John McCain: His Greatest Strength Now Denied–What A Sad Commentary! :(

Arizona Senator John McCain has been in the Senate now for 24 years, and has long had a reputation as a “maverick”.

But now he is denying this reality, even though he has often called himself that, said so in his memoirs, and emphasized it in his 2008 Presidential campaign.

And to top it off, his Vice Presidential running mate, Sarah Palin, came to Arizona to campaign for him, and called him a maverick just ten days ago!

But McCain is running scared, as he faces a right wing challenge from former Congressman J. D. Hayworth in the GOP primary, and is opposed by Tea Party activists.

So McCain is trying to change his image, but in the process he is repudiating much of what he believed in and advocated for the past 24 years!

He has always been someone who people respected, even if they did not agree with him. But now he just looks like a typical image of a politician–untrustworthy, dishonorable, unprincipled! Really, he has become a shell of his old self, and that is truly sad! 🙁

The likelihood is that he will lose his Senate nomination nevertheless, but even if he wins the nomination and defeats his Democratic opponent in November, how would he be able to restore the dignity and stature that he once had? 🙁

McCain is selling out for another term as a United States Senator! Is being reelected that important, that he is willing to destroy everything he ever believed in? 🙁 What a sad state of affairs, much to be regretted! 🙁

    I don’t think McCain was referring to himself being a Maverick, I think it was within the commentary of always going against the party. I think he looked at himself as someone who just didn’t go along with things because everyone else did. But the Maverick has sort of been turned into him being some sort of wild rogue politician, and if you read the interview that’s what he’s talking about.

    We could have a much bigger problem- look who the guy is running against McCain! We all watched JD make a complete fool of himself in Washington as a legislator. Arizona and this Nation cannot afford for JD to go back to Washington. JD likes earmarks, JD was a porkbarrel spender, JD lost his seat to a DEM b/c of his corrupt behavior! At least McCain is strong against spending, strong against big government and stands up for our Nation’s security…
