John McCain has officially left the center.

  • 3 Comments
  • by: Aaron

I’ve defended him in the past, even going as far as to say I would vote for him if he ran for president, but that time has ended. With his run for president in 2008 in full swing, he has decided to abandon the center completely, and has turned into one of the bigoted partisan hacks that I despise.

If anyone caught his appearence on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, you might agree. On the show, his true colors on the issues of LGBT rights and a womans reproductive rights are fully exposed.

On LGBT rights, he says that the armed forces “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy has been “very effective”, that marriage is sanctified and should be granted to just men and women, that he doesn’t support civil unions (going even as far as voting for a state constitutional amendment banning them), and that he doesn’t support legislation banning housing and workplace discrimination against members of the LGBT community. After all that, he was asked if he felt homosexuality was a sin. He said no. Right.

On abortion rights, he said he supports a constitutional amendment banning abortion with few exceptions. He also says he hopes that Roe V. Wade is overturned. Moderate, my ass.

  1. and no maverick either.

    He supported this war full bore until he had to start his exploratory committee. Now he wants more troops, even John Abizaid it can’t be done. McCain should support a draft and call on Bush to implement his theories if he really believes this stuff. 

    The R’s still haven’t absorbed what American voters said about Republican policies and politics on the 7th. I hope he/they remain in the dark.

    When they turn on the lights again, it’ll be blue all over.

  2. He was a social conservative before 2000, and he’s a social conservative again now that 2008 is rolling around.

    And unless he wants the draft back in a way that Charlie Rangel doesn’t really want, his call for a massive troop increase defines “working in an alternate reality” in a way that I thought only the Dubya crowd could master.

    Hey, McCain!  How are those gay translators working out for you?  Oh, forgot!  They were all canned and now we don’t have enough resources to translate what the insurgents and terrorists are saying!

  3. Since Reagan, the GOP has been a solidly right wing party. George H W Bush, his VP, was a known moderate up through the 1980 GOP primary battles, but when he ran for President in 88 nary a moderate position did he take. Whatever moderate positions McCain held, he has abandoned them and sold his soul to the right wing, just like GHW Bush did. We’ll see if that helps him achieve the Presidency or not.
