HAS THE MCCAIN BUBBLE BURST?

When Senator John McCain appeared at the Conservative party conference in Bournemouth last October as the presumptive next president of the US, the stars seemed fixed in the firmament for him. The myth of McCain appeared as invincible as ever. -Guardian Unlimited

Why is everyone questioning Romney's commitment to the GOP based on things he said while running for office in the most liberal state in the union years ago and in spite of the fact that he was the most conservative governor MA has had in 40 years while McCain has repeatedly betrayed the GOP, made deragatory comments about Christians, and once told a staffer (rumor has it) that he would consider running as Hillary's VP if the Republicans deny him the nomination again. Cardinal O'Malley in Boston has said that Romney was a better friend to the Cathollic church than any other MA governor in decades, and he was about the only one that wasn't Catholic. I'd like to see the press pointing these things out. Nobody is talking about the economy and Romney's qualifications there either.

Will Christians and the GOP really support McCain? I think a lot of it is a thin disguise for anti-Mormon bigotry, and that the Republican party risks shooting itself in the foot if it embraces it. The weight of the logic behind different theologies is not an issue that matter in picking a nominee. Words worth thinking about: "Mormons have served quietly and honorably in the House, Senate, Armed Forces, Judiciary, every federal agency, and most Presidential Administrations for 100 years. Those who would try to impute any disloyalty, dishonor or ineptitude to them for their religious beliefs degrade us all." -- President Bush on criticism of Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt's appointment to the EPA.
