McCain visits Obama team in Arizona to thank them for support on gun bill
The Washington Examiner ^ | April 24, 2013 | Joel Gehrke

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., had a warm meeting with Obama for America Organizing for Action volunteers in Arizona, as the senator and the members of President Obama’s former campaign apparatus thanked each other for their alliance in support of Obama’s desired gun legislation.

“The speakers commended Senator McCain for showing leadership on this issue, and made it clear that we’re still hopeful that, with his help and support, we will get a bipartisan law to protect our country and our local community,” OFA’s Erin Kelly wrote in a blog post today. “We were shocked and excited to see Senator McCain himself, who had been driving by his office on his way home and had seen the thank-you signs. The senator had pulled over to the side of the road to thank his constituents for our support.”

Organizing for Action is the Obama campaign rebranded as a nonprofit, officially nonpartisan advocacy group. A studious Senate maverick, McCain’s visit won’t endear him to the grassroots base in his own party. The OFA post provoked a mixed response among liberal activists....

Amazing how they side with the leftists in the Democrat party against their own GOP base and get away with it.

From support for criminal illegals to weapons for al Qaeda,
COUNT on McCain to be at the side of Obama.

Thanks a bit harsh. Wouldn’t dottering old fool be more descriptive - and truthful?

Johnny Mc is **well** past his prime and has been for years. He’d also a good indication just how far to the Left Arizona has drifted.

Another new low for McCain. He needs to change his party affiliation to commie/rat.

The unprincipled, senile old fool is desperately seeking media. If only he could have a scrap of the media love he lost to Obama, maybe a brief chill on the butt of Chris Matthews, and he could swell with pride again.

There is no doubt that McPain threw the 2008 Election to Obama HUSSEIN! What dirt did the Obama Machine have on him to Blackmail him and the entire GOP?? We know Cindy has a long term Lover who is more like her younger age! But, McPain has done a lot of slimmy actions in the Senate with his cohort, Lurch Kerry that must have made them hundreds of millions in kickbacks and bribes?

John McCain possesses a boundless sense of entitlement exacerbated by his successful planting - and subsequent ferocious tending - of the "maverick" and "war hero" memes. Whatever psychological problems the guy may have, he is neither senile nor stupid.

He is, however, a rather virulent statist of the first order... which is probably why Spooky Dude has dropped a coin or two in Johnny's cup now and then.

Just had a weird thought. McCain couldn’t get elected president as a Republican so maybe now he’s considering becoming a dem just in time for the next election when even the dems would like a more conservative (looking) puppet at the helm. McCain has shown he will play ball after all.

McCain’s approval rating in Arizona is below 20%, with both parties agreeing that he is a defective unit. However, with his wife’s money, anyone who runs against him will be so dragged through the mud that few still dare. He is mean, vicious and cruel to those that oppose him, and he has a vicious temper.

Tragically, only the grim reaper will be able to scrape him out of that senate seat.
