McCain, House GOP headed for clash on immigration reform
The Hill ^ | July 5, 2013 | Molly K. Hooper

Posted on 07/05/2013 9:31:34 AM PDT by opentalk

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is on a collision course with House conservatives over immigration reform.

…The five-term senator has stopped short of criticizing Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) vow to move immigration reform only if a majority of House GOP lawmakers are on board. Yet, McCain made a pointed comment last weekend that suggested he would only bite his tongue for so long.

“I really don’t feel it's appropriate for me to tell [Boehner] exactly how he should handle this. But I think Republicans realize the implications for the future of the Republican Party in America if we don't get this issue behind us,” McCain said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who strongly opposes the Senate bill, took issue with McCain’s warning, but said he expects the 2008 GOP presidential nominee to continue challenging conservatives on the airwaves.

“Most of what [McCain] will do, in my anticipation is through the media. … He likes to drop a little bomb and watch how people will react, and he’ll do it again,” King said in an interview with The Hill.

King said McCain “should have learned his lesson” when he tried to pass immigration reform with the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)

I wish to God we could repeal the 17th Amendment.

A tool like Juan could never become a Senator fair and square.

The Senator needs to be dropped over Syria so he can participate in the next war he wants to get the US involved in. If he wants to mess over the US, that is so much quicker and obvious.

Yeah McCain, you dumb sh*t...we understand the implications perfectly! If this Amnesty plan becomes law, the Democrats will be the permanent majority

This guy is a POS media whore! And I could give a rats A$$ about this traitors military service. I no longer feel the compulsion to preface every negative comment about this guy with the standard: “I applaud his military service...blah, blah, blah...”

This POS authored a bill to take away other Americans rights to free speech. Fu*k his military service!

A man in his position shouldn't have to guess and think he understands about important things.

He should KNOW about important things.

When John McCain refers to Republicans, he refers to his kind of Republican.

Most Republicans IMO are not John McCain style Republicans.

RINO’s Republicans who feel it is necessary suck up to a Kenyan President and Kowtow to illegal Hispanic Criminals who do not belong in this country in order to get elected.

John McCain is a traitor IMO, I don’t know where he got turned, but he has, I began to suspect him when he and John Kerry went to Viet Nam to find POW’s and MIA’s and came home with a trade dead and nothing else.

From the article...

“McCain knows the legislative process, and he knows that the game is trying to get to [a House-Senate] conference, and the House has to find its own way to get to conference,” said Feehery, a columnist for The Hill.

If McCain is so keen on setting the House’s agenda, he ought to try and become a member.

His military service record is not so pristine as we are lead to belive.
He destroyed a couple of Million $$ airplanes due to poor judgment, and if wasn't a Admiral's kid would have been booted out.
Couple that with some fellow POW’s statements that he collaborated with their captors, and you have a good understanding of who exactly who Johnny is.
Mr McCain stellar back round has greatly been exaggerated by the press.

McCain may be confused; he may actually be getting senile. Or, as a third alternative, he may actually have bought into the apologetic Americanism, which holds that we have a duty--however large our present population--to take as much of the world into our lands, as want to come.

What he is not, today, is a rational statesman, or a spokesman for grassroots Republicans.

Most of us, agree, that passing this ridiculous bill is the threat to our future; certainly not its rejection.

I don’t like the Democrats, but I know what they are going to do.

With So called Republicans we never know what they are going to do.

They are as likely to turn on us as they are to awaken in the morning.

We cannot trust our party.

If he gets tired, I’m sure some of us could bite his tongue for him for a while.

Throw him out of the House, if he shows up to make trouble there. He and his boyfriend, Linseed, have screwed up the Senate and now they want to mess with the real conservatives in the House.

McCain is getting a case of senile vapors, and someone will have to wipe the drivel off his cheek when the tantrum is over. Perhaps his closest friends can make him an honorary Democrat, since he no longer possesses the mental acuity of a retarded RINO.

John McCain married his money. It's money derived from cheap labor and lots of beer sales. Gotta' keep both flowing so wifey has lots of money for him.

Then there's the war POW thing. It's like something during that time warped his mind and he thinks that more war somehow is a good thing.

I really, really wish he would just LEAVE the US Senate.

It is very difficult to think of anything nice to say about anyone who would work with Chuck Schumer in determining who should be eligible for U.S. citizenship.

Who can ever forget Schumer's defense of Janet Reno's unleashing masked thugs to kill civilians in Waco; not to mention his support of every Leftist foray since.

If McLame wants to tell the House what to do, perhaps he should give up his Senate seat and run for the House.

Otherwise, STFU.
