Skip to comments.John McCain keeps up Libya push
Posted on 06/14/2011 10:56:31 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday that a resolution hes spent months crafting on Libya will likely call on the White House to increase its communication with Congress, an addition that could help pick up support for the stalled measure.
Last week the Foreign Relations Committee postponed a mark up of McCains resolution, written in partnership with Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.), fearing the measure would not get enough votes.
I think as the situation has evolved in Libya, and frankly the lack of consultation and reporting to Congress has gone on, then we will be working on more specific language about requiring some consultation and reporting to Congress, McCain told reporters Tuesday.
McCain was adamant, though, that the thrust of the resolution will not change. The resolution backs President Barack Obamas use of force in the region.
But fundamentally, I dont envision us changing it, McCain said of the overall resolution. It will be done in a bipartisan fashion.

Will Mc Queeg just not GO AWAY???
Take your little diva with you.
McCain is in on the “New World Order” scam, with the Bush clan, and Obama. I wonder what McCain was promised? His wife is worth 150 million.
Sure Q’Daffy’s a terrorist who more than deserves a quick boot to his 72 virgins, but what’s going to replace him? There is no clear endgame here and we may end up with worse than what we got, so we just need to stay the hell out as much as possible.

“There is no clear endgame here and we may end up with worse than what we got, so we just need to stay the hell out as much as possible.”
I have made that point here on a few occasions.
Better to deal with the devil you know, then the devil you don’t know.
In the Army, we called them butt-buddys
Maybe he would have won anyway, but she didn't have to make it easy for him, and she didn't have to help him fill his coffers. I'd love to see McCain trying to retire massive campaign debt about now rather than sucking up to liberals.
I would have liked to have seen McCain knocked down a few pegs even if he had been elected with the message the "Politics as Usual" isn't cutting it any more.
McCain has not changed one iota since before the 2008 election, unless it has been to cozy up even more with the liberals, other countries (looking at you Mexico) and now with Obama himself.
I know people say that she "owed" McCain, but I reject that outright. "Politics as Usual" is harmful to America and harmful to our interests.
With all of the sickening left-loving McCain has done since 2008, I will need to hear some clear specifics about why she supported him, before I can commit to supporting her in the future.
/sorry to change the subject, but this comes to mind every last time McCain gets himself in the news by sticking his nose in things in the name of "reaching across the aisle". Grrrrr.
I’m right there with you.
McLame threw the election on purpose.
Any one who partners up with John Krry is a POS.
Any one who partners up with John Kerry is a POS.
How did this man become the Republican Presidential Nominee in 2008?
Handpicked by the Mainstream Media...originally to allow Hillary Clinton to ascend to the presidency.
Then the perfect storm happened and an even more Marxist and PC candidate appeared from the shadows and pushed her aside.
Didn’t matter though. McCain remained the willing dupe regardless of the opposition.
Continued treatment as royalty. As one of the favored few it is easier he understands why our Senators and Congressmen wish to remain in office until they are physically and mentally unstable.
Why do you refer to the New World Order as a scam? I view it as a well thought out plan to control the world’s economy and population.
I can hardly type this without gritting my teeth, but the correct answer is, "It was his turn".
I have the sick, sinking feeling that its going to end up being Romney's "turn" this time. I so want to be wrong.
