McDonnell OK With McCain as Nominee

Tim Craig

Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell, a conservative Republican who may run for governor next year, said today he would be comfortable if Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) becomes the GOP presidential nominee, even though some party activists are questioning McCain's commitment to the conservative cause.

"John McCain is a war hero, and he is an expert on national defense and national security is the top issue the country is facing right now," said McDonnell, who initially supported former senator Fred Thompson. "I think he would be an excellent commander in chief. Do I agree with him on immigration and campaign finance or some of his views on global warming? No. I think he is wrong on some of those issues but he brings a lot more to the table to be the leader of the free world compared to either one of the two Democrats."

I suppose Mr. McDonnell would say that our
war policy is working because we have not been attacked since 9/11, and we owe all that to the president and his cohorts. This is a fallacy. All you have to do is read the papers or turn on TV to see that our borders, north and south, are so porous that aliens are walking across into the US. They come every day and night, and can easily carry contraband into our country, components to make weapons, etc. We also have read that our agencies have tested airline safety by carrying illegal items into our country via the airlines. How silly to say we have not been attacked since 9/11 because of our homeland security defenses and the dedication of our president. We owe him nothing in this regard. The enemy has simply not chosen to attack us again. We know they could if they decide to. They certainly are not afraid of our border security.
