Bush Calls McCain a 'True Conservative'

By Zachary A. Goldfarb
President Bush today defended Sen. John McCain's conservative credentials against critics within the Republican Party, calling the Arizona senator a "true conservative."

In his most expansive comments yet on the 2008 presidential election, Bush said on "Fox News Sunday" that McCain is strong on national defense and taxes and is pro-life. "His principles are sound and solid, as far as I'm concerned," the president said.

But Bush acknowledged that McCain has "some convincing to do to convince people that he is a solid conservative." The president added, "I'll be glad to help him," should McCain win the GOP nomination.

With former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) still in the Republican race, Bush avoided endorsing any nominee. But he repeatedly took to the defense of McCain, whose string of victories last Tuesday has given him a commanding lead.

Asked about the stern opposition among the conservative wing of the GOP toward McCain, over his positions on campaign finance, immigration and other issues, Bush replied, "You can't please all the people all the time."

As for Huckabee, who said the White House had an "arrogant bunker mentality" in its foreign policy, Bush said: "I'm sure that you can find quotes from people running for office that sound like they're at odds with me. ... What really matters in a campaign [is] what are the basic beliefs."

Bush also addressed the Democratic candidates, saying that if Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) and Barack Obama (Ill.) focus on his tenure, "I think they'll be making a huge tactical mistake."

Of Obama, the president said, "I certainly don't know what he believes in."

While McCain is well ahead in GOP polls of Maryland and Virginia, which vote Tuesday along with the District of Columbia, Huckabee made up a little ground yesterday, beating McCain in Louisiana and Kansas voting. According to wire service projections, McCain narrowly beat Huckabee and Paul in Washington state.

On NBC's "Meet the Press," host Tim Russert underscored the difficulty of Huckabee's challenge: Even if Huckabee won all the remaining primaries, he could not add enough delegates to clinch the nomination before the GOP national convention.

"I don't know how the math works out, but there's always a chance something [sic] stumbles," Huckabee replied. "The thing is, it's not just how many I need. Senator McCain also needs that many. If he doesn't get that many, this thing could go to the convention."

Huckabee would not concede a loss in Washington state, saying his campaign is investigating "legal issues" there because of the closeness of the vote.

Huckabee was most explicit in describing his own chances, should he not win the nomination, of getting the No. 2 spot on the GOP ticket.

"I'm not going to be asked," Huckabee declared. "I think it's pretty evident there would be a whole lot of people ... before me, and one of them would say yes."

But if he were asked, Huckabee said, "Nobody turns it down that I know of."

Karl Rove, Bush's former senior political adviser, did his best to shoot down Huckabee's chances. Rove said on CBS's "Face the Nation" that it was far-fetched to presume that McCain would say something or do something to doom his candidacy.

Huckabee "said he could win, provided that there were mistakes made by his opponent, and that some of these bound or pledged delegates would change their mind. Well, even if they change their mind, they're bound or pledged to vote for the candidate who won their primary," Rove said. "I find it very unlikely, completely implausible that Governor Huckabee could win 83 percent of the delegates."

As Bush's adviser, Rove ran a brutal campaign against McCain as Bush and McCain dueled for the GOP nomination in 2000. But this week Rove donated money to the senator's campaign.

Like his former boss, Colin Powell, the former secretary of state and retired general, declined to endorse any candidate. "I am not in the endorsement business right now," Powell said on CNN's "Late Edition."

Powell said he is still a Republican, but he had kind words for Obama: "He has energized a lot of people in America. He has energized a lot of people around the world. And so I think he is worth listening to and seeing what he stands for. There are some positions he has that I wouldn't support, but that's the case with every candidate out there."

Powell said he wants to see elected a candidate with "the kind of vision ... that reaches out to the rest of the world, that starts to restore confidence in America, that starts to restore favorable ratings to America. Frankly, we lost a lot in recent years. I am going to be looking for the candidate that seems to me to be leading a party that is fully in sync with the candidate and a party that will also reflect America's goodness and America's vision."

Bush, Pelosi Steer Clear of 'Recession' Label

Amid questions about the nation's economy, Bush was asked whether the United States has begun a recession. The president said he does not yet think so, but "the signs are troubling enough that we all came together and got a robust [stimulus] package out." Going forward, he said, "We just have to play it by ear."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would not go that far, either. "Whether it is technically a recession or not, in these homes in America, people are struggling and it feels like a recession. We need to do something about it," she said on CNN.

