McCain vs. the Tea Party
New York Times ^

Posted on 07/27/2011 11:53:56 AM PDT by Windy City Conservative

Mr. McCain mocked Tea Party-allied Republicans in the House for believing — wrongly, he said — that President Obama and Democrats will get the blame for a default if Republicans refuse to increase the nation’s debt ceiling. By that flawed logic, “Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements and the Tea Party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth,” he said, quoting a Wall Street Journal editorial. “This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into G.O.P. nominees,” he jeered, referring to two losing Tea Party candidates for the Senate in 2010.

Shove it up your smelly Obama, McRINO...if you can find room besides your head.

Go away and die somewhere, please.

He wouldn’t be saying this if he was up for re-election anytime soon. What a two-faced SOB.

McCain has “reached across the isle” so many times, I think he's permanently residing on the left side of the isle. It's time for McCain and some other RINO’s to hang it up.

The Tea Party's greatest achievement to date is to flush out those anti-American self centered politicians and make them show themselves for what they truly are.

How soon is McCain going to announce that he is officially in the Democrat Party, since he has been carrying their water anyway? Is he still supporting us arming the Muslim Brotherhood (aka al-Qaeda) in Libya? How soon will he retire?

McCain is correct. The media will certainly see to it that Democrats wont get any blame.

See, this is why I am against the Boner plan to compromise with the dems.

To understand that RINO’s are for raising the debt ceiling, and Tea Partiers are against it is easy and simple to understand.

Now I am convinced that the only reason the rats and rino are going nuts over this is because of their investments are going too tank and they can’t touch them.

Third party out of the blue Presidential bids don't work, and yes, we should clean up the GOP. But, I see nothing wrong with a third party judiciously cropping up and gaining steam at the local and state levels. They could caucus with the GOP when possible, or grow on their own, as issues dictate without giving away a Presidential election.

Shut the hell up McLame. People stopped caring what you had to say decades ago. You’re like Jimmy Carter. You keep talking yet nobody wants to hear you.

Just shut up and go away.

Oh, and take Carter and Ron Paul with you.

When Rino fools like McStain drive the Tea Party out of the GOP, it will still be our fault because we didn’t fall in line like good little ungrateful children.

I have come to despise this RINO like all the rest of them. The only thing they stand for is; what’s in it for me? I remember him telling us over and over what a good man Obama was. Well, for those that listened to him and has been proven a liar, how do you like Obummer the communist now?

And I voted for Sarah, not McRino.

McInsane is a worthless scum bag. This guy (can’t really call him a man) is a corrupt degenerate who left his wife after she became crippled and married a junky thief. He was the only one of the Keating Five who personally profited from his illegal acts.

He is a stain on the society and a disgrace to the Senate.
