McCain Shoot Conservatives, Will Shoots Back

When I first heard McCain start talking about certain people being fired if he were President (that he would have no authority to fire in the first place), my thoughts that McCain's philosophy on the economy and government may not be much better than Obama's were confirmed. I have to agree with Rush Limbaugh's statement yesterday that somebody needs to tell McCain that he is running against Obama...not Wall Street!

George Will's Blog column McCain in Wonderland at Townhall.com simply nails McCain as being ignorant on economics as Barack Obama. The column states,

Channeling his inner Queen of Hearts, John McCain furiously, and apparently without even looking around at facts, said Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, should be decapitated. This childish reflex provoked The Wall Street Journal to editorialize that "McCain untethered" -- disconnected from knowledge and principle -- had made a "false and deeply unfair" attack on Cox that was "unpresidential" and demonstrated that McCain "doesn't understand what's happening on Wall Street any better than Barack Obama does."

Now McCain wants to replace Cox with Andrew Cuomo. Why? Because McCain thinks he has respect and prestige...whatever that may mean.

Under McCain's leadership, true Conservatism could be destroyed. Rush Limbaugh may want to win, but McCain certainly is not the path back. Limbaugh fears that without McCain we could end up with Liberal Judges. But Will goes on to assert,

"Conservatives who insist that electing McCain is crucial usually start, and increasingly end, by saying he would make excellent judicial selections. But the more one sees of his impulsive, intensely personal reactions to people and events, the less confidence one has that he would select judges by calm reflection and clear principles, having neither patience nor aptitude for either."

In conclusion I must agree with Will's claim that

The political left always aims to expand the permeation of economic life by politics. Today, the efficient means to that end is government control of capital. So, is not McCain's party now conducting the most leftist administration in American history? The New Deal never acted so precipitously on such a scale.

This is the problem when Republicans accept the premises of the Left and try to solve problems after having done so. After many years, Left-wing ideology of government control of the free-market has finally taken it toll. During these next few weeks McCain has the greatest opportunity of a life time to defeat his political enemies. It is just too bad his political enemies happen to include me.
