Sorry, but I had to post this cheesey reminder of McCain’s temporary position on border security in 2010:

    Very disappointed that Rand Paul too did the dirty.  Was that all gas that he was spewing in the talk with Mark Levin a couple of days ago.  Politicians!!  You can’t trust a single anyone from that cursed lot.

    • Orangeone

      dodocanspell Paul has become quite a tool, another example of how closely Libertarians are to Liberals.

      • salty walty

        Orangeone dodocanspell I sure hope Ted Cruz does not change.

        • Orangeone

          salty walty Orangeone dodocanspell Ted Cruz was raised to RESPECT America, to cherish freedom unlike many others and his record shows that he protects and defends the Constitution. Paul is behaving like his daddy.

        Jim DeMint respects Libertarians and Ron Paul wheras Lindsey Graham hates Ron Paul with a passion and is paranoid about the influence that him and Libertarians have. 
        Tells a lot about which faction is closer to which. If it weren’t for libertarians, the right might still be stuck wishing for the ‘big government conservative’ Bush-era that McCain and Graham embody.

        • Orangeone

          Jim25 Orangeone dodocanspell Ron Paul is a nut case and his son is many eggs short of a dozen.
          If it weren’t for Libertarians lying about their party affiliation and taking their marbles home because they candidate wasn’t on the ticket, MN would have had Norm Coleman and the US would NOT have ObamaCare.
          You are full of it if you think Conservatives would be stuck wishing for the big gov’t McCain and Graham.  It was Conservatives across this nation that helped Ted Cruz get elected.  Libertartians (Liberal-Lites) pouted, stayed home and gave us Obama for another 4 years. Thanks for bankrupting the country.

        • Jim25

          Alan Keyes refused to vote for Romney too. He even said Romney might have been worse. Is he a liberal-lite? 
          A lot of conservatives say Romney lost because conservatives stayed home, because he’s a RINO you know. You may not agree with this action (I voted for Romney too), but that is what a lot of us say and there’s probably a lot of truth in that. When we run liberals, we lose.

          Al Franken won because of one thing: voter fraud and that’s it. He definitely didn’t play fair. The third place candidate was actually a liberal independent, NOT a libertarian. That split the liberal vote if anything. Also while Franken was clearly worse Coleman was pretty RINOish, so who’s to say that that didn’t cause some conservatives to stay home?

          Think about this: McCain and Graham embody the big govt Bush era run haywire. A lot of the right used to be asleep to the dangers posed by the Bush era. Some of the “conservative” sites tried to make excuses for his big government programs like Medicare Part D, No Child Left Behind, and the Patriot Act. We lost our way, and if we’re ever going to go back to small government we need to acknowledge that.

          The Paul family live rent-free in the heads of REAL liberals who pretend to be Republicans. That’s why McCain, Graham, Snowe, and Collins hate them so much.That’s documented they do that too.

        • Jim25

          Why should libertarians have the finger blamed at them for Romney’s loss when other conservatives, like us, brag that Romney lost because of his lack of conservatism so, they say, a lot of us conservatives stayed home?
          Why would it be bad for the Ron Paul folks, but justified by who Romney is if the rest of us did it?

  • CarolynDixon

    all need to be primaried

  • billma40

    You’re John McCain and we don’t approve of you> Go away.

  • Matt2Matt

    Makes you wonder what he was really telling the North Vietnamese…

  • Laurel A

    And we wonder why his daughter is such a tool…apple don’t fall far from the tree.

    • badbadlibs

      Laurel A What a choice we had back in 08….the ovomits or McCain and his vicious, vile daughter in the WH….his wife isn’t too bright either….

      • Orangeone

        badbadlibs Laurel A At least his wife and daughter resemble women….just sayin

        • Laurel A

          Orangeone badbadlibs Laurel A ROFLMAO!!!

        • Orangeone

          Laurel A Orangeone badbadlibs It’s been a while since I’ve posted something to giggle about, had to seize the opportunity.

      • Laurel A

        badbadlibs Laurel A I honestly and truly think things would not be any better with McCain as president or really any different either.

        • deTocqueville1

          Laurel A badbadlibs I tend to agree but I think with Palin as VP the energy policy would have been better. Otherwise McCain would have marginalized her.

        • badbadlibs

          Laurel A  The upside of that would be that we had Sarah Palin as VP instead of spit for brains.

        • Laurel A

          badbadlibs Laurel A Yes but being [permanently attached to McCain would of forever ruined her.

        • Laurel A

          deTocqueville1 Laurel A badbadlibs He would of marginalized her anyway. His wife and daughter didn’t care for her and he picked her as a political ploy…nothing more. It was all about getting elected, never about conservatism or even the party platform.

        • Jim25

          Laurel A badbadlibs 
          I’m not trying to be morbid, but how long do you think he would’ve lasted?
          “An old heartbeat away from the Presidency”, liberals said.

        • Laurel A

          Jim25 Laurel A badbadlibs He seems to be holding up just fine.

        • Jim25

          Laurel A Jim25 badbadlibs  
          The position would’ve put extra stress on him, like it did Bush. His lifespan would’ve been shorter.

        • Laurel A

          Jim25 Laurel A badbadlibs Unless you are omniscient suddenly you cannot guarantee that with any certainty.

        • Jim25

          Laurel A badbadlibs 
          McCain would have basically been Bush’s third term. Liberals were actually right on that one talking point, and lucky the GOP picked the person they could use that on easiest. Only differences between them I can see are that McCain’s more of a bully wheras Bush is nice to most people, he’s more militaristic, more reckless and shifts with the wind on things more.

          From amnesty to “spreading democracy” to bailouts to selling out civil liberties, McCain and Graham are the embodiment of what was falsely considered “conservative” back in the Bush era.
          Rove, for example, is just supporting what he always has.

