Poor John McCain: he must really be feeling irrelevant in his advanced age, what with real conservatives and Tea Party folks commanding more respect from more Americans than the senior Senator from Arizona.
Not to disrespect Mr. McCain’s service to the United States as a Naval officer, nor to diminish his time as a prisoner of war, but isn’t it a bit ironic that a man who suffered physical harm at a time when traitors such as Hanoi Jane were openly and actively criticizing his service to America now seems to be slinging the same kind of propaganda just two years after he failed miserably to promote American exceptionalism and conservatism when America needed him the most?
Of course McCain’s criticism of Republicans fits well with the template created by the propaganda arm of the American government, otherwise known as the American media. That’s why they chose him to be the Republican nominee in 2008, and that’s why they still love him.
So McCain is worried that America not repeat the lessons of the 1930′s, where the United States stood by while the National Socialist Party in Germany rose to power and exterminated millions of people based solely on their religion. Does that mean we need to be concerned about the ascension to power of Islamic extremists in the Middle East, or should we wait until after they build the ovens and force Sharia Law upon the rest of the world?
Maybe Senator McCain forgot that little part of history that records which political party was in power in the United States and stood idly by during that period of time.
I had to laugh at the article by the “American Pravda” where the authors (no longer are our media workers “reporters”) suggested that of all the GOP candidates currently announced, only former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney agrees with the Obama regime that we need to “bring our troops home as soon as we possibly can.” Then again nobody every accused Mr. Romney of being a conservative. I wonder if when Romney speaks McCain’s mouth moves, or vice versa?
It’s comforting to know that Sen. McCain is so concerned that America not become an isolationist nation or that the GOP become an isolationist party that helping Obama out politically has become his stated purpose in life. Thanks Mr. McCain, but we already knew that you preferred Obama to yourself as President!
When did American victory and success become so offensive to our elected leaders that they have to actively seek the political destruction of those trying to fix America’s problems? I’ll bet that’s a question Ronald Reagan would more likely be apt to ponder.
