Republican Senator John McCain ripped conservative Senator Ted Cruz tonight before the final senate vote to approve a budget plan. McCain was on with Greta Van Susteren.

Just think a few years back most men died around 47 years old.

I saw him on Fox. Turned the sound down and listened to Mark Levin instead. McCain is a bitter loser and he cannot hold a candle to Cruz.

Well, this is just more of the baptism of fire that Cruz is going to have to learn to endure if he actually runs for president. If it’s false, Cruz, then just tell the devil that he’s full of baloney, grin with the joy of the Lord, and fight with a will. I’m pullin’ for ya and so are millions of other Americans, and God too.

I really think part of this is that Cruz is a Freshman Senator. The Senate has always been an “old boys (and girls) club”. Seniority counts for much in the Senate, considerably more than the House - unwritten rules, traditions, and all that. I’d lay good odds that had it been Orin Hatch who’d drawn a line in the sand (ha! fat chance of that, right?) McCain would be far softer-spoken in his criticisms.

I’m not eliminating the RINO factor, of course. I’m just saying I think there’s an element of Cruz being seen as the outspoken pledge telling the most elite (and elitist) fraternity in history what they’re doing wrong.

But we were told if we didn’t vote for McLame, Obama would win. I’m confused.

What are our orders for the next RINO presidential candidate? When are we supposed to stop voting for RINO candidates?

Sad to see the thinly veiled glee from the likes of weak-kneed ‘pubs like Perino and Krauthammer at the way this is turning out - afterall they predicted that it would go this way, and now they can all but say I told you so - Krauthammer complains that Obama is trying to fracture the Republicans, but no one does a better job of fracturing that party than those who supposedly belong to it and support its goals, but can’t look at the long-term picture and defend what’s going on now to try to further those goals......

The GOP has officially become the “Washington Generals” to the Democratic Party’s “Harlem Globetrotters.” They pretend to be playing ‘real’ politics while the Dems run around cheating, juggling, showboating and making them look like imbeciles.

John McCain is the Washington Generals’ point guard.

A vote for McCain is a vote for a Liberal. I dont vote Liberal

Wonder how many of the SquishyCons would vote for Cruz if he ran independent? Because Fox News said not to?

I don't mean this to sound as harsh as it's going to...

A vote for McCain was a vote for a man who has no fear of God. It was a vote for a man who will not bow his knee to God.

We can all lament the events tonight - but what exactly do we expect when we vote out the fear of a Demon-rat getting in versus the fear of God? God will give us a righteous man if we turn to Him.

Is he?

So you would rather have a "Republican" that mocks God and becomes the enemy versus a Demon-rat that we know going in is the enemy?

Interesting...

“...if you voted for mcclame,...no complaining for you...”

Interesting premise.

I voted for GWBush...complained about several things.

I bought a house...didn’t like some things about it.

I chose a restaurant...had to complain about the service.

I bought a movie ticket once...and didn’t really like the movie all that much.

I listen to Mark Levin frequently...sometimes I disagree.

I became a Catholic...and yet I struggle with some issues.

I voted for McLame/Palin in 2008...even though I despise him.

Complain when necessary, praise when necessary. Its one
or the other, isn’t it?

Interesting premise.

Thank you.

I voted for GWBush...complained about several things.

I've been a registered Republican for decades, but did not vote for George W. Bush because I didn't see a God-fearing man. That became even more evident when he helped push through TARP. Remember, massive deficit spending in 2008 was during his watch...

I bought a house...didn’t like some things about it.

An object is not a person. It doesn't really matter if you didn't like something. Your debate path kind of falls apart here...

I chose a restaurant...had to complain about the service.

You're comparing service in a restaurant to who leads the "free" world? Okay...

I bought a movie ticket once...and didn’t really like the movie all that much.

Seriously? You might want to rethink your debate strategy and try again...

I listen to Mark Levin frequently...sometimes I disagree.

Mark Levin is a talk show host who is paid to create discussion and controversy. It builds ratings.

I became a Catholic...and yet I struggle with some issues.

God has those answers if you seek His face.

I voted for McLame/Palin in 2008...even though I despise him.

Now we're down to the real point. People voted for the lesser of two evils instead of fearing God. Does anyone really believe that God honors that? Scripture doesn't teach that to be the case.

Complain when necessary, praise when necessary. Its one or the other, isn’t it?

Not really. Instead we should correct when necessary and edify continually according to God's revealed Word in the Bible.

“I really think part of this is that Cruz is a Freshman Senator. . . “

Plus McCain is an egomaniac who loves being in the media spotlight, a position he has earned through his maverick persona, primarily being controversial in backstabbing other Republicans. Cruz is playing the role of a true maverick and receiving huge media attention. The media whore McCain cannot stand seeing another Republican get more attention than he does.

McCain’s biggest nightmare is no longer being invited to pontificate on the Sunday talk shows. Young Cruz is earning time on the shows, and that takes away time for McCain. McCain, like an aging a wrinkled actress who is rarely offered acting roles, is jealous of the new young talent. In his heart he knows his day in the spotlight will soon pass, whether or not he assumes room temperature.

Six days ago:

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 he's learned to "never get personal" in political disputes.

Today:

Ted Cruz engages in fool's errands & deception.

And I’m sickened by the fact that I voted for McCain in 2008.

That hasn't been true for many years. That had value when elected senators (at least most of them) were educated, were honorable, were true leaders and had a working familiarity with the truth, with morals and with ethics.

Most today are hoods, senile has-beens, or criminals in fancy suits.

We all lose with an agreement to cave and increase the debt limit. Why can’t the GOP stick together to principles like the Dems even though the Dems are always wrong?

McCain is NOT a leader and never was one. He should retire at the end of his term. There is no reason to speak against a colleague publicly, especially when you are wrong.

That’s a very good point. McCain has been trying to build his legacy as a “statesman” for at least a decade now. I can most definitely see him blowing a steam valve over some young face stealing “his” spotlight.
