Posted on 08/25/2009 2:01:19 PM PDT by ianschwartz
One audience member asked the former Presidential contender if President Obama didn't realize that some of the changes he's calling for goes against the Constitution. Sen. McCain responded that he's sure the president respects the Constitution. Some town hall attendees booed the senator's response. McCain added tried to hush the boos, reminding the room that the president of the United States is owed respect. "I'm sure that he respects the Constitution of the United States. I really do. I'm absolutely convinced of it," Sen. McCain said.

He’s a slimy stinking s.o.b. who helped put Obama in the White House like Bush I helped put Clinton there.
McCain needs to quit and co-host “The View” along with his daughter.
McDumbass needs to STFU. Let’s see him try and get the Gang of 14 together again to pass a “bipartisan health reform bill”. He’ll be lynched, and with good reason.
sorry John, I respect the office of the President, but not the marxist that now occupies it.
why doesn’t my senator get it?
Arizona residents, please vote him out in the 2010 GOP Primary. Please! No more RINOs!
“McCain added tried to hush the boos, reminding the room that the president of the United States is owed respect.”
It’s the OFFICE of the PRESIDENT which is Owed Respect, John, not the person. And the Voters have shown nothing but DISRESPECT for the Office itself by allowing Zero to hold it.
McCain can be such an ass for the sake of bipartisanship. He helped sink his own campaign with his “You don’t have to be scared of Barack Obama” line.
McCain is really such a...tool.
He's a socialist/marxist/communist, why would he like it?
this is why you lost McLoser.....
"fundamental differences in philosophy of government...blah blah blah"
I ‘boo’ every time he says “my friends”.
As I was walking up the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there,
He wasn’t there the other day,
I wish that he would go away.
Saying that Obama is sincere in his respect for the Constitution is saying that your spouse still respects his/her wedding vows after committing adultery.
McQueeg needs tried for treason!
I don’t recall him respecting the office of the president this way when Bush was president.
Vote for Marco Rubio.
This is why, for the first time ever, I voted libertarian in the last election.
All I have to say is if the GOP picks the McCains, the Romnys, the Huckabees, the Gulianis, the Thompsons et al. to run again, I don’t care how much Obama is screwing up, we will lose by a real landslide this time around.
As much as it pains me, If the GOP is going to keep letting McCain speak for them, they need to get Rid of the Elephant and replace it with BOZO.
Obama understands the Constitution, he just does not like what it has represented from its very beginnings. For example, the first right in the Constitution is the right to private property. Obama does not favor that right...he likes “renters”. He has commented in the past that important redistribution and other socialist issues were not accomodated at the time of the Constitutions’ writing related to his lifelong marxist likings.
McCain is vastly remiss and misinformative in not qualifying and expanding his statement, as he is remiss about so many other matters, in common with so many of his Senate colleagues.
You gotta love a bunch of old geezers taking money from Social Security well beyond what they put into it and on medicare that is bankrupt calling into question the constitutionality of Obama spending money....
The custom of "Senatorial Courtesy" really doesn't extend to the President.
"why doesnt my senator get it?"
Oh, McQueeg gets it alright, just as my own two corrupt traitors (Feinstein & Boxer) get it. All three have breached their sworn oath of office and deserve to be removed.
Our problem can best be understood now as an open fight between the corrupt political class in Washington (employees) and the voters (employer). For quite a long time now, these losers have behaved and acted as if we work for them rather than as provided by the U. S. Constitution.
Why we need to get rid of the Republican party, part XXXVII
Interest happens; inflation happens; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are REAL.
Time to review elementary school lessons.
Mercy, what a clueless tool.
John you keep digging that hole deeper. Please, stop.
What are you smoking....are you a mole troll? At any rate if you meant to say what you said you are an idiot of major proportions!
theres audio proving that obama does understand the constitution, “its a document of negative liberty”, he just don’t like it or respect it
Did you leave your brain somewhere?
” Interest happens; inflation happens; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are REAL. “
How about ‘compound interest’??
So says the man who spearheaded Campaign Finance Reform. I’ll take my constitutional lessons elsewhere Senator.
It could happen. On the other hand deflation is also real.
I just received my email from Cindy McCain offering me the opportunity to sign John’s birthday card, and donate if I choose.
Too bad I can’t say what I want to say to my Senator.
I won’t be signing or donating. Last time my Senator acted like a Conservative is when he picked Palin.
Amen. He was interviewed long before he had aspirations for the presidency, and confessed then that the Warren [Supreme]court had not been “radical enough,” that he objected to the “negative liberties” in the constitution (which he quite correctly perceived, the expression of what the government is NOT allowed to do) and than expressed a desire that a more “redisributive” approach should be used in the way the Constitution should be interpreted. In fact, he understands the Constitution as Bill Ayers does, They don’t want to merely tweak it here and there. They wants to scrap it and reconstruct it in their own image. In the fifties this guy would have been impeached for holding views like this.
I was at one of this asswipe’s campaign rallies just before the election. Instead of rallying the troops to push forward to victory, he kept saying things like ‘I know we can work with Obama’. ‘We can work with the democrats in Congress..’
People who should have been there to cheer on their candidate was instead treated to pacifist crap like that. McQueeg heard plenty of boos that day.
I’m sorry I ever cast a vote for that moron.
McCain added tried to hush the boos, reminding the room that the president of the United States is owed respect.
This coming from a man who never missed a chance to poke President Bush in the eye at just the right moment.
“I’m sure that he respects the Constitution of the United States. I really do. I’m absolutely convinced of it,” Sen. McCain said.
Of course John. We’ve always had 25+ “Czars” in every administration to date.
That really helped didn't it?
I am from AZ, do not like McCain either (hard to get him out of office). So far I have seen no candidate that could beat him in the next election.
Why we need to get rid of RINOs. A Republican party full of genuine conservatives is exactly what is needed.
President Obama...doesn't respect me, or my beliefs. Why should I respect him?
The office...okay. But not him..
Yeah, Rahm I'm a racist for saying it!!
He understands it... He just doesn’t agree with it.
