John McCain - He's Mad About Business

And that's not a good thing:

"I'm getting a bit tired of Senator McCain's anti-business shtick. The line about serving 'for patriotism, not for profit' is pathetic. America spends more on its military than the next 35-40 biggest military spenders on the planet combined: Where does he think the money for that comes from? . . . If greed is to be punishable, why doesn't he start with a pilot program applied to, say, the United States Senate and report back to us in five years how that's going?"


GOOD POINT BY ROMNEY about how McCain shouldn't "demean" people who start businesses. McCain has been doing that a lot, acting as if meeting a payroll is somehow less honorable than working for the government.

This makes me extremely uncomfortable with McCain, although I find McCain-Feingold an even stronger reason to be concerned about his presidency. He's not only mad about business, he's mad about your ability to talk about him 60-days before an election. Somehow, I just don't think I could trust a guy who doesn't believe in the First Amendment right to free speech to swear to uphold the Constitution.
