The McCain Record

There are some who claim that we're opposing McCain based upon marching orders.

Oh, I don't know, you see some of us actually research our candidate. I had no idea you would support an anti gun candidate. Yes, I can prove that statement. McCain voted against tabling a motion that would extend and enhance the brady gun law.

You remember the Brady gun law right? Well, Johnny wanted to enhance it more than that to extend to Federal Control of all gun shows. Yeah, he's about as conservative as my cat.

Voted against barring criminal illegal immigrants from becoming citizens. That's right, Old Johnnie voted against the amendment that would have prevented violent criminals and pedophiles from becoming citizens if they were illegal immigrants.

That's after he voted in 1996 to increase penalties on illegal immigrants, but in 2006 he voted to ignore those same increased penalties he voted in. He must have voted in 1996 knowing that the stiffer penalties would never be enforced.

The McCain record also includes his complete intolerance of anyone who doesn't agree with him or God forbid doesn't put him in the spotlight properly. "It was election night 1986, and John McCain had just been elected to the U.S. Senate for the first time. Even so, he was not in a good mood. McCain was yelling at the top of his lungs and poking the chest of a young Republican volunteer who had set up a lectern that was too tall for the 5-foot-9 politician to be seen to advantage, according to a witness to the outburst. 'Here this poor guy is thinking he has done a good job, and he gets a new butt ripped because McCain didn't look good on television,' Jon Hinz told a reporter Thursday. At the time, Hinz was executive director of the Arizona Republican Party. ... Hinz said McCain's treatment of the young campaign worker in 1986 troubled him for years. 'There were an awful lot of people in the room,' Hinz recalled. 'You'd have to stick cotton in your ears not to hear it. He (McCain) was screaming at him, and he was red in the face. It wasn't right, and I was very upset at him.'" (Kris Mayes and Charles Kelly, "Stories Surface On Senator's Demeanor," The Arizona Republic, 11/5/99)

John McCain may be a lot of things, but he's no conservative, and those of us who oppose him, aren't taking our marching orders, we're researching the positions, the statements and know why we oppose him. Why do you support him? Let me guess, you can link to dozens of polls pushed by the media about his electability right?
