McCain Calls Ted Cruz “Crazy”

Senators John McCain and Ted Cruz represent polar opposites of the modern Republican Party. While the former is eager to capitulate, the latter stands firm on his principles and continually represents his conservative constituents admirably.

As Cruz’s political star rises, McCain finds himself more irrelevant than ever. In response, the elderly Arizona senator keeps adding an extra measure of vitriol into his already heated rhetoric by trashing his younger counterpart at every opportunity.

McCain’s latest attack on the junior senator from Texas came Thursday, when he blamed Cruz for causing last month’s federal government shutdown.

With hostility obvious in his tone, McCain told attendees at a forum that “shutting down the government injured people in my state!”

Trashing Cruz for keeping his promise to fight ObamaCare, McCain pinned the blame on him rather than the Obama administration responsible for forcing the unpopular law onto the nation.

“I have to say, ‘Stop! You’re wrong; you’re crazy!” McCain yelled. “That’s what I have to say and if I sound angry, it’s because I have met and talked to constituents of mine who are on minimum wage who had to resort to food banks.”

What he fails to realize, however, is that the increased premiums associated with ObamaCare will cause far more long-term and irreparable economic damage to the working class than a two-week shutdown that affected a very small minority of Americans.

Few expect McCain to call out Democrat leaders in any meaningful way, though, because he is much safer politically in demonizing the Tea Party and conservative figures like Cruz. He seems perfectly content being the left’s favorite Republican.

Cruz, on the other hand, could not care less what politicians who want to destroy this nation think of him. He has been focused on keeping his promises and fighting for America’s founding principles.

If that constitutes “crazy” in McCain’s world, it seems Cruz fits the bill.

    I am part of McCain's constituency. First of all I am sorry. I voted for him. He rides his war records but does not represent his voters. My vote is for Ted Cruz for Senator of Arizona. We want his leadership. He understands fiduciary responsibility and morals. McCain is pro-left all the way. He has come to be the very definition of the acronym RINO. We he voted for EDNA I sent him an email saying that I and my family will never give him another vote. Kick this Obamaite out of Congress and give us someone who will represent the people. Cruz didn't shut down the government, Obama did by refusing to negotiate which is a principle duty of one in his office.

    • I am also part of McCain's constituency, and promise to never vote for him again …. even if it for dog catcher. He is no longer mentally stable, and pays no attention to his folks back here in Arizona. He is out for the interest of McCain, to heck with the rest of us. can't agree more with David Mumme comments.

  3. McCain is crazy if he believes conservatives pay any attention to him any more.
