Skip to comments.VOTERS EXPLODE ON JOHN MCCAIN AT PHOENIX TOWN HALL...
Posted on 09/05/2013 10:34:35 PM PDT by barmag25
A number of Sen. John McCains constituents are not happy with the Arizona Republicans support of President Barack Obamas plan to take military action against Syria. Voters made that much perfectly clear when they confronted him at a town hall in Phoenix on Thursday.
We didnt send you to make war for us. We sent you to stop the war, one man said to applause, CNN reports.
Another man told McCain Congress is ignoring its duty to represent voters.

I saw this coming. Does that make me physic?
While they were at it, they should have yelled at McCain for supporting amnesty.
Yes. Spell check error
If you voted for McCain in order to stop wars, then I hardly know what to say. That's like saying you voted Obama to eliminate the national debt. It does not even skirt the far margins of common sense.
McCain with Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi.
Note to AZ voter: It has nothing to do with ANY wars, just why do you keep sending this asshat to the Senate in the first place? He's a democrat-light and no friend to the good folks of AZ.
Agreed ... I did vote for the other guy. Flake has turned into his namesake as well.
I love that expression, “ It does not even skirt the far margins of common sense.” Consider it stolen.
No, merely non-delusional.
2014 and 2016 will be an interesting election year. MSM can no longer cover the Dems like they did in 2012. Members of each party are drained by the BS. For the voters in the GOP borrow and spend GOP followed by expensive nation building wars; now the Dems are facing the same problem with Obama and the DNC. Dems are finding out that healthcare is not free, Dems want war just like GOP, along with wiretapping and etc. In the end the GOP will have their pro Wall Street free trade and imperial America faction, while the Dems will retain the color folks, Jews and big gov types, but a large former Dem and GOP voting bloc will be floating party less. They will be Tea Party and blue collar Dems, predominantly white voting bloc if united can scare the hell out of the establishment. If most of them sit home, wonder how the election will turn out in 2014 and 2016.
I don’t want to generalize that all AZ voters are stupid to keep electing this jackhole to the Senate. This dude could be just one of those like us who are fed up and had the sanity of not voting for this clown.
I wonder are these the same people who keep sending this trainwreck back to the swamp?If so, OH WELLLLLL.
Maybe he thought it was a wpt poker tourney.
Can’t believe AZ voted for this traitor..should’ve left him in Nam.
All AZ voters didn’t vote for asshat. I never implied that at all. But this guy stated that “we sent you to....” And that’s what I was going by.
Call me naive, but how do a**holes like this keep getting re-elected?
Another question: Has this a**hat ever cast a single vote or proposed a single thing that anyone here supports?
Video Poker anyone?
As a former Arizona resident (25 years in various places around the state), I will note that the decline in AZ's political culture began with a massive influx of Californians, starting in the 1970's but exploding in the 1990's. As property values went through the roof on the west coast, many Californians sold their houses and moved to AZ to "trade-up." They brought their left-wing politics with them. When I go back to AZ to visit, I barely recognize the place any more.
Second, McCain originally ran for office as a Barry Goldwater Republican -- strong on national defense issues and (more or less) libertarian on social issues. He fell in love with Washington and the Beltway culture (especially media types) and "went native." He actually started to believe his own press. Gradual process that intensified over the years.
Thanks for the insights. Much appreciated.
There will be another chance to confront McCain:
McCain also is holding a town hall Friday in Prescott.
A**holes keep voting for him.
Amazing McCain was reelected over JD.
The Dem voters will go out and vote Dem anyway. A lot of conservatives are going to stay home in 2014 at this rate
Holy Smokes, this assclown was almost POTUS????
McCain is an enemy of the Republic.
We sent you
you shouldnt have sent him at all...
He’s all meek like a bunny in front of his constituents back home, humble even. Full of nice words like “thank you for your emotionally compelling point....but....”
Yeah, all nice and considerate. The minute he steps out of that meeting and onto a plane to DC, the angry vitriolic madness returns and he is again the hateful and insane Senator McCain. He could give a rat’s ass what his constituents want or don’t want. Just like Senator Barbara Boxer who is going against her constituents...why?
Because the need to prop up and protect (even just to ‘save face’) an affirmative action, half-breed Muslim who hates traditional America. They crave their power so much, they are willing to prostrate themselves before him under any circumstance.
Even at that, he'd be better than what we have.
About time. Bastard should be tarred and feathered.
Whole lot of very old stupids in Arizona who keep electing this old piece of crap
I haven’t lived in AZ for years but visit annually and keep up and even I knew that Flake was bad news.
If the Vets in his state knew he was behind the gutting of their Tricare benefits he’d not make the next election. So much for the man who said he was pro Military.
He is getting SENILE and should RETIRE LIKE TODAY! And then Gov Brewer can put a real conservative in his place.
May his days be long, but his days in office SHORT!
No friend of the Military either!
If it does then you may be in violation of the laws.....
Tea Party is the next thing to a Constitution Party, cause that is where this old gal would be registered. Instead I have to register gop, and I don’t like it. 2 moderate to RINO senators, thank God my Rep is a conservative.
You seem to be saying that people in AZ are too uninformed and too confused to govern themselves. Look at their list of officeholders over so many years now, and you are right.
Veterans are usually uninformed too. They went to war to fight Nazis in the 1940s and came out and voted for socialist-lite candidates for many years.
He ran a "scortched earth" campaign against J.D.
Daily robo-calls, daily campaign literature in mail, lies, distortions. Once he won the primary, not a peep out of him against his Democrat opponent.
He had millions of $$$ left over from his failed presidential campaign which J.D. did not have.
I haven't voted for him the last two election cycles. He did get my vote for President but only because of Palin.
That's entirely up to Reince Priebus and the Vichy Republicans, and who they'll support / try to supress in 2014, and who they'll nominate in 2016.
I have been saying for several years that he is gaga. More proof here. Also, he is apparently being staffed and advised by intellectual midgets.
We could be looking at a major political realignment soon as people have become sick of the Imperial Party (both Democrats and Republicans) that governs Washington and look for alternatives.
Romney? Yes. McCain? No.
