McCain Apologizes For Calling Rand Paul, Ted Cruz ‘Wacko Birds’ On Fox News: ‘That Was Inappropriate’

by Matt Wilstein | 5:02 pm, March 15th, 2013

Friday afternoon on Fox News, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) delivered his first on-camera apology to his Senate colleagues Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) for calling them “wacko birds” in an interview with The Huffington Post following Paul’s filibuster.

Responding to a question from Neil Cavuto about his recent confrontations with the younger generation of his party, McCain offered a humble and sincere apology. “In an interview I said that Senator Paul and Senator Cruz were ‘wacko birds,’” he said. “That was inappropriate. I apologize to them for saying that because I respect them both. I respect what they stand for and what they believe in.”

Tying the spat into the larger issues of national security and military spending, McCain added, “but I believe we live in a very dangerous world. And I think the sequestration is outrageous.” He said he sees Paul and Cruz as having a “very different view” of those threats.

“That was inappropriate. I apologize to them for saying that because I respect them both. I respect what they stand for and what they believe in.”


The first sentence was correct, it was inappropriate (but it was clearly how he really feels). The latter is a bunch of bullshit. He doesn't respect them or he would have never called them wackos. Cheney probably told him he had to apologize :D

But glad to see he's feeling the heat from even Limbaugh. Neocons are:

Is anyone else sick of these public apologies? These clowns just shoot off their irresponsible mouths, and then pretend they didn't mean it.


McCain offered a humble and sincere apology.

Nice editorializing.


Tying the spat into the larger issues of national security and military spending, McCain added, “but I believe we live in a very [very] dangerous world.

Thanks, in part, to you neo-Trots.

From the vid:


Ronald Reagan believed in peace through strength.

Once again (http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?407149-A-Battle-for-the-Soul-of-the-Party-The-GOP-Divide-on-Militarism), that doesn't mean what you neo-Trots like to think it means.


The most preposterous thing...is McCain’s insistence that he believes in “peace through strength,” which is what every hawkish interventionist says when he won’t or can’t defend his real policy views. If he believed in “peace through strength,” he wouldn’t be constantly trying to find reasons for the U.S. to start or join wars. The reality is that his preferred foreign policy is one of exhausting strength through constant warfare (http://www.theamericanconservative.com/larison/mccain-who-are-you-calling-an-interventionist/comment-page-1/).

Exactly. The apology was good until he flat out lied. In his apology he says he respects them and their views. That's complete bs. Way too make everyone hate you even more McCain. Can't even tell the truth in an apology.

If there's one thing that rank and file republicans agree on it's that spending must be cut by any means necessary. That includes sequestration if it comes to that.

HotAir's Allahpundit shares his wisdom on this... interesting comments about Cruz which links to this article (http://www.theamericanconservative.com/larison/ted-cruzs-foreign-policy-and-the-paul-demint-caucus/)

-
The key bit comes at 2:00. We all knew McCain was taking a lot of heat politically for dumping on Paul after his filibuster but I never would have guessed it was enough to squeeze an apology out of him. Good lord. How many times in his life, do you suppose, has Maverick apologized to a libertarian? Either he’s planning to run again for Senate in 2016 and wants to hedge his bets against a Paulian primary uprising in Arizona or he’s come to his senses and realized that his nastiness is doing the interventionist cause more harm than good. Either way, it’s time for a tactical retreat.

By the way, am I misunderstanding or does he seem to think Ted Cruz, like Paul, is some sort of isolationist? I’m … not sure why. There was no one in the Senate, McCain included, who was tougher on Chuck Hagel than Cruz. When the Washington Free Beacon asked him to explain, Cruz said it’s because Hagel “has repeatedly been soft on our enemies.” Paleocons have also noticed that Cruz, despite often being lumped in with Paul on foreign policy, sounds plenty hawkish on Iran. Maverick’s likely concluded that because Cruz and Paul both speak frequently about the tea party and the Constitution and because Cruz was, after all, Paul’s wingman during the drone filibuster that they’re simpatico on foreign policy, but I suspect that’s untrue. In fact, Cruz and Paul seem to me to represent the two sides of the tea-party coin. From the beginning, Ron Paul fans have insisted that he’s the “godfather” of the movement; there are certainly tea partiers, especially the younger set, who are doctrinaire libertarians and whom Rand is trying to mobilize. But there’s another wing, which skews a bit older, that’s composed of more traditional conservatives — hawkish, concerned about “values” — who are disaffected with the GOP leadership’s squishiness and looking to rebrand themselves. The two wings overlap on spending, the core tea-party concern, and on stricter observance of constitutional limits on government, but they diverge on social issues and on foreign policy. Cruz was an ally of Paul’s during the drone debate because of that constitutional overlap, and of course because it was a chance to rebuke Obama. If a bill hit the floor tomorrow authorizing military action against Iran, though, I’m a lot less confident than Maverick that Cruz would end up on Paul’s side rather than on McCain’s and Rubio’s. We’ll find out…

Paul used to be synonymous with extreme and fringe. Now the Paul name is synonymous with fresh ideas and the future of the party.

It's weird how good Ted Cruz is on civil liberties, but espouses hawkish rhetoric on foreign policy. There's probably no doubt that Cruz has more hawkish views than Rand and Ron, Mike Lee, but I really doubt he's a complete interventionist.

How hot ? USS Forrestal heat hot yet McShame ?


'Wet-starts', done either deliberately
(the starter motor switch allowed kerosene to pool in the engine and give a wet start)
or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft.

In McCain's case, the 'wet-start' 'cooked off' and launched the M34 Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that punctured the Skyhawk's fuel tank, knocked the M-65 1000 lb. bomb off it's 500 lb. rated mount, and touched off the explosions and massive fire of the USS Forrestal on 29 July 1967

jpg editted in soon heres caption
Description: XA4D-1 Skyhawk BuNo 137812 experiencing a wet start
(note the pool of JP4 on the ground and the tongue of flame from the tailpipe).

'Wet starting' was a common practice among young 'hot-dog' pilots.
McCain was quickly transferred to the USS Oriskany - they were still counting the Forrestal dead . . .
John McCain was the only Forrestal crewman to be immediately transferred.

a coverup McCain . . . damn straight !

Yeah, but to be fair, there usually aren't many alternatives. Plus, the McShame crew has a lot more money, influence, and fundraising power than any of his opponents that I've seen. There are always several viable alternatives, but you know how it goes. :P If Constitutionalists would get serious and strike out direct election of senators, I reckon McCain would have been de-elected quite a while ago. Popular election of Senators has made SUCH a mess of things. :P

Politically motivated. He will enjoy his power as long as he has it, he will spend money as long as he breathes, he will collect from the MIC as long as he can do their bidding. And I doubt he'll retire any more than Robert Byrd did. They'll cart him out of the Senate chamber in a box.

Yeah, I noticed he was talking about himself and his career in the past tense.

He still clearly doesn't like or agree with Rand's views. But it was a good apology... I appreciate he brought up the Taft wing and how this is a long debate that's been going on since WWI, and that it is a debate that will likely continue, and is about America's role in the world. In saying this, he conceded it's not just about drones, but part of a larger issue and debate.

Maybe he should've just stuck with his original remarks.

He should have. That, at least, would have been honest. (But McCain is not an honest man.)

His apology was bullshit. It is not worth the spit behind it.

The only thing he's sorry about is all the full-in-the-face blowback he's caught over his remarks.

His "apology" was no more sincere than Janet Reno's "taking of responsibility" for Waco ...
