Posted on 05/10/2008 9:11:06 AM PDT by RonnieFan
All indications are the Democrats will pick up seats in both the House and Senate, with the Senate likely being a couple of RHINOs away from the magic 60. McCain is no Reagan but he's the only thing standing in the way of the most liberal Senator in Senate becoming President with a clear majority in Congress and at a critical time with decisions to be made on the war on terror, the war in Iraq, heath care, taxes, illegal immigration and likely the Supreme Court.
Sometimes you do have to pick the lesser of two evils. This is one of them. I am fully aware that I'll be let down by McCain on some key issues but I know I'll be let down on all of them if Obama is President.
“Wake up Conservative Base!”
We’re wide awake and have been for years. Only takes a few shivs between the shoulder blades with that motherf*****s fingerprints on the handle to open your eyes.
Screw McCain, and screw anyone trying to coerce, threaten or cajole a vote for that bastard. He doesn’t deserve it.
It goes beyond that... Remember the “nuclear option”? The filibuster is a Senate rule, not a Constitutional limitation. The donks already have a majority in both houses... Give them the Presidency and you can bet that dingy Harry will turn over the filibuster rule faster than the wheel on a roulette table spins. And there will be NOTHING to stop the donks from implementing their plans...
More than one of my students have died in that WOT, to vote for Barak would be an insult to their memory.
BTW, I think we have quite a few deep cover trolls here at FR. I confronted one that actually equated John McCain's military record with John Kerry's.
The poster said that McCain record was worse because he cooperated with the enemy and made several propaganda films for them. No mention that John Kerry went to Paris on his own accord (in military fatigues)to negotiate with the enemy.
Oh yeah we got a troll problem here.
Not gonna do it. Wouldn’t be prudent.
The thing is, McCain compared to the far far left Obama isn’t even a lesser of two evils. For all the irritation of McCain, he is still pro life, pro guns, pro military and generally pro economic growth. I know he has wandered around, but Obama with a huge advantage in congress? That is scary. People throw the socialism word around lightly, but this is the real deal, and everyone seems asleep at the switch.
Those that say McCain is no better than Obama have their heads somewhere other than where they need to be.
Even if McCain is just a stop gap until 2012, it likely prevents a wildly liberal addition or two to the Supremes, and won’t cause a disaster in the Iraq and tax policies.
It may not be inspiring, but the fear of Obama’s leftist policies is enough to motivate me.
Hopefully McCain has an inspired choice for VP. Most of the time the VP is irrelevant, but this time he may be handpicking the de facto front runner for 2012 on the GOP side.
I’ll vote for McCain, but since he thinks that money corrupts politics, I’m not going to give him any.
Screw McCain, and screw anyone trying to coerce, threaten or cajole a vote for that bastard. He doesnt deserve it.
I think you just hit on McCain’s bizarre situation. He’ll get the votes, but not the money.
I just hope the shadow groups do enough of the dirty work to show the real Obama and the path to socialism we are THIS CLOSE to walking down.
When you throw in the possibility of a favorable congress? Wow.
“BTW, I think we have quite a few deep cover trolls here at FR...”
Soros is spending millions for paid operatives to infiltrate FR and other forums and blogs in order to create dissatisfaction and suppress the Republican vote. Why would someone rant on about not voting for McCain unless the objective is to get others to do the same.
If I weren’t voting for someone then I wouldn’t have a dog in that someone’s hunt, therefore, I wouldn’t post anything.
I’ll be sure to send you a thank you note in 2011 when Obama passes the most radical leftist agenda in American History.
Shouldn’t this be in breaking news? It’s definitely breaking new ground: a thread telling conservatives to stop whining and vote for the turd McCain. Unheard of.
And to answer my own question, I'm trying to kick Carl Levin out of office, and re-electing our Supreme Court Justice Cliff Taylor.
And yes, I'm holding my nose with McCain. One reason. Supreme Court.
If I werent voting for someone then I wouldnt have a dog in that someones hunt, therefore, I wouldnt post anything.
Wow, check it out, another newbie telling us we're Soros-paid trolls unless we shut up and/or support McCain.
“Ill be sure to send you a thank you note in 2011 when Obama passes the most radical leftist agenda in American History.”
The markist or the socialist, trust me it is coming either way. Difference between you and I, when the marxist wins in November, you will be weeping for our nations fate. I started weeping the day that the socialist became the prohibitive nominee for the Repube party.
“And yes, I’m holding my nose with McCain. One reason. Supreme Court.”
With the dems in power you and I BOTH know that if the backstabber is POTUS, Ted Kennedy is picking the judges.
It isn’t like we’re going to just suffer four to eight more years of leftism, bring in a “true” conservative, and then simply roll back the mischief created by the leftists. Things don’t work that way.
“Wow, check it out, another newbie telling us we’re Soros-paid trolls unless we shut up and/or support McCain.”
Aren’t they just too cute?
