Skip to comments.McCain praises Obama's evolution in office
Posted on 01/23/2011 9:49:56 AM PST by Innovative
Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation," the Arizona senator had some praise for the man who defeated him in the 2008 presidential election.
"The president, I think, has learned a lot in the last two years as any president does. He is a very intelligent man. I think he's doing a lot of right things," he said.

What a fool he is.
Does anyone give a smelly Obama about anything McKennedy says anymore?
No he isn't, and no he's not.
What a disappointment McCain continues to be; so sad that we had to hold our noses and vote for him. The GOP better not send us another lemon for 2012.
What drugs is he on?
I am not suprirsed Sarah Palin ENDORSED and CAMPAIGNED for this nutcase.
He is so lost in politically expedient talk he has lost all thought and caring of what right and wrong is.
Not a fool but a sinister shill.
Ping for your “mccain lovers” (/sarc) ping list. ;)
More to “love” him for.
Sarah Palin supported McCain over a Conservative in the AZ Senate race. You can bet McCain will not be supporting Sarah Palin when she runs in 2012....not with McCain’s buddy in the White House
Arizona, you’ve done us... well someone proud. Obama perhaps...
John McCain is unfit to hold public office under the name of the Republican Party. Then again, the party seems to love him. And the party wonders why I loathe it.
Arizonans had a chance in 2010. It was a dark day when this miscreant was re-elected to office.
He will stab each of us in the back continually...
He’s a serial offender.
McCain evidently hasn’t looked at the national debt lately. What a fool.
Or for several hours afterward.
And there is more in another article:
“In the aftermath of the tragic massacre in Tucson, Arizona Sen. John McCain has publicly called President Barack Obama a “patriot” who’s goal is in using his presidency to “advance our country’s cause.”
“I disagree with many of the president’s policies, but I believe he is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country’s cause,” McCain said. “I reject accusations that his policies and beliefs make him unworthy to lead America or opposed to its founding ideals. And I reject accusations that Americans who vigorously oppose his policies are less intelligent, compassionate or just than those who support them.”
He just wants to set on Biden’s lap at the SOTU speech.
I disagree with John McCain, and believe he is at best a fool ,and at worst a cynical power hungry evil scumbag.
That N. Vietnamese SAM didn’t do a good enough job on this POS!
McDemocrat is no Conservative. Never has been.
John Sidney McCain.
Yes, an obsequious, weak-kneed approval of Mister Obama's pretend (as in FAKE) tack to the center is a good good way to get some heavy petting from the NYT, but it screws your country! Why can't you see the critical importance of honesty in the face of dishonesty?
("Foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution"? Ha!).
I think he is much worse than a “garden variety” RINO, who sometimes votes with the Dems, to our annoyance — he is actively undermining the GOP, and promoting the Dems, and of course gets a forum for this from the MSM.
Is McCain smooching up to Obama in hopes of being the next SecDef?
Mccain compelled the compromised RINO GOP in Arizona to maintain "open primaries". Enough democrats voted for mccain to keep him in office. When the RINO GOP made it clear they never intended to respect conservatives or true republicans, I dropped out of the republican party.
There's no consequence one way or another here. I can request any ballot for any party I want for an election.
My political beliefs are damned, not respected by the Arizona republican party. Until they close the primaries, they can go pound sand.
Everybody Loves Barry.
What an ass. Juan can’t wait to make deals with the commie.
Throw this ass out Arizona. Recall him.
Evolution? I thought that acquired characteristics can’t be passed along to the next generation.
The fools are the ones who bought his pre-election conservative schtick, supported him and re-elected him. McQueeg played them all.
LOL— not me — at all, i know a fraud when i see one
Well today’s statements alone, make any endorsement of anyone other than Obama a mute exercise. These comments from today will be used to nullify anything McCain has to say leading into the November 2012 election.
He can say he supports Palin, but then the Left can bring up his comments that Obama is doing a fine job.
This guy is one of the following...
2. A useless tool
3. A devout Leftist playing the foil to destroy the Right
I’m banking on the third.
If the left had not pushed through McCain’s nomination on the country he never would have been the GOP candidate, and it’s entirely likely ObaMao would never have been elected president. The left foisted McCain on us, and we took the bait. Shame on us.
This is precisely why McCain was One Big Assed Mistake, Republicans, in 2008.
Sick man. Embarrassment
I very much agree. The very least we can demand from this so-called “Republican” is silence. One RINO like McCain can damage the party more than ten mouthy Democrats.
4. All of the above
McCain,, 1st man in our history to go from P.O.W to TRAITOR,,he’ll sell America out at the drop of a hat.
Just like during the 2008 election McCain is campaigning for obama. Man, I regret voting for him. If those of us who voted for him just because of Palin had not voted or voted against him he may have gotten less than 30% of the vote and may have been defeated in the senate race.
AZ, you screwed up, as usual. You get what you deserve. Such as sheriffs like Dupnik. Brewer and Arpaio are your only bright spots but can’t make up for mccain.
“One RINO like McCain can damage the party more than ten mouthy Democrats.”
Exactly — and yet, McCain can’t seem to be able to do the honorable thing and at least shut up.
They pulled the same thing in California. We now have open primaries too.
While the Republican party didn’t push the initiative, they were absolutely mute on it prior to the election when it was approved by the voters. It would be impossible for a Conservative group to reason that allowing Democrats to help chose their nominee, would be a good thing. None the less, the Republican party in California saw no reason to openly oppose open primaries.
I am convinced the Republican party is out to destroy any vestige of Conservatism in this nation. That being the case, they are nothing more than facilitators of the Left, the Democrats, the Marxists, the Socialists, the Communists, and the Fascists.
The only reason that I have remained a Republican was to vote in the primaries, to hopefully help choose a Conservative for the nominee.
Now that I can do that from any party, what is the reason for me to remain registered as a Republican? Seriously.
I will be re-registering as an independent within weeks.
This Republican party death-wish is too much for me to tolerate any longer.
Ohfercryinoutloud, McCain....just get it over with and pucker up and kiss his half-black ass, will ya?
What a pathetic doofus. I guess he doesn’t realize that Obama holds him in contempt and is probably LHAO at this latest cringing attempt by McCain to be liked.
Remember when McCain suspended his campaign during the height of the financial crisis, returned to Washington, and had absolutely nothing to contribute. McCain Made Zero look calm and deliberate in comparison. Fool.
Yea, now he’s moved to the other dark side. Big deal.
Why is this surprising?
Most Freepers knew that once McCain was safely re-elected the first thing he would do is stab conservatives in the back.
I’m ashamed to admit I voted for this jerk...
Were it not for Sarah, he would have gotten 38% of the vote at best.
Sarah is the only reason i voted and campaigned for him.
Whoever said it first, their assessment was and still is right on the money: “The Democrat party is the evil party and the Republican party is the stupid party.”
I didn’t vote for him, I vote for Sarah. If McCain can be credited w anything its giving us Sarah on a national stage.
And ol’ Juan ran with it for the rest of his campaign, grandstanding in front of the Border, claiming to be dedicated to “Securing the Border” above all else once he gets reelected................
Message for Arizona and the Tea Party;..........SUCKERS!
The enemy never really let him go.
