The Madness Continues

Today, John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, goes to the White House to get the endorsement of George W. Bush.  The indispensable Steve Sailer has summed up the madness of neoconservative policy in one lapidary phrase:  Invade the World, Invite the World, In Hock to the World.  John McCain promises to be just as stubborn in pursuit of these insane policies as Bush has been:  he has professed indifference as to whether American troops remain in Iraq for 100 years and entertained a campaign audience by singing “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.”  He co-sponsored the amnesty bill in the Senate and has regularly denounced those opposed to mass immigration as “xenophobes” and “racists,” and he remains a free trade zealot, even in the face of massive trade deficits and a plunging dollar.  McCain appears to want to wage more wars we can’t afford, erase the border with Mexico, and preside over the continued deindustrialization of America.

George Bush’s failure as president has been so obvious that even his cheerleaders in the Beltway Right have put down their pom-poms.  There is no reason to believe that, if McCain is elected, he will be anything other than another failed president.  But the Beltway Right is beginning to pick up the pom-poms again, hoping for jobs in and goodies from a prospective McCain Administration.  Of course, there is no reason to expect anything better from the Democrats.  But no conservative should be at all sanguine about the Republican nominee and what he will do if elected.
