John Mc Cain has been in the Senate since 1982. Think about that. I was a junior in college, I’m 57 now. The world has changed but I do not think Mc Cain has very much. A liberal guy for five and a half years, then he goes back to Arizona, talks tough, gets re elected , goes back Washington and does the same liberal crap all over again. Mc Cain, an Annapolis grad, like his dad, was captured in Vietnam, some of actions since, some of his statements and some of his voting history, I begin to wonder if part of his mind was left in Nam. This is a guy who let down the party by running a very weak campaign against a very weak man and candidate, Barack Hussein Obama. You may recall, he quit campaigning to go back to Washington to piece back the budget crises. Wow, I am touched! He ended up getting beaten badly by Obama, letting him win the presidency, something that should never have happened.
The fact is that guy’s like Mc Cain should have been put to pasture years ago. Arizona is a conservative state and could easily get a true conservative in there, ( Remember Goldwater?) Why has Mc Cain stayed? Why does he keep getting elected? A liberal Republican from Arizona? It is time for term limits, to get rid of the freeloaders like Mc Cain, Sanders, Pelosi and company. Let’s get fresh ideas in there, new people, out with Chuck Schummer, out with Mitch Mc Connell. They all have been playing the game for to long and need to get off the gravie train.
Mc Cain has been attacking Trump, like Lindsey Graham has since Trump took office. We don’t need Republicans like these, Graham and Mc Cain are too ensconced in the Washington club, to close too Democrats to now make a difference. Term limits could eliminate this because people would not have the time to fully understand how this Washington game is played. When you get career politicians in there for so long, you get too many John Mc Cain’s.

Washington (AFP) – Veteran US Senator John McCain is to deliver a “no-holds-barred” verdict on his fellow Republican Donald Trump’s presidency in a new book of memoirs, his publishers announced Monday.
Despite being in the same party as the president, McCain has been one of Trump’s most forceful critics over the last two years, both in the run-up to the 2016 election and its aftermath.
Although he has been undergoing treatment for brain cancer since last summer, McCain has continued to voice his concerns about Trump’s leadership and recently questioned the nomination of a CIA official once involved in torture to lead the spy agency.
“Candid, pragmatic and always fascinating, John McCain holds nothing back in his latest memoir” which is entitled “The Restless Wave” and will be released on May 22, according to the publishers Simon & Schuster.
The book will begin with McCain’s recollections of his unsuccessful run against Barack Obama in the 2008 election as well as his time in the Senate during his Democrat rival’s eight years in office.
He will then “share his experiences during the divisive 2016 election and his no-holds-barred opinions on the current developments coming out of Washington,” said the publishing house.
Following a barrage of criticism from McCain during the 2016 election, Trump snapped that the former Vietnamese prisoner of war was “not a war hero,” adding that “I like people who weren’t captured.”
McCain was a major thorn in the side of Trump’s first year in office and effectively sank his attempts to scrap Obama’s health care plan by voting against repeal soon after being diagnosed with cancer.
While McCain has not been seen in public for some months, his daughter Meghan said last week that she was optimistic that her father would be back in the Senate by the summer.
McCain was first elected as a senator representing the southern state of Arizona back in 1982.
