Senator John McCain appeared on This Week today from Afghanistan, but before getting onto matters of foreign policy, he weighed in on the Republican contest going on in the United States and continued to speak out forcefully on an issue that has been part of his political identity for over a decade: campaign finance reform. McCain has not been the biggest fan of Super PACs, and McCain today blasted the Supreme Court for its decision in the Citizens United case two years ago.
When Jake Tapper asked McCain about how the GOPs divisive contest may end up handing the election to President Obama, McCain admitted he was concerned about that possibility, but explained that despite all the negativity in the race, it really boils down to the influence of Super PACs.
Ive been in very tough campaigns. I dont think Ive seen one that was as personal and as characterized by so many attacks as these are. And, quite frankly, one of the reasons is the Super PACs. And why do we have the Super PACs? Because of the ignorance and naïvete of the United States Supreme Court in the Citizens United campaign.

This is the result of open primaries. JD had the base and then along came the interlopers and the same dirty tricks campaign that Mitt is waging against his opponents was waged against JD.
In 8 years Bush never vetoed anything and was hoping the SC would do the dirty work he didn’t want to be the bad guy...
Since most new government laws range somewhere between unnecessary and disastrous, if I were President, my paradigm would be that I had to be convinced on a case-by-case basis not to veto EVERYTHING (and I might attach a policy that any new law presented for signature had to be accompanied by the repeal of x number of old laws).
And most of that money was given by conservatives and other Republicans who assumed he was running a sincere campaign against the one. Then, in act of almost infinite perfidy, he turned around and used the money and ran an effective campaign when he's up against a conservative. Yeah, it's not hard to figure out what Juan is all about if you watch him.
Arizonans didn't really "reelect" him, at least not for the most part. He cheated in numerous ways.
You got my vote and don’t forget to negate all previous presidents executive orders.....
McCain hates free speech.
Blast from the past in light of Donald Trump and the PACs
