John McCain: “I don’t understand” Threats to Block Gun Bill Debate … Hmm, I Don’t Understand How this Fool is a Republican?
Is Senator John McCain a Republican?
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) stated on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ that he opposed the filibustering a debate over gun legislation, despite threats of such action by fellow Republican senators. McCain stated, “I don’t understand it. The purpose of the United States Senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand.” Probably more to the point is that McCain cannot stand that the GOP Senators that are looking to filibuster the anti-Second Amendment gun legislation is the young gun conservatives Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas. Or as McCain refers to them as ‘Wacko Birds’.
I don’t understand why the Republicans think I am a RINO
Honestly, I don’t understand how this guy is a Republican. I certainly never understood how this RINO was nominated to represent the GOP as president in 2008. Had it not been for Sarah Palin on the ticket as VP the beating would have been even worse.
Sen. John McCain said Sunday that he opposes the thought of filibustering a debate over gun legislation that will probably be brought to the Senate floor this week, despite threats of such action by fellow Republican senators.
“I don’t understand it. The purpose of the United States Senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand,” Arizona’s McCain said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
A trio of first-term GOP senators–Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas–stated in a letter last month that they will block any gun control legislation that they consider a threat to Second Amendment rights.

Really, you IDIOT! John McCain is on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of the US Constitution and the wrong side of the Republican party. In essence, one has to wonder why he even runs as a Republican these days? Is McCain not going to stand for the GOP principles of defending the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights? Let’s face it, McCain cannot stand that the party has passed him by and he no longer has any power. It is time for this fossil to hang it up. McCain actually thinks that background checks are going to prevent criminals and those that would inflict harm against others would prevent shootings? Is he that much of a moron? Since when do criminals follow the rules and the law? Back ground checks would not have prevented the Newtown, CT Sandy Hook Elementary School murders, nor other mass killings. All these Progressives are after is a gun registry database.
Several other Republican senators joined in, and in an expanded letter to be sent Monday to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, they wrote that they would oppose a bill that “would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.”
The additional names include Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Oklahoma; Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kansas; Sen. Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin; Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyoming; Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho; Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, Sen. Dan Coats, R-Indiana, and Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas.

Could it be that John McCain does not get it. Some issues are not open to debate. They are Constitutional rights. Case Closed!!
Progressives/Rhinos say all the right words while campaigning … all the right words to gain Conservative support at the polls. However … following an election … the deception is revealed when Progressives flip flop and side with the Socialists/Marxists on the issues. In other words … the reality is that currently there is only one party in the United States of America. IMO

Think about it.
Marco Rubio, 2009:
“I am strongly against amnesty. The most important thing we need to do is enforce our existing laws. We have existing immigration laws that are not being adequately enforced. Nothing will make it harder to enforce the existing laws, if you reward people who broke them. It demoralizes people who are going through the legal process, its a very clear signal of why go through the legal process, if you can accomplish the same thing if you go through the illegal process. And number two, if demoralizes the people enforcing the laws. I am not, and I will never support any effort to grant blanket legalization/amnesty to folks who have entered, stayed in this country illegally.”
Marco Rubio, 2013:
Sen. Marco Rubio’s immigration plan earned a measure of praise from the White House. And why not? It looks a lot like a White House plan from 2011.
McCain warns supporters, calls Obama decent man
October 10, 2008 06:17 PM
McCain was booed at a town-hall meeting here when he rebuked a man who said he was “scared to bring a child up” under an Obama presidency. “I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States,” McCain said to audible disapproval.
The man was one of nine who appealed to McCain to confront Obama more forcefully, several of them raising specific controversies dominating news, including Obama’s relationships with Bill Ayers and the group ACORN. McCain seized the microphone from the hands of a woman who called Obama “an Arab,” and scolded her. “He’s a decent family man that I happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues,” McCain said, to scant approval.
John McCain Slams Michele Bachmann’s ‘Unfounded’ Attacks On Huma Abedin, Muslim-Americans
Posted: 07/18/2012 12:57
WASHINGTON — Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) vigorously defended top State Department official Huma Abedin, who is Muslim-American, against allegations by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and other conservatives that she is part of a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate the U.S. government.
“These allegations about Huma and the report from which they are drawn are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant,” McCain said in a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday morning.

Questions about Huma Abedin
A State Department adviser has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
By Andrew C. McCarthy
I fully concur.
Watch international news. This is what happened in Cyprus. Their own Finance Minister sold them out.
The US crisis de jour is to deflect from the real BIG issues of the economy & Jobs. The “news” is a joke. If a mouth moves its a lie, usually a lie of omission.
For Petes sake stand back and watch – its a dog & pony show . After the show ALL, the politicians hold hands and go golfing …Together.
Fact – Obama intends to cut medicare benifits to the elderly. Fact Rubio intends to give Obamacare to the illegal 12 mil. Hows that work for ya.
No matter the EU rationale the EU financiers destroyed Cyprus in 10 days. It was a plan.
John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012 both refused to warn the electorate regarding the implications of Barack Obama’s 20 year relationship with Jeremiah Wright and the Marxist Black Liberation Theology.
Romney repudiates proposed Rev. Wright attack on Obama
May 17, 2012
Mitt Romney repudiated the proposal floated by a conservative super PAC to resurrect a line of attack on the president that would remind voters of his links to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright …
“I repudiate the effort by that PAC to promote an ad strategy of the nature they’ve described.” …
Sen. John McCain resisted using Wright as a cudgel against Obama in the 2008 presidential race despite calls from some advisers for him to do just that.
McCain calls Paul, Cruz, Amash ‘wacko birds’
March 8, 2013
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan over drone policy. In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as “wackos.”
Fast forward 16 days after his dog and pony show of strength … Senator Linsey Graham afforded John Brennan his vote for CIA director … John Brennan the Islamic appeaser. The survivors of the Benghazi attack remain allusive.

“I want to know who the survivors are and for the appropriate committees to interview them,” Graham said. “We know it was clear from the beginning it was a terrorist attack. I want to know what kind of help they asked for.”

Republicans accuse colleagues of ‘secretly’ drafting immigration bill, urge ‘transparency’
Published April 06, 2013
“We believe it is critical that the public and the entire Senate body be given adequate time to read and analyze the contents of any immigration bill put forth by the majority,” the senators wrote in the letter Thursday to the four Republican negotiators: Florida Sen. MARCO RUBIO, Arizona Sen. JOHN MCCAIN, Arizona Sen. JEFF FLAKE, AND South Carolina Sen. LINDSEY GRAHAM.
“Because the president has failed to lead on this matter, your group has secretly met for months and not consulted with members of the Committee about major changes to our nation’s immigration laws. The time for transparency has come,” they wrote.
The letter was signed by top committee Republican Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, Utah Sen. Mike Lee and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
