McCain Goes Nuclear: “Shame On Barack Obama”
BuzzFeed ^ | APRIL 26, 2012 | BuzzFeed Staff

Posted on 04/27/2012 3:36:36 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Republicans amp up attacks on Obama for campaigning on Bin Laden's slaying. “Shamelessly turning the one decision he got right into a pathetic political act of self-congratulation,” says McCain.

Here's the Arizona Senator's full statement:

"Shame on Barack Obama for diminishing the memory of September 11th and the killing of Osama bin Laden by turning it into a cheap political attack ad. This is the same President who once criticized Hillary Clinton for invoking bin Laden 'to score political points.'

"This is the same President who said, after bin Laden was dead, that we shouldn't 'spike the ball' after the touchdown. And now Barack Obama is not only trying to score political points by invoking Osama bin Laden, he is doing a shameless end-zone dance to help himself get reelected.

Weirdly enough, McCain’s forbearance on Obama’s antics makes him a much more credible critic. Nobody can say McCain is a relentless carper who has had this longstanding chip on his shoulder about Obama.

Though John speaks the truth, he is about three years to late to be getting mad and speaking out against Obama. Is he a Racists now? He didn't want to be labeled that when he ran so he gave away his testicles. Must have found them now.

Well, McCain contributed to Obama’s propaganda roll-out on the bin Ladin raid, even though it was apparently based on information gathered by George Bush, and there is some suspicion that he delayed it for six months for political reasons—and then successfully played it as a distraction from the birther controversy and the forged COLB that he put on line.

BY abandoning conservative causes, the GOP is going to look spineless, arrogant, uncharitable and greedy.

Romney presidency is a no go at this point in time. THe electoral map is even a forgone conclusion now that states are becoming entrenched, no matter who the candidate is.

However, what is clear, is that Romney is going to be painted as greedy because he has abandoned the cause against abortion, gays, private health care and what not.

THey completely squandered the message and fell for the trap that liberals made right wing charity look like they were something to avoid.

If McCain had shown that kind of fight three years ago, things might be a lot better off than they are now.

In his defense, however, I have to admit that back then nobody had any real conception of how bad Obama was going to be. That’s a pretty lame defense, but I am willing to give him that.

It’s interesting. I am starting to get a sense that there are establishment elements in the country — elite left, right and moderate — that are starting to become very concerned with the way things are trending. When the NYT starts taking potshots at Obama, even mild ones, it’s a strong signal to the established wealthy that their interests are at stake.

The establishment elite, more than anyone else, are utterly dependent on their position in the system. And by that I mean the degree by which they can manipulate political power on behalf of their sponsors and themselves. If Obama upsets the applecart and overthrows the current political order, they go down with it — or a lot of them do, anyhow.

This, cannot be in their best interests, and sometimes you can even get the feeling the people like Pelosi know it. Oh sure, officially he’s still the Wonder Prez... but they have to be getting nervous. Obama really has shown that he plays nasty at a level that is simply not usually done at that strata.

Furthermore, ever action he takes outside of Constitutional authority weakens their Constitutional authority, and lessens the influence of those who look to congress for their share of the loot.

Again, all members of the political elite have an interest in the current political order. Obama’s utter incompetency has brought the nation to ungovernable straits and they have to be worried about restoring equilibrium.

That point might also explain why Sotomayor was so hard on the Obama administration during the recent hearing on Arizona’s immigration law. She’s telling Obama that she is a Supreme Court Justice now, and not his tool or his puppet.

I would put him at number two or three responsible for the possible destruction of America. BHO is first, obviously; however, McCain helped get him elected by running an appeasing campaign and then telling a woman what a good family man he is; etc.

That no one raised the possibility that he appeased the Democrats as a reflex action of appeasing the other Communists who kept him captive in then, North Vietnam, was an opportunity missed to get McWimp out in the primaries.

I cannot blame Obama for getting all that he can out of OBL’s defeat. It is the only positive development for the country in the last three years. I just wish he would give the military more of the credit. After all he was playing golf at the time.