        • Laurel A

          Jim25 Laurel A badbadlibs Jim I agree with all of that. I said before it really wouldn’t of been no different with McCain than Obama but you simply cannot say with any certainty that he would died in office. No one can.

  • JeffWRidge

    Not to worry, in 2016 McCain will move back to the right and be on our side again. Once more he will be talking tough about border security, cutting spending and so forth, at least until the election is over and he doesn’t need the votes.

  • Orangeone

    Thanks Scoop.  Clearly it was campaign time.

  • deTocqueville1

    Cheesey but an excellent reminder.

  • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

    Here’s a good laugh to share with ‘both sides.”   http://www.lolwall.co/lol/268662

  • froggy19510

    McCain Then: Ya fickth da fenth cauth da mexacanz is gunna get uth. Now: never mind the fence until we have 22 million more democrat voters I can side with.
    After the amnesty bill gets passed I think we are going to have a giant fence on the border (on the Mexican side) to make sure they don’t go back to Mexaco.

    • Jim25

      It’s Graham who’ll have a creepy lisp. McCain’s a senile old man.

      • froggy19510

        Jim25 froggy19510 They are both creepy old men.

        • Jim25

          froggy19510 Jim25  
          They are. The way I saw it Graham lisps and McCain always says “my friends”.


    Sweet!   ((:
    what time is ice cream?

  • stage9

    And then he wonders why he was soundly rejected by the voters.

  • Jim25

    Senile, flip-flopping old fool.
    You think he’ll be around for another term? Probably not.

  • DanaZZGarcia

    McCain was for border security when he was running for re-election, that’s the only reason.

  • salty walty

    McCain is in for the money. Very simple.

  • jamesbotts16309

    This is a prime example of why GOP voters are part of the problem. In 2007 McCain tried to ram amnesty through and in 2010 voters decided to believe him when he said, “complete the dang fence”
    Yes, J.D. Hayworth was a complete putz, and yet a big time message could have been sent to the GOP establishment that if you cross the base you loose. But when you sent McCain back Arizona all you did was signal to McCain and many other Republicans that yes, you can dump on the base and survive.
    Folks, I don’t care if you have never heard of the other name on the ballot in a GOP primary. VOTE OUT THE INCUMBENT!

  • Pancake3

    John McCain’s love affair with cameras, microphones and newspapers is stuff of legend.  Like Bill Clinton, he says what he thinks the audience wants at that instant.  And it stands as truth just about as long.

  • Jim25

    Agenda for conservatives:

    Objective 1: Don’t let amnesty pass the House. If the illegal aliens are legalized, we permanently have more Democratic voters.
    Objective 2: Defeat vulnerable Marxist Democrats in the 2014 Senate elections like bribe-taking Mary Landreiu, Kay Hagan, and Mark Begich, and primary their friends on the other side of the aisle, the RINOs like Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, and Lamar Alexander.
    Objective 3: Defeat Rubio before he can get the GOP nomination. Defeat him with a conservative, not another RINO like Ryan or Christie.
    Objective 4: Defeat Hillary Clinton. Haunt her with the people she killed in Benghazi. If we get somebody who’s new blood instead of representing the party’s past, they could actually beat this hag.

  • PVG

    Tweeted this link to McCain……….I’m sure he doesn’t give a dang.

  • clubgitmo

    john McCain is without a doubt the biggest fraud in politics and that is saying something. In 2007 he was all for amnesty until the public burned up the phones lines to Washington and let their voices be heard. When he last ran vs JD Hayworth, McCain was the biggest opponent to illegal immigration. Now back to amnesty. he’s a liar, a fraud and a worthless politician.

  • snowshooze

    John McCain has been bought and sold like a slab of meat ti the Military Industrial Complex. 
      If he can sell a gun, mine or bomb, plane, tank… whatever…
      He get’s paid again.

    • Jim25

      And yet…this hypocrite, like Obama supports intrusive background checks on US citizens. But he arms Syrian terrorists.

  • poptoy1949

    I like the Sheriff but what in the world is he doing with this sellout????????????

    • Jim25

      He was easily duped by McCain of all people.

  • JimCohen

    I bet that sheriff feels like a fool. How come I knew better…but he didn’t?

  • Dukehoopsfan

    Senator, you’re not one of us!

  • Jill Parish

    It’s a d,,, shame that DC can’t even get the fence completed.  Makes you wonder just how far up the “food” chain the cartel money is going.  Seems really strange that the government wants to take our guns, sneak a biometric national ID card in the immigration bill but won’t complete the fence or otherwise secure our border.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    I voted for Palin. She would have won too, except for that old fart.

  • 07gibsonlp

    McCain is as big of a fraud as Obama is.  He will shape-shift into whatever he needs to be to kiss the right asses at the moment. He is a disgusting, vile old man.  I have just one questions; why don’t these old, decrepit, useless, corrupt politicians ever die? Good God, it’s like the death rate of politicians is a fraction of that of the general population. Do they have some kind of life-extending drug that they don’t share with the rest of the world?
    Ever notice politicians seldom get cancer?  McCain had melanoma but that’s common and almost always curable with a 100% survival rate. The only prominent politician in modern times I’ve known to get cancer was Ted Kennedy.  He must have pissed somebody off and they refused to give him the meds.  How do guys like Strom Thruman and Robert Byrd live to be 150 years old? Byrd was shitting himself and drooling while he was still in office. The guy didn’t have the wherewithal to wipe his own ass yet he was voting on policy.

    • Jim25

      Ted Kennedy piss somebody up there off?  No way. Just taxpayers and Mary Jo’s family.  
      I assume you know better than that.
      Another one who got cancer was Arlen Specter.
