McCain is not perfect but he is the least likely to engage or approve of PorkBarrel Spending. He has consistantly been for the War even though he did not agree with the Bush Administration about the prosecution of the war in IRAQ until the Surge was implemented. He is a far better choice than any Democratic candidate this year. He can win while MITT may not be able to. The Democrats have the edge due to the facts that
1. 8 consecutive years of the GOP in the White House
2. GWB 43 has become a liability for the GOP. I like Bush. However many voters in 2008 do not and that fact will influence many of them as they go into the voting booth and cast a vote.
After Thompson dropped out I realized that my Ideal Candidate for POTUS can not win. I am willing to support the one who emerges from the RNC Convention with the nomination in hand. If it is McCain, I will support him and Vote. I will also encourage others to vote for him rather than let any Democrat win this year.
Apologies to any who feel I am spamming this message on campaign threads, but it is an important message on a key vote which needs to get out.
Were you an amnesty fan?
Furthermore, after the Gang of 14 episode and CFR and Amnesty, how can you say that he will be predictable as a conservative in future issues? To me its too easy to see what you want to see in a candidate and not to intellectualize the pros and cons. I hate to say it, but I voted for W for reasons other than how he governed. I don't want to do that again and McCain is a real problem to me.
Now I think that Romney will be a more predictable president as a manager of the economy and as a prosecutor of the War on Terror. Those are my main two points of interest and I think that he will do better than McCain on those points and others.
We must not and cannot support pro-amnesty McCain in the primary. he sold us out and I wont sell myself out to support him.
better a convert than a traitor - Another Conservative for Mitt!
