Although Russia’s foreign minister denied Tuesday that NSA leaker Edward Snowden had ever entered the country, Sen. John McCain said the unfolding drama is “reminiscent of the days of the Cold War.”

“You hear a Russian spokesman saying he’s not in Russia and that every shred of evidence indicates that he is,” the Arizona Republican said. “Look, we’ve got to start dealing with Vladimir Putin in a realistic fashion for what he is. He’s an old KGBColonel Apparatchik that dreams of the days of the Russian Empire, and he continues to stick his thumb in our eye in a broad variety of ways.

At least the Old KGB apparatchik looks out for his people.

We can't say the same for a damn traitor who just sold his country out to Mexico.

Shut up McCain. You are nothing but an old turncoat who needs to go home and sit in your rocking chair. All you do is stir up trouble. Frankly I find myself siding with the Russians more every day.

US relations with the Russian Empire were cordial, Russians helped us during the War of Independence...

Despite being geographically removed from the American colonies, Russia under Catherine the Great significantly affected the American Revolution through trade and diplomacy. While Catherine personally oversaw most of Russia’s interactions with the American colonies, Britain and the other nations directly or indirectly involved in the Revolutionary War, she also entrusted certain tasks to her foreign advisor Nikita Panin, who often acted on Catherine’s behalf when it came to matters of international diplomacy. Catherine and Panin interacted with the British government through James Harris, an Earl at the Russian court.[1] The decisions made by Catherine and Panin during the Revolution to continue trade with the colonies, remain officially neutral, refuse Britain’s requests for military assistance, and insist on peace talks that linked a resolution of the American Revolution with the settlement of separate European conflicts indirectly helped the Americans win the Revolution and gain their freedom.

Juan McCain the great candidate for President of the USA nominated by the dying Republican Party. Romney the great and next Jeb Bush the great, see any problems here?

This ridiculous old coot is just trying to pimp his image after voting to destroy the United States by legitimizing a mass invasion, unseen in our history.

EVERYONE should just turn their backs on him, and send as much money as you can to the Recall McCain campaign.

Don’t forget Bob Dole. He earned a spot among the designated losers (one more and they could become the Washington Generals basketball team).

John McCain is not President, a rather immature and full-blown narcissist is in that job. A person that Putin cannot bring himself to respect in any way. By failing to make that distinction available to the voting public in 2008, Senile, er, Senator McCain has largely lost his authority to criticize the head of another nation, if he cannot recognize the failings of the titular head of his own country.

In calling for Obama to fail in office, it was intended that what was supposed to fail was the AGENDA espoused by the Current Regime, not the nation once known as “the United States of America”. Unfortunately, we all got sucked into that vortex, and there is little hope for relief before The Won exits from office.
