This will be the kiss of death for Willard. No one gives a rat what McCain thinks at this point. In fact, there is much to hate McCain for. Number one, because of his inept campaign, he gave us the Obama Regime.

Thanks, John, you did us a favor. You will put a stink on Willard’s campaign with your endorsement.

I imagine Willard begging and pleading with McCain not to endorse him.

It might change my vote...for the worse. I was willing to hold my nose and vote for Romney over Obama, but McCain’s endorsement makes me more likely to avoid voting at all if Romney is the Republican nominee.

If it’s Romney, write-in “Mickey Mouse” but make sure to vote for Representatives and Senators.

Haha Thanks McCain. If I wasn’t sure before, now it’s a lock that I will never vote for Mitt Kerry.

Loser is right — when EVER did a contender in a major party say before McLame “You have nothing to fear from a President XXX” where XXX is a major party opponent? GAVE away the game. No. I guess we couldn’t have expected any other endorsement from John McCain now, but it underlines the mushy lousedom connection between the two.

At the very least, it requires a clothespin instead of the simple hand holding method of reducing the stink.

While the neo-nazis saying nice things about Ron Paul are vile on a whole different level, it’s still gotta suck to get the McCain smooch. Maybe this is just one level below the much coveted Jim Jeffords endorsement.

An endorsement from McCain, who sponsored and push through NDAA, not a good thing.

McCain's bloated cotton candy daughter endorsed Romney a while ago.

Now if Cindy emerges from the prescription drug fog long enough, she can give Romney the complete set.

So Romney gets the John McCain *and* the Jimmy Carter endorsement?

That should be the kiss of death for any thinking Republican.

I'd vote for Mickey Mouse over Obama. Obama must go. But firing Obama is NOT enough.

If Romney gets everything he's proposed, it won't be enough to save the country. That's why I've been an anti-Romney supporter; Palin, Cain and Santorum.

Santorum's not perfect, but he's put himself out there. He understands islamism. He understands Iran. He's better than Romney on the economy, although not dramatic enough for what we need. Santorum seems to be a guy, who can analyze a situation and seems willing to draw the consequences of that analysis. That gives me some hope that Santorum has the guts the take budget, regulatory, and monetary actions that are required as the crisis hits ever deeper. I believe Santorum has the guts to be unpopular in taking tough decisions. Mittens, not so much.

Where were other nationally prominent and articulate conservatives stepping up to run? They aren't there, Santorum is. I think we've found our candidate.

These Are The Times That Try Mens Souls
OBAMA KNEW HE WASN’T ELIGIBLE FOR POTUS

Excerpt:

*snip*

February 18, 2009 at 10:23 pm

If one were to look at the activity on Capitol Hill during the campaign, there would be no question in their minds that both McCain and Obama were sweating the “natural born citizen” issue.

How do we arrive at that conclusion? We take McCain’s ingrained, glib advice and “Look at the record, my friends“.

Doing just that, we find that back on February 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a bill to the Senate for consideration. That bill was known as S. 2678: Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act.

The bill was co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and Sen. Thomas Coburn (R-OK).

Bill S. 2678 attempted to change article II, section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States with reference to the requirements of being a “natural born citizen” and hence; the entitlement to run for President of the United States.

This bill met the same fate that similar attempts to change the Constitution have in the past. Attempts such as The Natural Born Citizen Act were known to have failed and the text scrubbed from the internet, with only a shadow-cached copy left, that only the most curious public can find.

*snip*

Within only five short weeks after Senate Bill 2678 faded from the floor, we find Sen. Claire McCaskill back again, making another attempt with Senate Resolution 511.

On April 10, 2008, she introduced a secondary proposal in the form of a non-binding resolution, recognizing John McCain as a “natural born citizen” in defiance of the Constitution. Curiously, it contained the same identical co-sponsors, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
