You heard it right here, as if any of you care, here in the land of left-wing bliss. I made the decision Thursday, before hearing various Romney endorsements on Friday. Several polls indicate a landslide for McCain, with Super Tuesday essentially sealing the nomination for him, but we'll see. That's still three days away. I'll know Tuesday if voting at next Saturday's Kansas Republican caucus will even matter. <br><br>GBR (OFI)
Makes perfect sense to me considering the choices you have left standing, I don't understand how conservatives can support McCain. So how did McCain get this far ahead (please don't blame the "liberal media")? But what happens in the most likely scenario that McCain wins the primaries? Draft Newt?<br><br>
Huckleberry says that Romney acheived a late political puberty because he kept shifting his policies to reflect the electorate he faced--very "liberal" in MA, now very "conservative." Huckster has his own reasons for saying all this, of course, but isn't he right? I ask seriously . . . how do conservatives respond to the charge that The Catcher is a political opportunist?<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>here in the land of left-wing bliss.<p><hr></blockquote><p>If you think this is liberal bliss than I can see that you might be a bit wide right of McCain. As a left wing liberal I would appreciate your vote for Romney although I fear he has no chance to be nominated. Romney against any Democrat would lose even if the Dem was Kucinich and he promised a UFO in every garage.<br><br>An awake conservative with a pulse cannot vote for McCain so I see your quandary. I am flabbergasted that McCain is in the lead running on a "I'll keep our boys in Iraq forever but otherwise I am a liberal" platform. It's some kind of weird Vietnam flashback payback thing going on. If McCain stays in Iraq and "wins" after 8 more years this would somehow validate the notion that all those anti-war liberals lost Vietnam back in 1969.<br><br>Weird stuff. McCain crazy I guess sells to the Republicans who are still looking for WMD and do not want to admit that they were as wrong as wrong can be supporting the invasion of Iraq. I guess it would help them sleep at night if they knew McCain was still fighting that fight. Why stop at three trillion total cost and 4,000 US soldiers dead (that landmark reached soon)?<br><br>Weird stuff. The Republican party is suffering from cognitive dissonance. The cure is to split off a real conservative party with real conservative values from the eight headed Hydra which has morphed out of the elephant.<br><br>Huckabee is out of the picture for you? He has been touted as too liberal but he really isn't. And I loved his response in the debates about the 150 billion dollar economy stimulus package. He said why give every family 600 bucks when it is going to go straight to China for order for one more HDTV screen or computer? China sure likes buying the debt that then comes right back to their country in the way of orders for more toys. Huckabees said a better idea would be to add two more lanes to I95 from Bangor to Miami. A brilliant idea. Those dollars would churn over three times before they went to China. A road worker gets paid and takes his family to Applebees and that waitress gets paid and buys some new shoes from ... China.<br><br>
And welcome Globalrolf to the soapbox at Macminute. You are right it has become a bit too liberal in here. We used to have some pretty decent cat fights in here a long time ago but two things happened.<br>1) Bush supporters became very embarrassed about their choices in life.<br>2) Some sock puppets were exposed. There were actually about 30 right wing sock puppets exposed as socks controlled by only three people. Pretty weird. After the exposure you could go back in history and see that they were even arguing with themselves. Not the other two, with the other hand! Talk about a Strawman argument. More like masturbating with less pleasant results. Everyone was a bit creeped out and they were embarrassed to post for sometime and now only do so very meekly. Since if they posted anything strident what puppet out of thirty would you really call them?<br><br>Anyway, welcome to the soapbox. With mojo here fighting the good fight you do have company. You would be surprised really about what even a yellow dog Democrat like me would agree upon. I will poke fun at McCain and Romney and you can poke fun at Obama and Hillary. You can call Barack by his middle name Hussein and Senator Clinton is Billary. But for the most part issues are spoken here. I did go overboard with the story about Seamus pooping all over Mitt's car but it is what it is.<br><br>Could you imagine your 13 years old with your dog on the roof and your stuffed in the back of a station wagon and the dog is pooping loose stool down the back window? And your dad just gets out and hoses the dog off and keeps going?<br><br>You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but unfortunately you can't pick your parents.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
