Team Maverick Classless Embarrassment

Dave at Oklahomily blog has a good read on John "Maverick" McCain and his former campaign team of spineless vultures.

"Why John McCain's Campaign Team Has No Honor"
Money Quote- " He surrounds himself with progressives who flatter him for going against conservative principles, and then blame his failures (and theirs) on others.
John McCain should be embarrassed, but I doubt if he will be."
Perhaps Republicans will learn from the lessons of 2008 and select a candidate that actually reflects our core beliefs in smaller less intrusive government, rights for the unborn, defeating any enemy that attacks us, lower "flat tax", free enterprise, fair trade, securing the borders and enforcing immigration laws, protecting the 2nd Amendment and the entire Constitution, strong foreign policy, standing up to our enemies instead of coddling them... in other words, a true conservative, a professional and an adult.

John McCain is not that person and never was.

And to those who continually say I never criticize Republicans... I say they don't read this blog.

Without going into too long of a rant... While conservatives in the party were fighting over who was a pure certified conservative, McCain was adored by the Democrat leaning media as the most likeable Republican... he was the media darling (pre-Obama) as far as Republicans go...

Republicans bought into the idea that they needed to move to the middle and compromise some of their values and ideals in order to bring in the so-called moderate middle ground and undecided voters (like you and dave were for example).

McCain represented moving to the middle more than any other candidate except maybe Rudy...

So.. in their infinite wisdom, one by one, funding and support to candidates like Duncan Hunter and finally even Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney was withdrawn by the party. Voters were allowed to be convinced that McCain was the answer... beat them at their own game.

And we see how that worked out.
McCain was getting trounced UNTIL he picked Sarah Palin... from that moment on he gained ground on Obama until election day... but it was too little and too late.

I hope and pray conservatives learned a lesson.
Go to the base, stick to your beliefs and let the chips fall where they may.

Very good point. Choosing McCain as their candidate was a really bad idea.

And I know you support Sarah in 2012 but I just can't buy into her.

Some of her beliefs and political positions might agree with mine but there is just something about her that I don't see Presidential material in.

I'm not really sure who I would support in 2012. Little too early at this point anyway, I need to concentrate on fixing Congress first. LOL!

Is there anyway you can set up this blog where I can have your new posts and your new comments sent to my email address? (

Sarah's not for everybody, her speaking mannerisms grind on me sometimes, but I think I can thank Tina Fey for that...

I'm not gonna try and sell you on Sarahcuda, I know she is to the right of you on a few things... but on the issue of abortion, she is a terrific champion for life, but there is one person that I know of who has fought even harder to end abortion.

I just really admire her for her knowing what she stands for and why, (true conservative ideology) knowing how she believes our government should run, I admire her for getting the outstanding experience she has gotten (more than just being a community organizer for ACORN) while raising 5 children including having a special needs baby... she is a good Christian person who stands for good things, fights even Republican corruption and understands nature and conservation and wildlife (not the Hollywood or DC kind) while also understanding the need for mankind to develop, preserve and create.

I actually prefer Duncan Hunter as President with Sarah as VP due to his superior experience in foreign affairs, military, the fair tax his repeated attempts to grant right to life to the unborn and dealing with congress.

I worked on Hunter's Campaign some in late 2007 and early 08 so I know quite a bit about him.

From what I have read about Duncan Hunter, I could feasibly see myself supporting him. You know what I mean? The whole the pros outweigh the cons sort of thing?

Hunter is a good man, a little on the old fashioned side... and not the most dynamic public speaker, but he is truly a good man with whom I agree on the issues about 98% according to those pick a candidate poll thingy's last year.

I ran across his position papers the other day and I think I will re-post them in the very near future.

Thanks steve... here's to you and your family having a fantastic fourth!

I am curious. What do you think about Pat Buchanan?

2:24 PM  
Blogger Red S Tater said...

Honest guy but slightly over into the kooky right category... he actually supported Duncan Hunter, after Tancredo dropped out (his daughter worked for tancredo) but then again he also supported Ron Paul because they are good friends... so Pat is a little "over the top" for my taste and if I recall he bailed on the Iraq effort which turned out to be a mistake. His sister is pretty bright.

i was reading something about him being an anti-war conservative so it perked my interest. i think i might read some more into him.

We could do worse than Pat Buchanan that's for sure... he is an honorable man, just wrong about the Iraq war, but I'll bet you would enjoy reading his stuff now that I think about it.

I just find it intriguing that there is a conservative out there that is against war.

I wonder if there are any others that aren't as kookie as Pat.

By the way, I am still not getting comment notification at my email account.
