As the McCain voters vow to stifle an Obama presidency.
Obama speaks of unit, John McCain speaks of unity – but his supporters speak of “Keeping an eye” on Obama.
So many bought into the lies of the McCain camp this is what is left over.
Just the mention of the Democrat’s name elicited boos from the sea of teary-eyed McCain supporters at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, Arizona.
Members of the dejected crowd shouted “no way!” when McCain promised to work with Obama.
Other McCain voters took their frustrations to the Internet, finding solidarity on anti-Obama sites.
“We have to watch this guy and not give him an inch,” one McCain supporter wrote. “The same way he criticized every move of President Bush. We have to make things as difficult for him as he did for Bush.”
This is where politicians should take responsibility for what they say during a campaign. Who knows – it may be that legislation is brought in to stem the tide of such negativity.
The fact that in this election so much bile was allowed isn’t surprising to Americans – this happens every four years. Why? I have no idea – it is like it is expected – but the fall out is that people are then expected just to forget what was said and then get on with your life. I suppose that this could be OK if the race was about 6 weeks – but this has been going on for nearly two years. Some of it has to stick – if not with the politicians throwing the mud, it does with the people who listen to such rhetoric.
The only thing that McCain can do is admit that all this was lies, smoke and mirrors.
NOW is the time to step up to the plate and admit how wrong he was.
