Rand Paul: We’re very lucky John McCain’s not in charge

By Alexander Bolton -

Sen. Rand Paul  (Ky.) ripped fellow Republican Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Sunday after McCain criticized President Trump’s escalating war of words with the media.  He argued that the nation is “very lucky” that Trump is president and not McCain, who won the 2008 GOP nomination but lost to Barack Obama  in the general election.  Paul said that McCain’s recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his “personal dispute” with the president over foreign policy........To Read More.....

My Take - This whole clabber about Trump becoming a dictator by suppressing the press is a logical fallacy.  Trump has browbeat the press and it must be working because they never stop talking about it, and before this term is over they'll be whipped into place.  But he's done nothing to "oppress" the press, and that "dictator" comment is another logical fallacy. 

And Trump is right.  The media is dangerous to the nation.  The media is - overall - largely anti-gun, anti-Christian, anti-capitalism and anti-America, but they never saw a wacko left wing philosophy they didn't love.  If they can dish it out they've got to learn to take it. 

As for McCain - he's a disgrace and has been for years.  I fear most have forgotten his part in the Lincoln Savings and Loan scandal and the Keating Five.  What I wonder about is what's wrong with the minds of the people of Arizona who keep on electing him.  McCain is a old fool that never saw a microphone or a camera he didn't love, and since this most likely is his last term as - he will be 86 when this term is over - he will say and do things that are going to shock everyone. 

Having once been a hero doesn't give you a pass on the rest of life.
