Skip to comments."Mr. P.C." McCain: How he wants our votes but not our introductions
Posted on 02/27/2008 7:12:55 PM PST by levotb
John McCain couldn't handle the outstanding rebel-rousing introduction by Cincinnati conservative talk show host, Bill Cunningham the other day--a man the McCain Campaign had hired to introduce the Senator. Instead, Wussie McCain immediately "apologized" profusely to Obama for Cunningham's using Obama's full name over and over during the intro. This shows how "p.c." and how "wussie" John McCain is when it comes to worrying about how the left is going to perceive him. Instead of concentrating on gaining base support which he sorely needs and can't win without, he's playing to the left and saying to conservatives, "S**w you! I can win without you!".
I watched that introduction by Cunningham and there was NOTHING "nasty" or untoward in it. He didn't call the Jewish religion "a gutter religion", and he didn't call New York City "Hymietown"! As I see it, he was asking, "Do we really want a President who, if he is not a Muslim now, is going to (as Obama has said he would) 'cozy up' or "make friends" with Islamic dictators like Iran's dictator?" That was the message I got from Cunningham's words.
The ensuing flap is something McCain probably said "I could care less about", but he should care about it because it's hurting him, big-time, with conservatives who might otherwise be inclined to vote for him. Limbaugh, Hannity et al are rushing to defend one of their own, Bill Cunningham, as well they should. If McCain thinks he's "scored points" with conservatives, he needs to "think again". After McCain's shafting Cunningham following Cunningham's introduction, Cunningham said he "...would never vote for McCain" although he wouldn't vote for Hillary, either.
Besides being a nasty old man, John McCain still doesnt value the words or accolades from conservatives--even those who have endorsed him. I think conservatives should "return the cold shoulder" towards McCain in November, big-time!
Straight talk for me but not for thee.
For you my contempt and contumely.
John McCain, Senator.
Contrary to these juvenile losers who think degrading politics to it’s lowest common denominator is going to win elections.
You mean like McCain did when he repeatedly lied about Romney saying he wanted “timetables” to withdraw from Iraq?
Isn’t LYING about your opponent a “lowest common denominator”?
I Donated thousands of dollars to Bush, McTraitor will get no money and help from me,
Go Ann Coulter!!!!
Hope I didnt offend anyone./s
Yes, you offended the morons who would not vote for Mormon.
From what I’ve read and seen on teevee, tear gas, Cunningham is actually quite famous in Cincinnati...Maybe not nationally, though...
I don’t expect you to agree.
But you have no right to tell me “give it a rest”.
Then again, McCain wants all conservatives to just “give it a rest”.
I would also like to apologize to Barak Hussein Obama on behalf of Conservatives everywhere...
“Mr Obama, I’m sorry that John McCain thinks your middle name is offensive.
There, done it.
Cunningham is doing his darnedest to get a democrat elected.
Cunningham belongs in the back of Oboma’s bus for using this to make M O N E Y .
In a perfect p.c. world, you could be right, mimaw. Politics used to be fun and nasty—until the p.c.ers on the left got a hold of it in the ‘70s. The Cunninghams of the world are sorely missed by a lot of us, not so much because he’s a conservative (I’m probably far more to the right than he is, by the way) but because he gets people’s interest going in an otherwise B-O-R-I-N-G race with, unfortunately, the best people having dropped out (for reasons many astute FR’s have described on other threads).
yeah. but can this country afford 4 years of retreat in the war on terror ? NO
in WWII, would america have elected a nazi as president (even a “moderate nazi”)?!...i think we all know the answer is a resounding “NO!”
...yet today, we are at war with muslim extremists, and so i find it surreal that america is likely to elect a muslim as president (even a “moderate muslim”)...and i have heard no one in the media even mention this angle, and why??...well, it think it’s because we have been conditioned to this politically correct crap that says that it is somehow wrong to say this
...and for those who say he is not muslim, i say do you think he was given the name of hussein (mohammed’s grandson) because he father did not bring him up as a muslim?...do you think the kid had a choice to be a jew perhaps??...and if he is not a muslim now, the question needs to be asked “why?”...was he embarassed by the muslim faith, or is he still a closet muslim?
And do you remember Ann Richards nationally televised speech at the democrat convention in, I think, 1982? George HER-bert WALK-er Bush was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Blah blah blah. I don't recall the NYT's calling foul on that one.
