Which Nomination Does McCain Want?

by Mike on February 22, 2007

Former Republican frontrunner John McCain has joined forces with his old friend Ted Kennedy in an attempt to push their illegal alien amnesty bill.  Michael Graham’s take on one aspect of the “improved” legislation is definitely worth a read.

Sometimes I wonder if McCain realizes he is running in the wrong primary.  Well, at least you can’t accuse him of pandering.

The irony is that there is a rumor that Leiberman may be considering joining the GOP!

Leiberman is the one Dem that I actually like and respect. I say welcome aboard sir.

While I’m not a fan of the ‘big tent’ in the Republican Party, which would welcome Lieberman into the Republican Party, I would not have a problem with it because his flip to the good side will give the Republicans a more power and influence in the Senate. There is no such thing anymore as a Scoop Jackson Democrat, so Lieberman is not even welcome in his party anymore.

I agree with Mike’s point about McCain completely. On top of all this, John McCain has been there at every moment of Bush’s presidency to make life difficult for Dubya and the Republicans in general:
–He was Mr. “Gang of 14″ back in the judicial nominee days just to turn the word “majority” from 40 in the Senate to 14. Thanks John.
–He’s been critical of Iraq the moment the press and the polls said he should be. Thanks John.
–He lost the 2000 Election primary and pushed through the insidious “Incumbancy Protection Act of 2002″ I mean campaign finance reform. Thanks John for making the “527″ such a fixture of American politics.
–He jumped on the Katrina’s the federal gov’t fault bandwagon. Thanks John.
–He was “meh” on Bush so much in 2004 that he weasled his way into a major speaker slot at the RNC convention and still seemed reluctant to be there. Thanks John?

In short: he’s a weasle, a typically shrewd politician, and a maverick who needs to run in Joe Lieberman’s party/non-party, not the Republican Party. I’m just excited that I get to vote against him again in 2008!

Stick a fork in McCain, for he is done. After the November 2006 debacle, I was quite fearful that the Republican’s ‘let’s make nice with the Democrats’ mantra would eventually lead to his nomination. While there are times the Republicans still embrace this ‘can’t we all just get along/make nice/new tone’ garbage, I think it is safe to say that many in the party have rejected McCain’s backstabbing and selfish actions. Ryan has clearly illustrated his backstabbing nature, and I say he’s also selfish because he is willing to cut down his own for his own positive exposure on and by the left wing Sunday talk shows. I truly believe that giving him the nomination would clinch it for any Democrat, including her thighness. Even though they (liberals) all make nice to him when he bashes his own, it is my belief that they have compiled an extreme dossier on him and are waiting to use it…and I’m not even talking about his lack of intellect issue (he graduated 5th from the bottom at Annapolis)…while I have no proof, my gut tells me they’ve got bigger stuff. When McCain finally drops out of this race, it will be a good day for Republicans.
