy issues. So many changes over so short a time demonstrates that this guy does not show the character, leadership, resolve or straight-talk that his campaign is built upon.

    What so many zig zags show is that McCain has an aptitude for political dishonesty equal to or greater than "slick Willie" or even Mitt-flop Romney. If America decides to turn to a politician as slippery on the issues as Bill Clinton (and one who adamantly supports the Iraq War), then we ruly have learned nothing over the past 15 years.
