McCain Apologizes For Calling Rand
Paul, Ted Cruz ‘Wacko Birds’ On
Fox News: ‘That Was Inappropriate’

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/15/2013 7:20:49 PM

Friday afternoon on Fox News, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) delivered his first on-camera apology to his Senate colleagues Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) for calling them “wacko birds” in an interview with The Huffington Post following Paul’s filibuster. Responding to a question from Neil Cavuto about his recent confrontations with the younger generation of his party, McCain offered a humble and sincere apology. “In an interview I said that Senator Paul and Senator Cruz were ‘wacko birds,’” he said. “That was inappropriate. I apologize

Comments:
I could barely get through this interview. Neil was overly respectful of McCain to the point it was annoying. McCain laughed (you can just hear him) when he said he apologized to Paul and Cruz. Allegedly he just wants everthing to be like when Reagan was president and presents himself to be a Reagan Republican. He´s the last person on earth I would call a Reagan Republican.

Still waiting for an apology to Billy Cunningham, whom he chastised at the time for referring to his opponent as "Barack HUSSEIN Obama" while warming up the crowd before an early campaign appearance. As I recall, he said THAT was inappropriate.

Ditto #2. I voted for him because of Sarah Palin. If he had let her go, he would be President. What a jerk!

I´m greatful for his service in the armed services but I hold this man partly responsible for misrepresening himself WAY OVER the top to get the 2008 GOP nomination, then running such terrible no teeth campaign. He has a hand in putting Obama in office and heling to destroy tis nation.

Yes,re # 3´s comment. And the very first thing Obama did as president was to use his entire name,BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, as he was being sworn into office. I recognized that as a slap at McCain for being such a dumb cluck in the way he managed his campaign

McCain acted like a man and apologized.
It´s sickening that the far right wastes so much time acting like 5 year olds calling McCain juvenile names.
When are they going to apologize for the years of ridicule and besmirching they gave to a Navy pilot
who gave five years of his life
in a POW camp ?
Limbaugh and Mark Levin always lead the charge against Senator McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham.
Both men have served their country in uniform.
Unlike Limbaugh and Levin.
McCain and Graham both deserve respect , as do all members of the military.
McCain ,the duly elected Senator from Arizona ,
is not the problem.
Obama is the problem.
The far right is so blinded by their hatred of all things Republican ,
they have lost sight of the real threat to America.
Justin Amash, the Palestinian Congressman and darling of the Tea Party from Michigan recently called
McCain a racist and demanded that
he apologize for making a joke about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The far right has become the new left.

#23

A lot of people served their country - that doesn´t automatically make them good people "deserving of respect".

McCain is part of the GOPe that prefers their death grip on second place to doing what is best for the country. They are not conservative, they have their own sets of rules that maintain their special status. They rule this country like potentates - granting themselves ever more power while keeping up what front they feel is necessary to keep them where they are. Why did the people of Arizona keep this man in office?

I´m sick of these "senators for life". Both parties are corrupt and want to keep it that way. This is why both parties trashed Sarah - she would have ruined their gravy train that we pay for.

#23 – Yes, Obama and his policies are the problem. Unfortunately McCain and Graham are too weak and pliable to counter Obama’s policies. To protect their perceived power they foolishly mistake compromise for statesmanship.

I am closer in age to McCain and Graham than Ryan. I’ve observed the effect of mid-life crisis as ‘old guys’ realize their power is being challenged by the ‘kids’. Those who have remained emotionally secure and value driven look for opportunities to mentor and encourage the youngsters. They share their knowledge and wisdom.

Those who have lived only for their own status, power and egos tend to snap and snarl at their younger colleagues in an attempt to minimize them. Even if they were rock solid on policy, Senators McCain and Graham would be snapping and snarling at anyone or anything that challenges their status. Their fear of fading into history overwhelms any principles they once held.

John, poor apology. But that is between you and those you stabbed in the back (berated) Take care and think twice next time you speak what little mind you have remaining. Sarah Palin put herself out on a limb when she endorsed you in your run for Az. US Senator. DO NOT disappoint this remarkable woman. She walked thru fire for you, has a lot on the line to see your success. Try your best not to let her down. This, ´my friend´ is the only plus I can recall when any of your more positive accomplishments are mentioned.

