Republican front runner, John W. McCain, is proving that he's the right candidate for 1988. Oops, I mean 2008. McCain received the endorsement from former President George H.W. Bush (father of the disaster currently occupying the White House). Good news for those who value the endorsement of a failed, one term former president.
In tribute to the 41st president, McCain decided to revive the "no new taxes" pledge that worked so well for Bush in 1980s.
All this Bush-McCain love is coming at a time when The Mac's advisers are trying to figure out a way to use the current president to their advantage. Despite having an approval rating that has been stuck in the high twenties for two years, McCain is still looking to shore up the far-right base of the Republican party by framing his campaign as a Bush third term. This, of course, shows how detached from reality and completely out-of-touch the Republican party truly is.
I can't believe people aren't flocking to a 72 year-old warmonger who has no understanding of economics. How unfair to such a "straight-talker."
UPDATE: At the press conference with Bush 41, McCain commented on his running for a third Bush term, "And I’d be honored to be anywhere with him under any circumstances. I am proud of this president’s strategy in Iraq."
