By The Right Scoop


I’m not a huge Rand Paul fan in terms of foreign policy and there are plenty of other Republicans I’d vote for over him. However, Rand Paul vs Hillary Clinton is not a tough choice, not in the least. For John McCain to suggest such a thing just shows what a disaster of a politician he really is:

YAHOO NEWS – In the wide-ranging question-and-answer session, McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, fiercely defended his choice of Sarah Palin to be his running mate, affirmed that President Barack Obama has grown in office, and criticized the Pentagon’s obvious reluctance to get more involved in Syria’s civil war.

So who would he vote for in 2016 if it came down to Kentucky’s junior Republican senator and the Democratic former secretary of state?

“It’s gonna be a tough choice,” McCain told the magazine with a laugh.

“Let me just clarify that,” McCain added quickly. “I think that Rand Paul represents a segment of the GOP, just like his father. And I think he is trying to expand that, intelligently, to make it larger.”

    They are old bitter jealous men who know there time has passed but still want to hold on to the little power they have. Pathetic.
    They would rather be fed scraps instead of making their own.

    • Longiron

      MaroonRepublic Problem is they effect the whole country not just their states ????

    • PNWShan

      MaroonRepublic There’s also the club that he’s belonged to for umpteen years. See, he’s had lunch and gone to parties with Hilary for years, as well as his good buddy Schumer, etc., but he hasn’t been socializing with Rand Paul for years. Rand Paul is not one of the club guys. McCain sold his soul to get into the rich guys’ club and he resents anyone else who won’t.

      • Amjean

        I believe McCain sold his soul initially when he divorced his first wife to marry his rich second wife so he could run for congress.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    I know I sound like a broken record, but the only reason I voted for McCain in 2008 was because of Sarah Palin!

  • notpilgrims

    He’s probably referring to the fact that Hillary has a, you know, pro-American foreign policy. She wouldn’t be opposed to killing terrorists, even if she has to use a drone. She wouldn’t be opposed to giving foreign aid to allies such as Israel.
    In a Paul vs. Clinton election, someone running against Clinton might want to–I don’t know–not gather intelligence on terrorists, not kill terrorists with drones, and not put troops in foreign countries–such as European countries or Korean countries–where they can serve our interests and defend us.

    • badbadlibs

          You’re absolutely correct. He/she thinks he’s so sly, after all, he/she thinks he’s dealing with a bunch of country bumpkins too unsophisticated to see thru his snide remarks.

    • Conservator1

      notpilgrims Unlike McCain, it’s an easy decision for me – Rand Paul. How can McCain say this is a tough call when SOS Clinton was directly involved in the Benghazi cover-up?
      “Sen. John McCain on Sunday called the White House’s handling of the Sept. 11 attack on the Benghazi consulate in Libya a “cover-up,” saying a joint select congressional committee should be appointed to investigate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should testify again.
      “I’d call it a cover-up in the extent that there was willful removal of information which was obvious,” the Arizona Republican said on ABC’s “This Week.”
      http://www.politico.com/blogs/politico-live/2013/05/mccain-calls-benghazi-a-cover-up-163756.html
      What makes McCain’s comment even more revolting is that he stated it in an interview by a leftist at  http://www.newrepublic.com/authors/isaac-chotiner.
      I am livid about these phony conservatives that are attempting to undo everything Ronald Reagan accomplished. The RINOs have turned me into a Tea Party conservative who won’t support them any longer.

      Money Quote:  “In March 2008, as Hillary Clinton was running for president, Jerry Zeifman — the chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee at the time of Nixon’s impeachment and a lifelong Democrat — expressed his profound disappointment with her work on the committee. Among her transgressions were lying, removing files from the committee offices without permission, and arguing that Nixon shouldn’t be allowed any legal counsel before the committee. “I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff,” he told me. “My only regret was I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations. I could not recommend her for any subsequent position of public or private trust.”

  • njmom

    Rand vs Hillary would be a tough choice for McCain eh? Kinda like the one we faced in 2008 when he was running for president; to vote for him or stay home. If it hadn’t been for McCain choosing Sarah Palin I would’ve stayed home.

  • BevWKY

    This is why when people say that the best path is to change the GOP from within, I ask why. Why should anyone WANT to be part of a political party that doesn’t even represent what they believe in in the first place, much less what’s the point in trying to change from within something that obviously doesn’t want to “represent” one’s beliefs?
    They, whoever they are, either believe like the “other guys” or they cave anyway. Seriously. That’s not something I want to be part of any more.

