CNN.com – Hastert questions McCain’s GOP credentials – May 19, 2004
“In a rare public swipe at a fellow Republican, House Speaker Dennis Hastert on Wednesday questioned the GOP credentials of John McCain, a U.S. senator who has often challenged party orthodoxy.”
Good. Nice to see that at least a few elected Republicans are willing to call McCain out for his disloyalty. At a time when ideally even Democrats ought to be showing at least a little respect for the Presidency we’ve got a member of the President’s own party questioning his every move and backstabbing at every turn. For the Republican Party the old cliche rings true – with friends like John McCain who needs enemies?
