The GOP is running “ they have no where to go “ codependant abused spouse playbook for conservatives.

They think they OWN the votes no matter what they do.

The MSM already has the CPAC as McCain is the return of jesus christ to enlighten the petulant conservative children.

Grandpa McCain is pissed and he is gonna give them kids a whuppin’ to teach them some manners to their betters.

How about we start a pool as to how many times McCain does crocodile tears and mentions Ronald Reagan? I figure he is good for an easy ten mentions.

He hasn’t since Florida.

All 3 should drop out and throw their delegates to Fred. Fred reenters the race and becomes the winner immediately.

Problem solved.

“he’s going to chose a waterboy, someone who can’t out perform him, unfortunately there will be no shortage of inferior companions”.

You are right about that, and I might add personally, that as much as I dislike McCain, I will have a lot more disdain for whatever sorry twit that accepts a VP slot on McCain’s losing ticket.

Poop on the lot of them.

Maybe we should just get out of the way and let them try it. Fighting all the way to the Convention gives them a fig leaf to hide behind. They will say “Well if you had not made us fight it out, we could of won”

You also have a valid point.

Just as the many Christians who voted for Jimmy Carter simply because he was a professing Christian, now voting for Huckabee gives us another liberal: McCain. Huckabee knows it too.

And if McCain is elected President, just wait until he appoints more David Souters. Warren Rudman, the one who gave us Souter, isn’t McCain’s advisor for nothing.

Mike Reagan for 2012 (or earlier).

And no, I am not in La La land.

Excellent idea.

He carries the Reagan name and is a conservative. We want another Reagan don’t we?

I love the idea. I love that Mike.

I am serious. That is an excellent idea!!!

I had not thought about it.

Mike Reagan for president!!!

All it’s going to take is a SINGLE “senior moment” during a debate or speech and that will be the end of his candidacy. The MSM will frame their incessant reporting of it as being out of concern for his health (etc. etc.) but it will be front page news for weeks.

MCCAIN and huck have been so nasty to Mitt from the getgo, i can’t image anyone making up.
I think they should send mccain for a complete physical and make sure he doesn’t have cancer cells, those melanomas can metastasize for a long time. ugly of me, i am sorry.

You could be right because I don't think they are too happy with “Mr. Perfect” either. That said, making him do something not required of the others is discriminating, and why we have VPs. As long as a person can do the job, his age, and health should not be an issue.

Huck and McCain have some kind of agreement. I don’t know if McCain will honor that agreement once he has what he wants, but clearly Huck will stay in the race just to deny Romney the chance.

One hopes Huckaboob doesn't feel betrayed, when he's stabbed in the back by a man who callously turned his back on his first wife, routinely lies to members of his own party, works to undermine the 1st amendment and colludes with Teddy Kennedy to give away rights and priveleges that AMerican citizens don't enjoy.

Huckabee may think he will be McCain's VP, but I do not believe McCain will do so.

I agree. I think he's more likely to choose someone like Christine Todd Whitman.

God can, and has throughout history, use nonbelievers to do the right thing. Lincoln was not a Christian until shortly before he died, for example.

I believe God’s will is to vote for the person who will do the right thing and who’s got at least a chance to win. Huckabee has had no shot of winning since Florida, and he knows it. Why he stays in to help McCain should make any Christian wonder about him.

Romney’s the only conservative who has had any chance to defeat McCain, though a rather slim one now. But I think many Christians wouldn’t vote for him because he’s Mormon, even though the nation’s founders said there should be no religious test.

It’s the issues that are important. Romney said he would appoint conservative justices. But because of McCain-Feingold, Rudman, and McCain’s comment that Alito is too conservative, I think it’s a much safer bet that McCain would not.

Yeah I know . Mr. Perfect, says... I’m sorry but I would prefer to go by what Mr. Perfect does. Don’t turn this into a religious issue. There has been bashing on both sides. How about if we just stick to issues?

Perhaps. But I believe Liberman is even more likely. That would be like McCain. Maverick, reaching across the aisle and all.

A friend just gave me an idea. We need to have a none of the above choice and if none of the above wins then the ones running would be eliminated and we could start over.

Jeeze, this sounds like Survivor...and all of the folks are jumping right in to play along. Creating alliances, and backstabbing.

Does it occur to anyone that we are ALL being manipulated.

This crap makes the Matrix seem plausible.

Who is Michael Reagan (I know who he is, btw) that he thinks he has the answers and that one of those answers is for “someone” to drop out.
In the future, we will look back on all this talk of dropping out with deep regret, IMO.
In the next race, if candidates don’t perform spectacularly right out of the gate, they’ll be asked and pressured to drop out.
If you think it is bad now, wait until this sort of thing gains speed.

Gee, and to think they went after Romney for being “pro gay”... that’s one way to set the pro gay bar even higher. The only “gayer” option McCain could go for is Lindsey Graham or Tom Foley.

“I think they should send mccain for a complete physical and make sure he doesn’t have cancer cells, those melanomas can metastasize for a long time. ugly of me, i am sorry.”

It is rather the white elephant in the corner of the room. Bob Dole had to release his medical records to calm fears, so to speak, re: his age. For McCain, it’s going to be demanded outright after awhile by the media...since they will start drawing attention to that swelling on the side of his jaw that they have been trying to hide in the ads so far. Melanoma? Lympodemia? If he doesn’t say without documentation to back it up...the dems will start a whisper campaign about how he looks like a corpse that was yanked out of cold storage a month ago...but that he has such health issues that he won’t escape the footnotes of history for not surviving the first year in office.

Huck doesn’t do Mormons. So anything between Romney and Hucklebeed is never going to happen.

You made it a religious issue to begin with where you said Baptists are doing God’s will in this.

But, okay, now let’s stick to the issues, which are what matter. Take a look at Huckabee’s fiscal record on factcheck.org and see if it squares at all with what he says. It doesn’t. FactCheck quote: “We found him to be misleading and incorrect on several points.” And they name them.

For example, he raised taxes 21 times, a net tax increase. One of them is a “bed tax” (named by him) at hospitals.

Mr. Christian portrays himself as a fiscal conservative when his record shows he’s really a fiscal liberal, and he’s also lied about Romney’s so-called “flip flops” and stand on the war.

Romney’s not perfect, but he’s a lot better and certainly more honest than McAmnesty and the Huckster, who has duped many Christians into voting for him in order to help McCain.
