Oh, I am cut to the quick by your verbal parry.....
...and lack of spellcheck.
Listen, OnRiver,don’t take it so personally. There will be others that don’t agree with your point of view. This IS a discussion forum.
But the McCainiacs here insist on peeing on my leg and telling me it’s raining.
Too bad McLoser didn’t jump ship to the Dems in 2001 like he planned—then he wouldn’t be the GOP candidate for President. For that reason alone, he should have been shown the door by the GOP. He loved his country and party and President so much, that he would tip the balance of power in favor of the traitorous Dems led by Lil Tommy Daschle. Wow, McLoser must have been really PO’d when Jim Jeffords jumped ahead of him across the aisle.
The same guy who believes in the scam called global warming, who pushed amnesty not once, but twice, in the face of an unwilling electorate, who unconstitutionally abridged political freedom of speech, who founded the Gang of 14 when Bill Frist finally found his testicles. The same guy, with traitor John Kerry , in 1993 closed the door on the fate of the 600 Vietnam War POWs we KNOW we left behind in 1973 and told the POW families to cease and desist from trying to get to the truth—you know, his fellow POWS?
And this is the guy you want me to walk over broken glass to vote for?
Ain’t gonna happen. Not now. Not ever.
I admire the courage and deep principles exhibited in leaving the party---but I have to agree with cal.
Giuliani, Arnie, Mehlman, Rockefeller Pubs, the Kristol "National Greatness" whackos, and Log Cabiners are cancers on the body politic.
They spring from the Everything-For-Us-Nothing-For-You wing of US politics (no different from Me Myself and I Democrats).
This cancerous growth can't be allowed to expand and infect the political system as we know it.
The Repub party got control of the Congress, the WH, and numerous state offices, for a generation BECAUSE of conservatives.
Everytime they try to win without conservatives---it's been a disaster.
Correction. Hillary and/or Obama will beat him like a drum.
Yes, I’ll just have my friends in Palm Beach County to vote several times. Democrats can get away with that in Florida.
In North Carolina, the only way to cross party lines is to be registered as an Independent. Since I will have NO VOTE in our Primary in May, the only way I can speak as a voter would be as a Democrat. I can at least help determine the next opponent in November. Make more sense now?
You're not naive, calcowgirl, that I know.
You know and I know ...they get it....but they just don't care, cause they know we don't have anywhere else to go
Wake up!...it doesn't matter who you pull the lever for.
HILLARY WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT....mark my words.(this has been ordained by the Bush/Clinton dynasty & whoever is the puppet master)
McCain is a fake foil.
It's all a game people.
“Hillary will beat him like a drum if she is the nominee.”
And I can see you’ll be happier for it.
THen why has he ranked as high as he has as a conservative over the years? He’s consistently in the top 12%
Well, I’m convinced. Unless McCain sits down with the conservatives on this forum and in the media, in private I hope, and tries to sell them on his candidacy, he’s toast.
This is sad, as I truly believe that he can be a good president.
Guen, with the three stooges that are out there as possible nominees, there is not a dime’s worth of difference, and I’ve said so numerous times.
If Hillary or the Obamamaniac is such a terrible choice for our country, why does the GOP put up McLame, the least of the Republicans against her and/or him?
I agree with you—the fix is in. McCain has already signaled that he won’t fight either of them the way they need to be fought.
So I choose not be part of the madness. I’ll vote downballot for the other offices, but I won’t for McStupid.
The speed with which the GOP puppet masters are closing ranks, and trying to shut us up is indicative that they want us neutralized before we start to ask too many embarrassing questions about He Who is Annointed.
More silliness. Over the last few years, his conservative rating has been among the lowest of Pubbies—something in the order of 65%.
Are you going to believe some group’s ratings or your lying eyes?
I choose my eyes—I can see that he is not a conservative, because actions speak louder than words,or for that matter, ratings.
That worked out real well for them in 2006, didn't it? Many folks who are accustomed to voting GOP will continue to do so. But you can't motivate the grassroots conservatives to actually help liberal slugs get elected. Nor can you get folks excited about voting for a platform that looks like the other guys.
At a minimum, McCain needs to be fought before his Global Warming scam and all-out amnesty and open boarders finds its way into the Republican platform.
I'm in California. I think that is a very true statement, at least for me.
I have to agree with TommyDale here. In Indiana, we do not have a primary until May. In essence, we were denied any meaningful vote as to who our candidate will be. The best we can do is try to aid in the selection of the RAT candidate.
We are the people who have no opportunity to have our opinion heard or our vote really counted.
I resent that.
Of course, in November I still cannot bring myself to vote for McCain.
Top 12%? Is that some secret ranking that you found or new math? In 2006, ACU shows him as 46th in the Senate (a rating of 65 out of 100) with even Chuck Hagel showing up as more conservative.
I can't either. I just cannot reward this person with my vote. You know, it wasn't too long ago around here that McCain was considered a joke for a GOP Senator.
We aren't the weird ones, the weird ones are those that have sunk so low that they have forgotten that, just because they are too afraid to stand up to the NEW GOP. Screw them and their lilly livered weakness.
I voted on Feb 5th, so my situation was different. But I don’t like this crossing over stuff. It just screws the process up that much more, IMO. And, I must say that I love seeing McCain unable to garner even 50% of the votes, even when he’s the nominee. To me, that sends a message to the ignoramuses that pushed him through the process and in the unlikely event that we actually get a President McCain, it should send a message his way, as well. If I were in NC, I’d be punching the ballot for one of the non-McCain pubbies.
We’ll have to politely disagree on this one. I think the only way to send the message to Republican leadership is to withdraw support from the party as it now exists. There is no alternative here for Republicans.
