father is ´depressed´ about American politics

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Sen. John McCain’s daughter says that her father is “depressed” and “frustrated” with the impact the “hyper-conservative wing of the party” is having on national politics, including on the recent government shutdown. “We’re both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses,” Meghan McCain said in a joint interview with ABC and Yahoo News. Ms. McCain, who has her own reality show “Raising McCain,” said the last time she can remember her father was so depressed about the state of politics was after his failed 2008 presidential bid. “He is

Comments:
Why this vacuous twit is given airtime is beyond me. He´s not half as depressed as I am about the state of American politics, and he is one of the major reasons for it. Good. Grief. He needs to shut up and retire.

John McCain is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

If he is depressed, he should step down today and go enjoy a nice, peaceful retirement. That will make most of us feel a lot less depressed!!!

It is sad and embarrassing to see how irresponsible Cruz was and is willing to be again. The GOP used to be the adults - but now we have an adolescent wing that is willing to blow everything up if they don´t get their way. Or in other words they want freedom without responsibility.

Maybe someone who is depressed AND insane should be removed from the Senate before he comes in one day and and starts spraying his cohorts with a ..... oh, never mind.

Really, it is time for this loser to retire and shut his mouth!

Meghan McCain never got over not being the designated hot babe on her father´s campaign trail in ´08. Pure jealousy.

This latest statement is designed to align herself with her father, to constantly remind everyone who her father is, and who is her sole reason for being known at all.

Meghan, dear, that was a poor choice of words.

The masses? Do you mean citizens of the United States? The people who vote for their representatives and intend to elect people who actually represent their views?

Many of us are really frustrated by your father and others of his ilk.

Juan suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He suffered a concussion when his A-4 got blown up in the Forestall fire and hit his head again on the canopy of his aircraft when he ejected upon being shot down in flying the friendly skies of North Viet Nam. Evidence is his beliefs that actually abiding by the Constitution is being hyper-conservative. Take your meds Juan, they can help with the depression. Wonder why you lost Juan? Because you are not a true Constitutional Conservative, that´s why. Depressing isn´t it.

# 15 Amen.
The childish name calling is the main activity of the far right.
This thread is a perfect example.
Ted Cruz should have listened to McCain and the others who told him a shutdown , without the required Democrat
support , would be a fool´s errand and hurt all Republicans.
The Tea Party shutdown has had the predicted result
of ruining the favorability of the GOP and
endangering the possibility of retaking the Senate.
It may also endanger keeping the House.
The unintended consequence of the " Shut Er Down " crowd is that had they shown restraint
and used strategy rather than blind anger,
Republicans would now own
the delay Obamacare movement.
Instead, the Democrats are going to be the ones who get credit for delaying Obamacare.
10 Senate Democrats are now calling for a delay which means a delay bill will now pass
the Democrat controlled Senate.
This was an unforgivable blunder by Ted Cruz and his allies.
Big Time .
Defunding was never going to happen without Democrat support , but, Cruz and the far right did nothing to gather Democrat allies.
They ridiculed any Republican or pundit
who suggested delay instead of defund.
All they had to do instead of the defunding shutdown was wait a couple of weeks for the implosion of Obamacare to begin and the public would have been with them.
It was the impending perfect storm , but, Cruz and DeMint and Limbaugh et al.
wouldn´t listen.
Delaying Obamacare had great potential and the Democrats have now seized the winning issue and are going to run with it.
Leaving Republicans with nothing but
shutdown egg all over their face.
Unforgivable.

John McCain was a spoiled "Brass Brat", son and grandson of US Navy Admirals who graduated at the bottom of his class at the US Naval Academy, became a ty animal and a lousy Pilot. The only reason he ever attained public office is that he was actually made a great prisoner of war. I respect his courage as a prisoner but as a US Senator, he depresses me as does his parrot from South Carolina. At least I will get to vote against his parrot.

#15 & #33, you need to put down the NYT and stop listening to establishment hacks. What Cruz, et al. accomplished is to "awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." I´ll admit that I was so depressed by the state of things in Washington that I had almost stopped caring anymore. I had planned to just do as I´ve always done and vote for the least offensive candidate the next time, as usual. No more. I have informed my Senator and Rep who caved on the debt ceiling that I am done with them. I have contacted the other Senator who held firm and pledged my full support in the next election. I will be using every inch of my 75+ feet of highway frontage for signs for the other two´ opponents the next time around, and I´ll be using some of my savings account to locate and support good truly conservative candidates around the country. I´m tired of being quiet and just hoping for the best. So if Cruz and friends accomplished nothing else, they lit a fire under this Kansas wife and mom. And I know I´m not the only one.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb. Stokes, a legend in the civil-rights history of Ohio´s populous

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
