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.
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.
Am I the only one that came in here thinking they were praising Obama for stopping deportations of illegal immigrants...hmm
Yeah, the Libya won’t last months or weeks but will be over in days crowd strikes again.
What or how do they plan to back this up? We going to war again?
It worked for Roosevelt. (?)
Wow! The Bobsey Twins turned into the Three Amigos.
They deserve each other.
Time for them to be FIRED!!!
Scary part about it is I suspect McCain voted for Obama in 2008.
YES!! I know he was the one the running against Obama!
with pubies like mccain and graham why do we need an opposition party?
FUBO! and your DemO’s and RINO’s too.
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.
h/t to martin_fierro for the graphic
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” McCainthe Academy pugilistpulled every punch he threw at Obama in 2008. It’s more like he chased Obama into the Presidency than ran a race against him.
The three stooges support Obama. Pathetic.
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.
Senator Coburn did today too. They are all coming out for President Obama. I wonder why.
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.
So the Paulists are coming out of the closet as Syrian dictator fans? Unsurprising.
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 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.
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.
Most likely, but I like to think well of folks. LOL
