Today Charles Krauthammer endorses McCain. With good arguments against the counter.
McCain the “erratic” is a cheap Obama talking point. The 40-year record testifies to McCain the stalwart.
Nor will I countenance the “dirty campaign” pretense. The double standard here is stunning. Obama ran a scurrilous Spanish-language ad falsely associating McCain with anti-Hispanic slurs. Another ad falsely claimed that McCain supports “cutting Social Security benefits in half.” And for months Democrats insisted that McCain sought 100 years of war in Iraq.
Today the NYTimes endorses Obama (of which I’ve only read one page so far) with this idiotic reason:
As tough as the times are, the selection of a new president is easy. After nearly two years of a grueling and ugly campaign, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois has proved that he is the right choice to be the 44th president of the United States.
Mr. Obama has met challenge after challenge, growing as a leader and putting real flesh on his early promises of hope and change. He has shown a cool head and sound judgment. We believe he has the will and the ability to forge the broad political consensus that is essential to finding solutions to this nation’s problems.
Read that again because I know you skipped it. Yes, they are endorsing him BECAUSE HE MET THE CHALLENGES OF A 2 YEAR CAMPAIGN.
Yep. I’ll read the details later, but seriously that is their summation.
