Man, it's getting pretty slim pickings for us Conservatives. First Thompson, now Romney. I guess McCain in a cakewalk the rest of the way, then probably a democratic president...*sigh*then we can see how all you liberals do with your "bi-partisan" politics... you'll all be worse than you think Bush ever could have been. It's a known fact you'll do ANYTHING to win an election, so the same msut go for when you actually win a race...
Governor Romney stated this as he was departing the campaign: "Frankly, in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror."
So for President we get either Monica's ex-boyfriend's wife, a guy whose name still gets confused with a terrorist, or a guy who probably can't believe he's actually making it as far as he is. Folks, one of these three people will be the next president of this country. I feel like Brad Pitt in the movie Troy, when he had beaten the best the enemy had to offer and shouted to the enemy horde "IS THERE NO ONE ELSE?"
Gern blansten seems unhappy. Those good conservatives who opposed Senator McCain, used telephone surveys to imply that McCain had been a POW traitor and that he had fathered a Vietnamese child during the Vietnam War. Some of those working against McCain, worked for George Bush. I say all of this, because it doesn't seem that either political party has the monopoly on truth and virtue. Also remember that George H. Bush's father (GW's grandfather if you are keeping score)was a typical New England Republican of his time. He was considered to be a moderate and held many positions today considered socially moderate or even liberal. He was involved with the American Birth Control League and served as the treasurer of the first national capital campaign of Planned Parenthood in 1947. Grandpa Bush was also an early supporter of the United Negro College Fund. Neither of GW's role models were ever accused of trying to screw his political opponents in the fashion that Senator McCain received it.
who cares as llong as hillary is not our next president. hilary is a pinko communist just like hanoi jane
I hope the most inexperienced candidate will lose the general election.
Mark my words.....If Hillary gets elected, there's going to be another "under the desk" scandal. Maybe this Clinton will pick a prettier girl this time.
Obama, Hillary and McCain are so similar politically that they could all fit into the same envelope. When I earlier said that the worst of the Republicans was better than the best of the Democrats, I didn't think I was making a prediction.At least Romney was spending his own money.Atticus: Was there relevance in your recitation of the Bush family tree? Is this yet another example of Bush-bashing to avoid discussing issues?
You just saw a video of McCain's running mate for vice-president. You may have also seen a new tactic in fundraising...
wordkyle, Atticus referenced gern's slam of the Democrats (...you'll do ANYTHING to win an election...) with factual information about W's 2000 attack of McCain (i.e. it appears the R's will also do ANYTHING to win an election). The reference to the Bush tree also provides context and comparision with past moderates within the Republican party and President-Elect McCain. Try to keep up.If you truly believe that Obama, Hillary and McCain are all the same, I challenge you to vote for Obama given the chance. Of course, even if you did you know it wouldn't matter b/c Texas will be red.
Raging Right WingNUT Religicans are such POMPOUS ASSES the majority of them are incapable of telling the difference between a TRUE Republican like McCain and a Marxist like Obama and a Socialist like Clinton.The RELIGICANS are soooo busy bashing McCain for not kissing their asses they missed Obama, yet again, declaring his Marxist agenda in his South Carolina victory speech. The creed of the Communist Manifesto is "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" followed by "that out of many we are one ... a shared sacrifice and shared prosperity." was ever so carefully stated in Obama's speech when he said "The change we seek has always required great struggle and sacrifice. And so this is a battle in our own hearts and minds about what kind of country we want and how hard we’re willing to work for it." History has proven, coerced self-sacrifice causes society to self-destruct, and that is exactly what Obama is advocating. I need not site references to substantiate my allegation that Hillary Clinton is a Socialist. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence who has heard ANYTHING she spouts regarding Socialized Medicine is aware of her Socialist ideals.NEWSFLASH!Socialism always fails; capitalism (without government interference) ALWAYS succeeds.John McCain is a REPUBLICAN not a RELIGICAN.
mzchief:In spite of all your capital letter blathering, you fail to miss the point - all the while taking yet another shot at Christians and religion in general. Tsk, tsk, such predictability.My original post - which you might have missed because it didn't have thousands of all caps letters - didn't say one word about McCain and his religion. That's you and your stunted hatred of Christianity foaming at the mouth again. My take on McCain is that he has abandoned many of the CONSERVATIVE (did you catch that word?) principles, save for perhaps the "strong military".It's getting to the point where your babbling is about as entertaining as Ken Hughes' idiotic rambling in the Messenger.
Mzchef, John McCain is a Republican? Thanks for the laugh. That was better than Barry's pick me ups. ROFL.
The best line of the day was provided by Rush. Commenting on how Hitlary's campaign intern staffers were working for free, "I wonder if she is providing them with health coverage?" It must suck to have to dip into the millions that Slick Hillbilly got from Arab interest under the table money.
Ron Paul just became the only true Conservative Republican left in the race.
mzchief - Well stated!
