If I wasn't already "Anybody But McCain" for '08....
....this 1-2-3 punch would do it:
He slams them for running conservatives against liberal Republicans in primaries. I am ok with socially liberal Republicans. I think they are the only sort of Republican that can win in places like my home of New York. But. But. The Club for Growth does not target Republicans for being pro-choice or for gay marriage. They don't care about the candidate's position on gun control. Their purpose is to support candidates that live up to the Reagan ideal of pro-growth, low tax policies. McCain knows this, and his "I support a big tent" argument against them is just plain silly.
*** McCain has introduced "a series of measures to roll back Bush policies and counter the "ugly American" image."
This is an excellent example of why I just can't stomach John McCain (please, oh lord, do not make him the Republican candidate because I will be forced to vote for him against Hillary or Obama and it will make me very, very sad). He'll sell out anyone to make news and benefit himself. Of all the things I care about with regards to the Iraq war, the opinion of Americans abroad is right near the bottom.
He started with annual conservative scores consistently in the 80s when he first went to the Senate in 1987, dipped to the 70s during the mid-1990s, into the 60s in the late 1990s and into the 50s starting in 2004.
