Skip to comments.AZ-Sen. 2010: McCain calls for civility in health care debate (McCain wants to "respect" Rats)
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.

McCain is a dope.
Up yours, you two-faced RINO snake!
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.
Entirely too many reacharounds for comfort.
Respect is earned, not demanded
What has congress done respectable lately?
And yet, Sarah Palin is still supporting this SOS?
Thanks for nothing Juan.
Go home now. You've done enough.
I’m sending JD Hayworth some more money.....
We're all just evil people, yuh know? Must be hard to be Our Standard Bearer, poor boy.
dude, you really need to figure out the italics thingy....get a grip.
FU McCain. Don’t expect people to be civil while they turn this country into marxist Argentina.
Yup. I sent J.D. $100 a few days ago. I’ll hit him again before much longer.
Juan, it is time to retire. Please. Serve your country just one more time and GO HOME!
What an ASS!! (not YOU of course, but "Scarface").
Good riddens to this guy.
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..
"He (0bama) is a decent person, and a person that you do not have be scared as President of the United States"... - John McCain Oct. 10, 2008
Is he treating JD with the same respect?
8 months to retirement Juan. Keep talking...
"Aw, don't voory so much. This is all very civil, ja? Vee vill "respekt" you in zee morning."
Sheesh. What's this asshole McCain expect us to do, when our country and liberties are being stolen right out from under us!? I've heard enough out of Arizona to fill my toilet with three bowls' full of vomit.
Are you listening Sarah?
I know John McCain was tortured in Viet Nam. Did they take his balls?
This is what McNut has always done, let everyone run over him.If his Father had not been an Admiral, John would have been the scullery washing pots.
That's the most soothing thing I have read here in a long time. May it be so.
The domestic enemies of the people do NOT deserve civility.
I hope Juan doesn’t get together with his buddy Eric Holder and decide that the Geneva/Hague conventions apply to this “debate” (”What debate?” - A little Ray Stevens lingo there).
I don’t respect those that are stealing my earnings and private healthcare.
>> What’s this asshole McCain expect us to do, when our country and liberties are being stolen right out from under us!?
That is THE question.
Hey MsCain: They codified 100+ new bureaucracies, many of which are vested with determining when to kill us. Respect? You can keep that with the hope and change and I’ll...
Oh, what’s the use.
I know the MSM is hammering this but i really don’t think it’s going to have much effect.
“Democrats have failed to reach across the aisle”
My dog could have predicted that for him. How embarrassing to make such a statement.
Oh, now that one is a keeper.
Sarah, I’m so very disappointed in you!
McCain is a doddering old fool. Resign already and go drink lots of your wifee’s beer.
Sarah, please dump this nitwit.
This is the kind of slick politician which has Palin’s endorsement.
They must have taken out his backbone.
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?
“Let’s change that into a spirited and healthy respectful campaign season between Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives.
That’s what got us here in the first place.
Let’s tear em to pieces and rip em a new one.
r385, Indeed you are the beacon of light in the darkness of RINO-ism and your constant vigilence in keeping the spotlight on this buzzard is greatly appreciated.
Well put....and I share the same, thanks rabs! Appreciate keeping the watch on McAmnesty
In August we can get some leadership instead of bipartisanship
McCain is right on board with Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Who is he trying to kid?
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.
Let the CONSERVATIVE Republican leadership know that we support Sen Jim DeMint by signing his Repeal ObamaCare Pledge.
Dont let the RINOS define us.
165,000 folks have made the pledge!!!!
How about you????
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.
All McCain seems to have learned in politics is “Thank you sir may I have another?”
