'I will say to my friends who were objecting to this – and there are a number of them on my side – you can call yourself Republicans; that’s fine because that’s your voter registration. Don’t call yourself Reagan Republicans. Ronald Reagan would never – would never – let this kind of aggression go responded to by the American people.'
- Senator John McCain, Senate floor, 14 March 2014
Fuck off and die already, Insane McVain. It is the IMF ‘fix’ that is irrelevant to the Ukrainian aid package, which has already been passed by the House. It was the White House that insisted on the IMF ‘fix’ being attached. Obama has been trying to get it through since 2010 to no avail. He figured that he would attach it to the Ukraine package because no way people like you would say no and, right on cue, you stand up and condemn your own party. He plays you like a Stradivarius.
You are a disgrace and I truly wish that you would either retire or die. You are vile and make me physically ill. I am absolutely disgusted every time I hear your name or see your face.
You are not content only to be a nasty piece of work either. You have to be a dead wrong one, too.
A history lesson courtesy of Dan Drezner:
Daniel W. Drezner @dandreznerIt's true, kids. When Poland cracked down on Solidarity, Reagan immediately dispatched the 82nd Airborne to Warsaw. Wait... #ReaganFPDaniel W. Drezner @dandreznerIt's true, kids. When the Soviets shot down KAL 007, Reagan immediately tightened CoCom sanctions against the USSR. Wait... #ReaganFPDaniel W. Drezner @dandreznerIt's true, kids. When terrorists seized TWA flight 847, Reagan absolutely refused to negotiate the release of hostages. Wait... #ReaganFPDaniel W. Drezner @dandreznerIt's true, kids. When Hezbollah took U.S. citizens hostage and then suicide-bombed Marines, Reagan stood firm in Beirut. Wait... #ReaganFPDaniel W. Drezner @dandreznerIt's true, kids. My point with the #ReaganFP tweets is not to bash Reagan. My point is that Reagan would've bashed Russia on Crimea and then... tolerated it.
Can anyone envision Ronald Reagan arm-in-arm with al-Qaeda-affiliated jihadists?
'The United States must look beyond Mr. Putin. His regime may appear imposing, but it is rotting inside. His Russia is not a great power on par with America. It is a gas station run by a corrupt, autocratic regime. And eventually, Russians will come for Mr. Putin in the same way and for the same reasons that Ukrainians came for Viktor F. Yanukovych.'
- Senator John McCain, Obama Has Made America Look Weak, The New York Times, 14 March 2014
Well, then, that settles it. ‘President’ Putin will die an old man and receive a state funeral on a scale approaching that given to Kim Jong-il. McCain is becoming as good a prognosticator as Biden. Unfortunately, McCain doesn't even have Biden's 'Aw shucks and malarkey' charm. He's just an angry, spiteful, resentful, vain, and hateful person, who reserves his most vicious venom for those that are, obstensibly, on his 'side.'
It's unbelievable that he was the presidential nominee of any major American political party only 6 years ago.
Sir, you are no Ronald Reagan.
