McCain another Bush?

Indiana residents must produce a photo ID to vote, says a state law recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. As a result, several nuns in their 80s and 90s recently were denied ballots because they didn’t have photo IDs.

In the meantime, while campaigning in North Carolina, Sen. John McCain was criticizing Sen. Barack Obama for voting against the confirmation of Chief Justice John Roberts.

So, according to McCain, Obama was wrong in voting against a Supreme Court nominee who, after he eventually was confirmed, voted to uphold Indian’s law requiring a photo ID to vote.

It’s just another example of where eight years of president Bush has led this country…preventing elderly nuns from exercising their right to vote.

If McCain agrees with Roberts and his ruling on the Indiana law, it appears a vote for McCain on Nov. 4 essentially cold be a vote for a third term for Bush.
