Really? You weren't so keen on letting them "figure it out" in your own primary, Juan!
Oh, No! How will we ever choose without your help, Mr. McCain ?
Obama will be deeply disappointed.
I’m not sure who would want his endorsement...
Go away, McLame. Just STFU and go away.
Isn’t he waiting for an appointment to some sort of job in the second Obama rein of terror in 2012-2016?
Who gives a damn, Juan.
“When you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
What a jerk.
NOBODY ASKED YOU McLAME
Oh no! Now how am I going to determine the best candidate?!/s
What a pathetic, self-absorbed dumba$$.
Maybe you should back the one who saved your ass from a shut out election result. Then again, maybe not, she doesn’t need your DC insider endorsement.
McStain is senile if he thinks someone...anyone values his opinion.
I probably dislike McCain more than anyone - and have since 1992. I had a website in 08 for the express purpose of being against McCain in the primary season. And I don’t care who / what he has to say about the 2012 race.
Having said that, it amuses me that so many posters will see a public figure’s answer to a question and assume that figure brought up the subject. This has happened on FR this week about almost all the 2012 candidates on many issues. McCain was obviously just answering the newspaper’s question.
This decision will help Sarah Palin.
You know, as hard as everyone worked to try and pull him across the finish line, this is an interesting abandonment from political discourse.
It must be that he likes someone but would look like a jerk if Palin runs and he didn’t support her, as she did him as his dynamite VP, as well as endorsing him in his Senate race.
Does this mean Palin is in?
He remains a ball-less wonder, no surprise here.
Can we trust this idiot to keep his mouth shut?
Will his equally mentally compromised daughter be his mouthpiece?
McCain will not endorse anyone...
Is that a threat or a promise?
Nobody cares, McCain.
Yes, withholding an endorsement is one of the few things that Mister McCain has done FOR his party.
McCain said she cried when her father chose Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate in 2008: My initial reaction was, Who the hell is Sarah Palin? Like everybody else.
But this fearful establishment elitist RINO will be “endorsing” furiously behind the scenes. Take it to the bank. He sees the hand-writing on the wall.
“...the most striking section of the [up-coming Palin] movie comes in the final chapter entitled, From Here I Can See November. The quote comes from Palins speech in April in Madison, Wisconsin, a moment, Bannon says, that he believes will go down in history as pivotal for the Republican Party and in American history.
In the speech, Palin goes after the GOP establishment with a fury. Ill take on the GOP establishment. What more can they say about us, you know? she rails. Game on!”
So far, cities and regions featuring “The Undefeated” include Dallas, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Atlanta, Orange County, Calif., Phoenix, Houston, Indianapolis and Kansas City.
The movie will premiere in Iowa on June 28 or 29
Nationally, the films release will be July 15 the same day that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II” hits the big screen.
The Palin movie will play exclusively at AMC Theatres, says a news release from CRC Public Relations.
The movie follows Palins rise from mayor of Wasilla to governor and then vice presidential nominee. It painstakingly explains her decision to quit the governors office after half a term a potential sticking point with voters because dozens of mostly frivolous ethics complaints were bankrupting her family and costing the state millions of dollars to investigate.
But, the most striking section of the movie comes in the final chapter entitled, From Here I Can See November. The quote comes from Palins speech in April in Madison, Wisconsin, a moment, Bannon says, that he believes will go down in history as pivotal for the Republican Party and in American history. In the speech, Palin goes after the GOP establishment with a fury. Ill take on the GOP establishment. What more can they say about us, you know? she rails. Game on! ( Is Palin running for President? A set of improbable coincidences.)
Those comments are followed by Andrew Breitbart, a conservative publisher and commentator, who calls Republican leaders eunuchs and questions their manhood; photos of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are overlaid. The Republican establishment understands that shes an existential threat not only to [President] Obama, but to them, Breitbart says. These Washington men who do not have the courage the way Sarah Palin does. In fact, rarely is Barack Obama mentioned in the film: its all about Palin taking down the Republican establishment and leading a revolution, Reagan-style, to overhaul the Party.
Mark Levin, conservative radio talk show host and former chief-of-staff to Ed Meese in the Reagan Administration, makes the case that Palin is the Ronald Reagan on this generation. Like Reagan, Palin is mocked and called dumb, Levin says, and like him, she is an outsider trying to fight for change. And in a subtle dig at the frontrunner, Levins comments that only Palin excites the base and can draw crowds of 30,000+ are overlaid with pictures of her speaking to an adoring audience during the 2008 campaign with John McCain and Mitt Romney standing behind her.
With a Democrat Party now fully committed to statism and a GOP establishment that all too often embraces a slow-stepped form of compromise that ultimately gets us to the same place more slowly, Bannons film is every bit a story about Americas larger political future, than it is biopic of one former Governor and Vice Presidential nominee, Sarah Palin.
Politico: Emails Bolster the Message in The Undefeated

Sure makes my day....like I was so worried about what this RINO had to say. Won’t have to listen to another rendition of “my friends”....barf.
I’m sure all the candidates are hoping he doesn’t endorse them! Captain Queeg’s endorsement would be the kiss of death, like Algore’s endorsement on the commie liberal side.
Good. I fear he’d back Palin just as a courtesy. He’s the kiss of death.
I love some of the feedback comments on that website. Appears FR isn’t that much out of stream with the rest of the world.
Juan will probably be too busy in Wisconsin campaigning for his great friend Russ Feingold.
Thanks for the info!
Gee, I was hoping he WOULD endorse someone so I know who to avoid.
He’s waiting for the democrat primary so he can endorse obama.
He’s waiting for the democrat primary so he can endorse obama.
Notice he said in the primaries. When someone is nominated, he will jump right in with both feet. He can’t stand not being on tv.
>>Maybe his daughter Meghan McCain will endorse someone.<<
Let me end the suspense: Huntsman.
Maybe this will good for Palin, since McCain’s endorsement probably wouldn’t help—but neither would his endorsing someone else be particularly useful either.
Of course not. This way, he can get around endorsing Sarah and be loved by the media. But the real problem for Juan is... nobody cares what he does anymore.
Hey John! Your dear friend Ted Kennedy has assumed room temperature, so now there is NOBODY who cares squat about what you think!
A gutsy move by the Maverick.
This is good if it can keep him off the airwaves.
But of course!
Simple the Quisling Juan McCain will endorse the Commie Obama Punk,Would you expect anything more?
FU Juan McMondale-Dukakis
The money quote!!!....and a song to go with it at Palin rallys....
He’s simply hedging his bet. He’s so close to irrevelant that he’s afraid if he endorses someone and they lose he will finally become unwanted.
I also hope Huckabee doesn’t endorse her.
Im not sure who would want his endorsement...
So, Ms. Palin, how did that whole "payback" thing work out for you?
The only reason McCain won't endorse is because Barack Obama isn't far enough to the left for him.
Whats the 1st words out of his mouth?
