McCain considering seeking
reelection in 2016

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/22/2013 2:15:30 PM

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday that he is considering running for another term in 2016, when he would be 80 years old. "I´m seriously thinking about maybe giving another opportunity for you to vote for or against me in a few years from now," McCain said on KFYI-AM in Phoenix. "I´m seriously giving that a lot of thought." [1-minute sound bite] Asked by host Barry Young to clarify if he was saying he might run again, McCain said: "That would not be wrong." The New York Times´s Mark Leibovich, who is in Arizona following McCain, first tweeted the news.

He´ll be fortunate not to suffer the embarrassment of a recall movement prior to that...

No, thanks.

We didn´t want him the first several times he ran.

Voted for his better half in ´08, not him.

Does he feel he won´t have enough time before the next election to utterly ruin the Republican party or is he afraid the media cameras will no longer publicize his babbling pronouncements?

It will be interesting. For many years, when election time rolled around, McCain didn´t even put up one campaign sign around Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff...anywhere.

However, even though it wasn´t close, in 2010 he did campaign with signs and visited the border and said he would build "the damn fence". Which he has not done. He also called himself a Tea Party Conservative and a Reagan Republican. Sad to say, if he wants it, he´ll probably be re-elected.

maybe it would be good---Arizona can act like sane grown ups and vote against him 100%.
Maybe that will whack a few pegs off his huge rung of ego.
Otherwise, mcpain just go away and leave us to fix the many messes you created.

The trouble is that in AZ finding someone to primary him is difficult. McCain has a LOT of money and a lot of name recognition for the Low Info Voter. Come the general election, I would be hard pressed to give Reid the Senate because I didn´t like McCain. Tough choice.

This announcement clearly defines the problem with the Republican party.

1. Did McPain even consult with the party before deciding if this would be in their best interest ?

2. Is he not utterly embarrassed by the results of the last time he tried this ?

3. Can´t the Party pull him aside and tell him we need young conservative leaders- and you ain´t it !?

No one is gonna beat Hillary in ´16 anyway.....

#s 21, 24, 28 there doesn’seem to be anyone on the horizon to primary him in 2016, but if a recall movement was launched in early 2014 with a candidate who would not seek election in 2016, it might open up the seat to a young turk in 2016...at a minimum it would give McCain heartburn and be embarrassaing...would Sheriff Joe Arpaio be the one to draft and back in a recall? Gotta watch out for the Dims fielding someone like Rich Carmona again and stealing the seat...

If polling were to clearly demonstrate AZ would throw him out on his keister, you would quickly see him wanting to "spend more time with the family." I don´t know about most of you but I don´t think AZ will ever throw him out. If they haven´t by now, that means nobody is paying much mind to John´s traitorous ways. The Senate is starting to look like a nursing home!

Lord love a duck. Or something that sounds like that. If there´s one Republican that doesn´t belong in Congress, it´s the irascible yet stupefyingly dull-minded McCain, who likes a good reach-around or reach-across, or whatever it is (Stockholm Syndrome?) that he habitually does with the disloyal opposition. Go away, Senator, and put a ball-gag in it.

#33, if you are leaving California (can´t blame you if you are in Marin now), then maybe you can run for the office!!! I would run if I could...even in California. But I can´t. I would even pretend to run as a Demonrat just so I could pull a fast one and be California´s next Ted Cruz. But I can barely hold my own right now. My old best friend in SoCal thinks I should run--if she only knew how hard it would be for someone of principle to win. Still, I´d be happy to pretend to be a typical CA Dem just to get my foot in the door and then "by gosh, I saw the light!!!" and then would turn around and be the REAL voice of the REAL people here--not the dingbats who pretend and are really only in it for themselves. I might not last long, but I sure would shake things up!!! Oh I can dream....

The Clinton-Bush post-presidency lovefest took on a new dimension tonight as another former president — George W. Bush — joined Bill Clinton for the NCAA men’s basketball final in Arlington, Texas. Clinton and George H.W.