  • Dejonn

    Arizona, it is time to put this mccain person out of the USA’s misery.  He is a despicable person.  He is a LIAR and he is an enemy of the STATE.  Eliminate him at your earliest t convenience.  Thank you.

    Rand Paul vs Hillary Clinton would be a tough choice?
    …only for Rino’s

  • JimLand

    I liked a lot of things about Ron Paul and was hoping he would get elected.  He was better than anyone on the Republican side by a wide margin last time.  However, it was painfully clear that he was never ready for primetime.  Rand on the other hand could be VERY VERY good.

  • Nukeman

    “Let me just clarify that,” McCain added quickly. “I think that Rand
    Paul represents a segment of the GOP, just like his father. And I think
    he is trying to expand that, intelligently, to make it larger.” — McCain
    Just exactly how does THAT clarify that it would be a tough choice for him whether to vote for Rand Paul or Hillary Clinton??? 
    You want a tough choice? I’ll give you a tough choice, John. How about the choice between getting rid of you or your idiot spawn, “Emoticon Meggie”? 
    Now there’s a tough choice for ya.

  • Rshill7

    I like Rand Paul. McCain’s a wacko bird turd. If something ever happened to him a wacko bird could simply crap another one just like him, and Mrs O’ could fertilize her garden with it, er, him.

  • Desjardins

    Thanks Sarah Palin, JD Hayworth would have been a disaster, right?

    • K-Bob

      Desjardins He wasn’t much better.  Why couldn’t a conservative run instead of those two guys?

  • Amjean

    I am a HUGE fan of Rand Paul, in particular because of his common sense foreign policy.  We do not need to be spending money on ten year wars, fighter jets to Egypt, arms to Syria, sending billions of dollars in aid to countries who hate us and support jihad against us.
    And what I really like is that Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and perhaps Sarah Palin usually all agree with one another’s positions.

    • VIRUSX2K1

      Common sense like supporting Hagel and Kerry?

      • Laurel A

        VIRUSX2K1 Or amnesty?

        • Amjean

          Rand Paul did not support amnesty; he supports illegals getting work visas I believe, then getting in the back of the line behind those that are already in line to become citizens of this country.

        • Laurel A

          Amjean He voted for amnesty. Period. Pure and simple. All of the hair splitting in the world won’t change that.

        • Amjean

          Go to his website and view/read his opinion on the subject.

        • Laurel A

          Amjean I don’t need to. I know his vote. he doesn’t get to caveat it after the fact because the vote is what it is. You are being dishonest. He can say what he wants all he wants but the bottom line is his vote doesn’t amount to his view. HE VOTED FOR AMNESTY. GET IT IN YOUR HEAD.

        • Amjean

          You are stuck on the word, “amnesty”.  Apparently, that is your buzz word in order to criticize Rand Paul.  Okay, I get it.

        • Laurel A

          Amjean No I’m stuck on facts and truth. You are stuck on Rand Paul and can’t possibly see that you are wrong. That makes you a weak individual. 

          HE VOTED FOR AMNESTY. ACCEPT IT.

      • Amjean

        Rand Paul did not support them; he supported the president’s right to appoint them.

        • Laurel A

          Amjean You would make a great politician with that kind of double speak.

        • Amjean

          I actually read the record and watch the videos of politicians before I support them.  I must admit I was fooled by Rubio, tho.

        • VIRUSX2K1

          That’s called “spin”, and I don’t get dizzy that easily. Other senators voted to oppose the nomination of a Jew hater and outspoken critic of his own country to the office of Secretary of Defense. Other senators also voted against the nomination of a left wing America hater that threw away the medals he really didn’t earn, and became good friends with Jane Fonda and left wing domestic terrorists for the office of Secretary of State. Rand Paul chose not to stand with people that actually had the country’s best interests in mind, and opted against playing politics.

        • Laurel A

          Amjean I read it too.  And I know how he voted. Like I said all of the after market caveats in the world doesn’t change the end result or net effect of his vote.

          There is a reason libertarian is Liberal-tarian.

        • Laurel A

          VIRUSX2K1 And he isn’t very good at it.

