What happens when a one-time maverick decides to run for President of the United States? For GOP presidential hopeful John McCain, the answer is obvious: The Maverick Must Die!
Let's take a look at the some of McCain's best Dr. Jeckyll/Mr. Hyde moments on the campaign trail:
On President Bush's Tax Cuts:
Old McCain: "I cannot in good conscience support a tax cut in which so many of the benefits go to the most fortunate among us at the expense of middle-class Americans who need tax relief," McCain said on being one of two Senate Republicans to vote "no" on Bush's tax cut bill in 2001.
New McCain: "I think it's very important that we make the Bush tax cuts permanent. I voted to make them permanent twice already," McCain said during a 2008 GOP debate in Florida.
On the War In Iraq:
Old McCain: “We will win this conflict. We will win it easily,” McCain told MSNBC in a 2003 interview.
New McCain: "I fully understood from the beginning that Iraq would be a very, very difficult undertaking. It's going to be long and hard and tough,” McCain said during interviews in 2006 and 2007.
