Skip to comments.Is it time for conservatives to support McCain?
Posted on 02/25/2008 9:55:55 PM PST by FocusNexus
Unless one of Huckabee's miracles happens, McCain will be the Republican nominee for president. As other presidential candidates have dropped out, some conservatives, such as Senator and former presidential candidate Sam Brownback from Kansas and Jonah Goldberg from National Review have decided to support him. But many conservative Republicans including Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and James Dobson have continued to hold out on supporting him, and may continue to do so right up until the general election.
For those conservatives who have refrained from supporting McCain because he has too many negatives, they must decide whether those negatives outweigh the negatives of having a Democrat in office.
Even so, the most important issue facing the U.S. today is terrorism. McCain has promised to be tough on terrorism and keep our troops in Iraq until we're assured of stability. The thought of Barack Obama handling our approach to terrorism should send chills down anyone's spine. Hillary Clinton wouldn't be much better, because her motive on the war on terror is to score a legacy for herself.

No. It’s time for McCain to convince us to vote for him.
“they must decide whether those negatives outweigh the negatives of having a Democrat in office.”
I’m decided already.
No way I will be voting for McCain.
In 52 seconds, you will be convinced.........
No thanks. I’ll pass.
Interestingly enough, 63% of FReepers are facing reality that McCain with all his faults is infinitely better than Obama and plan to vote for him. Very encouraging.
Of course Obama and Pelosi are deeply saddened.
Not yet! Not till I get all the stuff off me from his repeated golden shower on conservatives! That stuff requires some scrubbing by his sorry A$$!!!
Here we go, another is he or isn’t he thread.
Obama: Number 1 liberal Senator, Socialist, cult leader, husband of someone who has just now become proud of the United States of America, wants medical care for everyone except babies who survived an attempt to abort them
Clinton: Number 6 liberal Senator, Socialist, loves Nanny state, wife of a perjured pervert (which pervert would love to take up in his former residence, the White House)
McCain: Pro-life, will be tough with the budget, probably okay for Supreme Court nominations, good with military, has a wife who loves this country. Yes, I have problems with him, but far, far less than with the first two.
In short, yes - the time is now to support McCain. With money and with time.
Thank you...........good response!!
“Here we go, another is he or isnt he thread.”
Agreed. We don’t need to discuss this anymore. We already know the answer.
The fact that you can't find a video of John McClinton promoting Conservative ideas and ideals only serves to bolster my point.
Nope. ‘True’ conservatives want Obama to be President. /sarc
Yeah, I find it rather interesting that number keeps creeping up after everyone voted. I think what we’re seeing is some folks voting from work or something. It’s gone up more than 4% for McCain after the initial few days.
It was initially 58% for McCain and 42% against. I don’t think it’s changed without some tinkering of some kind.
