For those of us who will see our insurance premiums skyrocket in the next few months, we know exactly who to blame. Yes the “Gentleman from the State of Arizona, Senator John McCain”. McCain used to call himself a “maverick”, yet a closer look at his record shows that he is not so much interested in bucking the system. To the contrary, McCain really just likes to draw attention to himself in a rather juvenile ways.
For someone who talks about how much he is disgusted by wasteful spending in Congress, wasn’t he the same “maverick” who supported that big pork barrel spender Thad Cochran over Chris McDaniel, a principled conservative who wanted to put an end to wasteful government spending? Didn’t McCain run on putting an end to Obama Care, yet was the deciding vote on saving Obama Care for posterity? McCain has been around Washington since 1982. He cannot be so naïve that he really thinks the problem with Washington is that we need bipartisanship. He was there when Pelosi/Reid shoved Obama Care down our throats.
See this from his failed presidential run from 2008, and you’ll notice that McCain compares himself with Teddy Roosevelt. Roosevelt gave us the start of the “Progressive Era” a time in which government grew as it never had before during the history of the Republic. This is what McCain sees as good governance.
And his political skills on the national level are to be charitable, bizarre. Remember this was the guy who campaigned on Saturday Night Live by doing a QVC Skit selling off unused campaign merchandise. Don’t believe me, here he is: http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/mccain-qvc-open/n12355?snl=1
Watch the video – you’ll see that McCain thinks losing is honorable, and quite frankly, losing is funny to him. You’d think that McCain would be more interested in working with his fellow Republicans to ensure that he remains a committee chair, however he is so craven for attention that he’d rather get on the Sunday talk shows and plaster his face over the airwaves than look after the wants and needs of the good people of Arizona. Many of whom must be getting sick of being screwed by McCain every few years.
For those of you who think that it’s wrong to criticize a war hero such as McCain, sorry but he can’t thrive forever on his time in the Hanoi Hilton. If McCain truly loved his country, he’d do what is in our best interests and resign – or see a shrink to figure out why he’s more interested in showboating than doing his job.
John McCain is the main dweller of the swamp. John McCain is a swamp dwelling creep.
