The Real Reason McCain-
Graham Attacked Ted Cruz

PJ Media, by Kerri Toloczko

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/9/2013 10:10:58 PM

Anything involving junior Texas Senator Ted Cruz is likely to invoke some level of toxic response from Senator John McCain of Arizona and his secondary outlet of public communication, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. That Senator McCain harbors a grudge against “the Bushies” for the South Carolina primary defeat that ended his presidential run in 2000 is the worst kept secret in Washington. Having “his” candidate lose in his home state was also a blow to Graham. Known for his long memory, some Senate staffers joke the “R” behind McCain’s name is for “revenge.”

ANYBODY who has a Democrat for a "deep, personal friend" is of great suspicion to me. Luger and Stevens are (were) the worst Republicans. You cannot serve two masters.

Time for John and Miss Lindsey to "ride off into the sunset". McCain has been in the Senate for far too long.

Interesting article. Senator McCain is as petulant as the light in the loafers man-child in the oral office. McCain spent too many years in confinement.

OK. So instead of getting wiped out in 2000 by an obviously stupid but not yet obviously crazy Al Gore, he hangs around and gets wiped out in 2008 by a Kenyan Marxist metrosexual.

McCain destroyed J.D. Hayworth´s reputation during the last senate primary in Arizona. He was all over Hayworth for being a lobbyist after losing his house seat in 2006. Hayworth, unlike McCain, is married to an ordinary woman, not a beer heiress. Too bad Hayworth had to work for a living, unlike McCain.

McCain can dish it out but can´t take it. What a baby. He thinks when he gets all mavericky, he will be invited to all of best parties. He wants to be cool and dine with Obama. Graham is just a limp-wristed toady who will nod in agreement with whatever Boss McCain says.

This article makes absolutely no sense. The Bush family was opposed to Ted Cruz when he ran for the Senate and were intense supporters of Cruz´s primary opponent Lt. Govornor David Dewhurst. The real reason McCain and Graham are opponents of Cruz remains ideological, liberal (McCain, Graham) vs. conservative (Cruz).

Apparently,neither McCain or Graham ever heard of Reagan´s 11th commandment. They could have easily said they disagree with what Paul did but they defend his right to do so.Calling people like Paul,Rubio and Cruz crackpots or some variation of it, is party disloyalty.


I don´t think it has a damn thong to do with the Bushes.I never even heard of McCain´s black baby thing until well after that election.Even if I did,i couldn´t have cared less about it.

This whole episode exposes why McCain lost in 2008. A lot of people saw him as thin skinned and short tempered.They were particularly scared of him starting a war with Iran when people were fed up with the Iraq War.When you have an idiot like Steve Schmidt as your main campaign adviser,it shows how bad he would have been at picking cabinet people. Lieberman would have gotten the first open post.

The only reason he won the 2008 primary is because republican base voters respected his military service.It didn´t hold much water with the general population voters.

I´ll bet a thousand bucks that Mccain is secretly ashamed and regretful he picked Palin for VP.She was an instant rock star after her convention speech but McCain blew all that capital and momentum by leaving the trail to "help" mediate the Wall St. crisis.This exposed his knee jerkism and sense of self importance.

#15, in the 2012 Texas Senate race, the members of the Bush family who endorsed a candidate had to choose between Ted Cruz, who had worked hard in the George W. Bush presidential campaigns and David Dewhurst, whom George W. had known well and served with for several years in Texas state government. Sometimes choices are hard, but maybe this background will help you understand what you perceive as "not making sense".

IIRC, McCain had to dispel the stories about his bad temper during the 2000 primaries. Some in the media were hinting that his being a POW brought out some ugliness in him; therefore, what would happen if he had his finger on nuclear weapons?

I think that is a valid question. His temper was not George W. Bush´s fault! IMO, the bed he has made for himself is his own doing.

This has everything to do with power. McCain sees his influence is slipping among conservatives, if not Republicans. As McCain goes, so goes Graham, whose only "value" is as McCain´s wingman and sycophant. The rest is filigree. If Cruz was part of the GOP "moderate" Amen chorus, he´d be a statesman. The same goes for anyone who is bucking the McCain/Graham/McConnell "leadership."

McCain has made a career out of having been a POW....apparently the high point of his entire life. Most POWs that I know of have moved on with their lives and never talked about the experience. McCain should move on as well, since in his own words the North Vietnamese broke him and he spilled his guts to them. Nothing to be proud of. He has become a bitter old hack politician whose time has long past. Time to retire to Sun City and take Grandma Lindsey with him.

In his bitterness and confusion, he attacks conservatives that have legitimate concerns about obama´s ignorance of our constitution. This is after he allowed an inexperienced, black socialist to whip his butt in a presidential election.

McCain sees his power slipping away. I hope he enjoyed his last supper with Obama.
I believe McCain voted for Obama in 2008 instead of voting for himself.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco.

The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.