The Legacy Thing

Bush derided as "shallow psychobabble" the notion that he is trying to carve a distinct legacy from that of his father. When he hears people trying to assess his historical legacy, he said, "I take great comfort in knowing that they don't know what they are talking about, because history takes a long time for us to reach."

Adopting the worst ideas of Democrats (amnesty for illegal aliens) and the worst ideas of Republicans (unprovoked and prolonged war) are hardly admirable traits of a centrist. I am one independent that will never vote for McCain, and supposedly his centrist views are meant to appeal to those like me. McCain is neither a good Republican, nor a good Democrat, and he certainly is not a good independent. The other two Democrats are hardly worth cheering about either. They are all patterned after Bush. This nation is doomed, if this is the best we can come up with.

How can conservatives look themselves in the mirror and call themselves true conservatives without laughing? Iraq is costing this country half a trillion and still counting, financed by China and India! How many trillions are we in debt? Its a joke calling Bush & Co. conservatives and the joke is on America. Our government has grown ubelievable in the past 7 years. Is that the new conservatism theology now? "just saying its conservative doesn't make it so folks" "slapping perfume on that pig don't mean it still doesn't stink, it stinks more"!

From Wikipedia, "In the 2000 race Bush allied himself on stage with a marginal and controversial veterans activist named J. Thomas Burch, who accused McCain of having "abandoned the veterans" on POW/MIA and Agent Orange issues: "He came home from Vietnam and forgot us." Incensed, McCain ran ads accusing Bush of lying and comparing Bush to Bill Clinton,which Bush complained was "about as low a blow as you can give in a Republican primary." But that was not the worst. A mysterious semi-underground campaign began against McCain, delivered by push polls, faxes, e-mails, flyers, and the like, and comprising a series of smears: most famously, that he had fathered a black child out of wedlock (a hurtful reference to the McCains' dark-skinned daughter Bridget, adopted from Bangladesh, and thought to be an especially effective slur in a Deep South state where race was still central), but also that his wife Cindy was a drug addict, that he was a homosexual, that he was a "Manchurian Candidate" traitor or mentally unstable from his North Vietnam POW days."

Coulter and Limbaugh are driving me to the Democrats..... I HATE the religious nut jobs who preach small government on one hand and then want to put big government into our lives with their intolerant social policies.... I'll NEVER vote for an Evangelical as long as I live.... if that's our party - screw you.

Posted by: egrib | February 10, 2008 4:25 PM

My family has been Republican since 1864. I've never voted for a Democrat. This year I will, because I look at the Party of Lincoln and Reagan and do not recognize it after eight years of Bush. When Democrats make more sense than Republicans on fiscal responsibility and national security policy, something terrible has happened. It's reflected in this bizarre primary season.

I am not worried about Clinton or Obama ruining the country. If Carter couldn't, they can't.

Posted by: Darden Cavalcade | February 10, 2008 4:29 PM

How in the hell would Jr. know an conservative? He is not. He one more like a Liberal cross between an Moron and a Idiot! I have no doubt he was the most incompetent President in the last 100 years. When you are so bad you make Jimmy Carter look good you cannot get much worse than that!

Posted by: Bl | February 10, 2008 4:38 PM

I consider myself independent but more and more I find myself clicking the candidate with the D next to their name because of the way the Republicans have been hijacked. Flushing money down the toilet on horrible foreign policies and bloated defense budgets is not conservative. The party's "base" has become too concerned with oppressing people's freedoms based on religion rather than focusing on the laissez-faire, reduce wasteful spending attitude that used to be a part of the platform. I think if any candidate this year echoes Reagan its Obama. The best thing Reagan did was make alot of people proud to be an American again. Eight years of Bush has destroyed much of the countries morale. Obama seems to be getting people excited again and I think would reintroduce the pride into being an American.

Posted by: Burt R | February 10, 2008 4:44 PM

I agree with the comments of Gerrie. I find it silly and sad that conservatives, including the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Hugh Hewitt can support this pro-gov't Bush administration and its overboard spending and expansion of government. McCain is only part of the problem for conservatives. The thing that frightens me the most is that you have no one in the White House nor the Congress who cares about fiscal restraint and the size of government.

