Skip to comments.John McCain needs to RETIRE?
Posted on 03/09/2013 8:16:18 AM PST by princess leah
This week marked an earthquake of a seismic movement within the Republican ranks and the results has been mostly positive. However, as a result of Rand Paul standing up for our Constitutional rights, he shone the light around the Washington insiders and one man in particular looks exposed for all his political pride. That man is John McCain. He is an old, bitter white man who lost a Presidential election back in 08 and now sees his power slipping away and REFUSES to embrace and encourage THE RIGHT THING which is WHAT REPRESENTS AMERICAN PEOPLE.
So, is it time for John McCain to RETIRE? Or perhaps it may be time for Arizonians to RECALL HIM FOR GOOD. As an Arizonian I would be willing to help this cause as we could replace him with a much better candidate with a Republican Gov'r at the helm to appoint one.
I reference the Ulsterman Report as it brought out an excellent article called "Out with the Old And in with the New" as they so rightly point out how the "old guard" sat around a table with the president and pretend they are still relevant.
Hope is real for Republicans but not through the old guard of John McCain and his "buddies".
Don’t forget the 2000 elections...
and yes, he is old and bitter and ENTITLED.
MvQweeg is slime.
The word is not “retire,” but “seppuku”.
Bottom line: You can vote him out, or wait for him to resign or die.
I hope that, in 2016, Sen. McCain will retire and be replaced by Gov. Brewer. My parents live in Prescott, AZ, and my mom agrees with me.
Top dog of the good old boys doesn’t want to relinquish his power & perks. Term limits are so needed.
NO ! It is PAST TIME !
I seem to remember that there was a recall effort that started getting traction back in 2001. If memory serves correctly, he was saved by 911.
Time to mount a new effort?
He actually has been doing many things right since he lost the election but IF he can be replaced with someone better, by all means, it's time for him to go.
John McCain has lived a good life off the Govt. teat, and he could retire and continue to so so.
The Republican party need to take some exlax and divest themselves of the old waste in the body politics.
I would agree but my concern is that Gabby Gifford’s husband is prepping to be a contender here. He is a lib against guns but owns one himself. He has been in the commercial they say with her against guns to get face time recognition. We don’t need a spouse of a tragic shooting and a retired astronaut as his qualifications to be the new senator from here if McCain retires or is challenged. Mr. Gabby Giffords would win due to the sympathy votes in AZ.
I don't care if he's old
I don't care if he's white or purple
I don't care if he's a man, a woman, or "other"
What matters to me is that he's corrupt, evil, possibly insane, and lacking in any moral compass whatsoever. He is utter slime.
Then how about: scum, RINO-dirtbag, traitor, feculent idiot, media-whore, condescending bastard?
Then, they can both announce their retirements from the US Senate effective just as soon as a real American Patriot can be appointed by their respective State Legislatures!
Two RINO old establishment idiot problems solved!
Next, fire up the tea party movement, search for additional candidates who will actually serve America's values and live within their limitations placed on them in the US Const!!!!
Americans do not lose, do not give up, and never surrender their God given rights to this socialist government and its enablers!
He's already been there far too long. I can't understand why he isn't off somewhere nice enjoying his family and his wife's money. How anyone could relish living in the beltway leper colony is beyond me. Maybe getting to rub elbows with Juan Williams and Alan Colmes gets him off.
All in all he was better than most, but now it is time for the people of Arizona to retire him.
If he retired today it would be 13 years too late.
But I'm reminded of Frank Lautenberg who got elected to the Senate by hinting that his 72-year-old opponent was too old for the job. He's now 89 himself and doesn't show any inclination to leave any time soon.
Lautenberg has announced that he will not run for another term.
McStain need to be PUT AWAY along with Slimestein.
And we were implored to put the Maverick in the White House in 2008? Good grief what has the GOP become?
It was time for McCain to retire YEARS ago! He’s the poster boy for term limits!
FLUSH THE JOHN!
... Johnny and Teddy were Senators
On opposite sides of the aisle
They got together and drafted a bill
Guaranteed to make illegals smile
Amnesty was their game and they had no shame
Johnny and Senator Feingold
Gave campaign finance a try
But then the highest court in the land
Said the 1st amendment must apply
Gotta play by the rules now Johnny looks like a fool
Johnny and Mr. Obama
They both agree Gitmo should close
But bringing terrorists into the USA
Is a plan that we oppose
No, they dont belong and Johnnys got it all wrong
Now Johnny and Senator Lieberman
Got together on cap and trade
Anemic hands across the aisle
Gonna send the country to its grave
Its time to let him know old Johnnys gotta go
Johnny believes Global Warming
Limousine Liberals and all
Congressional junkets to Copenhagen
Everybodys havin a ball
Just ask Al Gore - Johnny knows the score
S & L Man Charlie Keating
He came to Johnny one day
Said the government boys are sniffing around
How much to make em go away?
Did Johnny take a bribe to join the Keating 5?
Now fast-forward 20 years later
Banks are in trouble again
Johnny says, Lets bail em out
Its just a trillion or maybe ten.
Lets put some wind in their sails cause theyre too big to fail.
We know theres oil in Alaska
Drilling wont cause any harm
But Johnny agrees with the tree-hugging geeks
Gas is gonna cost a leg and an arm
Johnny why cant you see whats good for you and me?
