John McCain, whose campaign from the beginning has had no real sense of direction, is not tied closely to the key advisor for President Bush. In fact, this advisor, Karl Rove, has now had to come out of the closet in an attempt to breathe life into the campaign. Rove has been working actively for the GOP standard bearer. It’s most interesting that Rove has been working hard in an effort to help McCain dodge the Bush record. Thus far those attempts have been unsuccessful and have fallen on deaf ears. One area where McCain is trying hard to avoid the taint of the Bush mantel involves health care. We have seen health care costs go out of sight during the Bush Administration and there are now 47 million Americans with no health insurance – a very bad combination – and there are no prospects for any relief during the remaining months of the Bush presidency.
There is a definite need for universal access to health care in this country, and that is an important issue in the campaign. The following, which comes from remarks made by the President on the subject, pretty well sums up the Bush plan and his approach to making health care available to all citizens:
I mean, people have access to health care in America. After all, you just go to an emergency room.

That tells us how this administration feels about a most serious problem facing all American citizens. The Bush-Cheney–Rove mentality is sort of like that of a certain French Queen from years past who also had no real feelings for the needs of ordinary folks. She told her subjects – who were also having to deal with a sinking economy, with lots of them literally begging for bread – that they could “eat cake.” While the President hasn’t made that offer so far, he has come pretty close.
