Posted on 07/21/2013 11:34:56 AM PDT by barmag25
On Sunday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) appeared on CNNs State of the Union, where he called President Obamas Friday comments on Trayvon Martin and race very impressive. He said, I think we should continue to make progress, but added that we still have a long way to go, even as he declined to second guess the verdict in the George Zimmerman case.
McCain stated that we were probably too optimistic about race relations in the aftermath of the election of the countrys first black president. I think old prejudices die hard, McCain said. We have made significant progress, but I think recent events highlight the differences that remain. McCain also said he believed that Stand Your Ground laws should be reconsidered in light of the Martin case, despite the fact that Stand Your Ground was never invoked by Zimmerman and he was acquitted on grounds of self-defense.

What a fool.
McCain is an a$$hole!
Progress? Maybe someday blacks will stop accusing EVERYONE ELSE of being racists, and look into their own damn mirrors for ONCE?
I can’t put my finger on it, but damn if mclame doesn’t look to be giving us the finger a lot since his failed run.
What is it going to take for him to go away? You reckon Airheadzona will keep re-electing him?
What an evil little man.
A bought and paid-for tool!
No fool like an old fool.
McCain has been completely absorbed.
I’m actually glad McLame lost to Obama, at least Obama hasn’t gotten us into WWIII with the Russkies, yet.
I find you, McCain (and 0bama) singularly unimpressive.
McCain has always been a progressive, just like his daughter..two peas in a pod
John Sharpton offers his view on race relations.......
What a tool.
Juan should put on a new slobber bib and retire.
I voted for him why? I used to think it was because at least he was not Barack Obama. But now I see I was wrong about that too.
I am impressed by McCain’s thoughts that Obama speech was impressive.
It aint a good impression either.
just how far will McCain go to kiss Obama’s rectum?
I don’t believe there is a bridge that goes that far.
McCain is a clear and present danger to America.
The Vietnamese should have kept him at the Hanoi Hilton, anything after that busted the Peter’s Principal all to hell.
The RNC believed that he was our best Republican and made him our Republican nominee.
Don’t. Ever. Forget. That. :)
The Hanoi Hilton did a job on his gray matter.
If John McCain had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin.
He has irritated me for a long time. Now I just despise him.
And if McCain had a daughter, she’d look like Jabba the Hutt.
The man has gangrene of the brain. He’s asking Obama for some of his old Hanoi Hilton broads. In new edition.
Thank the idiots in AZ for returning him over and over again.
I guess all you have to do is flash a military record and a photo of Reagan there and enough fools will vote for you however many times you run.
I have despised McCain for many many years and still don’t understand how he became the Republican nominee for President or even got reelected in Arizona after his failed presidential bid.
The stupidity of the voters astounds me.
Hey, hey. You are being very very very unkind to fools. They work hard at being fools. It just comes naturally to McIdiot. The day this guy disappears from the scene, the better off the Republic will be. Him and GrahamCracker both need to disappear and take about 250 RINOs with them.
McCain is a crispy old fool. I do hope the good folks in Arizona will vote his useless a$$ out next election.
He did, and she does.
Dear John McCain. Drop dead.
I’m sorry, but he was turned in the Hanoi Hilton. At the very least, he has major Stockholm Syndrome..
The Manchurian Senator.. FUJM
I'll say everyone was too optimistic. That's not the public's fault though -- inciting racial tension is the only thing the first post-racial president finds important enough to actually exert himself for.
There’s no other way to describe him. . . .he’s just an old “fart” that has run out of gas. His insignificance is overwhelming. Since he has decided not to fight for our country and the principles of our founders. . .he has lost his way.
Get a room!
Since when is it a president's place to advise people in their personal moral and spiritual journey? For five years, he's been preaching to white people on how they should act. Yesterday, President Obama piped up once again on how the Trayvon Martin tragedy should move us all to be a little less racist. Predictably, he threw in Malia and Sasha as paragons of virtue for being "better than we were on these issues."
Coming from a communist father, a hippie, secular humanist, socialist mother who abandoned him, and raised by fellow travelling grandparents, a sexually perverted communist mentor "Uncle Frank" and a gay transvestite Indonesian nanny, there's no way he could get away with this laughable pedagogical moralizing without the contrived family he totes around.
From the Friday speech:
And so, you know, we have to be vigilant. And we have to work on these issues. And those of us in authority should be doing everything we can to encourage the better angels of our -- nature as opposed to using these episodes to heighten divisions.
But we should also have confidence that kids these days, I think, have more sense than we did back then and certainly more than our parents did or our grandparents did, and that along this long and difficult journey, you know, we're becoming a more perfect union, not a perfect union, but a more perfect union."
Rhymes with Tool.
this dude will be to the left of carter before he’s done
According to McInsane, Trayvon had a duty to retreat and run from Zimmerman, but he didn’t.
Obama DID second guess the verdict. The jury believed Zimmerman (from the evidence) that he was attacked by Martin, who proceeded to punch him in his nose, knocking it crooked and bloodied, piled on top of him, banging the back of his head against the concrete pavement, attempted to wrest the gun away from Zimmerman. Obama takes every opportunity to stoke racial hatred and discord. - By the way, REMEMBER ANTONIO WEST! - Just another CREEPY BABY CRACKA, I suppose, by Trayvon’s definition. - The verdict in that case stank, too. -
Wow! I didn’t know McCain was such a dingbat!
If you consider a one-sided statement solely from the black perspective where the black community’s problems are blamed on white America impressive, then yes that was an impressive speech.
McCain’s days as a Republican in Arizona are numbered.Sure he wants to run again (what else would this failed disturbed man do?) and will change parties to do so.
When the crime statistics start reporting an insignificant difference, then we've made progress. Reducing black criminality to white levels should be the priority.
McCain remains the piece of excrement that he has been for quite some time now.
McCain should get himself checked out for a brain tumor.
LMAO! I was going to post this, but afraid I’d get totally
flamed! Glad you’re willing to take the hit. Thanks Gator.
Plus, the image of that fat, idiot daughter of his lounging
around the white hut would have sent be ‘round the bend!!
