Before we trust John McCain’s judgment on #Syria…

Senator McCain said in Arizona this weekend that he was “unalterably opposed” to using American ground forces –“boots on the ground”– in Syria. Andy McCarthy thought that sounded familiar and recalled that John McCain also said he was “unalterably opposed” to Muslim Brotherhood participation in Egypt’s post-Mubarak government.

Right before he became in favor of it.

I hate to say it about a genuine war hero, but John McCain has become a old fool, lead more by his own vanity than by good sense and sagacity. His is not a voice the public should heed when making up its mind about Syria.

    Just a reminder that he should not be making up “his” mind, but voicing the desires of his constituents.

    Might want to mention that to the rest of the DC corruptocrats, as well.

    Then, there’s this:

    “And yet here’s McCain telling an Arizona radio host that if Obama went all in to really achieve something, he’d be indignant to the point of impeachment.”

    This is sad… McCain has been crumbling in public for the past several years. His daughter used to be the Stupid One.

    Long past time for him to enjoy his retirement, away from the public eye.

    John McCain served this nation well and with distinction what with an extended imprisonment in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. However, his credentials as a Senator are quite a different matter.

    In armed conflict, strategy is written against a definite challenger and with clearly defined objectives but we have yet to designate the threat Syria poses to our national security.

    Personally, I wouldn’t trust McCain or anything he says, ever. He’s been shown consistently to be as much and as big a liar as our Prevaricator-in-Chief, to the point I’d not belief him if he said he had to go poop.

    He’s been doing that over the country for decades.
