A Bridge To Nowhere Part 4

George Will wrote this article:

"The queen had only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. 'Off with his head!' she said without even looking around."
-- "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"

Under the pressure of the financial crisis, one presidential candidate is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too high. It is not Barack Obama.

Channeling his inner Queen of Hearts, John McCain furiously, and apparently without even looking around at facts, said Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, should be decapitated. This childish reflex provoked the Wall Street Journal to editorialize that "McCain untethered" -- disconnected from knowledge and principle -- had made a "false and deeply unfair" attack on Cox that was "unpresidential" and demonstrated that McCain "doesn't understand what's happening on Wall Street any better than Barack Obama does."

This is just another example of why McCain is not right for POTUS, and if he is elected he will tear the GOP apart in a way that will take 20 years, if ever, for it to recover. McCain is NOT a maverick as he likes to claim. He is a loose cannon. When he gets caught off guard he blurts out anything that he thinks makes him sound like a leader. Stating that he was POTUS, he would fire the head of the SEC, even though the POTUS can not do that.

Then he says on “60 Minutes” that he would replace Cox with Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic attorney general of New York. Getting scared now Republicans ?

Picking a completely unqualified person to be his VP is more loose cannon behavior. This after fighting with party leader to the bitter end for Joe Lieberman. All this “unhinged” behavior should be all the warnings voters should need to get off the “straight talk express”.

This is what people can expect to see from him at any time if he is elected. How do the people that support McCain because he will select better judicial selections than Obama justify that argument after all this ??
