McCain had plenty of time today for a demagogic presser on Benghazi

tweeted by, David Axelrod ‏@davidaxelrod

Sen McCain had plenty of time today for a demagogic presser on Benghazi, but none 2 attend a classified briefing on it? http://bit.ly/PVswQv




AdamSerwer ‏@AdamSerwer (Reporter/Blogger for Mother Jones)
So after going on TV to trash Susan Rice McCain doesn't even show up to the classified HSC briefing on Benghazi today? http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83879.html?hp=r1

1. McCain's dickishness has reached new heights.

He and his BFF Lindsay are really starting to piss me off.

2. What do these people want?

There weren't any forces nearly close enough to effect a rescue. Are they asking Obama to violate the space-time continuum -- break the fabric of the universe in order to retroactively put a force in place to save the day?

These people are freaking nuts. And just for the record, did any of them ever hold a press conference asking why Bush didn't rescue everybody who was trapped in the WTC towers on 9-11? After Bush learned of the attack, did he issue any orders proclaiming that the law of gravity be suspended so that the towers would not fall down? Well, did he?

3. this whole Benghazi thing amazes me....

I would have thought, after President Obama pinned Willard's ears back in the second debate, that Benghazi would have been toxic..

it continues to amaze me how in penetrable the right winger bubble is to facts....

5. McInsane has to be the biggest sore loser in the history of presidential elections.

Four years later and he still can't get over his pathetic little grudge against Obama for beating him. What a dickwad.

7. It's the first time he ever lost and he can't handle it. He was shot down over Vietnam

and got out alive because his dad was an officer in the navy and he talked. He came home and used his military record to get elected Senator and the media has always kowtowed to him.. The old miserasble SOB should retire.

9. Your facts about his POW record are wrong.

His father was, indeed, the admiral in charge fo the war for a while. When the Vietnames found that out, they offered him a way home if he would talk. He refused and spent all that time there as a result. On that particular score, he was a stand up guy.

12. How did he get out alive and so many others didn't? I think he

left half his f---g mind in Vietnam. I don't give a damn if someone got the medal of honor, that doesn't give them a free ride to be an asshole all their lives.

15. the psychology of what's happened to that party, oldhippydude

. . .it's frightening to consider, for them, just how much their agenda is based on made-up stuff that they used in the election. Here we are, thinking that they're smart enough to abandon the over-the-top accusations and scandal-mongering, but their losses have made them absolutely rabid. Is it that they can't let go of the lies because they'd have to admit what horrible frauds they are, or, have they come to believe their own manufactured bull?

I suspect McCain is safe until he decides to retire.

16. Opportunist, he spent his campaign skirting McCain-Feingold

It allowed him to maintain the "maverick" label. He's a hypocrite.
