…according to CNN.
I wasn’t a Huckabee supporter, but I’m definitely NOT a McCain supporter. As someone has stated on this board, a vote for McCain is like “destroying the Republican Party in order to save it.” This I refuse to do.
So now that it’s McCain vs. Obama or Hillary, I don’t have a dog in the hunt.
So for the rest of this Presidential campaign I’m puttin’ my feet up and relaxing.
Come November I’ll selectively vote in the lower races – and against all bond issues that involve spending money, as I always do – and the Presidential race blank.
This race is not about destroying the Republican Party (though it could very well do that), but rather, about America being destroyed from without and within.
I disagree with Sen. McCain on a whole host of issues, but I don’t doubt his commitment to this country.
That being said, he should not consider my vote to be automatic. He’ll have to earn it.
McCain (like Bush) has (and will continue) to invite terrorists to prance across our southern border, not having to concern themselves with passing through immigration at JFK. In their backpacks they can carry components for WMD’s. So much for McCain being better than the Democrats in protecting the homeland.
As for earning our vote, his actions for the past ten years speaks far more about how he’ll conduct himself than will whatever he says between now and November.
As President, he’ll only move further left than he did as a Senator – he’ll get along just fine with his Democrat majority in the House and Senate, freed of any concern of having to deal with that inconvenient Republican Party.
The election is already lost – the only question is which Democrat will be President: Obama; Hillary or McAmnesty.
Don’t vote for John McCain.
He is another George Bush, and you know what we got with him.
I will not vote for any Republican.
They have no clue, spend, and then laugh about it all.
This November, we the voters will laugh at them!

While I lost as a Huckabee delegate candidate yesterday I still like Huckabee. Huckabee actually got some delegates in Rhode Island yesterday as well as McCain..
I will proudly cast my vote for McCain in November. McCain needs to bring the party together but his detractors need to work with him too and he with them.
>>McCain needs to bring the party together but his detractors need to work with him too and he with them.
Unfortunately that’d be totally out of character for McCain.
Other than “mavericking across the aisle” to work with Democrats, he’s not the accommodating sort.
He takes delight in sticking a knife in the back of his own Party, particularly conservatives.
There’s no reason to believe that’ll change if he’s President – if anything it’ll be worse, as he “bipartisans” with the Democrat majority to “accomplish the peoples work” – like keeping the borders wide open; offering amnesty to illegal aliens and nominating “acceptable” Supreme Court nominees of the Souter mode.
Does anybody realize that we’re headed for a general election where, at most, half of partisan America will be happy with its party’s nominee? There will never be a better opportunity for a third-party candidate.
Bloomberg declared himself out too soon.
