John McCain Gracious?

A gracious man would have said more than Please in an attempt to calm his supporters when they booed the mention of Senator Barack Obama's name during his concession speech. A gracious man would've stopped his speech and directly addressed the haters in his audience that night and at his previous campaign stops. A gracious man would have said that the type of derision they were demonstrating towards the next President of the United States will not be tolerated. A gracious man would've used words to that effect and the real Americans in his audience would've cheered loudest, drowning out the cries of negativity from the likes of him and her.

Instead, John McCain read his words as written - words that, in any other context, might be considered gracious. But, by not directly addressing the fundamental failures of a core section of his supporters, McCain displayed the same failure he referred to in his speech - and I quote - The failure is mine.

John McCain, you are no Barack Obama.

  1. Wow - very good points.
    But what do you expect from a man who picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate?
    Not a gracious - or smart - man.
