McCain Adopts Role as GOP Bulldog

Monday, 20 Dec 2010 12:32 PM

Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain carved a reputation in the past as someone often eager to break with his GOP colleagues to cooperate with Democrats. No more. He is “getting under the skin of Democrats these days — and he seems to be relishing it,” Politico reports.

McCain, GOP, Democrats, bulldog“After Democrats scrapped a massive $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill Thursday, McCain gloated about its defeat — and Democrats fumed. When he took a whack at efforts to bring up a bill aimed at helping Sept. 11 first-responders, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. reacted fiercely. And as he went down fighting Saturday on the repeal of the military’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was baffled, saying, ‘I don’t understand it.’”

McCain’s re-election victory this year has afforded him some political freedom, and he’s taking it out against President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats.
