5.0 out of 5 stars The two McCains, May 12, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Real McCain: Why Conservatives Don't Trust Him and Why Independents Shouldn't (Paperback)
This book is a carefully and thoroughly sourced revelation that makes clear that John McCain has "worked" the media into portraying him as a "straight-talker", "maverick" and "independent" when, in fact, he is anything but.

Schecter presents a picture of the McCain of public posturing and pronouncements and then sharply contrasts that with his voting record. As to the former, McCain's stand against Bush's tax cuts and the use of torture, are belied by his votes in favor of both. It is the media that have failed so miserably by reporting the former, but ignoring the latter.

The author also documents one anecdote after another of McCain's temper which should raise serious questions about the senator's self-control, and ultimately, fitness to serve as president.

This book is a MUST read for anyone who remains "undecided" or who THINKS they know John McCain.
