Meghan McCain says tea party has dad ‘depressed’ and ‘frustrated’

mccains Sen. John McCain’s daughter says her dad is “depressed” and “frustrated” with the tea party faction of the Republican Party, which she called “the hyper-conservative wing.”

A state of mind many in the tea party can relate to in their radical pursuit of a more fiscally responsible, limited federal government.

“We’re both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses,” Meghan McCain said during an interview with ABC and Yahoo News.

Ms. McCain, who has her own reality show “Raising McCain,” said the last time her father was so depressed about the state of politics was after his failed 2008 presidential bid, according to the Washington Times.

“He is so depressed. He is so downtrodden,” Ms. McCain said. “The way he’s talking about it, how he’s never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office.”

An indication that McCain grew accustomed to a more apathetic constituency willing to place blind trust in progressive politicians on both sides of the aisle who have steered this country to the precipice of financial ruin.

As for her 77-year-old father running for reelection in 2016, something McCain recently said he is considering, his daughter said she has reservations about it.

“My father has more energy than I do,” Ms. McCain said. “So it is not his age, it is just the idea of having another dirty tea party election.”

After all, one can only take so much of accountability.

      Meghan McCain is the poster child for abortion on demand. Fat, stupid and ugly is no way to go through life.

        You know, it’s one thing to mock someone’s beliefs but for you to mock someone for being fat is horrible Ernie. You know why more people don’t trust grassroots people? Because of this shallow crap right here.

          Go cry on somebody else’s shoulder. Both Megan and her idiot daddy mock and insult people constantly. They are the worst sort of people: “Do unto me as I do to you.”
          Stuff it, Buttercup.

        • Katy

          Jennifer, you have a good point. Claiming that anybody is the “poster child for abortion on demand” brings an argument into the trash can, especially in the minds of those that are pro-life. An irrational and disrespectful comment that only convinces people that it is the blogger who has the problems.

        • Bill

          Jennifer you have to have pitty on him. I mean take a look at his life for the last bunch of years. We have a Democrat in the White House and he is a Black Democrat too. Combine that with a Senate full of Democrats and 20% approve(less than half of Obama’s) and you have his worse nightmare. Poor thing.

    • Jennifer Dunn

      Really people? You’re actually going to say that Palin is able to lead a country? Of everyone in the party, you pick her?? That’s just absurd. She’s an idiot. Sure she makes a great speech and is a good cheerleader but that’s all she was, a cheerleader. I agree that McCain isn’t fit to lead and neither is Obama but to believe someone that didn’t even know what the Bush Doctrine was and thought Africa is able to lead? What’s wrong with Cruz? With anyone else but her.

      • MaryAnnie Hughes

        I suppose you are an idiot expert? Believing the media hype about Palin. What proof do you have that she is an idiot? That she was a two time elected Mayor and then Governor. Or that she is a wife and mother of five children? Oh yeah, she must be an idiot because she didn’t abort her fifth child.
        BTW no one ever heard of the “Bush Doctrine” til the trick question was asked. And Africa is able to lead, seems they have been for thousands of years. All is relative, my dear.

      • Ernie kaputnik

        Wow! You criticize me for insulting Megan McCain and then turn around and insult Sarah Palin. Typical of a liberal. You people are just all kinds of stupid and crazy.

        • MarkStolzoff

          using your own logic you are just as ridiculous for insulting Megan McCain and then complaining about someone insulting Sarah Palin,

          • Ernie kaputnik

            I am not “complaining” about you folks insulting Sarah Palin. Yet for some unknown reason, you decided to get involved in the conversation. So be it, Chin Nuts.

            The problem with weak-minded toads such as yourself is that you suffer from an incurable form of logic deficiency which makes you just all sorts of stupid. To wit, the University of Michigan conducted a study on this condition and discovered that it is caused by blunt force trauma to the forehead. A follow-up study determined that in extreme cases such as yours, it is a direct result of your boyfriend repeatedly bouncing his nut sack on your forehead.

    John McCain IS responsible for the Tea Party he gave us Palin and sold his soul to the Tea party in 2008 and 2012

    • The Guru

      You still think that was his intent?

      • azwi

        He was desperate to win at any cost and put himself “before” country by picking Palin!

        • Anna Lou Evans Runions

          That’s funny, I thought he picked Palin because he knew he was going to loose, and he wanted to humiliate her. He knew she wasn’t ready.

          • azwi

            Yet he lied to America and said that she’s qualified to be president, and he even lies to us today by claiming that she’s qualified. I think McCain lacks the judgement to be not only president, but to be in the senate as well.

          • TyS

            Palin was/is infinitely more qualified than the current moron-in-chief. A pile of dog sh!t is more qualified than Obama.

          • momoseven

            She governed a state that shared a surplus of profit of it’s natural gas resources with the people of that state who own it, and called out the cronies in her own party. The present Pres. shuts down monuments and parks the people own AND has run up TRILLIONS in debt for the people and their children and grandchildren to pay for. He aligns himself with the cronies in his party and appoints cronies to unelected positions. I don’t believe that you have displayed that you have the wisdom to be qualified to say who is qualified to be President.

          • Rene Thompson

            Yep, and when he lost, he dropped her and the Tea Party like a hot potato. McCain’s a self involved hack who uses good people for his own gain…and when they don’t deliver for him, he turns on them without batting an eyelash. He demonstrates all the filthy traits of a progressive….I don’t care if there is an “R” next to his name.

          • azwi

            John McCain will say anything or do anything as long as it’s beneficial to John McCain and John McCain only! John McCain himself is exactly what’s wrong with today’s GOP! A old white man that is a pathological liar, a warmonger that the Defense & Oil Intrigues own.

          • MaryAnnie Hughes

            Why is it hate to state the truth about Obama, but not so to lie about Palin? Perhaps azwi, you speak of yourself.

          • azwi

            I would say that you’re in the minority with your view of Palin’s mental intelligences

          • Rene Thompson

            Who cares what you have to say about McCain? Your a liberal….your opinion doesn’t amount to a hill of beans. Go troll somewhere else.

          • azwi

            Beg your patron Sir, but we have a liberal president who soundly defeated McCain and Romney. Plus we’ll no doubt elect another liberal with Hillary in 2016. So bottom line looks like no one really cares what you rednecks want

          • Kibshe

            Ah…yes, the defeat. And how many districts were found to have committed deliberate voter fraud in the election? How many 115 year olds were voting in that election? It’s quite remarkable really. I certainly hope I have that much vitality when I’m that age…

          • azwi

            McCain lost by a landslide stop making up excuses. The American people soundly reject McCain, his narrow mind, out of touch views, and his his warmongering

          • Kenneth Clark

            Don’t count your chickens just yet. The eggs aren’t even warm yet for the Democrats, they actually are starting to smell. Me thinks they are rotten…

            Just watch maybe the GOP will nominate another warmongering idiot like John McCain

          • Rene Thompson

            Really? So tell us Einstein, what has 0bama done that has gone well for the American people?

          • Joshua Mcclain

            “qualified” is a subjective term in politics. one needs only to look at the current president tosee the truth of this. “No todo lo que reluce es oro.”

          • azwi

            He’s certainly not the best, but he’s better than McCain and his wars would of been

          • Joshua Mcclain

            mccain….wars? oh. right. you mean the same wars that are going on right now under the obama administration…becasue now the exact same wars under obama are not a problem? if yes, you are a moron. if not, then what wars are you speaking of? the supposed wars that you were told would spontaniously combust out of thin air by the media had been president….the very same wars we have now? please reply when you learn not to rely on political posturing and bad rhetoric.

          • azwi

            What I hold against Obama, is that he keeps trying to appease the “warmongers” like John McCain! Obama should disregard anything that McCain advises because McCain certainly is not a foreign affairs or military expert. McCain is a war hungry warmonger that the Defense & Oil Industries own. Understand Moran?

          • Joshua Mcclain

            so mr.obama is now a spineless suit that just bows to the demands of any and all senators? heaven forbid if he conformed to logic and made his own decisions like the rest of the human race. even if mccain is advising mr.obama, no matter if you believe him to be right, he is certainly more qualified to make military calls than obama as he has actually served. also, it is spelt “moron”. your welcome, moron.

          • azwi

            John McCain is a lying war hungry, warmonger that the Defense & Oil Industries own. McCain has become a international joke with his daily calls for wars, bombings and invasions. Last count it was 13 countries including Russia and China that McCain wants to go to war with. If a war thirty warmonger like McCain ever did become president there wouldn’t be much left of the human race. I strongly suggest that “you” enlist. Being a warmonger such as McCain is, certainly does not qualify him as a military or foreign affairs expect.

