All time first: AZ Republic runs an aditorial praising McCain

No, that is not a misspelling.  It’s our description of what we found looking for Sunday’s editorial in the Arizona Republic.

There it was, a full page topped by the all capitalized words in bold type:



The princely accolade is following by a  seven-and-a -half-inch square photo of pre-brain surgery scarred John McCain.  Directly below that is a paragraph from “Arizona’s health care  and business leaders” heaping praise on  Arizona’s senior senator (ASS)  for his  desire to work with the Democrats on health care reform in what these “leaders” call a bipartisan manner in “adopting lasting and meaningful health care reform.”

You know, exactly as Barack Obama and the Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did when they shoved Obamacare down America’s throat. In the intervening years since the massive government overtaking of healthcare was passed, Arizonans have seen a dramatic 116 percent rise in premiums — which the “leaders” have either overlooked or actually don’t care about.

Following the praiseful paragraph is a Sept. 22, 2017 quote from McCain which the “leaders” say they couldn’t agree with more. It was taken from his speech following his second vote against President Donald Trump’s efforts to follow through on his campaign promise to “repeal and replace” Obamacare.

McCain, who was embarrassingly trounced 52.1 to 44.5 when he ran for the presidency in 2008, is still smarting over President Trump’s overwhelming victory over Hillary Clinton. Both McCain and Jeff Flake voted for the scandal plagued liberal Democrat, saying they could not support Donald Trump — though he emerged victorious from a Republican primary field of 17 contestants.

The besotted signers on the aditorial must have short memories. Just last year, running for another 6-year senate term at age 80, McCain campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare. Were they happy with him then or did they vote for Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick who supported Obamacare?

    I saw this while breakfasting at a nearby restaurant that places several copies of the newspaper around for patrons to read and leave for others. When I read this “ad”itorial (great wordplay, SRAZ!!) it was all I could do to keep my breakfast down.

      I think that my complimentary glass of water would somehow find its way onto that pulp.

      Unfortunately, if anyone wants to spend good money to purchase an ad that might have a different perspective, there is no opportunity to do so.

      When the ASS can no longer keep the body vertical, I have every belief that Congress and Meghan will Demand that the entire country shut down for a lengthy period of mourning (to further eclipse Trump).

    It’s clear these medical entities and so-called leaders benefit from McCain’s antics. They are most likely his heavy donors and he’s trying to ensure Dr. Kelli Ward doesn’t cash in on his $tockpile. As a physician, that wouldn’t be on her agenda. She all too well understands the politics at work here. Dr. Ward is challenging Jeff Flake who needs to get a real job outside of government, where he has to be accountable. It’s important that he is sent home in 2018 or we’ll be saddled with another McCain who won’t leave unless it’s in a box.

  3. Patriot Dad says:

    It’s good to see McCain’s duplicity exposed. He’s a phony and a liar and will do whatever he thinks benefits him at any given point in time.

  4. Maggie says:

    John McCain knows his days are numbered and he doesn’t intend to waste any of them indulging in decency, which is as foreign to him as truth.

  5. Braveheart says:

    Here’s another McCain ad to add to your arsenal. Here he takes Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick to task for supporting Obamacare….exactly as he has done, TWICE.

  6. Saguaro Sam says:

    On the TV show called 60 Minutes (hey, is that Still on?)

    John McCain tells all about how he got IMMEDIATE medical care from Mayo. His doctors said ‘it can’t wait till Monday’.

    Wife Cindy sitting next to him is almost unrecognizable.
    Likely fresh off of some Botox and fillers.

    You would Never get the same, immediate care.

    For example, if you happened to experience a spontaneous detached retina, which is a true medical emergency that could quickly lead to irreversible blindness in the affected eye, and it happened between 5 pm on Friday and 6 am of the following Monday, you would NOT get the corrective surgery that you need.
    The hospital will NOT call in an eye surgeon and the surgical team. Unless you are a person of privilege.
    It’s the cost. The cost of opening an OR and bringing in a team is big bucks, and the insurance company will likely not pay for it.
    And that’s just one example of what you will be denied.
    Perhaps you will not even be aware of the consequences of having to wait for days.

    Ask questions. Take note of the names of persons who are giving you information. And have along with you someone willing to be an advocate for you, in case you are feeling too poorly to ask questions.

    • Saguaro Sam says:

      And, now, according to the New York Post, McCain is demanding the Trump apologize to him for a comment that Trump made a year ago.

    • terry dudas says:

      Scottsdale’s Mayo operation is not rated too highly across national standard. A few friends of mine, have sought advice from them and have not been satisfied at all. In one case, the fellow got a classic run-around while consulting on Parkinson’s disease. All in all, I am not impressed with what I have learned about this operation; it doesn’t compare with the MN clinic.

    Ok folks…the reason this bombastic @$$hole is doing what he’s been doing is that HE KNOWS he’s not going to see the end of this senatorial term.
