Noted Romney supporter supports Romney

posted at 9:31 am on June 16, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

If you want to win an election to the nation’s highest office there are few better choices to get help from than somebody who has walked that road before you. That’s why Mitt Romney has been exceptionally lucky to have Senator John McCain as one of his campaign surrogates. They’ve gone head to head against each other and McCain has had the full experience of running up against the Obama campaign machine. And now he can lend his guidance, support and public endorsement of Romney’s candidacy and be there to celebrate any bits of good news coming Mitt’s way. Such as the recent announcement that Sheldon Adelson would be lending his financial backing to the effort. Take it away, John.

Senator and Romney presidential campaign surrogate John McCain (R-AZ) said Thursday that casino magnate Sheldon Adelson is indirectly injecting millions of dollar in Chinese “foreign money” into Mitt Romney’s presidential election effort.

“Much of Mr. Adelson’s casino profits that go to him come from his casino in Macau, which says that obviously, maybe in a roundabout way foreign money is coming into an American political campaign,” McCain said in an interview on PBS’s News Hour.

“That is a great deal of money, and we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization… that we have to have a limit on the flow of money and corporations are not people,” he said.

Moments like this are precisely why I invented the #HeadDesk hashtag on Twiter.

OK… I get that John McCain is still in favor of campaign finance reform and that’s his right. But if he’s going to agree to be a campaign surrogate for Romney, you’d think he might put this on the back burner for a bit while we get on with the business of the election. Heck, he can still support the idea without coming out and directly torpedoing somebody who is kicking in toward the effort.

Obama’s surrogates have already realized that money is speech and American Bridge is hard at work raising cash for them. If you want to change the system, work to do that. But until the change is in place we all have to play by the rules on the field. McCain needs to step back a few paces and figure out which side of the Long Ball game he’s on.

If he knew how to do that, he’d be President McCain today, and he wouldn’t have to worry about where Romney’s money is coming from.

AZCoyote on June 16, 2012 at 9:37 AM

Hey, Mac. You got your ass handed to you by Obama. Romney’s on the verge of doing the opposite. So shut the hell up and just smile through these interviews with that obnoxious grin of yours. It’s bad enough we have one McCain out there constantly saying stupid things under the guise of supporting the Republican Party.

Doughboy on June 16, 2012 at 9:38 AM

McCain is truly a piece of work.

Petulant, bitter, jealous, timid, media whorish, and the worst of all….a dyed in the wool Progressive.

….but in the two party cults we have all must be forgiven, apologized for and character be forsaken for political power and perks.

So McCain will probably walk this one back, like Clinton walked his “sterling” comments back, like Corey Booker sucked it up and recanted, and on and on….

Romney also “really showed a lack of judgement” in signing Romneycare. He also “really showed a lack of jdugement” in hiring Mike Leavitt. He also “really showed a lack of judgement” in his lackluster (IMO) response to Obama’s DREAM EO. How many more times must Mitt Romney show a lack of judgement before the rombots start to doubt him?

ddrintn on June 16, 2012 at 9:58 AM

Someone is going to have to explain to me how this works. Is McCain saying that if someone loses $1000 in one of Sheldon Adleson’s casinos in Macao that he is doing so to influence the US elections? Is there a major donor anywhere that only has business in the US? Foster Friess? William Dore?

Here is my question in a nutshell: Is John McCain saying that if you have been successful in your career, and if your business is international in scope you are excluded from the political process in order to avoid foreign influence?

It is time for Mr. McCain to take a seat. Somewhere near the back. He’s just trying to get his “maverick” brand back so he can feel relevant again.

rogaineguy on June 16, 2012 at 10:01 AM

I was just about to mention Leavitt, but you beat me to it. Personnel is policy. I would say that you’re being generous in the adjective “lackluster”. I think words like spineless, mealy-mouthed, weak are more appropriate. Funny, I thought he wanted to win this election, but it’s obvious he’s listening to McCain.

