PJB: Why McCain Would be Worse Than Bush 
by Patrick J. Buchanan

In 2004, the voters of Arizona, by 56 percent to 44 
percent, enacted Proposition 200, requiring proof of 
citizenship before an individual may vote or receive 
state benefits. Forty-six percent of Hispanics voted 
for Prop. 200, giving the lie to those who say Hispanics 
support the illegal invasion of their country. 

Over 190,000 Arizonans petitioned to put Prop. 200 on the 
ballot. As it simply required proof of citizenship before 
receiving the benefits and privileges of citizenship, who 
could oppose it? Answer: the entire GOP congressional 
delegation, led by Sen. John McCain. 

This is the same John McCain who battled the border fence 
and colluded with Teddy Kennedy on the amnesty bill 
rejected by Congress last year after a national uproar. 

Bottom line: If the presidential race is between Hillary 
and Amnesty John, the border security battle is over and 
lost. As Laura Ingraham asks, "If Congress passes McCain-
Kennedy in 2009, would President McCain sign it?" 

For conservatives, the stakes could not be higher. 

For on the great controversies, McCain has sided as often 
with the Democrats and the Big Media that pay him court as 
with conservatives.

Where President Bush has been bravest, on taxes and judges, 
McCain has been his nemesis. Not only did McCain vote 
against the Bush tax cuts twice, he colluded to sell out 
the most conservative of the Bush nominees to the courts. 

In 1993, McCain voted to confirm ACLU liberal and pro-
abortion Ruth Bader Ginsburg. But when Bush set out to 
restore constitutionalism, McCain colluded with Democrats 
who wanted to retain power to kill Bush’s most conservative 

McCain helped form the Gang of 14, including seven 
Democrats, who agreed to block a GOP Senate from using the 
"nuclear option" – allowing a simple GOP majority to break 
a Democrat filibuster of judicial nominees – unless the 
seven Democrats approved. McCain thus conspired with 
liberals to put at risk the most courageous conservatives 
nominees of President Bush. 

With his record of voting for liberal justices Ginsburg and 
Stephen Breyer, and of colluding with Democrats in their 
campaign to kill the most conservative Bush nominees, what 
guarantee is there a President McCain will nominate and 
fight for the fifth jurist who would vote to overturn 
Roe v. Wade? 

In the battle over campaign finance reform, McCain colluded 
again. The McCain-Feingold law denies to gun folks and 
right-to-lifers their basic First Amendment right to name 
friends and foes in ads run before elections. 

As for the policies that have transparently failed Bush and 
the nation, McCain remains an obdurate advocate.

After America has run five straight record trade deficits 
that have denuded the nation of thousands of factories and 
3 million manufacturing jobs, McCain is still babbling on 
about Smoot-Hawley. 

"When you study history, every time we've adopted 
protectionism, we've paid a very heavy price," McCain told 
a Detroit paper after informing Michiganders their auto 
jobs are never coming back. 

But what history is John McCain talking about? 

Was the Tariff of 1816, which saved infant U.S. industries 
from the malicious dumping by British merchants after the 
War of 1812, a failure? Were Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, 
John Calhoun and Henry Clay fools to support President 
Madison's tariff? 

From Abraham Lincoln through Calvin Coolidge, the 
Republican Party – the Party of Protection – put 12 
presidents in the White House to two for the Democrats, 
and the United States became the mightiest industrial 
power in history, producing 42 percent of the world's 
manufactured goods. 

This is failure – while Bush free trade is a success? Tell 
it to Ohio. 

Even Hillary Clinton, whose husband enacted NAFTA with 
McCain's support, has begun to question the NAFTA paradigm. 
Not McCain.

Where Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon came to office 
determined to extricate the nation with honor from a war 
whose costs had begun to outweigh any benefit, McCain is 
talking about spending 50 or 100 years in Iraq. 

Where Bush, by moving NATO onto Russia’s doorstep, planting 
bases in Central Asia and intervening in the affairs of 
Russia's neighbors, has undone the work of Reagan in making 
Russia a friend, he sounds like George McGovern alongside 
the braying McCain, who can't wait to get into Vladimir 
Putin's face. 

Where Bush finally cleansed his administration of neocons, 
if not of their legacy, a McCain candidacy is the last, 
best hope of a neocon restoration and new military 
adventures in the Middle East. 

If Rudy Giuliani founders in Florida, neocons will be 
chanting, "Mac is back!" 

The three issues that ruined the Bush presidency are this 
misbegotten war in Iraq, the failure to secure America's 
borders from invasion and a mindless trade policy that 
has destroyed the dollar and left foreigners with $5 
trillion to buy up America at fire-sale prices. 

McCain remains an unthinking advocate of all three. 

But where Bush was at his best, on taxes and judges, McCain 
was collaborating with Hillary. The question conservatives 
may face if McCain is nominated is not whom should I vote 
for, but should I vote.
