Posted on 11/27/2012 5:57:00 PM PST by NKP_Vet
Former presidential nominee John McCain is urging Republicans to confine their support for the unborn to rhetoric but abandon thoughts of enacting new legislation.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday over the weekend, the Arizona senator said the GOP needs a bigger tent to be successful in presidential elections, and part of that means dropping social issues important to conservatives.
Echoing the talking point that men should not weigh in on a female issue McCain said, I dont think anybody like me then pointed to himself before changing gears abruptly. I can state my position on abortion, but other than that, leave the issue alone, when we are in the kind of economic situation and, frankly, national security situation were in.

RO to McCain: My position is for you to shut the hell up.
we must keep sacrificing our progeny to molech, the economy sucks and the middle east is about to blow....
you freaking putzes didn’t do squat about stopping abrtion when times were good and you had the power. don’t give me this crap john, i ain’t buying it and nobody else is either.
NO WAY IN HELL!!!!
Him and Rmney etc
The problem is the party and the base did turn out and vote.
It just encourages more of this crap
I saw him say this.
McCain has a new book coming out: An Excuse For All Seasons.
Another sit down and SHUT UP moment from Mr. bi-partisan.
How is it a "female issue" when roughly 50% of those being aborted are male?!?!
McCain, state your position and go away.
McCain, go back to Hanoi!
McCain doesn’t have any principles, so he has difficulty understanding anyone who does. He also doesn’t understand that the problems he regards as important won’t be affected by him, one way or the other. McCain is to the economy as a blowfly is to sun spots. The same goes for national security. He is irrelevant. So there McCain, state your opinion, and then go find some geriatric hobby that will keep you out of the way.
Hanoi John running at the mouth again...playing his “(Bleep) The Base” BS garbage
These RINO PhonyCons need to go
That’s the way to bring the Catholics in.
Its kinda depressing when the last two GOP presidential races have resulted in our nominees being liberal democrats.
Do your job.
Give the issue back to the states like it was, and then 'leave the issue alone'.
I'm beginning to think illegal immigration is God's way of replacing a population that has abandoned Him. They have produced children while we have sacrificed our future generations on the alter of sexual gratification.
Every time you say, "we need to be more inclusive", you follow it with a silent "and you need to shut up or leave".
Big tents don't stand well if you kick out all the main supports.
