Real Clear Politics ^ | August 25, 2009 | Real Clear Politics

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.

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.

I imagine he does understand it, sort of. The problem is he doesn't like it.

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.

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.

and fellow Florida voters, send Charlie "Obama hugger" Crist to the trash can too. Someone needs to publish some signs with pictures of Crist hugging Zero at Zero's staged town hall in Fort Myers last February.

Vote for Marco Rubio.

He's sincere? Variation on the “road to hell is paved with sincere intentions”. McCain makes a fine back bencher, sincerely.

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.

Sometimes McCain forgets that Obama is no longer a member of the Senate so it's OK to call him a liar (and some other things).

The custom of "Senatorial Courtesy" really doesn't extend to the President.

"why doesn’t 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.

The money the "Old Geezers" put into Social Security was worth a lot more in terms of buying power than the dollars they get out of it today.

Interest happens; inflation happens; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are 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.
