Livin inalpine,Yes, probably all true, but McCain has always been a
Bafafone said:"He will be remembered as the Democrat who was in
mascarade as a Republican""Trump registered as a Republican
in Manhattan in 1987 and since that time has changed his party affiliation five
times. In 1999, Trump changed his party affiliation to the Independence Party of
New York. In August 2001, Trump changed his party affiliation to Democratic. In
September 2009, Trump changed his party affiliation back to the Republican
Party. In December 2011, Trump changed to "no party affiliation"
(independent). In April 2012, Trump again returned to the Republican Party."
"But alas rational American voters and ever more Americans who support
President Trump"But Thid.... most rational people read this
article and realized it was about McCain. Not Trump. Not Obama. Not about the
so called and now Hannity obsession "Deep State". Not about Hollywood,
or the liberal media. It's about McCain. And that is the
issue that worries many here. Somehow some now see the entire world as a
referendum on Trump, either promoting and defending him, or an attack on those
who don't agree with him. Most rational people don't see
the world as this black and white world of either pro-Trump or anti-Trump. We
can agree and disagree on many policies..... and it has nothing to do with
Trump. He isn't the center of our world.McCain is an
interesting issue for me. I've never been a supporter of his - with
regards to politics and some of his personal life. I liked Romney over him
previously. But that said, McCain has put actions behind his words. He
actually served his nation. He stood behind what he believed. And I do
I have to give anyone with a military history their due, job well done. The rest
of McCain's record, not so much. He will be remembered as the Democrat who
was in mascarade as a Republican. If he wanted to be honest with the citizens of
this country, he should have declared as a Democrat.
I agree with the positive comments about Senator McCain. I'm honored to use
his title when referring to him. He has served with integrity to his values and
has always tried to do the right thing. Mr. Trump, whose title I find myself too
nauseated by him to use for him, can't hold a candle to him. While I
haven't always agreed with Senator McCain, I have always respected and
admired him. He is a hero of mine because of his true patriotism, devotion, and
dedication to the United States of America. God bless you, Senator McCain.
John McCain was rightly nominated by the Republican Party because he is a hero
and a patriot.Donald Trump who suggested McCain was a coward is
embarrassing himself. Mr. Trump, you think you are making America
great, sorry but that was John McCain and soldiers like him. Mr. Trump, you are
no John McCain.
I have never cared for McCain, but as he has aged, I find I care for him even
less. Mitt Romney bowed out of his first run for president, and supported
McCain, even raising money for him. Yet when Romney ran again, McCain said he
supported Romney, but did absolutely nothing to show that "support".
Furthermore, McCain fights with his own party, preventing them from getting
anything done, unless it is done his way. He has no diplomacy, no tact, no
ability to sway people to his positions, only a dogged determination to have his
own way. In short, he is more like Trump than anyone else in Congress, just not
aligned with Trump's agendas. In short, he is part of the problem in
McCain is the last of a rare breed of true public servants. Arizona citizens are
lucky to have had his service and leadership.
Not only do liberals (fake news, Hollywood, FBI leadership and every Democrat)
dispute the indisputable that the world and America are far better off since
Donald Trump took office, they attempt to diminish and re-define all of his
marvelous accomplishments. It’s not what he has done,
it’s WHO did it! If Obama had accomplished anything half as good as
President Trump, liberals would have his likeness carved on Mt. Rushmore! But
Donald Trump, the deplorable one? Donald Trump the Washington DC outsider, the
buffoon, the imposter, the one unlike us? Impossible, unacceptable, intolerable:
We will impeach him!But alas rational American voters and ever more
Americans who support President Trump will very likely elect him again and give
even more seats in Congress to the majority party!
I'm happy for him getting top-notch medical care. The best of luck to him.

Just so everyone knows, McCaindoes not speak for the vast majority of the
veterans. I myself am Marine, and I don't recall all the times that other
vets said the same thing Trump said. But I guess there is an appeal to
authority in this case.
For those who attack the GOP for being intolerant, take note. McCain is a
"maverick" in the GOP while Joe Liberman was run out of the Democrat
party on a rail for not walking lockstep there.Agree or disagree
with McCain, one does havr to ask whether he is giving his constituents the
representation they deserve and whether he can simultaneously give himself the
care and attention he deserves. Where some see devoted service to
the end, others might credibly see a refusal to give up power and prestige even
when their health dictates they should have gracefully stepped aside.
Thankfully, Utah has a convention system that allowed us to help Sen Bemnet keep
his promise not to serve another term. Had be been re-elected, he would have
still been in office as he became ill, was disabled, and passed. So much better
for him, his family, and the State of Utah for him not to be in office at that
I wish him all the best. While I often disagree with him, he has always
maintained his positions with dignity, intelligence and respect, and avoided the
vitriol and anger that now plagues his party.
People who say things like "McCain hates Trump more than he loves
America" represent a huge portion of what is wrong with our country these
days. It is not enough for them to disagree with another on a political issue,
they must also question the motives an impune the patriotism of those who differ
from them. This is usually done from afar, with no firsthand knowledge of the
person they are maligning.
@icemanRespectfully, I think you have the names reversed in your
comment. Trump, the draft dodger, cannot abide the presence of anyone who makes
him look bad. The fact that McCain is a war hero and refused an early release
from the Hanoi Hilton without his fellow inmates also being freed must
continually grate on Trump. His disdain for McCain was evidenced, of course, in
his odious comment about how McCain was a hero only because he was captured.
Khizr Khan, a Muslim immigrant whose American soldier son was killed in Iraq,
was correct in asserting that President Trump has sacrificed nothing and no one
for this country. People may disagree with McCain's political style, but
questioning his devotion to his country is ludicrous.
@ iceman96"McCain hates Trump more than he loves
America."It will be a sad day when McCain passes away. Even more
sad, however, will be the glee of anti-establishment Trump supporters when
reports come out about John McCain being in his final days. That glee will be
tough to swallow but it won't be unexpected.We are supposed to
be a country of compassion, decency, values, and laws. McCain has always echoed
those sentiments. He has championed his independence. He isn't
anyone's toady and he doesn't suck up to power. Those are
disqualifying attributes for the Trump wing of the Republican party. Being ostracized and even hated is part of the risk of going into politics.
When Trump mocked McCain's war hero status, he gave hatred a free pass.
It's so much better to salute North Korean military generals, isn't
McCain is a RINO and President Trump is the greatest threat to liberal
mind/crowd control, therefore they hate him! The once great and noble party of
JFK is lost, probably forever: Mired in socialism/communism, open borders,
every kind of extremism but mostly, hatred of traditional American values! "
I will fundamentally transform America"! Barack ObamaThis concludes
the lesson for today!
100 years from now, when most of today's politicians will be at most single
lines in dusty textbooks, children whose grandparents are not yet born will
learn of the hero aviator who, though enduring years of torture after having
been shot down, refused repatriation until all of his fellow prisoners were sent
home. And through it all he has maintained a sunny disposition, a warmth
of spirit, a sense of humor, and an unshakable dedication to this country he
loves so much. Thank you, Senator McCain; you have blessed us with your
presence in our land, and on this earth.
McCain opposes Trump because he loves America. McCain served. Trump went to a posh prep school and wore a uniform too gaudy for a
marching band and claimed it was like being in the military. McCain
is like every patriotic American who opposes Trump.
McCain hates Trump more than he loves America.
It is a honor watching Senator McCain put this beloved country above his lost
