HA! Sen. John McAhole Skipped A Briefing On Benghazi To Hold His Joke of a Press Conference, Nice!

What a Loser!

McCain Skipped A Briefing On Benghazi To Hold A Press Conference



Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is demanding a special select committee to investigate the events leading up to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya and has held around-the-clock television appearances pressing for a complete review of the incident.

But all of the senatorís media interviews and press availabilities may be interfering with his ability to gather information about the event. On Thursday morning, CNNís Dana Bash reported that McCain chose to hold a joint press conference with Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) rather than attend a closed-door briefing about the attacks:

I have to tell you something that just happened on Capitol Hill, and that is our senate producer Ted Barrett just ran into John McCain and asked about something that weíre hearing from Democrats, which is John McCain is calling for more information to Congress, but he had a press conference yesterday instead of going to a closed briefing where administration officials were giving more information. Well, Ted Barrett asked John McCain about that, and it was apparently an intense very angry exchange and McCain simply would not comment on it at all.

2. He needs to retire, get that cyst drained, get some sun in the Cayman Islands or something.

Like an opened bottle fine wine well past it's time is Senator John, angry old man shakes fist at clouds, McCain, it's time to pour out the bitter dregs and dispose of the empty bottle, straight into the the round file of history.

3. LOL ...

"Stop trying to give me what I'm demanding ... It interferes with what I am demanding", said an angry (ex-presidential candidate that made history for being the first presidential candidate to lose to a Black guy) John McCain.

4. Where are the democratic Senators?

Why aren't the Democratic senators going onto the floor and putting a stop to this crap?

They let crap like this go unchallenged way to often.

McCain may be a formal POW but he shouldn't be allowed to go unchallenged.

6. The look on Kelly Ayotte's face says it all

"How the fuck did I get roped into this fiasco?" I guess trotting out one of their wimmin' is supposed to help their image. One word. FAIL...

7. He should be thrown off the committee then

If he won't do his job, he should be replaced. We would.

14. Hypocritical

Angry Old Men.

Now go and investigate yourselves and the eight years of the Bush/Cheney administration.

If you won't do that the STFU and let the adults in the room govern.

15. I think to most people they just look like fools and extreme partisans.

The Republicans, after heavy losses last week, STILL don't get it.
