    Not to worry Ken if he is as old and out of it as everyone is suggesting, he will not wake up when the phone rings so we will be safe. :thumbs:

    A profoundly thoughtless piece, heavy on rhetoric and light on analysis.

    The piece ends with this:
    "The election in November should come down to foreign policy. John McCain lacks the temperament, knowledge, and philosophy necessary to be a wise military commander-in-chief. He is the last person who should be answering any 3am phone calls at the White House."

    And my question is, who does the author think is the FIRST person--out of the list of three current potential presidential candidates--that should be called? If it all boils down to foreign policy for the writer, "who you gonna call?".....and why are they the better choice?

    It was interesting to note who published this: "Anti-war.com" Thank goodness we have no bias in this report!

    I did notice this paragraph:
    "Independents long ago turned against the Iraq war, but they broke for McCain in every Republican primary in which they could vote. He took almost half of the antiwar independents in New Hampshire, for instance."

    The question is why did Independents and Dems vote for McCain? Simple to keep a real conservative off the Republican ballot. Looks like that worked.

    At the moment, I'm not sure who I will vote for. We will just have to wait and see who else will be on the ballot in NY.

    I am not a "warmonger" and I support John McCain. Posting an article from an anti-war website and attempting to pass it off as "fact" is simply laughable. John McCain will do a much better job as commander and chief than Obama or Hillary ever could. Mainly Obama. We have had 8 years of an inexperienced president with Bush, we can't afford 4 more with Obama. At this moment in history we need experience and maturity.

    The answer: They didn't. Democrats have been too busy with their own exciting nomination race and independents have by and large been voting in the Democratic primaries/caucuses.

    No, conservatives in the GOP have only themselves to blame for the nomination of Senator McCain.
