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?"

Maybe John McCain is beginning to see how a large percentage of Americans feel about him.

Sounds like 'crazy McCain' is feeling the heat. When he says he is worried about the 'Republican Party' of course he is talking about the ingrained entrenched GOP establishment. He is worried about himself and his network of Liberal Pubs. This is a good thing. We are winning, and he knows it.


Hey McCain, isn't there a war somewhere you should be advocating and lobbying for?

Hope I'm still alive when he gets retired by the voters.   :patriot:

John could help by announcing his retirement.
The spoils system has treated him well.
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.
