No need to trash him...but I can disagree with him. In an election cycle where many are down to 3rd choices...there is going to be divergence. I will continue supporting Romney over McCain until the issue is settled and one or the other has the requisite delegates.

Ted Olsen has sold his soul. Twice. Giuliani and now McCain. Very sad.

Ted comes from Giulianis campaign. He goes from Giuliani to McCain. What’s to admire in his judgement from a conservative point of view?

I like Ted Olson. It would be great if McQueeg nominated him to the USSC. But even if I -knew- that would happen and that he’d be confirmed, there’s still no way I’m voting for McQueeg.

McCain introduces talk radio legislation

Arizona Sen. John McCain has introduced federal legislation to protect talk radio shows from the reinstatement of past rules that required dissenting voices be given equal time on their shows.

McCain and fellow GOP Senators John Thune of South Dakota and Norm Coleman of Minnesota have put forward legislation preventing the reinstatement of the 'Fairness Doctrine'.

The Fairness Doctrine was done away with in 1987 but previously required political radio shows to offer equal time to opposing viewpoints as part of their Federal Communications Commission licenses.

A number of Democrats and liberal advocates want the Fairness Doctrine put back in place. They do not like the fact talk radio is dominated by conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Laura Ingraham.

McCain said imposing such rules would stifle free speech and there are plenty of political viewpoints in the marketplace.

Conservative radio talkers have criticized McCain for his stance in favor of immigration reform.

People, Ted Olsen is a Giuliani Ho. Quit giving him so much credit.

Ted Olson is a lawyer and has been around Washington long enough to be referred to as an insider. Endorsements from such people do not affect me at all. When I vote I do not take political advice from lawyers or insiders. If that one statement of fact and one statement of opinion is trashing Ted Olson, so be it.

Excellent. If McCain is it, Ted would be a good addition
in picking judges.

Not surprising.....another from the beltway establishment endorsing one of his own. He had me fooled for sure. I always thought he was a conservative.

Ted Olson is a good guy. So is Tom Coburn. Both good conservative constitutionalists.

But they’re wrong in this case. McLame is not good.

No trashing, however, here is someone who also supports McCain, and thinks that many in the GOP are psychotic:

What do you think of that?

Our Republican “leaders” are disgracing themselves in their quest for positions in the McCain administration.

At this point the upper crust is just jumping on the bandwagon they think is going to win.

Not a Romney supporter here, but, I lost respect for Ted when he jumped on Rudy’s ship. McCain is no surprise.

Texas Governor endorses McCain:

Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday announced his endorsement of presidential candidate John McCain. "Perry said he is backing McCain, because he is the candidate who would do the most for and win the war on terror.

He said having Hillary Clinton as a president would mean the country would be "going to hell in a hand basket."
