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.
Palin owns a home in Maricopa Co, Why doesn’t she challenge this whacko bird?
McCain, sensing that his Surrender Monkey Caucus is going to suffer mightily in the 2014 elections, decides it is time to pretend to make up with the base and try to limit the damage.
As usually, he thinks the base is stupid enough to buy this ruse.
McCain wants to become a Republican again
100% confirmation that the Democrats are losing big time.
You go Cruz!
He swears he could see Putin’s bony ass all the way from Maricopa County.
For awhile? How about FOREVER? Retire already.
If McLame is worried about HIS Republican Party, we must be on the right track.
The Politician when put to the test,
And betrays those who asked for his best,
Will wander alone in the Halls,
Fore he’s told that it’s to late,
To late to apologize.
The quicksilver moment has gone,
The coward took over the man - - .
Alone he will wander the Halls,
Content that he has no balls.
McLame is (sorta) apologizing? What’s he worried about?
lol. Musta hurt.
John: Step 1-STFU, Step 2-have the intellectual honesty to change parties, Step 3-retire. Actually, go right to Step 3.
Too little too late Juan. If you are REALLY sorry ... do ALL of us a favor and retire
John McQaeda is SUPPLYING WEAPONS TO AL-QAEDA.
That is treason. He belongs in prison.
go to the ALAMO SOON. This is war now and we must now engage. As soon as they start killing us — we fight.
Sen. McCain, thank for your service but please GO AWAY and ST&U.
The USS McCain is in for repairs.
Remember, McCain shares DNA with his “Wacko” Daughter,Megan.
IRS isn’t suppressing the Tea Party as much as McCain counted on. Thus he’s concerned.
Hey McCain, reach across the aisle and play with Obamatollah’s little camel.
McQueeg isn’t sorry he said those things about the Tea Party.
He’s sorry he got called on it.
