Transcript from ABC’s “This Week” with host George Stephanopoulos and guest John McCain.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me switch to the politics of the Republican Party. You said, after the election, that Governor Palin has a bright future in your party. Does that mean that, if she does choose to run for president, she can count on your support?
MCCAIN: Oh, no. Listen, I have the greatest appreciation for Governor Palin and her family, and it was a great joy to know them. She invigorated our campaign. She was just down in Georgia and invigorated their campaign. But I can't say something like that. We've got some great other young governors. I think you're going to see the governors assume a greater leadership role in our Republican Party. Pawlenty, Huntsman...
STEPHANOPOULOS: But why not? (inaudible) she was the best person...
MCCAIN: Sure. Yes.
STEPHANOPOULOS: ... to succeed you if something had happened to you?
MCCAIN: But now we're in a whole election cycle. Have no doubt of my admiration and respect for her and my view of her viability, but at this stage, again...my corpse is still warm, you know?
The audacity of McCain being sexist is unfounded. This dumbass Senator from Arizona chose to support Sarah Palin to be his running mate, but will not support her if she ran for the presidency in 2012. Just read the transcript. It is quite obvious that RINOs try to retain their existence in Congress by piggy backing themselves with the Conservative base. This could lead conspiracy theorist to believe that RINOs were embedded into the Conservative Party by Democrats who want Conservatives to lose elections.
It was a mistake to support McCain because he ran a pitiful campaign, late in attacking his opponent, and weak in explaining his message. Screw with crossing party lines. Appeasing and going against the fundamental value of the Conservative base is just being a hypocrite. Just seeing RINOs favoring a moderate “middle-of-the-road” philosophy and pretending to be conservative only confuses the voters to lean Democrat. Look at the past two elections we had to see my point. This middle of the road “bullshit” only makes our Conservative cause difficult to maintain.
I blame McCain and his inept campaign people for losing this past election. Not only had this geezer fooled the American people that he could beat Obama, he made the entire Conservative movement look like idiots with his stupid middle-of-the-road message. By having McCain imply that Palin is not a good choice to run for the presidency, only solidifies my support for her even more. She speaks without stuttering. She is full of vigor, in tip-top shape, and charismatic like Reagan. She has demonstrates that deeds and actions speak louder than words. Not being spoiled by the cesspool of Washington politics and being an outsider, Palin shows that she cares about the country and not her own selfish interest. Besides, Palin is not afraid to express her passion against her opponent. That is why she called a “Pit Bull with Lipstick.”
The only way to bring Conservatives back into the mainstream is to get rid of McCain and his fellow RINOs out of Congress. These RINOs are a bunch of sorry asses!
