What if McCain had won the election?

March 31, 2010

For those outside of the Arizona realm, former presidential candidate John McCain (AZ republican senator) recently started his campaign for re-election.  His top dog support for this campaign? Miss Sarah Palin.

John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, posted this Daily Beast blog last weekend and reminisced on her father’s previous bid for president. Like many commenters on the blog, I got to wondering what would have been different had McCain won the election.

Through Twitter and my Facebook, I got a few responses to the question of “What would be different if McCain had been elected president?

“If McCain had won the election, instead of a health care bill we’d simply just have another conflict on our hands.” -@Chordstricken

“America wouldn’t have been too much different with McCain. Same shit only drawn out a little longer. Douche/turd?” -@NickSearleWorld

“Health care would not have been passed, things probably would be the same with the war though. The last I heard more troops were being sent overseas, actually, but I don’t know about that other stuff. However, would the lives of Americans have been improved? Have the lives of Americans been improved by the Obama administration? Not so far. I really hope that they do start improving, though.” -FB User Catie

“All entire Worlds oil supply would be completely depleted instead of just scarce as to dinosaurs never existing and obv global warming would no longer be a problem (not because of the oil thing, but because its not real).” –FB User Eric

What do you think, readers? How would our lives, and America be different had McCain won the election?

    Well, if the HMO Bailout Bill wouldn’t have passed then people would not have been legally obliged to buy a product, and fined if they couldn’t afford it. McCain 1.

    Another conflict? As opposed to the ONLY 2 with pakistan closing in to become a third? I don’t know about you, but being a veteran myself, I trust people who have seen combat to manage wars better than those who only heard of them.

    I believe McCain may have been better at keeping promises than Obama has been. He may not have put a tax cheat in charge of banks and throw a ton of money at them asking for nothing in return. Incidentally McCain just proposed a few weeks ago an act that would be the reinstatement of Glass Seagall. Mc Cain 2

    And no, I’m not a Repuglican.

    If McCain had won, our suicide rate would’ve skyrocketed. Why? Because we’d all have to listen to Sarah Palin even more than we do now. Other than that, things would probably be pretty much the same.

    You ever wondered whether the myth of Sarah Palin’s stupidity was not just a fabrication, similar to that of Obama’s intelligence?

    Also, it’s worth mentionign that McCain is a long time anti corporatist. There is a chance things may have ended up better.
    Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it.
