It could get him into trouble with Republicans, of course,

It already has!

Oh God! I’m in the energy industry and I am really, really, really, gonna have to hold my nose to vote for this guy. Unfortunately having Obama in the Whitehouse is NOT an option.

"John McCain is going to be doing more of these themed tours of America, and one of them is going to be on energy and global climate change. It could get him into trouble with Republicans, of course, and with the base, who don't think there is much climate change going on, but it is something that he's very passionate about and he's going to be talking about it."

In many cases when passion comes in to play logic gets lost in the emotional turmoil.

It’s really sad that the GOP thinks it can force its once faithful base to vote for a Democrat who puts an “R” after his name. No, thanks, I’ll just pass on the POTUS portion of the touch screen.

I’m not making any more of these bad choices. I can see your dilemma but we’ve been hosed too long. Take a look at the Constitution and Libertarian Parties.

He is quite old.

Could possibly be his senility is finally too advanced to hide anymore.

"I just DARE you not to vote for me." - John McCain to the Republican Base.

When a Democrat runs against a Democrat, a Democrat wins EVERY time.

My impression is that he wants to win very much, but that he’s hampered by a strong sense of self-righteousness that makes him dismissive of criticism and disagreement, coupled with a significant judgment problem. The only candidate who would have been worse, IMO, is Giuliani.

Worth repeating. Like someone said, since 1988 it's been voting for the lesser of two evils. That sure does get old,old,old. The lessers are getting less and the evils are getting eviler (if there is such a word).

Me too. The Constitution and Libertarian Parties are each better than the current Republican Party but I don’t agree with them 100% either. Lou Dobbs or Glenn Beck for President?

Poor McCain! He just can't help but blatantly express his Marxist beliefs when suppression would be much more prudent. I love it when he gives me ammunition to fire back at the McCainics. I don't know if McCain is an idiot or he just can't resist an opportunity to stick it in the eye of conservatives. Either way, I relish an opportunity to attack the McCainiacs and their fellow rinos with another leftist McInsane revelation.

While I admit this is appalling ... maybe this is a clever move.

If he uses concern for “global warming” as an excuse to ramp up construction of nuclear power facilities maybe this isn’t a bad thing.

He’s already said that he won’t sign on to any global warming treaty unless China and India are on board - which ain’t ever going to happen.

Maybe there is a CHANCE that this is for show, to make a symbolic, meaningless gesture to dim-witted eco swing voters who CARE about the VIRONMENT without having any real negative effects; indeed if we get more nuke power plants built it could be a net positive!

This is McCain (from This Week, February 17, 2008) [emphasis added]:
STEPHANOPOULOS: How about on the issue of climate change? Because you and Sen. [Joe] Lieberman [I-Conn.] have come out for a bill which would have mandatory reductions in greenhouse gases.

MCCAIN: Gradual reductions, yes.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But they are mandatory.

MCCAIN: Yes.


STEPHANOPOULOS: Are you sticking by that?

MCCAIN: What I mean by that is that it's cap-and-trade, that there will be incentives for people to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It's a free-market approach. The Europeans are using it now. We did it in the case of addressing acid rain -- look, if we do that, we stimulate green technologies. I have great faith in the American industry. General Electric, the world's largest corporation, has announced they're dedicated to green technologies. This will be profit-making business.

It won't cost the American taxpayer. It will make profits, because we'll move forward with the innovation and ability of American industry to address this issue.
No wonder McCain admits he doesn't know much about economics. Who does he think is going to pay for GE making all that profit, since he says it isn't the American taxpayer? Will President McCain just mandate that profits will henceforth grow on trees? Where is the profit from those mandated fluorescent bulbs coming from? Is McCain secretly suggesting he will set up a program to provide free fluorescent bulbs to the American people, since he says "It won't cost the American taxpayer"?

[Hint, JohnnyMc: Consumers. And a majority of consumers are also taxpayers. So, all that corporate profit will cost the taxpayers.]

It's the corrupt "Two-Party Cartel". The elites have their pick as they have nominated theirs & the sheeple will vote 95% in this cartel. I'm with ya - This lib (R) doesn't deserve my vote & natually the socialist/communist nominee won't get zilch. If you think it's bad this time around just watch in 20012.

So I think it’s not so good.
