McCain says he sometimes agrees more with Obama on foreign policy
dailycaller.com ^ | 05/01/2013 | Matt K. Lewis

Posted on 05/01/2013 8:13:02 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

It was largely overshadowed by the Boston bombing, but on April 18, Sen. John McCain gave what might have been an important speech at the Center for a New American Security.

It was clearly aimed at rhetorically pushing back at the non-interventionist Rand Paul wing of the GOP, but at the end of the speech, McCain took things to a new level: ”[T]here are times these days,” he said, “when I feel that I have more in common on foreign policy with President Obama than I do with some in my own party.”

McQueeg will agree with anything.

He’s a senile, smarmy, marry money to purchase a senatorship piece of excrement.

Shove it up your smelly Obama, McQueeg.

Health tip...please hold your breath for 24 hrs, senator RINO...it’ll improve your temperament....along with greatly improving our lives.

Hard to believe . . . It’s disgusting to think that he calls himself a Republican . . . and kisses and slobbers all over Obambi’s skinny, illegal-alien ass.

Well, of course he would.

Their views are so much alike on most issues.

Hey McCain!

I am all for intervention...

As long as we do it LEGALLY, with a true declaration of war.

AND

That those on who’s behalf we are intervening PAY US! and stop making the US taxpayers pick up the tap to police the world.

There is a broad bipartisan foreign policy consensus often at odds with our old traditions. Obama, McCain and Dick Cheney all discount President Washington’s farewell warning against foreign entanglements.

McCain is a big part of the problem in America today, dating back at least to his socalled “campaign” in 2008... when he spent much of his time reassuring us that it was perfectly OK to vote for Obama — a good fellow who was not really a Muslim or a Commie

What do you mean 'your own party'? Quit parking an R after your name, McCain & stinking up the Republican Party.

Go and be the democRAT that you are. Quit flying under a false flag.

Take your insufferable daughter with you too!!

...if not for the fact that he's an inveterate RINO whose present incoherence and irrelevance belies his honorable past as a POW.

First, the leaders in this country have to decide what a win is. It’s not providing schools, health care, cell phones, and bribed leaders who will say what we want to hear as long as our money keeps flowing to them.

The neocon fantasy of spreading democracy to the great unwashed was one of the dumbest foreign policy ideas ever concocted by those who love to send other people’s sons to fight.

McCain, in 2008 I voted for you because you were not 0bama and you gave us Sarah.
Now you are turning into 0bama and you don't have Sarah anymore.
Why should I like you now? Agreeing with 0bama is a sign of your malfunction. Please retire.

defining victory is easy.

we win, they lose.

And victory should ALWAYS have as it’s TOP priority, keeping OUR casualties and expenses to a minimum, while MAXIMIZING the cost in blood and treasure to our enemy until they capitulate and beg us to accept their surrender.

Until we relearn this age old lesson we will continue to have these endless wars that bankrupt us and cost us 10’s of thousands of lives.

Either fight all the way, or don’t fight at all.

But he IS a Republican as is Christie, at this time.

As time goes on, but soon, I hope to see all FR conservatives disavow all addictions to the current GOPe, i.e. the Republican Party. If all true conservatives were to leave that Party in bulk, it would self-destruct in less than 5 seconds. Or 10.

Fight for what? What was the goal of these invasions? These were wars without reason behind them. It was predictable that we would end up in a long guerilla war with no good outcome. Invading Afghanistan and Iraq were the dumbest military blunders since Custer decided it might be fun to pimp with a few Indians.

American blood to set in motion the "Arab Spring".

And despite current denial, the mainstream Democratic Party was also completely complicit in the madness.

John McCainiac said: ”There are times these days, when I feel that I have more in common on foreign policy with President Obama than I do with some in my own party.”

I am glad that Barack Obama beat John McCain in the 2008 elections. Barack Obama is the worst POSSIBLE President, but John McCain would have been worse.

Of course, the Democrats were complicit. There’s nothing a liberal politician loves more than a war. It gins up support for and dampens criticism of the government like nothing else.

It would also be helpful if we stopped intervening on the wrong side. Clinton helped the Albanian Muslim thugs take over Kosovo, while bombing Serb civilians from the air. And Obama helped the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists take over Egypt and Libya.

And McCain cheered them both on. He just LOVES to cross the aisle and fight wars on the wrong side.

McCainiac is not senile. McCainiac is not foolish. McCainiac is not Republican or Neocon.

McCainiac is a Communist liberal Democrat Islamic-loving America-hating Marxist Gungrabbing Piece of SHIT.

Some people say "John McCain, thank you for your service in the Air Force, but...."

*I* say, "John McCain, f*** you for your horrible, incompetent service in the Air Force where you repeatedly wrecked aircraft, then got your sorry ass handed to you by the Vietnamese and got shot down, then collaborated with the enemy to get special privileges when a Prisoner of War. You are a piece of shit and a disgrace to the uniform, and you were turned into a dedicated American-Hating Communist by your Vietnamese captors."

Yes exactly. Except we had people here singing his praises too last time he ran.

Many of us tried to tell them, but no, they were sure they had the best guy and couldn’t be bothered.

This guy has enabled more crap in Washington, D. C. than anyone. McCain was the highest dollar recipient in the Keating affair, and yet he skated.

He was a good friend of Ted Kennedy, shared way too many of his views, and set up a non-profit with Soros, Teressa Heinz Kerry, with financial support from the Tides Foundation.

He also sold out our MIAs so Vietnam could get MFN status.

I despise him.

So, McCain is saying Obama has continued the same interventionist path that became so unpopular in the 2nd term of Bush, and that the Republicans (at least some) have changed course and focused on peace through strength. I’d say, that’s fine...we should use this in our attempt to win over new voters who are sick of the interventionist foreign policy. Tie McCain’s warmongering to Obama, and lay out a better approach.

Actually, it's a dream of mine that, one day, many Dem and Indy women will wake up to the fact that they've been bamboozled by the feminists and media for decades. And that they will recognize that fighters like SP are American womens' true political heroes.

Of course, the male gays and uptown metrosexuals will always hate Sarah. To their own detriment.

As for going to the dark side, my family will know when it's time for me to be locked away in the spare bedroom upstairs. Actually, there are TWO spare bedrooms, if you ever need to be locked away Norm.
