“I disagree with many of the president’s policies, but I believe he is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country’s cause,” Sen. John McCain (in photo), R-Ariz., wrote in a Washington Post commentary. “I reject accusations that his policies and beliefs make him unworthy to lead America or opposed to its founding ideals. And I reject accusations that Americans who vigorously oppose his policies are less intelligent, compassionate or just than those who support them.” Though some “rhetorical excesses” are inevitable, McCain said, “I do not think it is beyond our ability and virtue to refrain from substituting character assassination for spirited and respectful debate.”
