Here is video of Sen. John McCain blasting President Obama for his antagonistic, gloating Press remarks earlier today on the “Fiscal Cliff” negotiations. McCain wondered, based on Obama’s actions, whether he really wants a deal to get done.
Here is video of Sen. JOhn McCain on the Senate Floor blasting President Barack Obama, saying of the Benghazi Scandal, “this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or engaged in a cover up, neither of which are acceptable to the American people.”
Here is video of Sen. John McCain responding to President Obama’s “come after me” remark at his Press Conference yesterday. Obama was responding with anger to word that Sen. McCain had said he would block any nomination of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to be Secretary of State. McCain called Obama’s response, “juvenile,” and then made it clear he will be coming after Obama by detailing Obama’s conflicting statements on what happened in the Benghazi Terrorist Attack.
Here is audio of Sen. John McCain today saying President Barack Obama’ mistake in his first two years was not that he did not tell a “good enough story,” as Obama has said. Instead, McCain said Obama “should not have foisted off ObamaCare onto the American people in the sleaziest process I’ve ever seen in the United States Senate – you know the ‘Cornhusker Kickback’, and the ‘Louisiana Purchase.'” McCain also cited Obama’s promise not to have lobbyists at the White House – “He didn’t. He had them at Blair House” (across the street from the White House.)
Here is video of Sen. John McCain on with Bill O’Reilly last night to talk about Barack Obama’s ongoing effort to exploit the killing of Osama bin Laden for himself. McCain said the truth is that any President would have made the same decision and that it is wrong for Obama to “politicize” the event. McCain told O’Reilly, “I’ve had the great honor of serving in the company of heroes. You know, the thing about heroes? They don’t brag.”
Here is video of Sen. John McCain reacting to President Obama’s Iraq Speech, where he blasted Obama for a “real lack of generosity of spirit” in not giving President George W. Bush credit for the Surge Strategy that brought victory in Iraq.
McCain said about Obama’s Speech:
“The part that really disturbs me the most – I’m not surprised that he wouldn’t give George Bush credit. That’s just in the DNA of the individual, apparently. But when he said, ‘Our withdrawal will be conditions based,’ and then contradicted that by saying ‘We will begin to withdraw (from Afghanistan) in the middle of 2011’ – that’s an ambiguity in Afghanistan that could cause us to fail. Sean, our friends are discouraged. Our enemies are encouraged.”
“Outside of Kandahar last Fourth of July, I met a police chief – non-corrupt police chief. He said, “Yeah, the Taliban are telling us you are leaving next year, and that those of us who cooperate, they are going to cut off our heads.” And I said, “Do you believe we are leaving? He said, “Yes!” So, the fact that we are telling these people there – our friends and our enemies – and again the President reinforced that ambiguity tonight – puts young Americans in harm’s way unnecessarily, because I don’t believe we can succeed unless we say it is strictly conditions-based.”
McCain could not be more right about this. What Obama is doing is a disaster. Common sense says you don’t tell your enemies when you are leaving.
