    From his actions since I have to agree.

    He is however a skilled rhetorician.

    On that I disagree. Sometimes it's hard to tell a sneaky person from an intelligent one until you actually listen to what they have to say. Intelligent people don't have to be sneaky.

    McCain has all time low approval ratings from the voters of his own party, the president, and probably members of his own peers within the chambers of the Senate.

    The only "high" support ratings he has is from, you guessed it... Democrats.

    Thanks to this loser, we had 8 years of Obama because he's not a true Republican.

    How did McCain lead to 8 years of Obama? At best, I can see claiming it led to 4 of those years......

    If McCain lost because he is not a true Republican, does that mean Trump won because he is a true Republican?

    If Obama lost, he would've given up after the first time.

    And yes, right side (including myself) don't want a "Republican" in office who secretly wants to be a Democrat.

    Senator McCain is doing great harm to his legacy and it's sad to watch. He is angry at the president and it is at a fever pitch. Senator McCain has more to lose than Trump. I wish he could see that.
