Keep ‘family issues’ out of ’08 bids, McCain says

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, who remarried one month after his 1980 divorce, said yesterday that the personal lives of White House hopefuls shouldn’t become an issue in the 2008 campaign.

“I would like to see this campaign conducted on past record and ambition for the future,” Mr. McCain told reporters after a fundraising luncheon in Charlotte, N.C. “I would hope that gossip — or, quote, ‘family issues’ — would not enter into this campaign.”

I don’t much care if he married one month after his divorce. If anyone has led a perfect life, I’ve never met ’em.

“I would like to see this campaign conducted on past record and ambition for the future,” Mr. McCain told reporters after a fundraising luncheon in Charlotte, N.C. “I would hope that gossip — or, quote, ‘family issues’ — would not enter into this campaign.”

If he beats his wife, does drugs or such, that’s another kettle of fish. The major issues in this campaign should be where the candidates stand. Where do they stand on abortion, taxes, the war on terror, border security, amnesty for illegals, and numerous other issues? Neither McCain or Guiliani passes muster with me.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree. Incidentally…I just made my 499th post on James Brown. I’m saving my 500th post for AFTER the Fox News Sunday appearance by YOU-KNOW-WHO….I’m hoping I have something GOOD to blog about for my 500th post 🙂

  2. Gonna do “live blogging”? 🙂

    500? Hmmm… I really gotta get a life. I just looked and the little thingy says 1,626. I wonder if that’s counting the stuff I was able to transfer. Still, I gotta get a life. LOL