Okay, I´m fed up with the POW, gave 5 years of his life, war hero, etc. bullcrap about this POS senator.

Just because of this - we´re suppose to give up our republic to the dems - with this war hero´s help? I don´t think so. If he was such a hero, he would be able to see how the U.S. of A is being lost to communists with HIS help. He isn´t the only soldier that ever gave a part of his life and body in war. Some others actually gave their lives, limbs, etc.

Ahhh, maybe he is a manchurian candidate. That´s what I´m truly beginning to believe.

Oh, and I agree with poster that said he doesn´t have a sincere bone in his body.. He left those in Nam.

I truly despise the little napoleon. I think he´s NUTS!!

A few quick things to wrap this up - is or did Miss Lindsey offer up an apology? Presumably the backlash on his "inappropriate remarks" got some negative vibes from his followers and fellow senators. # 23 is very close to being a fool!

Sorry, #23: McCain has been more than fully compensated for his having been a Vietnam POW. He has milked that status for all it´s worth. McCain is known for having chummy relations with bribery-prone Arizona constituents--for just one example, look up the Charles Keating S & L scandal that cost our country hundreds of $millions.

I served six years in the United States Army. If having worn a uniform is all we need, let´s find another POW Vet to take McCain´s place. That PFC Wikileaks kid traitor also wore a uniform.

Te seante is a very exclusive club. They don´t believe a person earns their stripes to speak out unless theyv´ been there 10 years or so to build up credibility.Chairmanships are doled out on seniority,whether you´re qualified or not.

When a senator is labeled a "junior" senator,their job is to sit in the corner and wait your turn. This is what McCain is really mad about.He doesn´t think these "kids" have earned their right to speak out yet.
There´s a pseudo chain of command,where front and center issues are better discussed by seasoned old timers.

This excludes shoot from the lip upstarts.

President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

Authorities are searching for more bodies after a massive mudslide in a rural part of Washington state killed at least eight and possibly left more than 100 missing, while crews battle uneven ground and rising waters. A 1-square-mile mudslide struck Saturday morning in Snohomish County, critically injuring several people and destroying about 30 several homes. Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene and authorities described the search for additional survivors to be "grim." John Pennington, emergency response managing director, said there are reports of up to 108 people missing in the mudslide but noted that number is unconfirmed. "This is a large

First Lady Michelle Obama included cautious but clear remarks on freedom of expression and worship in a speech in Beijing at the weekend – comments that were ignored in state media coverage of her visit, where the preferred focus has been on fashion and food. Before her visit to China began the White House said she would promote education and “people-to-people” exchanges, and would steer clear of contentious issues like human rights. But in an address to Chinese and American students at the Stanford Center at Peking University, Mrs. Obama did insert references to key human rights, albeit without any

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is pushing back after data whiz Nate Silver projected Sunday that Republicans will win the Senate this year. In an interview with Jon Karl on ABC´s "This Week," Silver, who recently relaunched his FiveThirtyEight franchise, gave Republicans a 60-percent chance of winning a Senate majority during the 2014 midterm election cycle. But Democrats, who have in the past lauded Silver for his analysis of polls, on Monday were skeptical of his projection this time around.

Silver, who just launched his own site, FiveThirtyEight, under the ESPN banner, spoke to ABC’s Jon Karl in a segment on This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning. There he said his best prediction saw the GOP taking six seats, the exact number they’d need to have a one-vote majority. However, that prediction was +/-

She made the comments in response to a question about studying abroad. (Snip) The first lady responded, "Excellent. And one thing that you pointed out that I think it’s important to consider is not letting fear be your guide. Andthat’s oftentimes what holds many young people back from doing fabulous things. Let’s take my husband, for example. He hasdragged me kicking and screaming into things that I wanted parts of. (Laughter.) And a lot of it was

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency. Why weren´t their warnings leading the news? In one sense, the association´s appeal

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

President Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine. At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival. Putin has forced the United States and Europe to refocus on the origins of the modern transatlantic alliance -- the 1949 NATO defense partnership designed to prevent a

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.
