John Bolton's proven anger management issues make McWarSameBush's look minor. The only way he gets to Sec of State is by not needing Senate confirmation, an apparent goal of a third Bush administration.

John R. Bolton
Former U.S. ambassador to U.N. (Nomination to U.N. rejected by Senate, but George W. Bush put him in place on a recess appointment. Name floated for possible secretary of state for McCain. PNAC director.

A McCain administration would be likely to:
Invest incredible amounts of money in sustaining multiple, simultaneous wars overseas at the expense of neglecting pressing concerns at home, including the economy, health care, the environment and education.
Stockpile nuclear weapons, while seeking to prohibit its adversaries from having them.
Attempt to shield the U.S. with a multilayered missile defense system based on land, at sea, in the air and in space, while demanding that nations that are not its allies become sitting ducks.
Strive to develop more potent chemical and biological weapons-not to mention the genotype-specific variety, while at the same time claiming to be fighting a "war on terror."
Legalize "Total Information Awareness"-going through all Americans' phone calls, e-mail messages and other personal records without needing probable cause.
Take control of the Internet, globally using it as an offensive political weapon-while claiming to be spreading democracy throughout the world.
Dispense with checks and balances in favor of the "unitary executive authority" of the president.
Alienate nations that refuse to join our war coalitions.
Deny that there is (or can be) a United Nations.
A McCain administration would rule by fear, perceive right in terms of military might and subscribe to the idea of "do as I say and not as I do." As a consequence, instead of rebuilding the image of America as a model of justice and civility, it would further sully respect for this nation throughout the world.
I find the list of what a McWarSameBush's administration would do just a repeat of the War Chimp's. Their plan to take over the internet had a recent setback when the attempt to provide free wireless access for the whole country collapsed. Too many ISP's objected to losing their major source of profit.
McWarSameBush has been an active participant in PNAC from the beginning. This alone is sufficient reason to reject grandpa.
