McCain hires controversial Syria analyst who inflated credentials
Foxnews ^

Posted on 09/29/2013 5:40:14 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

Sen. John McCain has hired a controversial Syria analyst who recently was fired by one D.C. organization and resigned from another after it emerged that she inflated her academic credentials.

The Republican senator's office confirmed to Fox News that Elizabeth O'Bagy was hired as a legislative assistant, and will start work next week.

"Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year. I look forward to her joining my office," McCain said in a statement.

This just goes to illustrate, once again, how unfit McCain is to hold any sort of position of power. As bad as obama is, there is little doubt in my mind, now, that McCain would have been as bad, if not worse.

Its McCain. His sense left him ages ago. Now he is a foolish old man.
And yet....the GOP continues their support of him

Obaggy? Senility definitely has taken its seat on McPains addled mind.

And her willingness to lie is just an added bonus.

It’s just the Saudis having one agent taking care of another agent. What’s the problem. It was only a question of whether it was going to be Johnny or Lindsey doing the hiring.

He is no longer of full mental facilities and his staffing has been slowly infiltrated by subversives, McCain at this point is living in a reality only existent in his own befeebled mind, and is held hostage by gatekeepers who only have their personal self interests at heart.

Interesting that these gatekeeper staffers are now so confident they own McCain’s office, title, prestige and power so thoroughly that they would do something this blatantly antagonistic towards the AMerican voter, so soon after the controversy, and without the modicum of public regret over their previous failures of their strategy to improve their personal self interests of having the US invade Syria.

All the jokes about Reagan being senile in the last several years of his Presidency, if McCain had won the Presidency, all those jokes would have been recycled with him as the punchline at this point.

With either McCain or Romney, we’d be fighting the same battles over ObamaCare, amnesty, debt ceilings, wars everywhere, etc. With either, we’d probably have Kerry as Secretary of State. Plus more progressive judges packaged as moderates.

Only way I can think McCain would have been worse is wars. We’d probably be attacking Australia over their new environmental policies by now if he was in office.

Rewarding corruption in government is every bit as treasonous as waging war on the American People.

LOL. Don’t make it more complicated than it is: McCain’s focused on McCain. He’s the most important thing in McCain’s life. That’s why he’s so angry at Cruz. Cruz took the spotlight.

I do not believe it is dementia. He exhibits the classic symptoms of moral degeneracy. He is incapable of maintaining a coherent position on anything. He has lost his mooring, if he ever had any, and is wandering aimlessly.

Songbird McCain. Checkout YouTube. Not convinced but there are some compelling aspects such as why did McCain help Kerry shut down search for Vietnam war MIAs. It’s charged that he didn’t want north Vietnamese records opened which could corroborate theories he collaborated.

Translation: Elizabeth is a hottie, and like all dirty ole men up here in the Senate, we like to pretend they're attracted to our power and money, so we like to keep a few around the office to feed our delusion. Now, where is that viagra?

Reminds me of the old joke about the CEO hiring a financial guy. Three candidates. He asks the first what is 2 plus 2, guy smiles and says for of course. CEO says not you, same question to number 2. He says well, how about a number between 3 and 5. He says, not you either. Says to third candidate what is your answer. Guy says what do you want it to be...CEO says you are hired and start today.

McLame just wants what used to be known as a yes man, this time it is a yes woman.

McCain in a nutshell:

He was a member of the "Keating 5" in the 1980s, helping to cause the S&L crisis.

In 1993 he was one of the authors of the report that stated "no compelling evidence that proves that any American remains alive in captivity in Southeast Asia."

He has close ties to the gambling industry.

His signature legislative contribution is "McCain/Feingold", a bill regulating "soft money" contributions, you know, like free trips on Keating's corporate jets. As a side note he doesn't have to worry about things like campaign contributions - His wife is the heiress to the Hensley & Co. fortune. Hensley distributes for Anheuser-Busch and if you drink Bud in AZ, you support McCain's re-election efforts.

He once supported closing Gitmo but shut up about it in the run-up to the 2010 primary.

He coauthored the DREAM act but voted against it in 2010.

He wants the US to get involved in the Syrian mess.

He stabbed conservatives in the back on the cloture vote and went on to bad mouth those who would de-fund Obamacare.

On the other side, he's vocally pro-life, opposed gays in the military and opposed most of the bank bailout legislation in 2009.

I think most conservatives, and even a lot of Republicans, in Arizona would be very happy if he were to take early retirement.

Lets be honest.....from a hundred senators...there’s fifty of these dimwits who are led by gatekeepers within their staffs. They show up on some show, run through a couple of 3x5 cards and put up an act. I appreciate the British system where you show up in Parliament and capable of arguing points.
