From Right Scoop:
Yes, I know John McCain is a registered Republican. But in the video below he sounds like a slimy Democrat the way he attacks Ted Cruz over a political point he was making.
In his big CPAC speech, Ted Cruz said the following:
You want to lose elections? Stand for nothing. Look at the last four congressional elections, in ’06, ’08, ’10′, and ’12. In 3 of the four we followed that strategy. In ‘06, ‘08 and ‘12, we put our head down, we stood for nothing and we got walloped.
And of course then all of us remember President Dole, and President McCain, and President Romney. Now look those are good men, those are decent men — but when you don’t stand and draw a clear distinction, when you don’t stand for principle, Democrats celebrate.
McCain went on MSNBC today and said that Ted Cruz crossed a line and should apologize to Bob Dole:
He can say what he wants to about me, and he can say anything he wants to, I think, about Mitt – Mitt’s capable of taking it. But when he throws Bob Dole in there, I wonder if he thinks that Bob Dole stood for principle on that hilltop in Italy when he was so gravely wounded and left part of his body there fighting for our country?
Ted Cruz was not talking about Dole’s military service and McCain knows it. Cruz was talking about his political campaign for president.
Talk about crossing the line. This is another reason McCain has to go. He’s been hanging around and been chummy with Democrats for so long that he sound exactly like them. And he votes like them too.
