On Wednesday, longtime Arizona Senator and failed Presidential candidate John McCain bizarrely decided to attack the TEA Party and even former U.S. Senate candidates. John McCain, a one-time war hero and a POW in Vietnam has consistently soiled his good name over the years but Wednesday he finally disgraced himself to the point of no return. For the many conservative Republicans who had seen McCain for the RINO that he is for some time, his comments came with little surprise. He has always had severe contempt for the TEA Party uprising of the American people and the lack of support for his Presidential campaign by conservatives. The fact is that the only Republican candidate of 2008 that could have allowed Socialist Barack Obama to win the Presidency was in fact John McCain. McCain used an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal to display his ire at the TEA Party and under the guise of “reading from the column” he proceeded to blast TEA Party members as “Hobbits”, question the intelligence of freshman members of Congress and then turned his insults to Republican U.S. Senate candidates.
While reading the article, McCain made the following comment, "The idea seems to be that if the House GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling, a default crisis or gradual government shutdown will ensue and the public will turn en masse against Barack Obama....Then Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the tea party hobbits could return to Middle-earth...This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell into GOP nominees. The reality is the debt limit will be raised one way or another." Before we jump the gun, let’s hear Senator McCain in his own words, as he defends his lunatic statements:
FYI, McCain’s “conservative voting record” is light on substance. His record is more like that of Mike Castle who was defeated by one of the candidates that he cited in his little rant. McCain took a cheap shot at Christine O’Donnell, who smacked down his friend Mike Castle in 2010 and Christine fired back by saying, ".... I think that it is inappropriate to insult the judgment of the majority of Republicans in Nevada and Delaware and that the implication that nominating RINOs somehow means we win was irrefutably disproven by McCain's own presidential candidacy debacle. After that nightmare, McCain had to veer right so fast he almost got whiplash from all his flip-flopping just to keep his Senate seat. It doesn't help him to attack those conservatives and Tea Partiers who graciously gave him another chance to keep his job...."
We concur Christine, we concur, in fact, consider John McCain’s next opponent, my new favorite person. Mr. McCain, you WILL be replaced. Many of the people that you insulted and refused to apologize to from the TEA Party, were split on your reelection in 2010 against J.D. Hayworth and that split allowed you to keep your job. That split won’t happen again now that we Main Street Americans clearly understand what you think of us. Christine has shown in recent weeks that she will NOT be attacked without retaliation anymore. CREW tried to smear her and they will now face criminal charges for their actions. Senator McCain did nothing illegal, but his statements were incendiary, ridiculous and called into question his belief in the voters of his own party.
