Quote, Unquote

Conservative writer Ben Shapiro breaks down the 'drawbacks' of John McCain that Conservative Republicans should consider before voting for him:

"his advanced age, his campaign finance reform record, his Gang of 14, his wishy-washy stance on homosexuality, his anti-conservative economic populism and his anti-torture positions."

That's the new conservative thinking. Here's a bit of the old:
"Considerate people, before they declare themselves, will observe the use which is made of power; and particularly of so trying a thing as new power in new persons, of whose principles, tempers, and dispositions they have little or no experience, and in situations, where those who appear the most stirring in the scene may possibly not be the real movers."
-Edmund Burke
