If he wins the primary, he has a pathetic chance to be president, after the MSM instantly throws the blade switch in their newsrooms from 'Mac is Back', to 'Stab Mac in the Back'. Even if he miraculously takes the general election, nobody will be able to point to this disaster, then point to me and say... 'See what you republicans did to the country?' As if I played a role in this choice; which I, most assuredly, will not.
If you set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.

I am already sick of explaining to morons that consistently refuse to listen, that most of the egregious complaints against George Bush are a result of his liberal domestic positions, his capitulation to media pressure, his concensus driven lack of spine and his general abandonment of conservative fiscal principles.
There are still people in my party who believe in consensus politics. I regard them as Quislings, as traitors... I mean it.
To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.

McCain would be another Bush presidency without the tax cuts, without the conservative judicial appointments, without the terrorist water boarding policy. Additionally we would enjoy a complete abandonment of border security, presidential capitulation to this absurd global warming hoax and on and on and on... Don't tell me that he has actually changed his positions on these issues. The man is an outright liar.
I was talking to my friend Steve, another conservative and Romney supporter. Unlike me, if Mac takes the primaries, he will not write in his candidate on the general ballot. He will vote democrat. This seemed a bit extreme to be. He did made a compelling argument, though. Knowing that there is only a rancid choice between McCain and Democrat-X, you put the hand of the real liberal on the handle of the flushing toilet. This way, as the country is swirling in the bowl, the appropriate blame goes to the right party. A McCain presidency is slow poison to the GOP, moving Reagan conservatism towards destruction.
All I can say is that next Tuesday's results are more important than the general election. It better be a good one.
You tell them Maggie. When I go to vote for a woman president, I only have eyes for someone like you. By the way, Mitt got the honorable Thatcher thumbs up.