“BY abandoning conservative causes, the GOP is going to look spineless, arrogant, uncharitable and greedy.”

I’d like to think you are correct, Judge.

But the RNC and GOP-E is so stupid that if Romney wins in Nov. and the House stays Republican, they will preen like peacocks and take ALL of the credit for defeating Obama.

The way to get the attention of the GOP is to cut off their funding.,,ie big donors. And that’s not gonna happen anytime soon, IMO.

Conservatives are stuck. We can’t live with em and can’t live without em either...Right now a third party isn’t an option.

“THe electoral map is even a forgone conclusion now that states are becoming entrenched, no matter who the candidate is”

Can you elaborate on this?

McCain is right about this, of course.

However, doesn’t this same statement kind of describe McCain’s entire career also? I mean how far and one man capitalize on being a POW?

God bless POW’s, but John McCain has turned being a POW into an endless act of self-promotion.

Cannot agree with that statement - Obozo the clown currently sleeping illegally in the people's White House was as honest and anyone could possible be with his intentions to "FUANMENTALLY TRANSFORM AMERICA".

‘Fundamentally Transforming the USA’

I certainly took him at his word.

Anyone who bothered to examine the Messiah knew he would be as horrible as he is. From his illegal presidential candidacy per Art II., Sec. I; U.S. Const. to his 100% Communist upbringing, to his association with Jerimiah Wright (which McCain refused to mention); etc.

McCain has no excuse; however, there may be an explanation. Maybe he carried his appeasing of the North Vietnamese Communists over to the appeasing of the Democrat party which is pretty much the Communist party now.

Not true.

I, as well as many other people new exactly how bad Oba m a was going to be. The fact that McCain couldn't, or wouldn't see it only demonstrates his incompetence.

I got serious bad vibes almost from the moment Teddy Kennedy put his arm around him and it went downhill from there.
The crusade against Bush was setting the stage for Obama.
They played on everyone fears over time...the Patriot Act and the War ( notice how we still have the Patriot act and we got involved in several conflicts above and beyond Iraq.
Then the press overlooked or dismissed everything about Obama’s past. I remember election night Peter Jennings? was joking around with several others about not even having had read Obama’s books.
Thats kind of what is bothering me about Romney. The way he is seemingly getting a pass. One of the worst economic times since the depression and he’s yucking it up about grits and so on.

And Bush Sr and Bush Jr as well.

GW Bush decimated our country with his spending and pandering to the RAT bastard demoRATs. GW Bush's "Islam is a religion of peace", "many roads lead to heaven", McCain-Feingold 2002, Trillion dollar prescription drug boondoggle, No child left behind, doing more to advance politically correct nonsense, and the list goes on. GW Bush may not be in the top 2-3, but he is in the top 5 of the worst presidents of our country. Which is really sad, because if he had any balls or pro-American conservative principles at all inside him, and if had governed as a principled conservative (especially with a GOP House & Senate), he could have gone down as one of America's greatest presidents. Instead he's in the top 5 worst presidents, and for good measure destroyed the Repub party between 2006-2008.

I think Obama’s statement about the killing of Osama had the first person pronoun 16 times, or something like that. He wanted to be sure the country credited him with the achievement. Someone contrasted that with George W. Bush’s statement when Saddam Hussein was captured—entirely focused on praising the troops who accomplished the deed.

I think there is a movement to the cities at the state level. So states like Washington which were red are now becoming blue and entrenched blue states like California.

So the electoral map is soon going to be set in stone for many major government-bigbusiness states which attract worker yokels and “hand me a job” for free types. It’s like locusts. They go there to work and then they vote again liberal, or their children do because the cities have their kids to brainwash at schools.

So, there is no way out of Obama and Democrates unless them and their language get pretty much impeached. However a blood bath between Democrates and GOP-E is more preferable than the GOP-E to blame conservatives while liberals stand there hoping the GOP-e will help them disarm us, so that full communist-socialist dictatorship (the end) is obtainable via the means (constant oppression to the end of times).
