When I asked John McCain what he would say to his old friend Ted Kennedy this morning, he smiled and said "Congratulations."
But he had nothing good to say about the legislation that passed the House late last night.
Calling it "a massive government takeover of the health care system," he promised the GOP would fight it on all fronts: challenging the reconciliation "fix" bill in the Senate, moving more broadly to repeal the bill later this year, questioning its Constitutionality in the courts and, of course, hoping to reap electoral gains come November.
McRino is going to help pass Immigration “Reform” and Cap and Tax...
you’re right. that’s what gets the republicans in trouble, the “fear factor”, which msm is happy to play along.
Potomac Fever is contagious, it seems.
....and congratulations for drowning a woman and running from the scene of the crime.
No, what happened to him happens to most of them, especially when they’ve been there for donkey’s years and think they “own” their seat-they become part of the “club” and see their loyalty to the club as a priority over the very reason they supposedly went there in the first place-to serve their constituents.
This is sickening.
Well loyalty to idiocy is not what I consider honorable or brilliant. I liked her when she showed the semblance of “going rogue”... but by supporting the old petting zoo pony (not Maverick) she is showing she is NOT going rogue, not really, she has allowed herself to be politicized and it has damaged her in my mind. GO JD, you da MAN.
He MUST go-
and in the meantime, I wish he would just SHUT UP and crawl under a rock...
No, it does not.
Palin has no excuse for endorsing, supporting, and campaigning for McCain when McCain's opponent is the conservative in the race.
Perhaps more Republicans and conservatives should take a good, hard look at Mike Pence. Though he may not be interested in seeking the '12 GOP nomination.
i am so disgusted, i havent been able to sleep all night.
I had to take a sleeping pill to fall asleep. It was bad.
Millions of Americans were hopeful, yet suspicious of Obama. he wasn’t passing the smell test. They wanted to vote for him but their instincts told them something wasn’t right. YOU gave millions of Americans sitting on the fence permission to vote for Obama when you told them they have nothing to fear in an Obama Presidency.
Nothing to fear!?! How stupid could you have been!?!
I’m tired of saluting you for your sacrifice. I hate you. Go to hell!
I think that I need a “nerve tonic”.
Ted didn’t seem to particularly concerned about Mary Jo’s health care.
What on earth is wrong with McCain?!
Unlike McCain, some of us do not care to suck up to our political enemies who demonize us at every turn, and totally ignore us. We are aware and sophisticated enough to realize that the clucks at dailyKos, MoveOn, and the DU are not in any way, shape, or form our friends, and we view them accordingly.
Yes, that and more.
I wish McCain was our president.
Thought you’d be interested to know what McShame would say to Kennedy if he were alive. I hope JD uses it in his upcoming ad.
Why? So he could engage in "bipartisan compromise" with the Democrats all day long?
Nor are Dems for Obamacare particulary concerned about our health care.
McPain is also for amnesty
I agree with McCain! Repeal that bill!!
I agree with McCain! Repeal that bill!!
In the meantime, support the AG’s in having Barry’s bill ruled unconstitutional.
A reasonable conclusion if you don't realize McCain - like his mini-me Graham - are double dealing. Graham was once caught leaving a secret meeting with Democrats and is quoted as responding "Republican by day. Democrat by night."
McCain shows plenty of fight when it comes to McCain-Feingold. He even continued to defend and advocate it even after SCOTUS found it unconstitutional. He did not congradulate oponnent of McCain-Feingold
Ditto for Amnesty. In fact in the middle of the fight against this Obamacare travesty, McCain's mini-me was working out a deal with Schumer for an Obama Amnesty. And if McCain was running for reelection he'd be fighting that Amnesty fight with plenty of "fire in the belly" - all in memory of his old pal Teddy.
We are their “Mary Jo”
if McCain was running for reelection = if McCain was NOT running for reelection
Because he wouldn't be signing tomorrow the abomination that was just passed last night.
Agreed. Palin needs to get OFF that train pronto, if she wants to salvage any conservative cred she may have left!
And, Juan soothed us during the 08 campaign with assurances that Obama “wasn’t a socialist”, “was a patriot”, and we “didn’t need to be frightened about a President Obama”! And, according to Juan, Obama didn’t even have a middle name!!!
we have nuthin to fear of a kenyan islamocommie...
Its nice to see John McCain campaigning for JD
Once again, John McCain burnishes his credentials as the Democrats’ (ABC’s) favorite Republican.
What McCain refuses to recognize is that - for the libs, this is a WAR! For McCain and his ilk, it’s a parlor game - “you win some, you lose some.... now, let’s go have a drink..”. The other side takes no prisoners, wants no collegiality, defines “bipartisanship” as accepting their will. We won’t take back this country until we understand the level at which this is being played.
His service record was not too stellar. Ask anyone who was on the USS Zippo.
I think that almost all of them don’t care. They are “wealthy enough”, have Congressional benefits and this won’t effect them. They can move to another country after they ruin this one.
What makes you so sure?
I believe he would have gone bipartisan and bent over to help the Democrats craft the bill.
Hey McCain, The Swimmer’s grave is right by ya in DC, who don’t you go “reach out” to him as usual?
Let’s get down to it. Democrats are the ENEMY of this republic. You don’t respect or congratulate your enemy. You expose them to ridicule, opprobrium and derision.
McCain, Graham, et. al., still don’t see the enemy. They see debate teams. Everyone has drinks together after work.
I don’t think that way. These people are my mortal enemy and are destroying my kids’ future.
Obama is a communist, McCain, and we have MUCH to fear from him. McCain is without any principled game plan to defeat the enemy.
There are few words sufficient to express the loathing I have for the character of John McCain, save to state it is unfortunate that when he made it out of the Hanoi Hilton he left his mind there.
mccain on kfyi at 7:30 (15 minutes)
Good luck with that. "Pragmatic" politicians like her are the reason why this country has economic and liberty deficits. McCain is a liberal false flag operation personified, and if Palin's loyalties to it are stronger than her political philosophy (or brainpower), she's not part of the solution. She's in my rear view mirror.
