I cannot STAND John McCain!!!
Between his constant use of the phrase "MY FRIENDS," his gesticulations (wild finger pointing) and that mass/growth/lump on his face (I know he can't help it, but it is increasingly distracting and makes me question his physical health)

Let the cons run this old geezer. Bring.It.On.

We WILL beat them in November.

3. How did you guess?
He bores me to death. There is nothing hopeful or about change emanating from the mouth of this old man. He's as vintage as the aircraft in that town hall!!

2. Can't say I'm exactly hogwild about the man either, 48percenter.

And whichever candidate the GOP nominates, I'm in a serious butt-kicking frame of mind.

5. I love when he just randomly interjects "let me give you some straight talk..."
Even if it doesn't make sense. He did this at the debate last week and it sounded really awkward.

"Let me give you some straight talk, my friends. I'm really, really old."

8. Are you saying you'll vote for McCain if he and Obama are the nominees?
I can't think of any other way to interpret that post.

9. My friends, I too am getting tired of him
I just counted him using the phrase, "My friends" 7 times in a 45 second piece.

10. it seems
that "my friends" is some kind of mechanism he uses...like to not say "Uhm" or "Uh." I find it distracting to say the least. He used it 50 times in his Iowa concession speech.
He is 71 years old. His memory is going. Besides that no matter what repubs think he is very conservative. I don't want this man to be president. He probably won't be re-elected to the senate, his ratings are terrible in AZ.

11. Doesn't McCain support torture
when he was tortured and imprisoned for years in another lie of a war-Vietnam? He knows it doesn't work or did he confess? Whatever...the enemy knows before we do anyway.

Powell (Powell shot down over Russia in the spy plane) said secrets and spying is ridiculous because they usually know already what we are up to. The enemy knows before the citizens.

30. McCain wants unending years of war
which will destroy us like it did Russia. He wants to return our Constitution or what?

15. Exactly, that's why I hate that phrase, its phoney
and its filler.

He ain't my FRIEND. :puke: :puke:

12. I used to like him, way back. Can't stand him any more. If he fucking says
"white flag of surrender" one more fucking time, I'm going to hunt down the old cruster and put my foot up his heroic ass.

17. I saw...
.. (as much as I could stand) him on MTP this morning. Timmy was playing gotcha, and get this, on the only issue besides torture I agree with him on - letting the tax cuts for the rich expire, he's now flipflopped.

God I hope he is the nominee, no wait, I hope Huckleberry Hound is, no wait I hope Mitten, no wait, Ghouliani.

That's a sad pack of losers they have over there :)

20. seriously, and if you look at the Repube numbers
the turnout compared to the Dems, I think no matter who they run, we will win. I am not going to give into depressed thinking.

21. If we can't win now, I don't know when we will..
... by the time November rolls around the Republicaomics economic stench will be pervasive.

I'm setting my hopes high, not just the white house, but a workable majority in the house and senate.

I think all are possible.

22. I try to remain objective
but if the GE turnout is super high, who knows what we could accomplish? :bounce:

24. Not only that, in his appearance accepting the Crist endorsement, he said "Democrat Party" again.
He's happy to indulge in that right wing insulting shit, so fuck him.

25. He won't win the Republican nomination
All he has is his continuous, ad nauseum defense of the Iraq war. He hasn't won any of the debates to date. Look, he is a retired Navy guy who went right to the Congress after that.

If he did win, he will be blown away in the head to head debates with whomever wins our nomination :-).

26. I wish I saw more threads like this in GDP
Edited on Sun Jan-27-08 01:32 PM by tishaLA
that know the real enemy. and the shame is that it has fewer recs than any generic hillary or obama bashing thread.

27. I agree
We need to remember what we are fighting for and against. Shouldn't be each other.

29. I liked the man back when he had a soul in the 1990s. He has been
too much of a neocons * lapdog for me of late.
