MCCAIN THE NOMINEE ?

John McCain's victory last night in Florida and the eventual end of the campaign of Rudy Giuliani whose camp has indicated will throw his support behind McCain places the Senator from Arizona as the most likely candidate to gain the GOP nomination.

While Mitt Romney still has an outside chance, the polls from large delegate States like California, New York and New Jersey give McCain a huge advantage especially with the pending support of Giuliani. So now many in the GOP especially Conservatives find themselves in a dilemma.

Do Conservatives who have consistently disliked McCain for several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that he has either presented legislation with a Democrat co-sponsor, (McCain/Feingold and McCain/Kennedy), or backed Democrats with his vote, (the Bush tax cuts), stand behind this left of right Republican if he is the nominee ?

The answer has to be yes. Even though it troubles me as a Conservative to actually admit this fact it none the less is a fact, if we want to keep Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama out of the White House. Most likely Clinton will be the nominee especially after the sweep through the large delegate States on Super Tuesday.

There are two reason if no others why supporting McCain against Hillary is the only option we have as Republicans even with our bitter feeling toward him.

They are , Universal Health Care and the Military. Hillary Clinton with a Democrat Congress is what we will face after November unless we back the GOP nominee and actually get out and vote! Let's look at each of these two reasons individually.

Universal Health Care - This has been the backbone of Hillary Clinton since the first moments of her husbands first term. It is her pet project and if elected it will be before Congress within the first 100 days of her Inauguration. With a liberal Congress to back her this huge entitlement program will be passed forcing every American to subscribe to Hillary Care destroying our medical system and increasing our tax burden to pay for it. McCain though siding with Democrats before is against Universal Health Care.

The Military - Hillary Clinton hates the military. While First Lady she treated the White House guard as if they were her personal valets, even cursing them if they did not do her bidding. She has made it obvious through her career that military spending in , her Socialist mind, can be used better for Social programs.

She will pull our troops out of Iraq, Afghanistan and other hot spots in the world as quickly as possible. I will even venture to say that within one year into a Hillary administration we will see another devastating attack in the 9/11 mode on our soil because she will weaken our security to the point that another attack will happen.

Agree or disagree with McCain he is a staunch supporter of the military has commanded soldiers in combat and will stand strong for the protection of our nation and the fight against Islamic Fanatics.

Many believe that two years of Hillary and a liberal Congress will be so bad that the GOP will regain the majority in 2010 and the Presidency in 2012. While this is most likely true, the damage that she as Commander in Chief and President will do in just two years may not only be next to impossible to reverse but from a security stand point made devastate this nation beyond repair.

Let me ask this, how many government programs once passed and funded have been reversed regardless of how bad they are ? Few if any. In just two years she would increase government to the breaking point and most of that would NEVER be reversed. From a military stand point her destruction of the military as CIC would take years to rebuild and reverse.

Remember how long it took President Reagan to rebuild and strengthen our military after Carter ? We as Republicans and especially Conservatives must remember the lesson of 2006 when many did not vote because of their disappointment in the GOP Majority. That fiasco gave us the Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid Congress who have been the worst in history!

Barry Goldwater , the Conservatives, Conservative, once said in reference to fellow Conservatives who did not like Richard Nixon in the 1960 election, " “Let’s grow up, conservatives! If we want to take this party back, and I think we can someday, let’s get to work.” Though he disagreed with Nixon he backed him for the Presidency. Ronald Reagan did the same when Nixon ran again in 1968 and 1972.

My fellow Conservatives though we may dislike John McCain the alternative with either Democrat possibility is more than this nation can bare. Hillary or Obama would march us down the path to Socialism, which may be irreversible, devastate our Military making us vulnerable to Al Qaeda or any other Islamic Extremists that wish us dead. As well as weaken our position in the world to the point that we would become the puppet of the United Nations with a nation reminiscent to the days of Jimmy Carter with a Socialist in the White House rather than a liberal who was a weak President.

We cannot allow this to happen and turning out to vote, standing with the GOP nominee is the only way that we can prevent the slide to Socialism and the devastation of our Military. The rest we can fight for with our united voice. Remember even John McCain had to bow to the people over the Amnesty Bill BECAUSE we united as one ad demanded it so. We can do the same with what we do not like in a McCain Presidency. Hillary on the other hand does not care what the people think because in her Socialist thinking, government is the answer and the people must accept what government demands.

I concur that we must support, even actively work for, John McCain.

With the Thompson and Rudy withdrawals, my support must go to Romney, but I will support the eventual GOP candidate because the alternative is not an option.

Which speaks mightily about the state of the GOP. I have heard several, including Rush, say that a McCain nomination would destroy the GOP. I think Rush is using hyberbole as he is want to do, but this is one major area of disgreement that I have with him. The GOP has caused its own demise because we squandered the "cry for change" that we made in 1994.

Had we decided to govern instead of simply change the office door signs, we would still be in control of the legislature and be in clear control of the Presidency for another decade.

Agreed. I also think that Rush beleives that Hillary will not be any worse than carter. I beleive she will be far worse than Carter because of her Socialist policy and her disdain for the military.

I will vote for McCain if he wins the nomination. Obviously, I can't stand his ideology, but I agree that a Hillary or Obama pick is much more damaging.

