Why on earth did John McCain just rescue Chuck Hagels nomination? Why did he go on Meet the Press this morning to say that Chuck Hagel was going to get confirmed as Secretary of Defense? McCain argued that Hagel had the votes to be confirmed and that he didnt want the process to be delayed further. But if that is the case then why did Bob Woodward go on Fox News yesterday to say that Democratic Senators were calling the White House to ask when Hagel was withdrawing? Now I doubt Woodward would have dropped that tidbit if there wasnt sufficient discord

Because McCain serves the same masters as Obama. I not making this up. If have seen this yet, you are blind.
Never ascribe to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
And people wondered why FR started the “Just say no to RINOs/No More RINOs” campaign.
Then they mocked it.
Some of these same people then shrieked in rage later when the RINOs sold us out.
It’s patently obvious to the rest of us.
And probably someone has dirt on him.
McCain is a country clubber that a bunch of FReepers supported on here when he ran
You just saw a puppet show with the ending already known with Obama getting his way. The show was just to make you think there was a fight. There is no fight. Congress is in the hands just a empty shell of corrupt men and women.
Tea party take notice and challenge that idiot GRAHAM.
You didn't really think Obama’s best friend would vote against an Obama nominee, did you?
If the voters in AZ are not seriously considering a recall, then the AZ Republicans can all be classified as RINOs and not to be confused with their greatest Republican, Barry Goldwater. Just my opinion.
McCain lives for these moments of personal power. He engineers the surrounding circumstances in his life for these moments. It’s not about right or wrong with McCain, it’s about these moments.
And, if it hurts conservatives, all the better because he (being a “conservative”) has made a grand personal sacrifice for the good of all. Ick.
Thanks Arizona - for returning this twisted little sack of betrayal and corruption to office again and again.
McCain already betrayed the POW-MIA’s and sucked up to North Vietnam many years ago. Nothing new about that, I’m afraid.
He is a McCain in the butt.
This is more about being a member of the Club. McCain feels himself a senior member of the Club and that members in good standing are deserving of the Club’s consent. Of course McCain doen’t care that this NEVER works in favor of a Republican. He feels that this identifies him as a truly bi partisan figure who rises way above the hacks. In his own way McCain is every bit as narcissistic as Barky.
Don’t EVER, EVER become deluded about the identity of John McCain.
He is an EVIL, LYING, DUPLICITOUS SNAKE. When I FIRST saw him go after Chuckie Crybaby Hagel, I was amazed. Amazed, but not deceived.
Like SO MANY people in the Republican Elite, McCain lacks the courage of conservative convictions. Just look at the witch he raised.
Unfortunate but not surprising.
And ONCE AGAIN, the enemy is NOT John McCain, as it is not Barrack Hussein Obama. Its the idiot moron voters who keep electing and re=electing this scum.
By the way, just watch McCain’s little pansy puppet tow the McCain line shortly. No more attack dog Gomer Pyle role for Lindsey Graham.
He will fold like a cheap deck of cards.
Unless conservatives can take over the GOP and eject dirtballs like this, AND Boehner AND McConnell, its all over for the Republican Party, America, the West and western civilization.
Buy your burnoose now while they are cheap.
...to show Cruz who's boss.
McCain supported the group which received
the MANPAD transfer from the beginning.
This “opposition” was for show.
Two words: Senile dementia
