McCain satisfied with war council shake-up (McCain, Graham praise Obama)
The Hill, Washington DC ^ | 2011-04-28

Posted on 04/28/2011 8:06:56 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

John McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, on Thursday indicated that he supports President Obama's new picks to head the Pentagon and CIA.

The Arizona senator appeared to be satisfied with Obama's decision to move CIA Director Leon Panetta to the Defense Department to replace Robert Gates and appoint Afghan commander Gen. David Petraeus to replace Panetta, even though he preferred another position for the general.

"I think so," he said when asked by France24-TV if the moves are wise.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of McCain's top allies on the committee, applauded the moves on Wednesday, saying he "could not be more pleased with these selections."

The Socialists in the Senate approve the appointments by the Marxist.

Graham and McCain might as well get in the shower with 0bama and drop the soap.

What pukes.

I don’t know which is worse: Leon Panetta at the CIA, or Leon Panetta at the Defense Department. It would make more sense to send him down to Cuba to replace Castro.

And frankly, Petraeus has turned out to be a loser, too.

I hope Petreus sees what’s happening and wants to do some damage control.

McCain is satisified with himself getting praise from the MSM. It’s his ego that needs feeding and the only way he can feed it these days is to raise his RINO horn proudly in the air for all to see. Go away McCain.

McLame and Gramnesty are just about as repugnant as any of the slimy Democrats.

These guys are working against any republican victory in 2012. In fact, I suspect they would condemn the GOP if we won all 3 branches calling it “unfair”.

You’re exactly right. They should switch parties. But they don’t even have the guts to do that.

Let’s just go with Trump & back him as a Tea party guy. What do we have to lose? What do we have to gain if not A Palin or a Bauchman (sp).

I looked up Panetta. He actually WAS in the Army for 2 years. I was surprised. I figured Zero would put a non-Military person in charge of our Defense. I guess 2 years is better than no years at all. Still not pleased.

Panetta is too emotional...I wasn’t comfortable with the guy before but now in Defense...he’s too lovey dovey style. What was his military record like I wonder.
