Separate and not equal

11Apr07

Why not McCain? That’s the question the authors at Power Line are asking. In their short but insightful essay, they examine how conservatives are holding John McCain to entirely different standards than Rudy Giuliani or Mitt Romney. They write:

“McCain’s “maverick” tendencies have long annoyed many Republicans, including me. But his willingness to go against the tide is being manifested now, more than ever, in his principled support for our effort to succeed in Iraq.

One more thing: McCain rarely talks about his own Vietnam era heroism, and he would be the last person to criticize the British hostages for their less than inspiring performance over the last couple of weeks. But that story can only remind us of the extraordinary courage and integrity that McCain showed under the most trying conditions possible. McCain’s courage doesn’t entitle him to be President, of course, but I think it does entitle him to a respectful hearing from conservatives. At a minimum, we should stop calling him a liberal.”

Here, here.
