McCain praises Obama's evolution in office
UPI ^ | Jan 23, 2010 | UPI

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.

Obama may have learned a few things, but obviously McCain hasn't:

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.

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.

Sick man. Embarrassment. He should have the sense to keep his silence now. He just can't get over signing that bogus confession in Hanoi. He's going to relive it the rest of his life, but in the public domain, sadly enough. All the way back to 2008 this whole series of sucking-ups to Obama are episodes of traumatic re-enactment.

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.”

This is Mister McCain's way saying..."Owww...Thank you, sir, may I have another?"

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?

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.

Arizona, you’ve done us... well someone proud. Obama perhaps...

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.

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...

1. Senile
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

And Little is said about Palin, propping this ass clown up on her Tea Party Rally stage which helped defeat the real Conservative challenging McNuts. And then later endorsing him several times on Prime Time occasions. The “She owed him a limited favor” excuse went out the window the moment she claimed he was a “patriot Conservative worthy of Tea Party support.”

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!
