Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday walked back comments that President Obama was "directly responsible" for the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub that left 49 people dead. "I misspoke," McCain said in a statement. "I did not mean to imply that the President was personally responsible. I was referring to President Obama's national security decisions, not the President himself."

Typical spineless Rino.
Republicans tip over each other to apologize while Democrats never do.
That’s why Trump is hated by both sides.
Some one reminded him of the pictures with farm animals......
Dang I just saw the original story and was thinking, “Way to go McCain...for a change” and then, poof, he’s back to weenie McCain
Shoulg be Sen. John McCain (RINO-Ariz.)
Yeah I heard that. He’ll probably end up blaming Trump just to make up to his friend Obama.
This is why I like him. At least hes not a mealy mouth weasel that constantly bows and grovels. He seems to have the facts before opening his mouth. Its really refreshing to have a fighter willing to go bare knuckles with the dems (that includes RINOs).
Spineless worm - bump for later...
Reminiscences of ‘08.
One and the same. He was correct the first time, and the Republicans wonder why they are intensely despised by the party's base? They have so immersed themselves into political correctness, that they have absolutely become worthless adversaries to the forces that want to destroy this country. Instead they meekly do their bidding as they cower in fear of the opposition.
He’s a hollow reed blowing in the winds of popularity.
So he separates Obama from Obama’s administrations policies?
Forget about Obama’s and Hillary’s aid in creating ISIS. In this instance, the more salient question is how Obama’s hug a Muzzie policies affected the FBI’s ability to prevent this.
With what we already know, there is no other explanation for the shooter to not have been at the very least on the terrorist watch list.
WWTDD? Not that you can bet.
Ah yes, the ole GOP playbook of only criticize Obama’s policies, never the one himself.
McCain forgot protocol for a minute there.
But Obama blamed us and didn’t backtrack.
I’m sure no here is surprised...
