This can be a deciding factor in a close election, and it looks as if the election will be a very close horse race.
Most voters know that Joe Lieberman and Tom Ridge are pro-aborts, but they might not know about Florida's Gov. Charlie Crist. He is sneaky, calls himself pro-life, but is not.
Awhile back the Florida House approved a bill to give women the option to see an ultrasound before having an abortion.
I heard Laura Ingraham say that Gov. Charlie Crist did not support this in the past, but he might support it now, because he wants to be the VP running mate.
So how can we trust Gov. Crist?
Plus, Gov. Charlie Crist called Judge Greer, who sentenced Terri Schiavo to death, a great hero.
‘”I am pro-choice, but not pro-abortion,” Crist wrote in a 1998 Times questionnaire. “I believe that a woman has the right to choose, but would prefer only after careful consideration and consultation with her family, her physician, and her clergy; not her government.”
Today Crist calls himself “pro-life,” but when pressed, he doesn’t sound substantively different than he did during his 1998 U.S. Senate campaign. “What we need to do is encourage a culture that respects life, as opposed to overturning (Roe vs. Wade),” he said this week.”
I won’t vote for mccain if he chooses Hunter for VP even tho Hunter is my choice for presidential candidate. I would then question Hunter’s judgement on accepting the offer
Thanks for your thoughts, but I would even donate to McCain’s campaign if he picked Duncan Hunter, and it would be the first time I ever contributed to a “moderate.”
Of course Governor Crist is pro-life! Who has fewer abortions than the gays?
I don’t like Gov. Crist’s politics, but that might just have been a rumor. He just got married, and was married before.
Don't throw away your vote.
The best way to reduce abortion is for the president to pick prolife judges to overturn Roe, so it goes to the states. Not all states are antilife, so many babies will be saved.
But how can I trust McCain to pick prolife judges, if he picks an antilife running mate?
Please tell Senator McCain that you don’t want him to pick a pro-abortion VP running mate like Charlie Crist, Tom Ridge, Joe Lieberman, et al.
Here’s some contact info.:
I’d rather he pick another rino, they can both fail together. Need to pound this into people’s heads ENOUGH WITH THESE FUGGING RINOS vote them out! hell I got no say in this election, only my congressman is up for re-election and the GOP didn’t bother to field a candidate. last 5 elections I voted for the conservative and they didn’t win
Baptists are praying for Obama to become prolife.
GOD is not pleased with killing his children.
McCain is as seriously considering a pro abort candidate for VP as he was considering being Kerry’s running mate in 2004. He is just having fun tweaking the Christian Right.
Leave the drama to Obama. Let McCain pick his running mate first. Sheesh!
Stay home. I’ll sign someone up to replace you. Politics is no place for whiny babies.
“Dr.” Savage? What a maroon...
“He is just having fun tweaking ..”
Or he might be testing the waters to see our reaction.
“Let McCain pick his running mate first.”
No, then it will be TOO LATE.
Here’s a dream ticket: McCain/pro-abort 2008!
But it is a dream ticket for OBAMA!
We should all pray that all of the candidates become pro-life.
He is a pretty good Gov, but not too conservative.
He is off on offshore oil drilling.
And, no secret here in Florida, He's GAY!
“No, then it will be TOO LATE.”
Then by all means wring your hands right off your wrists.
It made me nervous when I heard the Rasmussen guy say on Hannity’s show that McCain would pick Charlie Crist or Mitt Romney. Of course, he doesn’t know for sure, but I’d say it shows who’s on McCain’s short list.
Sad that you’re not a fighter.
Mark Levin is a fighter, though. Anybody hear his radio show today?
If you didn’t, at least you can read this, but the show was even better:
“We need a candidate with a coherent and comprehensive view of the world, and that includes McCains vice presidential candidate. Why doesnt he care about what the conservatives want? If we dont PRESSURE (emphasis mine) him, he will do whatever and choose whomever he wants.”
Please see my post #10. Perhaps Senator McCain needs a FReeping. Together we can make a difference.
LOL!!! It’s tragic.
What inaction. I will write in Duncan Hunter’s name if McCain picks a pro-abort, and support PRO-LIFE, CONSERVATIVE congresspersons and senators.
I used to talk to K7UGA and never understood that. McCain isn’t changing. He has my full support. God Bless. :^)
OK, folks, I covered Charlie Crist, now let me introduce to you Tom Ridge, and how John McCain is strongly considering him:
GOP VP Prospect Supported Nuclear Freeze, Opposed SDI
Friday, August 15, 2008
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge (AP Photo)
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, told The Weekly Standard on Wednesday that former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge should not be ruled out as the Republican vice presidential nominee because he favors legalized abortion.
