Yep, and they will vote for McLame simply because he is not Obama or Hillary. Give me a break and tell me who the heck John McLame really is.

Btw, all Cesar Chavez ever gave his people were outdoor toilets and he lied to them telling them he was living just as they were when truth be told he was living a life of luxury as was his daughter.

>>>By taking the “constitutional option” (a/k/a “nuclear option” in Dem-speak) off the table,

And thank god he and the other 13 did. The proponents of this insanity seemed to think a Republican congressional majority was eternal. Had the ability to filibuster been so thoughtlessly destroyed, the Democrats following the 2006 election would have ruled without obstruction or limit. What can be done with judicial filibusters could be extended to any matter the senate would thereafter choose.

>>>McCain and his fellow “maverick” GOP cronies doomed not only a handful of worthy circuit and district court nominees to non-confirmation,

No presidential nominee for federal office is guaranteed committee or congressional approval. This is especially true in a 51-49 Senate. But an unstoppable filibuster guarantees they will never even get the opportunity for a vote. The McCain compromise only dealt with this, not final confirmation. In any event, when ALL nominees are being blocked, getting them back into the confirmation process is a victory even if not all ultimately are confirmed.

>>>they ensured that the White House would thereafter dare not make any more controversial nominations

A nomination is as controversial or non-controversial as the opposition chooses to make it. In truth there was nothing disqualifying about any of the judicial nominations that were blocked dead before the McCain compromise got them to the committee or the floor.

Likewise there was nothing truly controversial about Roberts or Alito, but controversy was manufactured to oppose them and many democrats joined the effort. Kennedy and company however could not filibuster and block them because of the McCain compromise. In any event I can’t complain about the overall quality of the federal judicial nominees.

What is it the lib media can go after? McCain is an open book and is well known. Seems like all they can do is go back to the Keating Five thing 30 years ago and even then he was found guilty of nothing like the Democrats were.

There simply is nothing on McCain as witnessed by the pathetic attempts of the NYSlimes in suggesting an affair with a lobbyist in 2000 or the fool that claimed because he comes from a military family he is suspect as far as judgment. You may not like the man or his positions, I certainly do not care for much he has said and done, but I don't believe his character or credibility can be attacked effectively by the media or the liberals.

I am certain that McCain would look for the first excuse to declare victory and yank the troops out before the job is done in order to fulfill what he thinks it the desire of "normal" Americans.

There is simply nothing in what he has said that gives credence to your claim he would pull troops before the country is secure. In fact he is on the record multiple times as saying we would maintain a presence there for years should it be necessary siting our forces in Germany, Japan and S. Korea.

Fauxbama... proof that faking it can’t make it.

Fauxbama... Making George McGovern look good.

Fauxbama... Yea, the democratic party is collectively that stupid.

Fauxbama... Who says a do nothing can’t be a presidential nominee?

Fauxbama... who says pandering to liberal white guilt and black anger doesn’t pays well?

Fauxbama... come on, you know I deserve the White House, my wife is more angry and bitter than Hillary.

Fauxbama... Yea, so what? I look like Alfred E Newman and don’t have half his charm.

Fauxbama... Because hate from the pulpit gets him going.

Fauxbama... the punchlines write themselves.

“McCain Trusted More Than Obama on Economy, Iraq, National Security”

And on NOTHING else.

Since when does the Drive-by media limit itself to the truth? Once it gets out into the media land, what is true will take a back seat to what is reported. And then character and credibility no longer matter.

Shoot, look on the left wing (MSM source) websites at the innuendo and half-truth that passes for “fact”. Truth is NOT a requirement.
