Objections to McCain
Objections to Obama
The only serious objections to Obama apply far more intensely to McCain:
- Overtly religious (Christian), and has been known to pander to a religious audience – but at least does not seem to be a literalist in his beliefs; McCain, though, is far more overtly religious, and has ties to a number of Christofascists, most notably John Hagee
- Voted for the FISA bill containing immunity for the telecomm companies (who illegally collaborated with George Bush in warrantless eavesdropping on Americans), despite having pledged to filibuster it – but McCain is far less likely to support the US Constitution over the Holy War on Terror.
For other objections which are easily refuted (or that make no sense but seem to be popular), see Barack Obama.
