McCain calling Romney a Liberal is like a fat kid not liking's ludicrous

As the Florida race heats up between Romney and McCain, the mud that McCain is throwing is getting to be of Clintonian levels. McCain as downright lied about Romney's stance on the Iraq war and his non comment about time frames for pulling out. Mitt Romney clearly has stated numerous times the stupidity of publicizing dates for withdrawal since all the enemy would have to do is wait it out and strike after we left. When this tactic of McCain playing with the facts backfires as it did with phone calls to potential voters claiming supports taxpayer-funded abortions and opposes President Bush's tax cuts he just denies and goes onto another attack that may or may not be true. As we saw in South Carolina and the backlash of the Clinton attacks on Obama, this old school "say anything to get elected" rhetoric is beginning catch up with these candidates as the new media and the "google" search population can vett out untruths pretty easy with just a click of the mouse. A NcCain/Clinton race would be a civilized race as some have stated since one would probably concede to the other(McCain to Clinton) and they would end up on the same ticket Clinton-McCain...I'm actually getting a little ill just thiniking about it because I don't think it's that far-fetched.

There are now reports of voter "irregularities" going on. The independents are voting in the Republican Primary at the instruction of poll workers. See info below...

In northern Coral Springs, near the Sawgrass Expressway and Coral Ridge Drive, David Nirenberg arrived to vote as an independent. Nevertheless, he said poll workers insisted he choose a party ballot.

"He said to me, 'Are you Democrat or Republican?' I said, 'Neither, I am independent.' He said, 'Well, you have to pick one,''' Nirenberg said.

In Florida, only those who declare a party are allowed to cast a vote in that party's presidential primary.

Nirenberg said he tried to explain to the poll worker that he should not vote on a party ballot because of his "no party affiliation" status.

Nirenberg said a second poll worker was called over who agreed that independents should not use party ballots, but said they had received instructions to the contrary.

"He said, 'Ya know, that is kind of funny, but it was what we were told.' … I was shocked when they told me that." Nirenberg said he went ahead and voted for John McCain.
