The New York Times has endorsed John McCain, as their hopeful, Republican presidential candidate.
Senator John McCain of Arizona is the only Republican who promises to end the George Bush style of governing from and on behalf of a small, angry fringe. With a record of working across the aisle to develop sound bipartisan legislation, he would offer a choice to a broader range of Americans than the rest of the Republican field.
In other words, “he’s less of a conservative, and that’s way cooler.”
John McCain has consistently worked only to his own benefit and stood only on the principles that work to his advantage. Forget Republican Party ideals, I’m talking just plain ol’ conservative principles. McCain-Feingold, Gang-of-Fourteen, Gunshow-loophole ring any bells? Senator McCain, like Mike Huckabee, has been a consistent, divisive force within the GOP. The only people he seeks to unite are those that will get him elected.
I’m not saying I wouldn’t like to see some aspects of “George Bush style of governing” come to and end, but McCain is not the answer!
I respect his military service greatly and the years he suffered at the hands of the Vietcong. In fact, how does one thank someone like that enough?
The least I can do is hold my nose and vote for him if he does indeed become the GOP candidate. I am sure there are many Democrats that will do the same when it comes to Obama and Hillary.
…and as if I needed another reason to not want him as the Republican candidate.
