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."

From the sound of things, it seems your ever-so-loathed Juan would not have been much better, if at all. So, my friend, it seems as though we were screwed either way...

As much as I despise McCain, I don't believe he would be trying to inhibit our RKBA with this newest ammo tracing/restriction brainstorm, likewise I don't believe he would be on bended knee begging the Taliban to come talk to him.

But I agree with any and all posters who have advocated that any future GOP primaries must be CLOSED primaries so true GOP voters are allowed in, but the traitorous 'Rats are kept OUT.

Another poster on another thread called McCain a doddering old fool.

He (I assume the poster was a he) was being overly polite.

Oh, just what we need! He misspent his whole campaign promising to sell out, so what's been the delay?

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..

It appears that one of the main effects of this past has been to make him too willing to be "friends" with just about anybody in the Senate or Congress, for any reason. He is no longer strong on the principles that our nation needs from a president, which go beyond the requirements for a hero aviator. His campaign was above his pay grade.

No, but I have a bayonet wound that runs completely across my abdominal area. The commie holding the rifle that had a bayonet affixed to it and did the damage is dead. I was able to kill him even with my guts hanging out.

I evaded capture in spite of the fact that I was severely wounded. I would have kept fighting until either many of those rats were dead or I was.

We were taught not to surrender but to fight. That's what we were sent there for!

If that's what blows your skirt up, have at it.

Kinda Barney Frankian for my tastes, but to each his own.

First I only added to someone else’s post. And now you resort to name calling, Nancy.

Thats why my comment started out "Continuing that line of comments is..."

I was pointing out that the comment was "Barney Frankien,".

I didn't call you names, Sluggo.