    • Laurel A

      Amjean I understand what you are saying but there is more to giving aid then as simple as you and Rand like to put it. I would make them work for that aid, and in some cases we do, and some we don’t’. For example we give aid to Egypt to protect Israel.

      I am for reexamining aid but not isolationism by any stretch. I am also all for war…when it is necessary and fought like a war. Sticking one’s head in the sand like an ostrich doesn’t solve anything. Learn the lessons of every war since Korea. Kinder gentler wars don’t work but that doesn’t mean war isn’t the answer either since it has solved a lot of problems throughout history. The despots of the world would dearly love us to become isolationists.

      • Amjean

        Our country is crumbling and we are giving money we borrow from China, etc. to foreign countries?

        • Laurel A

          Amjean Borrowing money is a separate problem unto itself. You can give aid without borrowing. This country borrows money because it doesn’t want to face it’s entitlement monster. Aid compares out to .00000000001% of entitlements. A war defending Israel would cost far more in lives and money.

        • Amjean

          So, we take the billion dollars out of taxpayer funds to give to Egypt; then we borrow a billion dollars from China to pay our other domestic bills. I guess if you look at it that way, it could be
          “separate”.

  • VIRUSX2K1

    And who does McCain want to touch?

    • Amjean

      You KNOW the answer to your question!!!!

      • VIRUSX2K1

        Paul.

        • Amjean

          never mind, my response intent was slightly perverted, that is why I responded the way I did…I couldn’t post what I meant….I wanted you to read between the lines….my attempt at humor failed badly!  LOL

    WOW! What a traitor John McCain is. Hillary is just as much the Marxist as Obama is and to even equate Rand Paul with that shemarxist is insulting to Rand Paul. Hillary Clinton is a freak’n Marxist. Remember she wrote her 1969 Thesis on Saul Alinsky. If McCain is even wondering about this then he is a traitor and wants to destroy America otherwise let’s not make Rand Paul a candidate and ensure that Ted Cruz is the candidate.

    If Rand is trying intelligently to expand his segment of the GOP, that leaves you out, mccain.

  • JimCohen

  • RichardDeanMacLean

    I think you mean “TOUGH CHOICE”. (freak’n autocorrect sucks sometimes)

  • Nukeman

    McCain’s idiot daughter once said she was a “new Republican” and we all laughed at her because she has nothing but progressive democratic thoughts (and I use that term “thoughts” loosely). I guess she was right after all. Along with her father and all the RINO/Progressive/Democrat-leaning Republicans, they ARE the new Republicans — and the majority of US are voting third party. 
    Bring it on, I say. Let’s sweep the McCains, the Grahams, and the rest of the corrupt, progressive Congress into the nearest ocean. It’s time to start new – either through elections or by dumping their tea into the harbor.

    • Conservator1

      Nukeman I guess that’s why McCain choose to make his comment about Hillary and Rand in an interview with Isaac Chotiner of The New Republic which is one of the most far left-wing rag in news.

        Pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?

  • Laurel A

    I know Rand’s foreign policy stance. I know he likes Obama’s appointees. I know his amnesty vote. What’s his vote of drug legalization and homosexual marriage? The only thing he has going for him is he is fiscally responsible…maybe…that’s a big maybe.

    The choice is a choice of staying home quite frankly.

    • RRosen

      Laurel A Mike Lee and Rand Paul are rated 1 and 2 in fiscal conservatism in the Senate. And, oh yeah, that is going back to 1930.  I think Rand Paul passes as a fiscal conservative.

      • Laurel A

        RRosen Laurel A So? Depends on how those numbers are tabulated. You didn’t really think I was going to fall for that did you? Being a social liberal costs society a lot of money especially since it was liberaltarians that went along with classifying addiction as a ‘disease’. Drug rehab isn’t cheap nor free let alone the numerous problems that go with it like foster programs and various others ‘help me’ programs that go with that kind of dysfunction.

        Amnesty isn’t by any measure fiscally conservative either when one crunches the numbers just with Obamacare alone.Then we have environmental drains like roads and bridges, water consumption, waste. We have education. We have entitlements in general like SS, Medicare, Welfare programs, and a never ending list. We have overall wear and tear. I ahve barely scraped or touched the surface of what amnesty costs.
        Sorry but you can’t possibly call yourself a fiscal conservative and vote for amnesty.

