Bush gives McCain the kiss of death
Bush says McCain will be just like him
In a sure death blow to John McCain's presidential campaign, President Bush said Sunday that McCain would be just like him if elected president.
President Bush can't stand John McCain and his choreographed campaign, along with Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, to smear McCain is underway.
In an interview with the Republican sponsored FOX "News", the only network to which Bush would dare subject himself, Bush said McCain is "very strong" on national defense, "tough fiscally,' wants to make Bush's tax cuts permanent, and opposes abortion rights. "His principles are sound and solid as far as I'm concerned," the president said.
"I think that if John is the nominee, he has got some convincing to do to convince people that he is a solid conservative and I'll be glad to help him if he is the nominee."
McCain must be thrilled to hear Bush's latest "endorsement."

Bush Campaign Used Code Words to Question McCain's Temper
"A smear campaign of the ugliest sort is now coursing through the contest for the presidency in 2000. Using the code word "temper," a group of Senate Republicans, and at least some outriders of the George W. Bush campaign, are spreading the word that John McCain is unstable. The subtext, also suggested in this whispering campaign, is that he returned from 5 1/2 years as a POW in North Vietnam with a loose screw. And it is bruited about that he shouldn't be entrusted with nuclear weapons."
