John McCain Hates Me

by Michael Reagan - February 1st, 2008 -

As I watched McCain and Gov. Romney go at it during the debate at the Reagan Library, I was struck by the huge gap that separates McCain — whose contempt for his fellow humans is patently obvious — and my dad, Ronald Reagan, who had nothing but the deepest affection and respect for the American people.

The feeling is mutual between McCain and me. I don’t like the way he treats people. You get the impression that he thinks everybody is beneath him. He seems to be saying, “I was a war hero, and you had damn well better treat me as your superior.”

He has contempt for conservatives who he thinks can be duped into thinking he’s one of them, despite such blatantly anti-conservative actions as his support for amnesty for illegal immigrants, his opposition to the Bush tax cuts which got the economy rolling again, and his campaign finance bill which skewed the political process and attacked free speech.

I am appalled by his contempt for the intelligence of his listeners when he flat-out lies and expects them to believe what he says even when the truth is staring them in the face.

McCain is looking more and more like our nominee. Whatever happens on the Democrat side, he is head and shoulders above any of them on the key issue of our time. The war against Islamic extremism, or Islamo-fascisism if you will, has only one other Republican in whom I trusted his position. That man, Rudy Giuliani, has dropped out and thrown his support to McCain. I can understand this choice. The war is the most important issue. I just wish McCain was not so arrogant and self righteous. That does scare me, but not near as much as the all fluff campaign of Obama or the deceit of Hillary. Maybe McCain will rise to the job.

This is going to be a really interesting year.
