The Buzz: McCain and Rice will be the Republican ticket

April 7th, 2008 Urban Conservative

Not confirmed yet but the chatter is getting louder and louder. I wrote a brief post about this a month ago but have been thinking about it for quite sometime. Condi has repeatedly said that she does not “do politics” but her name keeps popping up as a potential running mate for McCain.

As Conservatives, can we really support McCain?

March 25th, 2008 Shawn Dougherty

I want to start off by telling everyone how happy I am to be talking to a new audience. I have been blogging on myspace for a couple years now with a pretty good following, but nothing compares when you can branch off into that new arena, where people may have never heard of you before. Before I get started on this topic, which I am sure everyone has on their minds since John McCain became the Republican nominee, I want to tell you a little about me.

2008 Unleashed: The Dem’s, McCain and Our Nation’s Future

March 17th, 2008 Billy Hallowell

John McCain Image and PicWhat’s most perplexing about the 2008 presidential campaign is the unadulterated love and support Barack Obama has received from America’s young generation (and from American media, but that’s for an entirely different piece). While this support has brought Obama a long way on the seemingly never-ending path toward possible presidential supremacy, Clinton is hanging tough. While I am not a Democrat by any stretch of the imagination, I fluctuate between supporting Obama and Clinton (and by “supporting” I mean “selecting the candidate who won’t make me cry myself to sleep every night if my preferred candidate, Arizona Sen. John McCain, happens to lose in November).

Luckily, on the Republican front McCain has officially been granted the candidacy. Instead of debating back and forth with vying party rivals, he can face the complexities associated with the general election, focusing the breadth of his energy on his upcoming battle with a Democratic contender – whomever he or she may be; this is a clear advantage that some Democrats may be underestimating.

Obama says “NO” to Dream Team but what about McCain and Condi?

March 10th, 2008 Urban Conservative

John McCain and Condi RiceLast week, Hillary hinted about a possible ticket with Barack; and of course the media is painting it as “the dream team” for democrats. Yet today, Barack Obama rebuked the idea of being Hillary’s running mate as Vice President and said that voters must choose between one of the two for the top spot on the fall ticket. In his words with a slight attitude, “I don’t know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to the person who is first place…and I am not running for vice president, I am running for president of the United States of America.” Here is the video.

The New York Times at its Best (Indeed)

February 26th, 2008 Billy Hallowell

I’m still dumbfounded by the New York Times’ audacious front-page report about Sen. John McCain and an improper relationship he allegedly had with a female lobbyist.  And when I say “dumbfounded” I am not claiming surprise at the clear bias the Times held in what appears to be a very calculated news release; rather, I am referring to the shock I received when I realized that one of the world’s most respected newspapers published a front-page piece that lacks the foundation one would expect to find in a high school research paper.  From the New York Times:

A female lobbyist had been turning up with him at fund-raisers, visiting his offices and accompanying him on a client’s corporate jet. Convinced the relationship had become romantic, some of his top advisers intervened to protect the candidate from himself — instructing staff members to block the woman’s access, privately warning her away and repeatedly confronting him, several people involved in the campaign said on the condition of anonymity.

McCain takes strong Command, Conservatives Mad!

February 6th, 2008 Urban Conservative

John McCain

John McCain basically swept Super Tuesday and made him all but unstoppable.  He was able to rack up enough convention delegates in Super Tuesday’s voting to put him within arms reach of the coveted GOP presidential nomination that eluded him eight long years ago.

McCain led among moderate Republicans of course, while Romney held strong support from conservative Republicans, according to early results of exit polling in 16 states for the AP and television networks.
