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.

WINCHESTER, VA. — The melodic sounds of a street musician’s trumpet echo through every corner of this old Virginia town as locals shop or make their way to lunch. Daren Johnson has been blowing his horn at the pedestrian mall in the shadow of the Shenandoah Valley Civil War Museum for over an hour. He performs for two reasons: “To make some extra cash and to share a little bit of lightness. We are exhausted as a country,” he said, “a direct result of last year’s election.” Johnson and his wife were tireless volunteers for Hillary Clinton last year. They knocked

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By

Destruction of the Islamic State

The Islamic State´s defeat in Raqqa, Syria, this week is an important milestone in America´s war to destroy that brutal terrorist organization. Yet, it would be a mistake to declare "Mission Accomplished." To bring about the Islamic State´s lasting defeat, the U.S. must act with urgent and ruthless dispatch on both the military and political fronts. The goal is to win a war. That means finishing off the enemy — killing it. It also means leaving behind an environment in which peace is possible. On the military track, President Trump made an important change from the Obama administration when he

It was another week of hunting for witches to burn in Washington. Even Gen. John Kelly, a man who has served our nation with honor and sacrifice, was nearly consumed by the flames. Kelly’s sin is his willingness to be chief of staff to President Trump, and to try to stop the madness that appears determined to destroy Trump, no matter the cost to America. Last week’s episode was instructive about the state of our disunion. That the deaths of four soldiers, ambushed in Niger, would be reduced to political fodder for the bonfire reveals the depths of depravity. The first false charge

MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s latest anti-Trump conspiracy theory was so outlandish that even the dependably liberal HuffPost criticized it as "so flimsy that it could be debunked by a quick glance at a map." On Thursday evening, "The Rachel Maddow Show" opened with a somber 25-minute diatribe that attempted to connect the tragic ambush attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger to the latest version of President Trump’s proposed travel ban, which included the nation of Chad. Maddow essentially claimed that the inclusion of Chad, which recently pulled its troops out of Niger, in the revised travel ban resulted in

I don’t believe it’s disputable at this point that the most potent issue behind the rise of the far right in America and Europe is mass immigration. It’s a core reason that Trump is now president; it’s why the AfD is now the third-biggest party in the German, yes, German, parliament; it’s why Austria’s new chancellor won by co-opting much of the far right’s agenda on immigration; it’s why Britain is attempting (and currently failing) to leave the EU; it’s why Marine Le Pen won a record number of votes for her party in France this spring.

Administration officials would not identify what specific information related to Kennedy’s murder might be kept secret on Trump’s orders, though they acknowledged concern over classified documents held at the Archives that were created decades after

FBI Arrested Russian Spies Getting Close to

In 2010, the FBI arrested ten Russian spies as part of "Operation Ghost Stories." According to a top FBI official, the agency had to act quickly because the "deep cover" agents had come very close to "a sitting US cabinet member." They had already infiltrated then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s inner circle, befriending a Democratic fundraiser close to Clinton. Clinton´s Russian connections have attracted more scrutiny following recent revelations of an FBI investigation into Russian company Rosatom, which gained control of 20 percent of U.S. uranium in the 2010 Uranium One deal. The fact that the Russian spies attempted to

It is hard to imagine that our national descent into political contempt could get any worse than it did this week, when Congresswoman Frederica Wilson accused President Trump of disrespecting the pregnant widow of a fallen soldier during a condolence call, telling her that her husband “knew what he signed up for.” It should have been obvious to all Trump probably flubbed what was intended as a compliment, praising his courage for volunteering to serve in a vocation he knew could cost him his life.

Former FBI Director James Comey knows how to play the G-Man as a straight arrow on television, but he’s a cynical Washington operator in real life. His orchestration of the appointment of his friend Robert Mueller as special counsel to take down President Trump in the fictitious Russia collusion scandal (and all its penumbras and radiations) represents a striking case in point. Comey’s hand in it should discredit the Mueller operation all by itself. Comey is a sort of Rosetta stone for the Russia investigation. Interpreting him and his works might allow one to decipher the hieroglyphics. I’m not saying I’ve

Perhaps as startling as the revelation that the FBI was investigating the Hillary Clinton/Russia/Uranium One collusion and that key figures like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe knew about it and said nothing, is the refusal by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove the non-disclosure agreement gag order on the FBI informant who arguably could put Bill and Hillary Clinton and a few others in federal prison.

Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., again raised the issue of race as she slammed the White House en masse, after a video was released that confirmed White House chief of staff John Kelly had inaccurately portrayed her remarks at a dedication of an FBI building. "The White House itself is full of white supremacists," she told the New York Times on Friday. Video footage of the event, published by the Sun Sentinel on Friday, shows Wilson discussing her role sponsoring legislation to name the building after fallen FBI agents who were killed in a shootout with bank robbers in 1986.

Barack Obama claimed at a campaign rally on Thursday for Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam that “democracy is at stake” in the Virginia governor’s race. Obama took to his first day back on the campaign trail to lament the way politics has turned “nasty,” and yet Obama melodramatically argued that Virginians need to vote for Democrat Ralph Northam because “democracy is at stake.” Obama told the Virginia audience, “America is a story of progress. Ralph Northam wants progress. He wants to take us forward, not backward. He wants to reach out for hope, not fear. We need you to

Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday criticized President Donald Trump´s policies, warning that he risks driving Iran towards nuclear proliferation and worsening a standoff with North Korea if he ends the nuclear deal with Iran. “If you want to negotiate with (North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un, and your goal is to avoid war and try to be able to have a diplomatic resolution, the worst thing you can do is first threaten to destroy his country in the United Nations,” Kerry said in a private lecture delivered at Geneva’s Graduate Institute, according to Reuters. “And secondly, screw around with

WASHINGTON – Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron said President Trump declared war on the press but the media is not at war with him, despite the “hostile” environment that’s been created. “The president on his first day in office went to the CIA headquarters and he said, I have a war with the press. The reality is we don’t have a war with him: we are not at war, we are at work. We are doing our jobs every day the same way we have always done it. You talk about fact-checking; we’ve had a fact-checker at the Washington

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By

Clinton’s use of the walking aide comes after breaking her toe during a UK book tour to promote “What Happened.” Clinton visited her alma mater on the same day she held a book signing event at the Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore in Middletown, CT. The bookstore had strict guidelines for book signing attendees — “She will sign a maximum of two books for each attendee and will not personalize books,” posted Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore
