McCain sick of fighting Obamacare, decides to fight his GOP colleagues
A new profile on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the October issue of GQ is not likely to do Senator John McCain (R-AZ) any favors. News outlets are reporting that Senator McCain openly stated that “he fucking hates Cruz” and he is “offended by his style”. That really shouldn’t be a surprise considering he’s called Cruz and other limited government conservatives “Wacko Birds”.
Cruz didn’t take it lying down however saying, “I don’t know a conservative who didn’t feel embarrassed voting in 2006 or 2008,” Cruz said. “I think the Republican Party lost its way. We didn’t stand for the principles we’re supposed to believe in.”
That may have been the reason that the GOP lost the election in 2008, nominating a non-conservative candidate whose popularity has sunk even lower in recent years. Now he’s taking to promoting intervention in Syria against the wishes of the majority of the American people. Between that and attacking the GOP’s rising star, Ted Cruz, McCain doesn’t sound like he’s planning on leaving office on a good note. But at least we heard he’s thinking of leaving office.
