Skip to comments.George Will Loses His Head (bashes McCain)
Posted on 09/23/2008 11:06:06 AM PDT by rubeng
Under the pressure of the financial crisis, one presidential candidate is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too high. It is not Barack Obama.
Channeling his inner Queen of Hearts, John McCain furiously, and apparently without even looking around at facts, said Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, should be decapitated. This childish reflex provoked the Wall Street Journal to editorialize that "McCain untethered" -- disconnected from knowledge and principle -- had made a "false and deeply unfair" attack on Cox that was "unpresidential" and demonstrated that McCain "doesn't understand what's happening on Wall Street any better than Barack Obama does." . . .

What the heck is wrong with this guy? Sound like he’s now in the tank for Obama. I used to have respect for him.
Will’s criticism of McCain’s attack on Cox is not without justification from a conservative standpoint. However, Will’s own simplistic vitriol is beneath him and serves only to provide Obama’s side with talking points.
Will, was right McCain proves he is a loose cannon.
George Will comes from the “Dark Side” of conservatism. He lives in a world dominated by the drive by media and hears little from fly-over-country. His life is baseball and liberals. He can be safely ignored.
A lot of the conservative talking heads don’t like the fact that McCain is trying to reach out to middle class people, and calling it like it is. There is nothing wrong with “moralizing” when the limousine liberals who run the big financial houses knowingly took irresponsible risks, trusting in their golden parachute severance deals and their status as “too big to fail.”
A lot of conservatives hate middle Americans almost as much as the liberal Democrats do.
I lost respect for George Will a few years ago. I don’t know what happened to him, hanging around too much with Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts I guess.
I’ve been trying to read his article all morning. That jewish review site has been down.
Gotta go with George on this one, especially when McCain recommended Andrew Cuomo to take his place.
Blah balh blah blah. MCLIBERAL is the problem here. He’s not Conservative, will not get a MAJORITY of Conservative votes, and thus WILL LOSE. The GOP is dead if they start blaming the voter for THEIR MESS.
didn’t Cox introduced kind of short sells in 2007 that are now banned after market meltdown ?
You need to correct the title.
They all take their orders from the same Globalists.
So what George, are you going to do endorse Obama now?
George Will has a son with Down syndrome. Not that that by itself should make him vote for McCain/Palin, but why should he be in effect supporting the candidate who’s for letting unwanted babies die after birth?
The bar is set higher for McCain. All Obama has to do is make sure his fly is up every morning, and people say he’s “Presidential”. McCain can make one mistake, and it follows him around for a week.
It’s not fair, but there you go.
And, frankly, I am not married to Cox. Somebody ought to get the axe.
George Will has a point. McCain is doing what he always does, bash the Republican(Chris Cox) and praising the Democrat(Andrew Cuomo). McCain said he would appoint Cuomo tor replace Cox.
McAmnesty wants to replace Cox (long-time conservative) with Cuomo (long-time NY liberal) and we are supposed to trust him on nominating judges?
Dude can’t be trusted.
