RINO McCain Could Seek Another Term

If you enjoy the kind of legislation by senility provided by octogenarians on Capitol Hill, here’s some good news: RINO Senator John McCain (Ariz.), who will turn 80 before his next election, said that he will likely seek another term in office.

During an interview with an Arizona radio station this week, McCain said that he was getting “a lot of encouragement” from the business community and giving serious thought to another run.

“I’m seriously thinking about maybe giving another opportunity for you to vote for or against me in a few years from now,” said McCain, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee and five-term Senator.

“I’m seriously giving that a lot of thought,” he said. “I’m certainly getting a lot of encouragement from our business community who’s overwhelmingly upset about what we did in shutting down the government because of what it did to their businesses and Arizona’s economy.”

McCain’s role in criticizing the more conservative wing of the GOP in recent weeks makes unclear what he believes is the best direction for the future of the GOP, or whether he even cares.

On Sunday, during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” McCain was asked whether he believed Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) would be a viable Presidential candidate in the Nation’s next election. The five-term Senator said that he couldn’t predict the future, but that Cruz would lack support outside of a strong conservative base.

“The question is,” McCain continued, “will our party be able to field a winning Presidential candidate and Vice President so that we can win the election rather than — unfortunately, the record of the last couple has not been what we want it to be.

“I can say that from a personal standpoint,” he added.

McCain’s acknowledgement that his own GOP style did little to energize voters in 2008, however, shouldn’t be construed as an endorsement of more Tea Party influence within the Party. The longtime Senator rarely misses an occasion to malign those among his colleagues who have embraced the Tea Party platform.

McCain placed the blame for the government shutdown on the Tea Party, saying that “tea partiers specifically” wrongly told “millions of Americans” that Obamacare could be defunded. He also called out Cruz for criticizing Obamacare, saying that “the people spoke” when they re-elected President Barack Obama and the GOP should go along with the President’s program.

“We fought as hard as we could in a fair and honest manner and we lost,” McCain said. “One of the reasons was because we were in the minority, and in democracies, almost always the majority governs and passes legislation.”

    McCain seeking another term does not surprise me. When he got reelected this last time, he said it would be his final term. I didn’t believe him. I never believe any thing his says. Besides, he’s not finished helping Obama destroy the country.

  • Sarah Conner

    Oh puhleeze…just bleeping retire already,you old,senile basturd…if you need help in doing that there are plenty American People that would gladly give you a hand…

  • pnwdave

    The good people in the Great State of Arizona should get some pride, screw their heads on straight and get rid of this RINO before he does MORE damage to their freedoms and liberties.
    I wouldn’t even vote for this guy for dogcatcher!
    Of course, he has his millions already, so I’m sure if the people of Arizona don’t choose to elect him again, his good buddy Barry (or whoever the next “progressive” with power is) will find someplace for him as a reward for his help in destroying our country.
    Let’s see…maybe the Benghazi posting for the State Department will still be open!

  • CJM2

    McCain is a liar, plain and simple. The people have NEVER approved ovomit’s death care act; furthermore, the majority of the people did NOT vote for this predatory pathological liar in chief–he stole the election via fraudulent means and McCain knows this. He should stick with his decision of a couple weeks ago when he said he would not run for another term. AZ keep this turncoat traitor home where he belongs….America doesn’t want him or need him.

