A failure of GOP imagination

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2010 09:55 AM

I’ve already made clear: John McCain is the problem with the GOP. And he’s trying to install his mini-mes as congressional candidates across the country. Yesterday, Mitt Romney lined up with He That Ails the GOP:

Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts released a statement today, saying it would be “hard to imagine the United States Senate without John McCain, especially in the critical times we find ourselves in, with double-digit unemployment, a mountain of debt imperiling future generations and a global terrorist threat from jihadists bent on destroying our way of life.”

What we have here is a failure of GOP imagination.

Imagine a United States Senate without an illegal alien amnesty-peddling, bailout-caving, free speech-limiting, fairweather global warming cultist who has spent decades bashing the conservative wing of the Republican Party and then tries to pander to it whenever his seat is on the line.

It’s easy if you try.


Connie Hair has John McCain pegged. She reports on the Oba-kabuki health care dog-and-pony list of GOP attendees perfectly:

Senate Republicans announced their lineup to participate in the White House health care summit on Thursday, helping to breathe life into the Democrats’ failed government takeover of health care. The list includes the Republican leadership, Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) and Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.). Top Republicans on the relevant health and finance committees, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) will participate along with the Senate’s only two medical doctors, Sens. Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-Okla.) and John Barrasso, M.D. (R-Wyo.).

Also making the cut is the senator with the most experience consorting with liberal Democrats in order to create disastrous legislation, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Imagine the U.S. Senate without him. Please.
