The only good advice Bob Dole or John McCain could ever offer about how to send an incumbent president packing would be “don’t listen to Bob Dole or John McCain’s advice”:

Sen. John McCain acknowledged Sunday he’s concerned about the increasing odds that President Barack Obama will be reelected.

“I think there’s reason to be concerned about it,” McCain said on ABC’s “This Week,” referring to the heightened negativity in the GOP presidential primary race. “I’ve been in very tough campaigns. I don’t think I’ve seen one that was as personal, and characterized by so many attacks, as these are. Frankly, one of the reasons is the super PACs.”

McCain’s actual concern has nothing to do with the final four candidates still going at each other this far into primary season — it’s that his GOP establishment candidate of choice isn’t being allowed to run away with the nomination as many had predicted. McCain and Dole worried that the Republicans are doing something wrong is the best evidence there’s something going right.

    You are exactly right, Doug; equate what ever McLame says with that of the libs, the opposite is true !

    Let`s send him over to Afghanistan to do that talking he thinks we should be doing with the Taliban; you know, the ones Bite Me Biden thinks aren`t our enemies !

    By all means McCain, advise Romney on how to win a presidential election as a conservative Republican…you were so successful at it the last couple of times you tried.

    Would this be the same Juan McLame that said after the 2008 election that he was ready and eager to help him in every way he could? Would that be the same one?

    Mmm Hmmm ! Same one !

    McLame also wants to arm the Syrian rebels, in spite of warnings from our intelligence agencies that say al qaeda is acting among those same rebels !

    McCain’s actual concern has nothing to do with the final four candidates still going at each other this far into primary season — it’s that his GOP establishment candidate of choice isn’t being allowed to run away with the nomination as many had predicted. McCain and Dole worried that the Republicans are doing something wrong is the best evidence there’s something going right.

    Exactly.

    Mitt Romney wants to be the next president of a country in need of serious and sweeping economic reform. And here are the first two points in his 59-point economic plan:

    1. Maintain current tax rates on personal income
    2. Maintain current tax rates on interest, dividends, and capital gains

    Now imagine private-equity boss Romney back at Bain Capital sitting down to read his team’s 59-point turnaround plan for some troubled widget maker. And imagine if the first two action items started with the phrase “Maintain current ….” Romney probably wouldn’t bother reading any further before tossing the report in the trash, calling a meeting, and cracking heads. Heck, if Private Equity Romney were called in to turn around Romney Campaign Inc., axing CEO Romney might be the first move on his to-do list—especially after looking at last night’s numbers from Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri.

    The reason Romney hasn’t ended this thing in a walk is that he hasn’t successfully sold himself to the base or the country. He has simply not delivered as a salesman of his ideas or himself. For someone who's been compared time and again to a used BMW salesman, he is stuck in the same pandering rut that prevented him from closing the deal last time around.

    I saw this post at MM`s, but by the time I read it, the timing was all off. Timing IS the key to comedy after all. Seeing it here, I had to speak !

    Rombama is just not different enough from Obamney ! No thanks ! I`ll take Santorum !

    Those little nags. Those wretched little red flags that pop up every time someone’s name is spoken or referenced. Those something’s that don’t actually have a home anywhere back there in the nebulae of the nothingness of the mind so they’re stuck in an unlit closet back there somewhere. It’s the invisible “dark matter” of intuition.

    They’re the bells that just don’t ring true. They’re the unanswerable questions that are never assuaged regardless of how many times we hear the responses.

    How can a true Conservative be elected governor of the most liberal state east of California?
    Why would a true Conservative author and set up a socialist medical system in his state of governance?
    But, Mormon’s are really masqueraders of Christianity, aren’t they? People masquerading as something they’re not?

    Crappy RINOS trying to browbeat the grassroots. That's what this is. Such a bunch of prigs, and might I add, losers.

    The most positive candidate has been Santorum. Has he gotten as much as a mention from loser McCain? No, sir.

    While initially 'horrified' by the Soft Coup (TM) the Republican Establishment found there ARE a few things about it they 'did' like?

    Cattle prodding unpopular legislation through during the 11th hour for one! Some great investigation stalling tactics too. And what career politician isn't wild about having citizens so painted into a corner they're forced to petition to get their RIGHTS back?

    So there's lots of things the GOP secretly admires about O'Marcos' approach to Rule by Presidential Decree. They just want a different Decreer.
