Christian Conservatives Mull McCain
Posted by Ryan on July 3, 2008
Finally some good news for McCain on the conservative front. Seeing as the choice in this year’s election is one between “meh” and “Oh God, NO!” a group of about 100 Christian Conservative leaders will support “meh”.
Eventually, some Christian conservatives will come out to vote for McCain, but I still feel that voting for a candidate draws more enthusiasm and turnout than voting against becoming an Obama Nation. For McCain’s part, his campaign didn’t bother sending anyone to this potentially important meeting. Even though the recent string of Obama speeches, gaffes by surrogates like Clark, and the recent slate of Supreme Court decisions have made me a bit more jazzed about defeating Obama, I can’t get truly excited about this McCain. I think the message out of the Christian conservative meeting was pretty much the same.
