John McCain surfaced long enough to throw a few more harpoons at the Republican Conservatives with his endorsement of Mitch McConnell and the so-called ‘gang of six’. John has had experience with gangs, remember? It’s easy to see that McCain is as wrong-headed on this as he is on illegals.
His mantra in an interview he did on Sean Hannity’s radio program was “We don’t have the votes, we don’t have the votes”. Please, John… you’re really peeing on the parade. Be like the ‘Old Soldier’ and ‘just fade away’.
In fact, Republicans and a few Democrat allies in the Senate came within three Democrat votes of passing the bill. With the economy in shambles it should be possible to turn some of the Democrat Senators that are facing re-election… instead of having our efforts scattered all over hell n’ gone with self-seeking RINO politicians showboating with harebrained schemes, which only work to further the shadow of Marxist domination over this country.
All I know is that my state, my county, my city and my friends are hurting. I don’t know of one person or family who has not been impacted by the wildly irresponsible spending gorge that Obama’s government has orchestrated. People go around with worried expressions. They aren’t spending any more money than they absolutely have to. They plan their trips, even around town, to use the least amount of fuel possible.
People are hoarding food… this isn’t like the millennium. People see what’s going on or, more precisely, what isn’t going on in this country, and they are very worried and are being even more conservative about the way they lead their day to day lives.
The word out here is ‘no more taxes… no debt increase‘.
For us, 2012 just can’t come fast enough.
