An Okie softens my view of McCain?

Well, I didn’t even dream of this  happening in the past few days……but it may be quite ironic that it would take a conservative, pro-life Okie to soften my view of McCain!

Tom Coburn (Senator from Oklahoma) has endorsed John McCain and he introduced McCain at CPAC today.  You can see the video here at  I must say his introduction certainly approached McCain in way that very well could convince even the most staunch anti-McCain people that maybe we could look at McCain a little more positively… least maybe we can loosen a bit the plug on our noses when we vote in November.  (a reference to McCain’s own 95-year-old mother saying, “holding their nose they’re going to have to take him”)

 Time will tell how I end up feeling about McCain in November, but Tom Coburn did help me climb a little further out of the political doldrums today!

  1. He is still who he is: a pro-immigration fanatic with no respect for other conservatives.

  2. Mr. Roach, I don’t disagree with you. I think, like most people, I am sifting through the inevitable situation of voting for a liberal (D) or a liberal (R) in November; as well as the consequences of what harm this election is thrusting upon true conservatives.
    I will say that Tom Coburn did a good job of pointing out areas for which I can agree with McCain and where McCain differs with Obama and Hillary.
    I am by no means pro-McCain because of Coburn’s speech, but that information has now been thrown into the mix of thoughts that will be spinning in my brain between now and November.
    By the way, I read some of your blog. I didn’t have time to read alot but you have some interesting thoughts….I’ll be back. Thanks for reading my blog.

  3. Conservatives are beginning to amaze me in their inability to see what’s really at stake here. This election is about more than McCain and his inability to follow conservative principals.

    How is handing the whole country over to liberals a suitable alternative to McCain?

    There is a serious difference between McCain and a purebread liberal who is bent on destroying ALL conservative values as well as our country with them.

    Anti McCain commentators such as Rush Limbaugh have ventured the idea that perhaps we should sit this election out and let the Dems have a term in office, claiming it might pave the way for a future shot at a candidate he and others will like in four years.

    Imagine the damage our country will endure if Democrats control all three branches of government for 4 to 8 years.

    This would give liberals what they will treat as a clear sign from America that is it ready to move sharply to the left. Not slightly to the left.

    Cherry picking our candidate is exactly what got us INTO this mess, and if conservatives aren’t careful, they will throw the entire country into a liberal free for all…

    There is no such thing as a quick recovery from 4 years of liberalism unchecked. We may be facing what will take years and years of damage to undo. What’s more, there’s no guarantee that it WILL be undone. Have conservatives completely forgotten Roe v. Wade and other extremely important issues? We need an allie on every core issue we can get.

    Questioning McCain was right and highly useful for a time and a season. Many of us wish we had acted sooner to support Romney or Huck….

    But staying home on election day allows liberals a pass to capture all THREE branches of Government. Do you want your kids growing up in that kind of environment?

    I’m not asking anyone to sacrifice their own belief or convictions, but we have a serious serious problem here, that we can’t afford to fall asleep on.

    Give it some thought, friends.

  4. You all are acting like conservatism is some sort of religion. It is is politics.

    Sharprightturn commented earlier that she was thankful for GW because the alternative could have been president Gore/Kerry… You won’t always get everything what you want in an mainstream candidate, especially those who live on the edges (far right or far left). However, wouldn’t you rather have President McCain than Obama or Clinton? I would.. Trust me..there is a difference!
