Who’s Afraid of Phyllis Schlafly?

The “presumptive” Republican Presidential nominee, that’s who. And the man he promised the VP slot to in return for quitting the race.

How can we expect these no-show candidates to take on Osama Bin Laden and other world leaders when they’re afraid to show up and answer questions from Phyllis Schlafly?” asked Rabbi Aryeh Spero of the Jewish Action Alliance, and Values Voter debate panelist. Rick Scarborough, President of Vision America, and Values Voter Debate Committee member added, “If you care about our votes, you need to care about our values enough to show up.

Who is Phyllis Schlafly? Read this.

The four Republicans who didn’t show up for this debate are all part of the “Echo” crowd… John McCain, his two stalking horses (Fred Thompson and Rudy Giuliani), and his preferred VP choice (Mitt Romney).

McCain turned down a Values Voter Debate not once, but twice… on September 17th, 2007 and again on March 3, 2008, the day before the primaries in Texas, Ohio, Vermont, and Rhode Island.

I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I wasn’t paying attention to the Republican primary until late December 2007. I didn’t find out about the September 2007 Values Voter Debate until the beginning of March 2008. Here is a brief clip from that debate, showing Phyllis Shlafly asking a question and Mike Huckabee’s response. Unfortunately, the debate moderator’s microphone was on and you hear his background conversation during Mike Huckabee’s response…it’s a bit distracting, but the video is still worth watching.

    Wow…..you sure spend a lot of time posting on this blog that nobody reads. You are sad, pathetic creature.

  2. “this blog that nobody reads”… but you’re reading it, so I guess you think you are a nobody… that’s sad.

    It’s sad that you feel the need to create an email address
    Jesusfreaksarenuts@yahoo.com
    and come here to mock me. My heart truly goes out to you.

    God loves you, and if you stop long enough to listen, you’ll hear Him knocking on your heart. When He knocks, let Him in.

    A commenter on another post says it much better than I can:

    “They say McCain reads the blogs, so here goes —

    Senator McCain- Don’t let the campaign kibbitzers muddle things up.

    First and foremost, Sarah Palin shares your values. She killed the bridge to nowhere. Need we say more?

    As for the politics, Sarah Palin transcends geography. Her constituency, like yours, goes beyond state lines.

    She will get your ticket access to voters all over the country based on who she is and what she stands for. Because she’s young, a woman, a mother with young kids, she will grab media attention more than any other potential candidate.

    Gov. Palin also has a son in the active duty military. You have very wisely taken your son’s service in Iraq off the table as a campaign talking point. That is and should be respected. But others can talk about it and reflect on what it means.

    A McCain-Palin administration would be the first in memory which has family members in uniform during wartime from both the President and Vice President. That would be a powerful statement as to the importance of national service, especially in uniform.

    Most importantly, any Vice President should be ready to step up and serve in the event she is needed. Frankly, who is really ever ready? Gov. Palin is as ready as anybody, she is a quick learner, and in her public career has exhibited the courage and decisiveness needed for a great leader.

    Godspeed to you in your campaign and in making this important decision.”

  4. Perhaps Sarah Palin could be Mike Huckabee’s VP.
    I’d be happy with either her or Michael Steele as Huckabee’s VP.
