John McCain: ´Sometimes I do´ regret
voting for Rex Tillerson as secretary
of state

Washington Examiner, by Kyle Feldscher

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2017 4:29:07 PM

Arizona Sen. John McCain "sometimes" regrets his vote for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, especially in the wake of Tillerson floating the idea that the United States has been taking the wrong approach in Syria. McCain said on CBS Sunday said his vote in favor of Tillerson pains him on occasion, and comments Tillerson said made about the conflicting plans of the United States and Russia in Syria, which McCain saw as kowtowing to the Kremlin, are troubling. "Sometimes I do," McCain said when asked if he regrets voting for Tillerson. "But, I´m still torn by the fact that the American

That´s all right, I deeply, deeply regret ever voting for McCain, and if Sarah Palin had not been on his ticket, I probably wouldn´t have.

I suppose that voting for the Democrat in Arizona wouldn´t be much worse EXCEPT for putting Schumer in charge of the Senate. These are tough choices some times. We will try hard to take Flake out in 2018 but it won´t be easy. We have 2 good candidates in the primary to beat him, Kelly Ward, and Jeff Dewitt. We will need to get only 1 of them to run!!!

Although he was reelected last November and has five and a half years remaining in his Senate term, John "Keating Five" McCain has lost whatever sense he might have once had, and ought to resign his seat immediately. He´s well done. Baked. Senile.

In the long run, because of the intense electoral reaction last November to Obama´s crack-brained statecraft, his presidency--as harmful as it was--might have been preferable to McCain´s, which would have been Bush lite lite lite, harmful to the Right, further damaging our side by association with the principle free McCain. In a sense, McCain´s loss to Obama led us ultimately to Trump, who fights for America and her allies. So I´m glad McCain lost. He´s still a loser, and always will be. If he had one iota of self-awareness, he´d be on suicide watch.

Tillerson as head of an oil conglomerate has probably had more dealing with the power brokers in the Mid East than the entire top floor of our state dept. Trump recognized that when he appointed him. Folks like McCain spend their lives in the Washington bubble believing that all diplomacy originates there.

Can someone get a petition & get rid of McCain. He´s an extreme embarrassment to the country & party. Does anyone like him? His hatred & envy of Trump is sickening. Trump is getting the job done & McCain can´t handle it. Tillerson gets McCain straight every time he makes a stupid statement . I really believe the senate would be 100000% better without McCain.

When I was preparing to vote in 08, a friend asked me who I was voting for. I answered McCain. Because of Sarah and the fact that Obama was the Manchurian candidate, I had to vote for the crazy traitor.

Ultimately, the choice of McCain or Obama was no choice at all.

If it wasn´t for Sarah Palin that regret would´ve been much worse. I won´t rehash your conduct then but your conduct now speaks volumes about the kind of person you are. Having said that now would someone please do this old fool a favor and find a fellow RINO, a liberal politician or some idiot in the main stream media.

Not long ago, on a summer afternoon, I found myself in Las Vegas with nothing much to do. My flight back home wasn´t until the next day. The $20 I was willing to throw away on gambling didn´t last as long, so I needed something to do. Luckily, over the last decade or so, Las Vegas has become the machine gun capital of the world. A Mecca of hot lead unloaded at a blistering pace. There´s at least half a dozen places where you can rent some full-auto fun. There´s no other town I´m aware of that has more than

Yesterday, I saw Senator Coons, Democrat from Delaware say he couldn’t vote for the Graham Cassidy healthcare replacement bill because it didn’t have a clear definition of adequate and affordable for those with preexisting conditions. What a joke! The Affordable Care act (ACA) was an over 2,000 page bill (that most hadn’t read when they voted on it) with massive numbers of mandates and twenty new taxes and I don’t recall Democrats asking for definitions let alone on subjective terms like adequate and affordable.

Many members of the national media hate President Trump so much that they´ll even defend North Korea if it keeps them consistent in their opposition to everything he does. After Trump said at the United Nations General Assembly this week that the U.S. would crush the little Asian country should Kim Jong Un attack the U.S. or our allies, reporters and commentators reacted as if he had just threatened Switzerland on a whimsy. Trump had simply said that the U.S. "has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is growing in popularity on America’s political left-wing as the despot engages in a war of words with President Trump. Progressives have shown an increasing willingness to embrace the brutal dictator as a means of attacking Trump, and some in the media have given the brutal dictator friendly, celebrity-like coverage. Left-wing activists, meanwhile, are eagerly spreading pro-North Korea propaganda and making excuses for the dictator’s murderous activities. Un’s public attacks on Trump on Tuesday prompted praise for the dictator by some in the media. Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak fawned over Un in a column

The Obama Presidential Center planned for Jackson Park could be a shot in the arm for the South Side, bringing jobs, economic development and other benefits.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken about what life was like for her and her family during her eight years in The White House. Her candid comments came during a moderated discussion at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday evening. ´It´s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,´ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ´You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don´t know where your forks are.´ (Photos) Mrs Obama

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) tweeted that she hopes all NFL players kneel during the national anthem on Sunday in response to President Trump´s remarks attacking Colin Kaepernick. Edwards, who left Congress earlier this year, called Trump a "white supremacist who squats in our White House" in her tweet.

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself
