WASHINGTON (CNN) — At 27 years old, Illinois Republican Rep. Aaron Schock is the youngest member of Congress. He's also possessed of washboard abs and has, as of late, become a favorite target of celebrity gossip outlet TMZ. And the daughter of the last Republican presidential candidate thinks he might just be the answer to the GOP's troubles.

Schock is from Illinois. That alone raises my suspicion.

McCain gives Schock high marks for reaching out to demographic groups that do not traditionally vote Republican, for his calls for greater ideological flexibility, and his decision to avoid negative campaign ads.

Washboard abs containing a formless mushy center.

Just the kind of guy I'd expect a McCain to endorse.

Of course the McCains never expect more ideological flexibility from their opponents.

Regardless of what she thinks, he is a rising star in the Republican party, being a young, conservative voice in Congress.

Think again. Schock admits to being "progessive minded" and says his role model is Teddy Roosevelt (link).

In other words, Schock is a McCainian Republican.

Funny how the naysayers along with the haters (libs) on here start bad-mouthing the guy before they even know who he is or what he stands for.
I like him. Read about him first a couple months back in “World” magazine: (hardly a leftist/liberal magazine) they liked him and I think he is worth a look.

"…At the end of the day, Congressman Schock is only three years older than me. Which means he can relay a message in ways my father never could," she says.

It's not because your father is an old guy, genius. It's because he's a RINO!

True conservatism is timeless...........

Yeah, like that Henry Hyde. That Don Manzullo is pretty much a bad egg too. /s

Actually, I’ve heard Schock and he’s pretty impressive. I understand he had a good record in the General Assembly. If there is any glimmer of hope in Illinois and in the Republican Party here, he’s probably it right now. If the state GOP “leadership” here would gracefully retire or die off, then I’d feel a lot better about his prospects.

Thank you, my thoughts exactly, but since I didn't express mine quite like yours, I was removed. No foul language, nothing. This isn't even an article or news, more a gossip column entry.

Well he’s cute - other than that I know nothing about him but “ideologically flexible” isn’t a compliment as far as I’m concerned.

Aaron Schock is my Congressman, and let me assure you, he is a breath of fresh conservative air for those of us who have recently been represented by that famous rhino, and Zero hero, GOP traitor Ray LaHood.

Believe me, Aaron stood up to El Pres. Zero in front of a bunch of union members, and has since pointed out that the stimulus did not cause Caterpillar to rehire one single worker, and that the stimulus package is a sham. This guy is the real deal!

Full quote for the record:

When I asked Schock who his favorite president was, he told me Teddy Roosevelt, because he was “a very progressive minded… but at the same time conservative-principled person.”

True, but he’s the one from IL who stood up to Obama when he put the young congressman on the spot during his infamous CAT visit.

Normally I’m of the “who cares what Meghan things” school, but in this case she may be right, but as is often the case, for the wrong reasons. Schock is one to keep an eye on.

While his abs are nice, I’ve seen them at the local gym here in Peoria, it’s much more important that Aaron is 100% pro-life. Unlike a Rhino, Rep. Schock wants to protect America’s unborn children.

You really want that? Maybe it would be better to just figure out what is causing you to click on and read threads that you obviously have difficulty with.

Here he is. Nice jugs:

The consensus amongst the Intellectual Giants in the TMZ comments section is that Congressman Schock's abs are either gay or Photoshopped, but Obama's abs are neither.

Schock’s ACU rating, 76, is currently lower than McCain’s.

Schock voted yea for H.R. 1586, an ex post facto law (or possibly bill of attainder) that would have taxed AIG executive bonuses at a special 90 percent marginal federal income tax rate. Note that Article I, Section 9 of the United States Constitution forbids the Federal Government from passing such laws (including amnesties), but that apparently has not stopped them from doing so in the past.

Seeing her posted on FR is very tiresome. This is a gossip column/blog reference, not news. Her 15 minutes would be over by now if people would just ignore her. The Left will keep using her to continue their opposition's divide. If it's Schock up for discussion, let's discuss away without another tedious, unimportant McCain reference!

Amen. Who, honestly, cares what vacuous comments or thoughts Meghan McCain spews! Her 15 minutes of fame, obtained on the back of her father, who himself largely obtained it on the back of Sarah Palin, is long over.
