McCain is no Ronald Reagan!

While McCain is on the right side of some conservative issues that include being pro-life and having strong national security credentials, it's not enough in my opinion. He carries way too much liberal democratic baggage.

He co-authored campaign-finance reforms that critics say limit free speech, made combatting global warming a priority and supported an eventual path to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants. He twice voted against President Bush's tax cuts, favored relaxing restrictions on federal financing of embryonic stem cell research and objected to a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage although he opposes same-sex unions.

To assuage conservatives, McCain has rolled out endorsements from leading conservatives and aired a new television ad that mentions Ronald Reagan. He plans to attend a major gathering of conservatives later this month.

Well I guess that settles it then doesn't it? McCain mentioned Ronald Reagan so we should just roll over and go along and stop quibbling over little matters of conflicting core beliefs.

There was only one Ronaldus Maximus, and Mr. McCain, you ain't him!


  1. Loved the Reagan video-What a powerful speaker he was. Kinda makes you tear up a bit!

  2. How can Republicans vote for McCain? He will lose the general election big time ala Bob Dole. The New York Times endorsed him and THAT should tell you all you need to know. People must believe the polls that show him beating Clinton in the general election. Makes one wonder about these polls.

  3. Yep, EXACTLY like Bob Dole.
    Hey, you just gave me an idea...

  4. DaBlade, Thanks very much for posting that clip.

    I've posted on the Snapper site and mention that RWR is my political hero.

    I was up at 4 PM to administer CT's idiotic primary and was continaully at work on it until I got home at about 10:45. Too wired up to go to bed. A few beers is helping.

    But, the reason for this post, it very fitting that I saw this on Feb. 6, Ronaldus Magnus'birthday.

    God Bless you, Mr. President. Thank you for all you did for the USA.