Well, THIS comment site has devolved into commenters bashing commenters instead of talking about the issue. My only concern about Romney was this "when was the last time he pumped his own gas, or went to the grocery store to buy his family's groceries"? At least Huckabee has probably done it within living memory.
Mzchef, well stated but not well thought out.
To Gern Blansten...My 3:39 comment was NOT directed as commentary or rebuttal to any comment you made prior to my 3:39 comment.Incidentally, Einstein, when you tell someone "you fail to miss the point" you are telling them they GET IT.Stupid looks good on you, either you come by it naturally or have spent YEARS nurturing your STUPIDITY. Only a fool argues with an idiot which is why I will NOT respond to any of the "points" in your comments.In light having further examined the content of your text there is a chance you are not fluent in English. If you are indeed a non-native English speaker, please accept my apology for mocking your poor grammar and vocabulary.
I am 45 years old and for the first time in my life I honestly don't know if there's any reason to vote,or at the very least I'll be casting my vote to help keep someone out rather than help bring someone I believe in into office. I'll have to decide who's the evil of two lessers.
5:11, Those are pretty high standards you set for picking a President. At least Romney knows how to run a business and become succesful. Can you say that about McCain? He never has had a job other than government jobs. I'm pretty sure he hasn't pumped his own gas in quite awhile. Just remember when you pull the lever for McCain, you are voting for someone that entertained the idea of running as John F'ing Kerry's VP. With McCain you get a 3fer(McClain, Clinton and OreoBammy)
5:17 - What the hell does that mean?
mzchief:Yep, you got me. I failed to go back and check the grammar in my post. Thank goodness I have you to correct my grammar. I feel emotionally crippled.Maybe I need to quit blogging. Maybe I need to leave it to the smart people like you, that know everything and can correct every little mistake made by us nonperfect peons.Then again..."With my last breath, I spit at thee."Yep, I've figured you out. You're Ken Hughes...
By the way, mzchief:It's "in light OF having further examined..."geez, correct your posts, sometime, will ya?and to borrow one of your pet phrases...lol@YOUlove,gern
OMG...MZ's comment has made me realize that I'm a Religatarian... I would vote Obama over McCain or Hilary. We either implode now or forever show our arse... I have enough food, water and ammunition for a year...good luck!
MzCreep is so smart, she even knows why Natalie Holloway got killed.
The best thing about Clinton or Osama, uh, I mean Obama getting elected is that it will guarantee a conservative Republican in four years. McCain is a Democrat. From what I have read, I don't think he has what it takes to call the shots well enough to protect us. I guess it's going to take another attack on our soil to make you people understand what we are up against.McCain has already come out against the water boarding.CIA director Michael Hayden told the Senators that, since 9/11, the agency had used waterboarding exactly three times in order to get information. The men involved were all high ranking al-Qaeda and, according to the CIA, they all gave up information that prevented terror attacks that could have killed thousands.Also, the director of national intelligence, Mike McConnell, told the Senators that al-Qaeda is being protected inside Pakistan and is currently training agents to infiltrate the United States with the purpose of killing civilians.I happen to believe that our military and government intelligence agencies should be free to use necessary means against foreign agents to get information necessary to protect this country. I want someone with the guts to protect my family and me from enemies who want to destroy us. Currently, there does not appear to be a candidate who can address this issue.
I suspect a rigged election between McCain & Huckabee, especially after the West Virginia rip-off. If McCain makes Huckabee his running mate then that will seal my suspicion.
Germ Blowhard, Mzchief didn't say anything about Christians. I think she was making the point that politics shouldn't be about religion. You do know there are countries that allow religion to play a major role in politics. They're called theocracies. Most of them are Muslim countries. Since you like religion in your politics maybe you should move to one of those countries. You're probably like all the other right wingnut jobs and it's not religion you like in your politics you just like Christianity in your politics.

The earlier posts, including my posts, had nothing to do with religion. That was all in her little hate-filled mind.2. You, sir/madam, don't know anything about me, what I like in politics or don't like in politics. If you have a point, make it in a mature manner if you can, without drinking the mzchief kool-aid. Think on your own every once in a while.3. and no, I have no interest in moving to one of those "other" countries. In fact, I want our military to keep those troublemakers "over there" as opposed to being in my backyard. Since you so obviously disagree with all the "right-wing nut jobs" who want a strong military presence (that mean, dumb ol' Bush again, huh), you probably want to invite the muslims over here for a Coke and some coffee cake.
and here's another thing for all you libs:It's ironic that there's enough of a conservative presence on this blog that you can't just shout people down and they go crawling away, huh? I know, I know, you just think it's wordkyle and his little minions, but in fact, it isn't. It's SANE people who think clearly and who aren't going to let you liberal bozos ruin our country (or at least, run us off this blog)!Have at thee, scoundrels!
HOLY CRAP!!!!No one argued the lesbian inference toward Hillary!
10:10---probably because that form of childish dialogue isn't worth comment.
"It's ironic that there's enough of a conservative presence on this blog that you can't just shout people down and they go crawling away, huh?"congratualtions on your conservative circle-jerk.
