    The Washington Times?? lol... Rev Moon's paper??/ puleeze...


    Although 8 years ago, i'd have probably agreed with the assessment. given his current stated desire to continue 88% of bush's policies, and his choice of the wingnut sarah palin, i'm kind of figuring those days are past.

    I wonder if a review of your posts here would indicate you ever gave a shit about bipartisanship, or whether they would reveal that you vote a straight republican ticket and are a hyper partisan GOP supporter?

    Yea, but all those issues McCain worked with Democrats on, he has probably flip flopped on every one of those positions.

    Your story neglects to point that out.

    How does he feel about those bills now? Isn't there even a bill he sponsored that HE HIMSELF wouldn't even sign today?

    Campaign finance reform. HA!! He reniged on that one. :eusa_liar:

    Man, I sure did strike a nerve... and all I did was point out that McCain works with both parties and you people freak out... and of course can't provide anything that Obama has done with Republicans...big suprise...

    I hope you guys are on some sort of blood pressure medicine because your anger is going to kill you...literally...

    If you people had valid responses and could hold a decent conversation the silent majority would respoect you more but when you fly off the handle with opinions like this do you really expect anyone to like you guys? I thought liberals cared about what people thought of them... Once again, the people who fight for tolerance are the most intolerant people.... it's true..

    I was a pretty big McCain supporter in 2000 over Bush.. was not to be though...

    He's not AS MUCH the maverick he was, and I have disagreed with him more in the past few years than I did in the past... but since he is the most centrist of the 2 candidates, BY FAR, he is my ultimate choice in this election over the most radically polarized person in the entire senate in Obama... I may not agree with McCain during a McCain presidency as I would like, but I would agree with Obama on only the most rare of occasions...

    He has reached across the aisle a lot, in the past, which is why I had considered voting for him, especially if Hillary had won.

    But, his pick of Palin showed a move so far right, and so not in the interest of this country (you can see russia from Alaska!) that he basically squelched a lot of his bipartisan credentials.

    I expect he'll win and I'll be watching to see how he works with the congress. It could be OK, or he might continue to pander to the far right.
