Exactly my point. Say what you will about McCain, can any of you McCain haters honestly say that America would have been worse off on July 20, 2009 than we are today if McCain were President? Would we have a runaway Congress running amuk? Would we have a leader bowing down to Saudi kings and shaking hands with evil dictators all the while smacking Israel in the face? Would we be facing this monstrosity of a health care nightmare? Would the House have passed Cap and Tax? I think you know the answer.
You holier than thou conservatives refusing to vote for anything less than your perfect candidate may have (not necessarily did) put us in this boat. Voting has consequences but so does NOT voting and you have to accept the consequences of your choices. We are here PERHAPS because of those who stayed home.
This is what I don't get. People who compromise day in and day out (can't get this, yet - don't have the cash; that convertible is nice but too impractical - I can't ferry the kids, and their stuff, around in that) suddenly decide - on the one thing in which hundreds of millions of other people also get a say - that unless the GOP candidate agrees with them on every major issue, they're sitting this one out. The only place you might get everything you want is in heaven. Actually, probably not even there - I suspect that in heaven, you get everything God wants.
Less then perfect?
He was only ever so slightly better than Odinga and damn sure not good enough to convince the undecided who elect EVERY President.
If McCain hadn't sucked so damn bad he might have changed a few minds, but he did suck so bad.
Without Palin it would have been a slaughter instead of just a butt beating.
The Democrats are going to remain in power forever as long as the GOP keeps serving up RINO POS like McCain and the other clowns in the primaries. Especially when the Dims can cross over and pick the GOP candidate.
In closing my vote is MY vote and it will never be yours.
Yes it does and hopefully the GOP got the message. But if not I'll skip the next election too and I certainly hope millions of other conservatives will join me. After 8 years of big spending, government growing, open borders outsourcing George Bush I am never voting for another progressive liberal democrat, even if he does have an R next to his name. Want to keep on losing? Keep on nominating liberals.
