Cheney Endorsement Sinks McCain

I don’t know what idiots are running the McCain for President campaign are doing but McCain should fire all of their asses. I’m just an outside observer on this election but if President Bush has a 28% approval rating and the Vice President is lower than that, then you do not want them speaking up for you or endorsing you publicly in any shape or form. This election is not going to be won by any single political parties base but it can be lost by playing to that extremist base. Having Dick Cheney endorse John McCain publicly this late in the race for President was tantamount to tying an anchor to his right leg and pushing him off the pier. Who in their right mind thought this was going to swing moderate and independent voters? Or for that matter Democrats? How the hell is Dick Cheney and his endorsement going to sway the opinion of any Democrat considering McCain for President? Somebody went to morons and politics classes and didn’t even take notes over at the McCain campaign.

This opens up a huge talking point for Barack Obama and CNN has this on it…

Earlier Saturday, Sen. Barack Obama also hit key swing states, campaigning in Missouri, Colorado and Nevada and taking a jab at that day's endorsement of McCain by Vice President Dick Cheney.

At an event in Laramie, Wyoming, Cheney said he will vote for the McCain-Palin ticket.

"This year, of course, I'm not on the ballot, so I am here ... not to vote for me, but I want to join daughter Liz, who is with me today, join us in casting ... our ballots for John McCain and Sarah Palin," Cheney said.

Obama started his day with a morning rally in Henderson, Nevada, before heading to Pueblo, Colorado, and Springfield, Missouri.

"I'd like to congratulate Sen. McCain on this endorsement, because he really earned it. That endorsement didn't come easy," Obama said at the Pueblo rally.

He added that Cheney "knows that with John McCain, you get a twofer: George Bush's economic policy and Dick Cheney's foreign policy. And that is a risk the American people cannot afford to take."

If your mind is moderate or even independent in this election for President then the last thing you would want to see is any connection to the Bush administration in your candidate for President. This is supposed to be an election on change is it not? We know that Obama has consistently talked about change and that Senator McCain has gone 180 degrees on change in the last couple of months. John McCain has almost morphed into a Democrat to try and win this election. He is willing to say and do anything for votes and that includes accepting the endorsement of the Teflon Vice President Dick Cheney? AKA Valdermort. Was it not Cheney that pretty much outed Valerie Plame, a covert undercover CIA agent? Didn’t Scooter Libby go down in flames and to jail over this issue to protect Vice President Cheney? It is worth mentioning that Dick Cheney was the CEO of Halliburton, Brown and Root aka HBR that received to many to count no bid contracts to service our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then they padded the bills, screwed the troops over, packed up shop and moved their headquarters to Dubai from Houston Texas! Is that what Dick Cheney’s endorsement of John McCain means? This candidate will screw over anyone and everyone to get what they want done. And if they have to do it by busting the Constitution with signing statements then so let it be written and so let it be done. You have to love the movie The Ten Commandments. Yule Brenner was great in the role of extreme dictator and Pharaoh over the lost tribes of Israel. Omnipotent and untouchable till he pissed off the one true God. George Bush isn’t Pharaoh and Dick Cheney isn’t even close, but they think that they are and that is what pisses most independent and moderate voters off.

John McCain would be a fool to accept this endorsement or even brag about it. Just the simple fact that Cheney is backing him is not something he wants to put on his political resume. Matter of fact, it is probably the last nails in the coffin to the McCain campaign for President.

In my own political thoughts, John McCain is desperate and grabbing at anything that might just keep some red states red and grabbing the coattails of Dick Cheney is like a drowning man being thrown a cinder block as a life preserver.
