Wow, McCain found his testicles. Too bad he didn’t discover them in 2008; he could have won.
From the Washington Examiner.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., responded to President Obama’s challenge that he “go after me” over the Benghazi attack by declaring him either incompetent or corrupt and suggesting he is not taking the attack seriously.
“This president — this administration — has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or been engaged in a coverup, neither of which is acceptable to the American people,” McCain said on the Senate floor today. “I speak as a friend of Christopher Stevens, I speak as a person who knows something about warfare, I speak as something of an authority — that this attack could have been prevented if the information on the ground had been taken into consideration.”
……McCain was responding to the “umbrage” that Obama took with his criticism of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who did a round of Sunday talk shows promoting the idea that a Youtube video was the proximate cause of the attack.
……McCain expressed shock at Obama’s counterattack. “He really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. I’m a United States Senator,” McCain said. “We have our responsibilities, we have our duties, and we are not picking on anyone here.”
But he certainly blamed Obama for Rice’s performance. “Those talking points did not come from the CIA, they came from the White House,” he said. “Who at the White House gave her those talking points?”
