John McCain Should Mellow Out

John McCain Should Mellow Out

By Robert Paul Reyes

Sen. John McCain reminds me of the grouchy old codger with nothing better to do than to sit on his porch swing all day, salivating for the opportunity to yell at a kid not to walk on his grass.

John McCain A politician who could easily be mistaken for Scrooge should refrain from all unpleasantness, but McCain has recently taken to viciously attacking Obama.

McCain would be well advised not to remind the electorate that he has a well-deserved reputation for having the hottest temper in the Senate.

"After a week of slamming his opponent in a barrage of controversially negative advertisements, U.S. presidential hopeful John McCain spoke for more than 20 minutes Monday without mentioning Barack Obama by name once.

His audience seemed to like it.

`I want to hear more about the issues, not bickering between the candidates," said Ron Holden, a locomotive assembly worker who listened to the Republican senator from Arizona address staff at a large GE Transportation plant.`"

Voters don`t get a thrill seeing McCain wax apoplectic, he should take some Metamucil, mellow out and refrain from attacking Obama.

I can be magnanimous and give McCain some unsolicited advice, because he has no chance of winning the general election.
