McCain Tries To Assuage Conservatives

By Liz Sidoti - February 2nd, 2008 -

Republican John McCain is trying to ease long-standing distrust among the party's powerful conservatives. It will be a slow process.

"I believe that the majority of Republican Party conservatives are convinced that I'm best equipped to lead this country, unify our party and take on the challenge of radical Islamic extremism," McCain told reporters Saturday.

Unify? Not a chance John, not a chance. As long as I believe in freedom of speech, and the rest of the freedoms guaranteed in our Constitution, I will never unify with you. I may vote for you as the lesser of two evils, but you have no more chance of unifying our party than that socialist who currently occupies the white house. I can see you doing the same bigotry as Bush, signing pork filled bills for seven years and then trying to pretend that you are going to discipline others for what you are most guilty of. McCain is contemptible, Hillary is contemptible and Obama is a socialist. Romney can't win because of rejection by the Christian Right.

This is our final four?

Does anyone like me long for the days before the primaries superceded the old fashioned way of picking candidates. Remember when uncommitted delegates who studied the candidates up close made the selections? That process picked Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy. The new process has given us Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, The two Bushs and Clinton. Only Ronald Reagan broke the pattern.

It certainly is not clear the new way is better, is it ?
