Palin and McCain will be at a rally and picnic in Tucson on March 26, followed the next day by a rally in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa.

    GOP candidate promotes working with Europe on climate change, but only wants to 'encourage' involvement of 'rest of the world.' BY DAN GAINOR Presumptive GOP presidential nominee John McCain is using the idea of global togetherness to promote “a cap-and-trade system” to battle climate change. He said “Americans and Europeans need to get serious about substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the coming years or we will hand over a much-diminished world to our grandchildren.” According to the Arizona senator, whose opinion column appeared in the March 19 Financial Times, the United States needs to work with Europe to create...
  • Former McCain spokesperson joins Gore’s (Alliance for Climate Protection) team

    Here’s a curious development for you: Brian Rogers, spokesperson for John McCain’s presidential campaign last year, is now working for Al Gore. Rogers sent an email dispatch on Friday announcing his new job as research director for Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection. In the email, Rogers said he will be “working on the Repower America campaign to pass comprehensive energy and climate change legislation.” On the campaign trail last year, Rogers’ shining moments included attacking Barack Obama for opposing increased domestic oil and gas production, arguing that Obama lived in “a frickin’ mansion” that was “bought in a shady deal...

    It's not just income taxes that might trash the dreams of Joe the Plumber. Ready or not, Joe and the rest of us are also about to get mugged by the commissars of climate change. On this, I've got a bipartisan beef, since both John McCain and Barack Obama have bought into the panicked Al Gore storyline that the earth has a man-made "fever." Both candidates are promising to meet it with dramatic and costly new forms of government control. This comes even as Europe, after its fling with the Kyoto treaty, is backing off from grand pledges to cut...

    You know who you are. You're the one posting stupid comments about what a loser Johnny is. You're the one getting on the political chat shows and telling everyone that you think Obama is super great and that he's going to win! Yeay! And your supposed to be a conservative. Why don't you shut up! I'm talking to all the whiners who piled on and joined the Chris Matthews bandwagon and declared Johnny an old man and a big dull loser. He did fine last night. He was the boss on foreign policy. He's never been a dazzling public speaker...

    John McCain has earned a part of his maverick reputation by supporting strong and purposeful environmental policy that protects our common resources and public land. His history of advancing change within his own party makes him the best presidential choice for protecting the Earth. As an environmental entrepreneur and co-chairman of McCain's Environmental Coalition in Washington, I can attest that his leadership is inspiring a new generation of Republicans to revisit our philosophical roots as conservationist in the tradition of Teddy Roosevelt.

    Dear Freepers We are going to win the Presidency this November. Do not be fooled by the biased media polls because they have done the same thing in 2004 and 2000 but neither Gore nor Kerry became Presidents. We are going to win because at the end a defeatist, a socialist, and a left wing liberal like Barack Obama will not be elected President. We are going to win because at the end Barack Obama who voted to cut the funding for our brave troops in the battlefield, who voted against the surge, who voted against victory, and who voted...

    He said he would involve former Vice President Al Gore in efforts to address the issue. "I would tap him, I would tap people who have been involved in these issues for many years." McCain noted that he disagreed with the Nobel Peace Prize winner about nuclear energy but added, "I have great respect for Al Gore."

    Republican Sen. John McCain, engaged in increasingly sharp attacks on rival Barack Obama, pledged that if elected president, he would work closely with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, praising her as an effective leader and an "inspiration to millions of Americans." "I respect Speaker Pelosi. I think she's one of the great American success stories," McCain said during an interview with The Chronicle prior to a fundraiser at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. "We talk about (New York Sen.) Hillary Clinton and her inspiration to millions of Americans. Speaker Pelosi has been an inspiration as well" in a role...

    Many conservatives realistic enough to know there will never be "another Reagan" nevertheless wish at least for another Barry Goldwater. They don't realize that we already have one. His name is John McCain. {snip} AS WITH GOLDWATER, so with McCain. Irascible, iconoclastic, sometimes a bit profane, always his own man and nobody else's, McCain is a curmudgeon's curmudgeon -- but still with much to offer his country. We all know, of course, why so many of us are so often so angry with McCain -- his sometimes bizarre heresies from conservatism, his insulting language and hair-trigger temper toward conservatives who...

    think I know how a Christian convert feels in Saudi Arabia. When I worked for the House Republican leadership during the 2000 presidential primary, I voted for John McCain. I was then-House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s spokesman at the time, and while he had his issues with McCain’s chief rival, George W. Bush, it was clear that Bush was his choice. Bush also had the backing of the rest of the House Republican leadership. On the day of the 2000 New Hampshire primary, we had a leadership meeting in the speaker’s office. Rumors were rife that Bush was getting his derrière...

    ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain delivered the following remarks as prepared for delivery at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, in Columbus, OH, today at 10:00 a.m. EDT: Thank you. The hectic but repetitive routine of presidential campaigns often seems to consist entirely of back and forth charges between candidates, punctuated by photo ops, debates and the occasional policy speech, followed by another barrage of accusations and counter accusations, formulated into the soundbites preferred by cable news producers. It is a little hypocritical for candidates or reporters to criticize these deficiencies. They are our creation. Campaigns and the media...

    There once was a time where liberal men were tough and would fight for their positions. Think FDR standing up to Hitler and Hirohito, JFK staring down Khrushchev or even LBJ with the creeping communism of Soviet Russia. Juxtapose that with what we have today. We have Obama who whines so incessantly as to seem like more of a woman than Hillary. We have potential VP nominee John Edwards sending his cancer-stricken wife out to fight his battles as well. These are the faces of the liberal movement today. The opposition throws statements they've made back in their faces and...
  • McCain on the Issues - Ethics Reform

    Lobbying & Ethics Reform Seal the Pork Barrel Among the most glaring abuses in Washington is the willful setting aside of taxpayer dollars for the pet projects of special interests, often through last minute additions to appropriations bills. Pork barrel spending is an insult to taxpayers, a waste of public resources, and an abdication of our leaders' responsibility to be good and honorable stewards of the public treasury, for the benefit of all Americans, not just a few. Too often it appears that elected leaders use the treasury as a campaign kitty, channeling taxpayer dollars for pet projects to preserve...

    If Republicans are going to be stampeded by phony environmental alarms and propose terrible public policies in the name of these scams, what the hell do we need Democrats for? America is so far gone in the global warming superstition that the Republican candidate for president (the REPUBLICAN!) is proposing a Soviet scheme to take decisions about energy use out of the private sector where they belong and turn them over to politicians and bureaucrats. If there's a quicker way to make America into a Third World nation, pray tell me what it is.

    Barack Obama and John McCain are ignoring Hillary Clinton's decisive win in the West Virginia primary on Tuesday and are instead campaigning against each other. In order to prevail in the general election, the presumptive Republican nominee, McCain, must unveil a bold and inspiring platform. The likely Democratic nominee, Mr. Obama, is portraying Mr. McCain as an honorable man of "the past" who will provide a third Bush term. In contrast, Mr. McCain is trying to distinguish himself from the Republican brand — a brand which is tied to a president whose popularity ratings are at an all-time low and...

    This week John McCain proclaimed the need to solve global warming using economic principles. George W. Bush declared that global warming has been proven. In fact, it seems like the mindless, irrational, Global Warming belief is a characteristic of all the RINOs. I am getting rather annoyed by the mindless caving to the liberal lies. In fact, all who promote the need to solve global warming are, in my humble opinion, hoodwinked opportunists. There is no science of cause and effect that runs from human activity to increased temperature. The so called increased temperature is highly suspect. And the cause...

    NORTH BEND, Wash. — Senator John McCain intensified his criticism of President Bush and the administration’s environmental polices on Tuesday, taking a walk in the cold, rain-drenched foothills of the Cascade Mountains and asserting that in the effort to stem climate change, “America can lead and not obstruct.” At an outdoor news conference in the Cedar River Watershed east of Seattle, Mr. McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, declared that “the president and I have disagreed on this issue for many years — it isn’t a recent disagreement.” He added, “There is a longstanding, significant, deep, strong difference on this...

    Senator McCain gave a speech in Portland, Oregon Monday reiterating and explaining his longstanding support for a “cap-and-trade” approach to global warming. He proposes that the government require reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions but allow companies to trade emissions credits, supposedly creating an efficient, market-based distribution of the regulatory burden. Support for this policy is the biggest mistake his campaign has made so far. Early in this speech, Sen. McCain ran through a litany of woes that we can expect from global warming: “reduced water supplies, more forest fires than in previous decades, changes in crop production, more heat waves afflicting...
