It is the contention of many of us that a John McCain Presidency would amount to third term for George W. Bush. The most obvious Bush aspect of the rickety platform the Republicans are erecting is the missing exit strategy for Iraq.
But it is not only poor foreign policy that "distinquishes" the Bush-McCain partnership. They also share an affinity for economic advisors who seem more concerned with the welfare of the big business boys than middle America, and who have helped to saddle us with the current recession. Take McCain's right hand man, Phil Gramm -- a likely close advisor to the President should McCain prevail this fall.
SW at Oh!Pinion and the late Molly Ivins take on McCain's buddy the former Senator Gramm here.
