Sen. John McCain, whose endorsement of President Barack Obama's plan to launch military strikes against Syria provided the president a key Republican backer, faced vocal opponents of military action during a town hall in Arizona Thursday.

McCain has long advocated a more muscular American approach toward Syria, calling for a plan to oust President Bashar al-Assad from power. But on Thursday many people who showed up to a town hall in Phoenix said that getting more involved in the civil war would lead to unintended consequences.

How dare these little people presume to tell a US Senator what they want.

I saw some of this.

Given that McCain gets reelected with RINOs and Hillary supporter types help, its no surprise that he would get grief on this.

This has got to me the most unpopular thing that Obama has tried(with everyone but the elites ), and McCain wants the GOP to share the pain.

Eventhough I live in WV, I called one of McCain’s office in AZ yesterday. Forget about reaching hin DC. They are locked down. Must be a lot if incoming.

I mentioned I was sorry I voted for him for president and then told them what I thought of a war with Syria. For some reason they hung up on me.

Keep the pressure on!

McCain just got hung up on humming “Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran”, and being somewhat senile, it sort of took over his full attention span.

Better luck on your next online poker engagement, John.

He was playing pocket pool during the committee hearing. Like he gives a damn what they think. He’s an arrogant old fool.

Those are all true.

And so is the fact that they’ll vote for him anyway.

Because yes, they are that stupid.

I watched that it seems that John McCain holds back until the end and then really his response seemed bitter toward the lady (like HOW DARE YOU QUESTION ME!?).

Glad I didn’t vote for this fool in 2008 (I voted Baldwin-Constitution party)!

I HATE MCCAIN.

RE McCain:

On Drudge, there’s an article that says McCain stated that “boots on the ground will get Obama Impeached”

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/09/06/mccain-there-would-be-an-impeachment-of-obama-if-he-put-boots-on-ground/

So maybe he’s not so supportive as portrayed...

Then again, he got his ears burned off at a Town Hall meeting by his constituents...

McCain has a long history of not caring what the voters who keep voting for him have to say. It’s a symbiotic disease we have here in AZ.

Those people who spoke in the video did not hit the points about why we should not go to war in a very clear way, IMHO. Too much emotion.

I wish McCain would just resign . . . and take his boy wonder Lindsey Graham with him!

1) I think he just said this to get Republicans support of the resolution, not as a threat to Obama. This message is to us suckers not them just like w amnesty.

2) I dont doubt that Obama himself has no desire to put American soldiers inside Syria in the current context, its just too unpopular.. So Mccain figures he is making an irrelevent statement. But after we bomb them Syrians could respond in a way that changes that attitude.

If they respond in some effective way...?? Like capture a flight crew..?