Now everyone knows about ACORN
They get lots of taxpayers dough
Prostitution rings and voter fraud
And home loans to any old schmoe
No matter ACORNs crimes Johnny thinks theyre just fine
Were tired of hearin your flip-flops
Were tired of hearin your lies
You may think were all dummies but you cant
Pull the wool over our eyes
Youre careers hit a snag - so start packin your bags
Cause Johnny, youve worn out your welcome
Its time to bid DC goodbye
Go write a book or learn to cook
And eat a little humble pie
Just ask Sheriff Joe he says you gotta go
Yeah, go Johnny, go its time to hit the road.

For those that have Facebook you should see the 10,000+ comments saying much the same thing. People are mad, rightfully so.
I think he’s trying to hold his seat for his daughter.
Thanks for the info. Now I'm wondering if he would have done that if he didn't face what could be a strong challenger in the primaries.
He won’t. Too cushy a gig. - Like many before him, he will hang on until he turns into a rock; long after he deports himself like a buffoon while fancies himself leaving a “legacy”. You know. “Career of public service” and all that.
John McCain is a collaborator.
“John McCain has lived a good life off the Govt. teat, and he could retire and continue to so so.”
He’s also been living off his wife’s teat, she being a “beer distributor heiress” and all. And they’ve left us with their fat pig daughter, the one with no brain and a big mouth. The fruit didn’t fall very far from the tree!
Exactly! That is why the founders sort of missed the boat by not including term limits either in the original constitution or the first amendments. So I believe there should be a movement started for the 28th Amendment to limit the terms of Representatives and Senators to Congress. That is the ONLY thing that will cure this disease known as Potomac Fever! While we are at it why not add a 29th Amendment that states that Congress cannot exempt themselves for laws that they pass.
McCain and others should have been history after Keating Five episode. That alone should have dismissed him as a candidate.
“Lautenberg has announced that he will not run for another term.”
Glad to hear it! He is the last of the “Old RAT Bastard’s Club” in the Senate to “elect to spent time with his family.” Now he, Levin, Rockefeller and Harkin can get together at the “Rat Rest Home” and congratulate themselves for all the damage they did to our country. Maybe Chamblis will join them, birds of a feather and all!
That SOB that gave us the "Church Admendment" not to go after Dictators? Oh I could scream...
But back to McCain....
I say we have a petition, even if it does nothing as a vote of no-confidence in AZ (and /or Nationwide) asking for his resignation.
A couple of Million Signatures just to rub his nose in it, and to tell him we have had enough, and this is our form of redress...
Where do I send $100 to get this going since I am not an AZ resident...
McVain is also a warmongering statist.
“...If he retired today it would be 13 years too late....”
Yep! No doubt about it. He has hurt this country badly.
I thank him for his military service to this country and it now past time to do a good service to the country again by GTHO of the Senate. Retire, don’t run or die. I don’t care which he does as long as he is gone from there. Arizona, and America, deserve so much better.
Some would argue he is already a rock from the neck up.
Whatever happened to people quitting their day jobs before running for president? Then if your wax wings melt you can slink off into darkness like a good boy. At least Al Gore has been merely a freelance nuisance since 2000. Even Bob Dole knew when to quit, for liberty’s sake!
Yet McCain struts around like anyone still cares, and Kerry rose a few notches. Imagine still having to hear about Romney a decade from now. Blech!
I think where he really jumped the shark was in 2008. The financial crisis was just breaking. It seems as if there was a closed door meeting in Washington wherein he spoke eloquently and in a commanding fashion while at the same meeting Obozo was exposed as being the empty suit that we all know that he is.
Then somehow - all of a sudden - 2 things happened
- McCain decided to suspend his campaign on the eve of one the presidential debates.
- Revisionists came along and rewrote the history of that meeting so that it was McCain who was in the corner sucking his thumb and it was Obozo who “took charge”.
Arguably the 2008 election was decided over those couple of days.
From that moment on McCain has been Obozo’s water boy. Some would argue it happened long before but for me this was the clear demarcation point.
One of the best opinions I have ever read!
“the Ulsterman Report as it brought out an excellent article called “Out with the Old And in with the New”.”
Oh I think he should stick around. As long as he continues to behave like the RINO’s very own Elmer Fudd, he is being very helpful in hastening the demise of ‘country club’ Republicans once and for all.
How can legislator's exempt themselves and their staffs from, say the obamacare "tax"?
No question about it.
He’s a hell of a lot better than Democrats—he does many things right.
Great lyrics! Thanks, AuntB!
The guy who wrote and performed it was really good, too. It was on you tube, now I can’t find it, but McCain is pretty good at getting things, shall we say...rearranged...on google searches, etc.
[snip]John McCain - the WORST Senator money can buy!
Heres another thing...he has purchased relevant keywords on the net, so no matter what youre looking for you get his campaign websites.
The Search For A Candidate (from the pres primary, 2008)
McCains people say that every dollar they spend on online search advertising brings in three or four bucks.
The national polls dont reflect it, but in one sense John McCain is the clear front runner in the presidential race: he leads in search-engine ads. When you type McCains name into Google, alongside or above the standard search results youll always get a text ada sponsored linkthat leads you to a Web site soliciting campaign contributions for the Arizona senator. What happens when you type Giuliani into Google? You get a paid link to the former New York mayors site. But you also get a McCain ad.
The other obvious search words involve search terms people use when researching specific issues. Here again, McCain is busy; his people say that at various times theyve bought 10,000 different words. Giuliani pops up with flat tax and illegal immigrant. But when I tried universal health care, nothing from any candidate came up. Vary it a little by typing health care reform and you get a paid link to John McCain
