Who cares why some people back McCain? Do the right thing regardless of what the media types do.

National Review sold out long ago.

Money is key.
Rich Republicans who despise true conservatives drive the subscription base of magz such as National Review and newspapers such as the WSJ.

(NO Foreign Nationals as our President!!)
Since conservatives are National Review’s main audience and since we already know what a laughingstock McLame is, I doubt that their endorsement will have any effect. I am more worried about the State Controlled Media and their effect on the daffy independent voters.

(Support our Troops, and vote out the RINOS!)
I read that editorial today...bear in mind that NRO has been in the tank for Romney just about forever, and he and the rest of the RINOs are scared to death of the conservative wave in the country.
Both Romney and McCain have plenty of money and Romney donated to a NRO organization during the '08 campaign...follow the money.

McCain has an 81% lifetime rating.
The 81% doesn't make McAmnesty's rating as Conservative as it appears.

Are these 'endorsements' worth anything at all???
I know I find my San Jose Mercury News endorsements very valuable -- just because they give me a good idea of how NOT to vote (every now and then they'll mess with my mind -- but they're a good weather vane where 90+% of the time I can count on them on giving an endorsement that would cause a Godless Commie to smile...) - but in general these newspapers/magazine endorsements are worth zilch...

It is disturbing that the bedrock of conservatism, National Review, has sold out on this endorsement. If National Review can no longer be trusted as the magazine for conservatives, where do conservatives go?
I generally like National Review but if they like McCain and Romney, and they don't like Coulter, the truth is they probably don't like me.

All sell outs to conservatism also threaten the eventual collapse of the entire GOP, and their behavior is, also, why I’m not convinced that November 2 will really be as big of a positive tidal wave politically as it should be for the entire GOP. I do hope that I’m wrong about my negative predictions, and I also hope that true conservatism, at every political level, wins big on November 2.

I just tell my friends here in Arizona “You’ve just got to vote for McCain, after all, all those out of state people say we HAVE to re-elect him. How are they going to get amnesty if we don’t” You should see their faces.

I no longer read National Review. I had a paid subscription for 25 years. About two years ago I started noticing my blood pressure rising whenever I visited National Review Online. And then to make matters worse, after getting you worked up with weak conservative or mushy moderate posts, they don’ permit reader comments. There is a very elite viewpoint there that is a far cry from what it once was. We can vote there too. I now spend my time at Free Republic, American Thinker, and Pajamas Media, which are all lively, thought provoking and open forums.
