No shocker here. First Read is telling us that the GOP members of the house have had their heads temporarily removed from their asses to get new orders:Line up behind McCain.
Standing with GOP House leaders John Boehner, Roy Blunt, and Adam Putnam, McCain said that he met with the group this morning and agreed that there was a lot of work to be done towards uniting the party.
This after Mr. 28% has, once again, lied to the American public and said that McCain is a “true conservative”. Of course, anyone who is unfortunate enough to be represented by those 3 already know that having their own thoughts goes against everything being an elected GOP politician is all about.
Because this is what the Washington post reported this morning:
At the request of his campaign, McCain (Ariz.) will visit the House Republican Conference, whose members include some who have said they felt physically ill at the prospect of the senator heading the ticket.
House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) will endorse him, citing his role as chairman of the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. House Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), whose rural district went heavily for former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee on Feb. 5, will also decline to endorse, as will House Republican Conference Chairman Adam H. Putnam (R-Fla.), who has stayed neutral since his first choice, former senator Fred D. Thompson (Tenn.), dropped out. Only the chief deputy whip, Rep. Eric Cantor (Va.), is on the McCain team.
