John McCain's Response to Romney's Departure

John McCain's Response to Romney's Departure

In front of the same audience that Mitt Romney officially declared his intent to end his campaign this morning, John McCain said this, "I am acutely aware that I cannot succeed . . . without the support of dedicated conservatives." He then quoted Ronald Reagan saying however, "a political party cannot be all things to all people." He asked the strongly conservative audience to judge him based on his record stating, "I am not in the habit of making promises to my country that I do not intend to keep."

McCain has recently been criticized for not being conservative enough for some voters. Speaking in front of the not entirely supportive Conservative Political Action Conference, he joked and said, "I hope we can do this more often." He finished by saying that he would listen to conservative advisers, but cautioned them to patience, as he would ultimately make the decision best for the far-reaching goals of the country.

Do you think McCain intends to keep a more moderate message throughout the campaign, or will he be tempted to infuse his message with more conservative views?

kelliegonzo- i agree with you. he's a weenie because he really has no conservative convictions- he just wants to place himself against the Dems when they are really alike.
