John McCain has no message. He has no conviction except that he desperately wants to be President. He has no developed vision for America, or platform of his own, and that is why you see him floundering and flailing away, unsure of each step. As a result, he’s being buffeted by every wind that blows his way, or dancing to the strings of his right wing Republican fundie puppeteers.
He is easily swayed by the next or newest thought, woman, suggestion, pleasure, etc. Though he’d like all to believe he’s a maverick, he’s far from that. He’s a poor actor that has strut and fret his way on our stage of life, and soon we’ll hear no more from him. Won’t be a moment too soon.
He’s lived a long life, but in truth has not learned from his early days as a bully, a spoiled brat and an impulsive opportunist. This election more than any other has shone a bright spotlight on his character, built and carried forward from his youth.
He has no message because he has never truly had what a man his age is want to have at least once in his lifetime - a Eureka moment - he really has never got it.