Good God!

Westeners used to know how to ride hard and shoot straight.

Everytime McCain steps in front of a camera he pulls out his two six-shooters and empties them into his friends, reloads, and then puts six well placed rounds in each of his own feet.

Pathetic.

But hey, what do I know. Unlike you, I have no experience claiming that in his heart of hearts Romney would hire Brett Kimberlin.

Awwwww, no, snookums. We all know your god is as pure as the wind-driven snow.

Like yor comments here, an exercise in futility …ah, the irony….

My comments are futile, but yet the only thread that’s shown any sign of life recently is the one where a lot of Romney dissenters question MightMitt’s Jell-O response on immigration. Our little squad of ‘bot horn-honkers thinks it’s bigger than it is, apparently.

I remember the glory of McCain-Feingold (aka “Incumbent Protection Act”).

The little Arizona bitter man wanting to get “the money out of politics” and then he finally got it past through the Senate and lo and behold Bush 43 signs the Unconstitutional piece of trash.

Talk radio and Karl Rove and the other gop cultists got out there and defended Bush saying “he did it because he knows the courts will throw it out”…….

So many gutless politicians/cultists.

Nothing more important than the party, and protecting it’s privileges.

Well, what’ the point for thinking independently if the result is a massive brain fart, like in your case :)…most people do that as a result of groupthink, well, congratulations, you managed to do that independently :))….

Senator, when you start mimicking Politico’s Maggie Haberman, it is way past your bedtime

The story of super PACs and the influx of outside cash has now been established as one of the major stories of the 2012 cycle. But Adelson is a story within his own right, given the scope of the spending. Source

Flora Duh on June 16, 2012 at 10:41 AM

Heh, McCain is probably the “leak source” for most of the Politico stories that feature an unnamed GOP muckety-muck.

If McCain isn’t popping off in front of cameras on Sunday mornings, he is the go-to guy for general anti-conservative pontificating. He loves the camera and the sound of his own voice as much as Schumer does.

Campaign finance helps two groups of people, the rich and the incumbents.

I’m shocked McCain supports this

cpaulus on June 16, 2012 at 11:41 AM

Which is about as relevant as pointing out that Romney has absolutely no military experience.
ddrintn on June 16, 2012 at 11:07 AM

Not quite. This thread was initially about how John McCain disband all this money coming into politics, yet ironically he had made his career out of politics – barely touching business

MeatHeadinCA on June 16, 2012 at 11:42 AM

I just hope that the guy who lost to the guy that lost to Obama can get good support from the guy that lost to Obama that beat him.

MeatHeadinCA on June 16, 2012 at 11:42 AM

Yes, quite. One doesn’t have to have loads of private sector experience in order to have a legitimate opinion on the role of private-sector money in politics.m It’s like saying Romney can say nothing about defense spending since he’s never been in the military.

ddrintn on June 16, 2012 at 11:44 AM

Sheesh, give the old guy a break. He’s probably got that 2008 Campaign Strategy burned into his grey matter, and merely can’t help himself. You know, old dogs and new tricks….

Simply cut his mic until November. (‘Just smile and wave, John. Um, maybe just wave?’)

I think his 90+ year old mother needs to put him across her boney knee, and wail on his behind like there’s no tomorrow.

It’s hypocritical for John McCain to attack businesses while he did absolutely nothing to improve one. He just sucked off the money the gave him.

It would be comparable if Mitt Romney started lamenting the evils of our military.

MeatHeadinCA on June 16, 2012 at 11:49 AM

Error: questioning the role of money in politics =/= “attacking business”. It’s the same as “questioning Bain =/= SOCIALISTIC OWSER!!!!!”

ddrintn on June 16, 2012 at 11:57 AM

McCain now teaching Romney how to lose.

Oh well better he lose anyway.

He wins there is two Democrat Parties.

He loses perhaps Republicans remain Republicans.
