McCain's Days as Viable Candidate Numbered
En route to New Hampshire, Republican John McCain is getting a lot of mileage out of his third-place finish in the Iowa Caucus. At the same time, he must realize his days as a presidential contender are numbered, in part, due to a skeleton in his campaign closet:
McCain is on record as saying he supports the work of an organization whose efforts oppose U.S. sovereignty.
Before you start thinking I’m a closet Ron Paul supporter, I caution you to think otherwise. I reached my conclusion, in part, after reading a recent Cliff Kincaid article published by Family Security Matters. In that article, Kincaid tips readers to the existence of a 2005 press release issued by Citizens for Global Solutions.
CGS describes itself as “a grassroots membership organization that envisions a future in which nations work together to abolish war, protect our rights and freedoms, and solve the problems facing humanity that no nation can solve alone” that promotes “effective democratic global institutions that will apply the rule of law while respecting the diversity and autonomy of national and local communities.” [Translation: The group advocates doing away with U.S. sovereignty and, it appears, Senator McCain does, too.]
So what’s in the news release? The headline gives a hint:
Citizens for Global Solutions Applauds Senator McCains Support of the International Criminal Court
The lead paragraph reveals more details:
In a BBC Worldservice televised debate before the World Economic Forum on Friday January 28th, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) declared his support for the United States joining the International Criminal Court (ICC), asserting: “I want us in the ICC.”
A few short paragraphs later, one can see the type of ultra-liberals with whom McCain shares his beliefs:
“Speaking alongside McCain was Senator Joseph Biden (D-DE), ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Like McCain, Biden stood in support of the United States inclusion in the ICC…”
Enjoy it while it lasts, senator. As soon as Mike Huckabee thinks the time is right, he and Ed Rollins are going to let this “genie” out of their bottle of campaign tactics and, quicker than you can say “I’ll win New Hampshire,” your presidential hopes will be dashed.
