McCain Movement

We wanted to draw your attention to two interesting McCain links from the past couple of days. First, this morning Race42008.com has an exclusive interview with McCain's Iowa Coalitions Director Marlys Popma. The interview is quite revealing and if you are interested in how McCain plans on bringing social conservatives into the fold this is a must-read. She addresses the "agents of intolerance" and Dobson issues and explains why she chose McCain in great detail. Go over to Race42008 for the whole thing.

Also, last week we pointed you to a Des Moines Register op-ed on Iraq by Tommy Thompson. Over the weekend, Iowa veteran David Elwell expressed his support for John McCain's stance on Iraq. You can check that out here. Elwell had some strong words for our elected officials and made the pitch for the surge strategy. It will be interesting to see how much the surge defines the GOP's nominating process with Brownback, Pataki, and Hagel all opposed. Will Romney, Giuliani, and Huckabee be forced to be more vocal on the war by editorials like these? Or, does it play to their advantage to sit on the sidelines and watch McCain be the sole advocate for an Iraq strategy that even its most vocal supporters have called challenging and uncertain to succeed?

Hey "Cancer Man" that is a pretty serious accusation your making for somebody who's most noteworthy accomplishment is making snarky comments on a blog.

Marlys has worked her A** off for this party over the last 2 DECADES. She has been a die-hard, dedicated advocate for the conservative cause. So before you go calling her a money-grubber let's see your accomplishments. Or maybe you'd like to tell her in person, but I doubt it.

I don't agree with Marlys on John McCain but I thought she gave some heartfelt answers, so maybe you should read them before you start spewing your bile.

I've got to chime in on this one.

Cancer Man "When is our party going to wake up to the phonies"

Mitt Romney talking to Planned Parenthood "You need someone like me in Washington"

Mitt Romney "Being pro-choice is a deeply personal thing, I am pro-choice and you will not see me wavering on that."

Yeah. You have a lot of room to talk on this one.. And if you read the freaking interview you would realize that Marlys wanted to find a candidate that not only stood up for her issues but also had a snowballs chance in hell of winning. God forbid she wants to cede Supreme Court nominating authority to Hillary f'ing Clinton.

And lastly if this argument was happening in person and not on the internet I would have punched you in the fucking face when you used the word "whore." And I bet that your friends and mine that support Mitt Romney like Doug Gross, Dave Kochel, Tim Albrecht, respectable people, would have told you to tone it down as well.

You are right, whore is a poor choice of words. However, would you prefer sellout? Is that ok?

And easy on the physical threats. Grow up or just bring it. Up to you.

why is so ifficult for romneyites to acknowledge that there is not a more consistent supporter of the pro-life movement and the war on terror than John McCain.

come to think of it, for me everything else is trivial

you have to be consistent on Pro-life and you have to be strong on the war on terror

so Marlys is a sellout, but Nicole schlinger stood by her principles when she took that money bag from romney?

Riiight!

Nicole doesn't need to have principles, and she definitely doesn't try to hold them up high for all to see. She's in it for the money, and that's fine by me (cuz she's actually pretty good at what she does).

"R4′08: In 2000, Sen. McCain stated that he didn’t think Roe v. Wade should be overturned. Do you believe this is where he stands now?

Senator McCain has a 24 year pro-life voting record. He believes that Roe v. Wade should be overturned. His choice of words were unfortunate, but after taking the time to understand the full meaning of his heart, it is obvious that I could temporarily put my obvious contradictions in thought on the candidates to rest and work for the old guy..."

Cancer Man -

You cheapen the level of discourse in this state. We are all worse off for having read your ridiculous attempts at character assasination.

I smell a libel suit cancer man.

If you can't even be responsible for what you type and then click on the submit button for you ought to get stuck with the consequences.

Using that word just because you disagree with her position shows your pathetic level of intelligence and inabilty to form a cogent argument.

Really, your record of comments on these sites shows that you consisently harp on her being able to get a big paycheck. Are you jealous and do you think that will really make any caucus-goer not support McCain?

You guys/guy just hate the Cman cuz he's got the balls to say what everyone else thinks but is afraid to/can't because of their jobs.

The only thing this blogger smells is this blog's anon obcession with bashing Romney and anyone who supports him.

Cancer Man-

You crossed the line with the Marlys comments, sir. MarshalltownGop is right on this one; you have absolutely no class! Oh, and Anon 9:14 thinks you have "balls" to say what you said? I'd disagree and say you have a tiny set, which is why you hide behind your computer all day everyday.

Your response to all the posts was to "bring it?" Well, sir. Let me know and I'll be more than happy to post my address for all to see; stop by soon and we'll discuss Marlys in greater detail. Throw out words like that again in my presence and we'll see how the conversation ends in person.

Feel free to call my bluff; I'm BEGGING you!
