When it comes to American foreign policy Sen. john McCain has been wrong for 30 years….ergo he has his head firmly lodged in his butt.
The only part of the American political scene that is worthy of my attention is the slap fight that McCain is having with Rand Paul……and the slap fight he is having with Obama. And all the slaps are over American foreign policy.
After a couple of weeks of Paul/McCain back and forth about foreign policy…..he, McCain, has once again turned his attention to Obama……I knew it would not take long , now that the war has begun…..McCain needs to poke at the prez as often as he can…..I believe he gets bonus funds for doing so from the M-IC special interests…..
In a 60 Minutes interview last night, President Obama asserted that the US had “underestimated” the looming threat posed by ISIS, but John McCain strongly disagrees. “We predicted what would happen if we didn’t leave residual force [in Iraq],” McCain tells CNN. “His intelligence comments—the intelligence people are pushing back hard. We predicted this and watched it. It was like watching a train wreck and warning every step of the way that this was happening.” The latest crisis, he adds, is “a direct result of [Obama's] failure to leave a residual force behind,” Politico reports. Are we currently at war? “Of course we are,” he notes.
It is just pathetic that this “real American hero” cannot keep his mouth shut. He refuses to believe that the Iraqi prez, Maliki, did not want American forces left in the country….NONE what so ever. Now in hindsight he may have screwed himself with that policy…..but was just that…HIS policy NOT Obama’s……..
This is really not that hard to grasp for someone with a small brain……..but apparently McCain has lost the capability to tell or recognize the truth……a common malady of and aging Republican. Just like most of the mental midgets in the GOP……they have lots of criticism but kinda thin on solutions ……but to be truthful…….they have NO solutions to any problem this country is facing.
At least McCain is consistent…….he has proven that he has NO grasp of international relations…..all he has is a mouth that will not stop and a brain that will not start.
