"All I can say is, I am blessed to have the opportunity to continue to be part of a country where you can succeed and do well."


Here John McCain gives due credit to his wife Cindy's father in a general sort of way, without actually naming the fellow, who, after coming back from WWII, amassed a huge personal fortune in Arizona. He's the one, Cindy McCain's dad, who actually achieved the Republican wet dream of a successful business John McCain now has the good fortune to be attached to. So when McCain says he's blessed here, he's acknowledging his own success at advantageously positioning himself among the luxuries permitted by the achievements of another fellow, which is good Republican work in any age.

You can succeed and do well. And a Republican can take grateful advantage, like a remora. Way of the world, my friends. Ask John McCain.
