From Monday’s Countdown:
Nobody ever said it better than did Aaron Sorkin in his script for the movie The American President: “Whatever your particular problem is, friend, I promise you, Bob Rumson” — and for Bob Rumson, read John McCain — Bob Rumson is not the least bit interested in solving it. He is interested in two things and two things only: Making you afraid of it, and telling you who‘s to blame for it.”
Keith omitted the next line . . .
He is interested in two things and two things only: making you afraid of it and telling you who’s to blame for it. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you win elections.You gather a group of middle-aged, middle-class, middle-income voters who remember with longing an easier time, and you talk to them about family and American values and character.
And then your Hollywood-Left opponent call those folks bitter gun- and bible-toting xenophobes.
As for McCain as Bob Rumson, that is just ridiculous. McCain is either fighter pilot Bill Pullman in Indpendence Day or Vietnam War hero Harrison Ford in Air Force One, both way cooler than Michael Douglas, a history professor.
