John McCain with egg-on-face, Owes Susan Rice, President Obama & Americans A SINCERE APOLOGY!!!

John McCain's egg-on-face Benghazi comeuppance
by Steveningen

This is a beautiful sight to behold. This press briefing after he emerges from the Petraeus testimony will be marked as the moment when John McCain lost all credibility. His craven selection of Sarah Palin couldn't do it. His loss to President Obama couldn't do it. Even his bitter service on the Senate these past four years couldn't do it. Instead, an attack on our consulate in Libya and his surreal vendetta against the Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, has finally pushed his relevance forever over the edge.



MCCAIN: General Petraeus's briefing was comprehensive. I think it was important. It added to our ability to make judgments about what is clearly a failure of intelligence. And he described his actions and that of the, of his agency and their interaction with other agencies and I appreciate his service and his candor.


It was clear from his very brief and breathless words that he knew just how big a pile of elephant crap he had stepped in. Gone was the demand for the Susan Rice's head on a plate fire he and his toady sidekick Lindsey Graham exhibited just hours before. Gone was his bluster and confidence. That was just a sad man standing there realizing just how much respect he had thrown away. It's how I read it anyway, and if ever a man deserved that moment of complete shame in front of the cameras he constantly craves, that was the moment.

.............

And finally. John McCain, you owe Susan Rice, President Obama, and the American people a sincere apology.

1. That's about as close as we're going to get of any apology from this jerk.

I like the way he turned tail and ran as quickly as he could.

26. And yet we, the people, must demand it

or he and his rightwing cronies in the senate will continue to try and block Susan Rice's nom as SoS.

I want to see Lindsey apologize as publicly as he had excoriated the president and U.N. Ambassador Rice. If he's big enough to besmirch this honorable woman's reputation in public and before the cameras, then he should be as big to apologize when he realizes his slandering mistake.

2. You cannot reason with some people

 

and they will never apologize.

McCain should have been ignored in the first place. But people like him are always allowed a platform to denigrate anyone who looks or thinks in any way different from him. This has been going on for decades and getting worse. He will be back and the media will once again give him microphone.

4. IF he has any honor, we will hear an apology.

and it should not be a 5 second blurb, it should be as long as the time he took to "besmirch" his prey.

I used to admire him but this guy is someone I never knew. I guess losing does that to a person. Pity his family.

McNasty does have quite a temper, which prompted rumors of abuse during his Prez run fail.

This is a balls on Col. Saito moment in American politics.

The Prez should invite him, Little Lindsay and Yertle to the White House for an endorsement announcement.

24. It would be nice if he finally realized his relevence was over.

It will be interesting to see how he acts in the coming days after being shown how idiotic and foolish he has become.
Remember him dropping everything and going to Washington to save the country and our economy?
And he cursed us with The Snowbilly Grifter.
Go home to the rocking chair on the porch John before you embarrass you or the country again.

requesting that he do so. Ineffective, irrelevant, and pitiful.

31. I wonder if that egg on face is fried or raw?

McConnell, Graham, Ayotte and McCain all owe Rice a public apology. Every time one of them gets get in front of a camera...a group should shout, "Where's the apology?" "Where's the apology?" until every single one of them apologizes.

34. He's doubling down.

Asked Saturday at a press conference at the Halifax International Security Forum if anything he was told by Petraeus would change his assessment of what Rice knew and the statements she made, McCain said, "No, because I knew it was a terrorist attack from the beginning. People don't go to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and RPGs."

35. Thanks kpete.. McCain most certainly Does Owe a Sincere Apology to

Susan Rice and the American People.. and he needs to never tell another lie as long as he lives. That's the Only Way to Atone for his recent Deplorable Behavior.

40. wow, he knew he had humiliated himself. Sad chapter.

There was a time when I thought he was one of the few sane republicans. And his time in the prison camp was honorable. Now he will be remembered for Palin and this kind of shit. You'd think after the election they would stop listening to Fox.

Hope he takes Lindsay and his whole party down with him.
