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.
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.
Oh Boy … Gang of Eight reach bipartisan deal on immigration reform.
The Gang of Eight, Sens. John McCain (AZ-R), Lindsey Graham (SC-R), Marco Rubio (FL-R) and Democrats Dick Durbin (IL-D), Chuck Schumer (NY-D), and Bob Menendez (NY-D), have reportedly reached a bipartisan outline of a deal that would overhaul immigration in the United States. One of the tenants of the immigration reform is to “create a tough but fair path to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants currently living in the United States that is contingent upon securing our borders and tracking whether legal immigrants have left the country when required.”
From the Politico:
A powerful group of senators from both parties has reached a deal on the outlines of a comprehensive immigration overhaul, a development that will drive an emotional debate on a hot-button issue unseen in Washington for more than half a decade.
The group unveiled the basics of its proposal at a Monday news conference on Capitol Hill, essentially laying down a marker on the issue one day before President Barack Obama heads to Las Vegas to unveil more details about his own immigration proposal.
According to a five-page document provided to POLITICO, the sweeping proposal — agreed to in principle by eight senators — would seek to overhaul the legal immigration system as well as create a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s roughly 11 million illegal immigrants. But establishing that pathway would depend on whether the U.S. first implements stricter border enforcement measures and new rules ensuring immigrants have left the country in compliance with their visas. Young people brought to the country as children illegally and seasonal agriculture industry workers would be given a faster path to citizenship.
So two RINO’s, a Cuban-American wannabe 2016 presidential candidate and three liberals have come together to pave the way for immigration reform. Who just got a queasy feeling in their stomach? Sorry, but immigration reforms begins at closing the border, PERIOD!!! Until this is done, there should be nothing and I mean nothing to pave the way for illegals to get US citizenship. The closing of the US border should be done for national security purposes, let alone keeping illegals out. We have seen these types of promises from the LEFT before under Ronald Reagan. He granted amnesty with the promise from the LEFT to later protect the borders and guess what, it never happened. I will believe this when I see it. If the GOP actually think they are going to receive the Hispanic vote for passing immigration reform they are sorely mistaken.
Benghazigate: GOP Senators Ayotte, McCain and Graham More Troubled After Their Meeting Ambassador Rice Than Before
Ayotte, McCain and Graham remain more disturbed and troubled …
US Senators Kelly Ayotte (NH-R), John McCain (AZ-R) and Lindsey Graham (SC-R) met with UN Ambassador Susan Rice on Capitol Hill to discuss her misleading statements that she to the American public as she went on five Sunday morning talk shows following the Banghazi, Libya attacks and blamed them on a video tape rather than terrorism. However, instead of getting answers to the many questions as to why Rice would have mislead the public days after the attack when it was known that the attacks were a result of terrorism, Senators Ayotte, McCain and Graham were more troubled and disturbed by the answers they received than they were prior to the meeting (VIDEO). Sen Graham stated, ”The bottom line is that I’m more disturbed than I was before … about how four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya.” Senator John McCain said on Fox that he would be “very hard-pressed” to support Ms. Rice for Sec. of State.
After meeting with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Tuesday, three GOP lawmakers said their concerns have only grown about misleading statements Rice made concerning the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead.
Rice’s meeting with Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte on Capitol Hill came as the White House signaled it may nominate Rice to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of State.
VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
“I’m more troubled today… It’s certainly clear from the beginning that we knew that those with ties to Al-Qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy. And, clearly the impression that was given, the information given to the American people was wrong and in fact Ambassador Rice said today that Absolutely it was wrong… They have not cleared this up with the American people to date.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham voices his disapproval after meeting with Ambassador Rice
I’m more disturbed now than I was before that the 16 September explanation of how four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya by Ambassador Rice. If anybody had been looking at the threats coming out of Benghazi, Libya, it [would] jump out at you this was [an] Al-Qaeda storm in the making. I’m very disappointed in our intelligence community, they failed in many ways, but with a little bit of inquiry and curiosity I think it would be pretty clear that to explain this episode as related to a video that created a mob that turned into a riot was far afield.”
As reported at the Politico, UN Ambassador Rice stressed in a Tuesday statement that she did not intend to mislead the public about the September 11th attacks on the Benghazi consulate. BULL!!! Sorry, but with the information that was at hand and the fact that were know, one can draw no conclusion but her intention was to misinform the American public. The interviews that Rice went on happened days after the attack, she would have known and it is unconscionable that she would not have reviewed the classified information herself rather than just parroting the Obama company talking points.
