Skip to comments.McCain erupts: Conservatives are lying to America
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 GOPs 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, heres 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:

And the GOP wants us to do it all over again with these RINO’s
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.
Can’t u listen to his vitriol and figure it out for yourself?
Projecting again Juanito?
It is too late to retire with grace... so just retire.
I’m sorry Obama won, but I’m not sorry McCain lost.
Sorry Juan old boy. The only reason I voted for you in 08 was because Sarah Palin was on the ticket. If it hadn’t been for Palin, I WOULD HAVE STAYED HOME!
Forced to choose between principle, and the Georgetown chatterati, John McCain will invariably choose the latter.
I’m surpried he didn’t have his buttbuddy Goober standing next to him smiling. I bet it took a long time for him to get Goobers lips pried off his rear.
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.
Ole Juan D-Rat Arizona, is not right in the head,This is getting worse by the day,He will never ever carry any weight again with the Patriots,he has cast his Lot!
Go to hell, McCain.
Oh, man. Get out the Krylon and spray-paint this guy Commie-Red.
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.
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.
How the (bleep) did the senseless dope, become the GOP candidate in 2008?
Well, a Keating Financial College gigolo should know all about US Fed Gov’t budgeting.
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.
Juan is an insane idiot, a frigging moron, always has been always will be.
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.
McCain is a real pofs.
What a choice we were presented with in 2008.
I hate to tall you but Juan Jumped the Shark before he ran for Pres in '08.
Let’s not forgive all the claims this jackass made about being Conservative during the AZ Senate primaries.
This senior punk should retire.
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.
Obama won for two reasons: George W. Bush and John McLame! Bush was not a good president and I say that having voted for him both times.
Quit twisting the truth, McCain, you blow hard. We all know all you guys do is say what you are doing is what the other guy is doing.
Well if McStain says the Dems won’t go for it he ought to know. Being a Democrat himself. What a loser!!!
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.
He’s not helping ANYTHING or anyone.
“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.
Ahh when the fruit gets squeezed the juice comes out. As if we didnt know already with The Maclervick.
Bush became part of the problem, the day he called patriotic American conservatives “vigilantes”.
A big, stubborn, unhelpful part of the problem.
KEEP OUT THE BUSHES.
Yes, yes, yes, yes, ...
Any conservative that isn’t deceiving himself is finding a refuge and stocking it with food and water.
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.
And I guaran-dam-tee you Juan has his fully stocked.
The republican establishment thought this “man” was the perfect person to represent their party in the last election.
As for the Mac attack we say, ‘out with the old and in with the bold’. Take a hike old man and take a few of the cross-the-aisle bloated geezers with you. For the times they are a changin’...
Sorry Juan old boy. The only reason I voted for you in 08 was because Sarah Palin was on the ticket. If it hadnt been for Palin, I WOULD HAVE STAYED HOME!
Same, although I would have voted down ticket.
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.
Oh goodie, by attacking the Tea Party people the McCainac gets the LSM to really, really, love him, again,
Well, it didn’t take him long, did it?
Gee... no bias there. /s
You are too kind.
