McCain erupts: Conservatives are lying to America
The Washington Post ^ | 7/27/11 | Greg Sargent

Posted on 07/27/2011 8:06:56 PM PDT by Nachum

So the debt limit debate has come to this: John McCain, who you may recall was the GOP’s 2008 standard bearer, is now openly accusing conservatives of actively misleading America with their completely unrealistic demands, which he labeled “deceiving” and “bizarro.” In a seminal moment in this debate, here’s some video of McCain on the Senate floor today, unleashing an angry tirade at conservatives who are still holding out for a balanced budget amendment as part of any compromise on the debt ceiling. McCain accused them of “deceiving” America into believing such a thing can pass the Senate:

Did McLame say he would vote against a balanced budget amendment if it ever does come up for a vote?

This moron just got re-elected, and already he’s stabbing his constituents in the back. A text book case of Beltway Disease, if I’ve ever seen one.

I don’t know why he doesn’t just join the Democrats. At least then, the things he says would make some sort of sense.

KMAJM. There comes a point where it doesn’t really matter any more whether it will pass the Senate.

The Senate needs to consider single digit spending cuts and BB now, or a 40% spending cut sometime after August 2.

I remember in a 2008 debate lord McCain as Chairman of the Commerce committee bragged to US that he did not know economics. But he has made a career of itching about marking ears. I can only guess there are NO ear marks any longer now that the liberals are spending US into a black hole of debt.

Lord McCain needs to go and fix his Libyan war he has helped orchestrate.

This is a man who a week ago, while on the Sean Hannity radio show, was literally frightened by the prospect of whatever outcome came out of this saga. He was afraid of "what the people would think" (i.e., they would blame Republicans); he was wholly supportive of the McConnell proposal to allow the President to raise the debt limit on his own; he lamented to Hannity--who to Sean's credit, pressed McCain NOT to give and and raise the debt limit unconditionally--McCain essentially abdicated his role as a U.S. Senator, saying "someone needs to give me a better option!"

Whatever honorable service this man gave to his country decades ago, he sounded like a complete coward. He is not worthy to serve as a senator. He spoke like a man who had no understanding of the situation, and worse, no understanding of politics nor of the strength of the Republican's position. Left to him, he would completely cave.

Senator McCain, it's better to die on your feet, than to survive on your knees. You should've learned that from Viet Nam.

Disappointing, needless to say.

Yes, a balanced budget amendment doesn’t stand a chance, but it doesn’t mean we don’t try.

I haven’t always been in favor of one since it would mean painful cuts some years, but it’s clear we just can’t keep the credit cards under control, so cut anyway no matter how much it hurts. These deficits are out of control.

His behavior is evidencing, once again, someone who has been battered and abused.....an appeaser and whinner...."afraid of what people will think", which is self -serving. That's why he wil never stand on any issue and fight til it's done if he's opposed. He will always compromise or give up...or sit back andlet others do the deeds. He IS unfit for this office....and by his actions as a Republican Senetor he has pretty much wiped out the honor given for his time in Vietnam IMO.

Yes he is. Every bit as much as John Kerry.

I hesitatingly give John McCain credit for being a better man than Barack Hussein Obama, but I do not believe he is a good man, nor do I believe he should be allowed to be in any position of power over the lives/livelihoods of other human beings.

McCain was (far) more tenacious during his run-off against a “fellow” Republican, that he was at any time during his race against Obama.

IMHO he was not even trying to win against Obama.

He was making a statement. And he wanted to beat the ‘other’ REPUBLICANS in the primary. The race he really wanted to win in 2008, was the one against REPUBLICANS he has pretended to share a party with. So he could then win the race in 2010, AGAINST A REPUBLICAN.

McCain is a Democrat.

Arizona please fire him!!

America deserves McCain to be offered the opportunity to experience the private sector. Please.

Soonest possible.

He’s not helping ANYTHING or anyone.

Professional sellout.

“Fight with me, fight with me! he yelled at the 2008 GOP convention.

When Sarah went to fight, he pulled the rug out from under here. He was a spoiler for Obama, took a dive for the team, and showed once and for all his disloyalty.

He needs to bow before Obama and become a Democrat, just like the good little Comie Manchurian Candidate traitor he always has been.

Sarah Palin did not deserve to have the millstone of McCain tied around her neck.

This financial kabuki theater is exposing all the traitors, some of which have an R after their name.

Who cares what plans can pass the Senate? What matters is what plans can pass the House. Whatever those are, those are the choices the Senate will have. They can either choose to accept one of those, or not. If not, they’ll have to explain to their voters why they insisted on fantasy instead of reality.

You can thank the GOP party for their open primaries and left-leaning states being allowed to vote early. The GOP leadership is wholly against conservatism.

Tellingly, McCain cited today’s Wall Street Journal editoral excoriating conservative opponents of the Boehner plan as out of touch with reality for thinking they can do better. McCain’s angry tirade on the Senate floor today perfectly captures the rising frustration, anger, and panic of more responsible Republicans and GOP establishment figures as they come to terms with the true depths of the delusion that is now afflicting some on the right — and the danger it is now posing to our economy and country.

Gee... no bias there. /s
