Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were vocal critics of the administration’s messaging after the Benghazi attacks, but on Friday, they issued a laudatory statement about Victoria Nuland — the woman behind a number of the changes to the talking points — and her nomination to be assistant secretary of state for Europe. “Ambassador Victoria Nuland has a long and distinguished record of service to our nation in both Republican and Democrat administrations. She is knowledgeable and well-versed on the major foreign policy issues as well as respected by foreign policy experts in both parties. We look forward to her upcoming confirmation hearings in the United States Senate,” the two senators said in a joint statement.

They were the primary GOP cheerleaders for involving us in the purely Libyan mess. They’re dirty in this one too.

Too bad the Republican primary voters of SC know nothing about all this: it’s just “internal baseball”, as they call it.

Last evening Mark Levin said he had given up trying to explain McCain and Grahamnesty. So he simply characterized both of them as “crazy”. Because what they say and do makes no sense...

McCain was knee deep in Libya. Don’t trust anything he says.

Benghazi, Libya (CNN) — Libyan opposition leaders received a major morale boost Friday when a top U.S. senator made a surprise visit to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi and urged greater American involvement in the bloody campaign to oust strongman Moammar Gadhafi.

The visit from Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, came a day after the United States said it was deploying predator drones to Libya.

It makes perfect sense if we accept the fact that they’re faithful democrats intentionally screwing the GOP from within.

Absolutely. These two turds keep trying to cover their tracks in sponsoring the arab spring that led to this and the misuse of US military power to "liberate" Libya. McCain and Graham are every bit as complicit in this goat screw as Obama and Clinton are.

The evidence trail is here..

..If Obama has nothing to hide, then produce the White House logs, the visitor logs, the related NSC correspondence, and all documents related to his location and activities...

The real question is who can get that evidence and report it.

These guys surround themselves with syncophants the only way they’ill ever get the message is when they get garbage tossed at them literally when they show up at any speaking engagement.By folks bearing signs reading “WE’RE TIRED OF YOUR GARBAGE” (a must if that’s done). Same way with the press.

“Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were vocal critics of the administration’s messaging after the Benghazi attacks, but on Friday, they issued a laudatory statement about Victoria Nuland”

Victoria Nuland

Spouse: Robert Kagan

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7370992.stm

Robert Kagan is an adviser to Senator John McCain and his idea that the United States should continue to take a strong, and possibly a confrontational, role in world affairs accords with McCain’s own views.

Kagan’s brother Frederick was instrumental in persuading President Bush to reinforce US forces in Iraq with last year’s “surge”, against the advice of the Iraq Study Group of “wise men” at the time. The surge was and is a policy supported by John McCain and one of the reasons for his political success.

There is something about Libya that even the GOP does not want to be known. Many hands are dirty, and yesterday’s little compromises have compounded into the willing complicity of self-blackmail.

Will Victoria Nulan have to be confirmed by the Senate to assume her new position? If so I’m assuming that more information on her background and recent actions will come out.

I guess I’m going to reserve judgement on this nomination for awhile. I know little about her but what I do know leads me to believe that she is basically a “loyal soldier” who will forcefully carry out the orders of her superiors—whoever they happen to me and whatever those orders are. And she appears to carry out those orders without questioning, at least publicly, the right or wrong of them.

On the plus side she is cute and anyone who “learned to drink aboard a Soviet fishing trawler” in her early 20s likely does have some redeeming qualities.

I don’t know about Graham but McCain is bought and owned by Soros. Has been for some time.

Fifty-seven year old Grahamnesty has never been married. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Anyway, I'd say their bromance has gone pretty far...
