Sen. John McCain is in a battle for his Senate seat in Arizona against J.D. Hayworth. He is having to defend his action for voting in favor of the 700 Billion Troubled Asset Relief Program, otherwise known as T.A.R.P. to growing pressure from the Conservatives and Tea Party goers.
McCain has responded from the criticism that he has received and is receiving from Conservative and Tea Party goers who view his actions as the same as that of Obama and the Progressives from both the left and the right. He attempts to justify his vote by stating how he was misled by then Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who had decided during that critical time that they needed to stabilize Wall Street, A.I.G, G.M.,and Chrysler, and eventually that it would trickle down, and everything would be fine.
Now a year and some months later , the economy is still in shambles, the American people are mad as hell, and John McCain is in a fight to keep the Senate seat he now occupies. What McCain and other Republican Progressives don’t seem to understand is, that Conservatives don’t want politicians that go along to get along just to get re-elected. That is why he finds himself in a battle, like his good friend from Florida Governor Charlie Crist, who is trailing Marco Rubio by 18 points in the latest Rasmussen poll for the Republican Senate Primary.
What John McCain should do is step down, and save himself from further embarrassment and allow us to remember him for his honorable service in the military as well for enduring being a prisoner of war. In my mind I will remember him for the fiasco of stopping his campaign to go to Washington only than to vote the same way as Obama, in favor of bailing out Wall Street.
Former Treasury Secretary Paulson in his new book, is also criticizing John McCain, who on Sept. 24, 2008, temporarily suspended his presidential campaign to go to Capitol Hill to confront the economic crisis. He calls McCain impulsive, risky, and even dangerous. Now it’s obvious why Paulson, a crook would write a book. That’s what they seem to all do these days.
Sen. McCain last month in a last-ditch effort to show himself to be in-touch with Conservatives, voted against confirming Ben Bernanke for a second term as Federal Reserves Chairman. Bernanke was confirmed for a second term, because our politician just don’t get it! All this is, to little and to late for McCain. In my opinion he should spend his remaining golden years, out in sunny Arizona, attending to his wife’s and her beer business. Before he continues to pretend to be a Conservative only to the detriment of true Conservative who sees his ways as being the same as those from the left that call themselves Progressives.
