Despite all of the efforts to cut ties with the Bush Administration, John McCain, realizing that he might be losing the election before it officially gets started, opened his doors to disciples of Karl Rove from the 2004 campaign and others from the Bush White House. The candidate who started out talking about high-minded, civil debate has now wholeheartedly adopted Rove’s brand of politics which is evil to the core. Anybody who has observed Rove’s work in prior campaigns recognizes that the current attacks on Senator Obama are clearly the work of Rove and his disciples.
Since they killed his own 2000 presidential bid, of all people McCain should certainly recognize the Rove tactics and his ugly brand of politics. Nevertheless, McCain has put day-to-day management of his campaign in the hands of one Rove acolyte and awarded top positions to two others. The résumés of the new team’s members included stints in the Bush White House and in his 2004 re-election campaign, one of the most negative and divisive in recent memory.
It is hard to imagine a worse role model than the one McCain has adopted. It’s significant that President Bush isn’t in great demand by any other Republican candidates. The voters don’t want an extension of President Bush’s two disastrous terms, but that’s exactly what the McCain new handlers are offering. When you combine the Rove disciples and all of the special interest lobbyists who are still helping to run the McCain campaign, we should have anticipated that the Arizona Senator would turn up the level of his personal attacks on Senator Obama. Of course, the worst attacks have come and continue by way of the Internet.
