Skip to comments.McCain gets fed up with fellow Republican, says ‘lends some credence’ to idea of filibuster reform

Republican Sen. John McCain became so fed up with a Republican colleagues efforts to block the National Defense Authorization Act on Monday that he suggested in a floor speech that perhaps Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reids push to change the rules of the filibuster was not a bad idea.

Good thinking! He'd probably use your ID to register to vote, and then vote for Obama!
I am so freaking tired of lookng at mccain and graham you have no idea.
Ah, welcome back, Johnny! We knew the real you would come out sooner or later!
I am so sick of this lunatic McCain.
Why wont he just shut up?
Last Primary, 2010, he spent millions of leftover 2008 campaign cash to wipe out a good conservative challenger. McCain will die in that seat, nobody can challenge the “war hero” in AZ.
OK. If the house or senate capitulates a damn thing right now they can find me on John Galt Way. I am working towards it now.
I hate Arizona Republicans. McCain is worthless, but those idiots kept supporting him. He was worthless in 2004 and 2010, but they still supported him.
Once again, McAmnesty decided which like minded group he’ll support.
Term limits anyone?
“Then lets embrace it when WE HAVE THE SENATE.”
You’re DREAMING. We’re not capable of that, and McCain would NEVER permit, just like he sabotoged it in 2003 or so (gang of 14).
McCain will ONLY support the reform when the Democrats run the ship...and his lackeys are enough to prevent ANY reform when Republicans are in charge.
As it is, let Reid take the hit, then we simply continue HIS rules when we take charge...assuming, of course, we’re even capable of that.
Something must have happened to him in the “Hilton”.
I’ve been here on Galt Way a while and life is good. Catfish are jumpin’ the livin’ is easy, my GOOD bag is packed and ready to go ...
When hard work and veracity are penalized, and sloth and lies are rewarded, as they are now in this country: ‘Bene qui latuit, bene visit’.
And now he's ready to back their efforts to end it while the we are in the minority..... how did he ever get the nomination?
He used money EFFING CONSERVATIVES gave him to fend off Obama, then he virtually endorses The Won, runs a lackadaisical campaign, and THEN uses CONSERVATIVE money against a CONSERVATIVE in a race he ran like he really wanted to win. If there were any justice, he’d be on a pole in front of the FEC watching dogs eat his entrails. He only runs like he cares about the outcome when the opponent is a conservative. He spent something like $20 a vote to defeat Hayworth.
Democrat Senator McCain was one of the a-holes responsible that prevented the Bush tax cuts from being permanent. If I remember DeWine was the other one. Thanks a lot < sarc >
And add, DeWine wanted to keep the federal speed limits too.
Nah, then the "voice of the minority" will somehow be important again, so important they should be able to veto what the majority's trying to do, like it was the last time the (R)'s had the majority.
A man without honor and loyalty is worthless. McCain is less than worthless, he goes beyond lacking those qualities. He is a back stabbing scum.
You....are 100% correct. He used the money given to him to fight Obama to take down a conservative Primary opponent. I saw that coming before he endorsed Obama.
Do they let Dems vote in the Pubbie primary in McQueeg land?
I don’t see how anyone can ever forgive (or forget) such treachery. Not that anyone I know would have pissed on him if he was on fire to begin with.
