This afternoon I have finally written down two of my issues with presidential candidate John McCain. One is found here in this quote:
There are two polls today that show us basically tied, and I think we are in the right position. I like being the underdog. (article)
What in the world is that? He likes being an underdog? Would he like to be a winner? He ought to lose that “underdog” moniker and take the attitude and language of a winner, that is, if he really wants to win. And if a poll shows that you’re close to tied, it’s probably within the margin of error which means you very well might be ahead.
This leads into another issue. Does it seem to anyone else that he wants this nomination because he’s owed it? I get the idea that he thinks he’s going to ride into victory on the votes of those that feel it’s his turn. The Republicans already had a candidate like that back in the 1996 election – Bob Dole. He gave us four more years of Clinton. It appears to me that we have the recipe for another 1996 election, and this one will give us another 1976 President.
