The Conservative Case Against McCain - 2008

John Hawkins at Right Wing News points out why John McCain would be a poor choice as the Republican nominee for POTUS in 2008, the topics he touches on are:

-The Age Issue
-How Electable Is McCain Really?
-What's Wrong With Actually Having A Loyal Republican As The Republican Nominee?
-How Can You Be Pro-Life And Pro-Roe v. Wade At The Same Time?
-Kyoto By Any Other Name Would Still Smell As Rotten
-McCain Vs. The Bush Tax Cuts
-McCain May Not Like Bush's Tax Cuts, But He Loves Illegal Immigration
-The Gang-Of-14 Disaster
-The McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Debacle


John McCain's signature piece of legislation is the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Bill which is one of the worst pieces of legislation to make it through Congress in the last decade. The idea behind this nightmarish piece of legislation, which was a failure on every level, was that it was going to, "take the money out of politics." Well, not only did McCain-Feingold fail to, "take the money out of politics," more money was spent than ever in the 2004 elections. Moreover, the bill unconstitutionally curbed free speech, protected incumbents, gave a fund raising edge to the Democrats, and opened up the door to regulating bloggers. If McCain says that he'll do for America what he did for campaign finance reform, it should be taken as a threat.

Aren't you tired of the "maverick" label? He is anything but.
