    This Republican does. Every time that jay bird opens his mouth he makes it harder for me to stomach my vote in November.

    All you have to do to settle your stomach is think about the alternatives.

    Democrats are ten times worse.

    Any others are simply unelectable. If it makes you feel better, you can help place a democrat in office by voting for one of them.

    Doublespeak alert!

    This man is not speaking the truth.

    Inducing fear and timidity into a population that just happens to have the world's sweetest militarized police force and spying on citizens without warrants is not freedom. It's tyranny and it's the norm throught history.

    The noble lie is thousands of years old. And we still believe it every time. Maybe that's why it's so old?

    Top that propaganda Rev!. :laugh:

    I was wondering if somebody would jump on this. I wonder how McCain is feeling about reaching out, now ?

    "So, what I want to do today is take a little time to describe what I would hope to have achieved at the end of my first term as President. I cannot guarantee I will have achieved these things."


    An endline goal does not a timetable make.

    I have a difficult time getting on the McCain bandwagon because he is a liberal Republican - certainly less liberal that his Democratic opponents - and much farther to the left than I want to see in the White House. I don't really like any of the candidates from any of the parties - large or small - right now.

    But I have to agree that he only stated what he hopes would be reality by 2013 - at the end of his first term - not a detailed "timetable" for troop withdrawal that could give comfort and patience to the enemy. Who doesn't "hope" to achieve a complete end to the war except perhaps our enemy? I still much prefer his early statements to keep after it a 100 years if that's what it takes.

    I hope I'm raptured soon. The longer this goes, the more I see that I am only a visitor on this planet, this world is not my home and my forefathers would turn over in their graves if they knew our only choices left on Election Day are evil and the lesser evil. It's probably already been electronically decided anyway, and we will go through the motions again living in our illusion that we are a Republic.....I mean, the rest of you will. I don't intend to vote.

    I know I have to vote for him, I just don't like it......And I like it less each time he speaks.

    As long as people keep voting for what they don't want, then they will keep on getting what they don't want.

    I feel sorry for conservatives as they seem to be content to just keep on voting on how much they will lose on policy positions. It seems like 99% of the time they are voting against someone, not for someone. That is a sad position to be in - to vote in such a negative way.

    Or they can do like you do.

    Compromise their values (if they can figure out what they are) and pretend the candidate they select has them.

    Amen to that. This is a sad excuse for a Republican nominee.

    Not to worry Ken, now that McCain has a time table, you can now change your support to him. (again)

    I did not support Senator John Sidney McCain III in 2000, I have not supported him during this election cycle, and I will not support him during this election cycle.