Posted by: jsolan | February 10, 2008 4:49 PM

Why doesn't Bush just say that McCain has a black child somewhere? His endorsement is the kiss of death.

But then, McCain is running as Bush's Third Term anyway.

Shut up "w". It is so very obvious that this country did not need the despicably evil "w"/DICKY regime for eight minutes, much less 8 horrible years. It is very obvious that this country does not need that way-too-old warmonger. I'm hoping that your support helps defeat him. Of course, it is also very obvious that this country does not need hrc and her slick willy husband. But most of all, in the very obvious department, the United States is in very deep doo!!!!!

Posted by: Ken | February 10, 2008 4:57 PM

Hooray Bush. Keep up your pro-McCain support - loud and clear.

We need to tie McCain to Bush like a Siamese twin - because he is.

Yes - Conservative - they gave us Iraq, Viet Nam, tax cuts for the rich, deep and lasting scandals in Washington, Congressmen going after men and boys sexually, hypoticrical preachers like Swaggert and Ted Haggart, Haliburton, Cheney, Tom Delay, Jack Abramoff - the list is endless.

We need to have Bush, McCain and all of us using the word "conservative" and defining what it has meant to the down fall of America.

What I like about Huckabee...

...is that he is a better talker than the talk show hosts he talks to and the ones who talk about him.

He's smarter than the pundits and the lobbyists (if you can tell the difference between a pundit and a lobbyist).

That's a quality we need in a President.

Bush & Co. are not conservatives. They're neo-cons. What we have today was modeled after Stalin's soviet. The only difference is then government owned the businesses. Now the businesses own the government. The end result is the same. Freedoms lost. A paranoid government spying on it's citizens. And an endless war for world domination.
It's really sad seeing so many Americans supporting these enemies of ours.
These people are traitors and should be treated as such. Along with those that are protecting them and allowing this to continue.
Take back your government.

Bush throws out the constitution and makes war in foreign countries. Bush tramples on liberty, freedoms, and privacy. Bush creates a huge federal debt and tax breaks for the wealthy class. So much for the self-described compassionate conservate.

That part about Powell's reserved praise for Obama was interesting..and that Bush says, "I certainly don't know what he believes in." What a horse's ass. The only "idea" that Bush has is vetoing an appropriations bill will half the earmarks...while still getting all the executive branch earmarks he wants. Step aside, Georgie. You're done.

Dude, I see what you're saying, but -- Bush is not necessarily being inconsistent here. All that could be true, and McCain could still be a conservative.

Personally, I've read the report from the bureaucracy, but I will not be making a comment until the investigation has been completed and all the facts are in. And then we can move on. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Republicans are toast. Here is one of Bush's legacies:

"Feb. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Financial institutions around the world face $400 billion of write-offs as a consequence of the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis, according to Group of Seven estimates, German Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck said yesterday."

Why would Bush insult McCain like that?

Posted by: Poggy | February 10, 2008 7:26 PM

McCain's V.P. running mate.

Here is the growing list of reasons why Governor Romney would be the perfect V.P. choice for McCain - and everyone else:

