McCain To Rely On Party Money Against Obama

by Michael Luo and Mike McIntire - May 19th, 2008 - The New York Times

To confront the Obama juggernaut, Senator John McCain, whose fund-raising has badly trailed that of his Democratic counterparts, is leaning on the Republican National Committee. Mr. McCain’s efforts to raise money suffered a blow this weekend when a key fund-raiser, Tom Loeffler, resigned because of a new campaign policy on conflicts of interest.

I cannot deny that I personally love the position that McCain is in. It is both ironic and appropriate that the man who led the battle to destroy political speech in America is being hamstrung by the rules and bureaucracies he created.

Though I plan to vote for McCain as the lesser of two evils, I consider it quite possible that America will be better off in the long run if Obama wins. McCain is advocating the overtly socialist carbon credit cap and trade system with its obvious consequences of destroying our economy. Since Bush-Hastert-Rove have already severely damaged the Republican Party reputation, having a President like McCain smear Republicans even further by destroying our economy cannot be a good thing long term. As a libertarian, I have no other credible place to go to influence our nation than the Republican Party. It concerns me that McCain has so little appreciation for the value to governing of having a party that stands for something.

Maybe McCain is simply not intellectually up to the challenge. There has to be a reason he finished at the bottom of his class at Annapolis. He does not understand the concept of free speech. He does not understand the concept of free enterprise. He does not seem to have the ability to analyze the complex scientific issue of man caused global warming.

Who is surprised at the reality he can't get most Republicans to donate to his campaign. He is almost as much an enemy of our movement as the socialists of the Democrat Party.
