John McCain Censured by Arizona Republicans in Landslide Vote
Top Right News ^ | 01-11-2014 | TRN

censured

McCain subject of unprecedented embarrassment

The Maricopa County Republican Committee, the state’s largest Republican group, censured Senator John McCain for “long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats.”

This official censuring of McCain happened during the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee. Nearly 1,500 precinct committeemen (PCs) were in attendance.  The vote to censure McCain passed overwhelmingly — 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed.

After McCain held several closed door town halls on amnesty last year, state Republicans expressed their outrage with his stance on rewarding illegal aliens with citizenship.

McCain betrayed the state by proclaiming his intent to "Complete the Dang Fence" when running in his 2010 primary, then turning around and pushing through last year's "Gang of 8" Senate amnesty bill that would gut border security and hand tens of millions of illegals instant legalization.

McCain also opposed attempts to defund ObamaCare, pushed to arm Al Queda-backed "rebels" in Syria, and shamed his state when he was photographed with a Syrian terrorist who had kidnapped and tortured 11 civilians.

~~~After McCain held several closed door town halls on amnesty last year~~~

Choosing to die on the same political hill that Bush43 chose to die on (as another FReeper put it years ago).

In the midst of the worst American economy since the Great Depression, in the midst of the lowest employment numbers in 30 years.

You can’t fix stupid.

Especially if it’s a liberal or a RINO selling their soul to someone.

Yup. That dried-up old dog turd does *not* care about criticism (unless it comes from his buddies "across the aisle").

“long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats.”

Not an exaggeration. There was Campaign Finance Reform, aka McCain/Feingold, and he is the undisputed champion of Glowbull Warming legislation and that's the tip of the iceberg.

You know, that really wouldn't surprise me. McCain only ran as a Republican because Arizona is a "red" state.

Agreed. Let's hope they have not kidded themselves into thinking McCain will change his liberal ways after being censured. They must follow up with an aggressive campaign to rid the state of that turd by supporting a solid conservative.

McCain is unfit for political office.

I have always said that something is just not right with this man.

To put it bluntly, he gives me the creeps.

As a Zonie, I’ll say this. MANY of the local govts are total old boys clubs. That’s one issue. Another is the influx of moderates fleeing Cali. Then there’s illegals either voting or having the sympathy of their neighbors who don’t want their good friends and drinking buddy’s deported. And trust me, there are a LOT of people like that here.

Lastly all you need to do is search the old threads to see how JD was savaged. By Conservatives. Sure he had his issues. His TV commercials did him few favors. But the mentality displayed on those threads contributed to Johnny’s last win.

Unfortunately you will likely see it all repeated if McCain does in fact run again.

Mister McCain is actually not a RINO.

Kudos, btw, to whomever came up w the term.

A U.S. Senator (or Congressman) can neither be impeached nor recalled.

The Constitution makes no provision for removal of an elected federal official save death, resignation or electoral defeat. He can be expelled, though, by the body to which he was elected.

I remember it well. I also remember how many here defended his endorsement by one very popular ex-governor from Alaska. Anyone who even questioned that was savaged also.

This embarrassment to veterans could have and should have been turned out to pasture long ago. Conservatives helped keep in where he is.

We forget that except for Reagan and Goldwater, we have had no candidate for President since 1932 who was a conservative. And in economic matters Reagan was not as conservative as Goldwater.

I wonder what would happen if a state legislature were to pass a resolution voting no confidence in a sitting senator? I am thinking here of the symbolic effect.

What I remember was his energy he used AGAINST his conservative opponent and his roll over for socialism/obama. It was such a stark contrast - and he had no problem with it. He didn't care - he did what he did to save 'his seat'. He knew the WH wasn't for him - his money to run came from Soros. Juan is the liberals favorite useable 'pet'.
