The Switch to McCain

I'm going to take a little heat from some people with regard to this decision, which you have probably noticed already due to the new layout here at To The Right of Wrong. It had to be done, and I'm urging Independents, Moderates, Republicans, Conservatives, and Libertarians everywhere to join me in supporting John McCain in his bid for the position of President of the United States. The time has come to support the nominee in waiting.

Gov. Mitt Romney was extremely gracious today in his exit speech given at CPAC, and I suspect we will see him again in the very near future. He ran a wonderful campaign and I commend him for his commitment to America and the people of this great land. Gov. Romney is a true American and person of high integrity and I thank him for his commitment to the Conservative movement and to the democratic process that makes this Republic great. His speech today was one of the best political speeches I have ever seen and I have an enormous amount of respect for Gov. Mitt Romney.

Up until recently, I was supporting Gov. Mike Huckabee, but the situation deems it necessary for Gov. Huckabee to step aside and I'm sure that will not be long now. Gov. Huckabee showed this nation what a grass roots movement truly is about. He represented so many ideas and backed the strongest of moral positions that make this nation great. I have strong reason to believe that Gov. Huckabee is in solid position to be a strong consideration for the Vice President position on McCain's ticket. That being said, it serves no purpose for James Dobson to come out and endorse him today. Why? At this point, with the money machine in full force for the Clintons and Barack Obama, extending the race does nothing more than help the Democrats, a point Gov. Romney made strongly in his exit speech today.

Sen. McCain has been very cordial and praising of Gov. Huckabee, a testament to the Gov. Huckabee's political skills and his innate ability to connect with the average American and what a great number of us hold dear. Gov. Huckabee has likewise been extremely gracious towards Sen. McCain, but to continue the race at this point is simply detrimental in that the limited resources of both candidates will continue to dwindle and while Gov. Huckabee is a great, great candidate, he will not generate 65% of each race from here on out. That's simply realistic. I am happy to have been a strong part of the Huckabee revolution, and what we accomplished with what we had is something truly remarkable.

Back in 2000, I had actually supported Sen. McCain over then Gov. George W. Bush. I've always liked McCain, while tending to have policy disagreements with him, he did what he thought was right and damn the consequences and damn his personal relationships. To some that is something negative. To me, it's a breath of fresh air. It is a testament to the the character of man who would face scorn from his closest friends to do what he truly feels is the right thing to do. That says something strong about the man.

Sen. McCain is committing to defeating the Islamic radicals who have declared way on our very way of life. He knows first hand the toll that war takes. He is a noted Pork Buster, and if my favorite Senator, Tom Coburn, is fully on board, that's just gravy on top. Sen. McCain often raises a voice of reason in a Senate that has been having a love affair with Pork regardless of which party they are in. Sen. McCain fights that battle every time. He will fight against government waste stronger than he has before when he becomes President. He is committed to Iraq. I believe he has learned the lesson of the failed immigration bill, and he will help to rejuvenate our party and add to our numbers.

I strongly encourage you to visit his website. You can also check out a very, very, close personal friend of mine who is helping Sen. McCain's effort if you'd like as well. I'll leave you with some videos of Sen. McCain. IT'S TIME TO RALLY, SENATOR McCAIN IS OUR LAST HOPE AGAINST THE LEFTIST AND DEFEATIST SCOURGE THAT IS BARRELING TOWARDS US.
