    McCain is basically Democrat light having opposed torture, Bush tax cuts, the religious right and supports stopping Global Warming etc. So even if he wins I'm not worried. I want Obama to win but won't cry if he loses to the guy who says his hero is the Progressive President Teddy Roosvelt.

    Why didn't GOP nominate a Conservative?

    Because the Republican party abandoned conservatism when Ronald Reagan was elected.

    In favor of radical right wing extremism? Probably.

    Lord but you guys are bright. I can't do much but stare in amazement at such a statement.

    No fukkin' shit, sherlock. WTF do you think conservatives have been bitching about? Yet every damned one of you loopy-left types has been on here mindlessly ascribing our support to McGrampa.

    The concept that any one of us that vote for him will be the usual choosing the lesser of two evils doesn't seem to click, and it sure as Hell doesn't mean anyone likes the old coot. It just means he's more tolerable than Obama.

    Kind of like the Democrats abandoned their minds when Jimmy Carter was elected.

    oh puleeze... Bill Clinton was part of the DLC... MODERATE DEMS... It was the repubs who got dragged to the right when the repub leadership moved from the northeast to the south and west.

    As I've said, a democrat couldn't even get nominated now being as far to the left as Richard Nixon.

    How's that for absurd?

    Are there radical leftwingers? Yeppers... absolutely.. .positively... but none are running for president. Now if Kucinich or Dean (both of whom I can't stand) made it... another subject altogether.

    And, frankly, as I've also repeatedly said.. if McCain now were McCain 2000 instead of McCain 2008, I'd vote for him myself. But he's not... and I'm not.

    You must have a BIG disconnect between your eyeballs and brain if you think "Jimmy Carter" says "Bill Clinton," or "Richard Nixon."

    You are correct about repeating a few things ... that are bullshit. Carter redefined BOTH parties when he pulled the rug out from under the moderate liberals' feet.

    Your idea of what a radical leftwinger is is based on your limited, partisan vision. Obama is a radical leftwinger, period. Although, I note with some satisfaction he is doing the same thing Clinton had to in 92 -- pretend to be a moderate and fall into the fold in order to pander to the moderates.

    Your sticking to your story on Nixon just goes to show your unwillingness to learn. Nixon was hardly far-left. He'd easily be elected as a Republican nowadays, but y'all'd have him labelled as Satan.

    Ah-h-h...

    ...the difference a VP announcement can make. Now OJ Simpleton sees McCain as the single biggest threat.

    hee-hee! Good times.
