John McCain's furious but not fast
Politico ^ | October 6, 2011 | Tim Mak

Posted on 10/11/2011 4:46:47 AM PDT by opentalk

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says he is “leaning towards” calling for the White House to appoint a special counsel to investigate Attorney General Eric Holder in the Fast and Furious gun-running operation, but wants to hold a meeting of the entire Arizona delegation first.

McCain told Fox News’ Greta van Susteren that if he were to call for a special counsel, he would do it along with a unified Arizona congressional delegation.

“We are leaning towards it, but I want to talk with the whole delegation and act as a unified delegation. We all represent the state of Arizona where a lot of this happened,”

...Earlier this week, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called on the White House to appoint a special counsel to investigate whether Holder lied to Congress.

"Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says he is “leaning towards” calling for the White House to appoint a special counsel to investigate Attorney General Eric Holder"

Thanks for that decisive action loser McLame.

Because your campaign was as lackluster as this, you are not President right now.

Sounds to me like Juan McLame had prior knowledge of the events that transpired with regards to the Treasonous Gun Smuggling Operation.

Wish he’d ride off into the sunset and take his portly, mentally-challenged daughter with him.

AZ Sheriffs call for independent investigation of Gunwalking operation

..Today ten Arizona Sheriffs demanded an independent investigation of Fast and Furious, a government operation that allowed more than 2,000 guns to cross the border into the hands of criminals in Mexico. In a news conference at the Arizona Peace Officers Memorial in Phoenix, the sheriffs called the ATF operation "unconscionable".

“Mr. Maverick” now wants to play “Mr. Consensus”. I wonder if he checked with his sweetheart... Lindsey?

He's sniffing the air to see if his scent is in the wind somewhere over the horizon.

McCain is not one to skin out his own skunks.

So any RAT in the Arizona delegation can veto the call for an SP, Juan?

Brilliant!

The Border Agent, Brian Terry was killed in his state with the use of an ATF gun.

McCain was all over the news advocating for Obama to go into Libyan war without congressional approval, pushing urgency to protect civilians.

Earlier he called the ATF operation interesting.

Don’t be too hard on the Senator. After all, didn’t he make a lightning quick decision to suspend his campaign and thereby further diminish any chance he had to challenge the “one”.

No, he is meghan without the brains.

Makes one wonder, just what kind of deal did the mugabe gang make with mccain.
F&F mostly happened in Arizona.
Arizona was sued by mugabe for trying to enforce federal law.
Lots of things going on in Arizona.
He is the senator from..... Arizona. But you wouldn’t know it from his actions.

Guess he sees himself as another one of those citizens of the world there.

Interesting, He is acting very guarded in how he talks and addresses it.

I agree, McLame smells blood in the air and is worried it is coming from his own hands.

McLame should watch the video at Zombies Do Atlanta to learn how a consensus is really built. Be sure to wave your fingers in the air!

Not from AZ -- from quick search, sounds like Grijalva is up for reelection.

Arizona’s GOP District One Congressman Paul Gosar has taken a lead role in exposing the scandal.

We’re still waiting to hear from CD 7 Democrat Raul Grijalva in whose district the murder of Agent Terry occurred. link

Let's export McCain to Mexico where the Narco gangs can kidnap “El Supremo Bloviatorus” for ransom. This is a test to see whether anyone wants him back. My gut says the majority would say, “No.” Sorry, babe, you lose. The other question is why the Narcu gangs would want this doddering gasbag in the first place?

Lots of things going on in Arizona.

Also from AZ,

Dennis Burke, AZ US Attorney forced to resign scandal, cover-up

U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke has submitted his letter of resignation —effective immediately. His resignation comes amid fallout of his knowledge of the ill-conceived and reckless operation that left Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry dead in a gun battle near Rio Rico, Arizona. Terry’s murder effectively ended the scheme.

Burke an attentive student of and longtime aide to Janet Napolitano, previously served as her Chief of Staff and was appointed to the Arizona U.S. Attorney post by Napolitano’s boss, Barack Obama.

McStain’s cheese has slipped off the plate. Time for him to go sit on the porch.
