Sen. John McCain said Thursday that hes worried about the Republican Partys future and the infighting that is dividing it, calling efforts by conservatives to unseat incumbent Republican lawmakers wrong.
The famously wry McCain, R-Ariz., said he regretted calling the Tea Party wing of the Republican Senate conference wacko birds during budget negotiations, saying hes learned to never get personal in political disputes
I do worry about the Republican Party, he said at the Hero Summit hosted by The Daily Beast. Its the first time I have ever seen Republican senators running ads, raising money that is being used to attack incumbent Republican senators.
Noting that Republican Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas recently drew a challenger from the Right, McCain asked, Where has Pat Roberts offended anybody?
Since when was a seat in Congress a lifetime appointment? Since when is inoffensiveness a reason to vote for somebody? Since when is John McCain in charge of who should and shouldnt run for public office?
But dont worry about the wacko birds thing, senator. When you said that, we all just considered the source. And then we shook our heads that we were ever forced by circumstances to vote for him.
Ya gotta ask yourself, “Who’s pushing the envelope?” Why do we have to listen to this guy all the time. I long to hear from someone new and refreshing.
Can still remember all the posters on this site in 2008 that berated me for refusing to support John McCain.
Give it up, McCain. You have no credibility.
Traitor: John Mc Cain
Slow learner. He's what, seventy-something?
It took him only 30 years to learn this.
RESIGN Juan McAmnesty.
FUJM and go back to Arizona to live off Cindy’s beer money.
