Another reason why McCain wasn't elected President. He was too willing to compromise and give in to the Dems..and he fails to understand the anger that America has with his and his friends meddling with our freedoms, and security. He still doesn't get it. We are mad as hell, and politicians with no spine to stand up for the Constitution just aren't loved nor respected.

Arizona Senator John McCain apparently didn't think calling Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz "whacko birds" was enough. Over the weekend McCain said he just doesn't "understand" why GOP Senators would filibuster any type of gun control legislation, saying the Senate should at least have debate on the issue.

"I don't understand it," the Arizona Republican said on Sunday of the threat coming from Sen. Rand Paul,Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Mike Lee and nine other Republicans. "The purpose of the United States Senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand.”