        • RRosen

          Laurel A RRosenName one right wing economist who is against drug legalization. Just one will do.
          Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Milton Friedman, George Shultz,  Jeff Miron,  and Gary Becker all say the costs of  prohibition far outweigh the negative consequences of legalization.

        • Laurel A

          RRosen Laurel A Here again…So? All of those economists caveat their being against legalization provided social programs are dumped. You want to legalize drugs dump entitlements first then get back to me. After that the assignment would be zero tolerance for crimes committed under the influence.

          And since I hold a post grad degree in economics you can count me as one. And there are more economists than that list that are just as educated and opinionated but not celebrity that are against legalization. I like the cherry picking you did though. It didn’t escape me. Really it’s atypical.

          Now explain how it is laughable since societal breakdown costs money. Law enforcement alone is not cheap. Then let’s get back to the example you simply cannot refute so you moved the goal posts like a good liberaltarian and that is amnesty. Please explain in detail how that is fiscally responsible.

        • RRosen

          Laurel A RRosen Not one of those economists says eliminating the welfare state is a precondition to legalizing drugs. Not one. I “cherry picked” from economists who have talked about the drug issue. 
          Given your economic illiteracy on immigration, I don’t for a second believe you any economics education from a decent school.

        • Laurel A

          RRosen Laurel A Spoken like a true Liberaltarian moving the goal posts once again. Yes they did in numerous books, articles, symposiums. You suffer from hearing only what you want to hear. Drug enforcement costs money. There is no denying that. However to say legalization costs no money is flat absurd. Your list of economists disagree with you on that. Societal breakdown always costs money. That is how we got entitlements to begin with.

          I graduated from Stanford in the 80’s. Denying my degree doesn’t put anymore truth or correct information into your post. It makes you sound quite petty and childish actually.

          Now explain how I am economically incorrect or illiterate on amnesty. Please go into great detail. I’m sure everyone at RS would like to hear your dissertation and thesis on this. Please explain how immigrants illegal or otherwise don’t use any of the resources, man made or natural, when they come to this country.  Use your list of cherry picked economists to back you up. Oh wait…most aren’t for amnesty. some are dead. Schultz is pretty long in the tooth but my family is friends with him so I will ask next time I see him. I know he wasn’t all that pleased with the last one but that was due to Democrat shenanigans not amnesty itself. He is a moderate though and has gotten more liberal with age and being a resident of SF. His wife has worked for the city for years. So there is a chance he might side with you…so that’s one.

        • jsallensmith

          Laurel A RRosen Just for the sake of the argument. Would legalization of drugs pretty much render gangs that are ravaging our inner cities moot?

        • Laurel A

          jsallensmith Laurel A RRosen No it wouldn’t. Gang members are not law abiding upstanding citizens to begin with. They will do all they can to undercut any legitimate market with a black market like they do with legal drugs currently. Saying legalization would eliminate gangs is pseudo intellectualism. Did Prohibition end the mob?

          There a few things that would end gangs. Seal the border. Force assimilation. Zero tolerance.

  • froggy19510

    I think I have this figured out. McCain isn’t crazy he is just does what his handlers in Beijing tell him to do.
    I think he was turned  when he was at the Hanoi Hilton.

  • mikeinidaho

    Of course it wouldn’t be a tough choice…for that fatazz RINO! He’ll vote for Shrillary no matter who the RINO is that runs against her. Hey McAmnesty, thanks for your military service, now SIT DOWN SHUT UP AND GO AWAY. You are a disgrace.

  • rayc225581

    Clinton
    filled the bureaucracy with dem. operatives (think Louis lerner). Bush did very
    little to purge these people. They leaked info to embarrass him. You know Obama
    has doubled down on this strategy. I’ve
    come to believe that the next President must not only reduce the size of
    government but purge it. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Sarah Palin are the only
    potential candidates who would do this. To me everything else is secondary.

    • VIRUSX2K1

      No, secondary is a civilian that for either reasons of cowardice, politics, or having “other/better things to do”, fled from militarily serving this country. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for example chased dollar signs as awyers. I agree with Lieutenant Colonel West: civilians really shouldn’t be sending military personnel in to places where they can lose their lives. Civilians don’t fully understand the meaning of life and death, or the value of life. I think we should only have presidents, from now on, that are Veterans, like West or North, and West has proven himself time and again to be a Real Conservative.

