Maybe most of us don’t see this as a shocker which is why I wish Donald Trump wouldn’t have endorsed Sen. John McCain during the Arizona primary. McCain is a drag on the entire Senate. Congress won’t right its problems until McCain leaves and everyone knows this. The longer “Songbird” McCain stays, the more the Senate will fail.
McCain just gave the election to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in his latest ad. She hasn’t even won the election and McCain is saying that he will be the stopgap for her liberal policies.
I don’t like McCain, and I don’t like how he uses politics for his benefit. I can say the same thing about many other senators and representatives in Congress, but McCain is a special case. He is supposed to be on our side (conservative), but he publicly sides with the Democrats and I’ve never been able to get over that.
From The Hill:
Sen. John McCain promises to be a check on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a new campaign video but doesn’t mention Donald Trump, his party’s nominee for president, even once.
The Arizona Republican, who survived a tough primary this week, will face Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick in the general election. Election handicappers say Democrats have a shot of picking up the seat and ousting McCain, a four-term senator.
In the ad, McCain says Kirkpatrick would be a “rubber stamp” for Clinton’s policies.”My opponent, Ann Kirkpatrick, is a good person. But if Hillary Clinton is elected president, Arizona will need a senator who will act as a check, not a rubber stamp for the White House,” McCain says in the ad.
“Ann Kirkpatrick won’t oppose higher taxes. She won’t oppose more federal spending. And she won’t oppose increased debts that slow economic growth. She won’t offer alternatives that trust in the innovation and industry of the American people and create jobs with a future. I will.”
Other Republican senators have distanced themselves from Trump as they seek to defend their seats and help the party hold on to the Senate majority.
Excuse me if I did not believe McCain and his latest plea for help to get elected. McCain needed to be retired in the Republican Arizona primary, and that did not work. When I said earlier that I do not like him, I meant it.
I was struggling to write this next sentence, but I’m going to do it. I hope McCain gets beaten by the Democratic challenger in the General Election. If that’s the only way to rid ourselves of songbird McCain then so be it.
