McCain’s Split Personality

Watching John McCain flip flop these days is like watching a whirling top spin out of control. McCain it seems has “2 faces” these days, one is the face of the Washington insider and the other is the face of the Washington outsider: 

John McCain embraces and expels Washington like an accordion player belting out a song.

Squeeze in and he touts his vast knowledge of the capital city. Draw out and he casts himself a reformer bent on changing its ways.

It’s a remarkable dichotomy echoed throughout the Republican establishment, as a party that’s held the White House for the past eight years tries to retain its grip in what has shaped up as a change election.

McCain is playing more notes than anyone can count these days, and he’s “projecting a dual image: the outside insider.”

Squeeze in, and he’s the new capital tour guide for his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.[…]

Draw out, and he’s never set foot in the city himself.[…]

Squeeze in, and he’s got the Washington skill set needed to right the country’s Wall Street woes.[…]

Draw out, and he distances himself from the administration of the Republican president who has endorsed him.[…]

There are even times when McCain does both — squeeze in and draw out — in the same thought.

John McCain has become the biggest two faced liar in Washington.

Years ago, McCain “embraced legislation to broadly deregulate the banking and insurance industries, helping to sweep aside a thicket of rules established over decades in favor of a less restricted financial marketplace that proponents said would result in greater economic growth.”

But now, as Bush[Co] is scrambling to prevent the fall of A.I.G., and attempting to “stabilize a tumultuous Wall Street, the Republican presidential nominee is scrambling to recast himself as a champion of regulation to end “reckless conduct, corruption and unbridled greed” on Wall Street.”

CNN did a thorough debunking of McCain’s lies and the verdict is in, “John McCain and Sarah Palin Palin are lying their way into the White House (h/t C&L):

    I know, I know, you left wing hacks are finally owning up to the fact that Sarah Palin will be the President in 2012. Obama goes to Iraq and attempts to persuade the American military leaders to have the troops come home AFTER he is elected. What kind of crap is that? You want sinister, there it is. And this man surrounds himself with the likes of Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and Tony Rezko. There is no honor among thieves. Well maybe there is in Obama’s case. Obama, Pelosi and the rest of the Dem gang must go and they will. The bitter Americans clinging to their guns and religion will speak in November and right this country.

    Sarah Palin is a JOKE.  She is unqualified to be President just like Bush was. What Bush has done to this country is no joke.I hope that the American people don’t fall for the rhetoric again. I sure that Karl rove is plotting to steal another election, just like the last two, nut I don’t think it will work this time.  Would the country and the world be better off if Al Gore had become President in 2000 or if John Kerry had become President in 2004?  Anyone with half a brain knows the answer to that question.  Vote Obama- Biden!! You too, SteveJJ!!