          Yeah, and look what your businessmen gave us. The Great Depression (Hoover), and social medicine (Romney). None worthy to commit people to deadly tasks, because they don’t know the value of life, luke they claim to kniw the value of a dollar.

        When I still had grey-free hair, I would have argued strongly against what you are saying. Now I’ve watched barack send men to die with no intention of winning a d*mn thing.  I thought we were done with that in Vietnam.
        Generals aren’t necessarily the best because they’re all politicians, but a guy like Col. West is what we need right fraking now. I’d work for his campaign and send him all the money I could if he’d run.
        Just seeing him on the same stage with the other wannabbes would wake this country the hell up.

    McCain is a heck of a lot more like Hillary than Rand Paul is.  At least Rand Paul isn’t liberal….McCain is.

    I’m so sick of Republicans, and i’m not talking about the politicians either.  I’m talking about the electorate.  To think they made McCain the nominee for President, says a lot about Republican voters.  They are just as ignorant as democrat voters.  Bush 1 & 2, McCain, and Romney.  Repubs have had so many choices to nominate a sound conservative and always blow it.  It’s time for more independents to rise up and more people to ditch the Republican party.

    McCain, you are a disgrace.

  • poptoy1949

    Not for McCain…..he would vote for Dear Hillary just like his daughter would.

  • SheerPolitics

    RS…your title says it would be a “TOUCH choice”. I thought for a minute Sen McCain was getting frisky! :-D

    Please.  wWhy would anyone pay any attention to mcLAME?
    Hasn’t everyone on this site had enough of him and his pal Lindseyboy?

    This old man has got to go.. His RINO ways are wearing very thin on all of us..

  • Charm4sure

    So it is looking like we are going to have to put up with a McCain who doesn’t give a rat’s a$$ what he does just whatever pops into his….., to use his term, …”wacko” brain. He is also sounding meaner more often than usual lately. He will probably live to 100 and still be in the Senate.  Please AZ, spare us this fate. Certainly you must have someone better. It has become increasingly clear why Meghan McCain is like she is.

    What a “Wackobird”. He is an extremely extreme extremist. He is the godfather of the Taliban wing of the GOPe.  With his extremist positions, he is not even in the game.  How can he negotiate from such an extremely extreme extremist position.  Realistically, how does anyone take such an ultra-extremist seriously.

    McCain is another example of many of why term limits are needed.

  • arizonagolfer

    My handle might be “arizonagolfer” but I’m sure glad one of my my state senators is Ted Cruz and not this guy McCain or the other one in Arizona, Flake. And yes I’m pretty disappointed in John Cornyn in Texas too…I’ll vote for any true conservative in a primary against him.

  • physicsnut

    Why does McCain remind me of Dennis The Menace ?

  • margar

    McCain?  He was a tough choice.  There are many in congress who need to be voted out. The old dogs just want to stay in there but their fight is gone. Bring on the new dogs, young aggressive conservatives.

  • sdharms

    the GOP has expected the voters to vote GOP no matter who they put up — telling us that any Repub is better than voting Dem. But when asked the question, a GUY AT THE VERY TOP< WHO HAS BENEFITTED FROM THE “any Repub” propaganda, cant say he will vote for “any Repub”. This is the NAIL IN THE COFFIN for the GOP. THis is in your face to all of us who have backed their candy-ass candidates.  McCain just spit in MY FACE PERSONALLY. If I wasnt done before I am now, stick a fork in me.

  • Rep paul

    IF HITLER WAS RUNNING AGAINST CLINTON, I WOULD VOTE FOR HIM. PUTTING CLINTON IN THE WHITE HOUSE WOULD BE THE SECOND BIGGEST IN THE WORLD…SHE IS NOTHING MORE THSN A FEMALE OBAMA…WAKE UP AMERICA, IT IS JUST A NEW PLAN TO RUIN AMERICA…

    The Socialist Progressives are grooming Corey Booker, Kasim Reed, and Deval Patrick. Why are they consistently chosen to be on ABC Sunday giving their opinions? 
    Oprah the “King” maker has laid her scepter on the shoulder of Corey Booker…this weekend she is throwing him a huge fund raiser!

    Who really cares what this RINO votes for..it his last term.  He has displayed his true colors, now I don’t pay any attention to the broken down war hero.   Shame he fooled us in the past.