  • TexRancher

    Guess massive voter fraud didn’t help Obama…..These C.S. RINOs never did challenge Obama as a viable candidate, but Obama’s people sure went after McSenile who refused to fight back! Now that’s leadership.
    If we lose a battle, I want it to be because we were beaten, not surrender without a fight like Boehner and McConnell do with the help of a bunch of gutless RINOs.
    Right now, we are about to lose this country because these C.S. types refuse to even admit that we’re up against a socialist/Marxist enemy lead by avowd communists who tailor made Obama to be their front man. We, in the real world can see that, but the self centered political phonies refuse to.
    We are about to wake up one morning to the realization that we ALLOWED a dictator to take over, but it will be too late.
    The truth will be that we allowed this country and its sovereignty to be sold out for a few pieces of political silver and the votes of the “gimmie-don’t work me” bunch who were cultivated for this purpose, were bought with cheap strips of paper that could and would be cut off suddenly when they were no longer needed.
    Stalin is serving as Obama’s guide; control the food, control the people. Think this is off base? Read his executive orders. They’re all about gathering his power, not helping the country! Read Obamacare. This isn’t about healthcare, it’s about control: Your bank account, your medical records, Obama’s private army (Called stabilization force) that answers only to him. It’s in there along with a lot of other scary stuff. “Pass it before you can see what’s in it”! If and when you read it, you’ll see why they had to have it passed first…..
    Not to fear though, FEMA is busily building housing for all AMERICANS in every State and we’re hearing nothing about that from our “electeds”. WHY?

    McCain and Collins are in the same camp, but she promised only 2 terms in office, yet here she goes again in 2014 and she will have the liberals to thank if she is elected–in both parties.

    • Liz

      Pelosi was going to retire when she thought Romney was going to win and when O’Bama won she changed her tune.

  • Jim B

    I appreciate your service this country old man, I really do, but your time is up as a representative of the people.

  • Liz

    McCain needs to retire. Every time things get tough, he sides with the Liberal Democrats. He talks a good line but actions speak louder than words, maybe part of his problem is his war experience, fear is a horrible thing and after what he went though that may be part of his problem.

  • Stuart Shepherd

    Despite being an undeniably true true war hero of incredible courage and strength beyond what most of us could only hope for, it is well well well beyond time for Mr. McCain to retire in honor. For years he has done way more damage than good for this country and, in a sense, more damage than his political opponents by legitimizing their positions with his sometimes insane-sounding notions of statesmanship and compromise. Many of the cruelest dictators around the world were “war heroes” at one point for their respective countries. This is not, alone, the mark of a legitimate political leader or a desirable one.

    • Lumpy Rutherford

      You & many others continue to spout the lie that McCain The Insane is a war hero….it is all nonsense (see below), he was labeled “the Canary” by his captors as soon as he was caught & started babbling away, he tried to stilfe the search for POWs because he did not want his dirty little secret to be revealed:

      Take nothing away from being a POW. His actions in the military belie him being a HERO. The standing in the academy solidifies his not being the sharpest tool in the shed. His muzzling of Sarah Palin cost him an election. This man needs retired last election! He is part of the reason the GOP is having issues, quite a few more are in need of finding their life’s work!

      • Lumpy Rutherford

        Excellent post, especially about Palin….she had more balls then him, he was afraid of being called a racist, or maybe he wanted to lose knowing he & Obummer are both puppets of NWO Power elites, he is a member of Council on Foreign Relations!!

        McCain The Lame, PLEASE GO AWAY!!

  • Gary

    This line is especially telling:

    He also called out Cruz for criticizing Obamacare, saying that “the people spoke” when they re-elected President Barack Obama and the GOP should go along with the President’s program.

    He seems to forget enough people spoke and the Republican House maintained its majority. The separation of powers as described (and mandated) by the Constitution is there so no single branch should have to “go along” with anyone’s program. There is a natural and necessary adversarial, if not confrontational, relationship built in to the Constitution. If McCain had his way, we would just be a strict democracy and have constant mob rule.

    • Merle Dickey

      That is why there are two parties, so they can negotiate when they don’t agree with each other. He just wants to give it all to the dems because they have an illegally elected jack — in office!! We don’t need politicians like him in DC ( There are several on the other side we don’t need too )

  • wyatt81

    He simply won’t walk away from the power, privilege, and attention. It’s like asking an addict to walk away from his drugs. It’s why we see so many of these corrupt old egomaniacs still in office decades later-grasping the power and the deals right until the end. Pathetic and disgusting.

  • Merle Dickey

    Easy fix.Arizona , don’t vote for him! The same with the immigration amnesty they are pushing off on us whether we want it or not. Don’t hire them. No job, they will go back home. Also, quit giving them free food and housing allowances.
