Skip to comments.Time to Stop griping about McCain and start working to defeat the 'Rats
Posted on 02/13/2008 3:08:13 PM PST by Blood of Tyrants
Face it. It is all but inevitable that McCain win the race for the GOP presidential nominee. Get over it. McCain will be the GOP nominee.
The time for divisive talk about how much you hate McCain for screwing the conservatives and how he is a RINO and his other faults is over. WE are doing NO ONE any good by continuing to publicly air our grievances about him. I know, I have done my share. I don't like him one bit, but he will be a far better president than either of the two 'Rats.
With the atmosphere as anti-McCain as it is, it would not be hard for a liberal posing as another McCain hater to sneak in and keep throwing rocks at that hornet's nest. So let's tone down the rhetoric and the vitriol aimed at him and TRY to find a common ground with him.
McCain, we can hope to influence and guide. Obama and Hitlery will absolutely NOT listen or compromise on any conservative issue.
We know that there is absolutely no way that the 'Rats will make the Bust tax cuts permanent if there is a 'Rat in the WH.
We KNOW that any Supreme Court judge who retires or dies will immediately be replaces with a pro-abortion, anti-gun, anti-freedom liberal; probably from the 9th Circus.
We KNOW that there will be nothing but pure amnesty and absolutely no border enforcement if a 'Rat gets the WH. The 'Rats NEED poor, uneducated, miserable people to advance their socialist agenda.
It is time to stop bickering and hating McCain and stop the postings about how you will sit home and watch Obama or Hitlery become the next president. That is worse than stupidity. It is admitting defeat and quitting.
And I for one will not give up and pout at my home on election day.
So here it is:
McCAIN FOR PRESIDENT!
BoT is talking common sense.
I'm with you. No is my answer also.
Not that this needs it’s own thread to be stated, but yes, it is time.
Sorry I’m going to support conservatives.
Its time...to get past the anger..
First Vietnam Vet and Pow nominated ! First senior citizen too *G* Talk about giving hope. He takes away the fear of growing old !
I’ll not be staying home election day, but I’ll not be voting for McCain either. I’m tired of being insulted for not falling in line like a good little girl. I’m a conservative first, Republican second; not the other way around. I’m compromised out, especially after the past 8 years of concession after concession to the Democrats.
My only concern is our men and women in uniform. If we allow these libs in the Whitehouse and with the democratic congress at thier disposal we will see blunders that will cause young American lives!
Sit down and STFU!
Don’t bully me. No.
Who does he want for VP?
I don't like the things McCain has done...BUT I will not put another Clinton in the White House....like what happen in '92....by voting third party.
Blood of Tyrants, you are pissing against the wind here. If McCain is the nominee, I will vote for him, the alternative is not acceptable with me. You and I and a few others seem to be in the minority here and the McCain bashing continues unabated.
This plain declaration of mine will probably draw fire.
There's your misunderstanding.
It's not anger.
The Grand Old Politburo can shove it.
I don't care what he says.
I don't care to read any post about what he's done, what he's doing, or what he plans to do.
I don't care who he's hanging with. Or hooking up with.
I don't care to hear his answers about any perceived problem, whether its a personal problem, or problem with some aspect of the country.
I don't care to take time to read posts from anyone who is crying while imploring us all to "Leave John alone!!".
I don't care, John. I'm just an insensitive voter, and I've lost interest.
Heck no. I want to sit in my dirty diaper until after the second Tuesday in November.
“work for McCain”?
See, that is the problem with Mad John, why work for him, when he won’t work for me?
I can vote for Mad John simply because of his support for the Iraq War, but going door to door?
No, simply because then I would have to defend all of the stuff he will support as CEO of the US.
oh when the time comes i will probably vote for him, but i will NEVER stop griping about him, i won’t give dime one to him and sure as hell am not going to volunteer one second of my time for his election. so yeah, more or less, the answer is still no.
McCain will get my vote. However, he will need to rely on his dedicated base of "moderates" and "mavericks" for his "get out the vote" effort. I have a hunch it ain't gonna work.
McCain will lose in a landslide to Obama, no matter what you do.
“It is time to get past the anger and get on with this...we have a nominee.”
A bit presumptuous on the “we”.
I will never vote McCain.
Dog, these threads will become a daily occurence from now unti November. The common counter argument is and will be that we are conservatives and not faithful party members. In the end, we’ll have to wait and see if come a Tuesday in November we’re going to hold our noses and pull the flush handles for the Party nominee. In the meantime, the answer is still no.
(For another view read Mark Helprin’s article on the editorial page of the WSJ yesterday. It ought to be available online. Actually, he makes a pretty good case.)
What if McCain picked an outstanding conservative....top notch as his VP.
Would you all still say know?
It’s not a question of hatred or anger or irrationality.
McCain is marginally better than the other two candidates, but only marginally. And if he is elected, he’ll have a much easier time pushing abominations through congress, with bipartisan support for illegal amnesty, the LOST treaty, increased taxes, a new fairness doctrine against conservative radio, and all the rest of it.
At least with Obama in the White House the country and the congress will be polarized, and we’ll be in a position to fight.
I’ll vote Republican on the rest of the ticket, but NEVER for McCain. Unless, as I’ve said elsewhere, he chooses Fred as VP and is looking particularly old and ill in November.
i said it a few seconds before you, but we are in total agreement. grudging votes don’t usually win elections, he has his work cut out for him. he’s counting on those moderates and independents, so let him light a fire under their butts to get him elected.
Ugh...I just threw up in my mouth a little....
It’s the slams time after time Dog, he has won himself no friends, then asks the very people who he has been kicking to come out and do the work.
I detest McCain but agree that we have to get behind him.
Obama for 8 years, the healthcare system he will impose and the Supremes he will appoint would be a disaster!
I’ll vote for McCain ... without enthusiasm.
I would say that’s very nice but the VP doesn’t have all that much do do with who I choose to vote for.
So ... since you have gotten all of your grievances out of the way ... it's time for everybody to shut it and vote the ticket regardless??? Surely there was another pro-McCain thread to which you could have added this little nugget.
Twelve hundred vanities down, a hundred thousand to go, it would appear.
Hillary is not an outstanding conservative.
The new Republican campaign slogan?
If McCain picked an outstanding Conservative, and I knew he was terminally ill, and wouldn't make it through his first term as President, I'd vote for him.
Its putting someone in the OVAL OFFICE who will take the fight to the terrorists.
i don’t even know if i can bring myself to put a McCain bumper sticker on. i live in suburban DC/northern VA, my vehicle gets keyed and i get dents from the libs here. i had someone accost me in my parking garage over the Bush/Cheney bumper sticker i still have on my van. i will not take any of that kind of crap on behalf of McCain.
