He is now aware that Sarah Palin is a liability. He’s in over his head with the economic crisis. According to the tarot he has checked out, and is deeply afraid of losing. With the tower at the root of his problem it looks like something disastrous really rattled him, we know about the economic crisis but he’s not being entirely upfront as he has the seven of swords reversed in his place of advantage, meaning he’s lying about something. It looks like a combination of things are happening. He’s trying to better position himself politically and thinks this will change the tide of his down turn, but the public is losing confidence in him. I really think the tower card in his case was also news that he is sick. I wrote an earlier post about how his health did not look good according to his astrological chart.
A part of me wonders if he realizes he might not make it long into his presidency and is freaking out because he realizes he’s put the country in a precarious position by nominating Sarah Palin — a woman he barely knew and as he’s getting to know her, he’s lost confidence and doesn’t believe she could take over. Plus his legacy would be: that of the guy who died in office after impulsively selecting a running mate, who would be legendary in how terrible she governed.
Maybe for McCain just being the Republican candidate is enough. I’m beginning to wonder if his subconscious is at war with his conscious mind — a part of him doesn’t really want the job, but just the glory. Perhaps this is why he is being so erratic and impulsive. He’s operating more like a guy in a war, jumping into a fox hole for cover in a crisis, than like a leader.
In an earlier post I looked at McCain’s chart in relationship to the economic crisis, and the economy in general. It looked like cyanide to our economy which we really don’t need right now. So far it looks like his visit to Washington actually set back plans for a bail out. There was bipartisan agreement and they were working out details when McCain showed up. Harry Reed suggested he babbled incoherently during the last few minutes of the meeting and no one understood what he was talking about.
There are so many missteps in the McCain campaign what Chris Mathews calls “razzle dazzle,” do something crazy to take the heat off when something negative comes up about McCain or Palin. But I think it’s more insane than that. I really don’t think he can handle the stress and is really not cut out to be a leader. He freaks out under pressure and acts irrationally which is a very dangerous quality in a president. I wonder if “Maverick,” isn’t polite code for crazy like in the old days when they called crazy millionaires eccentric.
I really think the whole issue with why he doesn’t want to attend the debate is many fold, but here are some of the key points.
1) He doesn’t want to answer questions about the economy. He doesn’t fully get what’s going on and knows it. He hasn’t had time to cram for that which was supposed to be a later debate, but with it being so prevalent in the press, it will get brought up.
2) It’s all about him. He’s acting as if he’s already won the election — he’s narcissitic and is holding the US hostage while he can, trying to gain as much attention as he can while he can.
3) He’s afraid Obama will run verbal circles around him and he’ll come off looking like a doddering idiot.
4) A part of him is self-destructive because he knows he’s really not capable of becoming president and is throwing a monkey wrench in his campaign like he did by nominating Sarah Palin without vetting her.
5) He’s having a fight or flight reaction and can’t control himself emotionally.
