I loved this headline from Breitbart: "McCain Tries to Assuage Conservatives."
Here's what the article says:
To assuage conservatives, McCain has rolled out endorsements from leading conservatives and aired a new television ad that mentions Ronald Reagan. He plans to attend a major gathering of conservatives later this month.
The time to "assuage conservatives" was when McCain might have asked himself, "Should I respect the First Amendment, or should I trample it by restricting free speech with my McCain-Feingold bill?"
The time to "assuage conservatives" might have been when the vote came up to deny legal status to illegal aliens convicted of crimes.
The time to "assuage conservatives" might have been when the embryonic Stem Cell Research Act came up for a vote.
The time to "assuage conservatives" might have been when the Federal Marriage Amendment came up for a vote.
The time to "assuage conservatives" might have been when a resolution to define marriage as between one man and one woman came up.
Any one (or more) of these would have been great opportunities to "assuage conservatives," but John McCain passed them up.
Now he wants the vote of conservatives, and he wants to "assuage conservatives" with words.
Is anybody besides me sick and tired of liberals trying to pass themselves off as conservatives in the Republican Party?
