John McCain: Isn’t about time for him to retire?

If anyone ever put the “E” in “establishment GOP”, it is John McCain.  “Maverick” my rear end.  He’s the archtypical establishment Republican and as such, he’s a member of a group that is almost as bad as the Democrats.

The House passed a bill to defund that abomnination called “ObamaCare”, a travesty foisted upon the public by the Democrats.  Republicans, McCain included, decried the bill, decried the money it would cost and frankly said they’d stop it if they could.

That was then, this is now.  Apparently you’re not supposed to remember all that rhetoric, and if you do, you weren’t supposed to believe it.

So, speaking of “now”, this his how the old lady of the establishment GOP is addressing an opportunity in the Senate to try to defund ObamaCare:

In the United States Senate, we will not repeal, or defund, Obamacare. We will not. And to think we can is not rational. I will again state unequivocally that this is not something that we can succeed in, and that’s defunding Obamacare, because we don’t have 67 Republican votes in the Senate, which would be required to override a presidential veto.

So they won’t even try – which is essentially what he’s saying.  They won’t bother to make the symbolic attempt and build a ground swell for it’s eventual defunding or, perhaps, enable an GOP candidate to build a campaign on the attempt.  They won’t try to pass it make the President veto it.

Nope.  It’s not ‘rational’.

And you wonder why there’s a Democrat in the White House right now?

All I have to say is this brings in focus how awful a choice the people of the United States had in 2008.
