McCain and Hillary's love child will be the end of conservatism as we know it
By just looking at the pictures above, I feel more warmth between these two characters than I do between Bill and Hillary.
The fact is, having these two run against one another would be the liberals dream come true!
It sickened me to hear McCain say that Mitt is a manager and McCain the true leader. Well, other than being one vote in one hundred as a united states senator, where has McCain lead? Answer: McCain-Feingold, McCain-Kennedy and as a the lead member of the gang of 14. The few times that McCain has lead, he has led as a liberal!
Iraq? McCain was right to follow Bush and Gen. Petraeus. The surge in Iraq would have happened whether or not McCain supported it! We were happy to have McCain's support (for once) but the surge would have been implemented with or without him! I am tired of hearing McCain take credit for the idea! He was one vote in one hundred...and it would have happened without him.
McCain called Rummy the "worst secretary of defense in US history"! And that was after Bush had accepted his resignation. Secretary Rumsfeld served his country well and defeated the Saddam regime in what only took a few days. McCain kicked Rummy when he was down for his own personal ambitions.
The whole P.O.W. thing: I admire anyone who has served our country and risked their life to defend America. There have been hundreds of thousands who have made that risk and hundreds of thousands who have made the ultimate sacrifice. But it is the years that followed his release as a POW that should be evaluated as to whether or not he is the most fit to be commander in chief. Just because someone has been taken prisoner, doesn't make that person most fit to be a surgeon, or a mechanic, or a NASA engineer. So why does being taken as a POW make you ready to be the president?
It is McCain's record as senator that should be weighted out...and that record is one of opposing conservatives and aligning with democrats. Just ask Liberman and Clinton about his voting record!
