Thanks AB, EC, snugs & Good Morning to EveryOne!.Thanks again, EC for your kind words.

McCain - Exclusive? [as if he is the prize-get]. Now, this is McCain unfiltered in Iowa, just this week.

McCain was asked to define his priorities if elected. He did.

* would work more closely with our military allies. [sounding like Kerry & dems?]

* would close Guantanamo Bay. [terrorist-prisoners would be put in Hilton?]

* would make sure we don't torture prisoners. [is he saying that our sodiers torturing them now?]

* would speak every two weeks to the American people. [besides every week on MTP & Hardball].

Great! the above 4 are peoples' greatest priorities in McCain's mind. Russert would do a service if he ask McCain to confirm once again his Iowa priorities.

I wonder if Lamont is ticked off because Liebermann is on by himself on CBS.

I guess he has never heard of the Saturday radio addresses, or the press opportunities that surround the President several times a day.

More: McCain to AP: in Iowa:

Sen. John McCain said Tuesday there is "lingering resentment" among some Republicans because of his primary fight in 2000 with George W. Bush. Those feelings may complicate his decision whether to seek the presidential nomination for 2008, said McCain, R-Ariz.

Atleast, he got that one right.

Looks like, there is some hope.

McCain would never be able to keep this promise. He likes to hear himself talk too much to scale it back to every two weeks.

Atleast, they should be truthful in identifying guests. Rand Beers should be identified by his latest - Kerry's advisor. Likewise, when they talk about Jonathan Turley, he should be identified as Conyer's Bush-impeachment consultant and not as constitutional scholar.

I resent mcinsane, not for his "Peacock Strut" performed with his mini-me graham in South Carolina in 2000... I resent this jerk because of his ideology of mcinsane first, I hate his face, I despise his voice, his politics suck, he is unhinged, insane, angry, and incompetent. I just don't like you mcinsane... I despise every molecule of your existence... you rat ba$tard!

Sorry for the rant, but I do feel better now!

I would start by vetoing spending bills

Remember with all rats and RINOs you have to judge them by what they "do" not what they say. Although McCain is pretty consistent he talks like a rino/rat and usually acts like one.

Yesterday on WABC I listened to the radio version of Larry Kudlow. He explained that GW's tax cuts have worked so well that the budget deficit has just been revised downward "again".

This time it's in the neighborhood of 265 billion or that vicinity, can't remember the exact amount but that's close. Kudlow went on to say that 100 billion of that is the pork spending insisted on Katrina(thats how dems get re-elected they buy their way in, with my money and yours) by the rats in Congress and another 100 billion is the war in Iraq.

That leaves a budget very near "in balance" which would be far better than the last few years of the Clintonistas since we don't really know what they did since they cooked the books so hard and basically lied their way through the last few years with bubba being otherwise occupied. Mccain lets us know in no uncertain terms why we don't want anything to do with him. He cannot be trusted to support his party and should run in the Assho__e party since that's what he is.

Good gosh. This is the first time I have visited this thread, and I don't watch television, so I don't see the Sunday shows, but...it seems like these are the same kind of people they have on every week!!!!

Last week it might have been Levin, Her Crusty Pantsuitness, Kennedy and Pelosi.

Next week it will be Murtha, Obama Bin Laden Barak, Ward Churchill and Cynthia Mckinney!

McCain is saying that Mookie has to be taken out and that we never had enough troops on the ground. His position, though he does not say it outright, is that the President is doing this all wrong and if things don't change, we will lose in Iraq.

Turly has also teamed up with Leon Panetta and the UFO wing-nuts in seeking information on 'Area 51' through the courts. I saw Turley on Hardball last week and he literally made me sick to my stomach. There isn't anything this lefty believes should be classified... and that whatever the president can do... the courts can do better.

LOL! You should call him your "very observant" little brother.

This lineup stinks. I think I'd rather do laundry.

I'll simply paraphrase what I posted on another thread this morning:
_______________________________________

I'm sick of hearing Bush/Rice were 'the biggest losers" in the U.N. ceasefire deal. If the GOP had an effective PR machine, the losers would be John Kerry, Howard Dean, the MSM and every liberal who has endlessly demanded a multilateral, peace-at-all-costs approach to the war on terror.

The RNC and all Republicans should be shouting from the rooftops that the U.N.'s and France's perfidy and fecklessness are a total repudiation of everything the libs have demanded since 9/11. (They could start with this morning's talk shows.)

This deal encapsulated every liberal prescription:
--U.N. approval
--rely on allies
--let diplomacy work
--don't rattle sabers
--win hearts and minds
--Geneva Conventions trump all

Now it's clear what comes from such pipedreams. The U.N. and France proved beyond doubt that their "word" is worthless, they can't be counted on in a crisis, and they have nothing to contribute in an actual war. Hearts and minds in the ME belong to the "strong horse". Diplomacy only works when an enemy fears the consequences of its aggression. Their toothless prescriptions have hastened the death of the U.N. and Geneva Conventions they purport to worship.

Saber rattling works only when everyone assumes you'll actually employ the saber. [Better yet, when---like Indiana Jones---you casually shoot the sword-swirling thug before he knows what's happening. Preemption, anyone?]

We have a long way to go in this war. Right now there is an opportunity to shorten that time by pointing out the total vacuousness of the liberals' prescriptions for "peace".

Hi, HC.

What is that? Is it a rally, or a town hall meeting where they'll end up calling anyone who opposes illegal immigration a "nativist."
