McCain Smashes Obama Back: You're Incompetent or Corrupt

Allbiz - PWCM - JLA 2012/11/15 20:01:26

Sen. John McCain launched a fierce counterattack on Barack Obama yesterday after Obama arrogantly called McCain’s criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice “outrageous” and said critics of Rice should “go after me.”

McCain, speaking on the Senate floor, went straight for the jugular:

“This president — this administration — has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or been engaged in a coverup, neither of which is acceptable to the American people. I speak as a friend of Christopher Stevens, I speak as a person who knows something about warfare, I speak as something of an authority — that this attack could have been prevented if the information on the ground had been taken into consideration.”

McCain wants a congressional Select Committee to investigate what happened in Benghazi and how the Obama Administration reacted. Paraphrasing Senator Howard Baker of Tennessee during the Watergate investigation, he said bluntly:

"There clearly is a need because there is a huge credibility gap among the American people because of the [contradictory statements about the attacks] beginning with the President of the United States. What did the president know? When did he know about it? And what did he do about it?"

McCain then reminded Obama that although he is the president, he is not the king:

"He really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. I’m a United States Senator. We have our responsibilities, we have our duties, and we are not picking on anyone here."

And McCain connected the dots by noting that whatever Rice said, her marching orders came from upstairs:

"Those talking points did not come from the CIA, they came from the White House. Who at the White House gave her those talking points?"

Obama might do well not to cross a man who’s survived more serious issues than a verbal attack

    He's both openly corrupt and patently incompetent.
    But the mob rigged the vote for him, so you KNOW they're getting a HUGE pay-back from OUR pockets.

    Obama made a big mistake in talking to McCain, like he did. He insulted most of the American people and the military. Obama talks more and more like a dictator. He lacks in class. Majority of the American people will be supporting McCain, before they support Obama. Obama has misunderstood his job description and someone needs to remind him that he and his administration need to start abiding by the Constitution and our laws. McCain might just be that person who might get results, cause no one else is doing anything about these renegades!

    McCain came out of yesterdays (Friday, 11-16) hearings with his tail between his legs. Everything Petraeus said supported Obama's version of events. We'll hear no more from McCain on this subject.

    Were you paying attention? Everything Petraeus said contradicted Obama. You liberal sheeples don't have two brain cells to rub together.
  • ManBearPig 2012/11/16 18:02:01
    Its good that some light has came out from the closed-door testimony of Petraeus is showing that his two testimonies do not line up and that the talking points Rice received did not come from the CIA's talking points

    I wouldn't be surprised if this situation begins bringing more and more truth out until congress actually does something about it

    At least McCain's not a trash mouth broad like the one I'm replying to.

    According to Obama in his press conference the other day, Rice had absolutley nothing to do with Benghazi. If that's the case, then why did Obama send her out to five TV news shows to be his spokesman to the world with her lie about some film that really did have absolutely nothing to do with Benghazi?

    Obama is a liar and McCain knows it. And he's exercising his duty as a Senator to get to the truth.

    BTW, there are female senators also questioning Rice's culpability. Why aren't you slut talking about them?
  • Nestofa... Allbiz ... 2012/11/16 14:38:00
    waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah cant handle a woman? or just ones who have the verbal ability to cut it down to simple manwords???
    LOL check out republican Joe Heck, who is trying to compare C Rice with S Rice, and how he failed... making the same bs up and failing miserably. Condi wasnt responsible but Susan was? PUHLEEZE got so much hypocrisy from your side its hysterical
    SO why wasnt mccain there at the briefing, listening and learning, ??? oh thats right, like you he cannot handle facts....
    Republican women dont need me to be talked bad about, they do well enough on their own.

    Susan Rice is Obama's puppet. His skirt to hide behind.

    And she's a wimp.

    Obama's defense of her, saying, "come after me" is the silliest, stupidest, and most juvenile thing he's done in public in his 4 years. Is he sdaying that she is like some little delicate flower that can't fend for itself? Is he telling America that he wants to make her SoS where she will have to stand toe-to-toe with our enemies but she isn't strong enough to handle herself before an American senator? Is he saying that the most visible highlite of her career in the UN is that she allowed herself to be involved in something she knew nothing about and was even stupid enough to allow herself to be a spokesman with no substantiation behind her lies?

    Susan Rice is nothing more than another weakling on Obama's staff whose career in public service has been tarnished and possibly ruined by the Oh Great One.

    Obama is a liar. Plain and simple but he's now looking pathological.
  • realist 2012/11/16 04:58:51
    Just another instance where the public has valid questions and the president go's;

    "Look at the bunny"

    "Over here, seriously, look at the bunny"

    It is one or the other. Either way Obama should answer for his actions or inactions, and be held accoutable.
  • troy.r.... Christi... 2012/11/16 12:50:07
    LOL do you really think a Democrat has every been held accountable for anything they said. That only applies to non democrats, thus the appeal for most democrats. Its like being a Christain all you got to do is say you except the lord Jesuse Christ as your savor and all your sins will be forgiven. Sorry my bibble study from when I was kid, had more to it then just that. All your sins will be forgiven and you will not be able to live as you did before. In other words, you change your ways after rebirth, If your ways do not change your still a sinner.

    Same applies here Democrats are never held accountable for what they say, and can be wrong 99 out of 100 times and you will only here about the 1 time they were right about something.

    Sorry but in my book, that is bad batting average.
