You are wrong. I am passinate about McCain’s candidacy. There are others. And if you quit the baby navel gazing and get one tenth passionate we might have a chance of winning.

Don’t discount the millions of Americans that are passionately against the prospect of Obama as POTUS, and that includes many Dems (now Independents).

They are scared of BO. Just read the comments at the end of articles about BO.

What is “baby navel gazing?”

Have any luck turning anyone around with that type of obnoxious behavior?

I have another way that you and McCain can get committed conservatives to get energized is for McCain to actually change his positions on Amnesty, the Global Warming Scam, Embryonic Stem Cell Research, and his approach at using Big Government to solve all problems.

Shoot, I'd take 3 out of the 4 (the fourth being his Big Government Solution tendency).

If he wants us excited about him, he needs to represent us.

Norman, I am with you.

I am a conservative republican and have been since the day I could vote (1983). The fact of the matter is, we don’t always get the candidate we want — but, we have an “electible” candidate and that is the current issue.

I am as guilty as the a lot of conservatives for “letting the other guy,” worry about the issues while I was off attending to my kids after school events, standing watch while I was still on active duty, and generally speaking “assuming” that I had nothing to worry about and conservatism would always be around. I just needed to show up at the polling place and cast my ballot for the “R.”

I believed that American’s, true American Conservatives, the ones that go to church on Sunday, say grace at the dinner table, own guns, are opposed to higher taxes and abortion would always be out there fighting the fight.

Well, in the short time on FR I have discovered that I had been lulled to sleep.

I’m awake now, I still support John McCain 100% because the thought of obama just scares the liv’n s#@# out of me, I have a son on active duty now.

So, for the future, who is being groomed, who is being vetted — do we ever want to wait until two years before the next election to start pushing an electible candidate forward — the key word here is electible.

The fact of the matter is, the republican party has allowed the media to make being a republican conservative a dirty word. That has to change.

I was passionate about Duncan Hunter's candidacy to the point of contributing significant amount of sums to his campaign and worked in my community to garner more support for him. The only thing McCain will get from me is my vote come November, and he can thank B.H Obama for that much.

How can you be passionate about McCain and post as a conservative? I am not flaming you, but McCain is anti conservative. He has spent NO time talking to us.

I am kind of tired of all of us being nasty to each other, but, I am a person who really does not see any value in McCain.

I am not voting for Obama, by the way. But I am also not inclined to vote for a man who shares none of my beliefs.

I do not want the US to be one with Mexico or Canada. I want to elect a leader who has a love for US citzens first.

Neither candidate shows any desire to pander to us. I am really tired of it. All of this crap will not get me to the polls come election day.

How the hell can one do that?

One is either passionate or they are not.

McCain ain't helping his case either.

Amnesty - McCain / Kennedy
Free speech - McCain / Feingold
Excessive bi-partisanship
Early troop pull-out
Big government / spender
And the beat goes on

Yes Norman. We know about you. Care to share how many names you have on your McCain ping lost?

How in the world can one be passionate about supporting a man that lives to stab us in the freakin’ back?

Passionate isn’t going to happen when it comes to McCain. If you stop all the insults and quit expecting what you are not going to get, Barry will do the work for you.
