It boggles me; really, why some continue to perceive John McCain as a viable choice to run this country. Aside from being a ripe 71 years old who is not changing anytime soon, the man has as much ability to tick off the far-left as Teddy Kennedy.
He teamed up with Teddy Kennedy to create a Bill that would give amnesty to 20 million illegal aliens. He seemed to not be too far apart from Kennedy’s positions that day.
He teamed up with Russ Feingold to create a Bill that reformed campaign finance. Basically this rule wiped out anyone who was not a Hollywood star, a raging liberal, someone endorsed by Oprah, a Republican that liberals liked, or someone with instant name recognition like Hillary Clinton. His positions weren’t that far off from Feingold’s that day. (Come to think of it, perhaps we all know now why he supported Campaign Finance Reform in the first place!)
He teams up with congressional members of the far left to cry about dropping water down the noses of terrorists.
He teams up with members of the far left to denounce and demand that we shut down Guantanamo.
The NY Times loves him because he supports these crazy positions.
But one thing they love more is watching alleged Republicans call someone “far right” simply because we aren’t allowing the media to select our candidate for us.
McCain IS NOT G.O.P. No matter his outcome, we lose the White House anyway because our principles will not be going with him.
All of the above positions that McCain has sold us out on are NOT positions that are important to the “far right!” They are positions important to “Americans!”
Just get used to President Barack….
Much like McCain, he was funded by George Soros
Much like McCain, he opposes water-boarding
Much like McCain, he wants illegals to have amnesty
Much like McCain, he criticizes the war
Much like McCain, he wants to shut down Guantanamo
Much like McCain, he is loved by the NY Times
But unlike McCain, he was endorsed by Oprah.
That’s our future, people.
When Democrats don’t show as much fear of our Presidential candidate as we do with theirs – then we really may as not have a candidate to begin with. We really have four bad years ahead of us.
Amazingly though, the same voters who supported Ronald Reagan and his positions 25 years ago are now members of the “far right.”
A category I will gladly rest in if that’s what it takes.
The NY Times can make that claim and anybody else can.
I am a Republican and McCain is not my candidate.
