McCain: Obama Responsible For Leaks
turn 10 23, ABC ^ | 6/10./12 | Ashley KilloughCNN

(CNN) -- Sen. John McCain continued his blitz against the Obama administration Sunday, saying the president was responsible for the recent national security leaks--whether he knew about them or not.

"It's obvious on its face that this information came from individuals who are in the administration," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union." "The president may not have done it himself, but the president certainly is responsible as commander in chief."

His comments came after the president himself forcefully dismissed the idea on Friday that the leaks came as a form of political strategy for the White House - a claim made by some Republicans on Capitol Hill, including McCain.

McCain: Obama Responsible For Leaks
Doesn't saying anything negative about Obama go against this doddering old fart's grain?

What about the story in last week or two about the WH leaking info to Hollywood about the alleged killing of Osama Bin Ladin? Wasn’t that classified? Shouldn’t that be part of the investigation?

It certainly goes against his idiotic idea that there is nothing to worry about with Obama as prez.

Colon Powell?

Colin Powell knew that Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was the source who revealed the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame to syndicated columnist Robert Novak in 2003 and neither said a word...just let the MSM, talking heads etc. run wild with hypothetical stories. Ask Scooter Libby if those two men should have gone to prison..............YES.

O;d Wormtongue is responsible for Obama. If he had done HIS job while running for president we wouldn’t be stuck with this loser we have now!

Of course Odummy knows about the leaks. I’m sure his Sept/Oct surprise movie will contain alot of info that was leaked.

obama (small o used to denote disrespect) said that no one “knowingly” passed on the information. It will be the I didnt Know it was treason to pass along top secret information ploy.

Is there anything worse than having John McCain on your side?

This is the brain-trust that said we have nothing to fear from an Obama administration. As far as I know, he never recanted that foot-in-mouth moment.

He was a fool then, and a bigger fool now.

I thought Juan said during his campaign that Barry would make a great president.

Wish Mccain would have done this when he was running against Obama. Then we’d have VP Sarah Palin now on her way to becoming president.

The only things McAmnesty has done right , is this and choosing Sarah Palin(the best thing he did ever).

McCain long ago settle upon Obama saving America.

Obama was who McCain was running for. Obama was who McCain wanted to run, and Obama is McCain’s choice.

By the time McCain realizes Obama was the problem from the world ‘go’, Obama will be out of office.
