Who Needs Enemies?

From The New York Times:

Offering a preview of the general election campaign, President Bush sought on Friday to unify the Republican Party behind its presumptive nominee and said the contest would present the country with a stark ideological choice at a time of war.

Mr. Bush did not mention Senator John McCain in an early-morning speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference here. But he said that “soon we will have a nominee who will carry the conservative banner into this election and beyond,” in what was widely interpreted as a message of reassurance about Mr. McCain, whose relationship with Mr. Bush has been strained in the past, and who faces misgivings from the Republican right.

PAC Rats

From Mother Jones:

At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where a speech by Vice President Dick Cheney on Thursday was greeted with chants of “four more years,” John McCain was in enemy territory. Many of the right-wing activists who gathered for the annual event scornfully regard the Arizona senator as a false conservative, one who first opposed President Bush’s tax cuts and who has too often dared to team up with Democrats in Congress to promote legislation that drives conservatives crazy, including campaign finance and immigration reform.

The Chickenshit Comes Home to Roost

From Raw Story:

After Fox News anchor Chris Wallace boasted of the cable network’s latest coup — securing paid political commentary from Karl Rove — in a Super Tuesday interview on the Daily Show, host Jon Stewart, demonstrating his trademark wit, quickly jumped on the absurdity of such a hire.

Is this the start of McCain’s hundred years of war?

Oh kids! Things are getting ugly on the other side of the aisle!

(CNN) — GOP front-runner John McCain is cruising into Super Tuesday with a hefty lead in the polls, but he’s drawing a backlash from some top conservatives who say he is too liberal to carry the Republican nomination.

Sen. John McCain has come under attack from conservatives who say is he too liberal.

Radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Hugh Hewitt and Lars Larson are among the conservative voices speaking out against the Arizona senator.

The attacks have gotten so heated that former Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole Monday wrote Limbaugh defending McCain.

Rush to Judgement

From the Washington Post:

It may be the best sideshow in presidential politics: the nation’s top radio talker trying to take down the Republican front-runner in today’s Super Tuesday showdown.

Rush Limbaugh has been relentless in his criticism of John McCain, prompting suggestions that he may have to soften his stance if the Arizona senator wins the nomination and faces off against Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. But if that happens, Limbaugh said in an interview over the weekend, he would rather see the Democrats win the White House.

Uh-oh! There’s trouble in Gooperville!

McCain Enable?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mike Huckabee hasn’t won a Republican presidential contest in a month. The result: money is tighter, his staff is smaller and he can’t seem to get the attention he once did.

Still, he says he’s sticking around for the long haul — well past Tuesday’s coast-to-coast primaries and caucuses if need be.

“I’ll stay in until someone has 1,191 delegates,” the former Arkansas governor insisted Sunday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from Kennesaw, Ga. He was referring to the number of convention delegates needed to win the party nod. “A year ago, nobody said I’d still be here. Look who’s still on his feet.”

Cut and Waste

From the Washington Post:

President Bush will present a budget tomorrow that would slow the growth of Medicare and cut or eliminate an array of domestic programs but still anticipates a flood of new red ink that will rival the record deficits of his first term, administration officials said.
