Evidently Rush Limbaugh and several other conservative talk show hosts are just livid that McCain is going to be the likely nominee. I don't listen to Rush, so I only know what he says by way of the liberal blogs and whatever medium gets on his case.
The latest person to get on Rush's case is an unlikely critic. Evidently, Bob Dole is not happy that the current crop of talk show hosts, to include Limbaugh, are disparaging McCain. And Dole has let him know.
I know everyone on the Right wants another Reagan, just like everyone on the Left wants another JFK. But if we know anything about politics, we know that Reagan was not so conservative, and JFK was not so liberal. In fact, there is no one left in the running for the GOP nomination that is a true conservative. So, for Rush or anyone else to make that claim is ridiculous.
Romney is a moderate, Huckabee raised his share of taxes as governor of Arkansas, and we all know that McCain has been moderate for years. The GOP have rejected others that supposedly have better conservative records, already. Maybe it's time for hardcore conservatives to consider that the country does not want more conservatism that meets their approval. I know that from where I sit, the people in the GOP do not appear to want it.
