John McCain's Not Sure He'd Vote for Rand Paul in 2016

John McCain, back to being mavericky after a stint as the most conservative senator, says he's not sure who he'd vote for if Hillary Clinton ran against Rand Paul for president in 2016. In an interview with The New Republic's Isaac Chotiner, when asked about that hypothetical 2016 contest, McCain said, "It’s gonna be a tough choice." Then he clarifies: "Let me just clarify that. I think that Rand Paul represents a segment of the GOP, just like his father. And I think he is trying to expand that, intelligently, to make it larger." McCain is reestablishing himself has the No. 1 Republican who criticizes Republicans. All it took was some dinner and phone calls with President Obama.

Good.

Because if John McShame voted for Rand Paul I would seriously have to reconsider my vote for Rand Paul.

Truth is, McShame loves Hitlery...their good buddies, and McShame will definitely be supporting Hitlery in 2016.

Wake up John

The North Koreans Broke Him - He Is A Shell Of His Former Self

My youngest brother is a police officer (NARC) working in Washington State. He met John McCain a few years ago because his wife was elected the Indian Tribal Counsel affairs leader. She has met and worked with Barack & Obama and before them Laura Bush. My brother often accompanies his wife on trips to DC. He met John McCain who was very interested in weaseling his way into ripping off Indian gaming profits.

My brother's opinion of McCain is that he is devoid of all moral principles, and is money and power hungry and has hostile tendencies.

My brother likes much what Rand Paul says, but he is a bit of a neocon.

McCain was shot down over

McCain was shot down over Hanoi, Vietnam, not North Korea. The Vietnamese broke him ... and my Vietnamese girlfriend is about to break me lol

North Koreans?

I know he's old, but...jeeze.

During The Vietnam War He Got Shot Down Over N. Korea...

His father was an Admiral aboard an Aircraft Carrier I believe at that time. The North Koreans interrogated McCain into reveal the positions the naval fleets, etc..

They put him up at the Hanoi Hilton and treated him like a king for spilling his guts..

I wouldn't ever sit and break bread with that gutless bastard.

How many U.S. servicemen died because of what he revealed to the North Koreans.

Many years later he comes home a freaking war hero and gets involved in politics.

You gotta love it - John McCain War Hero - Yea sure..

North Vietnamise

Hanoi, and the Hanoi Hilton, is/was in Vietnam. He was in the Vietnam War, not Korean.

Of course he won't

Paul won't join him in murdering foreigners. McCain is a pathetic, bitter, angry little old man.

Rand Paul will not sacrifice American lives to the pagan god of war.

I pray that McCain repents soon, his hour is drawing near (I assume) when he will have to face the judgment of God who he claims to believe in.

But I am forgetting. He thinks the NSA is God, thus he thinks he has already faced judgment.

It just goes to show how little difference there is...

It just goes to show how little difference there is between McCain and Clinton.

Of course

This doesn't surprise me. He is a coward and played to lose. Obama didn't even have to rig the election. He won hands down because McCain had no intention of winning and so did Romney. They are all on the same side. Until Republicans start to realize that, nothing is going to change.

McCain is a war monger and is

McCain is a war monger and is a moderate. He's the problem and not the solution. By the way, they cheated for him in WA State in 2008. Was disgraceful to watch

Great! Condemnation by McCain is as good as an

endorsement by most Republicans.

John McCain could be dead of

John McCain could be dead of old age by then, I pray.

McCain is a war monger, a shredder of the Bill of Rights, and is favor of illegal immigration. The sooner he retires the better off this country will be.

When the hell!?!

When the hell was McCain EVER a conservative!?!

You know this pisses me off, I've heard the MSM saying that Rand is in a battle with "conservatives". But every single person attacking Rand is a frickin liberal RINO. McCain, Christie, and King are a bunch of Rockefeller liberals.

This isn't a battle between liberty republicans and conservatives, it's the liberal RINOs attacking anyone and everyone who opposes them.

and to be fair

a lot of the people who might vote for Rand Paul would not have voted for, and didn't vote for McCain, which is why he lost.

mad dog mccain

is getting to the point where he's not sure when he gets up whether to wear socks or not. some men like ron paul with a good diet, exercise, not to mention a brilliant mind stay sharp and full of life. mccain with his warmongering decaying brain is only full of death, and hillary would be on the same page with him on that. i'll never forget her statement on saddam "we came, we saw, he died" followed by her joyful chortle.

I am sure I did not vote for him.

I am sure I don't care how he would vote. Meh.
If his species of RINO refuses to vote for people representing a certain "segment" of the party, there is no reason for people in that "segment" to vote for candidates who represent his "segment" of the party. What he is saying here is not only does he not represent the Rand Paul "segment," he also doesn't want that segment to have representation. Even if the party wins, the "segment" loses if it votes for the neocon chicken hawk wing. The neocons would rather lose the election than the control of the party. I have similar feelings. I would rather see them lose the election if they are in control too.

Some of these old farts

Some of these old farts should start dying off. I'm turning 50 this year and David Rockefeller, Kissenger, Brzinsky, McCain and a bunch of these assholes were ancient when I was in my teens.
