John McCain vs John McCain

Remember way back in 2000 when John McCain was actually a respected war veteran and senator? Remember the "Straight Talk Express"? Remember the support he had from the left? Do you remember the McCain as Kerry's Vice President talk?

A lot has changed in the past 10 years, and yes, that does include John McCain's stance on post policy issues. I have said in the past that there is absolutely nothing wrong with a politician changing his position on a given subject as more information becomes available. I think there are a lot of American politicians who could sure use the trait. I thought that in 2004 and I still believe that today. What does bother me though is when a politician changes their position on EVERYTHING. John McCain has become that politician. What makes his actions even worse is that he has done it repeatedly for personal benefit. We all know he was treated horribly in the 2000 GOP Presidential primaries but just 8 years later he went to embrace the same people in the hopes of becoming President.

I saw two great clips related to McCain this week so I will share it with you.

The first one is from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Monday.

This second one is from this past Monday on The Rachel Maddow Show.

Rachel Maddow's blog also points out a similar report Keith Olbermann did during the 2008 election cycle.
