Why I'm not voting for McCain

129 posts in this topic

Snipped and artfully edited by me from the CNN web site.

John McCain issued a promise Tuesday that may cause a bit of unrest with a broad swath of voters:

He'll veto every single beer?

While railing against excessive earmarks at the National Small Business Summit in Washington, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee inadvertently pledged to veto the popular alcoholic beverage.

"I will use the veto as needed. I will veto every single beer"

OK, so not only will he veto any beer, but he will be appointing Supreme Court justices that share his same view.

Edit: well I guess you'll just have to cut and past the link as I could not figure it out.

Here I thought it was because he thought Putin was the president of Germany. The guy must be having a senior momement or two out on the trail. First the Sunni/[PoorWordUsage]e confusion and now this. I thought his strength was foreign policy.... I would hate to see where his weaknesses are...

As much as I think he is WAY TOO OLD and about as boring and uninspiring as he is, I'll vote for him long before the folks that think the government should control everything like Healthcare and the like.

I had a lot of admiration for him as well, particularly during the 2000 presidential run. He has really sold out since then to the "Agents of Intolerance" etc.

How did the party of Teddy Roosevelt and Eisenhower get hijacked by these nuts?

Why is everyone against the gov. running health care? They do a good job at defending the country don't they?? They do a good job at monitoring and securing the countrys economy. There is very little turmoil in this country. I can [PoorWordUsage] in my toilet and it goes away. I can boil my water in the morning for coffee. I'm free to hop on 169 and drive to work. Think about it...we already pay for RETIREES, GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES both City,County,Federal, Education, POOR, DISABLED ETC.,. Would it really be that much more to cover. Now I do believe we should have a mechanisim where everyone pays something into the system though.

That "out of touch jerk-bait" spent several years in the Hanoi Hilton, during another unpopular war. As far as understanding POWs, he knows a little more about the thing than most of us on this Board combined.

He's not my guy, politically speaking, but a little respect for someone who has experienced stuff most of us simply can't imagine is in order.

I know we're not supposed to engage in personal attacks, but this time I will make an exception.

You are woefully ignorant, and need a lesson or two on respect, or at least be required to demonstrate a rudimentary understanding of what you are talking about.

Pathetic.

How did the party of Teddy Roosevelt and Eisenhower get hijacked by these nuts?

and how did the party of harry truman and hubert humphrey, the party my folks used to belong to, get hijacked by the likes of barak hussein obama and micheal moore?

i dont care for mccain but as long as obama and his merry band of revolutionaries are on the opposite ticket, i am going to have to vote for mccain. or at least vote against obama

and how is it that BHO gets to tell the press that they cannot talk about his, "friends," they cannot bring up his many gaffes, we cannot talk about his wife's comments, even though she can go out and talk about both mccain and clinton, his far left voting record, his comments about middle american voters, or anything else that could harm him and the press dutifully complies??? what do you think the press would do if mccain tried to tell the press that they cannot bring up his involvement in the Keating 5 or the problems with his wife???

now the democrats are at risk of losing the WH this year with their candidate when they were almost guaranteed to walk right in it because of GWB. they're just as dumb as the GOP

I've said it before for GWB, the lack of respect some people show for ones in office is obsurd. This guy fought for our country and was a POW, something myself or I'm sure you could never imagine. If he want's to joke about it, maybe that's his way of dealing with the nightmares he has for serving you. I haven't watched that video and nor will I. I'm sure I could search youtube as well and find all kinds of junk on Obama as well. Show some respect and some class.

I don't like either candidate either.

I have said it before, and I will say it again; why can't we get one candidate that is any good?

I will vote foe McCain, but it is not really a vote for him. It is a vote against Obama.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

The trolls should start showing up any day now trying to sway the right on this board to vote for Obama. It happens every election. Then the day after the election, they disappear.

Are you serious? I hope you are maxing out your 401K or IRAs.

Welfare, which was designed to be a stop gap, is now reaching out to 4th generation families?

Low Cost Housing Projects?

VA Hospitals?

Social Security Disability? A friend of mine recently died from lung cancer. After working his entire life and contributing 7.65% of his income to S/S, he was unable to collect disability for the 6 months he had left to live in order to pay his insurance. Even had a note from his doctor. He was deemed still capable to work.

Medicare & Medicaid?

Ya, I think the government would be great at running health care.

As someone who has parents on Medicare, it is horrible. They can hardly live on SS and Medicare. My Dad had cancer and is still trying to pay off bills. They are little to no help. It's better than nothing, but not by much.

    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
