Senator John McCain, who cast the deciding vote to squelch the clean repeal of Obamacare, chided both sides for not being bipartisan over the last several years.
McCain said, “I hope we can again rely on humility, on our need to cooperate, on our dependence on each other, to learn how to trust each other again, and by so doing, better serve the people who elected us. Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio, television and the internet. To hell with them. They don’t want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood.”
To hell with you, John McCain!
Ayn Rand had a great statement about how there are two sides to every issue: The right side, the wrong side and then there’s the middle — which is always evil.
That really applies to John McCain.
John McCain is worse than Obama himself. Obama openly ran on a platform of spreading the wealth, and promised to do everything he could to nationalize health care. The results were predictable to anyone who has cracked one economics textbook or knows even one single truth about human nature and behavior. But it’s what he promised, and — sadly — he delivered.
John McCain is the exact opposite of a man of his word. And then, when he openly breaks his word on the single most important issue of our day — casting the deciding vote for the exact opposite of what he promised, to repeal Obamacare — he blames the dissenting voices on talk radio and the Internet who criticize him for his repeated lack of credibility.
Those who defend him now are the same ones who supported Obamacare and socialized medicine more generally, all along. And they are the same ones who savaged McCain when he ran against Obama for president in 2008. It’s sad, it’s sick and it’s almost incomprehensible. McCain is nothing more than a sycophant, and when he screams for humility, he’s appealing to the leftists whose approval he so desperately wants.
We’re supposed to withhold criticism of John McCain’s brutalizing hypocrisy because he was once a POW in the Vietnam War. But if this charlatan is really such a hero, then what did he endure all that suffering for? If he fought in Vietnam to undermine Communism in favor of liberty, then why did he cast the deciding vote to keep Obamacare?
By any rational standard, John McCain is the least moral man in the U.S. Congress. And that’s really saying something given the moral stature of our Congress. And then he has the audacity to blame those who call him on it, in talk radio and on the Internet.
Humility is not the way to win a war. Supporters of Obamacare and socialized medicine are relentless, unblinking and uncompromising. The middle is always evil because when you soften your position you lose to bad guys who are unblinking and uncompromising, as leftists always are. McCain is worse than a loser. He pretends to be on one side while actively aiding and abetting the other. In the moral swampland that’s Washington DC, McCain is the lowest swamp creature of them all.
We will all be so much better off without him.
