"Let's have a little straight talk, Martha," McCain said. "[The administration] wouldn't have had the opportunity to handle it that way if we had not shut down the government on a fool's errand that we were not going to accomplish. The whole premise of shutting down the government was the repeal of Obamacare. I fought against Obamacare harder than any of the people who wanted to shut down the government."

McCain's appearance on Fox came shortly after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the leader of the movement to defund the health care law, spoke at the Values Voter Summit. MacCallum asked McCain how he felt about Cruz "representing" Republicans at a meeting scheduled for Friday at the White House.

"First of all, Martha, please, he's not representing us there," McCain said, adding that he thinks it's "unconscionable" that President Obama hasn't negotiated with Republicans.

The interview closed with McCain rattling off a number of proposals that are "achievable" for Republicans.

"Defunding Obamacare is not one of them," he said emphatically.

"Well, we'll see," MacCallum said, prompting sarcastic laughter from the senator.

"I guarantee it," McCain said. "Not only will you see, I guarantee it."

Nothing new here. This, too, has been chewed up and spit back out.  Can't you find something original (though biased as is usual) to post?

I have tremendous respect for McCain as a military hero, but not much politically.

I can't get over how two faced this man has become. He lost to Obama so he figures he needs to join him instead of fighting for what he used to believe in? He may as well just stick a (D) next to his name now.

I guess we'll see.

If Obamacare gets defunded then he's an "dumb fucker".

If it doesn't, then surely that would make him a realist, who had a better grasp of what was achievable, and the current GOP strategy setters the "dumb fucker" ?


Of course, if he is a dumb fucker, what does that say about the GOP electorate for picking him as their candidate?  :-)

your last statement is so true and probably says the most about the GOP, they loved him when they thought he was the savior along with his sidekick dumbassshit, but now that he is trying to make some sense of this mess he is an idiot:/  They are to funny to watch or listen too.

 I agree.  McCain politically hasn't been very helpful to the Republican party.
