What A Mess
Now, I'm not saying that I'm a huge fan of the senator from Arizona. With me being a conservative, he was not my first, second, or third choice, but it's looking more and more like he is going to be the Republican nominee, and there is no way that I'm going to spend my time trying to take him down. Even if I have qualms with his record, I know that he is on the right side of many issues, two of which are very important to me. First, he is staunchly pro-life and has the voting record to prove it. Secondly, he won't let Iraq become another Vietnam, and will instead give our boys a chance to defeat the enemy and help the Iraqis establish a stable democracy.
Victor Davis Hanson, came out with a great piece today on Townhall.com, with the title, "Democrats Want to Lose... But Republicans Don't Want To Win." He writes, "If Hillary Clinton does end up winning her party's nomination, November's vote may hinge on whether moderates and liberals are nauseated enough by the Clintons' brawling and character assassination to cross over and vote for a decorated Republican war hero — that is, if his own flag-waving party doesn't destroy him first. "
In the most recent polling by Rasmussen (1/25-1/27), John McCain is ahead by 8 points over Clinton and by 6 points over Obama . On the contrary, Mitt Romney has trailed Clinton in every poll since the beginning of January, and has never led in a poll when matched up against Obama.
Again I say, if Republicans want to win in November, they need to come together and rally around McCain. If they don't, and they destroy him instead, we're looking at retreat and defeat in Iraq, higher taxes, more spending, bigger government, liberal justices being appointed to the Supreme Court, and a litany of other things that are sure to take place with Hillary or Obama as president. For the sake of our futures, let's not let that happen.
