McCain not the Reublican Voice of Reason

Many Democrats are using John McCain's death to politicize their hatred of President Trump, calling him the GOP voice of reson; so the neocon war hawk that was lockstep with Bush 43 is the voice of reason? John McCain never saw a military solution he didn't like. That includes Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and had harsh words against the Russian incursion into Georgia; in a precursor to his fecklessness Obama stated, "I think it is important at this point for all sides to show restraint and to stop this armed conflict,"(once President, Obama pretty much courted the Russians for the entire 8 years he was in office; the selling of US uranium to Russia was believed tied to Russia backing the Obama/Kerry Iran agreement) "The bitter battle over who's performed best has already begun. A McCain aide calls Obama "bizarrely in sync with Moscow." Obama's campaign suggested McCain had a conflict of interest because his foreign policy advisor, Randy Scheunemann, had lobbied for Georgia." the voice of reason?.

McCain was also vehemently against the Iran agreement, saying he agreed with President Trump. “I did not support the nuclear deal at the time it was proposed, and many of its specific terms will make it harder to pursue the comprehensive strategy we need. In that sense, I agree with the President that the deal is not in the vital national interests of the United States," ...Trump had twice certified Iran's compliance with the deal. But on Friday, he declared that Iran had violated the "spirit" of the accord with its non-nuclear behavior, citing its support for Assad and militant groups in the Middle East in addition to its ballistic-missile program."

McCain also roundly criticized President Obama's Israel policies, referring to the President's rhetoric as a "temper tantrum". McCain's also condemned President Obama's feckless Ukraine policy, calling the President, "the most naive president in history." This was consistent with McCains worldview of Russia, stating at one point “[Vladimir] Putin is not America’s friend, nor merely a competitor,” McCain said. “Putin is America’s enemy, not because we wish it so but because he has chosen to be.”
The left now calls McCain the voice of reason is becasue he was a "never Trumper", to the point of sending an emissary to pickup the fabricated Trump dossier, and passed it on to Comey, not knowing the FBI already had a copy. Further McCain was the key vote that stopped the Senate from repealing Obamacare.
