McCain To Fox News: No, The Shutdown Is The GOP's Fault
TPM ^

Posted on 10/11/2013 9:54:23 AM PDT by Arthurio

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) channeled his inner-maverick Friday during an appearance on Fox News Channel, repeatedly reminding the conservative network that the government shutdown was brought about by the quixotic effort to halt the Affordable Care Act.

When anchor Martha MacCallum asked him about the White House's handling of the suspension of death benefits to military families, McCain said that while the administration deserves blame it was a GOP-induced shutdown that caused the problem in the first place.

McCain is just a total POS. The son of a bitch should just join the Democrat party or get the hell out of Washington.

He is useless to the party.

Never happen. He should be actively marginalized in the GOP until he self-destructs.

Of course it the GOP’s fault!

They should take a couple of reams of new blank paper, all of them sign the last sheet and lay it at Royal Feet of Hussein The Master.

The only good think McCain ever did was to introduce us to Sarah Palin. He probably regrets that also. Can't believe I had to pull the lever that that old fool.

Notice today that Senator McCain is carrying the water for Obama by saying on FOX that “- - - defunding Obamacare is a fool’s mission.”

Perhaps MCCAINCARE might be a better name for this Communist Box Canyon Law currently called Obamacare?

McAinal McQueeg is totally irrelevant with conservative republicans. He is only important to the gay rats, who control our media. These dregs of humanity, spend their semi sober hours in Gay hot tubs, writing bs about their hero while trying to make Ted Cruz look bad. In spite of their trash posing as journalism, we now have the totally irrelevant McAinal McQueeg and a stronger Ted Cruz.

This back-stabbing fool has been obvious in his purposes for a very long time. And now with crime being so in, in DC, he is just speaking up like the rest of the radical leftists.

Perfect poster-child for the RINO element.

And of course - and as John McCain has certainly calculated - every corrupt MSM news organization will now cite “Republican” Senator who agrees it’s all the GOP’s fault.

I believe McCain has done this with intended malice.

Saw him this morning on that show. Still going on with his ‘Fools Errand’ remarks. I just turned him off. He is getting as irritating as Juan Williams and Colmes.

It isn’t that he is useless to the Party. A lot of them are useless.

It’s a problem that he is working against the party that is hurting us. He is working against Americans. It’s like a Daisy chain up there, Obama bends over and Harry Reid sticks his head in ,Pelosi sticks her head in Harry’s, then Hoyer sticks his head in Pelosi’s, then John McCain sticks his head in Hoyer’s, then it goes on with Graham, McConnell, Hatch , Chuck the schmuck on and on, until half the Congress is stuck together head to rectum like a train.

I don't think the Dems are gonna be Left enough for him.

He needs to find a party that's left of the Amerikan Communist Party.

Maybe even farther left than whatever party, or cult, that Janeane Garofalo and Bill Maher belong to.

Notice how the Democrats don’t have any mega-backstabbers like John McCain. They know how and when to keep their mouths shut. It is obvious to all that that this is Old Guard trying to keep the New Guard (Ted Cruz and others) from rising politically. Old guard is jealous of the fresh new ideas plus it disrupts their campaign fund raising efforts when conservative money is not going to various Republican campaign committees. Instead it is going direct to the Ted Cruz types or to the organizations that support them

I’ll bet McCains wife votes liberal and Democrat

Well John, when you entered Congress the national debt was less than 2 trillion dollars. It is now going past 17 trillion and you don’t see any reason to slow down now. Thank god there are people unlike yourself that think it’s time to change the trajectory. Mr McCain your ignorance knows no bounds.
