McCain aide spills the beans: Protect Junior!

"Don't worry, sir. I got your back."
John McCain has spent a lot of time and effort trying to distance himself from President Junior, and even the most stalwart Republican troglodyte can hardly blame him. Junior has the all the appeal of a weeping canker sore and the gravitas of a clown-suited monkey at a black-tie dinner.

But, behind the scenes, apparently, a deal has been cut. If McCain is elected, he will protect Junior.

In an interview with the German publication Der Spiegel, McCain aide Robert Kagan revealed the planned agenda for a McCain administration: Extend the Bush cover-up of the lies used to initiate the invasion of Iraq. As reported by ThinkProgress:
SPIEGEL: Isn’t it true that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld took advantage of the outrage over the 9/11 terrorist attacks to strike Iraq? Is it even possible anymore to deny that the war was based on manipulation, exaggeration and flat-out lies? […]
KAGAN: In retrospect, we have to admit that Washington could have waited a while longer. That’s a different question. But I think it’s about time we moved beyond this silly conversation and these absurd conspiracy theories.
Conspiracy theories? There are 935 documented lies, uttered by Big Dick, Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, Junior and others related to the Iraq war, both pre- and post-invasion. The administration, with its lapdog Attorney General, Michael Mukasey, has stone-walled all inquiries into the matter.

Kagan reveals the McCain agenda
Well, Kagan revealed that a McCain administration would continue the stone-walling. McCain may whine that he's not George W. Bush, but he knows which side his bread is buttered on, as the saying goes. McCain is a Republican to the bone. If and when the public ever gets a real look at the manipulation and lies that the Bush administration used to sell their filthy war, it could very well mean the death of the Republican party. McCain won't have that. As Kagan indicates, McCain will even protect a man whom he despises, Junior Bush, who slandered McCain's wife and child in the 2000 South Carolina Republican primary, rather than let his party be destroyed.

I've got news for Mr. Kagan, and for John McCain: I'm not willing to just "move on." Hundreds of thousands of people have died or been maimed or driven to despair by this war. I voted for Barack Obama for many reasons, but chief among them was the possibility that an Obama administration might someday bring these filthy liars to justice.

The Constitution of the United States either means something, or it doesn't. Junior Bush, with his flagrant disrespect for that cherished document has shown how he feels about it. Apparently, the McCain campaign agrees with him.

"Country First," John? Don't make me wretch!

Hopefully after this election the Republican Party will (to paraphrase Grover Norquist)"small enough to drown in the bathtub."

I think it will be almost expected that McCain will protect Bush.

I am also not convinced that Obama will want to go after Bush too much.

It would set up a bad precedent.

But, I am with you and the constitution ... Bush must be brought to book!

Peace Dade,

Dobson sure seems that Obama will look into the issue. The only point I liked in his Sci-Fi 2012 letter was the section on how Obama was sending everyone related with the Iraq war to jail! Go JUSTICE! ^_^
