Skip to comments.McCain: Obama Would Be Impeached for 'Boots on Ground' in Syria
Posted on 09/08/2013 7:20:07 PM PDT by lbryce
Sen. John McCain has warned that President Barack Obama could face impeachment if he put boots on the ground in Syria.
"No one wants American boots on the ground," the Arizona Republican told Phoenix CBS affiliate KFYI-TV on Thursday. "Nor will there be American boots on the ground because there would be an impeachment of the president if they did that.
"The fact is [Syrian President] Bashar Assad has massacred 100,000 people," McCain added. "The conflict is spreading
The Russians are all in, the Iranians are all in and its an unfair fight."

There isn’t a sleazier senator in DC.
Same old crap like his screeching for answers to what happened in Benghazi after cheerleading us into that mess.
So ... the US against Syria is a fair fight? what the heck is McCain talking about? Syria is winning against the terrorist rebels. If Russia and Iran were “all in” there would be no Syria.
How many THOUSANDS more will be crucified because of Obama
and McCain and the whoring, drunk Congress?
How many HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS more will be made
into Islamic slaves or beheaded
because of Obama and McCain and the whoring, drunk Congress?
Assad killed all of them? Not one single person died at the hands of
Al Qaeda the Free Syrian Army?
He massacred 100,000 people? That means the “rebels” have not killed anyone, or raped any women, or beheaded priests or killed civilians.
I am so sick of McCain, I wonder who votes for this nutjob.
He wouldn’t be impeached for beheading and roasting a troop of girl scouts on the White House lawn.
Not likely and McCain would vote against it himself, we all know this. Why would he say something like this outside of being completely brainwashed?!? Oh, wait...
What is the point of saying this, at this time?
I bet US boots are in there already with CIA.
Obama will be rescued by his mommy, the MSM.
And so should McLame.
Well, these days they have secret courts and spy systems to take care of all those impeachment questions.
McCain’s new nickname should be “Ping Pong Ball.” He just bounces from one end of the spectrum to the other, sometimes with only hours between.
Obama could rape a puppy on the front lawn of the white house and he wouldn’t be impeached.
His blackness protects him, and the charge of racism against anyone who opposes him protects him like a force field.
And it sickens me.
Absolutely....Can’t be....we don’t do spying...
I have never seen such a thirst for war from anyone. McCain should be put in a rubberroom.
McCain is such a doofus. There is simply no offense that Obama could commit that could rise to the level of impeachment. His race card will always prevail.
Hey McCain, we aren’t talking about ‘boots on the ground’ we are talking about bombing!
So this is why bomb Syria now ???
In My opinion,NcAmnesty is no hero. He was a total traitor in VietNam. He told the NVA everything he knew!!(including flight plans and tactics) and he was so loved by the bastards he had “special quarters”. After we bombed them into total submission ( NIXON), he was the first for prisoner release!! but he begged them “no don’t do that to me — put me in the middle of your capitulating release of POWS so I don’t stand out as your favorite” I am of the opinion that he was a coward and a traitor and I am not alone. Many prisoners still alive today hate MC amnesty>
Anytime McRino ticks me off I like to watch this video........
That would be the good citizens of Arizona including the buses full of precinct jumping illegals.
Boolsheet! You don' got the nads to do yourself, nevermind Odungo!
Up until now I’ve thought remarks here about McCain becoming senile were mostly hyperbole. Now I don’t. He’s expanded the force resolution to include, in effect, the total undermining of the Assad regime. If that happens and the MB/AQ he and the Mahdi support gain power in Damascus, we’ll have the choice of putting boots on the ground to try to capture Assad’s chemical weapons or have AQ bring them over here to wipe out the populations of one or more cities. About then that’ll be a compelling national security case for putting mucho boots on the ground in Syria ASAP. His being unable to see that pretty well proves he’s gone around the bend and isn’t coming back.
