    Obamacare could easily have come from the Republicans. They just hated it because Obama did it.

    Amnesty? Didn't Reagan have an amnesty in 1986? Oh, yeah, he did.

    So, Reagan isn't good enough to be Republican either?

    I never liked Reagan no. He also signed gun control laws. McAmnesty was the very definition of a RINO...good riddance.

    Well, a lot of the people who are criticizing McCain, loved Reagan.

    McCain had a great life

    He died as one of our great statesmen and one of our greatest Senators
    Sadly, McCain was one of the last of his kind. A Senator who would cross the aisle to work out deals, a Senator who voted for what he thought was right, a true Maverick

    Democrats respected him for it......Republicans hated him

    I will try to go to McCain funeral.
    “The nation mourns the loss of a great American patriot, a statesman who put his country first and enriched this institution through many years of service. The Senate is keeping Cindy, the McCain family, all John’s friends and staff, and the people of Arizona in our prayers at this tremendously difficult time,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement confirming the senator would lie in state at the U.S. Capitol. “I appreciate my colleagues and the entire Senate and House family’s assistance with this honor.

    Great post...except, I don't think all Reps hated him...just the Trumpbots and the really weak Reps who don't want to piss off Trumpbots.
    Of course, sadly, that is a LOT of Reps.
    Maybe your post is more accurate then I first thought.
