McCain speaks in defense of Clinton (He's Obama's Boy)
AP ^ | 1-21-08

Posted on 01/21/2009 11:50:44 AM PST by rightinthemiddle

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain is imploring his Republican colleagues to drop partisan demands and let the popular president get to work.

The Arizona Republican made his first comments on the Senate floor since his rival, President Barack Obama, was sworn into office.

He said the nation has come together in a way that it has not for some time. McCain was speaking in defense of Hillary Rodham Clinton's appointment as the next secretary of State. Senate leaders had planned to confirm her by unanimous consent on Tuesday, but Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn objected because of concerns raised about foreign contributions to her husband's charity.

A roll call vote was planned for late Wednesday.

I am starting to think that the only reason that John McCain ran for President was so he could lose for Obama! Can someone tell the old fool to shut the hell up? We don’t care what he thinks!

Juan wants to help amnesty pass. Hey Juan, what happened to making sure the borders were certified as secure by all border state governors first?

That little lie didn’t take long for Juan to break.

From FoxNews.com:

“We need to immediately, or as soon as possible ... move forward with the nomination,” McCain said. He said two wars and a “fragile cease-fire” between Israel and Hamas make the installment of a new secretary of state imperative.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said President Obama needs a secretary of state “right now, this minute” to be an “advocate on the world stage.”

“There’s no better advocate than Hillary Clinton,” Graham said. “I enthusiastically support her.”

it is why we shouldn’t feel disappointed that McCain lost. He would have just done the same foolish things that Obama is going to do.

Hopefully the GOP in AZ will put up a legitimate conservative Republican in the primary to oust this POS Little JERK John McLame.

He’s ‘Obama’s Boy’?

Ya know...we have some very talent posters in this forum.

How hard is it to put John McCain’s head on the ‘Obama Girl’s’ body and make it dance?

Just a thought....one thats got me laughing as I type this.

“There’s no better advocate than Hillary Clinton,” Graham said. “I enthusiastically support her.”

Translation: “She’s got my FBI file, pictures and videotapes”.

Let me make a bold prediction: Dirty Harry and Fancy Nancy are going to push for unadulterated Marxism. Oba Mao and McCain will propose that we water it down just a little. It will be hailed as bipartisanship on the part of Obacain.

Yes McCain is up for reelection in 2010. With Napolitano at Homeland Security, I assume he will win again.

Mickey Kaus who's in Washington for the festivities wrote this morning in Slate that all the "[c]onservatives I've met in D.C. so far have been near-ebullient, not downcast or bitter. Why? a) They know how unhappy they'd be now if McCain had won; b) Obama has not fulfilled their worst fears, or even second-to-worst fears; c) now they can be an honest, straight-up opposition. ....".

TaDa!

But they won’t call it marxim or socialism, they’ll call it ‘unity’ and ‘change’.

I sent a FAX this morning to McConnell, McCain, Kyl and Cornyn (since he is in charge of choosing senate candidates) and told them either find a spine, become Republicans or do the GOP a favor and change parties so we can elect someone who represents US instead of Obama.

I suggest everyone on this board do the same thing, this bending over for Obama while he pulls an FDR after Hoover on us has to stop.

McCain is trying to position himself as the defacto leader of the opposition.

How do we send a “not in my name” or “McCain, sit down and shut up” meassage?

Arizona may be stuck with him but he does NOT represent the rest of us.
