McCain: Obama Should Call for Mubarak to Resign
Newsmax ^ | 2011-02-10 | David A. Patten

Posted on 02/10/2011 5:17:30 PM PST by rabscuttle385

Arizona senator and 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain is warning that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s decision not to step down could touch off “a much more dangerous situation,” and he called for the Obama administration to tell Mubarak he must resign immediately.

“The volatility of the situation was already very high,” McCain said on Fox News, “and I think it’s been ratcheted up dramatically.

“I think the United States had better be more clear in our message to President Mubarak, that we are very clear in our message that he needs to step down,” McCain said.

Asked by host Neil Cavuto if the Obama administration should call for Mubarak to step down immediately, McCain replied, “Yes.”

Why does McCain love the Islamic Brotherhood so much?

It’s a good thing that Juan McCain has solved the devastating effects of illegal immigration in AZ so he can stick his wrinkled nose into the affairs of the Egyptians.

Well, nothing like adding to the problem with these words. McCain needs to be quiet in public. (IMO, of course)

What make McCain think that Obama has that much influence with Mubarak that he would listen?

Actually it would put the US in a much weaker position if Obama made such a demand and it was ignored.

It is not the place of the President of the United States to tell any leader of a sovereign nation that he should resign, and it is certainly not Obama’s place to tell a real President to do so. We need to stay out of Egypt’s internal affairs, at least to the extent of not making things worse. Interfering would embolden the West’s enemies, and that would not be a good thing - so much so that I’m surprised Obama hasn’t done so.

Too bad McCain lost the election.

Oh wait, he didn’t. His alter ego Barry won.

Would an Obama vs McCain presidency be all that different? I doubt it.

I’m simple, no doubt. I read McCain’s statement and I ask myself:

“Better they piss in our tent or from our tent?”

Mubarak wasn’t perfect, but he pissed from our tent.

I’ve met McCain. Been around him for more than just a few minutes. Something is wrong with him in the head. He is a spooky fellow. He is incapable of listening to another human being. He just says stuff off the top of his head and believes he is 100% correct. I’m not sure what the deal is with him. Maybe jumping off jets that are on fire on a carrier or getting blown out of the sky or the Viet Cong or his head cancer messed him up. I don’t know. All I know is that he is totally bonkers. Mean SOB too. You do not disagree with him. I’ve seen him sit in a room full of people who are telling him he is wrong about something and he tells them too bad. And these were people he was trying to get money and votes from.

His wife is smoking hot. Beautiful woman. McCain looks ancient standing next to her. He needs to buy a barrel of viagra and go home to her. He has no business be in the United States Senate. He needs to be in a strait jacket in a rubber room.

Why doesn’t McCain resign? The American people rejected him just like the Egyptians are rejecting Mubarak.

McCain is an idjit. Hussein DID call for Mubarak to resign.

McCain and Hussein are pathetic: one is an old man looking for relevancy and the other is a young punk wandering and lost in foreign policy. Neither has a clue.

McCain is being consistent, remember he is a big supporter of Muslim causes.

He was a huge supporter of the Kosovo Liberation Army.

If anyone understood the lessons of the Tet offensive reality vs perception it should be John McCain. This is a very small number of Egyptians who have captured a stage in the capital but look around the rest of Egypt and understand that you are seeing a planned event executed perfectly with the encouragement of our President and the MSM.

There were more tea partiers here in the U.S. than rabble rousers in Egypt as a percentage of population. I wonder what conclusions the administration would draw from that?
