John Rich debuts “Raisin’ McCain”
Fox News ^ | August 1,2008 | Mosheh Oinounou

Posted on 08/01/2008 7:28:54 PM PDT by AmericanMade1776

PANAMA CITY, FL — Country Music star John Rich premiered a new song Friday dedicated to Sen. John McCain at a rally for the GOP presumptive nominee on the Florida Panhandle.

At a “Country First” (get it?) concert, one of the two stars of Big and Rich performed “Raisin’ McCain” as McCain was arriving for a brief rally in Panama City. The song focuses on the Vietnam veteran’s time as a POW and refers to him as a “a real man with an American plan.” (Full lyrics after jump)

“Well we’re all just raisin’ McCain. Everywhere across the USA. You can get on the train or get out of the way. We’re all just raisin’ McCain,” the chorus goes. While it is not likely to takeover the charts like Big and Rich’s recent hit, “Save a horse, ride a cowboy,” the nearly 500 person crowd danced along to the hit. Rich performed the song solo though as his musical partner, Big Kenny, is an Obama supporter. (Video of the event on the link provided)

You are doing an AWESOME of keeping Hildy informed. Keep up the good work.

Ah, a new FR group: the McCain Informers.

Interesting.

Frightening in its implications, but interesting in a clinical sort of way.

Hey now.. let’s see I too am pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America, and so is Hildy.

You EternalViliglance are the one who is helping Obama to win... Obama who stands for liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc...

And quit hiding behind Jim Robinson.. Hildy and I are not going to rough you up too much, if your man Obama wins, we are just going to remind you of it everyday of your Freeper life.

Thank you, I just got wind of Hildy's list today, and I intend to find the culprits who are helping to get Obama to the White House.

Sean Hannity played Rich's song at the bottom of his last hour today...and while I'm no raving fan of Country music, the song is much nicer than what Rapper Ludacris has to offer.

Talk about night and day!

I am sending your name to Hildy, she is making a list of all you freepers who are not going to vote for McCain, so if parchance Obama should get to the White House, we will know whose butt to kick when you grumble later. Be forewarned.

Sounds like a threat to me. Why don't you explain to everyone just what this means?

I guess if you cannot argue with logic, then physical threats or threats of censorship will do just as well.

“NIXONIAN??” Can you be any more dramatic??? I’m just making a list of all those who say they won’t vote for mccain. So then, when they’re back here next year bitching and moaning about President Obama, we’ll know they have no right to do so. What’s NIXONIAN about that? Intimidation? THIS IS A FREAKING WEBSITE...I CANNOT DO ANYTHING TO YOU. Geez..you of all people. I’m disappointed.

"I not only know what a Conservative Looks like, but I know what an Obama presidency would mean for this country..."

Not to get all up in the middle of yall's squabble, but this isn't really a way to win someone to your side. "Vote for Candidate A because he isn't Candidate B" isn't a really solid argument. Some people have that political line in the sand and for Eternal Vigilance, McCain has crossed that line. If you really want him to vote for McCain you need get him to move his line with reason, not threats.

I laugh at liberals like you who compromised away any principles you might have had years ago, and then constantly blame those who won’t compromise for the inevitable results of your own compromise.

If a liberal like Obama or McCain wins the presidency it will be because of the liberals who voted FOR them, not the conservatives who would not.

Capiche?

I simply said that if and when there is a President Obama, those people would have no right to bitch and moan here on FreeRepublic. That’s it. THere is no THREAT. I’m 5’2” and weigh 120 lbs.

Fine, Hildy. That sounds more civil. No harm—no foul.

But I reserve the right to complain about whomever is the next President if I want to, regardless of who I vote for or don’t vote for.

If this becomes HildyRepublic.com, you set the rules of the discussion.

Since it is not, you don’t get to do that.

I’m not a McCain fan but I’m starting to get excited about him. He is really going full force after Obama. I’m also encouraged that the Republicans in Congress caused chaos today. Here’s hoping that the Republicans are starting to wake up.

I just looked at your candidate for President .. Alan Keyes

“Sacramento, CA - July 6, 2008

In their biennial convention held on July 5, 2008, in Sacramento, California, the American Independent Party nominated a slate of Electors pledged to Alan Keyes for President. This nomination followed the June 27, 2008, affiliation of the American Independent Party with America’s Independent Party “
http://www.aipca.org/

Your candidate Alan Keyes could not even beat Obama in the race forU.S. Senate in Illinois in 2004.
