Accelerated efforts to undermine Republican policies indicator of McCain’s last term?
Bloomberg News provides yet another repugnant glimpse at Arizona’s senior senator in this 2-page report, McCain Ditches Combative Role to Become Obama Ally in Senate. We linked to Politico’s article New power triangle on Wednesday which also exposed McCain’s alliances with Barack Obama.
These ongoing reports of this known colluder might be tedious but for the continual and flagrant shiv in the back John McCain thrusts at Republicans as he persistently cuts deals with liberals. He now revels in his fraternal role as Barack Obama’s strong Capitol Hill ally.
Over the years, McCain has attempted to configure his aisle crossing as maverickism. During his failed presidential campaign he called his tour bus the “Straight Talk Express,” much to the incredulity of Arizona conservatives, who know he is incapable to such an accomplishment.
He wins acclaim from the most liberal of Democrats such as Harry Reid and Elizabeth Warren, and is esteemed for ditching his Republican colleagues as he coalesces with those who disdain our principles and policies. McCain meets regularly with Barack Obama and his top advisors and has even expressed concern over helping the second term president in the legacy department. According to McCain, “The president of the United States, like all presidents in their second terms, looks at their legacy. And there are areas that we have worked on.”
This collaboration meets with senate underling Jeff Flake‘s approval. “He’s doing some of the same things he’s done all along — trying to protect the institution,” said Flake. “I’ve seen more consistency than anything else.”
What a surprise!
Like his mentor John McCain, Jeff Flake has become the darling of the “bi-partisan” crowd.
Astute politicos know that the accurate definition of bi-partisanship is Republicans setting aside principles to join forces with Democrats in promoting their agenda. This post comes complete with irrefutable links under the ‘Update” tag exposing Flake, along with a fine photo. Check them out.
