Awwww Northgate... sorry I pushed your button. Smooch, smooch.
Though I find your passion compelling, I have not given McCain a pass on anything. Just because I don't mimic your liberal and droning disdain for the man does not mean I don't have issues with him. Issues I have pointed out in the past here like amnesty, continuing war in the ME, global warming BS, windfall profits BS, etc. I'm sorry you've either accidentally (or willingly) missed those comments.
It's lazy and dishonest of you to claim that I slam Obama on everything and McCain on nothing. That's just what you want to see, because that is how your mind works. Obama will be a big disaster when it comes to socializing medicine, tax increases, and most
of the rest of his agenda... the Carter agenda. I have no interest in feigning support for a candidate with which I disagree with 85% of the time. And I disagree with McCain about 70-80% of the time. Liberals enjoy stoking the fires of "conservatives hate McCain" and then pretend that such a creature does not exist when they encounter one in the wild... they claim such two-sided partisan stupidity as you have above.
Just because I am afraid of where BHO will take this country does not make me a Republican... at least in the minds of thinking people. That "nuance" thing that was a shield for Kerry and is for Obama, remember? I'll gladly become a Republican again should that party reflect my values. At present it does not.
I have not been a donor or active member of the GOP since early 2004. I'm sorry I don't trash them enough to pass the Northgate test, but I really don't care enough about it to bother.
Republicans spend too much, acted like assholes while in power, and have made huge concessions to play nicey-nice with the likes of Schumer, Kennedy, and Reid. And look where it has gotten them... out of power and reviled by their conservative base.The GOP has abandoned many of the principles that earned them my vote. I support and vote for people who put individual freedoms and liberty first. Call that whatever you want, Northgate.
BTW, none of this should surprise you, if you are reading national polls, especially among conservatives and libertarians. Approval ratings of the democrat congress also is now at, what, under 10%? Bush just slightly above that? No one is happy with our government right now.
And BTW... I'm still waiting for the "full force attack" on Michelle Obama you accused me of.
