    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday that he is considering running for another term in 2016, when he would be 80 years old. "I'm seriously thinking about maybe giving another opportunity for you to vote for or against me in a few years from now," McCain said on KFYI-AM in Phoenix. "I'm seriously giving that a lot of thought."

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) — one of President Obama's most strident critics — praised the president's speech in Arizona at a memorial service for the victims of the Tucson shooting spree. The Arizona senator and Obama's 2008 opponent penned an op-ed in the Washington Post, saying Obama "comforted and inspired the country" by calling for greater civility in the nation's political discourse. "I disagree with many of the president's policies, but I believe he is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country's cause," McCain wrote. "I reject accusations that his policies and beliefs make...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Sunday that elections planned for September were a key to maintaining stability in Egypt. McCain, a conservative and ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said a plan to ensure fair elections in the fall needed to be laid out promptly and stuck to in order to ensure the Egyptian people their grievances were being addressed. "There is also a good chance for a real functioning democracy and arguably the most important nation in the middle East," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union."
  • McCain slams GOP's 'false premise' of repealing Obamacare

    Infuriated over the delay of death benefits to fallen American soldiers due to the government shutdown, Sen. John McCain railed against the “false premise” that some Republicans have proliferated: that it is possible to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “To somehow think that we were going to repeal Obamacare, which would have required 67 Republican votes [in the Senate] was a false premise, and I think we did the American people a great disservice by convincing them somehow we could,” McCain said. "We started out with a false premise on this side of the aisle." In the Senate, 67 Republican...

    Sen. John McCain's daughter says the tea party revolution within the Republican Party has left him in a state of emotional distress. "I’ve never heard him this depressed other than maybe after the ‘08 election," Meghan McCain said. "He’s so depressed, so down-trodden. The way he’s talking about it, he's never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office." Meghan, who describes herself as a liberal Republican, said she shares his sense of despondency. "We’re both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses,” said McCain, 29, who...

    Meghan McCain says her Arizona senator dad is “depressed” and “frustrated” with the tea party faction of the Republican Party, which she called “the hyper-conservative wing.” The comments were part of Meghan’s promo for her new show, which no one will watch, Raising McCain. As a Tea Party activist, I am all for making both McCains even more frustrated. One of the most important developments in the new conservative movement has been encouraging regular Americans to participate directly in politics. In California, that has meant many have gotten involved in local Republican groups and have become versed in the ways...

    Sometimes, there just are no words. Unfortunately, John McCain supplied them anyway. In an interview with Bloomberg out today, Senator McCain offered high praise to the Secretary of State whose philosophy on accountability for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi was, “What difference at this point does it make?” “Being a loser, I’m not sure what I have to say would be very impactful,” McCain told reporters, alluding to his 2008 loss to President Barack Obama. Then, the Arizona Republican offered plenty of praise for Clinton, who is also making an appearance in Chicago today. “I don’t think there’s...
  • I’ll See Your Karl Rove and Raise You a Dick Durbin: The GOP Fights Back - (Yes-s-s!!)

    A funny thing happened on the way to the nation’s highest forum last week. After Harry Reid attempted to use the well of the U.S. Senate to advance his party’s frivolous attempt at ousting Karl Rove for outting Joe Wilson’s wife, GOP leaders actually fought back. After four years of quietly beating the minority to a pulp behind the scenes and at the ballot box, Bill Frist and company exhibited a rare public display of political payback. Amid the undulating and ever-changing accusations of Republican skullduggery, the liberal left--ever reliant on its faithful media wing--has finally turned its attention away...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Private conversations with George Bush secretly taped by an old friend before he was elected president foreshadow some of his political strategies and appear to reveal that he acknowledged using marijuana, The New York Times reported Saturday. The conversations were recorded by Doug Wead, a former aide to George W. Bush's father, beginning in 1998, when Bush was weighing a presidential bid, until just before the Republican National Convention in 2000, the Times said in a story posted on its Web site. The tapes show Bush crafting a strategy for navigating the tricky political waters between...

    The country of Sierra Leone has declared war on the country they believe to be harboring weapons of mass destruction. The tiny country that boasts the world's worst GDP, has found extensive evidence to support the facts that the United States has weapons of mass destruction. They are calling on the UN to launch an immediate attack on such strategic locales as Newark, New Jersey, Troy, Michigan and Austin, Texas.

    What I do not understand is why you all need to "freep" Disney in order to try and stop Moore's video about the connection between Bush and bin Laden. If the video and Moore are such a joke and full of lies like you say, then why are you all so nervous about its release? And what difference does it make if it is to be released just prior to the election if Bush and his cronies have nothing to hide? My only complaint about Moore's video is that it is not covering the right topic. It should be a...
