What I found interesting was that he said that he had voted for Hillary in the primary. I replied that I did not understand how someone who voted for Hillary could possible vote for McCain. His answer was "experience". He thought Hillary had the experience to be president, but that Obama does not.
When I tried to point out that McCain and Hillary had very little, if anything, in common and did he really want 4 more years of what we have had for the past 8 years, he came back with:
- Since the Democrats have controlled the House and the Senate for the past 8 years, they are as much to blame as the republicans. (Yes, he really said that and would not believe me when I said that they have controlled the House and Senate for only the last 2 years and the Senate control is by only the slimmest of margins.)
- The Democrats and the republicans both had the same information on Iraq, so they are both equally responsible.
- Hillary should have gotten the nomination and that there was something funny going on with the Democrats. Obama stole the nomination from Hillary.
- Very stupid.
- A racist.
Based on some of the statements I have heard from the McCain camp, I think they are trying to exploit this hidden racist in our society.
