John McCain has lost it: Ted Cruz is “not representing us”



I think it is time for John McCain to hang up the sneakers and enjoy retirement. We thank you for your service in our military, but your political leadership is now hurting this country.

John McCain doesn’t represent any conservative I know. And Meghan McCain CERTAINLY doesn’t represent any young conservative I know.

On Friday, after blaming conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Obama administration’s mishandling of military death benefits, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Cruz simply did not represent the GOP.
Fox News host Martha MacCallum mentioned that Cruz would be visiting President Barack Obama along with other Republican senators like Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Marco Rubio (R-FL) at the White House on Friday.

She asked McCain, “How do you feel about him representing you there?”

In response, McCain smirked before saying, “First of of all, Martha, please, he’s not representing us there.”

Also in the interview, McCain said conservatives were as much to blame for the problem regarding the military death benefits as Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

    I will agree with Sen. McCain on one point: Sen. Cruz does NOT represent the Alzheimer’s wing of the Republican party. Instead, he represents the sane outsiders that the inside-the-beltway Republican Establishment is always rejecting (unless they can find a way to co-opt their interests for their own good).

    I, for one, am sick of always seeing Sen. McCain being trotted out before some television camera to pontificate about the way he thinks the non-Establishment members of the Republican party are rejecting the views of himself and others. Remember that when McCain was running for president as the Republican party nominee, he talked about rejecting the views of the Republican party and being a maverick? How can he then come back and complain about someone else within the Republican party not representing the views of the party? That just doesn’t make sense. In fact, it falls somewhere between laughable and pathetic! I am wondering how anyone can take him seriously on this issue.

    As for Meghan McCain: If she wants to pontificate with her views, I’m all for it. But she needs to keep in mind that the views she expresses are her own, and probably don’t agree with any other person on the planet.
