Skip to comments.McCain on Palin: 'Let's come up with a winning combination next time' [next time???]
Posted on 10/11/2009 6:53:02 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," the Arizona Republican said: "When we selected, or asked, Sarah Palin to be my running mate, it energized our party. We were ahead in the polls, until the stock market crashed. And she still is a formidable force in the Republican Party. And I have great affection for her. Will Sarah and I - did we always agree on everything in the past? Will we in the future? No. But let's let a thousand flowers bloom. Let's come up with a winning combination next time."

Sorry, McAmnesty. She wasn’t the handicap on the ticket!
McCain may have just revealed something for us in his language.
Okay, McLame. How about you grow a pair of testicles and start defending her over the idiots who ran YOUR campaign?
My respect for you would go up 1000% if you did that.
I’ve got my problems with Bush but only a moron blames his failings on evangelism. Those who do, belong at DU or somewhere else where that anti christian bigotry is welcome.
Or better yet, maybe they can hike up their man panties and tell us how Bush’s evangelism is at fault.
Full disclosure, I’m a Methodist.
“If McCain is casually using Maoist language on Palin...”
There’s no “if” about it! See my post #36. Key link: http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/226950.html
This is a HUGE deal. Not hugh and series, but genuinely huge! Unfortunately it is a Sunday night, so this might get lost down the memory hole.
Someone, anyone, everyone, PLEASE ping whomever you can so that this gets exposure. It might just be enough to end McCan’t’s political career. PLEASE! He’s done too much damage already!
What kind of moron confuses a political ideology and a theology?
Bush was a shallow thinking evangelical and didn't govern as a Republican.
Theologically, he's an evangelical. Ideologically, he is a RINO. But being an evangelical was all some people needed to hear -- and it wound up costing the Republican party.
Bush was a christian conservative and one of the biggest RINOs ever.
How did his religious leanings have anything to do with his failings?
McCain’s political capital that he gained through conspiracy with the NeoCom media is spent. He was nothing more than a spoiler for Obama. His handlers picked Sarah, because they misjudged her. They figured she would hurt McCain, and his loss could be blamed on her, serving both their purpose of electing Obama and hurting conservatism. Their little plan backfired, and they have done everything they can to destroy Sarah. It’s desperation.
I think it may have to be reposted on its own thread as a vanity.
Could you (or someone else)? I’m posting from my phone, and it’s tough enough to even post comments with links, let alone new threads. Feel free to copy anything I said if it would be useful, of course!
If someone else won’t, I will.
McLoser and the rest of the gutless republicans MADE the republican party the THIRD party.
Bush is a CRINO (Christian in name only).
He has no idea who Christ really is. (judging by his public statements anyway) No Evangelical Christian thinks Allah and God are one and the same. Allah is one of the fallen angels.
some body PLEASE shut him up
I think he suspects what will be in Palin’s book
I hope she hammers him
McCain was not dissing Palin in that statement. He admitted that it was Sarah that had energized the campaign.
Your post says it all: he suspended the debate and he rushed where fools go and came out like a smelly fool.
What a debacle that was.
They didn't have anything to do with his failings.
Those that failed the Republican Party were evangelicals that picked Bush in the primaries simply because he was an evangelical.
Well it should be obvious by now that being an evangelical doesn't necessarily make a person a good president. Yet here were are talking about Palin in 2012 all because the evangelicals think shes just swell. And yet again, that's all they seem to care about. Palin is a nice person. Sure. But she's just as shallow as Bush. She'd be another disaster.
We could always nominate Huckabee :)
