The pathetic Republican nominee for president in 2008 showed his well know ugly side today against the tea party. On the Senate floor, John McCain railed against tea party candidates, quoting from a Wall Street Journal editorial. According to the WSJ and Johnny McLame, the tea party types are Hobbits, living in a land of unreality. Speaking of reality, Senator, did you ever find out how many homes your wife bought for you?
McCain ridiculed the fact that the tea party resulted in candidates like Sharron Angle in Nevada and Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, both of whom lost to Democrat opponents. And you were right there with them every step of the way, trying to push them across the finish line to victory, right Johnny? You pathetic loser. If you would have demonstrated half the disgust towards Obama you exhibit against Tea Party candidates, maybe I would despise you 5% less than I do.
In a Senate floor speech laced with sarcasm and stings, the Arizona Republican aimed especially harsh fire at the tea party Wednesday.
McCain said the movement is “foolish” to think a balanced budget amendment could pass before the August 2 deadline. At one point, McCain referred to activists as “tea party hobbits” – the little people who inhabit Middle-earth in the Lord of the Rings series.
McCain – 2008’s Republican presidential nominee – also blasted as “bizarre” an idea supported by current GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, though McCain did not mention her by name. And he took a shot at two senators who were backed by the tea party in the 2010 midterm election: Christine O’Donnell of Delaware and Sharron Angle of Nevada. –Shannon Travis, writing for CNN
That’s pretty rich if you think about what just happened last November. Republicans made huge gains nationally and even bigger gains at the state and local level. The Democrat party was shellacked, worse even than the total butt-kicking Republicans got in ’08 with the lame and lethargic McCain at the top of the ticket. Where’s the love from the royalist insiders like McCain, McConnell and even Speaker Boehner. You saw the truth today, as demonstrated by John McCain. It was very instructive. The bluebloods and Republican insiders hate the tea party and their constitutional idealism worse than they hate the statist Democrats and their Marxist president.
Have you ever seen McCain say anything about Obama like what he said today about the tea party? Has Speaker Boehner ever told the Democrats to get THEIR ASSES in line. No and no. Keep it up boys and you will reap a third party whirlwind. And that friends and neighbors may well be akin to the first trumpet. The scorching of the GOP. . . or worse. So let it be written, so let it be.
So, Senator McCain, is that what you want? You are 75 years old and a lot closer to the end than the beginning. You will be remembered as a loser. Must you misuse even your golden years as a backstabbing, burned out, misquided old gadfly? That’s what you are and you convicted yourself most thoroughly today. There will never be amnesty for you. I pray God their will be a comeuppance.
