Probably because there are no true conservatives left running. So everyone has to pick the parts of the conservative message that are most dear to them.
“everyone has to pick the parts of the conservative message that are most dear to them.”
That’s how I’m seeing it. My big issues at present are winning the war, pro-life, fiscal responsibility, pro-gun rights.
#1 is winning the war. Who do I think would be best sitting across from Achmadidnahjubbawhatever? McCain or Rudy. I really trust them on this issue. No matter where they stand or what they do in any other arena, I totally trust them as commander in chief.
#2 is pro-life. So far, McCain is the only candidate who hits 1 and 2.
Yet, the tidal wave of opinion on FR seems to be that McCain is a bad guy. Rush doesn’t like him. So I don’t know what to do.
Huckabee, I just can’t see him on the world stage dealing with Putin and Kim Jong Mentally Ill. Also he is a big tax and spender.
Romney, he might hold his own on the world stage, but he doesn’t seem to be top tier to me. I wonder about his conversion to pro-life and pro-gun issues. I do think he’d be decent on running things. I am afraid of social programs.
COME BACK FRED
To be sure every thinking individual right-of-center has their personal *conservative* checklist handy on what constitutes a conservative, but 28 years in Congress is rather self-serving and apparently disqualifying to the 99% of the idiot electorate who knew that all along, it's that vocal 1% that don't get it, and that's intriguing. Mysterious, too.
“Probably because there are no true conservatives left running. So everyone has to pick the parts of the conservative message that are most dear to them.”
I’m going to vote for the candidate who I think will do the least amount of damage on SUPER Tuesday.
I’m not happy about that, but it’s the best I can do.
But first I will pray that I, and all Americans, make the best choice.
