    Reports: McCain Has Picked His VP

    John McCain is expected to reveal his vice-presidential choice on Friday at 11 a.m. during a rally in the critical battleground state of Ohio, according to a report in the International Herald Tribune.

    McCain has indeed decided on his running mate, two Republican strategists in contact with McCain's campaign said Wednesday. His decision has been revealed only to his small inner circle of three or four people -- who have refused all public inquiry on the matter.

    Senator Obama says that instead of worrying about immigrants learning English, Americans "need to make sure your child speaks Spanish.

    We disagree! :BangHead:

    "The Obama campaign knows it can't argue the facts of the link between Obama and Ayers, so it is instead resorting to a desperate campaign of intimidation and legal threats," said Ed Martin, American Issues Project's president. "The scary question this raises is if Barack Obama demonstrates this little regard for free speech from his opponents during the campaign, what could the American people expect from him as a president?"

    According to the report, Republicans close to the campaign said that the top contenders remained the same three men who have been the source of speculation for weeks: former Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and, possibly, Senator Joseph Lieberman, independent of Connecticut.

    As recently as Tuesday, McCain was said to still be entertaining the idea of Lieberman, who was Al Gore's running mate on the Democratic presidential ticket in 2000.

    With the tactical timing of the announcement, McCain is seeking to diminish Barack Obama’s hopes of a bounce in the polls after he accepts the Democratic nomination in Denver Thursday night.

    I hope he nominates Liebermann. That will destroy the republican party, and my god-fearing brothers in Christ will be forced to shake this nation up a little bit.....

    Agreed. I wish SOMETHING would happen to get believers to stop thinking that GOP stands for Gods Own Party.

    I agree. I find the GOP abuse of the abortion issue especially sickening.

    Can you clarify this statement


    What exactly do you mean "will be forced to shake this nation up a little bit...." are you advocating violence or fasting and prayer???

    It will either be Mike Huckabee (yeah right) or someone who will not matter :laugh:

    I must say if we get a good Anti-christian president I could be the best thing to happen to Christianity in this country since the Great Awakening. A persecuted church flourishes.

    My guess is that it will be Pawlenty of Minn. Makes the most sense geographically and politically.

    You just may get your wish. Will you be ready if it happens? It's easy to sit behind a computer and make glib remarks. But are you willing to see your wife raped in front of your eyes by a group of men while you are slowly being hacked to death, having your intestines dug out, and while your children are placed in tires, doused with gasoline, and then lit ablaze with their screams of torment ringing in your ears? Because that is exactly what some of your brothers and sisters in Christ have gone through and are going through this very moment. Be careful what you wish for.

    My guess is Pawlenty, but geography has nothing to do with it. The idea that a VP is picked for geography is an antiquated notion. The states are too red/blue for it to matter.

    I would love to see a VP debate between Huckabee and Biden though. :thumbs:

    One of the things I see every month when I read my Voice of the Martyrs Magazine is how God is at work. No I don't want to see anything bad happen to anyone, BUT the fact remains that the foundation of the church is built on the blood of the martyrs. YES I would die for Christ in split second, hopefully any Christian would. A Christan's focus should not be on what happen to us....... As the Moravians stated "let the Lamb that was slain receive the reward for His suffering".........by any means.........Blessed are the persecuted......

    If my comments offend you I apologise, (maybe I should have kept them to myself) but I will not recant

    You don't think having Pawlenty on the ticket would help sway Minnesota? Bush only lost Minn. by 4 or 5 points. With two populists on the ticket, I could very well see Minnesota going Red. And if that happens, that means McCain only needs Ohio or Florida - not both of them. Not to mention, it could also help with Iowa and Wisc. - two other swing states.
