McCain stripped of his conservative title

Opinion: It’s been no secret John McCain has been a ‘never Trumper’ since before Donald Trump was elected. Trumps comment while on the campaign trail that McCain is “no Hero,” touched a nerve.  McCain’s ego leaves no room for what is good for the country. Like many small minded men with over-blown egos, McCain’s unable to think past himself…..WFM 

John McCain: Traitor to the conservative cause

By Ceryl Chumly, The washington Times, July 28, 2017


There are video clips floating about devoted entirely to showing the dramatic few seconds on the Senate floor when Sen. John McCain cast his no-vote to Obamacare repeal.

Pick one and watch it. They’re good visuals of what betrayal looks like. Title it: Traitor takes the stage.

Now some will no doubt call that ridiculous — that McCain, who cast the vote that denied Republicans in the Senatetheir seven-year dream of Obamacare repeal, can’t be guilty of betrayal because he’s not, and never has been, a GOPer. So how could be betray something he’s neverbeen part of or represented, right?


Well, there is that. There is that point. But it’s a potatoes-potahtoes argument.

The fact is, McCain still wears the Republican pin. And on that score, on Obamacare, he really showed his RINO roots, his leftist leanings.

This is how it played. Just feet from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, McCain stands, extends his arm. The chamber is silent. Suddenly, McCain cups his hand and with a quick flick, turns his thumb downward. Gasps echo and McConnell’s mouth draws tight. McCain lumbers back to his seat, and Obamacare repeal fails, 49-51.

Game over. Drama done. And now, hours after the fact, voters are left picking through the news, trying to discern the reasons Republicans ceded this battle to the Democrats.

Well, here’s a quick and simple thought.

What did McCain have to lose? What, politically speaking, did the Arizona senator known for his “maverick” ways of wheeling and dealing the Democratic cards, stand to lose by standing strong with his leftist friends, as he frequently does?

He’s got brain cancer. He’s not going to be in office much longer. He’s not going to seek re-election.

Now consider that against his potential wins. Fact is, McCain’s vote is no doubt a sigh of relief for him.

He can spend his dying days in open friendship with the Democrats he so loves.

No more hiding in the shadows. No more feigning Republican. No more pretending to support the conservative cause.

For McCain, his moment in the “No Obamacare Repeal” sun was freeing.

Conservatives, of course, have a different take.

For American voters expecting their Republican-dominated House, Senate and White House to honor their years of repeal promises and actually, well, repeal Obamacare, McCain’s thumbs-down was a face-slap moment that will be remembered in history as a textbook classic case of political betrayal. McCain may feel liberated. But his name will go down in conservative history books as a traitor to the cause.

  3. Thomas Hochschild Sr says:

    His life’s work has been put in the gutter because of his back stabbing the American people.

  4. Mike Floyd says:

    Knowing what I know, McCain is literally a walking dead man, unless God has a different opinion. Sometimes not always, I have seen evil men, say one who killed over 100 soldiers as he hot dogged in his jet, or the thousand or so morning family and friends who waited for remains of live Vietnam prisoners to returned home were left mourning , while McCain and Kerry held up funds, or the Vietnamese slaves employed in factories owned by Kerry and McCain, these heartless type men and women were left to live, but suffer at the hands of heartless care givers for days months years. Who knows!

  5. Pam Yoches says:

    Unfortunate that McCain is ending his career on such a negative note. He is more intent on getting Trump than doing what’s best for the American people. Sad!

  6. Mary Reynolds-Phillips says:

    He just doesn’t get it that he was used…..and that they are laughing at him, not with him…What a FOOL. “The one that follows the crowd, will usually go no further than the …crowd .
