Meghan McCain says tea party has dad ‘depressed’ and ‘frustrated’
BIZPAC Review ^ | 10/25/2013

Posted on 10/25/2013 7:46:29 PM PDT by Altura Ct.

Sen. John McCain’s daughter says her dad is “depressed” and “frustrated” with the tea party faction of the Republican Party, which she called “the hyper-conservative wing.”

A state of mind many in the tea party can relate to in their radical pursuit of a more fiscally responsible, limited federal government.

“We’re both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses,” Meghan McCain said during an interview with ABC and Yahoo News.

Ms. McCain, who has her own reality show “Raising McCain,” said the last time her father was so depressed about the state of politics was after his failed 2008 presidential bid, according to the Washington Times.

“He is so depressed. He is so downtrodden,” Ms. McCain said. “The way he’s talking about it, how he’s never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office.”

An indication that McCain grew accustomed to a more apathetic constituency willing to place blind trust in progressive politicians on both sides of the aisle who have steered this country to the precipice of financial ruin.

As for her 77-year-old father running for reelection in 2016, something McCain recently said he is considering, his daughter said she has reservations about it.

“My father has more energy than I do,” Ms. McCain said. “So it is not his age, it is just the idea of having another dirty tea party election.”

After all, one can only take so much of accountability.

Maybe he’ll steal all her ice cream and oreos and she can lose a little weight while he pudges out.

Probably most frustrated because he’s not a Democrat.

McCain is one of the best at degrading and demeaning those Republicans who disagree with him. Am I supposed to care that the Tea Party upsets him?? Boo Hoo.

Because of his shenanigan's, he has many Americans 'depressed' and 'frustrated'.

McCain the only thing you’ve done correctly, for the last eight years, was to nominate Sarah Palin as your Vice Presidential nominee.

Every other thing you do, is irritating.

Stop being irritating.

I hate seeing such a sweet old guy all depressed and frustrated. He should resign immediately and apply for a job as a Wal-Mart greeter.

Meghan, honey, maybe you’re dad is “depressed” and “frustrated” because he is so wrong on so many issues.

Suggest he retire . . . . . . . . for the good of the country!

Good. I hope it drives him to quit and go home. My dislike for McCain is as high as just about anyone in politics. He’s a clueless dolt.

8 minute and 14 minute standing ovations for Cruz can't have helped his ego. I'm very pleased.

Meghan, sweetie, maybe you’re dad is “depressed” and “frustrated” because he is so wrong on so many issues.

Suggest he retire . . . . . . . .

It will be less “depressing” and “frustrating” than getting REJECTED BY THE VOTERS!

If I owned a rat’s a$$ I would give it to Ms. McCain for her opinion. Otherwise, no deal. It is past time for McCain Sr. to retire.

Your dad betrayed this country by stabbing Ted Cruz in the back. He has applauded Obama’s socialist agenda every step of the way.
Sorry you’ve become so detatched from reality you now see actual conservatism as ‘hyper-conservatism’, whatever the hell that means.

Dear Meghan: Here’s hoping the Tea Party depresses you and your treasonous old man all the way back to a permanent patio view of the Sedona New Age rock crystals. You can fight each other over the jello pudding cups.

You summed up my thought perfectly. It’s very depressing to think of who we had available to vote for.

2016? Um, oh please no JM. no Paul Ryan.

Well, Meghan, if the 'masses' WANT the 'hyper conservative wing' of the party to represent them, shouldn't you accept their decisions?
