Wes Clark: McCain As Dangerous As Bush

“If you don’t think John McCain is just as dangerous in the White House as George W. Bush, think again.”

That’s how retired four-star General Wesley Clark begins a fundraising e-mail sent on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Clark, who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2004 race, writes in his e-mail:

“McCain will not reverse the foreign policy mistakes of George Bush. He is content to leave us in Iraq, saying it’d be ‘fine by me’ if we were in Iraq for another 100 years. He is rash on using military force with Iran. He overplays the military card and doesn’t seem to appreciate that the real strength of the nation lies in our economy and in our values.”

In seeking contributions to the DSCC for this year’s Senate campaign, Clark says: “We have to be sure we have a Congress that will support a Democratic president but also one that, in the event of a John McCain presidency, has enough horsepower to ensure he can’t continue the policies of George W. Bush.

“We can’t just triumph over John McCain in the race for the White House. We must defeat every Republican senator who supports Bush and McCain and believes in continuing a war that 64 percent of the American people are vehemently against.”

Clark accuses McCain and fellow Republicans of turning the threat of terrorism into “a rallying cry for military adventurism.”

He concludes: “John McCain and any Republican senator who supports his presidential candidacy are offering more of the same. And they have got to go.”