So this is how the Obama administration is going to deal with a lie about the Benghazi cover up … with another lie?
America, do you care that four Americans were murdered by terrorists, a presidency has attempted to cover up what occurred and no one has been held accountable?
John McCain Responds to Clyburn’s Racist Attacks: When You Can’t Win an Argument on the Merits, You Resort to Personal Attacks
You’ve come a long way baby … NOT!!! If you dare question some one who is black and a woman who mislead the American people, YOU ARE A RACIST!
This morning on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Sen. John McCain (AZ-R) responded to Rep. James Clyburn’s (SC-D) reprehensible and race-based attacks from earlier thus week when Clyburn accused Republicans of being racist because they dare question UN Ambassadors Susan Rice’s abilities. The questioning and criticism came after Rice went on five Sunday talk shows and misled the American public on the 9-11 Benghazi terrorist attacks.
John McCain stated, “I’ve noticed in this town, if they can’t win an argument on the merits then, of course, they resort to those kind of personal attacks.” The GOP best stand up for themselves and defend these ludicrous accusations that blacks, woman and/or both are some how above being questioned. However, for race-baiting Democrats, they are off limits. Hmm, I thought that woman and minorities wanted equal treatment as men, not preferential treatment?
Earlier in the week, the race-baiting Clyburn stated that the criticism of Ambassador Rice includes Racist “Code Words”. Wow, racist code words and I never got the secret decoder ring from the GOP, damn who knew? So some how it is racist and sexist to attack a black woman in office. Really, ”lazy” and ”incompetent” are racist code words? I have news for you dude, I think these might be the very words that Democrats describes GWB as. Hmm? They called him incompetent. Was it racist then? Was it also racist when Obama called himself lazy? Just asking.
US Rep. Clyburn:
“These are code words. We heard them during the campaign. During this recent campaign, we heard Sununu calling our President ‘lazy,’ ‘incompetent.’ These kinds of terms that those of us – especially those of us who were born and raised in the South – we’ve been hearing these little words and phrases all of our lives and we get insulted by them. Susan Rice is as competent as anybody that you will find…. It certainly caused a big problem with me. I don’t like those words. Say that she was wrong for doing it, but don’t call her incompetent. That is something totally different. A lot of very competent people sometimes make errors, and to say that she erroneously did it, I don’t have a problem with it. But to call her incompetent, a PHD Rhodes Scholar, being called incompetent by someone who can’t hold a candle to her intellectually. By someone who said, and Senator McCain called her incompetent as well. But he told us that Sarah Palin was a very competent person to be Vice President of the United States. That ought to tell you a little bit about his judgment.”
The Far Left remain classless.
A leftist fool who could not be respectful of others tried to interrupt US Senator John McCain and former POW during a Memorial Day ceremony in San Diego, CA. The heckler was escorted out to the chants of USA … USA.
John McCain’s response to the fool … “JERK!”
A note to Meghan McCain … these are the same people who hang on every world of the MSNBC types you like to hand with so much and act like you are actually a somebody and relevant. You are so quick to make comments about right-wing extremist, you might want to take a good look at those that attack your farther. You remember him, John McCain, the only reason why you have any sort of career.
Senator John McCain (AZ-R) Says on CBS’s Face the Nation … “These Winds of Change That are Blowing”, Putin and Hu be Warned
This morning on CBS’s Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer, Republican US Senator John McCain stated that the recent governmental overthrow in Egypt would likely spur similar movements throughout the world. McCain would then go to warned leaders like Hu and Putin in countries like China and Russia that they might be next. The winds of change are blowing.
Arizona Sen. John McCain predicted on Sunday that the recent governmental overthrow in Egypt would likely spur similar movements throughout the world, and warned foreign leaders in countries like China and Russia that they might be “a little less secure” of their power in light of recent events.
“I don’t think this is confined to the Middle East, just as we believe that human rights are universal,” said McCain, in an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“These winds of change that are blowing, I think I would be a little less cocky in the Kremlin with my KGB cronies today if I were [Russian Prime Minister] Vladimir Putin,” he warned.“I would be a little less secure in the seaside resort that [Chinese] President Hu and a few men who govern and decide the fate of 1.3 billion people.”
