Delusions of Grandeur: Does McCain Think He Won Vietnam?

Like so many of you, I have long thought that electing McCain is a third Bush term. His differences in policy really are minimal and his temperament is equally arrogant and angry. What I didn't realize until recently is that he's equally delusional. That's the Bush trifecta.

Remember this mantra?

1998:
"I know how to lead. I have been telling my fellow-Texans that I have a vision for a better tomorrow for our state. You can't lead unless you know where you want to lead. I'm a uniter, not a divider.

2004:
"I've shown the American people I know how to lead," said Bush.

Here's 2008:
"What makes you more qualified than Mitt Romney, a successful CEO and businessman, to manage our economy?" Senator McCain offered a simple answer: "Because I know how to lead."
