Apparently Meghan McCain wrote an article complaining about Rick Perry and the fact that what the Republicans really need is a "moderate Republican." Essentially she's saying the Party needs someone like her daddy or worse, a straight liberal RINO like Mitt Romney in order to beat Obama.
Newsflash Meghan! Your pops lost to Obama. He lost in large part because he was a boring, uniniteresting, uninspiring "moderate Republican" who attempted to compromise and pat Liberals on the back all the time. He allowed Obama, liberals and the media to go on the offensive and to dictate the terms during the campaign rather than taking the fight to them. Why else do you think McCain was the MSM's pick as nominee? Anytime the Republicans end up with the Republican the MSM is endorsing as "the Republican Candidate" we can be reasonably sure that person is a terrible option.
If Rick Perry is "George Bush 2.0" then he is most certainly not "too conservative." Hell, he's not "conservative" at all if that's the case.
I'm wondering if Meghan McCain really believes that the reason her dad lost in 2008 was because he wasn't moderate enough? Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. Meghan McCain wants Republicans to do what they did in 2008. Why? It failed against Obama back then. Why would any rational person suggest we need to try the same approach in 2012?
