McCain Should Not Be GOP Nominee

Monday, 28 Jan 2008 09:51 AM

By John LeBoutillier

It is now clear: The liberal so-called mainstream media is propelling John McCain to the Republican nomination.

And it is also clear that if McCain wins Florida tomorrow — a strong likelihood — the (pathetic) GOP establishment will rush to McCain and embrace him as the inevitable nominee even before the Feb. 5 Super Tuesday primaries.

In Florida the GOP establishment, Sen. Mel Martinez and Gov. Charlie Crist, have already endorsed McCain and pretty much guaranteed that McCain will win on Tuesday.

If and when he does win, the vanquished GOP candidates, Giuliani and Thompson, are soon to jump aboard the McCain bandwagon. And that will be followed by state party leaders all across the nation.

How sickening this spectacle is. What the GOP establishment is doing is embracing someone totally out of step with the GOP voters. Just look at some recent events:

  • McCain hired Juan Hernandez, the leading proponent of amnesty for illegal Mexicans living here in the U.S.

  • On "Meet The Press" on Sunday McCain dodged the question from Tim Russert about whether or not, as president, he would sign his own McCain-Kennedy Immigration bill (which is, in fact, virtual amnesty for illegals). (He will give amnesty when in the Oval Office — especially with a Democratic Congress.)

  • On Sunday in Florida, McCain promised there would be “more wars.” What a way to campaign! What a promise from a potential president! How about pledging to try to prevent more wars?

  • He has already said that if it were up to him we’d stay in Iraq for “10,000 years.”

  • He is a bad guy who, for a number of reasons, has the media eating out of his hand.

  • He has a terrible anger problem. (See Ted Sampley's excellent article at the US Veteran Dispatch.)

  • He wants to bomb all over the Middle East.

    Don’t be fooled by polls in January predicting what may or may not happen in November. The general election is a long, long way off. Campaigns are run to change polls. Someone may look electable today but not be so in six months. Remember President Giuliani? The Democrats will have a field day with McCain: He’s a third term of Bush; he’s too old; he’s a mad bomber; he is unstable.

    The Republican Party is about to compound the mistake they made in begging G.W. Bush back in 1999 to run for president. He has been a total disaster for the country.

    McCain will be even worse.
