McCain says GOP will lay out 10-point election platform
The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2010-02-16 | Michael O'Brien

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.

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?

Unless about 8 of them have to do with developing vertebrae and getting rid of RINOs, I’m not interested.

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 Republicans....”

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.

“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.

Palin’s endorsement for McAmnesty doesn’t carry nearly as much weight as Arpaio and Simcox’s endorsement for Hayworth.

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.

If the first point is not to rid the GOP of RINO’s like McInsane, you can forget the other 9 points.

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.

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 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.

"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
wouldn’t make any sense at all.""

McCain’s ten-point plan:

1. Amnesty for illegals.

2. Gut the First Amendment.

3. Bipartisanship.

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 Obama’s 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 you’re 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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s middle name inappropriate. “It will never happen again. It will never happen again.”

Yes, with McInsane as President the leftist agenda would be passed, the GOP would be dead, and he would be railing against the Supreme Court's decision to curtail McInsane-Feingold.

The only 10 point platform I want from McInsane is how he will retire before the year is out.

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 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.
