McCain can be infuriating, running to the conservative side before reelection in Arizona then running to his Dem friends’ side when he’s reelected. Don’t forget: In the MSM only Republicans need to cooperate with Dems to be patted on the head and proclaimed “bipartisan,” because the media never expect Dems to be bipartisan.
But John McCain is a tiger when it comes to the military/national security and he has a strong sense of honor. Sen Dick Durbin [D-IL] insulted McCain and the GOP when he characterized the delay in the Loretta Lynch confirmation vote as racist, sexist, and making “her sit at the back of the bus.” The delay is strictly upon the heads of Dems who haven’t voted upon the sex trafficking bill currently before them. Majority Leader Sen Mitch McConnell clearly stated the Lynch confirmation voting would follow the sex trafficking bill, but Dems have gotten caught up in a part of the bill involving reaffirmation of the Hyde amendment, which forbids tax monies on abortions, with exceptions for rape, incest, and health of the mother.
It’s obvious Lynch is simply Eric Holder in drag so the GOP have nothing to lose here, which is why the increasingly desperate Dems resort to the tired, worn Race Card. Reid provided cover for Obama and the Senate Dems when he was Majority Leader by failing to bring numerous bills up for a vote, votes that would have compromised vulnerable Dems, and instead allowed Obama to blame the do-nothing Congress and obstructionist Republicans, ignoring that Dems controlled the Senate. The MSM played along.
