You McCain guys help me out
John McCain has made earmarks the official bogeyman of his campaign. he has portrayed Obama as a dirty rotten earmarker, and he says if he is elected, he will veto every earmark that comes across his desk. Well, he just voted for a bail out package that contained ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS IN EARMARKS. He now goes out on the stump and tells everyone how this bill is the good thang. Did he or did he not just blow his chance to be President by missing his chance to put his money where his mouth was, and by becoming the greatest public hypocrite in the history of politics, or is he relapsed into that opium habit he picked up in Southeast Asia? So help me out, what the fuck is up with this guy?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
