McCain exposed: Weekend reading to make you smarter

National Review columnist Andrew C. McCarthy writes Bachmann Is Not the Radical in the Room, in which he points out that John McCain, referred to by McCarthy as “Big Gummint” and “the very model of a progressive Rockefeller Republican” is once again helping Obama win.  He did his best to insure that Democrat victory in 2008 and is back at work for the 2012 event.

From the commentary: Contrary to McCain’s bluster, the position taken by Bachmann and her allies is not political posturing. It is a defensive stand to save us from Obama’s transformation — which is to say, from doom. It is a stand that says the government needs to figure out how to make do on $14.3 trillion. Only a short time ago, conservatives considered it extreme for government to need a $9 trillion credit line. Now, with the credit line at $14.3 trillion and rising, somehow Bachmann is the extremist, and we’re to see as the adults in the room the guys who say, “Let’s give Obama two or three trillion more, as long as we can pretend we’re not responsible for the catastrophe we all know is inevitable.

    RINO TRAITOR AMNESTY-JOHN mccain’s re-election by the clueless and mentally limited of Arizona in 2010 makes the casey anthony jury, by comparison, seem like Einstein-level geniuses.

    Just as the imbeciles of the casey jury will be haunted every second of every day by the travesty they created, I hope the same on those who voted for AMNESTY-JOHN in the primary – or worse.

      TPP you are a true American Hero to me. McNasty and his campaign finance reform was law for everybody but him. But worse was the fools who supported him over JD. The fools who voted for his “build the dang fence”. The idiots who supported Deakin the usurper convincing the newby Tea Partiers he was on their side. Fools all. Lets see who they support for Senate in 2012 we already know McCain is supporting Flake that should be enough for all of us to know and support a real Republican.

  2. Sally Forth says:

    John McCain is well known as a snake to Arizonans who pay attention. Unfortunately, the newcomers who don’t know any better, senior citizens who have swallowed his hero pr, and those just familiar with his name — continue to elect him. Andrew McCarthy is so right in his article. McCain couldn’t have given Obama a bigger helping hand in 2008 if he was Obama’s fairy godmother .

    Now the old snake is gearing up to reelect Obama in 2012. Michele Bachmann is a smart woman and her courage and economic expertise expose McCain as the disgrace he is. That’s why he bashes her incessantly.

    • Army Of One says:

      John McCain is certainly no hero, Sally. If anything, he has betrayed America by promoting Obama, his liberal cohorts (Kennedy, Feingold, Kerry, etc, and their joint ventures that undermine the fabric of the USA.

      In his family, military service was as expected as breathing. He got into the US Naval Academy because his father and grandfather were Admirals.He scrwed up and nearly flunked out, dragging the bottom of his class. He crashed jet fighters. And yes, he was captured and tortured in Vietnam, for which I am sorry. But being captured does not a hero make.

      John McCain was training in his AD-6 Skyraider on an overcast Texas morning in 1960 when he slammed into Corpus Christi Bay and sheared the skin off his plane’s wings.

      McCain recounted the accident decades later in his autobiography. “The engine quit while I was practicing landings,” he wrote. But an investigation board at the Naval Aviation Safety Center found no evidence of engine failure.

  3. Fed Up says:

    THIS IS DIRECTLY FROM “FACT CHECK” AT THE ANNENBERG PUBLIC POLICY CENTER (http://factcheck.org/2008/09/mccains-plane-crashes/):

    We have updated it to include additional details of the 1967 Forrestal disaster from official documents, which differ from McCain’s own, widely accepted recollection. We have also included McCain’s admission of “daredevil clowning” in an accident that did not result in loss of his plane.

    We have had numerous questions about this widely circulated claim. Some say McCain “lost” five planes, others that he “crashed” five planes. All offer this alleged “fact” as evidence that he was a bad pilot. All are incorrect.

    McCain did lose two Navy aircraft while piloting them. One crash was found to be be McCain’s fault, the other due to an engine failure of undetermined cause.. A third was destroyed on the deck of the carrier USS Forrestal when a missile fired accidentally from another plane hit either the plane next to McCain’s or, less likely, his own aircraft, triggering a disastrous fire that killed 134 sailors and nearly killed McCain. A fourth plane was lost when he was shot down over North Vietnam on a bombing mission over Hanoi.

    A fifth alleged “crash” turns out to be a misinterpretation of a flight accident that did not result in the loss of the aircraft. McCain admitted to causing that incident through “daredevil clowning” but returned safely.

    Bottom line here? He’s always been a liar, a clown and a phony. Why the surprise now?

    THEN….there’s THIS from my personal e-mail this very day!

    “Friend, Do you agree with how
    our nation is being run?!

    I need to hear from you today!
    I don’t have to tell you that America is headed in the wrong” direction. Nor do I have to remind you of our mind-blowing $14 trillion national debt or dismal unemployment numbers.

    But I can tell you that there is hope. The new fiscally conservative House majority has made great strides in putting America back on the right track—it’s President Obama and the Democrat-controlled Senate that is holding us back, preventing us from cutting spending and balancing the budget. But the good news is that by winning just 5 seats in 2012, Republicans can take back the Senate.

