Michael Castle An Out of Touch Politician?



You be the judge.

"I am honored to welcome Sen. John McCain, probably the nation's most popular politician, to Delaware this coming weekend," Castle said in a press release. "It will be fun to show off Sussex County to him."

John McCain, the nation's most popular politician?

UPDATE: As Castle's best new buddy comes to town, let's take a quick look at the so-called "moderate" and "popular" Senator McCain.

WHAT MCCAIN STANDS FOR: THEN AND NOW

Abortion

THEN:McCain Opposed Overturning Roe: It Would Force Women To Seek Illegal Abortions. [San Francisco Chronicle, 8/20/99]

NOW: McCain Wouldn't Be Bothered By Supreme Court Ban On Abortion, Would Sign South Dakota’s Abortion Ban. [CBS News, 1/25/06; ABC News, 3/29/06; ABC News, 2/26/06; NationalJournal.com, 2/28/06]

Evil

THEN: McCain Called Falwell "Evil Influence" on GOP. [Kansas City Star, 5/28/05]

NOW: McCain Met With Falwell To Lay Groundwork for 2008 Run And Agreed To Speak At Falwell’s Liberty University. [US News and World Report, 11/14/05; Lynchburg News & Advance, 3/28/06]

Click here for all the “moderate” positions he’s rescinded since pandering to the right-wing. Now I'm sure Celia will be too flushed with giddy and girlish hero worship to report on this, but when McCain visits with Castle the headline should read:

One Fake Moderate Stumps for Another

Comments:
McCain, probably the nation's most popular politician,

This is not true. He is not the most popular politician in America.

He is 3rd. Giuliani is first.

And Castle did say "probably." And it still is a major coup to get McCain in.
 
So much for Romney eh? Your a double-talk express man now.
 
Huh? I still support Romney over McCain, but that doesn't mean it's not a major coup to get McCain in to Delaware during this election season. Unlike you, I don't disparage all of the opponents of the people I support.
 
People don't know McCain. That is why he is popular.

Talk about flip/flop. He makes Mary Lou Retton look like Christopher Reeves.
 
And McCain's not a fake moderate. He's a fake conservative.
 
McCain's straight talk express officially derailed into the ocean the minute he decided to give that commencement speech at Falwell's college. Does he really believe the religious right wing is so dense that they won't see through his charade? Not to mention, Bush won the last election by a razor thin margin. And that was with the full force of the religious right behind him at the polls. I just don't see how a republican like McCain, or anyone but a staunch christian like bush pretends to be, could win in 08.

Easy answer: The thought of a "President Hillary."
 
At last some truth.

The R's are not "for" anything - they are simply motivtaed by hatred for Clinton.
 
Nice.

It's actually more fear that the head cheerleader for the "let's not only ignore the coming entitlement tsunami, let's stand and cheer that we're ignoring it" could be President.

It's fear that the embodiment of opposition to all the ideas we do stand for could be President.

And I'd go easy accusing the GOP of not having ideas. You won't get far.
 
Sorry. He is my correction based on your comment.

The R's are not "for" anything - they are simply motivated by fear of Clinton.
 
They have ideas alright. They're just not very good ones.
 
"The Republican Party has become the party of ideas." - Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
 
Moynihan said that 25 years ago! Since then we've TRIED all those Republican ideas and now the results are in - most of those ideas sucked.

So when Democrats now insist on returning to tried-and-true values, why do you complain they aren't dreaming up new harebrained schemes like Republicans do?
 
Since then we've TRIED all those Republican ideas

No. No we haven't. We've had people run on those values and ideals but betray them when they are elected. Unlike the ideas of liberalism, which WERE tried and DID fail.

Yup... Reagan, GWB... I guess the third time will be the charm, right?
