Of course not… I don’t know what depths these people won’t reach. Obviously, it’s just outrageous. That’s just outrageous. It shows the – it’s so disgraceful for them to allege something that they have absolutely no knowledge of.
Senator John McCain • Denying very forcefully a theory that’s been circling political media over the last week — that during his 2008 search for a running mate, McCain shied away from current GOP challenger Mitt Romney due to his extended tax return history, which Romney has steadfastly refused to release to the public. Regardless of what the McCain campaign may have found in Romney’s returns during vetting, the idea that it was a dealbreaker does seem a bit unbelievable — why then pick Sarah Palin rather than a more staid, Romney-esque alternative? Former McCain strategist Steve Schmidt also said the taxes weren’t a deciding issue, but did concede that following a flurry of attention on the McCain family’s numerous homes, bringing in another candidate with so much owned property gave the campaign pause. source (viafollow)

Obviously, maybe in a roundabout way, foreign money is coming into an American campaign.
Sen. John McCain • Criticizing the recent $10 million donation casino magnate Sheldon Adelson made to Mitt Romney’s Super PAC by suggesting that Adelson likely used profits from properties he owns in the Chinese special administrative region of Macau to fund Romney’s campaign. (It’s an issue near and dear to McCain’s heart, as the campaign finance bill that Citizens United largely struck down, McCain-Feingold, bears his name.) The Las Vegas Sands head also played a heavy role in the primaries, heavily funding Newt Gingrich’s electoral efforts. While people from foreign countries cannot fund election efforts, McCain is arguing that efforts like Adelson’s skirt around this, due to the fact that Adelson is the leader of a multinational corporation. Follow McCain’s logic here?

Whether Rick Santorum stays in or not, is now basically irrelevant and Mitt has a lot of ground to make up. I’m confident he can make it up, but every day that goes by that he’s not in the general campaign is a day lost.
Sen. John McCain • Offering a tough take on Rick Santourm, suggesting that by staying in, he’s severely hurting Romney’s general election campaign. McCain also thinks that Romney’s doing poor in favorability rankings largely because the campaign has been so bitter.

The Super PACs have played a key role, unfortunately, in my view, because most of them are negative ads. They’ve driven up the unfavorables of all of the candidates and made it much more difficult, frankly, to win the election in November.
Sen. John McCain • Speaking on the 2012 presidential election, which he called “the nastiest I have ever seen.” Remember, this is coming from the guy who once was falsely accused of birthing a black child out of wedlock. So his standards are pretty high as far as nasty races go. McCain, a longtime advocate of campaign finance reform, went further, calling the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision “the worst decision the United States Supreme Court has made in many years.”

motherjones:

As our mothers used to tell us, “Even a broken watch tells the right time twice a day.”

Hey, GOP candidates, listen to this guy. When he talks about torture, he doesn’t talk about it in the theoretical. He, personally, knows what it’s like.

The swimming pool looks a lot better until you jump right in. The water may not be quite as warm as you think.

Someone’s bitter.
