Posted on 01/25/2014 2:54:31 PM PST by Cyber Liberty
The Arizona Republican Party formally censured Sen. John McCain on Saturday, citing a voting record they say is insufficiently conservative.
The resolution to censure McCain was approved by a voice-vote during a meeting of state committee members in Tempe, state party spokesman Tim Sifert said. It needed signatures from at least 20 percent of state committee members to reach the floor for debate.
Sifert said no further action was expected.
McCain spokesman Brian Rogers declined to comment on the censure.

Will he change his ways? No. Will it be a wake-up call to his new mini-me Jeff Flake? Maybe.
The story is AP, so the standard bias is applied....
Democrats will jump to his defense!
McCain’s lapdog, Linda Graham, is also piling up censure votes from county Republican parties in South Carolina.
Let’s censure these two democrat handmaidens straight out of the party.
What exactly in hell does insufficiently conservative MEAN?...
WELL... it means he is a collaborator with democrats..
You know........................... like Myth Romney...
What does collaborator mean?...
Answer : American Vichy Stooge..
Yeah... right Nazi’s.... I only WISH this was hyperbole.. it isn’t..
I remember that just prior to the 9-11-2001 terrorist attacks, that there was a movement underway to Recall McCain. Obviously, the effort went up in smoke with the attacks. I wonder why that effort can’t be brought into play, now.
Anybody from Arizona care to comment on this?
There have been a couple of separate Censure votes in SC against Grahamnesty.
Federal officeholders — senators and congressmen — cannot be recalled. This has been litigated both in federal court (Idaho, 1967) and state court (New Jersey, 2013). You have to beat him in an election to remove him or wait for him to die.
Sounds like housecleaning time for the AZ GOP, eh?
Yeah, never going to get the half-million signatures it will take.
Yes. It’s been a while since I was thrown off the Convention. Eff them is all anybody will get out of me anymore.
“There have been a couple of separate Censure votes in SC against Grahamnesty.”
Indeed, Howie66. Linda appeared on radio station WORD in Greenville, SC, this week and confirmed that he’s an elitist jerk who cares nothing for the good people of South Carolina. He refused to answer questions, tried to present himself as a prosecutor against Obuma in the Benghazi scandal and just made a complete leftist, drooling ass of himself.
Linda is going down in the upcoming primary.
Mrs. SubMareener says the when they do something you like, send them $5 and let them know why. It is a classical behavioral conditioning approach.
Depends. IF you are talking about the General, what choice did we have? If you are talking about the Primary, turn around and I’ll supply the kick.
(In a very friendly and loving manner, I assure you. :^)
Flake is worse. He taunts his constituents about ramming amnesty down their throats before they get to him in 2018.
If amnesty is stopped until 2016 McCain may make a few token votes against it. I dont know if enough Dems will crossover for his warmongering as it has become more tone deaf.
If one of the statewide office holders in Arizona from 2014 challenges him it may be a better chance to defeat him.
Nobody will ever defeat McQueeg. He’s Senator for life. He’ll leave that office feet first, like his old best buddy Teddy. He has too much Rat support, and too many Pubbies still think of him as a war “hero.”
Flake is a different story, he doesn’t have the war “hero” cover, and if he fails to remember that he will be tossed out.
