[AUDIO] Harry Reid: John McCain controls about 10 people and thatís all I needed to get things done
http://therightscoop.com ^ | august 9, 2013

Posted on 08/10/2013 1:53:13 PM PDT by lowbridge

See I don’t need a lot of Republicans to help me. And that’s why I so admire John McCain. John McCain and I came to the House together 31 years ago. We came to the Senate together at the same time. He and I have fought over the years but we’re also very very good, good friends. And he broke away from the pack.

He said, in effect, we have to get some things done. So he doesn’t control the Republican caucus but he controls probably 10 people there. That’s all I needed.

And we were able to get a lot of things done. We nominated scores, we confirmed scores of nominees. And because of him we were able to get immigration reform done. We’ve been able to do some things.

But it’s because of John McCain breaking away from this ideological anarchy-driven Tea Party that has so much control over Republicans in Congress.

All those people who were trashing J. D. Hayworth and talking up McCain in 2010, where are you now?

As our nation goes down for the count, I'd like to point out what you folks managed to accomplish for the Left.

McCain should keep his stained blue dress, so he can confirm that he and Reed “collaborated” when Harry denies it later.

He’s a filthy, stinkin’ traitor. ARIZONA, RECALL THIS POS!

And that number’s about to go down to 8, because Taxby is retiring, and we’re retiring Linda Gayham by force.

It becomes increasingly clear that my assessment of scum like McCain as “Kapos” is 100% correct.

He’s busy kissing the ass of the SS guard.

I question this because, if they had the numbers, why do they need to keep talking about having the numbers? Why wouldn’t they hold the vote and get it over with?

True. They must be still working on it. I suspect that they're close, though.

John McCain and Harry Reid’s greatest future problem is the Tea Party, led by (hopefully) our next President ... Sarah Palin

The problem isn't the Tea Party. The real problem is that corrupt Congress has broken away from its constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers.

Screw his service! I’m tired of hearing about it. He’s trying to destroy the country he served. The NVA screwed the US by letting this POS walk.If you have a problem with that too bad. He’s a cancer on this country and how long he served doesn’t change that fact. I’m sick of people giving this clown any recognition for anything he did.

McCain's service was then, this is now.

He now has become the enemy of the Constitution he swore to uphold.

Dingy Harry is an evil, lying bastid. The anarchists are the progressives, not the TEA party. Occupy are the anarchists. The TEA party didn't print the name of legal gun owners, a liberal dishrag did. The 400+ filibusters are the result of his lawless majority.

...but he controls probably 10 people there.

In a representative democracy, no senator should control another. This is why we need to eliminate the committee system that creates these dictators.

US-Egypt alliance on verge of collapse

America’s intricate alliance with Egypt,woven over four decades,is standing on the verge of collapse over the failure of the Obama administration to comprehend the revolution that ousted the Muslim Brotherhood from power in Cairo.

In a cascade of mutual recriminations over the past three days,President Mansour and his prime minister,Hazem Biblawi,described two senior American senators,sent as emissaries of President Barak Obama,as “delusional” and “liars.”

The two senators arrived with demands to release all Muslim Brotherhood leaders being held under arrest and to integrate the party into the new revolutionary government. Otherwise,they warned,the Obama administration will cutoff all financial and military aid to Egypt.

"I agree, McCain doesn’t control anyone but the democrats do and only the numbers are in dispute".

BS, McCain controls Palin. She flew out here to ensure his re-election over a Tea Party candidate, J.D. Haywrorth. Palin blasts the GOPe for supporting amnesty but refuses to speak against McCain who is the main cheerleadier for amnesty in the Senate. Palin tweets and face books a good game but when the time comes to stand against amnesty she dare not speak against her "owner", John McCain. I'm trying not to sound bitter but every time I see a post sarcastically saying, " thanks Arizona", I wonder why Palin gets a pass. Not only did she give McCain a rousing endorsement to this day she refuses to question why McCain shares the exact same position as Obama, Reid and Pelosi on immigration.
