McCain Is My Third Choice

John McCain is my third choice for President behind Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani. I agree with Hugh Hewitt's short list for why.

There's a reason why Senator McCain never brings [the gang of 14] up when asked to discuss his qualifications for the presidency. It is on the list with the votes against the Bush tax cuts, the McCain-Kennedy immigration "reform," McCain-Feingold, ANWR and many other things.

The Gang of 14 is short hand for why John McCain should not be the nominee of the GOP.
"The Gang of 14 was a term coined to describe the bipartisan group of moderate Senators in the 109th United States Congress who successfully negotiated a compromise in the spring of 2005 to avoid the deployment of the so-called [constitutional] option" Wikipedia. The constitutional option was a Republican plan to change the rules of the Senate so as to not allow filibustering of judicial nominees.

"Senator McCain voted against the Bush tax cuts. Now he's for them." Mitt Romney on Thursday, April 26th, 2007 in Stratham, N.H. Found at PolitiFact.com. See also, MediaMatters.org view on this PolitiFact article.

I will support whoever is the Republican nominee. I am convinced that Mitt Romney is the best choice.
