Once upon a time, John McCain was a voice for sanity in the Republican Party, but since his failed bid for the presidency, he has devolved from McCain into McConJob, infamous for trying to put Drill Baby Dingbat a heartbeat from the oval office.  Joining a colleague of equal intellectual flatulence, Lindsey Graham, he attacked a fine public servant with false accusations, because she was a messenger.  In yesterday’s press conference Barack Obama shut them down.

15Republicans_RiceAn escalating showdown between President Obama and leading Republican lawmakers over a deadly September attack in Libya turned angry and personal Wednesday.

Obama accused Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) of trying to “besmirch” the reputation of Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and to hold her potential nomination as secretary of state hostage to their demand for a broad Watergate- and Iran-contra-style investigation of alleged intelligence and security lapses surrounding the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, which killed four Americans.

If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me,” Obama said at his first news conference since last week’s election. Glaring across the East Room of the White House, he called the accusations against Rice “outrageous” and said she had “nothing to do with Benghazi.”… [emphasis added]

Rachel is absolutely correct that the attack by McConJob and Lindsey Poo against Rice are based on pure nonsense. For Obama to defend her and call out these two shameful hypocrites is most commendable. His refusal to abide non-issues from the Republican echo-chamber of InsaniTEA is a good sign that he will be stronger in his second term. He looked more like the man we elected in 2008.

As for Republicans, they do themselves a disservice, when they do not take the time to learn what is true, instead of parroting the BS spewed by their own propaganda ministry, Faux Noise. Calling Susan Rice "not very bright" smacks of racism.

The Republican Party loves to pick fights over non-issues for one reason. Whenever they pick fights on real issues, they lose.

  1. McCain is a foolish   1/2 senile old man— time for pasture for the ole fart—-Pension him off– any good he could do is done , past ,over–
    He is Shameful , as is Graham- the more they talk the more obvious the deficiencies –

  2. McCain demands more information on Benghazi. 
    It seems while McCain was giving a press conference condemning Obama for Benghazi, he skipped the meeting the administration had, giving more information about Benghazi, to Congressional leaders.
    McCain wants to attack Obama, he could care less about what actuallyy happened.

    When watching President Obama address this issue, it makes me proud to have him as my leader… Whoa

  4. I am just happy that the President confronted them.  He needs to do more of this, the Republicans might not be so eager to attack him if they know he isn't going to put up with it.

  5. How hard the "righteous" fall – McCain once represented a moderate honorable albeit Repug, he gives "moderate" in the GOP a new definition! I expect it from the fop "linsey" his cohort, but from a one time "hero" at a time when the veterans are supposed to be honored, he brings shame to them all!!!
    Perhaps McCain never recovered from his torture – don't let him inflict his torture on the country! I've had enough of his crap!
    Yes the President reacted correctly, but I've lost respect for this slimy ass altogether!

  6. Now THAT is leadership!  Thank you Mr Obama!
     
    We saw the clip from the 2008 campaign of a woman at a John McCain event, call Mr Obama a Muslim.  And John McCain denounced her and chastised her because it simply wasn't true.  Many of us were impressed with his integrity then.  But what happened?  To me, this is no different.  He deserves to be denounced and chastised for his comments about Susan Rice, which are clearly untrue.
     
    As for Lindsey Graham, talk about poopy heads!  He has shit for brains!  And these are some of the Republican/Teabaggers that the American people have elected to get things done?  Me thinks that the Republican/Teabaggers are having hissy fits over losing the election and vowing to be as obstructive and irrelevant as before.
     
    TC — His refusal to abide non-issues from the Republican echo-chamber of InsaniTEA is a good sign that he will be stronger in his second term. He looked more like the man we elected in 2008. — I so agree with you on this!
