For the second time in as many days, Sen. John McCain was forced to rebuke members of his own party for over-the-top attacks on Democratic rival, Sen. Barack Obama.

I think we can stop there.
“For the second time in as many days, Sen. John McCain was forced to rebuke members....”
No he wasn’t.
Who forced him?
Can we have a fist fight at the GOP convention to stop this maniac from getting the nomination? God help us all! No one I know can stand him. Give the media back their love child.
Its a photo of him and his name. Not sure what is disrespectful about this. People need to see him for what he is. Im sure McCain got pressure from the left. Boy is he in for a WAKE UP CALL.
Obama/McCain 08. What a team! No one can beat them!
I agree the Repubs probably should dump McCain, but for who? Does anyone really believe the Republican establishment would pick another candidate more acceptable to Conservatives?
John’s trying to surrender before the fight has even begun. The French would be proud.
Maybe McCain will leave the GOP for the Wimp Party.
The dump McCain chant will become more frequent the more McCain continues to poke his finger in the eyes of the base he does not have....
“Can we have a fist fight at the GOP convention to stop this maniac from getting the nomination?”
If all it takes is my permission then..
Can't we as members of this completely clueless Party force them to exercise some sort of "buyer's remorse"? Our state hasn't even had it's chance to vote in a Primary yet!
This is sooooo rigged against any kind of decent sense and good government. God help us all.
Yeah sure! /sarc
I guess we have to take him as seriously as we do on the illegal invasion, tax cuts, and McCain-Feingold.
Unlike the Democrats with their "Super-Delagates", the "Republican establishment" does not chose the GOP nominee.
Primary voters do and the tribe has spoken.
Duncan Hunter would be a good start. The GOP shoved him under the bus in the beginning.
Geez, McCain is making it harder and harder to find any reason to vote for him.
I said that I would not for him, but as I witness this Obamma phenomena I have second thoughts.
Now, Im back to saying screw it, concentrate on getting Conservatives elected in the legislature and hope that in two years we can recover enough to stem the impending tide of absolute Socialism.
This is not good. May God help us.
I voted for Fred Thompson, mailed in my absentee ballot, and Thompson pulled out of the race. There were thousands of ballots dumped in the toilet in CA.
Now he’s using the demorat word. “Uncomfortable”. Well I am uncomforable with him and will not vote for him.
So you can just STFU Johnny, and let the real men point out what a load of crap B. Hussein Obama is!
|I'm going to vote for Huckabee, just so we can go to a brokered convention.
Nope, DUNCAN HUNTER IS THE ONLY ONE!!!!
What a loser this guy is. He spends more time going after his own people than our political enemies. But it is John McCain. This is what he does. What a goober.
The GOP gets exactly what it deserves with McCain.
Why should anyone stop telling information about Obama that’s true?
As long as it’s true, who cares? Who’s to decide whether it’s inappropriate.
Wait until McCain sees what he gets hit with.
My friends, please don’t attack...my friends.
Heck....WHY ARE WE EVEN HAVING AN ELECTION?.....lol
He is not running for Rush Limbaugh's job. He is running to be President of the USA. This means he will be the President of many people who did not vote for him.
When has common courtesy become a liability?
At McCain will be respected by the Press,,,,and will receive effusive praise at the inauguration next January of President B. Hussein Obama.
We'll all be able to take a lot of pride (along with the MSM and all democrats) in how civil he ran his campaign and how the country benefited by him taking the 'high road'. /s
I do believe that there is NO legal obligation for any delegate to cast their nominating ballot for John McCain at the national convention, even if he carried their state or arrived at the convention "winning" the number of delegates for nomination.
Of course, there would have to be good cause for them to consider this. (If I am wrong about this, I'm sure someone will let me know and provide me with info on where I am wrong).
I believe delegates have this freedom in case the presumptive nominee is discovered to be insane or otherwise unnacceptable as the GOP presidential nominee.
