One thing you can say about John LeBoutillier: Unlike his Newsmax stablemate Ronald Kessler, he's not going to sell out his previous longtime of John McCain in order to ingratiate himself with his fellow Republicans -- well, at least not until it's much closer to the election and he has a full head of Obama-hate to rival his longtime Clinton hatred).
Indeed, in a July 7 column, LeBoutillier pounds on McCain yet again:
Has there ever been a president who has had so little support inside the base of his party? Has there ever been a president who went out of his way to attack that base? And took such glee is that base’s unhappiness?
How could McCain possibly lead the GOP, and the nation, with such poor relations with his own party?
A fascinating note: a long-time Reaganite Republican told me that virtually every conservative he knows is plotting against McCain not against Obama! What does that tell us about the state of the GOP and the conservative movement? It is riven with dissent and discord and, like any addict living in denial, it can’t be fixed until we reach the very bottom.
November 4, 2008 may be that bottom.
Yep, looks like LeBoutillier may need a little while longer to come around on McCain. Somehow, though, we suspect he'll be endorsing McCain by election day, if only because he thinks Obama is worse.