1. There is widespread agreement that if John McCain loses this year, Gov. Romney will run in 2012. If Gov. Romney were on the ticket as V.P. next in line for the GOP nod in 2016, Mr. McCain would not have to worry about whether Mr. Romney would work as hard as possible for a McCain/Romney win this year.
2. Governor Romney is very intelligent, and I think would be very comfortable dealing with foreign dignitaries.
3. Governor Romney is very rich and has a well-oiled fund-raising circuit that would be very beneficial to Mr. McCain.
4. Governor Romney would bring expertise to economic matters that Mr. McCain seems to be lacking.
5. Governor Romney would bring executive experience as a Governor to the ticket.
6. Governor Romney would bring almost all of his supporters to help with a McCain/Romney ticket, thereby assuring that his supporters aren't trying to bring him attention to a potential 2012 run, nipping such conversation quickly, before it takes root and is hard to break apart.
7. Governor Romney appeals to social, economic and defense conservatives, bringing the whole Party and most of the Conservative Movement - including talk radio - on board with the ticket.
8. Romney supporters are very enthusiastic and dedicated. You cannot buy this kind of endearment, but McCain would be able to pick up his supporters, and their already-in-place organizational and other skills they would have to offer to the ticket.
9. Romney would help John McCain in purple states such as Michigan, Nevada and Minnesota, and could even put Massachusetts in place in November.
10. Governor Romney brings all the necessary ingredients to John McCain's campaign that he so desperately needs to succeed against Hillary - and especially - an Obama Democratic opponent.
11. You cannot buy loyalty like Governor Romney has with his supporters. You have to EARN it. By giving Romney the nod for the V.P. slot, McCain would be showing the Conservative Movement in America that he will not abandon them in the future. If he does this, he will almost be unstoppable in the fall against the Democrats.
12. Governor Romney is now widely seen as heir next in line to be the GOP nominee if McCain were to be defeated, or if McCain served two terms, then 2116, if Romney stays in the game that long. The move to make Romney V.P. would silence many evangelical and social conservatives who now would support Gov. Romney, including Dr. Dobson and others. This would shore up support among Mr. Huckabee's supporters to Mr. McCain, endearing McCain as the one who actually DID bring the Party and Conservative Movement together to defeat the Democrats and take BACK both Houses of Congress!
13. Gov. Romney was the clear "change" candidate - and ran on that theme. The move to make Romney V.P. would be a tough ticket against a Hillary/Obama ticket. Change wins almost every time. We would now be able to bring that on-the-ground message IMMEDIATELY!
14. As the man who actually did something about - and has earned him wide recognition of - healthcare reform, he is the ideal man to blunt the Democrat's BillaryCare proposals. This item would essentially be OURS as Republicans, which would deflate much criticism against the Republicans for not adequately addressing this critical issue thus far!
15. By picking Romney, we come out a totally unified Republican Party AND Conservative Movement - ready to fight against the Democrats NOW!
16. McCain IS the President-elect. He WILL be the Commander in Chief. McCain WILL be the boss - apple sauce -non debatable. McCain will get his way on very many things. But, Mr. Romney can still use cabinet meetings and gestures to try to persuade Mr. McCain to go all the way toward Ronald Reagan's principled road of social, economic and military-might conservatism. Mr. McCain will ALWAYS win. But, Romney will be RIGHT there to balance McCain as needed.
17. Romney would be good for McCain, since Romney is NOT a "yes" man. Romney is a principled, determined conservative who is GRACIOUS -yet stern when applicable - who can turn the other cheek when needed, after his opinions are known and rejected. He PROVED that by bowing out graciously and promising to work hard for Mr. McCain as the GOP nominee-to-be. Mr. McCain does NOT need a "yes" man, but rather someone who can keep his temper and political wavering's from right issues in check.
18. An informal straw vote among those present to see who they might prefer for President after the CPAC convention showed Romney winning it with 34%, followed by John McCain at 33 %, and Huckabee way down at only 14 percent. This vote proves that adding Gov. Romney to the ticket would quell the right and go along way toward making sure they aren't complacent on election day.
19. If McCain does not pick a well-known conservative for V.P., it may take MONTHS for the Republican electorate to get know and accept him, as was the case with Gov. Romney. Conservatives now know that Romney is "one of us," after his gracious exodus speech at a stunned CPAC convention. People cried. My wife cried. I cried. You CANNOT buy that kind of endearment! Governor Mitt Romney EARNED IT!
20. John McCain is old, grey, and not very attractive overall. A V.P. pick that is younger, more handsome, and without so many grey hairs will help McCain with some voters concerns about such things. Romney fits the bill here.
21. No other governor fits as many specific criteria that a V.P. should have than Governor Romney. A pick that is OTHER than a governor for the V.P. slot isn't as attractive to some voters. Executive experience does matter, and Romney can balance a McCain ticket in this way.
22. A V.P. pick should already be politically battle-hardened so that there won't be embarrassing moments for the campaign. Romney took punches from virtuously everyone - and still stayed a gentlemen under pressure.
23. A V.P. pick MUST be a scandal and corruption-free pick that under the intense scrutiny of the media's microscope, will not be a negative for the campaign. Romney is about as pure as new snow as one can get. His first and only wife, along with ALL his children, are fine, upstanding citizens with no baggage to bring to a McCain campaign.
24. Many Romney supporters feel like they were shafted by McCain due to his mis-characterization (some say lie) of Romney's stance on time tables and troops withdrawal from Iraq right before the Florida contest. Romney supporters are keenly aware of the extreme distaste McCain and some of his supporters have for Mr. Romney, and this is feeding a movement for him to run in 2012, ceding the 2008 election to the Democrats. If Romney becomes McCain's V.P. choice, most of this talk, including the movement, would stop, with Romney supporters instead working hard for the McCain/Romney 2008 ticket.
25. Most Mormons feel betrayed and bitter about what many see as Mr. Huckabee's overt anti-Mormon bigotry. The history of the Republican Party and Mormons goes back many years, and Mormons have ALWAYS been a strong, reliable source of strength for our Party. By putting Mr. Romney on the ticket, they will feel that Mr. McCain is really not going to let our Party leave them feeling left out, possibly losing this constituency for a long time to come. Let's be a party of inclusion that the voters approve of, not of the bigoted few that only divide us to eventual ruin.
26. Mr. Huckabee's wins on saturday against McCain are a harbinger of what is in store for the McCain campaign if they don't act QUICKLY to put this fire of his out. This will become a movement in short order if not stopped immediately, leading to a full-blown retreat from McCain. If McCain doesn't make Romney the V.P. choice very soon, then Huckabee may be in a position to demand he be on the ticket with McCain. If McCain must do this, he will effectively cause a rift in the Republican Party that will not heal for possibly many years to come. Huckabee is unacceptable to far too many than he will ever attract.

