“SHAME ON HIM!” Mark Levin SLAMS John McCain as a ‘useful idiot for the Democrats’

Mark Levin hammered John McCain for being unwilling to engage Ted Cruz while he was on the floor for 21 hours, only to wait for him to finish to attack Cruz. Levin called McCain a ‘complete useful idiot for the Democrats’ and said he’s a pathetic Senator. And more…

John McCain may have been a great “war hero,” but he is not a decent American. He was elected to fight for his constituents. Instead, he sells them down the river along with the rest of Americans who counted on him to stand strong. A hero stands strong. McCain does not know how to do that. It is more important to him to be a Senator than it is for him to stand up against tyranny. Pathetic.

Amen, HG. I recall his 2010 re-election campaign ad that had him walking along the border (supposedly) saying “We need to build the damn fence!”

He is a progressive Republican which translates to a socialist in a business suit.

I loathe the man, military record aside. For the damage he has done as US Senator, America would be better off if he’d have spent 40 years in the Hanoi Hilton…

McCain, Graham, McConnell, Cornyn, etal. have been more actively involved in self-aggrandizing political play than in defending The People’s interest.
The RINOS in Congress therefore, are beneath contempt and most deserving of the derision that they now suffer. McCain’s 2010 leverage of the Military Spending Bill vs. Obamacare and his condemnation of similar tactics 3 years later vividly illustrate McCain’s (and his fellow traveler’s) moral bankruptcy.

Lets keep our composure in this time of contention. I agree wholeheartly that we need new representatives that represent the values of americas people but to degraded them and make belitteling verbal jabs only brings us down to these peoples level. The best we can hope for is convincing the moderate americans that we stand for a better america. Keep up the fight i know i will.

M Levin is so right – what is so disappointing and eye opening – McCain’s words and deeds leading up to 2008 and before he sold out when he stopped his campaign to OK the Bailout – basically are being viewed as what he needed to do to get the Repub nomination – but they were fake and lies – what he is doing now is contrary to what he promised his voters to get reelected and he needs to resign – he is an Obama tool and he is becoming a shell of his previous self

McLame has already revealed his hostility to the Constitution, and his affinity for propping up the progressive democrats agenda of subverting the Constitution and our rights.

McLame was praised for his cooperation w/the radical Russ Feingold in passing campaign finance reform. Too bad the act of cooperation was judged to be of more value than allegiance to the Constitution. The finance reform act absolutely trampled our freedom of speech, actually forbidding certain groups to be involved in political speech.

I’m sick of the RINO’s who strut around the senate, cooperate with the marxist democrats and work together to subvert our rights and rob us of our money via forced taxation.

In you read this just so you know, this morning Reid And McCain both have been called an scolded for their despicable verbal abuses of fellow senators and the American people. “End of message”

They both should be hauled off in cuffs and incarcerated for their abuse of power and for aiding and abetting terrorist, of course for that to happen, first E. Holder would need to be carried away.

The Great One is spot on, as always, and I’m glad he’s able to provide a counter to the MSM.
May I also suggest that the meme “McCain is a great war hero” be retired now.
There have been other wars now, and I suggest those veterans from the Gulf wars and from Afghanistan are at least as great heros as McCain.
IIRC, isn’t there at least one vet sitting in the House?

I would like to have a word or two with hero Johnny or anyone else for that matter that backs this scam. I have no family, own a business, carry my own private policy with Anthem BC/BS and pay a few dollars shy of $1200 a month for it. Obviously, I have a health issue. Out of curiousity I called the Kentucky Healthcare Connection today ( http://kynect.ky.gov/) to ask them what I would be looking at in regards to coverage and rates under the new health care act. I told them about my pre-existing condition and was told, “Do not let go of your current policy because as of right now you would be declined under all the current offerings they are starting off with.” When I inquired as to how this could be I was told, “Until other more comprehensive packages are developed by the carriers in the future,… Read more »

John McShame has outlived the war hero mantra. He is no hero of any kind. The damage that he has done to this country while in the Senate and his entitlement feeling that he had to be the R candidate in 2008 when everyone knew he could not win against Oliar. He is a disgrace to the uniform and the oath that he once took to defend this country. Do not refer to him as a hero because he is not.

I actually think Levin’s rant against McShame is a waste of breath. The one I think Levin should really go after is Senator John Cornyn of – what state is from – oh yeah, our neighbors to the west, TEXAS! Senator Cornyn on Hannity’s radio show today was nothing less than a profile in complete cowardice. Senator Cornyn basically told Senator Ted Cruz to FORGET THE ALAMO and only remember that in the US Senate “RESISTENCE IS FUTILE” to borrow the great line of the BORG from Star Trek. Cornyn is really stretching the limits of all credibility in stating that what we really need to do is to get Senators like Hillary Landrieu from my home state to be on the record as once again having voted for this insanity. Cornyn must really be a complete fool if he thinks we here in Louisiana don’t know what she will… Read more »

Yes, I heard the interview as well and the Texas Senator sounded like a wounded puppy dog! The great state of Texas can do better than that! But additionally, I think the Senator has become so entrenched into the DC culture that he’s just become jaded! Which is why he should be primaried!

