Skip to comments.Obama seeks Syria support from former foe McCain

President Barack Obama is inviting former foe Sen. John McCain to the White House, hoping one of Congress most intractable foreign policy hawks will help sell the idea of a U.S. military intervention in Syria to a nation deeply scarred by more than a decade of war.
In an interview with an Israeli television network, (McCain) said Obama has encouraged our enemies by effectively punting his decision to Congress. He and fellow Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina have threatened to vote against Obamas authorization if the military plan doesnt seek to shift the momentum of the 2½ year civil war toward the rebels trying to oust Assad from power.

Difficult to believe that headline.
His head is so far up Obama’s butt, he needs a mining helmet.
Obama is using this old fool McCain to encourage Congress to declare war on Syria. There is no such thing as a “limited strike” It will involve the US in a bloody Mideast conflict. Any Republican that votes for war must be severely punished.
In what universe did that happen?
The former foe part - right?
There was once some talk of cancer he had in his jaw or something. I’m thinking rumors of it being cured were lies and that he is suffering from debilitating brain cancer of the batshit crazy kind.
when it comes to pro-Islam matters they are blood brothers
What these two did in the privacy of the Oval Orifice would be very interesting.
ROTFL! During the 2008 election, McCain campaigned for Obama. That’s not really what I’d call a “foe”.
Twins separated at birth McCain clown & POTUS clown.
He was on F&F for an interview several years back and his jaw looked like a half of a tennis ball. They were trying to keep it hidden, filming him only on one side of his face but he kept moving his head so you could see where he had surgery.
Gee, for his sake, I hope it is quick and painless.
Where are the Bushies and Darth Vader on this? Coiin Powell?
Obama and his terrorist-loving toadie McCain
are PARTNERS to leave the US borders open,
and to arm al Qaeda.
Going to be a whole lot of a$$ kissing in this meeting. Guess who.
I definitely am not "hoping for his sake". I'm more concerned about "our sake" that it is quick and painless. Mainly quick. That man is certifiably insane and is a complete traitor, regardless of that other life when he was a prisoner of war. The two are now not related in ANY way.
McCain is a War Hero. He is not a good Senator though. He uses his war experience to claim credibility on any Military stance he takes. He allows himself to be used to further Obama’s whims. He actually told an older woman, at one of the McCain campaign stops during the run up to the 2008 election, that Obama wasn’t dangerous. How is he a Republican???
Kerry returned KLA money during presidential election only when the source was exposed - KLA financed operations via human organ trafficking, weapons trafficking and forced prostitution.
Odumbo is not hiding his playing cards well.
