John McCain Apologizes to Senators Rand Paul & Ted Cruz for ‘wacko birds’ Comment


Mavericky Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) apologized for his  ‘wacko birds’ comment that he made toward Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for their outspoken brand of politicking on the Hill. The long time Arizona senator and failed GOP Presidential candidate took exception to the fact that he has been passed by the young Turks. What McCain might finally be realizing is that Paul and Cruz represent a breath of fresh air for the GOP Senate and what the GOP base wants to embrace, not Democrat light. During CPAC 2013, Rand Paul took the opportunity to slap back at McCain and said “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.” Whether McCain’s apology was sincere, who knows. However, one thing is for certain … the balance of power is being to shift in the GOP Senate and is moving away from the failed establishment senators and more toward the new brand of  Republican Senators like Rand Paul (KY), Ted Cruz (TX), Marco Rubio (FL), Jeff Flake (AZ) and Pat Tommey (PA).

Sen. John McCain is apologizing for calling Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz “wacko birds” and says he respects what his Senate colleagues stand for.

“[In] an interview I said that Sen. Cruz and Sen. Paul were ‘wacko birds.’ That was inappropriate and I apologize to them for saying that, and I respect them both. I respect what they stand for and what they believe in. They both made an impact out here in the United States Senate,” McCain (R-Ariz.) said on Fox News on Friday.

McCain at some point best realize that his days are behind him and that he is on the wrong side of the future of the Republican party. Of he wants to make such criticisms he might as well pull an Arlen Specter  or Charlie Crist and switch parties.

      Maybe John McCain took a look in the mirror. He has fit that description from time to time.

      He should have retired before his last Senatorial election and let a younger more astute person run for the office.

      Mccain is just one of the weak links in the Republican party. they better get their stuff together and stop the playground infighting and get down to business. they will never win another election acting like small children fussing with each other. the democrats are laughing at the republicans and know they are running behind.
      we need a new party to put the commie democrats on their asses never to rise again !!!!!!!
