McCain has done incredibly well in what amounts to the first debate of the general election, his campaign commercials are among the wittiest and hardest-hitting in years, and he has obviously been making a sincere effort to appeal to the base.
When does he stop being "McStupid" to you people?
As soon as he admits McCain-Feingold was a HUGE mistake, gives up his quest for shamnesty, and stops agreeing with liberals to ‘get along’
Some folks are so hate-obsessed they can’t get past the differences and acknowledge the good sides of McCain and his effort to reconcile with Conservatives. Now that a pro-Abortion candidate has been ruled out, all Conservatives concerned about the threat the Democrats pose to our country, should rally around McCain and crush Obamarx. John had won me over fully after Saddleback.
I agreed (past tense) until the most recent of the bunch, where McCain attacks Big Tobacco, Big Corporations, and especially, Big Oil. Yes, Washington IS broken, but the problem is that our SINGLE-DIGIT CONGRESS is broken.
The mess we are in is solely and absolutely the fault of Congressional meddling, and now this gang-of-10 wants to meddle even more.
Meddle with commodity markets, where traders have knocked the price of oil dowm from $147 to $113 as soon as they thought the US might actually get serious about drilling, thus PROVING that the issue is best addressed on the SUPPLY side.
Meddle with the product itself, with its infamous ethanol mandate that has stolen two miles from every gallon of adulterated gasoline I buy, and raised the price of virtually everything else I buy.
Meddle with the oil companies, by removing tax deductions, raising the amount these companies must collect from their customers - thats us, folks - by $68 billion so they can misallocate and misdirect the funds into blind alleys of meaningless, politically correct research that is really more about the fine art of grants-manship.
CONTINUE to meddle in the process of exploration and extraction of our own AMERICAN energy resources with nonsensical restrictions and limitations on locations and technologies. 50-mile limit? There MIGHT be oil there, but we KNOW there is oil much closer to shore.
MY PERSONAL CONTEMPT FOR THE SINGLE-DIGIT CONGRESS KNOWS NO BOUNDS!