What does Bush know of being a "true" coservative? With his rubber stamping Congress he spent like a drunken sailor. McCain's support of Bush's administration before these primaries shows he's basically the same. We can't take another 4 to 8 years of that. Too bad Colin isn't running. I'd like to hear his agenda. Him I could vote for, but not Obama. The full effects of Bush's "legacy" haven't crystalized yet. I'm going with Hillary. So far I think she's the best choice out there.

All the excitement Obama is generating among good people who want to take this country back from the wolf pack is a hopeful thing. Go Obama!

Posted by: Sara B. | February 10, 2008 7:51 PM

The long list of failures Bush has racked up should disqualify him from making comment about anybody during the campaign to find his replacement. A true Conservative conserves resources. Pouring trillions of dollars into an elective war fought on baseless grounds and continued on further baseless grounds (fear of terrorists, fear of being perceived as a weak sister among nations, capitulating to terrorists, not getting our money's worth out of this "investment") is not conservative. That kind of conservative is the overtly religious male with secret fears of sexual inadequacy that are compensated for with hypermasculine put downs of more sensible people who don't suffer from that problem. "No surrender," indeed.

If Maverick McCain is a true conservative, can he be a maverick, too? Staying in Iraq for 100 yrs is exactly what Bush wants, keeping the tax cuts in place permanently is what Bush wants, so where is the Maverick-ness on the 2 major issues of the day? But we'll have to endure 9 months of the media prostrating themselves before the Maverick while he parrots policies that indicate his love for the Bush/Cheney years. That should easily win Mccain 35-40% of the vote.

I am delighted to read all of these negative remarks about our Criminal-in-Chief. Where was every body when he was posturing for the war in Iraq? I guess they were all hibernating for God's sake. Where were all of these people when Cheney was selling us out to the big energy companies? Where were all of these people when Bush squandered a budget surplus in favor of putting us forever in debt to Asia? Where were all of these people when Bush was stacking the Supreme Court or giving big tax cuts to the already too rich friends of his? It's nice that people are starting to wake up but Bush and his friends have already taken this nation to new lows with a horrendous deficit, a military that isn't up to snuff for a real conflict and a country unprotected at home because HE sent the National Guard to Iraq a place he's been too chicken to visit accept under cover of darkness. And what of McCain? Why would he want Bush to endorse him after the things they did to McCain in the 2000 election? This makes me wonder if McCain is as unstable as Dubya, Cheney and Rice. The Democrats are far from perfect but I do think one of them would be far better for the country than a Bush conservative or a Huckabee, let's-change-the-constitution to match the bible, conservative. I would have voted for McCain in 2000 but now I have to vote for what I consider to be the lesser of two evils. It is time to give the other side a chance, I do believe they can't do any worse than the current administration or anyone who has supported them all these years while they squander our democracy, international good will, and our money. Better a tree hugger than a Bush hugger.
