how i will support john mccain over hillary clinton

it is highly, highly unlikely i will support john mccain over hillary clinton or barack obama. for me to do so, the following must occur:

(1) john mccain must choose mitt romney as his vice presidential running mate.

(2) i must expect john mccain will die very, very soon (before or shortly after the january 2009 swearing-in ceremony)

otherwise, hillary or barack deserve conservatives’ support. let me explain. if john mccain is the president, it will be harder for conservatives to get their elected officials to oppose his proposals, just as conservatives have struggled to oppose bush’s liberal policies.

if mccain is elected, say hello to amnesty for illegal aliens, questionable judicial appointments, maybe even socialized medicine, and other, similar debacles. if hillary is elected, at least there will be people willing to oppose her (and bill’s) plans.

if it is between mccain and obama, i would still probably prefer obama over mccain. i don’t believe obama is quite as liberal as he has cast himself in his primary campaign. and although both would govern as liberals, barack is at least a likeable man. he hasn’t cheated on his wife and he is a positive guy, and don’t even get me started on the social significance of america electing a visibly multi-racial man as president. as president, he would have the training wheels on for a while, sure. in my opinion, that is better than having nothing but horrible laws to show for 25 years in congress, as in john mccain’s case. i don’t want america run like mccain has run congress for the last quarter century.

there. to sum up this stream-of-consciousness post, i would prefer liberals to get credit for their bad policies or for there to be legislative gridlock until america elects a conservative to govern. if necessary, mitt will be there to pick up the pieces in four years.

  1. I wonder if Romney will get picked. It seems more likely than Huckabee, but I don’t know.

    The fact that Romney has officially endorsed him makes me likely to support McCain. However, its crazy to think that just a couple of weeks ago McCain had been saying Romney supported timetables….

    😐

    Despite this and other “differences” I think that there is a good chance that Romney is serious about the jihadist threat and he wants someone besides Hillary or Obama in the White House as the Iraq conflict shapes the United States policy toward terrorists for the next couple of decades.

    couldn’t agree more! even though I would not like it I would definately take Hillary over him. sad day. and you are spot on in regards to his more liberal policies.

  3. Amen.