It pleases me that consensus is building amongst conservatives that, in fact, McCain (if he is the eventual nominee) ought be supported in spite of the valid misgivings some conservative elites have expressed in the past. There is no other option and your words on Hillary are correct…

Oh yes and by the way, having a 'carter' in office in this day and age would be very, very dangerous. Especially hearing Iran just say they will have a nuke by next year, then follow it up by saying Israel will eventually cease to exist.

We are living in serious times and we can't afford to have a 'carter' or any lib in office in my opinion. The scariest part of all is that it seems that there are a lot of Americans who are asleep at the wheel and aren't paying attention to what is going on globally.

Yes, we will have to hold our nose, close our eyes, sing "God Bless America" really , REALLY LOUD and vote for McCain if he is the nominee.

Anything but Hillary.

But then what? Watch as what is left of our GOP leadership in Congress is neutered on issue after issue when they try to draw a contrast with the Dems and find McCain is against us?

It's not a pretty picture. It stinks!

It is sad that the reason McCain now enjoys such a substantial lead is because so many Conservatives have abandoned their Conservative principles because they think real Conservative candidates are unelectable.

They have it backwards.

Conservatives did not abandon their principles because the true Conservative candidates are unelectable. Conservative candidates are unelectable because conservatives have abandoned their principles.

I will vote for McCain if he is the republican Presidential nominee.

Then, I will go home and take a shower.

Ken (and others), it seems odd to me that you are advocating a vote for McCain when you dislike him so much. I get that you believe he is the lesser of two evils, but you are essentially bowing down to the Republican establishment at a time that it seems you should be taking a stand.

Basically, the Republican establishment is forcing McCain down the base's throat. It appears to be demoralizing the base, which will leave it weakened and divided going forward.

At least if Clinton is in office (or Obama), there is a common enemy for all Republicans to take aim on. I heard Michele Malkin argue that she would stay home and would encourage all of her readers to stay home also to send a message to the Republican establishment.

Vote for McCain if you like, but don't ask the Republican establishment for anything because they know you will accept whatever they decide.

Mark , Mike and Rivka, - it stinks knowing that McCain is headed to the nomination but the alternative is just more than is acceptable by any maeasure.

Rob -The rise of McCain has happened because of a fear in the GOP of Hillary as President. If you research the polls all the way back to the summer, with two exceptions when Giuliani was still viable, McCain has been the ONLY GOP candidate who consistantly polled better than Hillary.

I think when voters enetered the booth and considered who to vote for the choice became McCain because polling show he can beat Hillary.

I also believe this goes in line with Marks comment about leaving principle behind for electability. Many for instance abandoned Fred because he was polling low and went with a candidate who was polling better.

This is a similar situation to 68 and 72 when Nixon was elected. though Mccain won't be another Nixon because he is not parinoid as Nixon was,McCain will be one who bows to the Dems with the exception of the two issues that I stated in the post.

Hey, all! McCain hasn't won this thing yet! Ken, did you see the total idiot McCain made out of himself last night during the debate on CNN? It became very clear that he lied about Romney and he and Romney really got into it. I hope you saw it. Schwartzenegger is still going to endorse McCain, but I'm not surprised by that, as liberal as Schwartzenegger is.

Rudy is endorsing McCain too. I'm sure glad I never chose to back him!

I'll vote for McCain if he wins. I don't have to like it, but I'll do it. At least he won't immediately pull the troops out of Iraq! If Michelle Malkin is actually advocating Republicans not vote if McCain wins, then she's lost a lot of my respect. It won't take the Democrats even four years to destroy this country!

Well I look at it this way.

We all raised absolute hell when the amnesty bill came up, we called the White House, Senator's, Congressman, and we all screamed and carried on, but we got it stopped.

We can force McCain the same way should he become the nominee to go along with what WE want because we did it before to President Bush.

It's just with McCain, this will be a full time job!

I also believe this goes in line with Marks comment about leaving principle behind for electability.

And I argue that it is a principled position to take electability into consideration. There are a lot of factors at play here, for why we are stuck with Romney and McCain. Frankly, what makes anyone believe that no matter who we put forth against Hillary or Obama, the election won't turn out much the same?

The trick is to put forth a candidate who isn't so watered down, that conservatives can rally behind him; but also one who is not so uber-conservative, that he can attract independents and cross-overs.

Obama has that kind of appeal, and could win the election, if he becomes the nominee. Seriously. Your average person isn't paying attention to the National Journals' vote rating on Obama; they are paying attention to his rhetoric and charisma.

Half the country is not conservative.

So Mark can believe Duncan Hunter should have been the nominee, and Fredheads can wish all they want about it, as well. But I don't think that either one had the "it" factor that would have enabled them to beat Obama.

What I don't get from conservatives is the kind of crybaby loser attitude that Michelle Malkin is exemplifying.

After primaries, it's time to rally behind the GOP pick.

Reagan, today, would not be Reagan enough for the base.

"Remember even John McCain had to bow to the people over the Amnesty Bill BECAUSE we united as one ad demanded it"

I would say one of the most important lines! It proves when push comes to shove even McCain will listen.
