Billboards Show John McCain Giving George Bush A Big Hug

Billboards Show John McCain Giving George Bush A Big Hug

By Robert Paul Reyes

Democrats are welcoming John McCain and the Republicans to St. Paul with billboards depicting John McCain warmly embracing President George W. Bush.

 
A picture speaks a thousand words and this one tell quite a story. McCain appears to have his eyes closed as he gives Bush a full-throated bear hug. McCain`s endorsement of the Bush agenda is not superficial, he has voted with Dubya more than 90% of the time.
 
Bush seems to be ignoring McCain, as he looks off into the distance. Nobody likes a yes man or a sycophant, even Bush is disgusted at McCain`s unseemly adoration.
 
McCain needs to open his eyes and see the colossal failure of Bush`s foreign policies in Iraq and Afghanistan. McCain needs to see that even three years after Katrina, New Orleans is still suffering from Bush`s neglect.
 
McCain seems to be hanging onto Bush for support, the senior senator from Arizona is a physically and mentally weak person. McCain is too intellectually lazy to come up with his own platform, he is running as a clone of Bush. Not to put too fine a point on it, but McCain is too old to be president, his cancer-ravaged body will not hold up to the rigors of the White House.
 
The Billboard has the caption: More Politics As Usual. Does This Look Like
Change To You? The caption is superfluous, the billboard tells the story.
