'This is what we call A-W-O-L': John McCain blasts Obama for going to fundraiser rather than showing leadership over MH17 tragedy GOP Senator said only places in the world that are more tranquil because of Obama are those that have fundraisers Came after President was criticised for giving just 40-seconds of 16-minute transportation speech to the crash

U.S. Senator John McCain has blasted President Barack Obama for going 'A-W-O-L' and utterly failing to show leadership in the wake of the attack on Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 in which 298 were killed yesterday.
Instead of heading back to Washington to discuss the crash with his national security team and address the global consequences of the possibility that it was caused by a missile attack launched by pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine, Obama traveled to New York City.
He went to New York hours after devoting just 40 seconds to the tragedy at the beginning of a jokey 16-minute speech on transportation in Delaware. 'I don't understand this president ... this is what we used to call in the military A-W-O-L,' McCain told Fox News. 'There's a direct loss of American lives here and the president goes to a fundraiser? Help me out.' There has been no confirmation of any U.S. citizens losing their lives in the crash, but a Reuters report filed yesterday amid the confusion claimed that 23 Americans had died.

Too bad you didn’t run a competent campaign in 2008, John.
But...but...I thought we had nothing to fear from an Obama presidency!
McCain would have started a war by now.
John that is nice to say, now how about you also strongly supporting your Vice Presidential candidate?
Just a suggestion.
A-H-O-L-E knows A-W-O-L when he sees it.
I have to wonder if McCain’s “Job” in the Obama administration is to make people think “I am so glad Obama got elected instead of this warmongering nutcase”.....
Kinda like how Joe Biden’s job is an insurance policy for Obama.
I sleep better when BHO is AWOL.
I worry when he’s at the helm and busy at his desk.
didn’t even read the article, just wanted to say STFUJM!!!!
The next time B.O. shows any real leadership will coincide with the first time he has shown any.
If there is anyone who knows anything about being “shot down”... it’s John McCain... both politically and professionally. Call him Mr. Experience.
Too bad Soros paid McCain to throw the 2008 election.
Tell me about it. Barrys response would be “Do you guys need more missiles?”
STFU, JM. Even when you’re right you don’t help the situation. Everyone, right and left, knows you’re just an opportunistic old wind bag.
"Pretend to be a Republican today."
Don't worry, he'll be "reaching across that aisle" again, very soon.
Problem is BHO is not the one pulling the levers. Even when he is at his desk he is just surfing ESPN waiting until he has another prepared statement to read to us.
What - McCain has turned on the Bear? What gives?
Actually, the less Obama does, the better off we all are.
If only we could encourage Lumpy Meghan’s senile father to join obama in being AWOL.
