How do you feel about John McCain’s VP choice? You know he chose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, which has raised many critical questions on McCain’s judgment in the media. Was it the right choice or not?
According to a post on the National, McCain’s choice “raises dangerous questions about his rash decision to pick a little-known rookie politician as his vice-presidential nominee.”
According to the Washington Post, McCain’s vetting team said that Palin was not subjected to a lengthy in-person background interview process yet, she was chosen by McCain as VP the day after. This choice reflects an impulsiveness that, as president, could tempt him to overreact in a crisis.
He himself has stated “I make them (decisions) as quickly as I can, quicker than the other fellow, if I can. Often my haste is a mistake, but I live with the consequences without complaint” (Daily Kos). The thing is if you make those hasty decisions as President, you won't suffer the consequences alone; you'll have millions of Americans to suffer with. Is that the kind of President we want?
During this entire race to the white house, McCain has been saying “can we trust Barack Obama who is so inexperienced?” We should be asking “can we trust McCain who makes hasty or erratic decisions?”
With so many questions about McCain’s judgment, could this hurt his campaign? Do you think he made the right choice to have chosen Palin as VP? If you were McCain, who would you choose as your VP?
