Senator McCain, self-absorbed sell out

Fritz has a lot on Senator Maverick

And of course, the big news: From the NYT: McCain Announces Opposition to Republican Health Bill, Likely Dooming It. Yahoo: GOP’s ‘Obamacare’ repeal all but dead; McCain deals the blow. Althouse: “Senator John McCain of Arizona announced on Friday that he would oppose the latest proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act…”

“… leaving Republican leaders with little hope of succeeding in their last-ditch attempt to dismantle the health law” (NYT).

So Lindsey Graham’s being his best friend was not enough.

This is all about McCain’s massive ego. He is a disgrace, a damned lying disgrace!

Completely unfit to serve in the Senate. Whatever sense of duty McCain had, it is long gone

Imagine if Bill Kristol fought as hard against the Left as he does against Trump

Yes, imagine if he, and other go along to get along Republicans, or maybe we should say Republicants actually engaged the Democrats and fought for the people who put them into office, yes, imagine what they might accomplish

William Kristol who was the ideological driving force behind the Never Trump movement is joining with anti-Trump Republicans to assemble a group to prevent the reelection of President Donald Trump.

The Hill is reporting “Bill Kristol wants to create the ‘Committee Not to Renominate the President’”:

Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol said he is considering creating a committee aimed at defeating President Trump in the 2020 election.

The conservative commentator and Trump critic told the New York Times that he has had informal discussions about launching a “Committee Not to Renominate the President.”

“We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism,” Kristol told the publication.

Kristol’s comments were part of a report by the Times which listed potential Republican Trump challengers in the 2020 presidential election. The list included Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Vice President Mike Pence.

Kristol has proven to be one of the fiercest conservative Trump critics, frequently criticizing the president’s rhetoric as well as his policies.

The editor went as far as comparing the Trump administration to the decline of the Roman Empire last month.

A list of possible “saviors” includes, besides Mr. Squishy Kasich, John McCain, yes, the guy who stabbed us in the back on ObamaCare so he could play Maverick!

Paging Senator McCain: Please shut up

I wish McCain would go after Democrats like he does actual Conservatives Via The Right Scoop

In his big CPAC speech, Ted Cruz said the following:

You want to lose elections? Stand for nothing. Look at the last four congressional elections, in ’06, ’08, ’10′, and ’12. In 3 of the four we followed that strategy. In ‘06, ‘08 and ‘12, we put our head down, we stood for nothing and we got walloped.

The one election that was a tremendous election was 2010, when Republicans drew a line in the sand. We said we stand unequivocally against Obamacare, against bankrupting the country, and we won an historic tidal wave of an election.

And of course then all of us remember President Dole, and President McCain, and President Romney. Now look those are good men, those are decent men — but when you don’t stand and draw a clear distinction, when you don’t stand for principle, Democrats celebrate.

McCain went on MSNBC today and said that Ted Cruz crossed a line and should apologize to Bob Dole:

He can say what he wants to about me, and he can say anything he wants to, I think, about Mitt – Mitt’s capable of taking it. But when he throws Bob Dole in there, I wonder if he thinks that Bob Dole stood for principle on that hilltop in Italy when he was so gravely wounded and left part of his body there fighting for our country?

This is why I said McCain sounds like a slimy Democrat because this is exactly what slimy Democrats do. McCain goes on MSNBC to attack Cruz and suggest that he doesn’t respect the military sacrifice that Dole gave for this country. How dare he!

Again, Senator McCain, please shut up.

Report: Sarah Palin Helped John McCain In 2008… RINOs Hardest Hit

Report: You Betcha Sarah Palin Helped John McCain In 2008, has 2016 support Base – Washington Examiner

It’s been debated for five years, and the conventional wisdom has generally concluded that Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, hurt Sen. John McCain’s chances to beat then-Sen. Barack Obama for the presidency with her outsized and controversial personality.

.

But now a comprehensive new analysis of the so-called “Palin Effect” finds that in the final analysis, the former Alaska governor helped McCain by attracting more voters to the ticket, crushing a mainstream media view.

What’s more, while she attracted wider press attention than most prior veep candidates, her actual impact for a No. 2 was about average.

“Palin had a positive effect on McCain,” according to the new Palin analysis in the authoritative Political Research Quarterly.

Digesting mountains of data, two political science professors from Bradley University in Peoria, Ill., said their findings showed that the conventional wisdom that independent voters ran from the McCain-Palin ticket was wrong. They found that independent voters had the same reaction to Palin as Republicans, who largely liked her.

Both findings could provide a basis for a 2016 run for the presidency by the Tea Party favorite.

“Palin did not have a negative effect on McCain’s voter share overall, nor did she result in eroded support for McCain among critical swing voters such as independents and moderates,” the duo wrote.

Their analysis picked apart a recent report that Palin drove off voters and was uniquely divisive, claiming it was flawed.

Instead, it found that Palin “did not have a unique or unprecedented influence on the race; at best, she had precisely the same small effect on vote choice in 2008 that we would expect of any running mate.”
