If this story is in anyway accurate, George W. Bush just gave away his legacy.
For some reason, Dubya believes Obama deserves his silence, but the country needs to be told they are wrong.
“Naming Palin makes Bush think less of McCain as a man,” a Republican official familiar with Bush’s thinking told the Daily News.
As a man? What is that? The good ol’ boys got together and said, what’s with the chick? Honestly, “as a man,” is some sort of cretin language.
“He thinks McCain ran a lousy campaign with an unqualified running mate and destroyed any chance of winning by picking Palin.”
Yes McCain ran a lousy campaign, and was prepared to put a flaming liberal on the ticket to run with him. But Palin is not unqualified, nor did she destroy McCain’s chances.
Palin roused the base, McCain was unqualified to run as president precisely because he was hostile toward the base.
Do I honestly have to hold Dubya’s hand and teach him politics 101?
This is exactly why primaries are so important. The people of Arizona who worked so hard to get rid of McCain must be absolutely fuming. The boys are coalescing, and falling in line, every damn one of them against Palin.
It is up to the grassroots to throw them over.
