Wednesday, March 14, 2007 - McCain draws heat from vet group, Club for Growth: "The anti-tax group Club for Growth yesterday released a review of McCain’s record on its top priorities and cautioned against electing him president. Meanwhile, a new “527” advocacy group, similar to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, has pledged to expose McCain as a communist apologist who turned his back on prisoners of war.
In the Club’s review — its third “white paper” of the 2008 presidential election — the group concluded “the evidence of [McCain’s] record and the virulence of his rhetoric suggest that American taxpayers cannot expect consistently strong economic policies from a McCain administration.”"

Okay, a couple of things to think about here. First, The Club for Growth had good intentions initially. It was about holding Congress accountable to a small government ideal. I liked them before the last campaign, and still get their emails, just so I can see how out of touch they continue to become. And to this, well, what do you call it? The Swift Boat guys trying to convince America that John McCain "is a communist apologizer and turned his back on prisoners of war". I would like to know how much time each of the idiots that so boldly said that spent as a POW. I would like to know how much time those idiots have spent in government trying to fight for soldier's benefits and VA expansion. McCain is a smart, well-intentioned Patriot. I probably won't vote for him, as he has said things recently to appease the religious right, a reason I have become more and more disillusioned. If Bush's second term taught me anything, it is that I want far less religion in government.