    But that number is contingent on making sure this seat stays Republican. That’s why I immediately announced my intentions to be the next U.S. Senator from Arizona when I learned Senator Kyl will retire in 2012. Senator Kyl has served our great state honorably for many years, and I cannot imagine simply handing this seat to the spend-happy liberals who take pride in mismanaging our country. And that’s why I’m reaching out to you today.

    Your input on important issues and decisions facing our nation will not only help me run a successful campaign, but will make me a more effective leader. That’s why I’m asking you to follow this link to be one of the first to take the Jeff Flake for Arizona Issue Survey today.

    During my years in the House I have earned the reputation of being a fiscal hawk and was named the “taxpayers’ best friend in Congress” by the National Taxpayers Union. If I am given the honor to bring my service to the U.S. Senate, you have my word that I will continue the fight against runaway government spending.

    But while the political dialogue across the nation is presently focused on the economy—and rightfully so—there are other important issues we face. In the coming years members of Congress are going to have to make important decisions on a wide variety of issue like border security, energy, and national security.

    I want to know where you stand on these issues. It should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and your input is very important to me. So will you please follow this link right now and take the Jeff Flake for Arizona Issues Survey?

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your opinions with me. I appreciate your continued involvement and feedback, and I look forward to seeing you out on the campaign trail.

    Sincerely,

    Jeff Flake
    Member of Congress

    How’d this person get my e-mail address?!?!?!?!?!?!? Making sure the seat stays Republican? That’s NOT spelled, “R.I.N.O.”, Mr. Flake. Go & hang out with your friends…Read the Republican Platform, sir!

    Apologies for the length…I just wanted you all to see th’ whole sick, sordid thing…

  5. JohnG says:

    Jeff, make me puke, Flake needs an opponent, we need to draft someone but then support them. Do not let McCain/Flakey/Kyl or any Dimocrat win another election. We also need a Morman with good credintials to start speaking to other Mormons on what a social liberal Flake is, how he tried shoving his ream Act, his amnesty and his cap n trade down out throats.

    Jeff Flake needs to change parties join the Lib(artarian) with their open borders.

    • State Committeeman says:

      We better “draft” someone damn quick, John! McFlake is amassing his millions while a new face will be behind the eight ball in that critical area.

      Are Conservative Republican leaders talking to anyone or are they too terrified of offending the party elites? We should be contacting to those with instant name recognition who have the ability to kick in some of their own seed money and generate a groundswell of support. There are such people in Arizona. They are well regarded Republicans with solid families and the ability to give McFlake a run for his money. But time is of the essence.

      If Flake goes unchallenged by a truly viable candidate, it will be a political blunder of mammoth proportions, the likes of which Arizonans with historic memory have never before witnessed. He will consider that he has a mandate to move forward with his agenda, often well-concealed from his east valley constituents.

      Jeff McFlake is a different person in Washington than he is in the LDS environs of his Congressional District. Mormons will unquestioningly vote for him. But there are a lot of others who will not. We need a choice not a pre-selected senator who will make conservatives long for the days of John McAmnesty — as difficult as that is to imagine. McFlake will be there for decades, while McAmnesty is getting long in the tooth.

    Ya’ know….it occurs to me that Mr. McCain had his moment in th’ sun…TWICE! The man abandoned his post as our Senatorial Representative TWICE! To me, the pisser about that is that the 2nd time, he literally GAVE THE WIN to a man who’s driving America to destruction in a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, (the fastest production car on th’ PLANET) & Mr. McCain KNEW his opponent was planning it!

    NOW he’s running his mouth about a VIABLE, QUALIFIED, CONSERVATIVE, & CAPABLE Candidate who’s conservatism will wash his plans for amnesty & maverickyness down the drain…as his guy, Mitt Romney, has a top level advisor touting the positives of obamacare:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/07/17/romney-adviser-backs-key-health-care-overhaul-provision/?test=latestnews
    Michelle Bachman currently isn’t my gal in this race. I’m honestly on th’ fence. BUT…If she were to get the GOP nod, she’d have my vote. If Romney gets the nod I’ll write in DAFFY DUCK!

    • Jason says:

      Doc: I usually agree with your comments, but have to take you to task on “writing in Daffy Duck” if Romney gets the nomination.

      I’m no fan of his either, but a vote for Daffy Duck is a vote to retain Obama. THAT we can afford less than Romney. But not to worry, Romney will not be the GOP nominee. I see a Perry- Bachmann ticket. Perry has downsides, too. None of them are perfect. But he’s not Obama!

      Obama is tasked with destroying us.

      • Doc says:

        Sorry to alarm you Jason! I was being a wise guy. I PROMISE I wouldn’t ever actually write in DAFFY DUCK.

        However, I think Daffy’s far more qualified than obowmao OR Romney.

        …just sayin’……

    I happened to be driving, switched on “Hannity” and heard John plugging the McConnell plan.

    “The sky was falling” while the election campaigning was going on, John went back to vote on the STIMULUS-THEFT”.

    “The sky was falling” AGAIN, once Barry was elected, STIMULUS-THEFT AGAIN.

    America is suffering from the “we have to print and spend”.

    Shut up John and Don’t vote for more theft.