He has a head that looks like a sack of potatoes. Let’s call him Spud.
I am shocked at how our leaders are SLOBBERING to start a war. It’s sickening. They want to destabilize the entire Middle East. THEY WANT TO PUT INTO POWER REGIMES WHO KILL CHRISTIANS.
Re: "massacred 100,000 of his own people" ... my understanding is that 40K of these are Assad's own soldiers.
It's kind of like saying "Abe Lincoln, psychotic despot, slaughtered 620,000 Americans, his own people."
Well not exactly the same ... but you get the point.
Sure he would and I don’t give a flip what you guys want.
You little d***ks started this pissing up a rope trick and it needs to end.
Let Gazprom have their pipeline or whatever.
Europe doesn’t seem to have a problem with Syria and if they do THEY can form a coalition of their own and deal with it.
We trust McCain, just as do all of his lame Arizona voters who think he is a hero for getting shot down in one of the first missions in his career and spending 6 years doing who knows what in an enemy prison.
If those activities at all resembled what he’s been doing in the service of the people of this country, then we are entitled to wonder about that.
But we have every reason to ignore everything he has to say on these matters as crap
“He wouldnt be impeached for beheading and roasting a troop of girl scouts on the White House lawn.”
Joined by a group of enemies of the State.
Both sides are banded together in this effort for more than one reason.
Congress wouldn’t have the guts to impeach Obama if he was caught using the Declaration Of Independence and the US Constitution for toilet paper on the Capital steps in broad daylight on Independence day.
And if they did, the Senate wouldn’t vote to convict - and that includes John McCain.
They wouldn’t do anything to hurt the black poser’s feelings or damage his false self esteem.
Obamas interest in invading non-enemy Syria has nothing to do with Syria, poison gas, or children.
Obamas interest in bombing non-enemy Syria has everything to do with creating a long-lasting, controversial, DISTRACTION for Congress in order to keep Congress from defunding Obamacare/Boehnerkare.
Obamas Red Herring for the 9-11 Benghazi Massacre Coverup was Susan Rices fake Video story.
Obamas Red Herring for distracting Congress until Obamacare/ Boehnerkare kicks in October 1 is Obamas Crossing HIS personal Red Line distraction speech.
Obama speaks only for Obama, not the US Federal Government or America.
Well Johnny boy, better get the presses fired up and start printing the invitations because who exactly is creating the target lists for the upcoming fireworks display? Sure, satellites are useful, but there are many countries with special forces in Syria, and I’d be shocked if we weren’t one of them.
Yeah, that means that in 3 weeks, this dirtbag will be voting for it.
I think you are correct. They have toughed it out nicely. But you have got to wonder how long the MSN can hold out. I predict 2 more years. That’s if he doesn’t try for a third term.
Does he really expect anyone is going to believe him? Really?
I think he drinks too much and then says these things. I don’t know where the hell else it comes from. He gets worse every day.
did McCain just switch sides?
or does he even know what he is saying any more?
Wear are those guys in white coats?
After watching McCain’s performance at recent town halls in Arizona, it’s obvious the wheels have come off the old man’s wagon. The arrogance, the shifty avoidance of eye contact, incomprehensible rambling and inappropriate laughter should be reason enough to have him institutionalized right next to Nancy Pelosi. He seriously looked on the verge of crazy.
So every time a jihadist lops off the head of a Christian, Assad is blamed by McCain.
Since McCain has just announced to the world that he doesn't have the slightest idea what he is talking about will the media quit treating him as their favorite Republican?
When you are tortured by pros, everyone tells or dies. Your two examples are things already known by the enemy. The purpose is to break you for propaganda not to collect intel.
“Why so riled up now, King RINO?”
I bet he’s been getting a lot of crap from his constituents.
This stance is utterly phony. He knows that if we start an airwar, something is likely to happen that will juice the American public up for further intervention.
Remember the Gulf of Tonkin resolution.