The way McCain is going, poking his finger in the eyes of conservative talk show hosts and state GOP party establishments, while at the same time praising his opponents, there may well be a serious grass roots and state GOP party level revolt against McCain in full swing come convention time, trying to get the delegates to not formally nominate McCain.
Of course, there is also a possibility of McCain having a very public psychotic episode (hopefully before the convention), that is picked up widely (at least by talk radio and the internet). That in itself would give the delegates enough reasons to not cast their nominating ballots for McCain.
Of course, that would leave us with the problem of who would step up and offer themselves as an alternate to McCain at the convention, should a majority of the delegates be in a mood to deny McCain the nomination.
McCain has to be senile. He thinks he’s carving out some bipartisan legislation, something like the McCain-Obama Screw the Conservatives bill. Someone needs to FORCE him to understand that he is running for president and only one person can win and the other person will lose and there will not ever ever ever be any consensus across the aisle, just a winner and a loser, and, most assuredly, he will be the loser.
Somebody wake gramps up.
I can’t stand McCain, but I have to wonder if this isn’t a good strategy. Let others release damning info that probably wouldn’t make the media, and then have McCain draw attention to the material by loudly condemning it.
People, low-level politics aren’t going to win this race. I think that Senator Obama’s incredibly naive approach and barren resume speaks for themselves. We don’t need to stoop to a low-level approach of getting a photo of someone in an unflattering pose and make fun of them for it. The same goes for those who make fun of someone because of their middle name. I would suspect that Obama isn’t particularly proud of his middle name.
Senator McCain is right to take this approach and it’s foolish to encourage a 6th grade insult mentality.
Good point - and he was "disappointed" in the NY Times. Next thing you know, he's going to be "feeling your pain."
“McCain has to be senile. He thinks hes carving out some bipartisan legislation, something like the McCain-Obama Screw the Conservatives bill.

I have always been convinced McCain sufferred irreversable brain damage as a POW.
The jack*sses in the RNC have no excuse other than being traitors to the American Republic.
The Convention should break open and vote for a rational leader who believes in the Constitution and God.
His glorious history aside-—and it needs to be saved from the future he’s stepping into here-—McCain is now a befuddled old dog who still knows how to bark (back the war and oppose Islamic extremism) but may not know how to bite or whom to bite. He needs to retire while he is still respected, or by November he is going to go down in history as a loser, a fool, and a hypocrite.
Sorry to say it, but there it is, and it’s horribly obvious.
John McCain is courteous apparently to everyone but the conservatives that he needs to win this election. - Nose. Cut Off. Spite Face. Just a few more lambastings of conservatives at the drop of a hat from this guy is going to assure that I’ll just decide to stay home on election day. . and it has taken a lot to make me be contemplating that inaction.
NOTHING bothers John McCain more than the fear that someone, somewhere might be allowed to say something he disapproves of. This is a man who hates freedom at his very core.
When has it been an liability to speak a man’s own NAME?
Dear Lord, have we sunk so low into PC that mentioning a man’s own NAME is considered classless?
Here’s classless for you: get a grip. Find a place that you will consider not crude. I plan to spend this election cycle and the rest of my life in a wonderful (but scary) place called reality.
Good catch. Unfortunately, it is no longer difficult to believe that that judgmental, biased wording came from Fox News.
Who? Mr. Pottymouth? The names and behavior he has displayed just towards his "colleagues" in the Senate seems to contradict your statement. He is as crude and ill-tempered as they come. If thats class, I want nothing to do with it.
Unfortunately, he is the best of the remaining three options. His strategy is to remain on substance, and to distance himself from smears- to appear to be the trusted adult, who has the experience and gravitas to lead, the very opposite of his opponent. Childish taunts about Obama's middle name do not fit into that image.
By throwing out relatively trivial plastic darts, the Republicans are following in the path of Hillary, who has been completely ineffective, and fast becoming a laughingstock.
How about some questions over why he chooses Jeremiah Wright, glorifier of racists like Farrakhan, to be his close, "spiritual mentor"? (Obama's words for this sorry America-hater).
