    Default John McClain

    Breitbart reported that John McCain intimated he might run again in 2016 (presumably for his Senate seat). He will be 80 years old by then.

    What a crying shame if AZ would actually re-elect him. I would be amazed if he wasn't primaried.

    Not to mention, if he were to die in office, they'd pay his millionaire wife her $174,000 or more, like Lautenberg's widow.

    John McClain is the Bruce Willis character in the Die Hard series....and Cindy McCain is the heiress to her dad's Budweiser distributorship, one of the largest in the Southwest...her dad was also part of the Keating 5

    You might not agree with him, but AZ is known for electing moderates from both sides of the isle. If he runs I am certain he will win.

    John Maclain, is he the long lost brother of Norman and Paul Maclean? I may vote for him if that is the case

    I wouldnt have called former Senator Jon Kyl a moderate, and Barry Goldwater was certainly not a moderate

    Depending on where you are on the spectrum is how one sees things - I would call Goldwater sensible, Kyl while having good ideas failed to carry through on those (capital gains tax), & now the latest Flake just let his 100% C4G record be wasted by his support for McCain & Schumer's ideas .

    Henlee is not in our spectrum - Bon .

    Sorry about the typo there in the thread line ... I fixed the post itself.

    Henlee, I voted for McCain, and I gave him credit for having some character based on his POW history.

    However, watching his behavior since 2008 I have come to a different opinion on him. His support of "bi-partisan" Senate immigration bill was part of it. His constituents are among those who suffer most from the issue of illegal immigration, and putting his trust in this administration not to negate border security provisions of that proposed bill was naive at best. He's been in DC long enough to not be so naive. I think his constituents may have noticed as well.

    Yes, I believe Rubio was no less naive ... but he seems to have come to a more realistic place after the POTUS and Ds demonstrating what their version of "negotiating" is like.

    Lastly, his behavior on several occasions leads me to believe that he is more for McCain than he is for his constituents. He resorted to name-calling and demeaning of his colleagues. I believe he was envious of the following of Rs that rallied around Cruz and Lee ... that he envied they were able to demonstrate a leadership that he has never really inspired. Even if you don't agree with Cruz or Lee, it's hard to deny that they are leaders. Even the MSM were willing to grant that I think he has a bitterness about him in having lost the race in 2008, and he lost what "power" he might have had as a "leader" in the R party ... even when it's been pretty hard to find a leader in the R party.

    Do we really need a DC sider serving another 6-yr term beginning at the age of 80? I really don't think so.
