Not a fan of Mccain but hope for a recovery. At least this might finally convince him to end his political career. (hopefully that didn't come off bad).

The man is a true American hero and patriot, but the last 6-8 months he has been off the rail a little bit. I do wish him the best and hope for a swift and complete recovery.

It did t come off bad. Now what ima 'bout to say likely will.....

Deep down, this makes me long for an epidemic of brain cancer in congress. It might help explain the bs for the past 2 decade AND we might could start with a clean slate.

But I do hope he recovers (& retires, then we all win)

A couple weeks back, it was commented on this forum that McCain was "slipping" due to incoherence during testimony. I suppose we now know why. While his Senatorial stint has been deplorable, his military service is truly heroic and rightly deserves our admiration. For that, I wish him a full recovery. That being said, things happen for a reason and it is time to hang up the cleats...

Kind of hard for me to muster anything good to say about the man but I wouldn't wish this on anyone or their family. Prayers for their family in this difficult time. He is 80 so its not as if he hasn't had a good run at it.

My high school english teacher in AZ registered me to vote prior to my eighteenth birthday for the coming November election which I would be legally able to vote in as an 18 year old. That was in 91. I choose the gop party at the time. The swamp donkey McCain helped me decide to abandon that party registration in 08 and become an independent.

I'm sorry but McCain needs to hang up his cleats.
He already knew thathe wasn't for a full repeal on Monday so why even vote to have the Senate debates?

Oh yeah, he's mentally not all there and he wanted to extend his job's life.

He did that as a fake move to wring more from his lobbyists pockets.

This whole thing is like an episode of Benny Hill

Sometimes referred to as the Canary of Hanoi.
He had it rougher than anyone can ever imagine and I am sure the NVA broke him with torture. He may not have even knew what he was saying at the time.
He was a prize for the North once they knew who they had and they worked it to the max.

As for his senate record, he was taken prisoner by the establishment years ago and has again failed his country by being captured in DC.

I was pleased to see the news of McCain's no vote. Also happy to see -

- Senator Murkowski show Zinke she won't be pushed around
- The public apology from the BSA for Trump's speech
- The response from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to Trump's pathetic transgender tweet
- Senator Graham's warning to Trump about AG Sessions and Mueller

Great day for Team Centrist.

Meanwhile, Scaramucci has been on the payroll barely a week and has already gone postal. He should fit right in at Trumpville.

Remember when the GOP used to be the party of Family Values and the dems were the potty mouthed homosexual drug abusers?
Seems like they are both one in the same now.

These days, it seems "centrist" means "willing to "compromise". Policy wise, Trump is as close to a centrist as we could hope for in this age of polarization. If people would use their minds instead of their emotions, they would see that.

Vermin is a troll. I have asked him numerous times to state a specific policy that he endorses and he refuses to do so. He is incapable of conversation and is no "centrist". He is an agnostic, Conservative hating puddle of bloody urine. Don't waste your time.

Tell us how you really feel....no really I agree. Being a newbie of sorts I do a lot more reading than replying. I feel the same about vermin and texansfan. Figure they must have such meaningless lives that they troll on here for their jollies or to get each other's jollies off, who knows.

McCain is a snake. Always has been. This country and each of us need to elect the oldest person on the ballot from now on. That way we only get screwed by that person for so long until they die because we are getting from both sides. At least with the Dems I expect it. That's the only term limits we will ever have in our system.

This. People seem to forget that he won the nomination, then just practically rolled over and let Obama waltz in.
