McCain & Abel
February 4, 2008
Daily Pundit has a rather impressive list of reasons to avoid John McCain, but this example of flip-floppage stands out:
“I believe my party has gone astray. I think the Democratic Party is a fine party, and I have no problems with it, in their views and in their philosophy.”
McCain said this in 2004 when speaking at a DEMOCRAT Party shindig at the time he was being TOUTED by the MSM and quite a few Democrats (and maybe McCain himself?) for a possible shot as Kerry’s VP nominee.
He thinks the GOP has gone astray, but the Democrats haven’t. Therefore, we must vote for him, because he’s not a Democrat.
The “P” word is my problem. If you can’t say you disagree with the philosophy of huge government, non-foreign policy, and social relativism, you are not a conservative. Period
