AZ-Sen. 2010: McCain calls for civility in health care debate (McCain wants to "respect" Rats)
CNN - Political Ticker ^ | 2010-03-25

Posted on 03/25/2010 5:43:38 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Washington (CNN) – Sen. John McCain called for a more civilized political discourse on Monday after members of Congress who voted for health care reform reported incidents of harassment and threats of violence.

"There is a lot of anger and passion out there," McCain said on CNN's "John King USA." "Let's change that into a spirited and healthy respectful campaign season between Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives. Let's really go at it, but let's do it with respect, that's the key to it."

McCain noted that he has held thousands of town hall meetings during his long political career. "The only thing I ask people to do is be respectful," he said.

The Arizona Senator wasn't so optimistic about the future of bipartisanship among legislators in Washington. The prospects for immigration reform or financial regulatory reform appear dim, he said, because Democrats have failed to reach across the aisle since President Obama took office.

Yeah, you’re right, Juan. We should treat the Rats with respct if for no other reason than they have been so civil is their discourse with conservatives.

To hell with the bastard rats.

Right! That butt-kisser McCain in his campaign specifically assured us all that Obama is not a socialist/marxist and that O would be a good president. McCain is largely responsible for O becoming president, because he did not do his job as the Republican candidate to be a real adversary, to challenge and expose the dems. That was McCain’s job, in which he was criminally negligent. I don’t believe that Americans should be respectful or tolerant of the opposition that is openly trying to overturn the American way of life. What kind of a dope would make a claim like that and what kind of idiotic sheep would submit to it..

Why do Republicans do this? It makes them look stupid and guilty. The whole Healthcare bill was an uncivil act. It is 2500+ pages of threats aimed squarely at our liberty and our individual sovereignity. The bill is not only irresponsible but foolish given the economic state of this country. It is the ultimate selfish poltical act that places the very well being and the future of this country at risk. If we can not be angry at this then what will be enough for us to stand up and stop these servants of the beast?

Yeah, let’s be respectful John. That’s what got us where we are.....trying to deal with the Demonrats, reaching out, crossing the aisle and all that crap! What is it that you and your fellow moderates (liberals) don’t get about the Demonrats??? They’d sell their souls to the devil for power and working with the Republicans ain’t on their agenda. You lost the election because you were respectful (stupid) and chose not to expose BO for what he really is so excuse me if I don’t take your advice. I have a 14 year old granddaughter whose opinion I trust more.

Are the rats considerate to those with differing opinions? NO! Was McLame considerate to those of us who wanted the fence put up between the US and Mexico? NO! I seem to recall us being called “racist” because we oppose amnesty. I have the privilege of voting AGAINST this jerk. I hope that he is kicked to the curb once and for all, and takes his moronic daughter with him as well.

I am not going to "respect" anyone that does not "respect" the constitution. Much less you pukes that swear (via oath) to protect and defend the constitution. I'm sending more $$ to JD now. I'm praying that this is your (McCain) last session in the senate douche bag!!
