Sen. John McCain said Thursday that he's worried about the Republican Party's future and the infighting that is dividing it, calling efforts by conservatives to unseat incumbent Republican lawmakers "wrong."
The famously wry McCain, R-Ariz., said he regretted calling the Tea Party wing of the Republican Senate conference "wacko birds" during budget negotiations, saying he's learned to "never get personal" in political disputes.
But McCain remains worried about the growing number of Republicans attacking members of their own party.
"I do worry about the Republican Party," he said at the Hero Summit hosted by The Daily Beast. "It's the first time I have ever seen Republican senators running ads, raising money that is being used to attack incumbent Republican senators."
Noting that Republican Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas recently drew a challenger from the Right, McCain asked, "Where has Pat Roberts offended anybody?"http://washingtonexaminer.com/article/2537088
Maybe John McCain is beginning to see how a large percentage of Americans feel about him.
