John McCain kicked off a campaign swing in two Western states Friday with a new warning that electing Barack Obama could create unchecked Democratic control in Washington.
Republican incumbents and challengers are facing stiff battles in numerous congressional races, including in Colorado. Democrats expect to pick up seats in both the House and Senate and may reach a veto-proof majority of 60 in the Senate.
“The answer to a slowing economy is not higher taxes, but that is exactly what is going to happen when the Democrats have total control of Washington,” McCain told about 3,000 supporters in Denver’s National Western Arena. “We’ve already seen a preview of their plans,” added the four-term Arizona senator. “It’s pretty simple and pretty familiar: tax and spend.”
Is that seriously the only thing this guy has left? “My party sucks and has fucked up everything so badly that we’re being voted out of office at every turn. My friends, we’re going to get our asses handed to us all across America. So the last thing you want to do is vote for the presidential nominee of a political party you clearly favor.”
You go with that, McCain. And remember, as you do, that up to this point voters have seen through the vast majority of your bullshit in droves. Things aren’t looking good; you keep on reminding people that you don’t really have as single argument about why you would actually make a better president.
