The backlash against politicians at town halls is a bipartisan phenomenon. Both Republicans and Democrats have been feeling the heat from a very upset American public. This was shown very clearly at a recent town hall event for Senator John McCain, who opposed President Barack Obama in the 2008 elections. At this town hall, McCain was booed as he expressed that he “sincerely” trusts that Obama believes in the Constitution.
McCain should realize there is no upside to standing up for Obama. In fact, this was a huge strategic mistake during the 2008 election. During the early stages of his presidential campaign, McCain was reluctant to call out Obama for what he was: a Marxist. When he finally started doing this as the election was drawing to a close, it was too little, too late.
It’s no secret that Obama is waging a war against the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Why then does McCain feel compelled to stand up for Obama?
