And, above all, he doesn't feel any shame.

    But hey...enough about Obama unless you want to start a new thread about how lousy he is. What do you have to say about McCain?
    Had McCain not saddled himself with sarah the cult leader I would have voted for him. I think he does a decent job. He has to shake off the right wing looney birds and I would really like him.

    Re: John McCain Blames Tea Party For Government Shutdown

    McCain beat a well known former congressman who was a tea party darling in the last primary. Not just beat, but landslide beat down. McCain speaks the truth here, the tea party rabble have been detrimental to the party. Low information, angry folks who are only angry because their one source of news, talk radio tells them to be angry and whips them into a frenzy. Measured thinking, long term strategies and intelligent debate has been replaced by bumpersticker slogans. The party was warned, but they ran off the cliff anyway...

    In other words, you want him to be even more of a RINO than he already is. I don't share your sentiment.

    McCain has been called a RINO for decades. There is nothing sudden about it.

    Of course you would have. He's an old crook who swings with the political winds to survive to steal some more - just your type.

    Love to see the leftists rally around a fellow that just a few short years ago they were blasting as a crook and a liar. Hilarious!

    Well, I'm not a "leftist", I voted for McCain in the Senate primary and general election, and for president. But, don't let facts get in the way of things.

    No, he puts thought into what he does and he had to play the game for the right. If he had cut off the fundies I would be all for him.
