The Worst Republican Senator
Power Line, by Steven Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 9/23/2017 5:12:07 AM

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself

Yes it is. Paul may be pig headed and unwilling to bend, but at least he has principles and is not for sale. McCain does not have that problem.

I´m with #1. Rand Paul may have some principles that occasionally get in the way of doing the Right Thing, but with McCain, it´s not about principle, it´s about being petty, vindictive, and egocentric.

As tempting as it is to replace obamacare with something else, ANYTHING else, the whole monster and all of its tentacles should be killed first. That´s what these senators promised us and that´s what got many of them reelected. They still don´t get the point that they serve at our discretion. They may think otherwise but the holdouts will go away in the next election.

Hayward makes great points about both McCain and Paul. As far as Paul goes, you don´t always get what you want, but the American people want Obamacare gone. He needs to be willing to compromise on this.

As far as McCain goes, I have to agree that he´s just being vindictive towards Trump and to heck with the American people.

Sorry Power Line, you got it 1000000000% wrong.Rand´s actions are what he truly believes in. McCain´s actions are due to revenge, hatred, jealousy & willing to do anything to stop Trump.

What I want to know is why the Republicans don´t pass the same repeal bill that they sent to obama and he vetoed? It was a clean repeal obamacare that passed in the House and Senate. But we all know the answer to that it passed only because the Republicans knew obama would veto it. The Republicans have done everything possible to fund obamacare and to lessen the devastating financial impact of that odious legislation via Unconstitutional subsidies. The Republicans have been exposed to be the frauds that they are and a majority of them are not any better than McCain or Paul when it comes to obamacare. The Republican party is loathsome the way they have handled the obamacare repeal!

John McCain´s judgement has never been solid. He seems to make snap decisions about all kinds of things without considering any consequences. He should never have been our nominee in 2008 and he proved it with his impulsive choice for VP. Then he further doomed his campaign by halting it to fly to Washington to cast an unneeded vote.
Of course he is still being vindictive with his position on the Obamacare bill. He is exacting revenge against Trump and against every GOP senator who has ever frowned at him.
I´m sorry he´s ill, as I would be about anyone. But nothing justifies his behavior.

Hopefully Rand is merely posturing to preserve his libertarian bona fides (before taking center stage with a dramatic cast of his vote in favor--"for the sake of the nation").

Professional politicians inevitably become the scum that floats on the surface of the swamp.

Both McPain and Little Ron Paul (apologies to the elder) do whatever they can to get in the spotlight which it seems is the point of being in the senate these days -for all but a select few. I´ve always thought Rand was trying to outdo both his old man and the grumpy old man on SNL.

Every now and the American people get to witness a bad senator. The Democrats have had their share...Ted Kennedy is one. Remember him, he also had a brain disease.

The Republicans have John McCain and old egomaniac with an ugly soul.
Basically, this latest ego trip for him is McCain´s payback to President Trump for saying he didn´t think McCain was a hero, and for winning the election and becoming POTUS. The envy and hate that McCain exudes for President Trump is written on his face and in his soul.
As a senator, he has certainly accomplished one thing though, he will be remembered for being a bad Republican senator. When he leaves this world, he will not be missed.
Good bye and good riddance

I agree completely with Poster #12. McCain should have picked Joe Biden as his VP - both have a history of being nasty to those they see has standing in the way of their egos. I used to admire the man for enduring his confinement in VN, and I´m aware that he still has supporters amongst his fellow captives. But he has not been helpful to Conservatives for a long time.

You can count on that, #20. The stories are out there.

I wonder if McCain was really acting on his own, or as a front for other GOP Senators that secretly wanted the bill to go down. Maybe even his buddy Graham. He knew that he´d get praised by the Democrats and the media, and figured that he´s going to be six feet under pretty soon anyway.

Of course, he has no idea how far "down" he´s really going to be.

John McCain has never been a republican. He only labeled himself as such to ride the Reagan coattails to the senate. Where like a tick, he has been embedded, doing damage to this country whenever possible.

Rand Paul serves nobody but himself. The acorn did not fall far from the tree with that one either. Every chance he has had to step up to the plate and do something for the country instead of himself, he runs for the tall grass instead. I will never ever vote for Rand Paul for anything.

