McCain: Cutting edge on technology

John McCain: I don’t use email so I won’t write things I later regret

 Amidst the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a personal email address and server during her time as secretary of state, Sen. John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day, confirms that he has opted out of using email altogether:

“Well, you know that from time to time I get a little emotional. I’m afraid that if I was emailing, given my solid, always calm temperament that I might email something that I might regret,” he continued, adding that he prefers to use the phone and Twitter. “You could send out an email that you would regret later on and would be maybe taken out of context,” McCain said. “And frankly, I don’t have any trouble communicating with my constituents without it.”

Of course, it’s also possible to say things on Twitter that you later regret, like, perhaps this tweet McCain sent out back in 2012:”Good pic of my son Jimmy’s bulldog, Apollo — I’m sorry Mr. President, he’s not on the menu!” [@SenJohnMcCain 19 Apr 2012]

      Doc.
      Your slogan 86 the 80 year old is beyond perfect!

      • Doc says:

        Thanks! But honestly, I think Kathy was the 1st to coin that one. I’m taking liberties with it, & will continue to do so until he’s….86’d!

        No Doc you have the honors. “86 the 80 yr old. Gotta give credit where it’s due. :)

    I just heard the “fork tongue express” pontificate his criticism about Obama’s Supreme Court selection. Believe it or not, McCain was critical because the nominee was weak on the second amendment.

    This from the man who destroyed the Republican Party with his endless radical attacks on our Constitution. In this specific case, you will remember that McCain and his liberal Democrat seat mate, Liberman, attempted to pass legislation to close the gun shows by saying there was a gun show loophole.

    What a lying hypocrite this egomaniac is. Biden can’t hold a candle to him. McCain remains the poster boy for “human trafficking” as his wife campaigns against it. The Republican political elite bosses have enabled this farce and many other RINOs like him by supporting them for reelection for decades.

    And they wonder why Trump and Cruz are so popular.

      …weak on th’ 2nd Amendment…meh.

      …maximus hypocriticus mailed me a response several years ago after I called him out on his 2A stance, He stated in that hard copy letter that he was in favor of “universal background checks” for our safety. THAT…from the senior ?senator? representing the most observant 2A state in America…

      I most certainly DO NOT need that @$$-hat lookin’ out for my safety. I’m fully aware, trained, practiced, & capable of looking out for my family & myself. As you, & everybody here are well aware, that person has most definitely forgotten his place.

      86 TH’ 80 YEAR OLD!!

    McCain is a mental midget with an outsized ego, made worse by sycophantic fools like Mike Broomhead ( KFYI) and the fake conservatives on Fox news who can’t seem to get enough of him. I’ve stopped watching.

  4. LEO IN TSN says:

    McTraitor’s statement about email “And frankly, I don’t have any trouble communicating with my constituents without it.” is totally incredible. When is the last time anybody knows of McTraitor communicating with any constituent besides little Robbie McRINO McGraham?

    This from the phantom senator whose “townhalls” with his constituents are all secret, closed-door, by-invitation-only scripted affairs. How do you say “hypocrit”?

    PS: this is the same McTraitor who reported years ago (with John f’ing Kerry, who served in Vietnam) that there were no outstanding POWS/MIAS. Yet now I hear that investigations are underway to identify American POWS who have been moved between Vietnam and the prisons of Cuba, where they have been the subjects of torture and medical experimentation. What a “senator.”

    God bless America.

    Hmm…2016. It must be an election year. Saw where McCain had a public meeting on the subject of the Phoenix VA hospital. With the poor treatment the vets have received by the federal government, Bush (Walter Reed in D.C.) and especially Obama – McCain didn’t go out of his way to help fix the problem. The “war hero” is happy to take that title but it doesn’t seem to mean that much when it comes to his helping our present war heroes, many of whom right here in Phoenix have chosen to commit suicide because of the lack of attention they’ve gotten.

    Then there’s this. The maverick working against Donald Trump – he’ll do anything even if it means warming to Ted Cruz:

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I also meant to comment on McCain’s 2012 tweet about the bulldog. Can you believe he tweeted that?!! The guy who chastised Bill Cunningham, the veteran talk show host, for using Obama’s middle name. McCain is a fool.

    Talk about cutting edge of technology.
    Border Patrol says that a large portion of the border fence between AZ and Mexico is DOWN, and that trucks from the Mex side have been passing through without being stopped.
