I remember him backing one of the biggest crooks during the S&L crash of the early '90s. Thanks for your service, Senator, but isn't it time to recognize you aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer?

Lots of people who were with him in the Hanoi Hilton aren’t very grateful for his service. The fraud has gotten rich and famous when he should have gotten court martialed. JMO

I didn’t know the part about the Hanoi Hilton.

His ditching the wife who got sick while she waited for him for a beer heiress who could finance his political career was, uh, questionable.

The only catastrophic thing was Arizona re-electing this mindless jackass. That’s why obama only talked to Tweedle Dee (Graham) and Tweedle Dum (McCain). He knows they will agree with anything he does. Traitors.

When you can’t come up with logic and reason regarding our interests, you resort to fear-mongering.

I guess this is the great strategy Obama and McCain cooked up to get Congress to go along with their ludicrous scheme.

“but for whom?”

Why the War Party, silly!

Iraq’s over, Libya was too quick...need an appetizer before facing Iran. Then China! And Russia!

Liked a decade of war?

President Gains McCain’s Backing On Syria Attack

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/03/world/middleeast/syria.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0

“Mr. McCain, who has been arguing for two years that the United States should support a moderate Syrian opposition, said he strongly urged the president on Monday to provide anti-tank and antiaircraft systems to the opposition and to attack the Syrian Air Force.

Mr. Obama indicated that “he favorably viewed the degrading of Bashar al-Assad’s capabilities as well as upgrading the Free Syrian Army,” Mr. McCain said in an interview.

Administration officials have told Congress that the C.I.A.’s program to arm the rebels would be deliberately limited at first to allow a trial run for American officials to monitor it before ramping up to a larger, more aggressive campaign. American officials have been wary that arms provided to the rebels could end up in the hands of Islamic extremists with ties to Al Qaeda. “

Great, let’s arm Al Qaeda...

Oh, and look at this flashback:

June 2013:

Russia asks Turkey for info on sarin terrorists

http://www.turkishweekly.net/news/151261/russia-asks-turkey-for-info-on-sarin-terrorists.html

“Russia has called on Turkey to share its findings in the case of Syrian rebels who were seized on the Turkish-Syrian border with a 2kg cylinder full of nerve gas sarin.

Russia’s top foreign official Sergei Lavrov tolday said the Kremlin wanted to get clear on the issue of chemical weapons used in Syria, since the allegation had taken on the role of a trading card in the conflict, becoming a focus of constant provocations.

“I do not rule out that some force may want to use it [the rumour] to say that the “red line” has been crossed and a foreign intervention is needed,” the minister said.”

With the way some of these clowns are behaving, I’m really starting to wonder if they haven’t dealt with enough filthy people that they now face dire physical threats if they can’t deliver on their end of the bargain.

I personally couldn’t care less if they face danger as a result of their own behavior. If they want amnesty and protection they need to come clean with the American people, otherwise let them pay their own pipers.

McCain seems very concerned about US “credibility” among allies and adversaries.

I don’t think either think much of Obama’s “credibility”. Certainly the British Parliament, Russia and China have concluded that his Administration has no credibility. Five years of lying has consequences.

It would be bad for McCain and his fellow star travelers...they are desperate to open a new acting school for leftist political hacks in Syria.

Actually, no, Sen. McCain. It would be no such thing. Barry the Boob could launch all the missiles he wanted even without Congressional approval. However, after his abject humiliation at the hands of the British Parliament last week, it would be just one more scalding embarrassment for Barry the Boob, but hey...that's what leadership is all about, right?

“... the United States should support a moderate Syrian opposition ...”

Obama and the Kerry State Department are incompetent to discern between “moderate Syrian opposition” and al Qaeda. Even the Bush Administration, with much more talent and a genuine interest in American success, couldn’t pick out good opposition candidates in Afghanistan and Iraq.

How much is McCain being paid off to be the scapegoat for Obama’s Syria stance? Must be a bundle ... or some pretty good gig for someone in his family.

Yes, because we wouldn’t want to stand in the way of this limited in scope and duration punitive action, would we. Let him do it on his own. Even if it were the 100% right thing to do, this is not the way it should be done. It’s not even remotely serious....or would that be Syria-ess.....

McCain would not have given us anything like Obamacare. There would have been no stimulus package, no Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the White House, no Solyndra, no school lunch program, no Eric Holder, no Janet Napolitano, no Chuck Hagel, and the armed forces would not have seen 4 admirals/generals fired in 5 years. There would have been no Benghazi, no SEAL Team 6, no Extortion 17, and NASA would still have 26,000 employees in Alabama and Florida. There would have been no Cass Sunstein, no Hillary, no Rahm Emanuel, no Czars, no funding for planned parenthood, no need for the Tea Party, 15,000 fewer IRS employees, and no tax increases.

So, yeah, I am one of those people who think he would have been better.