I can´t help but think that McCain, while detestable, is just providing cover other Republicans who are up for reelection. He knows he won´t have to run again, so he can vote no, so that others who are up for reelection can vote yes, knowing that the bill is never going to pass anyway. McCain is definitely a problem, but he´s far from the only problem.

Senate Democrats have blocked a bill to keep the federal government running and fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program for the next six years. They have, that is, partially shut the government down. They have taken this step not because of any strong objection to provisions of the funding bill but because it omits a provision they want: an amnesty for illegal immigrants who came to our country as minors. Most Republicans, including President Trump, favor this amnesty as well, but the parties have been unable to agree on what other policies, such as restrictions on follow-on immigration from the

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper is about celebrate one of the most important anniversaries of his life. March 13th will be the fifth anniversary of his commission of open perjury before the Senate Intelligence Committee. More importantly, it also happens to be when the statute of limitations runs out — closing any possibility of prosecution for Clapper. As the clock runs out on the Clapper prosecution, Democrats like Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) have charged that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen committed perjury when she insisted that she could not recall if President Donald Trump called Haiti and African countries

Mayor Catherine Pugh fired Baltimore’s top cop Friday, saying she had grown “impatient” with Commissioner Kevin Davis’ inability to stem the historic pace of killings in the city now stretching into a third year. She named Deputy Commissioner Darryl D. De Sousa, the top commander in the Police Department’s patrol bureau, as Davis’ replacement, effective immediately, and said she would ask the City Council to make the appointment permanent. “Crime is now spilling out all over the city, and we’ve got to focus,” Pugh said. “I am charging [De Sousa] and his staff to get on top of it to reduce the

This may seem like an odd moment for saying so, but a year into the presidency of Donald Trump, I’m elated. Trump was not my first or even second choice for president, but a full two years ago I predicted he would win. I also predicted he’d be a progressive president, which explained why I was not among his supporters and why I am so pleased now. Expecting Progressive Trump was a reasonable assumption. Trump supported the 2009 stimulus, the auto bailouts and the bank bailouts. He’d recently left the Democratic Party and had raised a ton of money for the

Every morning, it seems, President Trump’s most determined opponents awake to find out what sort of obnoxious, fact-challenged, puerile, norm-breaking thing he has offered that day and say to themselves: “Oh, that’s nothing. We can do something dumber than that!”So the nation wades from one bizarre and nonsensical controversy to another. As I write this, I can’t even recall what topic we were debating last week, but I’m certain it was idiotic. Part of the problem is that those who drive coverage of Trump are obsessed with the president in unhealthy ways, ways that have absolutely nothing to do with

With the countdown clock ticking, a divided Congress is racing to reach a compromise in order to prevent a government shutdown by midnight Friday. Republicans control the Senate but they still need 60 votes in order to break a filibuster. "When you only have 51 votes in the Senate, then you have to have Democrat support in order to keep the government — to fund the government," OMB Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters during a White House press briefing Friday. The White House is preparing for what some officials are dubbing a “Schumer shutdown," Mulvaney said. If that happens, it would be the first

Trump´s tendency to move Republicans off
message is a major midterm concern

President Trump reminded Republicans on Thursday how easily he could explode his party’s carefully crafted messaging strategy, signaling how difficult it will be to stay unified in the face of Democratic attacks in a challenging midterm election environment. The House ultimately approved a short-term spending package in an evening vote after Republicans fell in line. The legislation advanced to the Senate, where it faced an uncertain fate because of opposition from both parties; passage requires a supermajority of 60 votes and Democrats are vowing to filibuster. But Trump nearly upended the GOP´s whole strategy. Republicans in Congress were set to blame Democrats

Murphy’s Law was written to describe how governments work. It was proved yet again on January 13 when an employee of the Hawaii Emergency Management System sent a cellphone alert that said, “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” The alert was false but until it was corrected almost 40 minutes later it terrified millions of residents and tourists. Hawaii’s liberal state government didn’t fire the still unidentified employee who so richly deserved firing. Instead, it reassigned him (her?) to different duties. The left — immediately and instinctively — politicized the incident and, of

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP?

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.
