The Number One Reason I Will Be Voting for John McCain in November

Here is an excerpt from my column at Townhall today:

Recently on a talk radio show, the guest, a Democrat, said there was little difference in policy between John McCain and the two Democrats running for President. Many of those calling in agreed. Considering McCain's recent comments on global climate change and his position on some other issues I can understand why some might have that impression.

If voters are convinced there would not be much difference in policy between a McCain and an Obama presidency, it is likely the majority will go for the young, charismatic candidate who would make history as the first black President. If they vote for Obama thinking he would be
the same on policy as John McCain, though, they will be making a big mistake.

On some of the most important issues the country faces there are huge differences. On one issue in particular, national defense, McCain has demonstrated that he is the only candidate of the three we can afford to have as President at this time.

There is a list of issues I have with John McCain, but the thought of having the inexperienced Obamessiah with the most liberal voting record in the U.S.Senate as President and Commander-in-Chief is more than I can stand. I have already gotten quite a few comments from Townhall readers saying they won't vote for McCain in November. I hope that between now and then the thought of how much better a McCain administration would be than an Obama administration on national security, foreign policy, judges, spending and abortion will convince them otherwise. One more thought -- McCain has said he would include Democrats in his administration. I would gladly take a few Joe Lieberman style Democrats in a McCain administration to an administration full of Sandy Bergers.

Update: Don Surber took a ride on the Straight Talk Express and provides an interesting behind the scenes look not only at McCain, but at the MSM reporters on the bus.

For all of the ludicrous and despicable betrayals of conservatives launched by McCain over the past 7 years, the disaster the US would face with an Obama administration makes holding ones nose and voting for the senates most disgusting RINO an absolute imperative.

I keep hearing Republicans and conservatives saying how they're not going to vote for McCain because they want to "send a message" to the GOP or "make a statement". Oh yeah? You know what that "statement" says about you? That you've got some liberal moonbat DNA in your GOP blood, that's what.

Here's a better idea: Pull your head out of your butt. Vote McCain. Or suffer the consequences.

Obama's administration will more likely be full of Nation of Islam members like his senate staff. That is much worse than "Sandy Bergers".

But having a functionally retarded man in the Whitehouse has not disturbed you?

Failure after failure after failure of this administration has not upset you?

80% of Americans are finally aware of the death of conservative governance. The other 20% reside here at the franticly submissive Wizbang blog.

A perfect example of the Wizbang mindset is here:

So far, Adrian, the head that is spinning is Obama's as he had to keep walking back his own rhetoric.

Not impressive.

Vegas Vic:

Mr. McCain had this to say on Mr. Obama a few minutes ago. If he can only back it up with some brass I might(Might) vote for him in November!

"I have some news for Senator Obama: talking, not even with soaring rhetoric, (unconditional)... in unconditional meetings with a man who calls Israel a "stinking corpse," and arms terrorists who kill Americans, will not convince Iran to give up its nuclear programs.

It is reckless, it is reckless to suggest that unconditional meetings will advance our interests.

You know, it would be a wonderful thing if we lived in a world where we don't have enemies. But that's not the world we live in. And until Senator Obama understands that reality, the American people have every reason to doubt whether he has the strength, judgment, and determination to keep us safe."

McCain is a Trojan Horse. Funded by George Soros. A poster boy for the North American Union. As petulant as George Bush and almost as ugly. And who can forget his performance before the Senate hearings on POW/MIA affairs (if "the troops" is anyone's true concern).

I suggest all Republicans vote for Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or further-on-down the line.

Or Obama for romantics.

And may Lorie's touting of Holy Joe Lieberman (the partial-birth abortion-"religious" guy) color your impression of Lorie's touting of Songbird McCain. (2+2=...)
