  1. I saw a question a while ago asking “Who are people who lived long enough to ruin their own legacy?” I wrote a long answer about John McCain, but realized it put him in the same bin as Benedict Arnold, so never posited it.

    But that in a nutshell is my opinion of John McCain.

    As all the answers above point out, John McCain was nothing short of heroic in his military service, and in particular his conduct as a POW. No one can take that away from him.

    However, as a Presidential candidate he was another beige middle of the road blob of nothingness. Some say he was great for taking the high road and refusing to stand up for himself. He was weak, and has to take responsibility for his role in handing the nation to a Leftist ideologue.

    But his hatred and jealousy toward President Trump has ruined his legacy.

    I get it. You’re a political insider, a one-man dynasty. A war hero and son of a great Navy Admiral. You’ve been in Congress FOREVER, and it’s your turn to be President — but you failed miserably, let down the Party and the American people.

    Then this outspoken outlandish NYC businessman walks over all your best buddies in the primaries. Gains the Republican nomination, and wins the unwinnable general election over an establishment candidate who is JUST LIKE YOU.

    That probably feels pretty crappy.

    Now, not only has McCain betrayed his Arizona constituents by campaigning on “repeal and replace”, then voting against it. But he betrayed his party by promising the vote, then flipping at the last minute.

    His only reason for voting against repeal and replace was his jealousy and distaste for the President. He let petty personal problems take precedent over the good of the Nation.

    Remember too, McCain worked with the Obama administration in delivering the Steele dossier to the FBI. He was part of the Obama/Clinton DOJ FBI conspiracy to overthrow the will of the people and gift the Presidency to Hillary Clinton.

    McCain’s aid traveled to Canada to obtain the fake dossier from a Fusion GPS representative. This is the opposition research started by the Jeb! campaign, and handed off to Hillary for America when Jeb’s $150 million dollars failed to get his foot in the door.

    Clinton and the DNC paid $14 million for this “research”, and Obama used it to launch investigations against the Trump campaign.

    There are new email revelations proving McCain was involved in encouraging IRS Director Lois Learner to stop grassroots fundraising groups who opposed Obama in the 2012 election.

    This is not just my opinion of John McCain. I’ve seen the way chatrooms erupt whenever he’s mentioned on the news. The people HATE McCain. That “he’s dying anyway” comment was mild compared to what I’ve seen written about him. Petty, pathetic, traitor, and worst of all “Democrat” have been bandied about when referring to the man now known as “McTumor”.

    I don’t agree with the “traitor” moniker, nor calls for him to “die already”. “McTumor” is just mean. But my point is, that he’s destroyed his own legacy just to satisfy his petty jealousy and covetous nature toward the presidency.