Ridge, who served twelve years in the U.S. House of Representatives before being elected governor of Pennsylvania in 1994, also supported a nuclear freeze as a House member, opposed aid to the Nicaraguan contras and said President Reagans Strategic Defense Initiative left us with a serious defense problem.’
I have enough to die for....
I won’t vote for him either if he pulls that nonsense. He may think that will make him more palatable to independents, and it may well do so. But, he will have handed the election to Obama.
McCain better snap into compliance. He was so desirous of “his turn” and now he has it. He has but a few positions on issues that differ from Obama enough for make a difference.
He can ill afford to lose one of those positions. Electing Ridge, Crist or even Romney would do just that. McCain doesn’t strike me as particularly smart but he does have experience and is exponentially better than Obama. But then, Obama has rubbed elbows with racists, radicals and commies for nearly all of his life. He is a Marxist who would be dangerous for our country so that isn’t saying a great deal about McCain. I am resigned that whatever choice McCain makes for VP, is likely going to be a poor one.
About as good as praying that Mccain becomes a conservative.
So, in other words, you’ll be helping their people by your inaction.
Hunter already has endorsed McCain.
It could garner a fight but now it doesn’t. Stay home or vote. That’s it.
As our country becomes flooded with illegal immigrants and liberalism and socialism grows and grows, you will likely never vote again if you hold out for a Conservative.
A little of something, is better than nothing at all. I don’t see 4-8 years of socialism guaranteeing a Reagan to follow.
It's amazing they will just roll over and say Well he is the candidate DEAL with it, quit whining. You know what I DIDNT have a say in the primaries, mccain was decided before I voted! Why can't the primaries be held the SAME FREAKING DAY nation wide, I know, because rudy mcromney didn't want to compete against 8 candidates. sure the proles might have had a tough time deciding between 8 candidates and Mccain still might have won I wouldn't complain too much because I would've voted for Hunter.
well we may find out no matter how the election turns out. mccain will destroy the country just not as fast as obama. Mccain would have us in the pot and slightly turn the water up. Obama will flat out boil the water, I think that might move people to action, then again who knows.
“I wont vote for him either if he pulls that nonsense. He may think that will make him more palatable to independents,..”
I laugh when I hear a caller call Mark Levin’s show, and say they are an “independent.” So Mark says, “So you’re a liberal.” So true, imo.
“Hunter already has endorsed McCain.”
I know, but it was about his last choice. First Hunter endorsed Huckabee.
“It’s amazing they will just roll over and say Well he is the candidate DEAL with it, quit whining.”
And to say this BEFORE McCain even picked a VP is just plain giving up on conservatism ALTOGETHER.
I know that McCain craves liberal voters far more than he does conservatives, but I really doubt he would go so far as to pick Edwards' mistress as his VP. Although, we ARE talking about McCain. :)
you think he will listen to his vp? I am not holding on to the hope that he croaks in office, he is pretty stubborn he will hold on till the end, heck I think he can do 8 years.
Darn! Dropped the soap ag-ai-ain!....
Welcome to the club...
Only if you and other adament prolifers allow it to be by refusing to vote for McCain a longtime committed prolife supporter. I really fail to see the logic in any of this. Not voting for a commited prolifer at the top of the ticket thus allowing a committted babykiller at any cost to become President with a Congress controlled by babykillers at any cost. Yes I indeed fail to see the logic of any of this debate.
If McCain is even thinking of picking a pro-abortion VP (and don’t give me the “personally opposed but...” song and dance), he’s not pro-life and there is really little difference between him and Obama in terms of their programs.
McCain is very liberal on everything, and the only difference in the long run is that Obama is a nut while McCain is just a liberal. I’m not sure that the country could survive a leftwing black-power zealot with a messiah complex and the nutty people he’d bring into power with him (ranging from Al Sharpton to Louie Farrakhan and beyond). Perhaps that will make conservatives vote for McCain.
But the press and Obama’s campaign are trying hard to put a different face on Barry, so many conservatives, looking at Obama and the new, improved, pro-abortion McCain, will see little difference and will probably simply not vote at all. I don’t know why McCain is so determined to throw away the conservative vote.
This notion that an Obama presidency will usher in a new Reagan is nothing more than a pipedream, and I do not place my future on pipedreams. Besides does another Reagan even exist? I haven't seen him.
Obama and Reagan have absolutely nothing in common. But the fact that Obama is being presented this way proves exactly what I said: that his image is being “massaged” by the press and his campaign to present something entirely different from what he really is. Amazingly enough, even some people who should know better seem to be falling for it.
Given that, even leaving aside any issues of principle or belief, I don’t understand why McCain seems to be throwing away a genuine advantage. Of course, this may all be rumors on the part of the press designed to undermine McCain’s pro-life supporters and make them stay home.
