The News, West Hartford, Conn. ^ | 2011-08-18

Posted on 08/18/2011 8:11:38 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) today released the following statement applauding President Obama for calling on Bashar al Assad to leave power in Syria, and urging other nations to also call for and take action to end the Assad regime:

“We applaud President Obama for calling on Bashar al Assad to leave power, a position we have long argued should be the policy of the United States.

(snip)

“We urge other nations to join the United States in demanding an end to the Assad regime, whose legitimacy is clearly exhausted. We also hope that other tangible actions will be taken as soon as possible, in coordination with our friends and partners around the world, to support the democratic transition that the Syrian people are risking and losing their lives to achieve.

When is mccain going to go ahead and endorse obama? Someone start a pool.

We won’t need a pool on Graham. He’ll be one second behind his fudge buddy.

Are they kidding??? Why don't they remind Obuma of his statement during and after his election,...we should stay out of other countries businesses. He went around the world apologizing for the US sticking our noses in other countries businesses. Now because he feels it's OK, these RINO’s think how wonderful our leader is. Let's applaud him. Instead they should be leading a move to impeach the lying, deceitful POS.

The Three Stooges Ride Again. Graham never tires of having his head up McCains rectum. Pansy

Lieberman is a toadie. I just wish these three would get voted out. Theirs should not be a job for life.

We need the entire R contingent in DC to issue a statement requesting that Obummer leave office. Or, just stay on vacation for the next 15 months.

It’s going to be awhile for McCain, he put on his “I’m a conservative!” Halloween mask last year and was re-elected to another Senate term.

Oh, yeah. That “maverick” McCain—the Academy pugilist—pulled every punch he threw at Obama in 2008. It’s more like he chased Obama into the Presidency than ran a race against him.

Sec. of State Hillary Clinton made the Assad must leave announcement. Greta Van Sustern said that Hillary looked more Presidential than Obama did/does? I was waiting for Hillary to pull an Alexander Haig thing of:”As for now, I’m in charge here?” Obama would have probably had a conniption then?

Did Juan, Joey and Lindsey get to kiss Barry’s feet before he took off on vacation? I sure hope so.

Since it was not obama making the demand, these three may felt like they needed to “pretend” that it was obama instead of Clinton who was asking Assah to step down, so the U.S. would not look as weak as she is at this point. To give them the benefit of the doubt, they may have been trying to help. Just a thought.

2 Thessalonians 2:11

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Romans 1

22. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.

McLame told the world that we had nothing to fear from his esteemed senate friend, barak obama. He knew who obama was/is and told us that.
guess mccain agrees with him. Doesn’t fuss much about baraq’s actions either.

Thanks much there.

Call me cynical. But I don’t trust this administration. Of course on the surface Assad leaving is a good thing. However. What the aytch is really going on here? Silence when dinner jacket kills his own people? But high dudgeon when these “secular” governments do what they have always done. Has B.O. taken sides in the struggle between shia and sunni?

The inside the belt way political make up could not be any clearer.

The Democrat party has been completely taken over by the progressives. Half of the Republican party the same.

We the people have a tough job ahead of us, cleaning out the idiots and fools that adhere to progressivism.

I am still of the firm opinion that....
Rino McCain and his rino campaign workers did not know anyone other than rinos and so assumed that all Republican politicians where rinos. They selected Governor Palin for the VP slot thinking she was the same as they and found an actual conservative in their midst and where horrified.

When Governor Palin moved the McCain campaign from eight points down to four points up in only three weeks, the progressives, both Democrats and rinos, panicked. They knew at that point that McCain was going to win the election and with Palin as Vice President she would be a shoe in as President in 2012 or 2016. Having a true conservative as president would derail the progressive agenda for years and they would do anything to avoid that.

Progressives, believing that the end justifies the means, and being in a full blown panic now, ordered the CEO of Lehman brothers to tank his business, creating an economic down turn they believed would cause more independents to vote Democrat. They also ordered McCain and his campaign workers to lose the election, which they managed despite Governor Palins efforts.

You might be right,but with all the badmouthing against Republicans by Obama, it just seems like these senators are kissing butt here?
