I believe you have the gist of the quandary about McCain and other professing conservative politicians. I wonder how many of these types have had slush funds along with a host of other bought and paid for ‘citizens’ in banks like the Vatican Bank.

Maclame is not a man of principal, he's a self centered whore. He has been knee deep in Washington corruption for many years. He might have been shot down in Vietnam but that doesn't mean he isn't a scumbag.

The best that might be said is that McCain knows that there is nothing he can do or say to stop it.-(

Yep - McCain lives every day with one Giant Fear. The Fear that his POW record that he was instrumental in having sealed after his release would be made public (including the many tapes he made during his incarceration). When he visited Vietnam in 1993 he specifically instructed the Vietnamese government not to release any of their records of his stay. He is still referred to as “Songbird McCain” by the POW’s that were there with him. Not many of them left now, and many of the articles have been scrubbed from the net over the last decade. You can still find some very revealing articles on the subject via google, but not nearly as many as in years past. Not for me to judge of course, but many think he is the Go along to Get Senator in order to get through his life without having to face the nation if they were to be made aware of the truth. Must be a terrible way to live - never knowing when anonymous or some other group will leak those documents and video's.
This is just a IMHO post, so don't blast me for research that I have done on the web. Happy Sunday fellow Freepers :-)

Few, including the writer, appreciated the frantic Democratic activity to insure that McCain was Obama's opposition in 2008. The February 2008 law, S. 2678, sponsored by Obamaa and his campaign chair Clare McCaskill, the ‘‘Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act’’.; Even those who can't believe our laws say such a thing - the Senate are all lawyers and no moot bill would have been submitted - went along because of McCain's presumed service and, and perhaps more because of his power in the legislature.

There have been many attempts to amend Article II Section 1, at least twenty six, including two by John Conyers between 2003 and 2007 which would have made Obama eligible, but none have passed. This one didn't either, and needed to become an amendment to have legal weight. Democrats had been challenging McCain's eligibility for almost a decade, and, with Professor Gabriel Chin's thorough analysis, nailed the law. Six congressional hearings later McCain was never eligible. S.2678 failed to pass so McCasklill and Leahy, leaving Obama off the sponsorship header, submitted SR (Senate Resolution) 511 in April 2008. Resolutions are not actionable, so every Senator of course said they thought McCain, having been born to citizen parents, should be considered natural born. They said that the non-incorporation of The Canal Zone in 1936 was an accident. But that didn't change the law, which was changed in 1937. McCain provided cover for both Democrats and Republicans. No one intended to question McCain because that would have raised the all to obvious fact of Obama's having been born a British Subject. Obams's status was exactly that of Wong Kim Ark, born on our soil but to non-citizen parents, naturalized by the 14th amendment, a naturalized and not a natural born citizen. Our Constitution was simply ignored. Obama never claimed natural born citizenship - in fact said he was naturalized "a native-born citizen of the US" which is a citizen naturalized by the naturalization amendment, the 14th.

McCain is all wrapped up in a coup, perhaps because of, or perhaps symptomatic of his involvement in illegal activities for most of his career. The Keating Five was just one of many operations, and probably many we subjects have never heard of. We'll see if McCain is still around when Obama and has patrons, headed by Prince Alwaleed bin-Talal, who funded his education, and bribed Harvard to get him into Harvard Law, implement "The Final Solution." They helped to organize (See the many photos of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Arafat's uncle and Muslim Brotherhood stalwart with Goebbels) the death camps created by the Nazis, and invoke the same oaths to convert or kill inspired by the Quran. With Obama and McCain's generosity, they now control most of the nominally secular nations of the Middle East, Syria being one of the last holdouts.

We do not control our government, and certainly not our elections. As Stalin long ago explained, it is who counts the votes that determines elections. Our probable CIA director is likely a Muslim Convert. Our Army Secretary is an open enemy of Israel and eager to destroy what remains of our military. Our former Secretary of State's closest aide, Huma Abedin, worked for the Muslem Brotherhood, and her parents and brother were highly placed officials in the organization.

The SEIU counts most votes today, maintaining the machines, counting absentee ballots without public oversight. Obama/Soros' Project Vote, the "Secretary of State Project" funded by Soros, and total control of most metropolitan precinct management through the SEIU that reports the votes, and few know to whom. Our voting process is entirely opaque - by design. McCain is just a thoroughly compromised tool. His family, his children, will suffer along with those who don't know the depth and reality of the corruption, when those billions of hollow point bullets are put to use by the "army, as large and as well equipped as our military", that is being organized to suppress those who resist our formal conversion to a Sharia-influenced socialist nation.

Mainly because McCain has what we used to call "short man's disease" around these parts.

He compensates for his diminuitive stature with a combination of narcissism and egotism, and has figured out how to work the media to keep himself front and center.

McCain and Graham couldn’t wait to tell all the lib media how “improper” it was for Cruz to question Hagel. Made me so mad. These old men need to go. To heck with the “my good friend” brotherhood crap. YOu never see a Dem dissing another dem-NEVER.

Why on earth did John McCain just rescue Chuck Hagel’s nomination?

Why in the hell is McCain the "go to" guy in the GOP anyway?

His days of "the MAVERICK John McCain" ended with the 2008 election........We've never heard that moniker since........

Because McCain is a plant. Like all plants, it is required that sometimes he exhibit behavior that makes you think he actually is what he says he is, and isn’t a plant. This is calculated. But when the time comes for something important to take place, he is called upon to do what he is there to do - advance the agenda of the left.

RIGHT ON! This also is what 95% of the (R)s have & will continue to do.

Your point?

Same point made when McCain was the candidate. Conservatives should have stayed home in large numbers in the general election. In the primary, they should not support a candidate just because the candidate that truly represents conservative politics is viewed as not electable.

There will be no effect conservative movement until it lays down the gauntlet. That is withholding a vote for the likes of McCain.

So having a Socialist like Obama in the White House is preferable to a RINO?

I’m sorry, but I just don’t follow your logic...

No, because conservatives did not make a stand, we have Obama in the White House. The GOP put up an unelectable candidate because it did not feel it needed to take in conservatives.

Not only is McCain a shill for the libs, he relishes sticking conservatives in the back.
