    That how you see it? Fine. Then DO tell what the Republican principles are this week ...

    I don't seem to be able to find "Republican" listed as a political ideology though.

    Okay, I can buy this one. However, you don't abandon a principle nor rename it because someone attempts to hijack it. Neocons are what they are.

    And a neocon is exactly what McCain represents to me.

    I think he might make a pretty savvy president.

    At least he'll talk....Bush has driven me nuts with the way he refuses to address certain issues because he won't get in the mud.

    I mean, you don't have to get in the mud to get the support of the people when they're hearing crap about you. You just have to have a killer speech writer.

    Reagan knew that. He was always classy, but he NEVER just let things slide.

    HOpefully, McCain can pull some of that out of his butt. I'm not holding my breath, though. Haven't seen anything spectacular yet.

    Gonna have to agree to disagree. Sorry, but I think McCain will surprise you.

    Platforms are written, not principles.

    One of the strongest things MCcain has going for him is his pit bull attitude when it comes to fiscal responsiblity. When so many Republicans and Democrats in Congress were spending billions of dollars on their own pet projects(earmarks), Mccain spent nothing. Yes I do wish he had more of a tougher position on illegals, but I will say this is light years ahead of Obama and Clinton.
