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!
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.
What does that mean?
I didn't agee with McCain on that but I almost blame Romney for using language that was so easily misinterpreted.
LOL, He will lose so big in november or can you not see that?
Saying mean things about the opposition just for the sake of saying them is pointless.
Like criticizing Hillary's big butt and Obama's big ears.
Says NOTHING about their record, nor anything about their REAL ambitions. That in the case of either of them is too scary to contemplate.
Actually I've never liked McCain that much and especially am turned off by his infamous temper.
But he's right on this. You can't associate yourself with a bunch of out of control loud mouths when you're running for the White House.
I believe it.
I really do like your tagline...it speaks volumes...in fact your tagline speaks more than volumes of the three offerings left running for President of the United States, if one can call such three offerings. It certainly appears, your tagline has captured the meaning proposed, by the three left, in this run for the Presidency of our Nation.....I should probably add.... your tagline is beyond the words a mere compliment could ever express.
So who are you voting for. Clinton or Obama?
Who is going to have the stones to ask him this question?
Will Barak have the stones to denounce the muslim religion?
We need an honest answer then - WHY did he become a christian & not follow his father's beliefs?
You know they believe that once a muslim - always a muslim.
BAD things happen if you accept christianity & denounce them!!
Are you part of mcnutts campaign?If not ,you sure should be.In case you dont know the bridge is out down the line.
Oh no. fartmart called you a troll.
What is your source for the above?
CTHULHU is the great monstrous creature of the H. P. Lovecraft novels. The Dread One is known throughout sci-fi fantasy as the ultimate expression of mind-wrenching horror.
Definitely the greater of any two evils.
It's terminal. Just like the GOP's future.
I will not hurl names at McCain. It is useless at this point anyway.
What I will say is McCain is not Conservative and I truly believe he will damage us.
Having said that, I have to hold my nose and vote for him because the alternative is far worse. And I hate that lack of choice!
In any event we are screwed. It is only a matter of degree.
Write in or will leave it blank and that is a promise.
sounds serious .
Everytime I hear someone tell me that I need to get behind him because he’s the unofficial (as yet) nominee, I’m going to laugh in their face.
I'm sure you donated thousands of dollars to President Bush. You are so transparent troll.
Though I don't like McCain that much, I sure don't want to toe the Communist line with Obama or Clinton.
Yeah... there are quite a few of those here pushing the liberal McCain.
They just signed up in the last few months. How long have you been here?
I think McCain is wise not to get into this and risk the media making him a bigot. Beleive me, the media would not let go of him if he didn’t condemn it. What’s funny is the rats find it offensive that his entire name was used...What are they afraid of? His name or the fact that the American people will associate Obama with, the likes of Udai and Qusai Hussein.
series and hugh
Then, in 04, when we Vietnam Veterans began a concentrated effort to expose John “The Snake” Kerry for the backstabbing, traitorous POS he was, he basically told us to get over it, keep quiet and go away.
He also dissed and attacked the Swift Boat Vets for truth as well as John O’Neil’s book (Unfit for Command) BEFORE it was even released.
Rather than support us (or at the very least stay neutral) he came to the defense of his good “bud,” Kerry, the very same Kerry who thru his anti-war actions and antics and his ilk, had been responsible for prolonging the war thereby, protracting the suffering he and the other POW’s endured by years.
When he did this, McPain lost what little respect he had from me and many other vets and regardless of his having endured much as a POW, this in of itself could not justify his actions.
At that time (and I wish I still had it) I wrote him a 4 page letter in which I expressed my disappointment and anger towards him and the one thing I remember well is that I told him that even if he had found it in his heart to forgive and forget what Kerry had done, I could not.
Thus regardless of who ends up in the White House, I cannot bring myself to vote for him. Like W, he would probably end up being strong on National Defense and taxes. However, like Bush, he will be a disastrous RINO, with regards to every other PC issue and will end up caving to the DHIMIS even more than W has-—which is quite a lot.
Thankfully, whether or not I vote or for who, here in Vermont, is wholly irrelevant, thus, I won’t lose any sleep and whatever the outcome, will learn to adapt, go to Church more often and pray a lot for our country—God Bless It!!
Oh my I have been outed !!
Get a grip cowgirl.
I just got a new name because my kid trashed the office and wrote all over everything.
So, I think its time for you to go chase those black helicopters you been hearing in your head.
This "Let Hillary Win" campaign is the worst idea of the millenium. She would do incalculable damage while you're waiting for 2012, and then she'd get re-elected. You'd be better off voting for McCain on the basis of his old age.
Hillary is The Worst Of The Worst, and I will rejoice if she loses her party's nomination.
His name is Barack [CENSORED} Obama, Jr. When he is sworn as President I wonder what name he will give. What name id he give when he was sworn in as a Senator.
? So you needed a new FR screenname? LOL. That's creative! (Did the dog eat your homework, too?)
So, I think its time for you to go chase those black helicopters you been hearing in your head.
Lots of helicopters around here.
Thank You, for your Service and Sacrifice For Our Nation.
That would be a valid reason. I'd like to hear him denounce the muslim religion openly.
The MSM certainly took Romney apart on his religion...so fair is fair!
Oh your so mean.
If you don’t have kids you can’t relate
Yes, he is supporting Hillary Clinton. The CNN report quotes him directly: “I’m joining Ann Coulter in supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton”.
I can’t think of a thing my kids could do that would require me to get a new FR screenname.
I think he should denounce it too!!
As for our President - calling Islam a religion of peace is quite a stretch in my opinion!
As for Obama - I have not heard him denouncing radical Islam...that's why the subject must be discussed.
There's a old Chinese proverb that says: Noob who signed up today has no room to accuse long standing FReepers of being DU pests.
Cunningham said and did nothing wrong, but this Rockefeller RINO hates conservatives and thinsk we have no choice but to vote for him. That is exaactly the attitude that will cause us not to.
I think it was '92, and what she said was even more disrespectful: "Poooor Geoooorge...he was born with a silver FOOT in his mouth." The MSM loved that and replayed it continually. She rode it to the Texas governorship.
