McCain, Graham – Dropping the HNIC Like a Hot Potato

04 Jul

On this 4th of July it is heartening to see at least nor every Republican hates America. I mean, a lot of conservatives do the wave the plastic flag thing, and talk the talk about “loving our troops”…

But when push  to shove are absent on every single Veterans BIll, absent in COngress or the Senate in making the hard decisions for a country in crisis, and absent during the most critical decisions of the day because the man who sits in the Presidency doesn’t look like them…

Who spew hate over the nations airwaves for black and brown people, and then demonstrate their patriotism with pepper induced tears…

Who accuse less fortunate Americans who have lost their jobs and livelyhoods (and often homes) of being “lazy”…

Nice to see on this Independence Day -a return to American values.

More fallout for Uncle Mikkie’s Foot in Mouth on “Obama’s War”

Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, both senior Republicans on the Armed Services Committee, denounced Mr. Steele’s comments, joining a chorus of Republican criticism.

Mr. McCain of Arizona said that Mr. Steele’s remarks, made at an event last week, were “wildly inaccurate, and there’s no excuse for them,” adding that Mr. Steele had later told him in an e-mail message that his comments were misconstrued.

“The fact is that I think that Mr. Steele is going to have to assess as to whether he can still lead the Republican Party as chairman of the Republican National Committee and make an appropriate decision,” Mr. McCain said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” broadcast from Kabul, Afghanistan, where he and Mr. Graham were visiting troops with a delegation of Republican lawmakers.

Mr. Graham of South Carolina said in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he was “dismayed, angry, upset” over Mr. Steele’s remarks, calling them “uninformed, unnecessary, unwise, untimely.”

“This is not President Obama’s war; this is America’s war,” he said, adding, “I want to separate myself from that statement. And the good news is Michael Steele is backtracking so fast he’s going to be in Kabul fighting here pretty soon.”

Senator Jim DeMint, Republican of South Carolina and a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, also described Mr. Steele’s remarks as “inaccurate” and “unacceptable.”

“Chairman Steele needs to apologize to our military, all the men and women who’ve been fighting in Afghanistan,” Mr. DeMint said in an interview on“Fox News Sunday.” “This is America’s war. It’s not Obama’s war.”

    I am loving Michael Steele. He is making a fool out the Republicans because he knows they can’t get rid of him and he is saying whatever the phuck he wants.

    I almost fell out of my chair when he told that reporter that he and Obama had a smaller margin of error for making a mistake because both of them were black.

    This is what the Republicans get for appointing Steele to be counter to Obama just because they are both black males and all they can do is take it up the azz until Steele’s term is up in January. LOL

      Now, amazingly they are floating the idea of having the Sno’ Ho’ as the new Party Chairman!

      I can see DNC Chair Tim Kaine licking his chops and saying…. “Make my day!”
