McCain says he's ready to work with Obama
UPI via MarketWatch ^ | 2009-03-10

Posted on 03/11/2009 8:46:10 AM PDT by rabscuttle385

WASHINGTON, Mar 10, 2009 (UPI via COMTEX) -- U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., says he's ready to work with President Barack Obama, the man who dashed his hopes for the White House last year.

From issues involving Afghanistan and Iraq to military procurement reform, McCain says he is ready to work with the White House, Politico reported. Last week, he had a breakfast meeting with Defense Secretary Robert Gates, appeared with the president at a White House media event and discussed how to squelch budget earmarks with Vice President Joe Biden.

"These are terrible, perilous times, so I will seek ways to work with the president of the United States," McCain in his interview with the Washington publication. "I don't want him to fail in his mission of restoring our economy."

Individual states need to insure that they have closed primaries so that the GOP candidate actually represents conservative ideas.

McCain is a disgrace to America and the Republicrat Party is full of leftists like this Vietnam 'hero.'

Hell, anyone can be a prisoner of war, but some are willing to fight to the death to avoid capture.

He is not finished breaking it lord McCain, but you have always been available to tear down what the liberals missed. Guess you need those independent moderate liberal votes in the next election. Nice job you and Bama did to end 'earmarks'.

LOL. You are too much. I can tell McCain is under your skin

Honestly, I welcome him claiming he wants to work with Obama publically as long as every so called attempt to work together breaks down with McCain complaining about the final bill he votes against, on the Sunday talk shows like he is now. What is saving us from McCain is Pelosi.

Unfortunately one of these days he will actually try to push an Obama/Pelosi bill I fear.

I hear he doesn’t like it with KY Jelly, but his knees do get to hurting after an hour or two.

mccain was in on the fix from the start. he was caught off guard when he brought Gov.Palin in and when she tried to express her true views, he and his handlers pulled the plug on her. mccain wanted to run, but not win obammma wanted to run, but made a blood pact with peelosi and the far far lefties to just read what's on the telprompter. his reward will be lots of pictures of him looking visionary along with kobe beef.

I believe you are right on with that. It was obvious that Sarah had much more independence and intelligence than he had figured on. Many always poo-poo conspiracies but I’ve lived long enough to know and experience that people will conspire to remove a good Scoutmaster, the president of the local Lion’s Club, School Board leadership and they’ll DARN sure conspire to manipulate others for the higest position in the world for some sort of benefit, either power, money, influence or all three.

McLame was just too obvious towards the end of his campaign, too quick to concede and too unbelieveably stupid not to pick up on golden opportunities. No corrupt, self-serving politician is THAT dumb.

On the other hand, if you actually meant what you posted, you can shove it where the sun don't shine.

I don't like him either but that's absurd with all due respect. McCain was shot down, badly injured and captured the second he landed. He was brutalized for years in prison where others even died as a result of the treatment. He refused to come home when offered and stayed with his buddies.

Say what you want about his politics and mercurial nature but he paid his dues and walked the walk.

No question of that. Have you ever been locked up and tortured for years.

It was a Dumas like survival and should not be ridiculed. He and the others..

Perhaps, but who cares? You seem to be under the impression that I am the all-time McCain defender/promoter. I'm not. That ended with his election bid. Besides, he's done enough for this country to earn the right to express himself politically the way he wants, even when I disagree with him (which is more often than you think).
