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.

I wouldn't listen to anything the RINO'S daughter has to say.
She is a Baby RINO.

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.

Actually I think that Schock is fairly conservative. I wouldn’t count what miss piggy, er I mean meagan mac, thinks about him against him.

Could we PLEASE not post any more Meghan McCain items. It’s obvious she hasn’t a clue, and she doesn’t deserve anymore attention or credence.

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.

And the daughter ... thinks ...

Not very often, she doesn't, from what I've heard and seen.

I thought he was a conservative. Maybe all she’s really concerned about are his abs.

"…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.
