his anti-republican switch is on full fibrolate
We’re getting the campaign tag line: “That’s not change we can believe in.”
Not gonna happen.
Her latest child was recently born with Down’s Syndrome. She knows there no way she can be a proper mom to her little one and be Veep as well.
I wouldn’t mind her, but the chances are so slim as to be negligible.
But his wife surely has enough money to get him some beautufl veneers....
I doubt it. I doubt the citizens of the 9th ward in NO have even heard of a Rennai. LOL. I bet McCain will get us taxpayers to buy them one.
We surfed by and listened to about one minute of McCain’s speech.
His tone is so condescending, I couldn’t stand it so we’re back on Law & Order.
Thanks for the thread, will watch from here..
I sterilized glass bottles and boiled water for my two oldest when they were babies. Not delivered, we had water you could boil the gook out of, don’t know about way back and on the gulf though.
Romney is smart, competent and has a track record of success.
That means many people here will hate him for his religion.
I like Romney. No one is perfect but he impresses.
Are you all sitting here wondering...how did we end up with this man as our nominee? I mean really. He’s dreadful on so many levels.
Did he even READ this speech before tonight?
If he wants to be POTUS he should pick HC!! It makes sense.
Maybe we need a drunken absentee voting for Mac thread when it gets close to election time.
I think his dentures are slipping. It’s either that or he’s been drinking a bit as his words seem to be slurring and......that’s not change we can believe in. UGH, I’m already tired of hearing that one.
But there are pragmatic reasons for picking Romney.
1. At the end, he brought a lot of conservatives aboard his Cino train.
2. He’s filthy rich.
3. He’s got a nationwide organization and workers ready at the drop of a hat.
4. He could well put Michigan in McCain’s column.
I don’t like the Cino part, but I’m not doing the picking. Who else has the assets that Romney has?
Breaking news....Obama’s the nominee...
BTW, when he (McCain) was contesting the California primary he was telling illegals he was supporting them, and then at the same time phoning conservatives in Orange County that he would close the border and be tough on illegal immigration.......Talk about Grrrrrrrrrrr!
***I'm waiting for him to touch on illegal immigration...grrrr.***
His style is going to be an awful contrast against Obama’s.
“Romney is smart, competent and has a track record of success.
That means many people here will hate him for his religion.
I like Romney. No one is perfect but he impresses.”
I agree. I would vote for him.
Indeed, dearm the enemy and that means take away the Obamination’s propaganda and MoveOn garbage.
Say what you want about McCain, but right now, he is laying a smackdown on Fauxbama and his policies.
That little under the breath chuckle before his line “that’s not change....” makes him sound deranged.
Obviously not. He is about as inspiring as watching the grass grow...
The only President he can bash is the current one.
Obama has been announced the presumptive nominee
I may not be voting at all this year. I’m ill.
She could buy him a diamond grill!
I can’t stand watching or listening to McCain. My hubby is in another room and I just heard some big groans come out of there. oops, now he says, “he is so embarrasing”.
I like Romney too.
And I suspect he grow quite favorably on a lot of people around here.
(Please, no one post that anti-Romney screed with all the red font!)
I think that his arguments against Obama are very strong and will stick. Even better, they are going to really get under Obama’s skin and draw a reaction.
I put MSNBC on just to see Matthews spit and drool over McCain’s “attacks” on Obama. Him and Oolbermann are pure poliical theatre...they just interrupted the speech to announce that Obama is “officially” the nominee.
Jees, any excuse to cut away from a Republican. I think Matthews is crying over the hisotorical event tht is taking place...and I quote “a change in our planet”!!!!!
Nah, no bias there.
Re McCain dissing Bush....
....today Rush launched into a wonderful invective on McCain. I love when Rush lets it all out.
One thing Rush warned McCain about, and Rush was very, very serious, is he warned McCain not to go beating on his party’s President.
Rush went on, and I agreed with every word, that while Bush has low approval, he’s now a lame duck and locked in a war that, like all long wars, is very unpopular. But the Republican base, and many Democrats save those with BDS, do not HATE George Dubya Bush.
Rush is right. We don’t hate Bush. He’s an affable guy and if ever President got it all thrown at him, it’s Bush. Us idiots out here in la-la land who carry this country on its back whilst raising the citizens and soldiers of tomorrow understand this.
Rush warned that if McCain should lambaste this President over Katrina, when McCain has to know that ninty percent of any failure was due to state and local, that McCain could never hope to regain the respect of the Republican base.
So far McCain’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to be attacking Bush real bad but we’ll see.
Thank god Hell’s Kitchen just started.
Style aside, I agree with you.
Furthermore- the crowd sounds as fake as McCain does- remember “canned laughter” on tv? That’s what this crowd reminds me of. I can almost see the little signs popping up- “BOO NOW” “ROAR WITH APPROVAL NOW” “LOL NOW”
Like that’s news.../sarc
Ugh, McCain is doing a horrible job.
“It is almost as if the Republicans are trying to lose the White House. How in the HELL can this guy be the best in the Republican party. My Goodness he is soooo lame. Attacks are president on the War and GITMO.. Hugs a tree and kisses Hillary’s Butt. Oh I think I am going to Barf.... “
I feel the same way. Had to quit watching and come here to FR. I will be voting for McCain in November, but whenever I watch him speak I get ill enough to think about not voting at all. Just can’t let Obama in the White House so it is best I don’t watch McCain in order to be able to make myself give him my vote in November. Even though I know it won’t happen, my favorite dream these days is that the delegates at the Republican convention dumped McCain and drafted someone else as the nominee.
I think this is a politically expedient speech and will serve him well in the General.
Too bad no one is watching, only Fox news is carrying his speech.
“That little under the breath chuckle before his line thats not change.... makes him sound deranged.”
If a tree falls in the forest...
LOL..No Joke he is even putting my Cat ZORRO to sleep!
McCain needs money, organization, and one more big electoral prize.
If Romney is the vp candidate, maybe he cold sit in for McCain against Obama during debates. Romney might come off better??
NBC calling it for Ding Dong.
Not true. McCain been all over the board on Iraq. 1st he wanted 250,000 US troops to Americanize the war. Then he wanted the Baker Commission plan to cut a deal with the Iranians and run away. McCain is the father of the Baker Commission.
Then when he was dead in the water politically last year, McCain jumped onto the Petraus's Surge as a Hail Mary play. He had nothing left to lose.
We are succeeding in Iraq despite all the DC crowd, like McCain, could do to politically undercut the Iraq effort.
The only reason the Surge worked was Rumsfield/Bush paid the political price in 2004-2005-2006 to buy the Iraqi forces the time they needed to get up to speed.
All the Surge does is link 1 American Battalion to each Iraqi brigade to serve as on the job trainers. With out those Iraqi forces being there, the Surge would of failed.
Where Rummy screwed up was underestimating the amount of time the Iraqis would need to get it together. Where Bush screwed up was not making any serious effort to communicate to the people what was going on and letting a clown like McCain claim credit for things that took place despite him and the rest of the DC armchair generals.
Hey, you would too if it meant getting t-shirts and coffee mugs.
McCain’s actually b*t&#-slapping Obama.
