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.

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 Tuesdays 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.

You Decide: Who won the CNN Republican Debate?

January 30th, 2008 Urban Conservative

CNN Republican Debate

Republican presidential candidates will face off Wednesday night (tonight) without a familiar face as Rudy Giuliani is expected to drop out and endorse Senator John McCain.

The remaining candidates (Romney, McCain, Ron Paul and Huckabee) will take the stage in what’s expected to be a heated debate sponsored by CNN, the Los Angeles Times and Politico beginning at 8 p.m. ET .

Romney Supporters: Congrats on the Nevada Landslide Win!

January 22nd, 2008 LAConservative

LAConservativeWe believed in Mitt and Mitt delivered again! (How was it that Ron Paul spanked McCain, Huck, Thompson and Giuliani? Now, how about some more straight talk?  Lets dispel some myths, shall we?

MYTH:  NV is not as important a state as SC.
FACT:  Nevada is infinitely more important, as it is a crucial “purple” swing state in the general election, whereas SC is a solid red state.  The GOP nominee who wins SC will carry SC in the general election no matter what, whereas it takes a STRONG Nevada player to influence that state’s leaning in the generals.  That would be Mitt Romney.  If you believe NV has no significance, than deductively, you do not believe FL will be significant in the primaries, either.

MYTH:  Fred Thompson will endorse John McCain if he drops out.
FACT:  It frankly does not matter whom Fred Thompson endorses.  I personally can’t wait for Fred to drop out, as Romney will pick up votes because they share an overlapping voting bloc.  It will help Romney if Fred endorses McCain.  Thompson’s voters despise McCain; an endorsement would further propel the voters toward Romney.
