The Chernobyl disaster occurred in the old Soviet Union, so perhaps John McCain may not care about Mother Russia much. Three Mile Island was right here in the U.S. and on some days upwind from his frequent location of Washington, D.C. However he showed his ignorance of nuclear safety and his arrogance for the American people for mocking Obama over the issue. McCain has grown increasingly nasty in his attacks on Barack Obama but this one truly affects us all.
Sen. John McCain ramped up his attacks against Democratic opponent Barack Obama on Saturday, criticizing the Illinois senator for saying that nuclear power needed to be done safely."Blah, blah blah," there you have it folks, John McCain's policy on nuclear safety in one word repeated thrice. With nothing left to his campaign including honor and dignity, the once imagined Maverick is long gone. The only thing that remains is a grumpy old man being led by campaign advisers such as Steve Schmidt and Rick Davis who command him to sling mud at will. The nuclear strategy has truly blown up in his face.
The Republican candidate referenced the final presidential debate Oct. 15, in which Obama qualified McCain's support of nuclear energy and offshore drilling with the need to protect the environment.
"You know, the other night in a debate I said his eloquence is admirable but pay attention to his words," McCain said. "We talked about offshore drilling and he said he would, quote, 'consider' offshore drilling. We talked about nuclear power. Well, it has to be safe, environment, blah blah blah."
