McCain Goes After Romney

Posted in Election 2008 by Ryan on the October 15th, 2007

So I read this article at Politico.com that details McCain’s recent swipe at Romney as a false candidate without fundamental guiding conservative principles.  He cites positions Romney had while running for office in Massachusetts.  Pretty blatant attacks topped off with:

“So you’ll understand why I’m a little perplexed when Mitt Romney now suggests that he’s a better Republican than me, or that he speaks for the Republican wing of the Republican Party.”

Romney’s campaign responded with the bland old:

“Angry attacks from flailing campaigns won’t stop Gov. Romney from moving forward with his optimistic agenda designed to bring sorely needed change to Washington”

But then, they go for the jugular, 2 times.

First:

“Sen. McCain’s signature legislative accomplishment, the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill, is a legislative abomination that we, along with many other conservatives, happen to strongly disagree with. The McCain-Kennedy immigration legislation the senator championed was exactly the wrong approach and only encouraged law-breaking and borders that are less secure. Lastly, Sen. McCain’s vote against the Bush tax cuts that helped grow our national economy showed conservatives that he is not a friend of the pro-growth economic policies that put more money back into the taxpayer’s pocket.”

Boomshakalaka!

Second:

This terribly embarrassing video of McCain endorsing Romney back in 2002.

John McCain says:

“You might not always agree with me on every issue…”

Agree on every issue?  Absolutely not.  See the long quote from the Romney camp above.

“…but I hope you know I’m not going to con you”

How?  Like encourage us to vote for a “political fraud?”  Ah…politics.