          • Joshua Mcclain

            (not that i see any relevance in your rhetorical challenge to enlist.) fyi i joined the marines right out of high school in 2010 and am currently still enlisted. as for war, (something you most likely know nothing about), obama has droned 26 countries since he has been elected killing over 8500 people, of which, over 80% are estimated to be civilians. also,you are right. wanting to go to war does not qualify a person to advise on such matters, experience does. experience that mr.obama so plainly does not possess. with these numbers i would posit the question: who is the warmonger; the man who has mercilessly droned other countries killing thousands or the man that wanted too, yet did not.

          • azwi

            Good for you I was in before you were born 1966 through 1968. Hopefully you’ll serve your country better than John McCain did.

            how was i supposed to know you were my elder? as far as i know, you are a 18 yr old punk in his moms basement claiming to be a nam’ vet. besides, i was polite to you throughout this convo.

          • Monica

            Sarah Palin has always been more qualified than this RINO. She took on the RINO in Alaska and got him out of office and cut spending. Obama and McCain have spent us into oblivion!

          • Sloppy Joe

            So, Palin was not ready to be President, but Obama was?

          • azwi

            NO on Palin, but with McCain as Obama’s opponent made Obama a shoo in! McCain really lacks the qualifications too, besides with McCain you’ll have numerous wars even nuclear wars. So I’m very grateful the American people soundly rejected McCain. The GOP should of put up a better candidate, than a warmongering old man such as McCain.

          • Ernie kaputnik

            And I think you lack critical thinking skills and common sense. You appear to be suffering from a terminal form of insanity that is called “Palin Envy” combined with an aversion to reality and facts. According to “Grey’s Anatomy” there is no known cure for any of the aforementioned ailments, so I suggest you shoot yourself in the head and spare the rest of us from having to tolerate you. I also think you need to change your diaper because you smell like a steaming pile of dog poo.

            She was as ready as Obama.

          • Conservative NOT Racist

            Actually, she was and is MORE qualified. Obuttmonkey never had a real job. SHE was governor of a state and was doing an awesome job. Right up until the liberal media started attacking her family personally, and advocating that her daughter should have had an abortion. That’s when WE, the People, should have (figuratively) burned down the media station that supported this stance.

          • Maggie Goff

            lose, not loose.

        • Ariadnea

          Palin is even more qualified than McCain. Unless of course, if McCain will run under the Democratic Party, he will be more qualified as Democrat than many Democrats.

          • azwi

            Democrats do not want the old warmonger either

          • John C

            That’s because he is a useful idiot as long as he’s registered as a Republican but he would be just another useless idiot as a Democrat

        • MaryAnnie Hughes

          As usual, republicans allowed the media to elect McCain, then malign Palin. Palin was and still is more ready than the Idiot in the WH. When are so called conservatives going to think for themselves and stop fighting among themselves. The Dems would never have allowed a Palin to be treated as such. Hillary, Michelle, Barbara Boxer, NANCY, etc., all more idiotic and dangerous, yet revered and protected by the Dems and media. Wake up people!!

          • azwi

            Again MaryAnnie, you’re in the minority with your views of Palin’s mentality. What I would agree with is that McCain and Palin=Dumber & Dumber

          • MaryAnnie Hughes

            Again, you should know, since you describe yourself. I am in a minority of those who use their voices. Anyone who thinks Hillary is smart is just dumb. She and her kind are just evil, and appeal to the sick media.

          • azwi

            Whatever you say MaryAnnie,”whatever”

          • Roger Combs

            funny azwi but the minority is anyone who thinks Obama is a legit leader and knows what he is doing . he has killed more americans now with his war mongers then BUSH and BUSH never got a US official killed on US Soil in another country, is that to hard for you to figure out. I personally dispise both parties right now and belevie we need a 3rd party that has leaders who held real jobs lived the middle class life for a while and understand what the American people want not what the big money liberals or conservatives want

      He picked Palin because the word was out that people liked her. Before he picked her, I was going to vote (against Obama, not necessarily FOR him). After he picked Palin I also voted FOR him. She put some punch in the campaign.

