Skip to comments.McCain: Obama should have acted faster ("we need, now, to support" Obama)
Posted on 03/20/2011 8:20:29 AM PDT by rabscuttle385
President Barack Obama should have moved sooner against Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday.
Earlier action, the senator said on CNN's "State of the Union," would have been more effective in weakening the grip of the controversial leader, who's deployed his forces against rebelling civilians.
"He waited too long, there is no doubt in my mind about it," McCain said of the president. "But now, it is what it is. And we need, now, to support him and the efforts that our military are going to make. And I regret that it didn't - we didn't act much more quickly, and we could have."

Go support a load in your Depends you old POS!
Why on Earth did the voters of Arizona return this idiot to office?
Sorry, Juan-Boy. You’re asking far too much.
Now, crawl back under your rock and STFU.
McCain is admitting that Obama botched the situation and mishandled the crisis, but now expects us to rush out and support his failure to lead? What kind of perveted logic is that?
You mean like the DNC supported Bush?
Pray for Our Military
Barack Obama’s “Celebrate Failure 2012 World Tour”. Charming.
Sorry, Juan. No sale.
Same reason Nevada sent Stinky Harry Reid back to the Senate. Conservatives and Republicans were outgunned by the commies and the unions. Both got the illegal alien vote.
Looks like McLame is trying to gain Congressional Support(which Obama had yet to seek) for the military action Obama is taking against a nation that was no threat to our national security.
Naming wars is stupid enough but Operation Odyssey Dawn? The start of a journey that lasts for years and years? Nice.
once again mccrazy proves he is a moron. he thinks its a good idea for the American military to be assisting radical muzzies who are supposed to be our ENEMIES ?
who do these idiots think will replace qaddaffy ?
these ‘revolutions’ are part of a plan to create an islamic sharia state under the control of iran.
Just out of curiosity, Obi Juan, did Obama seek Congressional approval for this action?
Al Qaida is on the side of the insurgents and that gives me pause. Incidentally, Iran's freedom fighters need help and that should be our priority, but the Messiah doesn't like them because they are pro American :-|
“Why on Earth did the voters of Arizona return this idiot to office?”
Especially when they had a great chance to turn the page and elect a real conservative. Mystifying.
I can’t believe this guy is still on the national stage.
He gave so much for this country but keeps mouthing himself into irrelevancy. My deepest fear is that the RINO”S in the party will get someone just like him nominated again insuring ZERO’s re-election.
Support the military and their efforts? For sure.
Support the indecisive loser who put them in Libya under unproductive circumstances? Not a chance, Juan, you old fool.
Lindsey Graham must be furious! LOL
There are $30 million reasons he was reelected. Much of it from his presidential campaign.
Pray for America
That means, don't hold your breath for Obama to take action in Iran. He's satisfied with the level of anti-americanism within the already established government. No change needed. Judging by Obama's pattern, I would imagine Obama's next war will be with Kuwait.
“Operation Odyssey Dawn”
It’s a dreamy, fabulous name evocative of the new ‘flamboyant’ influence in today’s military. /sarc
No, I’m not supporting him.
The punk ass is on his own.
McLame has been supporting Obama since the campaign, why should he change now.
“these revolutions are part of a plan to create an islamic sharia state under the control of iran.”
Exactly right. Iran wants to set up a caliphate.
Man! Am I disgusted! Thank heavens, we have Jon Kyl, pretty much a man of his word!
I aint supporting Obama or anyone in this regime. I will support the poor SOBs that are ordered to put themselves in harms way and pray for their safe return. But Obama get nada, zip, zilch....
McCain is the reason we got saddled with this douche bag to begin with so he can kiss my ass too.
You gave him more than enough support for both of us n your pathetc "campaign" in '08.
He lost two multimillion dollar jets or was it three? Letting the enemy beat on you for five years when you had a few other choices...he never fought.....what did he give other than bad decisions. I am not one of those who chooses to give him kudos for torture when thousands of other service men and women captives experienced the same. McCain is not the sharpest knife in the drawer....someone is getting rich somewhere because of his reelection....bad, bad, choice!
FUJM and FUBO. That is all.
WE should not support this action.
Just as is happening in Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, etc, once the leadership is gone we have no idea what or who will be the replacement.
They could be every bit as brutal as the other regimes in the beginning and suppress the natural rights of their citizens with no one to stop them.
Additionally, those new in power would have nothing to lose by being hostile to America or any other country.
They likely will come from positions in society that never afforded them the luxuries and posh lifestyles they will enjoy.
We don’t need the Muslim Brotherhood running these countries.
What we do need is an ordered change with people we support.
This whole mess is going to end in chaos.
We need now to again thank the Republicans in Arizona who renominated him in the primary.
This whole mess is going to end in a caliphate controlled by Iran.
Tah Dahhhh! Winnuh!
You are the only other Freeper I have seen who believes that is the direction the ME is headed.
This cancer will take over the ME and continent of Africa with what will most certainly become the stronger Islamic nations forcing it.
If there is a wrong side to a problem McCain is always on it. So dependable.
...and be labeled a "Peace In Our Time democracy" by Obama Inc.
Title for post 16:
“When our media picks our candidates”
Operation Odyssey Dawn
Last time I heard, wasn’t Odyssey supposed to refer to a LOOONNNNGGGG journey?
Too bad McStain isn’t as passionate about action on our SW border.
WHat do they have on McCain?
Nah, there are plenty of us around. The problem is that there are so many dang threads on these topics that you can’t see most of them!
Or some other appalling NewSpeak rubbish.
McLame needs to STFU.
McCain a Neo-Con who never saw a UN action he didn’t support.
Shut up you old pusbag McStain. I don’t support you or the Kenyan clown.
Here he was at a rally supporting the KLA-terrorists.
