Skip to comments.McCain says GOP will lay out 10-point election platform
Posted on 02/16/2010 8:27:09 AM PST by rabscuttle385
Senate Republicans will lay out a 10-point election year agenda later this spring, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) suggested Tuesday.
McCain said that the GOP would craft a list of 10 legislative pledges which they would seek to enact within the first 60 days of taking back control of Congress, if they were to do so in this fall's elections.
"We Republicans have to provide -- and we will later this spring -- a positive vision with what we want to do for the country," McCain said during an interview on KFYI radio in Arizona.

Go away, McCain.
We already know what your vision for the United States is, since it's being enacted by the man whom you said "we have nothing to fear from" as President.
Cayate la voca, Juan. Stupid old fool, go away.
Why is he worried about it? Its not like he’ll be involved in it.
I wonder if any Democrat is waking up to the fact that with McCain as President and the present Congress, most of their agenda would already be signed into law?
Point One: Get rid of all RINOS. Hey, McCain! AMF!
Unless about 8 of them have to do with developing vertebrae and getting rid of RINOs, I’m not interested.
I don’t mind a new contract with America as long as incumbents are not part of it.
Why is John McCain and NOT J.D. Hayworth laying this out?
Because the RNC is trying to save that fossilized, treachorous, son-of-a-bitch!
WE? Forget it RHINO....WE want nothing to do with your PROGRESSIVE agenda and if the GOP continues to support people like YOU, the GOP can shove it.
Because McCain’s last “strategery” worked so well.
“what we want to do for the country”? How about what the people want you to do for the country? They still don’t get it. The Tea Party should give them 10 things they HAVE to do to get elected at the Mid-Term, not what they “want” to do.
You ain't part of "WE".....McCain.....
juan, please send a copy of that to JD Hayworth. He will need it...you won’t
Palin’s endorsement for McAmnesty doesn’t carry nearly as much weight as Arpaio and Simcox’s endorsement for Hayworth.
I voted for you, but do us a favor and RESIGN!
I, for one, am friggin tired of ‘platforms’. I want men and women who are stalwart in defense of American greatness, morality, liberty and the Founder’s ideals — a Constitution for a representative republic of limited powers. Only proven character counts.
Platforms are meaningless without an honesty and integrity of character to back them up.
oh brother... i’m hoping he won’t be in the Senate anymore... he’s acting like he’s leading the GOP... get him out!
If the first point is not to rid the GOP of RINO’s like McInsane, you can forget the other 9 points.
“We Republicans have to provide...”
Should read: “We mavericks who help democrates more than republicans...”
GO AWAY Juan!!!!!!
Take your 10 points and fold them 5 ways
Let me guess: cap and trade, amnesty for illegals, single payer health care for everyone including illegals, union “free choice” card check, end of “don’t ask don’t tell”, .......
Good luck with that, Maverick.
The RINO manifesto.
How about we limit it to support the Constitution.
We don’t need no 10 point plans, 20 point plans or other crap we have heard for years. Vote JD, avoid 10 point meaningless plans.
The AW ban won the 1994 election, all you need is one issue -— No more debt spending.
The first item on their list should be to have each State change their Constitution to allow the people of the state to recall every elected official that doesn’t do what the people want. That would help them make up their minds as to what they do.
If the first “plank” of the “mcloser” platform is “Give obammer a big hug because he feels bad.”, I’m going to throw up!
"A political party cannot be all things to all people.
It must represent certain fundamental beliefs
which must not be compromised to political expediency
or simply to swell its numbers."
-- President Ronald Reagan
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldnt make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
McCain’s ten-point plan:
1. Amnesty for illegals.
2. Gut the First Amendment.
4. Hundreds of millions for Planned Parenthood.
5. Hundreds of billions for the Climate Change scammers.
6. Kill all the children you want at the embryonic stage of human development.
7. Let the states decide if they want to alienate what the Founders called unalienable: the God-given right to life.
8. Elect as many pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro-open borders Republicans as you can.
9. Get more money from George Soros.
10. Preserve his own personal power.
I hope he is not one of the “points”. I really don’t want him re-elected. Go Arizona, do your duty to the country and dump this guy. BTW, John, thanks for your service but I do believe you were mentally damaged during your captivity. You should have spent a lot of time in a mental rehab ward after you were released. Not saying it was your fault, John, no one could be expected to take that kind of torture(real bone breaking torture)and come out whole mentally. Retire John, you deserve it, and so does the country.
In a possible foreshadowing of a potentially bruising general election campaign, a speaker who introduced presidential candidate John McCain at a rally here today accused Barack Obama of sympathizing with world leaders who want to kill us and invoked Obamas middle name three times calling him Barack Hussein Obama.
Local conservative radio talk show host Bill Cunningham described Obama as a hack Chicago Daley-style politician who is picturing himself as change. When he gets done with you all youre going to have in your pocket is change, he said.
McCain quickly distanced himself from the remarks, which he did not hear, saying that using Obamas middle name in repetition like that was inappropriate. I absolutely repudiate such comments and again, I will take responsibility, he said, calling the use of Obamas middle name inappropriate. It will never happen again. It will never happen again.

mccain is proud of his record,then run on it mccain,amnesty for illegals will go over big in AZ.
If McCain is allowed to act as spokesman for the GOP much longer the damage will be fatal.
The only 10 point platform I want from McInsane is how he will retire before the year is out.
“McCain said that the GOP would craft a list of 10 legislative pledges which they would seek to enact within the first 60 days of taking back control of Congress, if they were to do so in this fall’s elections.”
What polictical BS! Why sixty days Juan? If you fail to acheive your so called agenda within 60 days would you then say that you held up your end of the agreement? Of course you would! The senate couldn’t plan a keg party in 60 days. We won’t be fooled by you RINOs any longer.
This should be interesting. Now who is going to teach him to count to ten? ;-)
Ugh. Seeing that picture, which without question reminds one of the relative closeness of the subjects’ ideological points of view, reminds me of a line from Young Frankenstein:
Madeline Kahn, to Gene Wilder:
No Tongues. (eww!)
McCain is a Republican? Who knew?!
WHERE WAS THE 10 POINT PLAN IN 2008?
WHERE WERE HIS CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES WHEN HE WAS BSing AMERICA WITH HIS MAVERICKY MAVERICKINESS AS A MAVERICK CANIDATE WHO STOOD AS A DO NOTHING MAVERICK?
This time we need to make an electoral example of mccain.
Remember McCain and the other RINOs were not supporting brown, they were only keeping him in as a sacrificial lamb.
I smell another stinky mass mailing of RINO questions!
I just mail the envelope back empty.
I wonder if it is legal to scan and print a few hundred cards to mail individually in order to send a political messageg to the RINO GOP.
Mc Pain, your platform was an epic fail in 2008. Just STHU and go away.
11. Marry off my dumb-ass daughter.
He has more chance of convincing someone he’s really a conservative.
