Is may just be me, but it is a little disturbing when a party’s Vice Presidential candidate elicits more enthusiasm than its Presidential candidate. Yet, this is exactly what is happening in the Republican party. While I must say that I am happier with Gov. Palin on the ticket, there are several things that trouble me.
First, how can a President work well with a Vice President who is diametrically opposed to almost all of his positions? And if a VP can work under conditions like that, what does that say about that person’s character? John McCain’s positions, on most topics, are much closer to Joe Lieberman, or even Joe Biden, than they are to Sarah Palin. And how will he fare in the coming campaign, when he is personally overshadowed by his VP? This could turn out to be another Old What’s His Name/Geraldine Ferraro ticket. Who remembers Fritz Mondale?
In fact, John McCain is not yet the official candidate of the Republican Party. It might be worth considering the nomination of Sarah Palin as the Republican nominee for President. After all, the race would still be a referendum on Barack Obama, but if he loses, there would be, not only a Conservative [granted a relatively unknown one], but the first woman in the White House.p>This could prove historic for the Republican Party. br> — Michael Tobias /p> p> This comment from Quin Hillyer has convinced me of what I have suspected for some time: Quin Hillyer is the biggest ninny in your employ. br> — Curt Evans /p>
True to form James Antle III, who was a fan of two-faced Jim “Judas” Webb and the liberal blue dog Democrats of 2006, reveals why the GOP and conservatives would be wise to ignore such people — they are a major reason Democrats now control Congress. As for Pat Buchanan who cares what this faux conservative and revisionist historian of WW II thinks? He actually blames the Jews, the British and America for the final solution, WW II and Muslim extremism. This MSM “conservative” out of spite and to please his liberal masters has led the charge to undermine President Bush (a real conservative) and the GOP. This is why this toady is now a liberal favorite. As to the argument that the Governor of Alaska is as inexperienced as Barack Obama that’s Democrat BS and MSM media spin to insulate their messiah and his cheater/plagiarist running mate Joe Biden from the truth.
This race isn’t about the #2 it is about the #1 and at least John McCain knows we have 50 states as opposed to 57 or 58, the Presidency is for 4 or 8 years and not 10, wants to defeat Muslim terrorism not nurture it, work towards real energy independence and not line the pockets of special interests and anti-American despots, refuses to accept millions of dollars in potentially illegal foreign donations from Muslims with ties to terrorists, is a bona fide war hero and American citizen and picked a smart, intelligent, attractive, reformist with a 19 year old Soldier son deploying to Iraq with a Striker Brigade this September 11th. As long as McCain ignores the “wisdom” of James Antle III and Pat Buchanan he’ll be the 44th President of the United States of America.p>Semper Fi br> —

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?
