Arizona Senator John McCain, the man who lost to Barack Obama after trying to pull the "my friends" card on both his opponent and the media, is expressing concern about the negative tone of the GOP primary race.
Former Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) said Sunday he’s worried the negative tone in the GOP campaigns could help President Obama win a second term in the White House.
“I think there's reason to be concerned about it,” said McCain on ABC’s This Week.
"I've been in very tough campaigns. I don't think I've seen one that was as personal and as characterized by so many attacks as these are.”
Reality check: McCain wasn't tough against Obama, hence the reason he lost. Romney would be smart not to take McCain's advice on this issue.
This says it all
McCain = RINO = we don’t care what you have to say about anything...........
Aw shaddup you losin’ old coot, McCain
STFU Old man- and people of FR, please excuse my language.
McCain- I personally believe you INTENTIONALLY threw the election. I mean, what candidate would dare to offer the OTHER candidate to the American public DURING THE CAMPAIGN, saying, THE OTHER GUY WILL MAKE A GREAT PRESIDENT.
And then to foist your saggy mammaried daughter, with her inept language skills, on us??!!
Work on your marriage and leave this to serious adult Americans.
There is a reason your wife was pictured kissing someone else. And I believe we have ringside seats.
JM must hate me. He wants my head to explode.
This says it all:
McCain said. I admire Senator Obama and his accomplishments... he is a decent person, and a person that you do not have to be scared as President of the United States.
Yet he is not concerned with the state of the union? Just the bad words the GOP will use in this election cycle..
McCain needs to go.
I suggest that he lead the charge into Syria since he’s so hopped up to intervene.
Shut the hell up!
(Is that negative enough?)
GO TO HE//.
ROMNEY STARTED IT, YOU GRATUITOUS, PONTIFICATING, SANCTIMONIOUS, HYPOCRITCAL, FOSSIL IMCUMBENT, LYING, ROMNEY-BACKING BUSTARD.
Has he noticed the mouth on his daughter?
This ain’t a freakin game McCain, it’s about the survival and future of this country!
Can’t be said enough : FU McCain
This guy lost Indiana. Why the foxtrot would I take his advice?
I’m concerned that any conservative listens to this piece of dung.
Go away, McRino.
Your pal Dead Ted needs someone to help him ward off the flames.
Darn it that AZ sheriff caught multitasking was not on his radar. I heard NONE of his concerns with 17 + million that was spent in Florida recently to LIE about Newt.
Coming strait from the winner that knows....
John McCain, just shut up and go away.
Hey John, Go find that anonymous Senator that said if Romney lost Michigan the ring leaders of the RINO party should pick a new candidate and have a talk with that MF.
He is hurting the party.
Question of the ****ing century.
I'm concerned about why McShame defends Bamster more than he defends our liberties.
He is hurting the party.
It would not surprise me in the least if McLame found that anonymous Senator in the mirror.
WE take everything seriously Juan
In the words of Nelson Rockefeller's public relations head, Stuart Spencer, "We had to destroy Barry Goldwater as a member of the human race."
I recall that following the 1964 election a small number of liberal media types asking did they go too far trying to destroy Goldwater.
It don't git no more personal than that.
John McCain is very upset. The GOP RINO-plasty is about to dissolve, and this really upsets John-oh. A major paradigm shift, Washington GOP POLS are about to loose their “common ground” of selling our nation down the tubes and destroying the Constitution.
The more McCain whines, the more its good for our nation.I love the sound of McCain whining!
Look CDR Queeg no one stole the strawberries. You gave them away.
I thought airheaded McKeating’s airheaded daughter was Senator now?
LOL I was thinking that too.
‘I don’t think I’ve seen one that was as personal’...
What was he asleep during his 08 campaign????
Too stupid to realize his own shame.
The moron also lost a (by congressional district) electoral vote in NEBRASKA.
a failure !
Good point. And McCain should bring it up with state run media who want all the help they can get for Democrats to win.
Plus add to it that the SRM never vetted that arrogant, lazy, lying pos. Otherwise he would have never been elected
In other news, McCain is also worried that too much thrust might endanger NASA rockets; that too much bouyancy might enganger Navy ships; that too much reading might harm children's ability to learn; and finally, that too much common sense might utterly, completely destroy the election process.
I don’t know why McCain is always picking on us HOBBITS!!
John, go back to sleep. Nothing to see here.
“Former Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) said Sunday hes worried the negative tone in the GOP campaigns could help President Obama win a second term in the White House.”
In other words, Senator Inane is upset there is a GOP primary and his buddy Milt wasn’t simply annointed from the start.
If McPain is worried about negativity, he ought to start cleaning up in his own house. He ought to quit paying for his hefty daughter’s - oops, I mean, he ought to quit paying the hefty fees on his daughter’s phone/twitter account.
Hey Johnny Baby!
Sit TFD and STFU!! You simple minded, brain dead old sh*t!!
I think they really DID do a lobotomy on you in the Hanoi Hilton!!
Johnny, just GTFA!
(texteez for go the blip away)
Sorry mods, I’m calm down now. /rant>
Yeah, I was thinking he had a lot of nerve criticizing anybody for a “negative tone” after this:
“Sen.John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Monday refused to apologize for calling Tea Party lawmakers hobbits in a speech last month.
I am sorry if it was misunderstood. I am not sorry for what I said, McCain said at a town hall meeting in Gilbert, Ariz.
Why should I when its the facts? McCain said when asked to apologize, according to a video posted by Arizonas local 3TV News.
At the end of July, during the debt-limit debate, McCain criticized some members of the Republican Party for not supporting House Speaker John Boehners (R-Ohio) deficit plan by making a Lord of the Rings reference on the floor of the Senate.
At the time, McCain eviscerated some members of Congress as foolish and deceiving for believing that refusing to raise the debt ceiling would give Democrats no choice but to pass a balanced-budget amendment. McCain described that scenario as a fantasy, saying then the Tea Party hobbits could return to Middle-earth having defeated Mordor.
To our exalted Senators, we in flyover country are a bunch of hobbits who should stay in the shire.
Hey McCain (Rino, Loser) - “concern about negative tone” begins at home. Rein in your daughter first.
