McCain Fires Back After Senate Rejects Proposal to Gut Earmarks [but "committed to working" w/Zero]
Fox News ^ | 2009-03-03

CAVUTO: Let me ask you. This comes at a time when there are all sorts of rumors in Washington that you and the president, though you started hitting it off — he had this dinner for you, I think, the night before inauguration, and then he was talking about how crucial your support was on the troop drawdown in Iraq — and then it seemed like the wheels kind of came off the goodwill wagon.

What has happened here?

MCCAIN: Neil, I am the loyal opposition.

I work with the president, as I did on the Iraq issue. I will work with him on other issues, health care reform and other — look, the country is in too bad a shape for us not to work together. I am committed to working with the president.

It does not mean that on something like on a pork-laden bill that wastes billions of taxpayers' dollars, that I would go along with anybody, including members of my own party.

MCCAIN: We proposed $420 billion of spending that frankly had more money in it for things like shovel-ready construction than the president's bill did. We also had a provision that, when we — this economy recovers — and it will recover — we were going to have to — after two quarters of positive growth, we would have an automatic path to balance budgets.

We are committing generational theft by accumulating this massive debt on our kids and grandkids.

McCain's defense: we proposed LESS spending! We're *better* than the Democrats!

Pathetic.

That goes for Juan's protégé Lindsey Graham too, right?

Jaun are you sure about the recovery? If it weren't for WWII, we may still be in the FDR depression.

Duhhh... how did it GET so bad, McCain you assclown?

THROUGH THE INCOMPETENCE AND CORRUPTION OF YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES “WORKING TOGETHER”, THAT’S HOW.

That’s like saying, “This hole is way too deep for us to stop digging...”

New rule.

Every McCain post should include a pic of his daughter, just to make it a little less nauseating
