You have managed to spin quite a few of McCain’s shortcomings (and believe me, they are shortcomings!), but you fail to address the Gang of 14; the holds he placed on conservative judicial nominees; the in-your-face votes against President Bush; his amnesty for illegals; his stupid adherence to Global Warming Baloney; his votes against tax cuts, his obstinate refusal to consider drilling in the ANWR and I could go on and on.
When he voted against the tax cuts he said it was because they were “tax cuts for the rich.” At that time there was no mention of off-setting cuts in spending. For seven years he did everything in his power to embarrass the President. How many times did we see him on TV reviling Republicans and — especially conservatives?p>I grant you John McCain is better than the alternative, but I want someone to vote FOR. I don’t wish to vote for the lesser of two evils or because it someone’s turn to be the Republican nominee. Senator McCain is the choice of Eastern Liberal Republicans and the RNC. I used to be a Republican, but no longer. I now refer to myself as a Conservative Independent and the RNC has finally stopped asking me for money. I now contribute to the candidates of my choice. br> — Judy Beumler br> Kentucky /p>
Only one other election in the past century produced two major party candidates whom were so far apart in governing philosophy. They were Ronald Reagan the Conservative and Jimmy Carter the Liberal in 1980. The difference between McCain and Obama seems as wide mainly because Obama is to the left of even Jimmy Carter. Obama’s political life has followed in the path of a card carrying Communist. McCain has been a Conservative his entire political life with some compromises to Liberalism he thought necessary for good governance and that have irked other Conservatives.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
