McCain, Cornyn Engage in Heated Exchange (F-Bomb)
Washington Post ^ | 05/18/2007 | Paul Kane

Posted on 05/18/2007 4:27:35 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) hasn't spent much time in the Capitol this year as he seeks the GOP presidential nomination. But one of his rare appearances this week provided a pretty salty exchange with a fellow Republican.

During a meeting Thursday on immigration legislation, McCain and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) got into a shouting match when Cornyn started voicing concerns about the number of judicial appeals that illegal immigrants could receive, according to multiple sources -- both Democrats and Republicans -- who heard firsthand accounts of the exchange from lawmakers who were in the room.

At a bipartisan gathering in an ornate meeting room just off the Senate floor, McCain complained that Cornyn was raising petty objections to a compromise plan being worked out between Senate Republicans and Democrats and the White House. He used a curse word associated with chickens and accused Cornyn of raising the issue just to torpedo a deal.

Things got really heated when Cornyn accused McCain of being too busy campaigning for president to take part in the negotiations, which have gone on for months behind closed doors. "Wait a second here," Cornyn said to McCain. "I've been sitting in here for all of these negotiations and you just parachute in here on the last day. You're out of line."

McCain, a former Navy pilot, then used language more accustomed to sailors (not to mention the current vice president, who made news a few years back after a verbal encounter with Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont).

"[Expletive] you! I know more about this than anyone else in the room," shouted McCain at Cornyn. McCain helped craft a bill in 2006 that passed the Senate but couldn't be compromised with a House bill that was much tougher on illegal immigrants.

What if the criminal aliens, crooks, terrorists and narco-gangsters don’t want amnesty? Why should they? Wouldn’t they have to pay taxes? How can you force criminals to become citizens? Why would you? If these people really wanted to be real citizens they wouldn’t use phony ID’s.

Best discription yet of the McCain mindset, from Hugh Hewitt . . .

"Deal's done. I am the guy. I made it happen. My opinion mattered, not yours. What I do in the middle of a campaign for president has nothing to do with politics. My critics are all motivated by politics. Since I have already made up my mind, no debate is necessary, so shut up. Republicans especially shut up. This is how things get done in D.C.: You roll over for Democrats. And by the way, cutting half the fence and leaving the other half subject to the whims of the anti-border security bureaucracy equals protecting national security, just like the Gang of 14 was good for the confirmation process and McCain-Feingold good for the First Amendment. So, if you didn't hear me the first time: Shut up. Sit down. I'm your nominee. I'm John McCain and I approved of this message."

Maybe I am just having a brain fart, but what are they talking about. And who is 'He', McCain or Cornyn. I can't believe the Washington Post wrote this.

Also from the article....
After making a few comments, McCain left the Capitol to head to New York for presidential campaign events. Later that day, McCain missed his 43rd straight vote, this on the $2.9 trillion budget outline.

Looks like the notorious McQueeg short fuse is more and more bubbling to the surface.

He may have been a military hero once, but now he's merely a disgrace.

From “the Corner”

“A witness claims that “What is missing is the fact McCain was criticizing Cornyn’s very simple but important request -a request he had made for three months in meetings without McCain being present for the most part - that important enforcement provisions be included. McCain called his sensible request ‘Chickensh*#” and dismissed it...”

Thanks, I was drawing a blank until that. BTW, who do you decipher said it. I assume it was McCain, but by using 'he' the brilliant writer makes it so it is not clear.

No doubt McCain told Cornyn he was wasting everyone’s time over some “chickensh!t” provision about number of judicial appeals, getting lost in the weeds.

But what people like McCain don’t understand is that the Rats, with their legions of immigration advocacy lawyers that are entrenched in the federal bureaucracies, LIVE in the details of this kind of legislation. Unrecognized loopholes craftily slipped into legislation by Rats have defeated Republican intent on legislation after legislation.

Seems like a nice opportunity to tell my favorite John McCain Story

My John McCain (up close and personal) story, from the 2000 South Carolina Primary.

Greenville SC - the 2000 Presidential primary - John McCain had just beaten ‘W’ in the NH primary and the “Straight Talk Express” rolled into South Carolina.

I was a McCain supporter - positive that he was the real deal.

I drove to a McCain speech and public appearance. It was a day I will never forget as long as I live.

That day I witnessed John McCain behave unlike any appearance I had ever seen on TV - the man was unhinged.

After a 15 minute canned speech - he decided to address his competition in the primary - George W. Bush. He did so by beginning with, “I am Luke Skywalker, and my opponents are members of the Empire. Together we will form the rebellion and defeat Darth Vadar”. He yelled this - first pumping - his voice full of anger - his face - beet red - and his eyes - well - they were scary.

The crowd instantly went from supportive - to bewildered.

He obviously didn’t pick up on the mood change - because he went on for another 5 minutes - ranting and raving about how everyone was lying about his record - his views - and he, “wasn’t going to take it any more” (remember the movie Network).

It was surreal.

When he finished - and with the prodding of an aid - he left the stage, while we in the crowd just stood there - stunned - and honestly - completely confused.

I asked a woman next to me: “what the hell just happened?” She answered: “that man is freaking nuts!”

I came home - walked in the house - sat on the couch and just looked at the wall. I suddenly realized - the man pushed on television - was not the man at all.

I have told this story many times - to many people - and I have heard the same story told back to me by others who have seen similar John McCain episodes.

I am not given to criticize anyone lightly ladies and gentlemen.

I am sure John McCain is a good man - but listen to me - and please believe me.

JOHN MCCAIN is NOT FIT TO LEAD THIS NATION.

John McCain is unstable. John McCain is freaking nuts!

Want to hear the sequel?

Three weeks ago McCain was in Greenville SC - I went to Toys-R-Us - bought a toy light-saber (Star Wars Toy) wrapped it up in nice paper and left for him at his hotel.

Don’t know if he got it.

But - I laughed my butt off doing it.

He has a terrible temper. Someone in our church used to live in his district and he would argue with him at town meetings. His language toward my friend was pretty horrific. Not like our gentleman in office now.

You know I think that might be right - but damn it’s hard to say in this politically correct world we live in.
