Railing against Don't Ask Don't Tell, shooting down an immigration bill he once sponsored, pushing his own changes to START--the tougher John McCain who emerged in the primaries may be here to stay.

Like this is going to make us like him more if he's tougher? I WOULD like him more if he just left the political field and retired to say, Argentina....

Oh I do agree, Arielle - or maybe farther south. I think he figured out he can't win the liberal or independent vote so why not be the darling of the wing nuts. Let's see he hates the idea of DADT the dream act (he helped to write) is screaming about START though admits he has not read it - had it since April, John. Maybe the old boy has gone 'round the bend. He really makes no sense and does seem pathetic.

START is dangerous because we only have enough nukes to blow up the world a few times. So silly it's embarrassing - how can we expect the world to see us as leaders at all.

This is not tough this is pathetic, he flounders around looking for something to take a stand on that will bring more wing nuts to his side. Poor ole thing, he's still pissed about the election and is trying to get even. Way past time to retire old man.

I agree, I have great respect for the man and his service but he needs to retire.

I'm almost embarrassed for him - he's so obviously this disgruntled, angry old fart - you'd think those who still care about him would muffle him just to avoid having him look so crazy.

Strange that they [fellow republicans] do not point out to him that he appears foolish, but maybe declining his changes to the START treaty are an effort to make it clear to him that his ideas are just not helpful.

One of the reasons he lost in 2008 is because he is a RINO

McCain is displaying many of the symptoms of some sort of senile dementia.

He does seem to fit that scenario. With people of wealth and power there is often no one who can or will
speak honestly with them. Apparently he is at odds with his own family.

Noted, thanks Kit. Farther south than Argentina would be good.

Tougher? John McCain seems to be regressing into a PTSD RepubliCON - channeling Reagan AND Khrushchev at the same time..:(

I wish he and Sarah Palin would both just drift off into the sunset somewhere.

Ol John has bad wiring going on in his head...lost of burnt out and or short ciruits happening it appears to me each time he says anything. One day soon he'll probably wake up and ask where he mom is as he needs a ride to school or some such lost in space moment for him.

He has the old "lapses in the synapses" syndrome.

The major problem is his seems to be permanent. Most people heal after a short time following any sort of trauma.

Thanks for the entertaining comments here! He is one of those people you automatically feel sorry for and repulsed at the same time.

I used to like him when he was a war hero, having returned from years in captivity, staying with his men when he was offered an out. He used to be on the correct side of some issues and was a little bit mavericky according to the values of very conservative people. But then came the election in 2008 and he chose an idiot for VP. Whoa, he began not to believe himself! I'm sure he blew his own mind and hasn't been able to find it since.

There was one moment when someone respectable showed up in his body... It was when he gave the concession speech to the newly elected Barack Obama. He was gentlemanly and gracious. He said the new President was HIS president also. It was the best concession speech I've ever heard, I think.

And then the sun came up again and his mind retired for the rest of the Congressional sessions. He voted against himself and lost both ends of the deal! What a waste of a war hero. He should have retired to the farm before he bought it.

I'm looking forward to Kathy Bates on NBC in January, in "Harry's Law." Now there's a stand-up gal!

John McCain used to be the Republican that moderates liked and liberals could sort of tolerate. Now he is a big old joke. He wanted to be prez before he got too old so bad it broke him and he has been more bitter and more foolish every month since. Downhill slide!

McCain has been widely disliked by the crazy-right of the Republican party for years for being too 'centrist'.

Limbaugh spent a WEEK railing against him after he won the Florida primaries in 2008. Looks like he realized there is no future for 'moderate' Republicans, so he might as well get on board with the militant crazies!

McCain had my respect at one time. However, as a mother of a Vet, I found that McCain for all his talk about supporting our troops has voted against them time and time again. He talks out of both sides of his mouth so I have lost all respect for him. He doesn't sound tough to me. Just angry, petty and irrational.

Having Palin as a running mate would make anyone crazy, cranky and bitter!

His hypocrisy is showing. Say what ever is what your audience wants to hear. How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving.

Some people just don't know how to let go. He lost the election, he needs to get over it and move on! I think deep inside he knows that he's out of touch with reality and no longer relevant (not that he really ever was to begin with) and that whatever higher political aspirations and agendas he has probably won't ever materialize. (Which is a good thing for us).

Oh my word.. he forgot his prozac this morning... he definitely is one sandwich short of a picnic... and needs to get a life outta politics

I find this man so sad. He was a good guy, endured horrible torture in a North Vietnamese prison and came home a hero. Then he got into politics and we all know what that leads to. Allying with Palin must have been the final bit of torture that made him break.

NE L spins: /"One of the reasons he lost in 2008 is because he is a RINO "

Actually, the opposite is true. He was at that point still considered a moderate, and most moderates either stayed home or voted for Obama. The far-right social-conservative wing of the GOP has always hated him for being too moderate. Now, it would appear he is finally catering to their lunacy.
