    This is the John McCain that non-partisans can all appreciate. Welcome back, John.
    When I read tripe like this coming from "pacifist" politicians who think they can get anything done by being nice, it makes me glad that this moron lost the election. He didn't deserve it, didn't fight for it and certainly sounded more like Obama light than anything remotely considered Conservative.

    I do have to laugh at your "non-partisan" comment though. It is certainly amusing and naive to think that if only we had nothing but non-partisans, things would get done better and more efficiently.

    In order for someone to have such nave views, one has to presume that people do not have significant differences about how they think Government should work and what Governments intended role is.

    This is exactly why John McSame will lose his senate seat in Arizona, and good f***ing riddance.
    Hitting the nail right on the proverbial head.

    That is not to say that the far Left is appealing to most Americans.
    Most Americans on both side of the fence are moderates, and are put off by radical extremists of any stripe.

    But now the conservatives are saying, "Well, McCain lost the election because he was too centrist and had liberal leanings. We need to get back to our hardcore, fundamentalist conservative roots. Our whole problem is that we've capitulated too much, we've given in to the moderates and centrists. Screw that; we're going back to fundamentalist Right-wing Extremism. Then we'll win back America, by golly."

    See, I don't really think that plan is going to work.
    But, I mean, I hope they don't let my opinion stop them.
    No one is saying "We need to get back to our hardcore, fundamentalist conservative roots".

    That is the words of a Liberal and the mainstream drive-by media.

    McCain's version of Conservatism is a Washington insider view of the word. His views were not that much more distinguishable from Obama's. The amusing thing about Obama's campaign is he was sounding just like a Conservative with his populist message about giving 97% of Americans, which is a lie, tax deductions.

    The issue for the Republican Party is to get back on message; limited Government, lower taxes and fiscal responsibility with a strong military for defense and protecting our allies.

    America is not lurching to Socialism. Americans, in their lemming like way as predicted by Osama Bin Laden, have no stomach for war and commitment. This is why any new platform for the Republicans must also include never committing forces for anyone unless it is a direct threat to American lives.

    By the way, this was one of your best posts and very different from stuff I have seen from the past; kudos.

    In my defense I liked McCain as a person, policy wise he was a flip flopper as much as Kerry, Obama and Romney were.

    And you think that your positions and those of Obama are those of a moderate?

He is back to his old self too. Like him or not, you have to agree that he really is a very decent guy when he is himself. Welcome back, George, and God bless you.
    He always was the same person; your refusal to comprehend that may be colored by the events that led to our eventual and LEGAL invasion of Iraq after 9-11.

    If there had never been a 9-11, an attack that killed more Americans than the attack on Pearl Harbor, things would be very different.

    What has been illustrated over the last 8 years is that Americans, as Osama had stated, do not have the character, the will or the stomach to make the sacrifices needed to promote Democracy, put down terrorism and fight the enemies of freedom.

    As an independent(though, a conservative one), will say there is some "bigotry" on the evangilical-side of the fence. It must be noted that, for the most part, bigotry in America is pretty much slim, but there still is a significant portion of it and most of it in the hands of those like Pat Robertson, fallwell(deceased), and those typical "biblethumpers" who are a very small, but vocal minority of the "evangilical" wing.

    You know, TD. It is not only John McCain who disagrees with you. Newt Gingrich disagrees with you too. And I don't think for a minute that you would dare to call Professor Gingrich naive. And as for John McCain, what you call tripe is what is known as honesty. We need more of it. Hell, if McCain had been this candid during the election season, he probably would have won.
