Now Longer a Maverick….

Obviously feeling threatened by the slough of Hillary supporters flocking to John McCain, suddenly CBS News is now reporting political columns on behalf of the ever-so fair and balanced The Nation magazine.

McCain-Feingold is sure coming back to haunt the dear Senator who had worked feverishly with Kennedy and others like Feingold to pave way to easy street for 12 million illegal aliens and make it difficult for the people to select a Presidential candidate.

Well, they got what they wanted.  John McCain representing Republicans, Hillary Clinton selling out her supporters and climbing on board with BHO, and two steps away from BHO running the country.

Still many blame Republicans and pundits for the sharp divide.  Rush didn’t cause this part, folks.  Neither did Ann.

The media did. 

And it’s so fascinating how quick they are to turn.  They turned on Hillary, they turned on Bill, and of course now it’s time to turn on McCain by merely pointing out everything Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh were saying about him – and of course stretching it.

We deserve this because of Republican “failures.”  But not Presidential or Congressional Republicans.  The voting base decides and we are the ones to blame.  And because we weren’t paying close enough attention to everything that was happening, we have failed our party to the max by accepting the candidate selected to represent us – the same one the media is finally turning on now.

CBS “News” Will the Real John McCain Please Stand Up?

  1. The RNC has a lot of rebuilding to do regardless of whether McCain wins or not in November. Unfortunately, the Dems will increase their majority in Congress and many Americans are fed up with the Republicans. There are also very sharp divisions within the GOP between soc-cons and fiscal/defense cons as was seen during the Huckabee mess. I hope they can do it well enough in time for the 2010 mid-terms.

  2. “Not Presidential failures”? You don’t think President Bush has anything to do with the massive unpopularity of the GOP right now? That’s why you have McCain as the nominee– if you go with a traditional republican, not one single swing voter votes for you, and you probably lose some of your traditional support.

    Bottom line: The GOP is down in the dirt right now and will probably lose the white house and congress to the democrats. McCain represents their best hope.

  3. Bottom line: we’ve already lost the Congress two years ago. Granted, it wasn’t by the numbers Democrats should have won judging by historical odds – topped with the fact that most of the votes were even too close to call for a while, I’d say that in a sixth year election, Republicans did magnificently.

    Bush defied historical odds in the first midterm when Republicans actually picked up seats.

    Over the issue of guns and crime in 1994, Republicans swept Congress with a 54 seat pick up.

    After 12 years of liberal haranguing and screaming by the left, you picked up 31 seats…

    That was your historic ground.

    Bush was bad at spending, he enraged his base with the Harriet Miers nomination, and his support of amnesty for 12 million illegals.

    These years for the Democrats – after two major Presidential losses and numerous losses in Congress – should be BLOWOUTS.

    But they’re not. Our candidates (both Dem and Rep) were selected by the media. Not by the voters.

    This is the worst list of Presidential candidates in history.

  4. Ann and Rush are very successful, yes. Especially compared to any liberal on MSNBC.

    I stated earlier that Republicans did not notice early on (including Ann and Rush) how much the major media (CBS, NBC, New York Times) loved McCain.

    But of course – as this post points out, that has changed.

    Most Americans are conservatives. They don’t want big government, want to pay for their own healthcare, and don’t need handouts.

    And it was so fun watching Democrats in the media- in an election year that should be a blowout for them – do the impossible and turn on the beloved Clintons!

    Hillary’s campaign is prime example of what I am talking about.

    Obama and McCain are horrible candidates, period.
