Skip to comments.Now John McCain goes to the floor and slams Rand Paul’s filibuster as ‘not helpful’, ‘ridiculous’

Why dont John McCain and Lindsey Graham just get a room or something. As soon as I heard that Lindsey Graham didnt like filibuster, I knew that McCain would be soon to follow with the same garbage.
Just like clockwork:

"McLame (RINO-AZ) and Grahamnesty (POOFTER-SC) are upset only because Paul stepped on the news of their pigout last night w/ B. Hussein at the ritzy Trough N Brew restaurant."
I wish Lady G. and McCain would just shut up.
Wonder if the DNR bracelet is up-to-date.... /sarc
I cannot imagine what Arizona is thinking when they re-elect McCain time after time. Arizona voters should have retired him years ago.
It is the best thing I have seen happen in DC for quite a while. Cruz made Holder look like a buffoon on the issue. Put McCain and Graham in the witness chair and let Cruz question THEM!!!
Whoa, I would pay "cash money" to see that, RatRipper!
I agree... Sen. Paul's filibuster was the best thing I've seen in DC for years. And Sen. Ted Cruz was fabulous.
Sen. Rand Paul on Rush Limbaugh's show NOW... interview just started!
Hearing McNasty and his little buddy Grahamnesty rush to the microphone to squeal like pigs in their protest over Rand Paul’s filibuster is the ultimate proof that something of great significance happened last night.
It will take more time for it all to shake out and see what farther-reaching impact it may have. For 12 hours millions of Americans of many political persuasions and none were glued to C-SPAN watching some very bright lights explain and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. It was mangificent.
This may be the way to bypass the media, the ridiculous talking heads, and the shameful likes of McCain, Graham, Boehner, Rove and the rest of their ilk.
Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio were all brilliant last night. The country needs to see more of this, unfiltered and unchained.
Fact is if it weren't for his Daddy, given his ability to bounce aircraft off anything in the area, he'd been either kicked out of the Navy or a just another deck ape. Instead in the long run we end up with a very large turd in the punch bowl.
There he goes again!
The moderate GOP attention-whore does his job.
“Look at me, MSM! Interview me! Ask me stuff! I’ll give you whatever sound-bite you need! Ask me to come on your show! Love me! I’m the ‘reasonable’ Republican!”
John McCain doesn’t give a f**k about anyone but John McCain. Never has, never will. He’s worse than useless. He’s actually useful to the other side!
I’m a Zonie. What I can tell you is that AZ id now home to many Cali rejects and of course the illegals who vote.
The last election, I and many others did not vote for MCCain. But we are now outnumbered. And the constant push/peer pressure by many to elect a ‘winner’ no matter what got us another 6 of this traitor.
Yet people say this id better than a third party that might lose?
HOW??? These POSs vote democrat anyway. Romney had a record showing he would have been McCain on steroids. Yer ...conservatives (barf) are still having fits because some of us refused to be cheerleaders to our own destruction.
And Sarah Palin made sure that weasel was reelected.
He did the same with Michele Bachmann and concerns about infiltration of Muslim brotherhood. She has since remained quiet.
next phase usually is his MSM media circuit to minimize/ridicule
Just make McCain a drone pilot. They won’t stay in the air long enough to threaten anybody.
McCain had money and the media on his side. JD was slimed by both the media and those that owed favors to McCain.
Sarah Palin told them it was alright this time.
McCain needs to GTFO now! ...and could someone please wipe the drool off his chin!
Didn’t watch or read McCain’s slam but that isn’t unexpected. McCain and 11 other Senators spent a couple hours dining with Obama last evening while Paul was on the Senate Floor speaking.
John McCain is “Ridiculous” and “Not helpful!” Shut up John
He only survived because the democrats knew that little Bitch could be bought and stay bought. McCain made a deal with the devil and he continues to uphold his side of it. John McCain will go down in history as a loser. In every aspect of his life. LOSER! Couldn't fly a Jet, couldn't pass up James Keating's offer, couldn't win the Presidency and Couldn't be counted on as a US Senator to uphold the Constitution. Again, LOSER!
McCain has been a senator since 1987. Long term incumbents tend to corrupt their constituencies (prime example: Robert Byrd, D-WV).
John McCain is a collaborator.
He gave $9 million in left over campaign money to his own charity which addresses global issues
There is no GOP. If there were they wouldn’t have nominated this old man to be President.
