Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

I don’t think its open season on the Republicans, but there is a lot of disappointment and anger from all sides concerning the tone of McCain’s campaign. A very popular Republican, Colin Powell, summed it up very well when he mentioned that their message has become “increasingly narrower” over the last couple of months. He specifically mentioned hearing certain things from senior members of his party concerning many of the issues that have pushed him and others away from this candidate, and his the party.


did you actually say anything?

He could still win, but your reply confirms the issue/problem with his campaign

The McCain of 2000 was the true Maverick. Now he's turned into a pander bear.

During the 1988 Demo primaries, Bruce Babbitt appeared on SNL in a skit. He stands in an express check-out line of the supermarket allowing up to six items with seven in his cart. A confrontation follows, leading to his arrest. Hilarious!