    • obamathemarxist

      There was no Tea Party in 2008, still is no Tea Party, I don’t know of a single state you can register as a Tea Party member in. CNBC analyst Rick Santelli gave a rousing rant about taxes that started the movement. The Tea Party’s primary purpose is a limited constitutional government, everything else is people projecting their own ideas.

      • davidnohe

        I wish there was a Tea Party to register under. Now THAT’S a 3rd party that would have a shot at squashing the democRATS.

    Nobody likes McCain except for the baby boomers who are senile and remember him as a Vietnam war hero. McCain is more liberal than the conservative Democrats which is causing a lot of depressing amongst actual Republican conservatives. You helped bankrupt this nation McCain. Time for you to go.

        • Thomas A. Livingston

          I’m getting quite irritated about this internecine warfare within the ranks! It seems exactly like the “blame game” of the Left, and doesn’t do anything but sidetrack us from the goal of electing the right people for the job. This Bipartisanship and Deal making looks bogus and immoral (vote buying), does not appear in any way to be serving the average voter. In addition to the last sentence I see at least two major problems, 1) Career Politicians, and 2) The Seniority System. There is more also. But I will attempt to keep it brief. Term Limits do not currently seem a viable choice unless passed at the local level and forced on Congress (along the Mark Levin model, if actually practical). Electing folks on a promise of serving only 2-3 terms hasn’t seemed to work all that well, does it. All the tools involved of course are like a two-edged sword, works great if used right, but also great when used wrong, which defeats the original intent. I’m going to leave it there. A lot of collaboration on the local levels needs to take place, statewide for Senate, each district for the House. Get together as groups, collaborate, agree on good candidates to replace the useless career types in the primaries, and keep the pressure on through the general election.

      Baby Boomer and Viet Nam era vet here. You don’t become a hero by being captured by the enemy and then confessing to war crimes. How did that make McCain a “hero”? No doubt the Hanoi Hilton was Hell on Earth, but he wasn’t the only P.O.W. there.

      • John C

        anyone remotely attached to the military becomes a “War Hero” when they enter politics, it’s a disgrace to true war heroes. Max Cleland for example was drunk and dropped a grenade blowing his legs off and the Dems were calling him this great war hero, McCain is just as bad.

    • notgoingtobpc

      You are so wrong about the Baby Boomers, I am one and believe me, I don’t like McCain, and I certainly cannot stand Obama. And if it were not for us Tea Partiers you all would still have your heads stuck in the sand not knowing what the heck is going on. We may be old but we are far from stupid!!!

      • The Guru

        Just because you are one doesn’t make you representative of them.

        • Teresa

          Again guru, where did you take your survey? You may think you are a guru, but you are very cocky and arrogant. You probably have been well taken of by us baby boomers.

        • notgoingtobpc

          Well, I can tell you one thing, I have plenty of baby boomer friends and we all feel the same way. NONE of us agree with Obummers # NoHealthCare! What makes you an expert on what the baby boomers believe or not believe?

          • The Guru

            Well thats the problem. Its not just Obama, its the entire ideology that you need a strong Centrist Federal government. Your generation has swept aside the ideas of libertarianism (Jeffersonian classical liberalism.) Obama is really nothing more than Bush 2.0. You are just another blind partisan.

          • notgoingtobpc

            I agree, it is the entire ideology of the left and the right, that I do not agree with. I, am not partisan by any means. I didn’t agree with Bush’s socialists actions either. A Centrist Federal government is too moderate for me.

            I have always paid attention to what was going on, in our government, from the age of 10 years old. Why, you may ask? Because, I was discriminated against time and time again by a liberal, socialists teacher in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For that reason I became very concerned and curious as to why she thought the way she did and why my thoughts and ideas were so wrong to her.

            So, don’t tell me it is my fault or my generation. I don’t believe in big government or having government in every aspect of my life. I want freedom and liberties that our Constitution provides for us. Not the “liberal beliefs”, of today, which, detract from what our Founding Father’s, had the foresight and understanding to protect us from, exactly what is now happening, in this country this very day.

    • obamathemarxist

      As a baby boomer I do not like John McCain, there’s nothing Heroic about having your plane shot out from under you and surviving a POW camp. The term Hero is grossly overused in today’s parlance.

    • John C

      Long past time for him to go.