Before sentencing former Councilman John Drayman to one year in county jail for embezzling money from a local farmer’s market, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Marcus compared Drayman to other public officials who have made recent headlines for corruption-related charges. “In our world today, especially recently, every time you open the newspaper, you see politicians ripping off the public,” Marcus said, making specific references to the city of Bell scandal and the indictment last week of California Sen.

A look at the pension situation in a few major U.S. cities with the worst-funded retirement systems, according to Morningstar: CHICAGO: Mayor Rahm Emanuel has pitched a plan to cut the city´s nearly $20 billion pension shortfall in half by reducing benefits and hiking property taxes. But the proposal has drawn fierce resistance from labor unions, taxpayer groups and even the fellow Democrats Emanuel needs to approve it. With just 35 percent of the money needed to fulfill its promises to retirees, Chicago´s pensions are the worst-funded of any big U.S. city. PHILADELPHIA: The city´s unfunded pension liability was $5.3

Hollywood Turns Against Obama
with ´Captain America: The Winter Soldier´

Posted By: JoniTx- 4/7/2014 9:47:04 PM     Post Reply
Other than being far and away the best film yet to come out of the ho-hum Marvel Universe, "Captain America: Winter Soldier" is a blatant $175 million "screw you" to Barack Obama´s surveillance state, and especially the President´s dishonesty and rationale surrounding it. Obama might have destroyed America´s economic recovery and healthcare system, but we can at least thank him for inspiring a 4.5 star superhero movie. With the exception of the first "Iron Man," Marvel´s heavy mythology, even heavier CGI, and over-reliance on flashy Euro-trash villains disguised as non-humans has left me cold. This includes the first "Captain America,"

Today he tweeted out some more anti-Koch nonsense: (Tweet) Now we find out, his campaign accepted a donation from the unAmerican monsters in 2003???!!! Andrew Stiles of the Washington Free Beacon has the shocking report: According to campaign finance records, former Koch Industries lobbyist Robert P. Hall III donated $500 to Reid’s campaign in 2003. The Majority Leader should return that money to the Kochs tout suite, or he may as well start donning their insignia,

FORT WORTH — Hendrick Motorsports teammates Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson were involved in the first caution of Monday´s rain-delayed Duck Commander 500 with NASCAR´s most popular driver taking the blame. Earnhardt clipped the frontstretch grass on the 12th lap, blowing out the left-front tire in his No. 88 Chevrolet. He slammed the outside wall, and his car caught fire while limping to the turn 2 apron with heavy front-end damage. Earnhardt scrambled out of the car quickly and said he didn´t realize his car was headed into the grass because his vision was obscured. "I just didn´t see the grass,

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

The Obama administration announced Monday that planned cuts to Medicare Advantage would not go through as anticipated amid election-year opposition from congressional Democrats. The cuts would have reduced benefits that seniors receive from health plans in the program, which is intended as an alternative to Medicare. Under cuts planned by the administration, insurers offering the plans were to see their federal payments reduced by 1.9 percent, which likely would have necessitated cuts for customers. Instead, the administration said the federal payments to insurers will increase next year by .40 percent. The healthcare law included $200 billion in cuts to Medicare

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that Republicans might as well wear the insignias of the billionaire Koch brothers on their suits, likening the connection between the Kochs and the GOP to corporate sponsors and NASCAR drivers. “NASCAR fans can easily find their favorite drivers by simply looking at the cars as they fly by, because there are corporate emblems on the hood of the car … for our clothing here in the Senate, we don’t bear commercials logos. Many Republicans might as well wear Koch insignias,” Reid said Monday. “While they don’t wear Koch Industries’ ties and jackets, they

Thirteen-year-old Ethan Chaplin, who attends school in Vernon, New Jersey, was suspended for two days and will undergo a psychological evaluation after another student complained that he was "twirling a pencil" like a gun. According to News 12 New Jersey, Chaplin said he was "just twisting around a pencil with a pen cap on it when a student behind him yelled, ´He´s making gun motions, send him to juvie.´" Chaplin told officials he had repeatedly been bullied by the student who complained and that the complaint about the pencil was just an extension of that. But the school suspended him

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch.

Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."




For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