This state allows independents to choose, but there is no “crossover” voting allowed. I just choose to not belong to the GOP as long as Ken Mehlman, Carly Fiorina, John McCain and that bunch are involved. Sorry, I have my principles.
What? Can't we at least get into a rabble-rousing, name calling, scratch-claw-and-punch, all-out brawl? You're no fun! ;-)
I suspect I would get the worst of such a brawl. You know my weaknesses.
no I dont want you to vote for him these post are for people who want to discuss how to beat the Democrats and all you guys are interested in is to say the same crap over and over again. we get the fact you aren’t going to vote for him but 70% of THIS BOARD WILL...so let us discuss how to beat the Democrats without all this stupid inane constant and thoughtless comment that has nothing to do with real discussion. .
I will be the first to admit that this is the sorriest collection of candidates in my lifetime. But having said that there is no way I’m voting for Hillary or Obama. I trust my party.
And after it's been filtered by the MSM, they'll leave McCain looking like the missing link, always just about to publicly wet himself. McCain let the MSM create him. It will be a bitter but well deserved surprised as they tear him down.
BTW, now that he's clinched the nomination, has anyone heard him refered to as the GOP maverick as he was once so popularly known?
The GOP has lived way past its life expectancy. Historically, whenever the current conservative party became too much like the democrat party,(ever protean and ever there), it was replaced by a conservative successor. The Federalists were replaced by The Whigs, who were then replaced by The GOP. Since the GOP is determined to become nothing more than the demcrat-lite party, there is no logical reason for its continued existence. Serious conservatives should begin looking for its successor.
Criminy, a shrill harradin in a pantsuits with her ample rearend in the Oval Office...time to buy cyanide futures.
I don't question anyone who plans to vote for him--it's their vote. But I do have to disagree with you about trusting the party--at least the so-called "leaders" of the party who ignore the platform and push liberalism. I'll be fighting that type until the day I die. In California, our last chairman publicly declared that he wanted to become a "Purple Party." Would you trust that? Is that what McCain supporters want--to have a single party system in the U.S.?
However, you didn't answer the question. What is your basis for saying that McCain is a conservative and "consistently ranks in the top 12%"? Did you not realize how bad his rankings and his record really are?
Good point! :P
Well, you responded to a post about voters in the presidential election. I was only pointing out that some of the same characteristics you mentioned about voters are shared by the supposititious "Republican" presidential nominee.
>>And I can see youll be happier for it.
Why don't you go start a Republican forum if that's all you want to discuss?
Some of us on this conservative forum would like to discuss conservatism and how to fight liberalism.
I suspect a good deal of McCain supporters simply do not, as I suspect that a number of his voters may not have known.
Untrue. McCain's 2006 ACU rating is 65%. That's lower than some Democrats.
“no I dont want you to vote for him these post are for people who want to discuss how to beat the Democrats “
You’ve been here along time and know better. McNutt hasn’t received the nomination yet. Now is the last time we can influence the GOP in this election.
How you beat the Democrats is not by running a liberal Democrat. And if 70% of the people here really believe that, we have our work cut out for us.
You have bought into the “it’s hopeless let’s just grin and bear it—one more time” mantra—just like the GOP wants you to.
And BTW, if you really believe these threads are just for those who wants to beat the Dems, then ask Jim Robinson if it OK to run a disclaimer at the top of the thread, and all of the McCainiacs won’t have to be bothered with conservatives who really want to win in 2008.
Probably the last couple years he’s slipped, but over all during his tenure he’s voted pretty conservative. At least that’s what the media has been touting...
I know what you’re saying. Let’s stand firm. Give them this election...and then come back hard in 2012 when the liberals have screwed things up...
I still think we can influence McCain to succeed. Terrorism is the most important thing right now... The economy too... You look at the first 100 days for Obama and Hillary and you’re looking at the beginning of the fall of the roman empire...
Haahahaha Very funny...
right your rants are going to stop the whole convention process and put a real conservative into the position. YOU AND THE REAL CONSERVATIVES...hardly. You live in an imaginary world from some asinine websites you get information from and then regurgitate it out amongst us. The thread was about Rove and others who are coming to help McCAIN. Your juvenile approach is neither conservative nor principled its just constant ignorant rantings. I certainly wouldnt take advice from you nor would any reasonable person. By the time of the convention this website will be 90% for McCAIN. just KEEP WATCHING THE POLLS TAKEN HERE.
Be quiet and give it a rest. Your nastiness never ends. calcowgirl is a far cry above you.
Go to sleep or go get some. Quit embarrassing yourself with your nasty BS.
The RINOS have a real problem on their hands.It was seemingly easy enough to get McCain nominated.Now how do they intend to get their POS candidate elected?Insulting conservatives sure isn’t gonna help them with THAT.
The only ranting I see is coming from your computer.
I was a Conservative when being a Conservative wasn’t cool.
I was a Conservative in a liberal state, swimming against the liberal tide like a salmon swimming upstream.
You want to elect McCain—fine—it’s your vote.
But you don’t get to say over and over that John McCain is some kind of Conservative icon without an argument from me.
I have consistently shown over and over on this thread and others where McCain is not a Conservative. And you have not proven otherwise.
I have stated facts, not some things from “an imaginary world”.
You, on the other hand, have constantly insulted me and other posters with your incessant, juvenile tripe instead of responding with facts.
McCain is not a Conservative, and I say, he isn’t a Republican. Having Mehlman and Rove helping him is more proof that the idiots who have gotten the party so far away from Reagan are at the helm again.
You follow them off the cliff like a good lemming.
Those of us with a brain will be here to pick up the pieces and try to salvage what is left after November 4th.
the idiots who have gotten the party so far away from Reagan are [still] at the helm
There you go again with the name calling. I will forgive you. You must be suffering with an affliction like Tourettes or something.
