But he’s still a loser.
Back to your regularly scheduled thread.
I'd like to see a way to vote for McCain, but I can't get his finger out of my eye.
My BS meter pegged on that sentence.
Dang. Actually, I think it melted...
My ... my ... they are getting inventive, aren't they?
I havn’t even voted yet, and surely won’t be for McCain.
Off topic but I saw Monica on with John Gibson yesterday. Lookin goood.
I don’t agree that his lifetime conservative score is more relevant than his CURRENT conservative score.
I think the article skips over the party insiders and back dealings that played this game.
We should even revisit the whole concept of Thompson as a vote splitter for McCain.
I like Monica but how did she get a Ph.D. with that kind of thinking? McCain got the nomination out of revenge that the evil george bush stole the election from him in 2000? Did anyone here vote for McCain to right this wrong?
>> While conservatives were off flirting with every Rudy, Fred, and Huck, the Nice Guy, Mitt, waited patiently, holding a bouquet. By the time we realized the Flash in the Pan Guys werent the ones to bring home to mom, it was too late for the Nice Guy. And the Bad Boy already had the ticket to the Big Dance.
This woman is a PhD professional? Pathetic.
But, Not guilty!
Another one of the Republican elites, pandering for their appointment in the McCain Administration. (Not!)
No, Monica the PhD. McCain was identified by the voters in 2000, if not by the morons like you on the Straight Talk Express bus, that he was not a reliable conservative and an arrogant self-righteous SOB on top of that.
McCain is where he is because of some media manipulation that devalued the other candidates, a large field that diluted and distributed the conservative vote (he never got more than 50% in competitive races), and a winner-take-all system (Republicans could learn from the Dems here) that gave him 100% of the delegates even if he won by 1% of the vote.
Monica, don't give up your day job waiting for that appointment in the McCain Administration. He is going down in flames. Let's hope he doesn't take the rest of the party, more importantly some of the good conservatives, with him.
Well, like the old recruiting poster sez, “We Build MEN!”
Yes, yes, but remember, ya gotta have something to begin building with....
Her sister who is also hot, is married to Alan Colms. Go figure!
I disagree completely. Romney never got the required traction, because the last two times he ran for office, he ran to the left of Ted Kennedy. However, he did “talk the talk enough” to draw some conservative support. The Huckster further split the vote by waiving a Bible and then the Media did their part by running story after story about Thompson “not doing as well as predicted”.
Nope. The REAL conservatives were with Fred (and Duncan) all along.
What happens when McCain plops face first into his soup at a campaign dinner? The guy is way past his sell date. Yeah, I’ll vote for this backstabber if he’s still ambulatory on Nov 4th
“Contrary to popular conservative myth, the nomination of John McCain did not materialize out of thin air.” ~ Monica Crowley
She shot herself in the foot in the first sentence.
Rush in___ October 2006 ___ before the election:
“..But none of it still clicks logically to me why you expect — or why you think — by sending your own people out of power adds up to a good thing, especially positioning you for a re-conquest of that power in 2008. I’ll tell you what’s going to happen. If the Republicans lose the House and the Senate because of principled conservatives who exercise their power by doing nothing, by staying home and [not] voting, and if the Democrats win, they’re not going to stop being kooky and they can’t start being kooky because they are kooky to begin with. It stuns me. ...
“..The idea facilitating all this, while hiding under this or behind the banner of: “I’m principled and they’ve let me down and they need to be taught a lesson.”
Well, fine and dandy, but why is it that you don’t think the left needs to be taught a lesson for their absolutely unbelievable childish, immature, and dangerous behavior the last five years? How do they escape your wrathful eye? How is it that the Democrats somehow don’t make you mad? What is this death wish that some of you have? Why is it you cannot see who the real problem in America is or who your real enemy is in a political sense? Why can’t you see it? And if you do see it, then would somebody explain to me how ignoring the enemy and allowing them to gain more power somehow advances your cause? It may make you feel better, and it may mean that you are selfish, and it may mean you’re trying to portray yourself as smarter and more forward thinking than anybody else.
But it’s a death wish, particularly this notion that they’re not going to get anything done in the next two years anyway, and they’ll learn a lesson. Let me tell you about learning a lesson. In two years, you same people who will have helped bring about an ascension to power by the Democrats are going to be so angry; you’re going to be so fed up over what they have tried to do, over the things they will maybe have accomplished, that you are going to demand power back — and you will accept anybody that you think has a chance of winning it.
Right now, that looks like McCain above anybody else — who, I must tell you, is not a conservative — and so what are you probably going to end up doing? You’re going to be so frustrated by 2008 and the thought of Hillary Clinton becoming president is so obnoxious, so abhorrent, that in 2008, you will flush your precious principles down the drain and elect a Republican, precisely the kind of Republican you think you’re running against now. Or you will at least nominate one. Who knows how that election will go. So the very principle that you are fighting here, if you succeed, you will be given a candidate who fits the very thing you’re angry about, somebody who’s not conservative enough, but probably has the best chance of winning. ...” excerpted from:
Disaster Does Loom if Democrats Win,and Will Lead to Nomination of McCain

RUSH: I want to continue on the theme that has evolved over the past couple of days, maybe even a little bit longer than that and that is the notion, well, there’s an argument out there raging between noted professionals like me and rank amateurs over whether or not it’s a smart thing to do to not vote in this election. I’ve heard this before. You know, I’ve heard the argument, “Well, the Republicans abandoned their principles, and I’m not going to abandon mine, so screw them!” The last time this happened in significant numbers to deleterious effect was 1992, when a bunch of Republicans said to hell with Bush 41 and the no-new-taxes promise that he broke.
