Meghan McCain warns of looming civil war in the GOP [says conservatives "obsolete," should give up]
CNN - Political Ticker ^ | 2009-04-18

Posted on 04/18/2009 9:37:28 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Meghan McCain warned a group of gay Republicans Saturday that there was "a war brewing in the Republican Party" – a war between the past and the future.

"Most of the old school Republicans are scared s***less of that future," she told a gathering of the Log Cabin Republicans, a group of gay and lesbian party members.

The 24-year-old daughter of former GOP presidential candidate John McCain pushed back against critics upset over her comments to CNN that she wanted President Obama to succeed, and played down her recent headline-grabbing feuds with conservative commentators Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham. "I did not expect my frustration with what I perceive to be overly partisan and divisive Republicans to cause a national incident," she said.

"I feel too many Republicans want to cling to past successes…I think we're seeing a war brewing in the Republican Party," she said. "But it is not between us and Democrats. It is not between us and liberals. It is between the future and the past…

Her dad is the past. The failed, big-tent past. The failed compassionate-conservative past. We are the future. The no-nonsense conservatives, who stand on principle. Unwilling to compromise with socialists.

I really hate to say this but...

This is what folks get for voting LOTE. McCain should have been resoundingly crushed in November. Instead, all the LOTE voters emboldened the RINOs into thinking that they still have a chance.

Stop voting for Republicans just because they are Republicans. Vote for conservatives who believe in less government and more freedom, and don't be afraid to vote third-party if necessary.

Did you bubble in McCain-Palin last November? If you did, then you failed to stand on principle.

Now, if you wrote in Palin, on the other hand, then you did just fine.

If anyone needs to be scared, it’s Meghan. The most unloved thing in the world is a liberal republican. They get no love from conservatives or liberals. If they did the liberals would’ve voted for McCain and he’d be president.

She’s in the group that is the most endangered species club. There are plent more conservatives than liberal repubs. You can just drop the whole lot of these RINOs in the democrat party and there’s absolutely no difference.

Everything about her screams liberal. I don’t know why she even pretends. She is asking people to give up the principles that they have and that make this country great to be “hip and cool” as she puts it. No wonder my generation is looked upon like a bunch of losers.

NOW I understand why Sarah Palin and Meghan never got along. Before I didn’t get it but now I do. Meghan doesn’t like her because Sarah is against gay marriage, pro-life, and pro 2nd amendment. Meghan is an embarrassment.

And her speech at the LCR is even more evidence she’s a lesbian. Given her overt hetero-bashing of anyone against gays, it’s pretty clear she is.

Her defense of gays and attacks on those who don’t approve of their lifestyle choices is a good indication she is.

Ah, the wisdom of a 24-year-old combined with the arrogance of a McCain...

John McCain meanwhile reminds me more and more of the Admiral McCain who, during the Battle of Leyte Gulf, steamed off over the horizon in search of a Jap fleet that wasn’t there...

Meghan is beyond embarrassment. She is a Vichy RINO winning to sell conservatism out to be "cool."

At least Sarah seemed like a normal person. Too bad she hitched her political reputation to Senator McQueeg.

“”I feel too many Republicans want to cling to past successes…”

If she actually had a brain, she’d realize that those “past successes” have been the ONLY successes in the GOP. Her idiotic father has won nothing nationally, her milquetoast ideas have won nothing but minority status.

Does this human heifer seriously think that people take her seriously? She’s a laughingstock who has far surpassed her 15 minutes. She will let anything come out of that huge mouth just to keep in front of cameras. She’s a narcissist in the mold of Zero...say anything to keep in the public eye.

Eh, then why doesn’t she come out? Seems like that’s something she’d have no problem doing if she were. Lots of ditzy women like her are “fag hags”, but not lesbians themselves. I think that’s more likely.

We're really discovering what Meghan McCain is all about. Her contempt for conservatives is stunning. This is good, though. These arrogant, liberal Republicans need to be fully exposed and ousted from the party as much as possible before 2010.

The liberal nonsense that is spewing forth from the McCain camp shows us that the Republican party is infested with liberal traitors, They just picked Gov Palin to appease the Conservative base, Now we see why the Governor was miss handled and why McLame would not go on the O'rielly show and would not let Palin.

From the article:

"I feel too many Republicans want to cling to past successes…I think we're seeing a war brewing in the Republican Party," she said. "But it is not between us and Democrats. It is not between us and liberals. It is between the future and the past… "I am concerned about the environment. I love to wear black. I think government is best when it stays out of people's lives and business as much as possible. I love punk rock. I believe in a strong national defense. I have a tattoo. I believe government should always be efficient and accountable. I have lots of gay friends. And yes, I am a Republican," she told a cheering crowd.

Valley Girls laugh at Meghan McCain.
