How Obama Got Elected
Posted 20 November 2008 - 01:47 PM
McCain sponsored the Kennedy-McCain amnesty for illegal aliens bill, The McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill and McCain-Lieberman gun show "loophole" bill that would have closed all gun shows. Then he expected conservative Republicans to rally around him because he was the lesser of two evils.
In a word, McCain was not electable. I voted for Palin as did a lot of Republicans I know.

Been a Republican for 50 years and during that time the party never ran a candidate so controversial as McCain.......
I think Goldwater takes the cake in being the most controversial in the last 50 years, pro-abortion, (board settings block the correct spelling) Gaaay rights, and the role of religion on public life. He was also an opponent on the civil rights movement. He only won his home state AZ and a few southern states (possibly for his civil rights stance). It's a shame PA's own Bill Scranton didn't win the Republican endorsement, but he only decided to run 6 weeks before the '64 Rep. convention only because he didn't like the direction the republican party was heading with the possibility of Goldwater winning.
