We are Known by the Company we Keep

I read today that Mitt Romney threw his support to John McCain in McCain's battle to keep his senate seat in Arizona. Romney said of McCain, "...record of service and sacrifice for America is honored by all."

He went on to say, "It's hard to imagine the senate without John McCain."

Hmmmmmm, Gubner, I can imagine the senate without John McCain as a hell of a lot better place for the American people, especially if there was a strong conservative sitting in his place. Gubner, you keep sticking yourself out there as a conservative choice and then you turn around and endorse a squishy RINO...........makes me think you are one yourself!

You can throw someone under the bus and be nice about it. Why couldn't he have said, "John McCain's record of service and sacrifice for America is honored by all, and I love him dearly, but the time has come to put true conservative leadership in the senate. This country must be defended against the Marxist policies of the current administration and the majority. I am giving my full support to J.D. Hayworth."

Now why could he not have said that? Why?

My hope is quickly waning in the folksy Sarah Palin. She also endorsed McCain. She's not even in Warshington (yet) and already she has been enticed by the need for "civility" and "decorum". My friend, Rush Limbaugh says she had no choice. I disagree. As I said, you can throw someone under the bus nicely. When the fiber of this country is at stake, nothing else should matter. As the VP candidate she had to tow the line, but no more. She needs to be speaking out forcefully and truthfully for America!

I groaned when Massachusetts freshman senator, Scott Brown thanked McCain. Now I hear he has voted for cloture on the Jobs Bill..............sigh.

After some of the fine CPAC speeches I was a bit invigorated. Now I'm sliding back into my usual political funk as I watch so called conservatives slide slowly into the mire of RINOdom.

2012 slowly draws closer. Sweet Wifey sez that Barry O. can still win in 2012. As the list of possible Republican choices grows more squishy, I can see this happening.


  1. All that needs to happen is for people to get discouraged, stay away from the polls, or offer up another RINO, and sure -- Obama could win a second term. Wouldn't that be loverly ... for the Progressives, socialists, Leftists, etc.

    Right Truth

  2. Romney has never been a conservative and only wears that labels as the republican primaries draw near, by supporting McCain he has shown his true colors. Like you I support J.D. Hayworth.

  3. I've heard folks say "Romney is the best hope for Republicans in 2012" to that I say BS.

    Romney, Palin, Brown, McCain are all cut from the same cloth. They are against the "D" for party sake not country sake. Until they start upholding core principles of the Republican party, The R"s are doomed to the desert.

    I was too, amped after CPAC, the speeches by GB, and ANN C. were awesome, and then we get snapped back to reality when Brown votes. I think honestly there is a huge disconnect between what the "R"s think we want and what is really wanted.

  4. Thanks everyone for the comments. Looks like there is a consensus on Romney, unlike man made global warming. I fear that we are headed for a second Barry O. term.............I sure am not seeing a Republican I could vote for so far.
