>McCain thinks he’s still our leader

(CARTOON BY MICHAEL RAMIREZ)

Can I just say that I never liked McCain as a Republican candidate in the first place (see here). I voted for him, but he was the worst candidate on the field (except for maybe Ron Paul) with an R by his name. You take the most liberal Republican and run him against a liberal Democrat, and what do you get? A liberal democrat President and a liberal Republican Senator supporting said Democrat.

I found it interesting that in this article McCain did the following: Told his fellow Republicans to tone down the rhetoric against illegal immigration. To quote the article, “McCain told colleagues their poor image among Hispanics, which he attributed to bitter intra-party squabbles over immigration reform, dealt his campaign a devastating blow.” He says that he thinks the reason he lost is that he didn’t reach out enough to Hispanics. It couldn’t be, say, the fact that McCain isn’t a conservative, or the fact that he has consistently supported initiatives that wreck our country and invite these illegals into the country. Naaah.

Also, the article states, “McCain also unveiled a new political action committee, Country First, a grassroots organization that borrows from his campaign slogan and promises to “strengthen our party [and] better define our Republican ideals and message.” Ok, first of all Senator McCain, YOU LOST! This doesn’t give you the right to define our Republican ideals. I lump you with all of those Republicans who, after this past election, said that we didn’t win because we were “too conservative.”

It is time for new leadership, conservative leadership, dare I say it, Republican leadership in the Republican party. I am tired of Democrats shoving their agenda down our throats when they are in power, and then demanding that we be “bipartisan” (read: do what the Democrats want to do) when the Republicans are in power. I say let’s end this bipartisan nonsense, and push for passage of laws that are good for this country, whether Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi think they are good or not. There is a culture war taking place in this country, and the Pelosi bunch are the enemy. That is all.
