Maybe he shouldn’t have led the charge to get involved in the first place. Can he even tell us why we got involved in their mess?

No kidding, the dumb SOB should be facing questions right along with Obama like why is he in such a big ass rush to commit America to everyone else’s wars while being the face of open border unprotected America.

God used a donkey to spread the word. Don’t care who gets it out, this needs to go mainstream by any available means.

McCain is doing the right thing here. He has made lots of mistakes. I often disagree with him. That does not mean we that we should not be pleased when he does something right.

LOL...old Bob Schieffer couldn't get McCain off the air fast enough.

This is undoubtedly the greatest amount of coverage (perhaps the only coverage) ABC has given Benghazi to date...much to their chagrin.;-)

Good point. At least he did something right for once and raised Benghazi on one of the Leftie networks in spite of their desire to talk about the really important topic of the weather (earth shaking, that’ll be a Pulitzer). ABC on the other hand, made a complete whiff from what I saw.

Since we obviously don’t think the Benghazi thing is a big deal, I wish this thread had been hijacked to discuss Sandy the Hurricane instead of McCain.

This Benghazi debacle brings to mind three of the biggest events in our nation’s history.
1. Watergate
2. The failed Iranian hostage rescue attempt.
3. Iran Contra

We have the Democrat Obama administration sending guns and support to terrorists throughout the Middle East. This makes Iran Contra look like a Sunday picnic in comparison.
A fight breaks out in Benghazi. The Democrat Obama administration fails to send military assistance to Americans under fire. Jimmy Carter at least tried to help the American hostages.
There has been a continuous attempt by the Democrat Obama administration to coverup what really happened in Benghazi. My understanding of Watergate is that the Republicans were trying to sneaka peek at some Democrat documents. Four Americans died at Benghazi including a United States Ambassador who represented each and every one of us.
The question still remains.....Why did Obama and Hillary intervene in the governments of Libya and Egypt and Syria? We’re they ever champions of the people of these countries? Of course not! They are a couple of Democrat grifters out to enrich themselves and the Democrat party. If I was Obama and Hillary, I would be high-tailing it to an embassy right now begging for asylum. I’m sure Cuba would take them. Can you imagine the coverage of those two grifters standing trial? It would kill the Democrat party. Again, if I was Obama, I’d double my personal security. The Democrats got rid of Kennedy for much less.

I’m going to keep asking why McCain was in such an all fired hurry to get involved in the first place. He must at least know why since he didn’t bother to let the rest of us in on the secret.

I see this as John McCain trying to hide under cover of playing the hero while doing absolutely nothing.

I agree. John McCain did the “right thing” here by putting the Benghazi debacle right into the lap of the Main Stream Media. His performance forces them to address it on the National stage, which should and MUST be done. This Cover-UP / Incompetence cannot be allowed to stand! It is a matter of National Security!

John’s past is irrelevant... this could have been done by any one of National stature, but not as effectively... Why is it relevant that he is a “loser” or that he advocated for involvement in Libya in the first place? Are you saying his judgement is so suspect so we must ignore the lies about what happened in Benghazi?

Don’t shoot the messenger! Be glad the Left thinks enough of him to give him a National Stage to expose the utter failure of the Obummer Foreign Policy and his administration’s total incompetence in the area of National Security.

Well done, John!

Shieffer didn’t bring up Benghazi...he asked a stupid Obama saves us from the Hurricane question. McCain is the one that turned the discussion to Libya.

His daughter should come get him by the hand and take him home!! In 2008, he wouldn’t listen to Hannity and those who spoke loudly about Obama’s deceitfulness. McCain helped put him in office. He’s a little late.

McCain is a good one to be doing this. He is more popular and may have a bit more credibility with the libs and Mitt can keep his hands clean and stay above the fray.

McCain and Linda are always great on tv when everyone is watching. What you have to be careful of is they have an obama syndrome of becoming someone completely different when they get in a bi=partisan committee on anything. t
They always yield to the left. We always get screwed. When that stops I will become a McCain fan. Not until.

I assume that you are talking about Obumbler getting the US involved in the so-called “Arab Spring”. He is the same ilk of incompetence as the Peanut Farmer Carter is, who threw the Shah of Iran under the bus and allowed the Ayatollah Khomeni and his eveil regime come to power. Obumbler threw Mubarak and Gaddafi under the bus and much worse, allowed Al Quaida and the Muslim Brotherhood to come into power.

>>LOL...old Bob Schieffer couldn’t get McCain off the air fast enough.<<

Just goes to show that one shouldn’t trust someone else’s description, but check it out oneself, I guess.

As someone else pointed out, it was CBS, not ABC as you thought. As for your claim that “Schieffer couldn’t get McCain off the air fast enough,” I got the exact opposite impression. He let him talk for some time, and even asked follow up questions. At the end of the interview, he even seemed satisfied, rather than upset.

CBS has Sharyl Attkisson reporting on F&F, and now this. I suspect CBS is turning out to be the first leak in the MSM firewall that Obama has built up around him. I think the next week is going to be interesting, now that this story is turning out to be huge, and is finally breaking outside of Fox, Drudge, and the internet sites covering it closely.

As for McCain, he was a lousy candidate and has compromised our principles (maybe not his, but ours) way too much in the past, but he did Romney a huge favor getting this out on a Sunday morning network show. Now if it would just get some legs...

I’m talking about that sleazebag John McCain who was cheerleading from day one.

If you want to talk to a sheep who only notices what is convenient, I suggest you talk to someone else because that ain’t me.

I concur, McCain didn’t mince words on Benghazi and he wasn’t gonna let Schiefer get away without discussing it.

Yes. Sharyl Attkisson has done an incredible job on F and F and now Benghazi.

But her work is completely out of character for CBS.

Shieffer is a Democratic shill...if you can't read his face and see his discomfort...perhaps your respect for Attkisson (I share such) has blurred your vision.
