For anyone willing to research the facts, the truth about McCain should be obvious: he is a liar, a cheater, and a fraud. Mitt Romney will not say that directly because he has too much class to sling the real dirt that exists on McCain. What people are not saying is that John McCain is much weaker on National Security than Mitt Romney, war hero or not. In fact, Hillary Clinton is much closer to McCain when it comes to policies affecting Homeland Security and Defense. Surprised? You should not be.

Even as a Washington outsider, Mitt understands more comprehensively how National Security is tied to important items like economics, smart energy policies, homeland security legislation, immigration control, tougher crime and terror penalties, and a stronger military. McCain comes across in his rhetoric as a tough National Security guy, if not a hot-headed, trigger-happy, war hawk. However, he lacks the temperament, intelligence, and integrity required of a true leader in the National Security arena; but most importantly, his security policy ideas are flawed.

This is without even getting into the McCain personal skeletons!

fascinating to see repugs essentially devouring their own for a change; i always thought this was a strictly dem trait.

and jcfroehlich, i'm having trouble writing this because i'm laughing so damn hard. where DID you get these fantasies about mitt? my god, i suffered through his gawdawful tenure as guv in MA, and we HATE him, do you hear?

romney is THE MOST PHONEY BALONEY caricature of a politician ever to come down the pike. he knows how to get elected, and then - literally - disappears. he was NEVER here.

and to get elected, he pandered to the liberal electorate, just as he's pandering to the repug electorate now.

geez; amazing how folks just glaze over when talkin' 'bout their political crushes. all reason and plain good sense just go out the window.

"Rush Limbaugh has said McCain's nomination would turnoff so many conservatives it would destroy the Republican Party."(as he knows it)

As a recovering Republican who is now a DINO, the current Republican Party should be poisoned with Po, cremated and sent in to far outer space. I could then opt for conservative balanced budget and balance of payment values. I want to see conservative private sector regulation to end the speculation drunken Wall St party we have had for the last 25 years. We need to sop up excess liquidity and obscene profits by the speculators with substantial tax increases on hedge fund operators and other who have been rewarded beyond their contributions.

You couldn't make this stuff up...McCain's front-runner status does the work of Kim Jong Il?

A Republican melt-down, how tragic, I can't stop laughing.

"Rush Limbaugh has said McCain's nomination would turnoff so many conservatives it would destroy the Republican Party"

Wonder if he's for that or against it. Hey, is Limburger gaining more weight? He looks bad.

McCain has said he'd appoint more judges like Alito and Roberts. That in itself is enough to scare the bejesus out of any thinking person who is not a Torey or Monarchist. These Federalist elitists have the ethics of thieves and swindlers. The Lucy Ledbetter case in point. The Conservative junta on the court ruled in favor of Goodyear saying it was OK for Goodyear to cheat Ledbetter out of thousands of dollars in salary through paying her less than other managers-even ones hired after her, as long as she didn't know she was being cheated. In the suit against the banks that knowingly aided and abetted the Enron felonies, they argued that those banks could not be sued by investors who lost billions and employees of Enron who lost their 401ks. In effect they were saying you can sue the bank robber but not the driver of the get away car. These guys are elitists dedicated to protecting the rich, the priveledged and the powerful. They in no way represent anything close to the main stream of the American people. And McCain hearts them.

jcfroehlich | February 01, 2008 at 01:51 PM posts "the truth about McCain should be obvious: he is a liar, a cheater, and a fraud". I did not think McCain was that similar to George Bush.

I am getting concerned over McCain's infatuation with war combined with his headstrong anger. SCARY! I keep hearing him repeat WAR WAR WAR!
To me this is much more serious than his lack of understanding of the economy and not being a fiscal conservative.
I agree with Ronald Kessler a "McCain Presidency Would Be a Disaster
While McCain clearly has formidable supporters, and his stand on the Iraq war was admirable, those who have dealt with him over the years have been appalled by his outbursts, a character trait the media have largely ignored"
If he will tell boldfaced lieds about an opponent how will he respond with his hot temper in a position of power?
