"Presidential ambition is a disease which can only be cured by embalming fluid."


McCain has apparently been cured of his Presidential ambition. (Or he sure looks like it)

Yesterday McCain attacked Obama, accusing Obama of wanting to be president not for patriotic reasons or for the good of the country, but because of blind, selfish ambition.

But what did John McCain write in his 2002 book? McCain wrote:
"I didn't decide to run for president to start a national crusade for the political reforms I believed in or to run a campaign as if it were some grand act of patriotism. In truth, I wanted to be president because it had become my ambition to be president. . . . In truth, I'd had the ambition for a long time.

McCain is a hypocrite, pure and simple!

Also, John McCain apologized on April 20, 2000 for lying about his true feelings about the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the South Carolina Statehouse when he campaigned in the state's Republican presidential primary, saying he had compromised his principles out of political self-interest.

Mr. McCain, who built his presidential quest on a reputation for candor and patriotism, said he had lied on the flag issue because he feared that if his true feelings had been known it would have ruined his chances to wrest the nomination from Gov. George W. Bush of Texas. McCain untruthfully said on the campaign trail that the divisive issues should be left to the state, just as Bush had said.

''I feared that if I answered honestly, I could not win the South Carolina primary,'' Mr. McCain said. ''So I chose to compromise my principles. I broke my promise to always tell the truth.''

McCain is a calculating, say anything-to-get-elected liar. McCain himself admitted it.
