McCain: 'The people spoke' (MSNBC cheers on McLame, of course)
MSNBC's The Maddow Blog ^ | September 25, 2013 | Steve Benen

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) heard Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) argue last night that his critics remind him of Nazi appeasers, and to his credit, the Arizona Republican criticized his right-wing colleague this afternoon, calling Cruz's comments "a great disservice."

But that's not all McCain said (thanks to my colleague Mike Yarvitz for the heads-up).

Love how even after they have added Al Sharpton and Melissa Harris Perry they are still hellbent on creating an image of being the least biased, most impartial news network there is.

Can’t we just trade this senile old warmonger and another RINO to be named later, in exchange for Joe Manchin?

Reid is upset with the Tea Party “anarchists” McCain is upset with the Tea Party, McConnel is upset with the Tea Party...dare I say they are doing exactly what they were sent to DC to do...shake things up and destabilize the status quo that is so out of touch with the American people?

I don’t remember obamacare being a part of the campaign. I remember romneycare being substituted for obamacare.

Mccain knows this is his last term so he’s going to tell everyone who has voted for him over the years “Fooled you, didn’t I!”

McCain is as he has always been a collaborator.
Why is anyone surprised.

Other than McCain Feingold’s restrictions on the 1st amendment, just what the eff has McCain done as a US Senator? Time for the insane coot to relocate to an old folks home and get him on thorazine.

Every time the people speak on ObamaCare in polls they summarily reject it, McLame.
Doesn't that count for anything in your progressive noggin?
Elections can be stolen.
ACORN vote fraud (dead Dem voters, felon Dem voters, multiple votes per individual, etc., etc.)
IRS suppression of Tea Party organizing
disenfranchisement of the military vote, etc., etc.
It happens all the time.
Obama is a fraud, and you are his toadie, Juan.

Screw you McQueeg. First, "The People" never spoke on this. 0bama, Reid and Pelousy rammed this thing, which no one read, down our throats without a single GOP vote in either house of Congress. It's NOT settled.

Second, "The People" have spoken as more and more news of the LIES of 0bamcare come out and real current events show it to be a complete 'trainwreck' ... which "The People" OPPOSE! ...Pew, CNN & Rasmussen Polls All Show That Americans Don't Like ObamaCare

This is why we must stop electing the “lesser of two evils”

Because the “people spoke” and the Lesser Evil is still Evil.

The people chose evil and they get evil.

That’s right, Senator McCain. The People spoke, and I appreciate your honoring the victors with obsequious servitude. It makes us all feel to “peaceful.” I love it when we all go along to get along.

I am so happy we are all now members of the Uniparty - it has been a long time coming, and we are so pleased, as a group, that you lead such an harmonious group. I, like you, hate people who fight for principles, especially those principles advanced by the candidates to get elected.

Please tell all those who will be harmed by Obamacare to be quiet, as this is for the public good...it is like the wonderful story of Robin Hood, who robbed from the rich, to give to the poor.

I know that story was originally meant to rectify the original theft by the rulers, but I like the new meaning, that it was merely to re-distribute wealth, from the greedy to the needy.

Senator, may I be your Friar Tuck?

WTF is McCain talking about???? What a cowardly limp-spine excuse. If he truly believes all battles were decided and ended with the 2012 elections, than why the hell doesn’t he retire and get the f out of DC?

The "people spoke" again in 2010, McLame.

Or did you think all those Republicans were elected to the House of Representatives for promising Skittles and unicorns?

You SOB, if “the people spoke”, why aren’t you willing to accept the results and use Obamacare for yourself?

He was just pitiful on Cavuto, saying the American people don’t want a shut down. 90% of Americans will have no idea if there is a shut down. He was bragging about how he fought BOCare too.

He also sided with the Democrats against the Bush tax cuts and forced the 10 year sunset...essentially creating the class warfare argument Obama ran on twice.

McCain is nothing short of a traitor to conservatism. He’s an unmitigated disaster to our country and a complete horse’s ass.

John McCain is an embarrassment to the Republican Party..he should just switch sides already. He tanked the 2008 election ON PURPOSE because he wanted Obama to win..it was SO beyond obvious when he said “You dont have to fear an Obama Presidency” never in my life have I seen such a tank job..The ONLY ONE on that disaster of a campaign that wanted to WIN was Sarah Palin, she had no idea that this campaign was a disaster from the start and they were tanking..she wanted to win, McCain wanted to fail

The people spoke based on an information black-out by the collaberating media.

The fools are the people who voted for this turd knowing full well he is no friend of conservatives and never was. I was never for him. Were you? Were you because Sarah was?

I know she is now starting to speak out about him. That is a good thing. She needs to disengage from McCain. She paid her dues to him.
