McCain Hurls F-Bomb at Cornyn Over Immigration Bill
Foxnews.com

Posted on 05/18/2007 3:25:09 PM PDT by harwood

Major Garrett just mentioned this on Fox News. Evidently Cornyn was angry at McCain for leaving him out of the loop. McCain responded with a profanity-laced retort.

“I am not a McCain fan, but this hardly fits his character or demeanor. Your failure to supply a URL link to the original article places this headline in question.”

Sure it fits his character and demeanor.

His anger issues are legendary and dogged him in ‘00 too.

Did you just fall off the turnip truck?

When John is introduced at the next Repub debate, he needs to be met with the loud chant of “amnesty, amnesty, amnesty!”

Boo him off.

McCain never has been really good at anything except screwing up. He could not fly, he was a lously POW and he'd a crappy Republican. The only good thing about McCain is that he does not cross-dress....

The best of the day.

Yes, on a certain level I have great respect for McCain. But he’s “damaged goods” in more ways than one, and therefore absolutely not the guy to be president. One of those reasons is the obvious long record of screwing conservatives and helping liberals, whatever his reasons. Another reason is probably the damage he suffered in his unimaginable POW experience. This wouldn’t be true of all POWs by any means, but I bet it’s true of McCain.

As I recall this was an issue in 2000 and a reason why he did not gain the support of his Senate colleagues.

When McCain was in the primary race in 2000 The Indianapolis Star had an article about how the media would hang out with McCain during down time. They liked him when the cameras were off because of his raunchy jokes, coarse conversations, and on and on. Pretty much decided it for me.

“Lots of people think that way.”

Do they? I didn’t realize that others thought that, as well. I respect him for his service, his sacrifice, and his terrible ordeal, but I don’t want, as my president, a man who has been held in enemy hands for years. If I were younger, I might have a more modern and enlightened view of that matter, but, alas, I’m not and I don’t.

This isn't the first time, he has been know to have his "little" outbursts in the past.

Besides, you can be sure of one thing with John McCain. John McCain is for one thing ... John McCain. Possibly another reason he is not "Presidential Timber", except in his own mind.

John McCain's Temper Preceded Vietnam

By his own account, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the front-runner for the 2008 presidential race, had trouble controlling his anger long before he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Back in 1999, McCain allowed reporters from the Arizona Republic, New York Times, and The Associated Press to review 1,500 pages of his medical and psychiatric records from his service in the military.

McCain would not allow reporters to copy the records. Only a few papers ran details relating to his temper.

The documents, which include the results of annual psychiatric exams after he was released from a North Vietnamese prison in 1973, indicate McCain was not diagnosed with any psychiatric disorder and had adjusted well to his ordeal. McCain's imprisonment began in October 1967 when he was shot down over Hanoi. However, in response to the question, "What traits do you have that others object to?" McCain answered, "Quick temper."

In one of the documents, a Navy psychiatrist, Dr. P.F. O'Connell, who examined McCain in 1973, said McCain thought he had made progress in controlling his anger during his captivity. "He learned to control his temper better," the evaluation said. McCain learned while a prisoner "to not become angry over insignificant things: not ‘to go to the mat' over some minor provocation by a guard that resulted in needless torture."

Incidents

A July 5 NewsMax.com article quoted former Sen. Bob Smith, a New Hampshire Republican who served with McCain on the Senate Armed Services Committee, as saying, "I have witnessed incidents where he has used profanity at colleagues and exploded at colleagues . . . He would disagree about something and then explode. It was incidents of irrational behavior. We've all had incidents where we have gotten angry, but I've never seen anyone act like that."

McCain's outbursts often erupted when other members rebuffed his requests for support during his bid in 2000 for the Republican nomination for president, the story said. "People who disagree with him get the ‘f*** you,'" said former Rep. John LeBoutillier, a New York Republican who had an encounter with McCain when he was on a POW task force in the House.

"He had very few friends in the Senate," said former Sen. Smith, who dealt with McCain almost daily. "He has a lot of support around the country, but I don't think he has a lot of support from people who know him well."

An Aug. 2 NewsMax story quoted Andrew H. "Andy" Card Jr., President Bush's former chief of staff, as saying he also has observed McCain's outbursts of anger. "Sometimes he was pretty angry, but I felt as if he was putting on a show," Card said. "I don't know if it was an emotional eruption or it was for effect."

I distinctly remember the precise moment when I knew that I would never vote for McCain.

2000 primary season. The dust-up over the South-Carolina or Michigan voicemail campaign (perhaps by Pat Robertson in support of Bush and against McCain??) was in full force, and Mike Reagan had McCain on his radio show. It was afternoon drive time in Los Angeles. I think McCain was on some campaign bus somewhere.

Reagan asked him some reasonable but tough questions on a range of issues — i.e. not softball but not antagonistic. McCain went off the deep end, accusing Mike of being in league with those evil people who left voicemails demeaning his character. He was literally unhinged. My first thought was, “we can never let this guy have his finger on the button.”

“Sam Johnson, Congressman from Texas (a true American patriot) was a former POW in Vietnam. I worked on Sam’s first campaign; I’ve seen his twisted fingers that are a result of the torture he endured. I can assure you that Sam is nothing like McCain. McCain’s temper issues are of his own making. Don’t blame his POW status for that.”

I totally agree with you. Many years ago I was fortunate enough to become a friend of the late General Harold K. Johnson, former Army Chief of Staff and former prisioner of war. For 43 months he was a prisoner of the Japanese and a survivor of the Bataan march. At the time of his capture he was a Lt Col. That he rose to four star rank and became the Chief of staff after all of that abuse was a tribute to the man’s character. He was a gentle, but strong man until cancer took him away.

I suspect McCain is voicing displeasure with Sen. Cornyn's statement regarding the bill which hasn't been crafted or brought to the floor yet......

Thursday, May 17, 2007
Print this item Forward this item

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the following statement today regarding the announcement by Senator Kennedy and others that an agreement has been reached on comprehensive immigration reform legislation:

“While I appreciate the hard work by my colleagues as we spent countless hours negotiating this very difficult issue, I have serious concerns with the principles outlined in today’s announcement. 

“I simply cannot, and will not, support any legislation that repeats the mistakes of the 1986 amnesty.  So we have to make a basic determination:  Will this bill restore respect for our laws?  Or will it have the opposite effect, and encourage still more disregard for our immigration and border security laws,  placing us within a few years in the same untenable position we’re now in?” 

“I believe today’s announcement is somewhat premature because specific legislative text has yet to be drafted on a number of key details.  Until I have the opportunity to review this text, I will withhold from making more detailed comments.  Clearly, however, there will be an opportunity to introduce amendments to this legislation, and I expect there will be a number of areas where that will be necessary.”

I heard the report, too, but I think the #1 post got the story backwards.

I thought I heard Garrett report that McCain was mad a Cornyn because McCain felt the bill had changed from the original McCain-Kennedy bill that he worked on. Cornyn said that it was McCain's fault for missing all the negotations because he was too busy running for President. That's when McCain dropped the F-bomb on Cornyn.