I recall Reid asking Cruz if he would let McCain speak; this was towards the end, and Cruz said he only had until noon and shut the request down. This in no way is a support of Mc Cain because I feel he is deranged, but it seemed that McCain wanted to speak. Same thing happened with Rand; McCain told him “later” when he asked to speak during his filibuster. I wouldn’t have let Durbin speak either.

And in 2010, something wonderful happened… the Tea Party emerged and we cleaned house (for what good it did us)! And in God’s wisdom, Mitt Romney didn’t get elected in 2012. And you might say: But Obama got elected! Yes he did unfortunately. But you got to see more corruption – especially with Benghazi.

One of the big accomplishments of Ted Cruz, Lee, and company in their engagement of the American people into the murkiness of 0bamacare is that they have helped re-introduce a large segment of constituents throughout the country to the mechanism that is Congress, and have hopefully seeded kernals of doubt in the minds of the Borg Dem masses.

Why would CSPAN advertise that this was a quasi-filibuster but then put Sen. Cruz’s filibuster in the record of filibusters. This just goes to show that all the media, even CSPAN, will be against Sen. Cruz and especially Conservatives.

I know why MC LAME didnt go toe to toe with Cruz and thats because he was going to be pummeled. Cruz not only is a conservative icon now, but also has the academia to completely Destroy any of these dirtbags. Just when you thought that Mclame could not go any lower. There is going to come a time when there is going to be a reckoning, and the time for us to take it to the streets, for far too long the silent majority has been taking it in the back from these cowards, and we are simply getting fed up with it.

Let us not forget that while 2016 is a Presidential Election year it is also a year when Senator McCain will be up for re-election. He has hinted that he may retire but just in case he doesn’t let’s consider the recruitment options:

Martha McSally, retired United States Air Force colonel
Trent Franks, U.S. Representative
Matt Salmon, U.S. Representative
David Schweikert, U.S. Representative
Ben Quayle, Former U.S. Representative (Son of former Vice President Dan Quayle)

I understand that Sarah Palin owns a home in Scottsdale while having her permanent residence in Alaska but perhaps with some persuasion she could become a permanent Arizona resident.

I was thinking the same! Sarah Palin would be a great candidate an empty senate seat in AZ should McCain retire. Who knows, maybe she is working on convincing him to do so! I believe she would have the support from not only the citizens of the state but the good governor, Jan Brewer!

What an excellent choice it would be!

I thought this for some time. However Sarah has been very resistant to running for the Senate. I wondered why until recently on Greta when she said she had almost no support from the GOP in Alaska. She basically said she was not much of a Republican sort of an Alaskan independent like her husband.

I thought McCain just got re elected in 2012 ? That would take him to 2018 but there were reports he was thinking about retiring in 2016. He will not retire because his little man ego and he loves the spotlight. However, he may not get elected next time around. Could be wrong on his last election date ?

They are what they are. We need to realize that and go after their enablers like Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air.

These establishment bloggers post enough Teaparty red meat to keep a
readership, but their main function is to gently nudge their readers
away from Teaparty candidates. They are the ones who convinced the
masses that only a moderate like McCain could beat Obama. They are the
ones who scared conservatives into believing not picking Romney as the
nominee would mean defeat.

No he will not.

McCain won reelection in 2010 by being a Tea Party Conservative. He was for every single Tea Party issue.

He went back to Washington DC and broke every single campaign promise. Same thing he has done every six years.

If he ran again he would once again be a Tea Party Conservative for 9 months to win reelection.

As McCain said…”elections have consequences”. It’s as if he’s saying “hey, don’t blame me….you voted for it and we’re going to let you have it”. Well, McCain, if you do that it will seriously hurt a lot of people and the economy, and even when Obamacare fails the Democrat party will create more “corrective” legislation instead of kill it. We cannot let the train wreck happen.

McLame is the WORST senator in the nation! Not only for the reasons Mark gave, but for other reasons as well. First, he may have been in the military, but he has forgotten what it’s like to be tortured..the way he torturing his party. Second, he is a republican under false pretense! He ran against several good candidates such as Fred Thompson, but had NO intention of taking the presidency, grabbing it away from other potentials. He lied about signing on to defund Obamacare, but he never had any intention of getting rid of it…only to remake it! McLame needs to face reality…it’s time for him to say, “Goodnight Gracy!”