Exactly! The Republican party is DEAD!
Paul, Cruz and Lee will pass their fight last night on to inspire and encourage others to have the determination to stand for our Constitutional principles.
Now who's ‘ridiculous’ McCain?
Ahh, well, well...he never misses an opportunity to stick it to us, does he.
With LG it’s probably affairs with male pages. McCain? Who knows. I think Stockholm syndrome is the truth of it.
That picture just screams “QUEER AS A 3 DOLLAR BILL”. We’ve got plenty of women in California who are more masculine than him (gag cough). How is this POS getting re-elected in the South?
What Rand Paul ought to do is put out a press release stating this.
I appreciate Senator McCain and Grahams opinion on this matter, however I staunchly disagree.
We are in this mess because of the the type of behavior you saw played out last night. While Several Republican Senators and I filibustered to adress a basic Human Right and a Constitutional one, Senator McCain and Graham decided to dine with the ONE person in America that thinks he has the right to use Drones to Kill American Citizens on US Soil.
There are those of us that were Sent to Washington to Clean up the Mess created thru dinner meetings, back office sell outs and kickbacks. Then there are those that are afraid their turf is being challanged. They prefer to cower and capitulate versus Challange and Defend what is good and Great about this country.
Obviously had Senator McCain’s opinions and positions been a popular one He would be the President instead of a Senator.
Then sit back and watch the EMTs haul the old goat away in a straight jacket.
Yeah, I know he endured very brutal treatment in a POW camp and I respect and appreciate that sacrifice but geez, I think it’s time to go.
MCCain also treated with contempt the families of POW and embraced his former captors. Happened long a go but it is something I can not forget.
Iam sure it was hell.
Doesn’t give the old Goat ANY authority to sell out this country. He has many times, years ago he did it for cash and vacations (Keating 5). Now he does it because he is a Attention Whore.
Old Bull? More like a swayback Mule.
Can’t wait till the young guns roll his wheel chair in the corner away from the microphones so he can dribble in his spittle bucket out of public view.
McCain continues to make himself irrelevant, right along with Lindsey Graham.
So Obama bought ‘em a fancy dinner, eh? He did no such thing. The money that paid for that bribe came from US. We, the taxpayers, are on the hook for that. Not Der Furhrer.
And I bet the cheapskate didn’t even leave a tip.
AZ RECALL McLame now.
Zero didn’t buy them a fancy dinner. WE did.
“He and Grahmannesty were at the WH last night having dinner with O talking aboout all the views they have in common.”
NOT at the White Hut. At the Jefferson Hotel.
Coach freak accident - Alvin Lee - Giant wave kills
Rand Paul - Eddie Murphy - Hope Solo
Maybe the "giant wave" of crap from Lindsey and McCain was so big Paul (along with the rest of the US) finally drowned in it.
Time for McCain to retire or join the Democratic Party. No fool like an old fool.
F U J Mc
McCain just needs face time geeze!
Time for the old guard to just go away! Nothing , nothing new or anything has been passed it this house for the American People!
They are just in saving Obama’s ass mode, higher taxes no cuts in spending!
We will be paying for the Obama debacle for 20 life times.
Our Nation is crumbling @ our feet. Will the real adults please stand up! Build another Drone boys I guess the Sequester does not include tyranny on Americans from the Dictator!
Send in the Tanks ,Send in the tanks! I also do not understand the sudden oppression of Americans because of nutz with guns Has any law abiding Citizen in possession of firearms committed any mass shooting? Legal owners have not perpetrated any crime against any large group of people!
But it could happen in the near future, with all the oppression of citizens.
According to the White House, Obama did pay for the meal out of his own pocket, not any government funds. Of course, given history, we can't necessarily believe this, but no evidence has as yet been offered to the contrary.
The argument that because we pay his salary that everything he spends is really us spending it doesn't fly. Once we pay his salary, it's his to do with as he pleases, just as anyone else is. I don't hold an employer accountable for the personal spending decision of his employees.
The reason why McCain and Grahamnesty are so upset is they are the neo-con crowd like the 2003 GOP era, They disagree with Paul on this issue.
If the gubment thinks you are a terrorist then they say you are expendable with all your rights.
“Keeping you safe” Better to blow up a few innocent Americans then have the terrorists kill thousands. Plus you cant sue if you are dead.
They are hot on amnesty because it can be used to get low capability Army recruits, traded for a fast path.
wow, I never knew that
