If John McCain loses this election, it was lost when he won the nomination. Unlike Obamanation, who greatly appeals to the core of the Socialist Democrat Party, John appeals only to those that have disdain for both major parties. His core voters are both principle-less and spineless where as the proper role of government is concerned. I won’t recount his many efforts to undermine the core principles of the Republican platform which used to center around the central tenets of the Bill of Rights and individual freedoms. His one bright spot in this election isn’t running for President.
When a man says, “he would rather lose an election than a war” he in essence has already surrendered that which he says he does not want to lose. The election is the war and must be fought with the same dedication to winning as any real war should be if you intend to win it. There is a place for honor but in the middle of a battle you can lose sight of what it takes to win. As General Tommy Franks is fond of saying, “the enemy gets a vote” and one must rise to the occasion if one is to prevail. The Obamanation and his propaganda machine have no honor as someone like McCain would understand. Democrats in general have no interest in honor either as demonstrated by the last four, including Obamanation, Presidential candidates.p>Of course it also goes without saying that if your enemy has more votes than you do than that probably means there are more of them than people with your world view. I put no faith in an ignorant American voting public that has demonstrated time and time again that it is clueless about what goes on outside their own narcissistic universe. The majority of Americans depend on Socialism to get through their daily lives. Obamanation plays to our weaknesses as a people. He is not the problem any more than Hitler was the German people’s problem. Your neighbor is the problem. Obamanation will just be the “organizer” pushing us closer to the cliff. If John McCain can’t grasp he is in a war and act accordingly in pretty short order, Robin Hood, the thief is going to come visit most people’s lives every pay day. But John will have his honor regardless. br> — Thom Bateman br> Newport News, Virginia /p>
We conservatives did not have a dog in this fight until Sarah joined the ticket and that was the only bright spot of this election year. McCain/McBackstabber cannot face a crisis without shooting some conveniently placed Republican prior to beginning any real analysis of the issue (Christopher Cox). McCain/McBackstabber could not even figure that the real villains in this financial debacle were actually on the other side of the aisle. (Frank and Dodd). I am not sure he has it figured out yet. Keep your heads down if you are in the GOP McCain/McBackstabber will be looking for someone to skewer when he loses and he always blames Republicans first.
The silver lining in all of this is that Sarah will be well blooded and ready for 2012.p>Palin/Jindal in 2012! br> — Jeff Seyfert /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
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?
