Re: story, July 25, “Cheers, whoops for McCain’s return, then impassioned speech”

Your story tried its best to make John McCain appear to be a great statesman and orator, a real Daniel Webster. Unfortunately you left out the part that revealed Sen. McCain as the maverick who personally stymies progress conservative Republicans are trying to accomplish for the good of the American people. This is why traditional media and Democrats hold him in such esteem.

In his usual disdain for those who want to make America great again, the senator spewed his vitriol, saying: “Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and the television and the internet. To hell with them! They don’t want anything done for the public good – our incapacity is their livelihood. Let’s trust each other.” Meaning: Let’s yield to Democrats and RINOs everything they want and forget the hardworking, forgotten Americans who elected President Trump.

Daniel Webster is famous for this quote in January 1830: “The people’s government, made for the people, made by the people and answerable to the people,” which was later borrowed in Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. In contrast McCain says, “To hell with them.”

To set the record straight, this is the real McCain and don’t worry Daily News, he thinks you’re OK.