      My Dear “The Guru: (of????)
      I too, am a Baby Boomer. I am not senile and I am a 61 year old Viet Nam Veteran. Having lived through that tumultuous time and war, I can say in all honesty; you have no leg to stand on in your comment about Baby Boomers being senile and are the only ones that like him.
      I have no idea how old you are but you are obviously too young to remember the war and only read about it in your history books.. if you read them… And in saying that, I can assure you that you, personal opinion here, could not have survived 7 minutes in a Vietnamese P.O.W. camp… much less the 7 years Mr. McCain did. And for THAT, I still consider him an American Hero… to take that from him is an insult to him and any other American Veteran of ANY war.
      I do not agree with him. I’ll go so far as to say: I dislike him and his politics in their current state. A RINO to be sure but, he wasn’t always that way. He did a lot FOR this country as a true Republican. I believe more so in the past than currently. That is probably an understatement. But, Insulting a generation by one persons turn from true conservatism to RINO is like one of us to say:
      They’re nothing more than Government Teat Sucking, dope smoking gangsta wannabe’s who’s only goal in life is to smoke enough crack to stay perpetually high.
      As, this is only a minority of your generation, I’m sure you take umbrage in the statement… as do we, of yours.
      So, please, in the future, if you disagree with someone who IS a war hero, regardless of the war, treat them with a modicum of respect and dignity because they chose to serve their country…
      And one day (if you survive), you too will be considered an old man who only likes someone because of… what ever it is… And, it will be someone younger than you that calls YOU: “old and senile.”

  • Mayor of Merritt Island

    IF he is so “depressed and frustrated” why NOT resign immediately??? I mean he has been sitting in the Senate chair so long his a$$ prints are permanently embedded into it!!!!! Boo Hoo NO none zero nada ZILCH of ANY sympathy for him or his blowhard daughter!!!!

  • Judith Lang

    Ironic, McCain was the one that chose top Tea Party advocator, Sarah Palin as V.P., than it follows that McCain is the father of the Tea Party. :)

    • Bret Bourg

      Let me get this straight….If one expects accountability from elected public servants, is tired of “politics as usual”, objects to the degradation of a standard of living that once was the envy of the world, rejects the trading of liberty for safety yada, yada, yada…. That makes them a hyper sensitive conservative? Where do I sign up? Neither of you have my sympathy, Miss McCain. Go blow your BS elsewhere.

    • obamathemarxist

      Judy Judy Judy; There was no Tea Party in 2008, still is no Tea Party, I don’t know of a single state you can register as a Tea Party member in. CNBC analyst Rick Santelli gave a rousing rant about taxes that started the movement. The Tea Party’s primary purpose is a limited constitutional government, everything else is people projecting their own ideas. His Rant was in Feb 2009 after Obama took office.

      • Judith Lang

        Absolutely correct! Incredibly they, we want huge Government and their crony businesses off our backs, not unlike some of the Occupy Wall Street fellows — they should join us!

  • Anna Lou Evans Runions

    I respect Mr. McCain’s service to this country, and have sympathy for what he suffered, but he has been in government too long. People have used his Military record to help keep his position for at least 18 years too many.. He is now a Republican liberal, and that is why he no longer likes the Tea party. He apparently agrees with obama’s agenda, or he would not belittle the good work the Tea Party is doing and has done. He needs to go and let a real conservative have a chance. If he runs again, I hope he is badly beaten.

    • nanap

      I would like to see a GOOD ACCURATE bio of McCain. I respected him as a POW (supposing he was a hero). Now I am hearing other POWs knew him to be a traitor. I would really like to know. Is he a hero that is disappointing or a traitor who used his POW status to form a fake picture of himself?

  • Elizabeth Conley

    Mr. McCain’s progressive leanings have been very much in evidence. I will never forgive him for co-authoring the NDAA of 2012, an intollerable assault on all our Constitutional rights.
    I am glad Mr. McCain was not elected president, because his behavior and remarks suggest that he would have done everything Obama has done to destroy our once great nation. Worse, he would have done it as a Republican, which would have ended the Republican party.
    As it is, the Republicans have a shot. They can survive if the start listening to libertarians and tea partiers.

  • Francine Hayes

    Dear Ms McCain, Please let your dad know that HE is one of those who are depressing us!! Time for him to retire. Sincerely, Fran

  • Leisa

    the tea party must be doing something right, but they shouldn’t be blaming the ultra conservatives for John’s depression. He should just admit he’s a Demoncrat and get on with life.
