John McCain suffers major memory lapse

John McCain has previously been the object of scorn and in larger numbers

In a collection of recent tweets from the past week, the daily newspaper has this gem from Arizona’s senior senator:

“First I was sanctioned by Vladimir Putin, then #ISIS labeled me “the enemy,” now Fidel Castro! Who’s next?!”

In an obvious memory lapse, McCain appears to have forgotten a “sanction” or two that preceded them all. Right here in Arizona, a state he visits infrequently, McCain was more than sanctioned. He was repeatedly censured by elected members of the party he claims to represent.

This past January elected GOP state committeemen representing Republican voters throughout Arizona assembled at their annual Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party and voted overwhelming to censure McCain.

That vote came on the heels of a similar vote of censure by the Maricopa County Republican elected precinct committeemen. In a stern rebuke of his increasingly liberal positions and abandoning the Republican platform to join with Democrats on significant issues, the vote to censure McCain passed overwhelmingly — 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed. The ‘Resolution to Censure Sen. John McCain’ can be read here.

Other counties statewide joined Maricopa in expressing deep dissatisfaction with McCain. Apache, Cochise, Gila, Mohave and Santa Cruz counties all passed Censure Resolutions.

When it comes to dissatisfaction with McCain, no one knows him better than those he has repeatedly deceived for the past three+ decades. Arizonan Republicans were first in line imposing sanctions on John McCain by way of repeated censures.

Since the word ‘sanction’ has two distinct —– and opposite meanings —- the often confused McCain could mean he has the explicit or official approval of Putin, ISIS and Castro, rather than their attempts to limit him. Merriam-Webster Dictionary’s description of the word ‘sanction’ can be read here.

    So last year Juan MexCain visited his new “friends,” AKA moderate pro-democracy rebels who turned into err…ISIS, now he’s saying any attempt to link them to him is a “fabrication.” Make up your mind John!!! Which is it? Didn’t you help fund and empower ISIS to fight Assad and now you want to defeat them after you didn’t like what they morphed into? What did Senator McSenile expect???

    So now the guy who admitted he doesn’t know how to use a computer and is unable to send email, has a twitter account? It’s a sure bet his staffers, wanting the old duffer to appears relevant, keep the tweets going.
    Karl Rove even went to the mat for McCain, saying he can’t use a keyboard due to injuries he suffered in Vietnam. Nice try, Karl. No cigar. It’s actually because McCain’s a dunce!

      thanks for mentioning staffers its a HUGE problem. when politicians get replaced the staffers generally stay, so the policies and procedures just continue since they are the ones who know how to do things and have the corp knowledge. the staffers need to be tossed for fresh conservative staff when the office holders change.

    yet when Robert graham totes McCain around to places hes been censured, nobody tosses his butt out or demands graham get a no confidence vote and gets replaced. and with all the dissatisfaction and dare I say hatred of McCain, people will still vote for him as “lesser of two evils” youre dealing with the devil and get what you deserve.

    the azgop is rotting from the head on down

    • State Delegate says:

      True. Robert Graham is a huge disappointment on many counts. Doug Little would never have been in the pocket of the Establishment RINOs.

      I predict Graham will use his post as AZ GOP Chairman and the high level McConnections he’s cemented to run for congress when the free-for-all begins after McCain is gone. I envision current members of congress, all very friendly now, fiercely charging at one another for that much desired senate seat. Not having to run every two years, but having six year terms, is probably more of an inducement than the greater prestige and would far surpass any shallow workplace friendships. If this scenario plays out, Graham could stand a good chance since he would be above that internal congressional warfare.

      • azgary says:

        very possible, the problem I see is there are no prominent az republicans worth voting for senate, the congressmen are rinos, there are some state legislators like steve smith that I would vote for but the gop/rnc/azgop will never let a conservative who is not in the lobbyist pocket get nominated.
        McCain and/or flake get the nomination again, im voting for the democrat, and I will not vote for any of the current pro amnesty congressmen.

      • East Valley Conservative says:

        Beware of Bill McMontgomery. He’s done a complete turnaround on amnesty and is now a solid McCain/McKyl/McFlake tool . I’ll make a prediction also. Montgomery will run for the senate seat currently occupied by John McAmensty. It will be a Kumbaya match made in RINO heaven, as the Naval Academy grad (McCain) endorses the West Point Academy grad (Montgomery). Poof! all rivalry will evaporate as the current senator and the former senators will give him the same kid glove treatment given to flaky Jeff Flake. Montgomery is blatantly setting the stage by recruiting candidates and doling out statewide endorsements, chits that he will call in when he needs them. We can trust him as far as we can throw the Russell, Dirksen and Hart Senate office buildings.

    Sanctioned vs. Sanctioned? This says it all. John McCain was sanctioned (endorsed) by ISIS. Pictures pack an undeniable punch, don’t they?

    McCain made me (an Independent) a Republican so I could vote against him in the primary. That was years ago. I don’t even consider voting for anyone that is endorsed by him. McSAlly comes to mind since he is the one that told her to fly to Tucson and run for Giffords seat. He will keep the AZGOP a party of losers. I’m thinking we need a AZIP. Arizona Independent Party like they just developed in the United Kingdom. They are back to principles starting with citizens and country first. No illegal aliens. No EU(UN) mandates. Since we have more Independents than ever in this state it might be worth a try. It’s a catchy name don’t ya think?

    • East Valley Conservative says:

      Although it sounds good in principle, third parties don’t gain traction and actually take votes from solid conservatives. As an example look no further than the Losertarians and their obvious efforts to skew elections. Registered Independents are also a decidedly mixed bag. There are as many liberals registered that way as frustrated Republicans. That registration shenanigan gives them the opportunity to take out conservatives in the primary. Nothing is clear cut anymore.

      Don’t get me wrong. I understand your frustration all too well, since I am consumed with it myself. Our difference lies in the fact that I believe we have a better chance for an optimum outcome working within the framework of the Republican party to replace the RINOs with principled Constitutional Conservatives. We can no longer afford to keep shooting ourselves in the foot.

    In Pima County the GOP will never learn. They are too dependent on the RINO’s for money and power. McCain is still loved and feared by our bunch. It’s very disgusting unless of course you are one of the bunch. I’d like to know what principles the Republicans have? On paper they might look good but don’t seem to see any principled people in action on the Federal level and very few on the State level.

    I am unable to erase from my mind the photographs published in the New York Post a few weeks ago of John McCain doing the “robot dance” with a rapper at some fundraiser put on by a bunch of NY Libs. Disgusting.
