Yesterday I posted an article on the antics of McConJob and Lindsey Poo.  This is a follow up to that article.  Even before McCain attacked Susan Rice, he has been accusing the Obama administration of a cover-up and complaining that his Senate Homeland Security Committee had not been given any information on what happened surrounding the Benghazi attack.  Yesterday the representatives from several departments briefed that committee extensively on Benghazi, as scheduled well in advance.  Guess where McConJob was during that briefing?

16McConJobThis week, a number of Republican senators have strongly criticized the administration for failing to properly explain the circumstances surrounding the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Some of those senators failed to show up for a briefing on the attack Wednesday.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has been the leading congressional critic of the administration’s handling of the Benghazi attack and what he sees as the administration’s lack of candor with Congress on the matter. On Wednesday, he pledged to block the potential nomination of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton due to Rice’s statements on the attack. That drew a sharp rebuke from President Barack Obama at Wednesday’s press conference.

But although McCain had time to speak on the Senate floor and on television about the lack of information provided to Congress about the attack, he didn’t attend the classified briefing for senators Wednesday given to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, of which he is a member.

Committee ranking Republican Susan Collins (R-ME) called out McCain for skipping the briefing and said his call for a special committee to investigate the Benghazi attack was not necessary because the Homeland Security committee could handle it

Lawrence O’Donnell, Krystal Ball, and Karen Finney discussed McConJob’s hypocrisy and lies.

Note his calm demeanor when questioned about his whereabouts.  McConJob has to know that what he is doing is wrong, but doesn’t care. He cares only to attack Obama.  If he really cared about want happened, he would have attended the hearing.  Is he bitter over losing, or has dementia set in?

Sadly. House Republicans have started to parrot his nonsense.

  1. McCain sure is lying.  I remember when a UN team went into Iraq and searched for WMDs.  They found none  and reported back to Congress that there were none. That was the information we had.  We went to war with them anyway.
    Thousands of lives have been lost in that war.  I wonder if McCain ever lies awake at night feeling guilty over his support of that lie. 

  2. He is as phony as a $3 bill ! Vindictive vicious , senile old man—Time for Pasture , or wherever they put warn out , bleeping old goats!

    McSame as Bush has no credibility and reminds me of the elderly who says "Get off my lawn"…

  4. McCain is a bitter man and is willing to do the dirty work of the republian/tea party of taking down Obama Benghazi talking points omitted link to al Qaeda

  5. After listening to the talking heads re the McyC's whining session, it was discussed that he has more at stake than meets the eye – he is losing his committee seat at the end of the year and will be heading a committee on "Indian" affairs – essentially one that he has no public stature, and as a result has wanted to create a "committee" to investigate Benghazi at his command, which would give him more credence as a pundit on the networks! This gives a more compassionate look at a fading "star". He's making it difficult to "pity" him!

  6. McCain — "We will do whatever is necessary to block the nomination that is within our power as far as Susan Rice is concerned."
     
    What a crock!  Liar, liar pants on fire!  Amazing how short memories are and how deceitful the right is being.  As Karen Finney said, the WMD investigation took a year before coming out and saying 'no WMD' in Iraq but the UN team had already determined no WMDs.  Why should this be any different — that is getting the full goods on the situation?  I don't see this as being any different than the Condaleeza Rice situation back 2005.  McCain voted for her as Secretary of State despite the same issues.  As Romney said, sauce for the gander is sauce for the goose.
     
    Interesting how in both situations, we have two relatively young black women, one as a previous Secretary of State, one as a potential Secretary of State, and both with the last name of Rice.

  7. McConJob is becoming irrelevant. He knows it too so he is trying to make waves to make himself seem important.
