McCain Can Fear Monger, Too

The God card three paragraphs in:

  • I am proud to be a conservative, and I make that claim because I share with you that most basic of conservative principles: that liberty is a right conferred by our Creator, not by governments…
  • the steadfast defense of our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which I have defended my entire career as God-given to the born and unborn.
  • I know that to be denied liberty is an offense to nature and nature’s Creator.

And now the Reagans:

  • I have also always believed, like you, in the wisdom of Ronald Reagan.
  • I attended my first CPAC conference as the invited guest of Ronald Reagan
  • I heard him deliver his “shining city upon a hill” speech…
  • …his words inspired and helped form my own political views.
  • Ronald Reagan’s defense of America’s cause in Vietnam and his evident concern for American prisoners of war in that conflict inspired and were a great comfort…
  • I am proud, very proud, to have come to public office as a foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution.
  • …my confidence that conservative pr inciples still appeal to a majority of Americans, Republicans, Independents and Reagan Democrats

And let’s not forget the fear-mongering:

  • Whomever the Democrats nominate, they would govern this country in a way that will, in my opinion, take this country backward…to the timidity and wishful thinking of a time when we averted our eyes from terrible threats to our security that were so plainly gathering strength abroad.
  • It is shameful and dangerous that Senate Democrats are blocking an extension of surveillance powers that enable our intelligence and law enforcement to defend our country against radical Islamic extremists.

(Uh, there’s something called a warrant. It’s called “rule of law”.)

  • Senator Clinton and Senator Obama will withdraw our forces from Iraq based on an arbitrary timetable designed for the sake of political expediency, and which recklessly ignores the profound human calamity and dire threats to our security that would ensue.

God, Reagan, and “elect the Democrats and our enemies will kill us.” Now we know what kind of campaign it’s going to be.
