A great read for real conservatives:
I dont buy it. There are not enough organized committed dedicated activist conservatives to make a difference. If they are not careful, then they will split the ticket, screw up and help get a Democrat elected. Play it safe and stick with McCain to prevent getting a Democrat.
I thought you were supposed to be a "moderate". Why the concern?
I am and I think that McCain is a good compromise. Im just giving my opinion about what might happen if the conservatives become active. This is my advice to concerned conservatives. As for me, I would have voted for Rudi, but since he is not running, Ill probably vote for McCain.
Why not be concerned if he's hoping for a republican president this year? I assume he can still be moderate while choosing to vote republican and holding an opinion on this years right wing fracture.
McCain isn't a good compromise. He's going to appoint the same types of judges to the Courts...that's not moderate.
There's nothing moderate about *this* republican party. They wouldn't know center if it bit them in the butt. And anyone who is moderate has been dubbed a RINO.
The one thing mitigating in favor of McCain is he's been given the designation, but it's because of his position on not wanting tax cuts without commensurate spending cuts and not being an anti-hispanic hysteric, not for the social issues which matter to most normal moderates.
I think that he is the most moderate candidate up for election.
I will say he used to be moderate until he started sucking up to the relgious right and decided he's a social conservative. But he isn't a moderate. It's just your party has gone so far to the right that you reject your real moderates like Chuck Hegel.
that certainly is an opinion...
While my greatest concern about Mccain is his "bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb iran" attitude to the mid east and his sidekick butt-buddy liberman's duel national concern we can all still point at legislation where he reached to support from dems instead of playing the "total partisan" card. Compared to Huck and Romney, Mccain is a moderate on some issues that the left can appreciate.
