The differences between McCain and Bush shouldn’t
be that difficult to see, but it seems as though many are trying to tie them together, though their differences are obvious and the tension between them has been ongoing.
Who remembers the 2000 Republican race? If you weren’t old enough to vote then and you think there’s no difference between McCain and Bush then you should do some research about that race.
McCain advocates the end to the detention of foreign terrorists in Cuba. Bush on the other hand thinks they should remain open.
Unlike Bush, McCain is against any forced interrogation methods, such as Water-boarding.
A week after the storm, McCain blasted Bush administration for the failed response to Hurricane Katrina.
The Bush administration has caused de-stabilization in the Middle East with the war in Iraq, some might say that because McCain voted for the war that he is to blame for that as well, but let’s face some reality there. The majority of Americans were for the war at the time because of the White House media propaganda, they were very convincing and we all heard the reports about WMD and we knew about Saddam trying to block the inspectors. Admit your own mistake about supporting the war and think before you hold it against McCain.
McCain wanted to use more troops for the surge, which shows his experience and from what we see now, might have been a good idea, but that ships sailed and what we have now is a de-stabilized region. So what can be done about that?
The Democrats want to set deadlines for pulling out the troops, which is basically impossible because you can’t remove troops from an unstable region safely. Ask anyone that you know that’s been in the military, it’s just not possible. McCain’s plan is to stabilize the region and set up bases like we have done in other countries such as Germany.
There are other differences between McCain and Bush, but I think the most important difference is that Bush is clearly incompetent and McCain, though not perfect (he’s only human, like the rest of us) has shown clear competence.
