Sen. John McCains 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.
Were 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 hes talking about it, how hes 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.
In several calibers...
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.

He is so depressed. He is so downtrodden, Ms. McCain said. “
To that I say; Jump—Jump—Jump. Go ahead John, JUMP!!
With all due respect, CNN; Sarah’s the best thing he’s done in the last 20+ years. Scratch that - Perhaps ever!
This makes me smile.
Well, Meghan, if the 'masses' WANT the 'hyper conservative wing' of the party to represent them, shouldn't you accept their decisions?
McCain is still taking oxygen.. so the TEA Party isn’t depressing him sufficiently enough.
Like she actually goes to church.
Best news I have heard all day.
It means somebody is doing something right.
Her father isn’t depressed and frustrated...he’s a senile moron who should be involuntarily committed.
Notice the obsession.
We're having an affect.
Oh I think he betrayed this country way before Ted Cruz came on the scene.
McCain’s facebook is a constant stream of criticism of his RINO actions and someone deletes it all regularly and it starts all over again. For those of you not on fb I am pretty sure his page is open to the public if you want to see what people post to him.
McCain depressed???? Poor baby.
I hope we put him OUT TO PASTURE.
Actually .. you may have stumbled onto something .. maybe he’s depressed becasue Ted Cruz is getting more camera time than he is ..??????
Although this seems like good news, JMcC has a way to go before he realizes that he may go down in history as someone who damaged the greatest nation on earth and was so self-absorbed that he posed as a Repub while secretly working for anti-American Dems so he could get on TV and eventually be nominated for Pres. History may not be kind to this former POW war hero. That should definitely depress him.
In other news, the Repub party is championing C Christie, the NJ governor who helped defeat the Repub Presidential candidate in 2012. Brilliant strategy and leadership, that Repub party, just brilliant. Well, at least they won’t be voting for some tea party candidate—banish the thought! Maybe they should bring Colin Powell in as VP candidate—I hear he is a Repub./sarc
What a messed-up party!

So we are doing it right! Feedback is great!
I think Meghan spelled Alzheimer wrong.
Who is Meghan sleeping with this week?
