 McCain: I Won't Run for President Again
Monday, March 10, 2014 07:02 PM

By: Greg Richter

Arizona Sen. John McCain says he will not seek the Republican nomination for president again.

"Oh, I'm too . . . I'm afraid it's not a viable option," McCain, 77, said Monday on Fox Business Network's "Cavuto."

He is, however, "seriously considering" another run for his Senate seat, which he's held since 1987.

McCain said that despite a vote of disapproval from the Arizona GOP that he isn't conservative enough, "I can sense the people of my state.... They like me, and I'm very grateful."

McCain was the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, but lost to then-Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas rebuked losing GOP nominees such as McCain, Mitt Romney and Bob Dole in a CPAC speech last week, saying they lost because they didn’t' stick to principles.

"All's fair in politics. And Sen. Cruz, who I have a cordial relationship with, can say what he wants about me," McCain told host Neil Cavuto on Monday.

"There's no way you can be friendly after that," Cavuto said.

"I did go up to him on the floor and said, 'Look, if you want to do that to me and Mitt, fine, but Bob Dole, come on. Bob Dole worked hand-in-glove with Ronald Reagan,'" McCain acknowledged.

McCain said Reagan, unlike what some have said, would recognize his old party today, but added, "I don't think he would be in lockstep with what is being advocated here, and that is if you're not with me 100 percent of the time, then you're against me."

The hopes of an entire nation are dashed! Dashed, I tell you.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Oh, I feel confident that McCain came to Viagra Bob's emotional rescue.   :silly:

I may not be able to sleep now that I know this..............
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

As if he stood a chance... now if only he would say he won't run for the senate again.
