    A video by a Ron Paul supporter, featuring mostly right wingers accusing McCain of various things.

    http://www.jedreport.com/2008/06/brutal.html

    Also, John McCain's first wife speaks out:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1024927/The-wife-John-McCain-callously-left-behind.html

    ‘My marriage ended because John McCain didn’t want to be 40, he wanted to be 25. You know that happens...it just does.’

    Some of McCain’s acquaintances are less forgiving, however. They portray the politician as a self-centred womaniser who effectively abandoned his crippled wife to ‘play the field’. They accuse him of finally settling on Cindy, a former rodeo beauty queen, for financial reasons.

    McCain was then earning little more than £25,000 a year as a naval officer, while his new father-in-law, Jim Hensley, was a multi-millionaire who had impeccable political connections.

    Interesting, but an ex-wife and a die-hard Ron Paul supporter? Not the most credible of sources I'm afraid. But there will be a lot of righties unhappy with McCain.

    Those are all the things that make a successful American Politician.

    If you watched the video by the Ron Paul supporter, you would have seen that it presented a very much right wing perspective, using McCain's own words, as well as comments from various prominent right-wingers, soldiers, libertarians, etc.

    Yep. McCain's not a sweet guy. Then again, I haven't liked him since...forever. Literally, as long as I can remember.

    BTW--how did a Paul supporter get to be considered a "rightie"?

    I don't like McCain, either. But, I like Obama even less.

    Well, Paul is only liberal on the Iraq War, but even there it's not because the war is wrong or because war is wrong, it's because he doesn't believe the US should spend money in that way. My guess is he would have even opposed our entering WWI, and probably have been among those Repubicans who were very unenthusiastic about WWII because of their isolationist principles. Also, Paul through is libertarian philosophy opposes government aid to the needy, government programs that support the arts and culture, and so on. And, also he did put out a racist newsletter. He is also anti-abortion, though he does seem to favor gay marriage.

    Anyone who has paid any attention knows that most Republicans don't like McCain that much but he's a far better choice than The Prince and he was probably the most electable Republican in a tough year for Republicans. There's little point in threads saying how McCain isn't the perfect candidate for Republicans when it's well known.

    I did. A Ron Paul guy DOES come from a right wing perspective; a pretty far out one considering what the political middle today. And John McCain really isn't right-wing about much. I don't really need other people to tell me what I think of each of these candidates anyway, I do my own research. If your point was to show that many in the right wing are dissatisfied with McCain though, you're right.

    You could have spared us all 120 seconds of reading, by simply typing:

    "Ron Paul is angry, white, and old."

    :D

    McCain vs Prince Obama.

    Yuck !

    McCain will probably get my vote, because he is the lesser of the two evils.
    Not that my vote matters..... I live in Massachusetts.

    I still cannot believe Massachusetts voted for Reagan over Jimmy Carter.
    The 1980 Massachusetts residents were far smarter than the 2008 residents.

    If they bought into Deval's Hope, I am sure they will love the Change campaign.

    McCain will not increase foreign aid to 50 billion per year by 2012.
    McCain does not plan to increase the capital gains tax.
    McCain wants to make the Bush tax cuts permanent.
    Obama plans to increase foreign aid to 50 billion per year by 2012.
    Obama plans to increase the capital gains tax.
    Obama will let all of the Bush tax cuts expire.

    I have yet to find McCains view on the Global Poverty Act.
    Obama is the sponsor of the Global Poverty act which would cost us
    65 billion extra per year over the 50 biliion Obama already plans on giving away.
    The wost part of the global poverty act, is that we will allow the UN to distribute the money.

    Global Poverty is a major concern. When we gave Haiti a couple billion
    dollars, the money never made it to the people that needed the money.
    I have zero faith that the UN will propely distribute the money so that
    it gets to the people that need it most.

    Is that good enough Nem?

    That is pretty weak. I am going to bed. I will reply tomorrow. Very weak though, very very weak. And entirely wrong, merely republican brainwashing talking points.

    Just out of curiosity, seeing as you have only been a member here since February of this year, what do you know of Nem? Lay it all out to enlighten me. Be specific and detailed. And tell us where,and how, you received your information. Inquiring minds want to know.

    It must be difficult to be a rightie, as at the conclusion of the republican primaries is putting up a less than perfect candidate in such a needy time.... one would think that it would be a good time to put a perfect one on the ballot.

    I do not remember one perfect candidate in my lifetime.
    Obama is far from perfect if you turn away from the left wing media.

    Baggage... Obama has plenty.
    He never passed on bill as senator.
    His wife hates America and white people (Her Thesis at Princeton).
    His church embraces the racist Black Liberation Theology.
    He has a friendship radical activist William Ayers who founded the radical
    weatherman group.

    He is far from perfect....
