Video: Here is What Is Wrong With Your GOP Today – McCain Tells Rand Paul to “Calm Down”
Mental Recession ^ | 03/07/2013

Posted on 03/07/2013 10:09:54 AM PST by rustyweiss74

The entire conservative blogosphere was energized by Rand Paul’s defense of the Constitution, Due Process, and the American people yesterday, and McCain ridicules them as “impressionable libertarian kids”.

Lindsey Graham also chimed in, saying he was “disappointed” with those who joined Paul’s filibuster, and added he would vote to confirm Brennan … because of the filibuster.

Let me get this straight – You’re going to confirm a man as Director of the CIA because somebody had the balls to ask the President of the United States whether or not he feels he has the authority to execute an American citizen on American soil?

These two clowns are exactly what is wrong with today’s Republican party. When somebody in the party decides to grow a spine and stand up for the American people, McCain and Graham laugh it off as ridiculous.

What’s truly ridiculous is what these two – along with 10 of their colleagues – were doing yesterday as Paul fought to preserve the America that our Founding Fathers envisioned.

These people…

Lindsey Graham SC Bob Corker TN Kelly Ayotte NH John McCain AZ Richard Burr NC Saxby Chambliss GA Dan Coates IN Mike Johanns NE Pat Toomey PA Tom Coburn OK Ron Johnson WI John Hoeven ND

Were having dinner with President Obama.

Anyone in the party who still has a spine should publically denounce McCain and Graham.

I can’t believe that these reportedly intelligent people don’t realize that the complacency they preach is what got us Barack Obama. Wise up.

McLame and McAmnesty need to sit down and pipe down. It is political amoeba like these two who are the problem with the GOP.

It's the Country Club vs. the Country Class.

The former has principles and guts and wants to win no matter how tough the fight. The latter have no ideas, no balls and are only interested in negotiating the terms of their own surrender so they can play House N-word to their social betters.

Hard to figure Graham, but, in the end, McCain will always be in the grasp of the democrat party. It only tends to reinforce the notion that McCain in Hanoi did things that make him very easy to blackmail by democrats, to the extent that he has just become an extension of the party.

We have the people of Arizona to thank for McCain... you reap what you sow.

Now South Carolinians have a chance to make a statement by removing Lindsey Graham-cracker if they choose, or forever hold their peace.

Please don’t let this opportunity slip by.

Rand Paul should denounce the party. This is what it has become. See Boehnor, McCain, Marco “Amnesty” Rubio, Graham, Rove, Preibus...this list goes on and on.
